DIY Tools: What advantages do they bring to the Market Research?

We’ve been too long on the Internet to deny that the DIY (Do It Yourself) tendency is more than a passing trend or fashion, it is a statement that is here to stay. Surely, you´ve seen a tutorial on Youtube, or have googled DIY face covers at times when they were sold out at drugstores and supermarkets.


But before we get into our business, here’s a brief explanation of what is the DIY tendency: The activity of making or repairing things by yourself. Normally this concept is associated with manual activities, for example, the decoration of a room at your home, or the repair of old clothing. On its side, the use of technology has advanced and proliferated so much that, naturally, it has its own DYI tool now.

These current times, and maybe potentiated by the pandemic’s effects, are characterized by consumers looking for immediate satisfaction: Delivery times, benefits obtained, costs and complexity reductions, etc. In other words, we are looking for things to be easy, fast and efficient.

This way, as an example, industries like Beauty and Personal Care have launched facial cleansing recipes with food ingredients, or the Technology Industry, they have surprised us with countless tutorials for repairing or upgrading a gadget or even a software. Meanwhile, the Market Research Industry is not being left behind, an example: the Netquest DIY Survey Tool.

The Netquest DIY Survey Tool is the most recent addition to our services portfolio. It is the result of theDIY 2 sum of our online access panels, which you know so well, plus MOPIAR, the Argentinian technology that offers a collection and processing data system with the construction of indicators, variables and data georeferencing. This way, obtaining quality data in an easy and quick way stop being something impossible thanks to the combination of the DIY questionnaire programming software and Netquest’s certified quality panels.
