The poocho way

Research in action.

The first step towards building a great business is knowing your customer. At Poocho, we use digital methods to understand the experiences of your target audience. Why digital? Because technology allows us to connect with people anywhere, anytime. And because, you'd agree, our online selves are mere extensions of who we are in the "real" world.

Research takes two forms - primary and secondary. Secondary research is about competitive analysis, lots of reading and interviews with you, the client. Primary research is when we communicate directly with your target audience using a variety of multimedia touchpoints. The end result is rich media customer journeys, personas and deep-dive insights into the lives of your people.

Statistics

We collect survey data in order to construct a baseline understanding of our target audience. This generally takes the form of single choice, multiple choice and ranking questions.

Quantitative data reveals patterns that we unpack using other methods. It is just the beginning of our insights journey.

Photographs

A picture is worth a thousand words. It is also worth a 1,000 surveys. Photographs help us build visual narratives around data-in-context.

They also expose the environment in which an activity or behavior is taking place. This gives us an added dimension of understanding.

Audioscapes

Audio recordings offer a truly sensory experience. We get to focus on what the person is saying, their tone of voice, and even the auditory textures of their environment.

Audio-based data collection also helps us overcome language barriers and are great for those participants who have hectic schedules or simply prefer talking over typing!

Videos

Videos allow us to experience life in motion. We use videos for conducting interviews, observing behaviors and rituals, and for real-time collaborative exercises and workshops using Miro.

Video-based insights are the most personalized and least structured form of engagement with participants.

Live Chats

Smartphone-based live chats are real-time conversations between participants and a researcher. Think of them as chat-style short interviews.

Live chats are very useful for deep dives, instant clarifications and synthesis in the middle of a research campaign. Emojis, gifs and memes make for an even livelier exchange!
