Research methodology

These are the methodologies FieldworkHub used during this research process to help our client achieve their desired results.

FieldworkHub delivers

For Phase 1, FieldworkHub recruited 30 respondents for an online bulletin board (OBB), which required them to complete around two hours of activities over two days and answer a few follow-up questions from the bulletin board moderator. For Phase 2, twelve respondents were re-contacted to take part in 90-minute online dyads conducted via Zoom. Recruitment challenges included the need for respondents to fall into particular segments based on the client’s typing tool, as well as a change in the quota for people owning particular brands of espresso machine. Other recruitment criteria included finding a representative mix of demographics, as well as a mix of small appliances owned. We managed to complete the project without any drop-outs from amongst the 30 respondents.
