OBB: teens and young adults reading news, USA & Brazil

The client brief

A global technology firm wanted to understand news and information consumption behavior of 16-24-year-olds in the USA and Brazil. FieldworkHub was asked to recruit 40 respondents per market to complete a six-month online bulletin board (OBB), with three 20-minute activities each month. The client was keen for us to find a mix of gender, age, ethnicity/race, socio-economic status and location within each country.

Research methodology

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

FieldworkHub delivers

Once we had recruited an appropriate mix of respondents in each country, we worked with the client to get respondents on-boarded to the bulletin board platform (Recollective).

During the OBB we assigned a dedicated team in each market to track and encourage activity completion. In Brazil, our local language manager read through all responses and, where required, prompted respondents for more detailed answers. In each of the first five months, ten participants in each market were invited to participate in a 60-minute online focus group, and in the final month ten participants took part in-depth interviews (IDIs). The groups and interviews in Brazil were conducted by FieldworkHub’s local moderator and simultaneously translated by our vetted interpreter.

With our team’s encouragement, we managed to retain 90% of the participants in the USA and 97.5% in Brazil to the end of the six-month period. Our client was delighted with this outcome, as it exceeded their expectations

The team at FieldworkHub have been an absolute pleasure to work with. We threw in a mid-fieldwork curveball requesting additional sample and the team accepted the request with no issues in delivering. The quality of the sample was high and I have no hesitation in recommending FieldworkHub and look forward to working with them again.
