Case studies

Online Chocolate-Lover Panel gets 85% penetration and high completion rate

Read about how we managed to achieve an incredibly high penetration with our recent online panel for chocolate lovers. Not only did we recruit the participants, but we fully managed engagement and participation levels as well, which enabled our client to focus their efforts and time on analysis and obtaining data. We also discuss a recent opportunity which allowed us to recruit and interview (through our own MRFGR moderation team) a group of expats who had travelled to the UK for studying purposes.

At the start of the year, MRFGR were approached by a client who wanted to conduct research into a sample of chocolate lovers to identify their perception of different brands, eating habits, and purchasing decisions across a 3 month period.

MRFGR recruited a panel of participants from a range of demographic backgrounds with the prerequisite that participants were "Chocolate Discovers", a type defined by our client's pre-existing segmentation tool.

Recruitment was mainly achieved through utilising MRFGR's pre-built panels of individuals who regularly purchased sweet foods, and (more...)

The Last 7 Days at MRFGR

At MRFGR, we’ve realised something.

Over the years, we’ve worked with a broad range of clients, in numerous sectors, overcome significant challenges, and made success stories out of our own projects… but we weren’t sharing this information with anyone. This is why we’re taking the approach (from today) to regularly update our clients, respondents, and everyone in between of what we’ve been up to for the past 7 days.

Read about the variety of projects we've been working on recently and our adaptability when it comes to working within medical, consumer and b2b sectors. From online surveys and depth interviews, to online usability testing, we discuss how we sourced fully verified and suitable participants, achieved high attendance, and delivered results to our client both effectively and honestly.

Client References

We have used MRFGR to recruit participants for multiple research projects with varied samples sizes and sometimes challenging recruitment criteria. They have a calm and professional manner, providing us with regular updates in the lead up to and on the day of research projects. Multiple touch points with participants approaching the study date ensures drop-out rates are extremely low with replacements usually being found very quickly if necessary. I look forward to working with MRFGR in the future.

Hi Stephen

Both groups went very well - a key client attended the first and was very pleased. Very articulate groups, really impressed especially considering it was such a difficult recruit (recruiting Somalis).

The hotel was great too, incidentally, a nice place to do groups.

Many thanks for your hard work on this - hope you feel it was worthwhile!

"It's always a pleasure to work with MRFGR. They are a great partner who consistently recruit high calibre respondents to take part in our research projects and workshops. Always professional and very reliable."

The groups in Chipping Norton went really well thank you. We had a full turn out to both of them.

I would just like to say that we have been very impressed with the number of participants you have managed to recruit to these groups, your regular updates on the recruitment progress, and your follow up contact. We have also had very positive feedback from the participants about their contact with you. We will definitely consider MRFGR in future when wishing to recruit participants to similar groups.

I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the work that you recently carried out for us. Stephen and MRGR were recommended to me by a colleague. It was important for us to find a company who could understand and deliver our brief on a very tight schedule. Stephen demonstrated a level of knowledge and professionalism that gave us the assurance that this would be achieved. The result was a report that clearly met the objectives of our brief, was presented in a professional manner, which then enabled us to present the findings to our customer with confidence. We would not hesitate to recommend or use Stephen again.

"MRFGR is the first external company we have used for sourcing focus group attendees.  Although we have organised many groups previously I would definitely use MRFGR again.  The costs were reasonable and the attendees we have received have been exactly the right target groups.  The level of communication has been satisfactory too with regular updates leading up to each focus group.  Matthew has managed all of the groups we have requested and there has been no issues.  I would recommend trying MRFGR."

"Our organisation, the Solicitors Regulation Authority, has used MRFGR to support our recruitment requirements for focus groups and public events and we have always found their service and achievements to be excellent. They have demonstrated a commitment to meet last-minute requirements in a calm and professional manner and we would not hesitate to recommend them."

"MRFGR recruited four focus groups for our research across a variety of settings, including socio-economically deprived urban communities and very small rural communities. Despite the significant challenges these settings posed MRFGR ensured that all our focus groups were fully attended, and with a minimum of fuss. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for recruitment work."

Murray G - Nottingham University Project

"MRFGR were not the cheapest firm who pitched for our work, but I am happy that I decided to go with them. I feel that their database is extensive and this combined with their excellent client service means that they offer a higher degree of reassurance and peace of mind than other recruitment agencies we have worked with in the past. When we had a problem to resolve at short notice they did this very quickly. I would happily work with them again."

"When I phoned Matthew at MRFGR I was in a bit of a pickle. I needed to recruit 25 consultant pediatricians for telephone interviews (with minimal incentive) across 8 countries, two of which were non-English speaking. Oh, and I needed to have recruited and completed the interviews in 12 working days. Surprisingly, Matthew wasn't taken aback by this and set about the task with enthusiasm. Even against these challenging timescales, Matthew was able to deliver all 25 consultants - a phenomenal effort. I was extremely happy. And, more importantly, so was my client."
