  • General, specialist and custom market research panels

    In a nutshell MRFGR provides market research panels for both online research i.e. online survey or polls, and for off-line research, such as for product testers, focus group participants, specialist respondents i.e. doctors, lawyers, high level business executives etc. Generally, we can provide any market research panel that you require. Not only do we hold specialist panels but we can also provide custom panels that meet your exact requirements. So if you’re actually looking for 35 - 55 year old males, that fly business class at least 5 times a year, we’ll create a project panel based around those exact requirements, and within an advised period of time you will have full and total access to the panel as when you need them.

    MRFGR also offer the opportunity to select the way in which you would prefer to manage your panel, either with a self-managed option or with MRFRG managing it for you.

    Unlike the competition, we actually speak to our panels.

    Unfortunately the market research panel market is teeming with what could only be described as trash panels, generally made-up from unconfirmed email list providers, dubious company partnerships, or in some cases, responses coming from automated reply programmes or a data entry team based in Bangalore completing 1000’s of a surveys a day.

    Market research panel providers that state they have ‘the largest’ and most internationally spread panels have little in the way of control measures to ensure that their respondents are not only real, but are of good quality; after all how could they when they purport to have over 6 million members?

    Although we don’t attest to be the largest panel out there, unlike many of the other market research panel providers MRFGR can ‘guarantee' real, high quality panel members.

    How do you ‘guarantee’ high quality market research panel members?

    MRFGR are unique and distinct in that our primary specialism is respondent recruitment for focus groups, depth interviews, mystery shoppers, and host of what we’d call ‘real-world, off-line’ projects, hence the majority of our panel have been used in ‘real-world’ market research projects, and for those that have not, they have been rigorously screened through our 84 question registration process and often also spoken to in assessing their suitability for other such off-line market research projects.

    As an extra service we even provide the option of receiving non-anonymized data, whereby the market research panel’s permissions are sort to disclose their contact details to the end client, thereby allowing the client to communicate with their respondents in respect to their responses.

    We guarantee no-one else in the industry can even purport to going to these lengths to ensure quality market research panels!

    How does the MRFGR market research panel system work?

    All respondents on our market research panel are asked to complete a series of 84 questions, which ensures we have an excellent understanding of each individual. When a project is presented by the client, we filter the panel database according to the strict screening requirements, these panel members are then invited to take part in the survey/poll and - as an extra insurance measure - are then re-screened via the online survey form.

    What are the 84 questions posed in the MRFGR market research panel registration requirement?
