Have an Existing Research Provider?

Most agencies that do market research are working with internal panels or panel-based market research providers. However, these take weeks to turn around results and panels—both internal and supplemented—can often suffer from bias (as they are unconsciously preconditioned to answer positively) and survey fatigue if used too frequently.

Pollfish solves this by avoiding panels altogether, providing insight from a broader population actively engaged in their mobile devices. This approach saves time and provides better data from known and prospective audiences—even insights from competitive audiences.

Market research that builds better campaigns

Data and creative are becoming increasingly intertwined, challenging today’s agency strategists with creating unique, revenue-driven ad campaigns to reach target audiences and continuously improve client relationships.
