It's been a while since you last heard from us... but that's only because we've been working on some new and exciting things, publishing new content, and participating in events around the world.
Here's what DigitalMR has been up to!
In the Press
DigitalMR is featured as one of the Top 7 Social Media Research companies in the October 2017 issue of Quirk’s Marketing Research Review magazine.
“Social media plays a big role in consumers’ everyday lives. Consumers are able to be more personal on social platforms, providing researchers with opinions, thoughts and comments that can give valuable insight. Social media sites provide a way for consumers to directly interact with brands and companies, showing firsthand how consumers feel about their products and services.”

Blog posts, webinars, and everything in between
What does the future of Market Research look like?Can it be democratised?
(...)No suspense here: Market Research will be democratized in the (hopefully not too distant) future. Market Research will be available and affordable not just for blue chip multinationals with huge revenues but for companies of all sizes, including startups and SMEs (small and medium enterprises). The was Market Research is conducted will of course be different than what it was in the past.
Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and more:
an interview with Michalis Michael
In this short but insightful podcast, @DigitalMR_CEO is interviewed about Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, and technological evolution and innovation. Michalis talks about the inspiration behind DigitalMR's offerings and purpose, our approach to market research, social analytics and online communities, 'The Triple S' data integration, as well as AI trends and what the future of Artificial Intelligence may hold.
Social Listening: Why, How, and When does it work?
On Tuesday June 6th at 9am UK time, DigitalMR CEO Michalis Michael participated in a webinar on the topic of Social Listening, organised by our agency partner in Asia, MRDC Software. Phil Hearn, MRDC Software CEO interviewed Michalis, offering a unique opportunity to find out how Social Listening is changing the way many companies are spending their research budgets.
The Triple S Integration: Surveys + Social + Sales
Integrating data from different sources is admittedly nothing new.(...)DigitalMR has for the longest time been advocating that there is a way to accurately measure what people say on the web and use it to produce customer insights. Yes, there can be millions of posts out there, and it is tough to harvest only the posts that are relevant, and so many languages; we say so what?
Image Analytics in Social Media Listening
Text analytics is not always enough in order to get the full story around brands on social media. More and more people use images and video to share their point of view and feedback; sometimes combined with text in which case part of the post is analysed, and sometimes without any text in which case text based harvesting and analytics is actually inadequate.
Insights on Demand with Online Communities
On Wednesday August 23rd at 9am UK time, DigitalMR CEO Michalis Michael participated in a webinar on the topic of Online Communities, organised by our agency partner in Asia, MRDC Software. This webinar offers a unique opportunity to find out how to make the most of Private Online Communities to reach consumer insights on demand.
