Voxmeter’s interviewing methods and panel management is unique and the foundation for our research. To secure the quality of the panel, we focus on the following measures:
- Everyone is selected randomly and recruited over the telephone.
- All types of people are represented in the panel.
- We want our respondents to feel appreciated for their time helping us. As thanks, we support a number of charities.
- Thanks to the high level of loyalty, background information accumulates to outline a complete overview.
The panel members are secured 100% anonymity.
Everyone is randomly selected and recruited by phone
Voxmeter only conducts internet interviews, where the respondents have been randomly selected and recruited over the phone by a professional interviewer. This ensures higher participation and a better mix of person types. We never use respondents, who have signed up through ads, pop-ups for testing of webpages or etc. Voxmeter controls 100 % who the members are and that no one participate more than once. Therefore, the panel is representative of the entire part of the population, who has access to the internet. Read more about our recruiting principles, here.
All person types are represented in the panel
To meet different types of people, we work with an incentive structure. As appreciation for their participation, they earn points, which they can use for donations to charities, gift cards, raffle tickets, or savings. This creates a high level of loyalty among the panelists.
We support charities as appreciation for our panel member
It’s important for us that everyone who participate in our surveys feel appreciated for their time spent. In 2014, Voxmeter and our panelist donated 1,1mio Dkk. to NGO’s. All members earn 1 dkk. per minute they spent filling out a survey. They can spend the money on:
- Donations (1.1 mio dkr., 2014)
- Gift card (2,125 gift cards, 2014)
- Raffel tickets (192 prices, 2014)
