Unveiling the Intersection of Insurance and the Dental Industry and the Crucial Role of Market Research 

  • May 9, 2024

  • Eyes4Research

The landscape of healthcare is constantly evolving, with insurance playing a pivotal role in ensuring accessibility and affordability. Within this space, the dental industry is a major component– addressing not only oral health but also overall well-being. But understanding the dynamics between insurance and the dental sector requires keen insights, and here is where market research steps in as a guiding light. 

Understanding Market Dynamics

Market research unveils the layered relationship between insurance providers and the dental industry. Researchers can decipher the evolving needs of individuals seeking dental coverage by delving into consumer behavior, preferences, and trends. Insights into demographics, socioeconomic factors, and geographic location enable insurers and dental practitioners to tailor their offerings effectively. 

Navigating Regulatory Frameworks

The insurance and dental sectors operate within a complex web of regulators and compliance standards. Market research serves as a compass, one that guides stakeholders through the intricacies of legislative frameworks. By staying on top of regulatory changes and consumer sentiments, companies can adapt their strategies to foster trust and compliance. 

Driving Innovation and Adaptation

Innovation lies at the heart of both insurance and dental care. Market research fuels innovation by providing valuable feedback on emerging technologies, treatment preferences, and service delivery models. When insurers are armed with insights from consumers, they can develop tailored dental insurance products that resonate with evolving consumer needs, while dental providers can refine their services to enhance patient satisfaction and outcomes. 

The Role of Custom Online Panels

The Rise of Mocktails and Its Impact on Alcohol Consumption Trends

  • April 25, 2024

  • Eyes4Research

Alcohol consumption remains a big business. Beer, cider, wine, and spirit products grew over seven percent in volume across relevant global markets in 2022. According to Statista, the revenue in the alcoholic drinks market is estimated to reach $196.6 billion this year.

However, when it comes to market research, knowing what non-alcoholic drinks are bought can be as important as alcohol drinking data – especially when it comes to consumption trends at adult venues like bars and live events. An example is Red Bull, which disrupted the alcohol and spirit industry when it arrived in the West in the late 1990s (then was accepted and even assimilated into nightlife culture).

Are you ready for mocktails, another possible disruptor that might be permanent? Market researchers should be interested, for understanding this new trend might help understand overall drinking trends in a rapidly changing world with unyielding habits from specific key demographics.

What is a Mocktail?

A mocktail is not simply ordering an orange juice or soda at a bar or rock concert. The name says it all: A non-alcoholic that “mocks” alcoholic drinks by keeping the taste, bite, and even sensory experience of an alcoholic beverage without the effects. This beverage class mimics the appearance and taste of an alcoholic cocktail. They are typically crafted by mixing fruit juices, syrups, herbs, and other non-alcoholic ingredients. 

Here are some examples of mocktails:

  • Frozen Apple Margarita: Same as a traditional margarita, but swap the tequila for an extra cup of sparkling apple juice.
  • Tamarind Pineapple Quencher: A fizzy drink with pineapple, mango, ginger beer, and lime juice, echoing a taste of the tropics.
  • Tropical Punch Mocktail: A non-alcoholic summer party punch with juices decorated with fresh mint and pomegranate seeds.

In essence, mocktail drinkers get a healthy beverage paired with the exotic and even transcendent feel of an alcoholic beverage. They remain hydrated and energized while navigating the dance floor or madly visiting booths at an outdoor festival.

Clubs and other venues are already paying attention to the mocktail demand, with even non-alcoholic breweries seeing an explosion in revenue. Alcohol sales are healthy, but non-alcoholic sales are no slouch. This year, the revenue generated in the non-alcoholic drinks market is projected to reach $1.45 trillion in the US alone. Non-alcoholic adult beverage sales rose 33 percent this year, accounting for a mammoth $331 million. Online, the number was even higher, where non-alcoholic/low-alcohol sales spiked 315 percent! 

Sober business is booming. “Thirty percent of people who are of drinking age do not drink alcohol,” said Tracy Stuckrath, president/chief connecting officer of Thrive! Meetings and Events

But what is driving this trend? Or should we ask “who” is driving this trend?

Alcohol Drinking Habits with Younger Generations.

Health trends come and go, but the reality is that two generations are steering the popularity of mocktails and non-alcoholic drinks: Millennials and Zoomers. A 2018 Berenberg Research report found that Millennials consume less alcohol than Gen Xers and Baby Boomers.

This trend is even more acute with Zoomer (or Gen Z): 66 percent of Gen Z consumers are actively trying to drink less alcohol. Stuckrath agrees that the departure from drinking is fueled by the health fixation of Millennials and Gen Z. Still, others have suggested that the two generations also worry that embarrassing alcohol-related behavior can be exposed on the internet and social media.

Beyond entertainment venues, beer and spirit companies should pay heed and perhaps even make a TikTok about it. Zoomers comprise 40 percent of American consumers and wield an astonishing clout for buying ($143 billion). And they are increasingly backing movements like “Dry January” or “Sober Curious,” whether it’s to live healthier or not appear disheveled and babbling on a viral Snapchat post.

The hospitality industry is paying attention to Millennial and Zoomer drinking habits, ramping up their mocktail offerings. A perfect example is Marriott Properties, which has, across the board, increased its non-alcoholic offerings at several of its bars and restaurants – like offering its Blueberry Bliss, a combination of muddled blueberries, tropical juices, and coconut milk.

You Know the “P” Word Had to be Mentioned

Will this mocktail/nondrinking trend continue? Will alcoholic retailers pivot to satisfy demand as in the past, like producing their own energy drinks to compete with Red Bull or manufacturing bottled water to stay hip with the exotic water craze that continues even today?

That’s hard to tell because we’re still somewhat in the pandemic fog. Why is this important? During the lockdowns, excessive drinking rose by 21 percent. Regular drinking also increased (23 percent more) while people stayed home, and alcohol stores remained “essential businesses.” However, alcohol gradually became connected to adverse mental health. Plus, the rise in alcohol-related liver disease and other disorders was quickly blamed on drinking decisions during the latter parts of the pandemic.

Thus, it’s possible that the current mocktail/nondrinking movement could be a reaction to the pandemic. Society is “drying up” as festivals and concerts become places where viruses are an afterthought. The verdict is still out on alcohol and the pandemic, but the younger generations are going for the pause button to some extent.

In addition, drinking trends are not always linear, and disruptions can occur beyond worldwide emergencies. For example, before the pandemic, morning clubbing or morning raves were rising in popularity. These were events centering on attending a nightclub early in the morning, dancing as an exercise, drinking juice/water, and then going to work in an elevated mood.

This form of entertainment/exercise/therapy went the way of the dodo in 2020 as public venues shut down – and it has yet to make a significant comeback. The point is that there was a popular “nondrinking” alternative to social events. Nobody knows if younger generations would have fully adopted morning clubbing and extended it to the nighttime. Now mocktails are becoming a beneficial alternative to traditional alcohol drinking as more embrace healthy living after years of unhealthy seclusion.

Lastly, market researchers should keep an eye on the gradual legalization of cannabis, though definite trends are hard to grasp presently. A 2021 study of Colorado households revealed a 13 percent average monthly decrease in purchases of all alcoholic products combined, paired with a six percent decrease in wine consumption. But it’s still too early to find a clear relationship between cannabis legalization and alcohol sales across all 50 states. 

What we do know is that younger adults are seeking healthy and extraneous alternatives to alcohol while hitting the nightlife or ordering online. That’s something that should be studied closely and not mocked.


Why is Consumer Data Quality at an All-Time Low? 

  • April 8, 2024

  • Eyes4Research

In the digital age, data is hailed as the new currency. B2C and B2B brands rely on consumer data to drive marketing strategies, personalize experiences, and make informed business decisions. However, concern is growing over the quality of this data, as industry experts have acknowledged a decline. 

Imagine this: a frazzled and weary consumer, navigating the digital landscape daily, bombarded with surveys, pop-ups, and requests for feedback. In the pursuit of understanding consumer behavior, seeking data has become a battle, where ironically, the casualties are often the very insights brands are looking for. 

Let’s dig deeper into the reasons behind this data quality decline: 

  • The Multitasking Menace: We live in a world where attention is the most coveted currency. The modern consumer is a master juggler– balancing tasks, neverending notifications, and responsibilities. Amid this chaos, the concept of undivided attention seems like a relic of the past. 

As consumers engage with surveys and questionnaires, they do so in a sea of distractions, their focus diluted by constant distractions. Participant distraction and multitasking emerge as detractions, diminishing the quality of the data collected.  

  • No One Likes a Long Survey: Long surveys test the patience and endurance of even the most dedicated participants. As attention spans dwindle and patience wears even thinner, the quality of responses dwindles. Length questionnaires work against you, and the desire to complete them can overshadow the need for accuracy. 
  • Design Matters: Survey design, often considered the cornerstone of effective data collection, can also be its Achilles’ heel. Poorly constructed surveys can confuse respondents. Complex language, ambiguous questions, and convoluted structures can lead to misinformation, yielding data tainted by misunderstanding and confusion. 
  • The Power of Incentives: In the consumer data space, incentives are crucial. But in the quest for insights, the allure of rewards often takes precedence over the authenticity of responses. Inadequate incentives fail to capture the essence of consumer sentiment, leading to data muddled with disinterest. 

In light of these challenges, brands should consider vendors that provide well-managed custom online panels as an option for consumer research. Online panels, such as the ones created and managed by Eyes4Research, are comprised of carefully recruited and engaged participants. 

The Benefits of Online Panels for B2C and B2B Brands

Targeted Recruitment: B2C and B2B brands can recruit panelists based on specific demographics, interests, and behaviors, ensuring the data collected is relevant and representative of their target audience. 

Ongoing Engagement: By maintaining a community of engaged panelists, brands can gather insights over time, track changes in consumer preferences and behaviors, and build trust and rapport with participants. 

Data Validation: The custom online panels created by Eyes4Research enable brands to validate data through surveys, feedback mechanisms, and other studies. This validation process helps identify and rectify inaccuracies, ensuring the integrity and reliability of the data. 

Compliance Assurance: By implementing strong consent management and compliance measures, custom online panels ensure that data collection practices adhere to regulatory requirements, limiting the risk of non-compliance and potential fines. 

Agile Insights: With access to an engaged panel of respondents, brands can quickly collect feedback and activate marketing campaigns and product offerings in real-time, enhancing agility and responsiveness. 

The decline in consumer data quality poses challenges for brands seeking to leverage data-driven insights to drive growth and innovation, However, by embracing custom online panes as a strategic approach to data collection and engagement, brands can overcome these challenges and uncover the full potential of consumer data to fuel their success in the current business landscape. 

Online panels are powerful tools that provide a more affordable way for brands to collect valuable data to optimize their marketing strategies.

The Power of Custom Online Panels

Custom online panels are valuable for recruiting and engaging B2B audiences in market research. Online panels, such as the ones created and managed by Eyes4Research, offer several important advantages.

The Power of Partnerships in Research 

  • March 26, 2024

Here is why research partnerships are not only beneficial but crucial for driving meaningful insights and propelling B2C and B2B businesses forward. 

Pooling Expertise for Enhanced Insights

Research partnerships bring together diverse perspectives, expertise, and resources. Collaborating with other organizations, institutions, or experts allows for a broader scope of analysis and interpretation. 

By pooling these resources, teams can access specialized knowledge, methodologies, and tools that might not be readily available in-house.

Navigating Challenges in Physician Market Research

  • March 26, 2024

  • Eyes4Research

The healthcare space is always changing, and understanding the perspectives and behaviors of physicians is crucial for pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, and healthcare providers alike. Market research with physicians offers invaluable insights that drive product development, marketing strategies, and patient care improvements. 

However, conducting research with physicians presents unique challenges that require innovative solutions. Here, we’ll explore some of these challenges and discuss how custom online panels can be instrumental in overcoming them effectively. 

Limited Time Availability

Physicians are notoriously busy professionals, often juggling patient appointments, administrative tasks, and continuing education requirements. Traditional research methods such as in-person interviews or focus groups, can be challenging to schedule and may disrupt physicians’ already packed schedules. 

Custom online panels, such as the ones created and managed by Eyes4Research, offer a convenient solution by allowing physicians to participate in research activities at their own pace and on their own time, minimizing disruptions to their busy schedules. 

Access to Diverse Physician Specialties 

Physicians represent a diverse range of specialties, each with its unique perspectives and insights. Recruiting a representative sample of physicians across various specialties can be difficult using traditional recruitment methods. 

Custom online panels enable researchers to access a broader and more diverse pool of physicians, ensuring that insights are reflective of the entire medical landscape. At Eyes4Research, our Physician panel represents a wide range of specialties, including Family Medicine, Immunology, Cardiology, Primary Care, and many more. 

Geographic Reach 

Physicians are located across a variety of geographic regions, ranging from urban centers to rural communities. Conducting research with physicians scattered across different locations can be logistically challenging and costly. 

Depending on where the research is being conducted, there can be differences in data collection, due to factors such as the geopolitical climate, environmental realities, and cultural variations that need to be considered.

For instance, conducting research in the U.S. and Canada requires researchers to connect with local and regional authorities to secure any necessary permits. A short list of some of the possible types of organizations researchers might need to contact includes hamlet or community council offices, indigenous representatives, and any local research institutes. 

Both the U.S. and Canada have regions that are home to indigenous peoples and gaining insights from physicians in those regions would be crucial to any research project. 

Custom online panels break down geographic barriers, allowing researchers to engage with physicians from across the country or even internationally, without the need for extensive travel or the type of logistical coordination outlined above. 

Our Physician panel has a custom sample of over 300,000 healthcare professionals from around the globe who are authentic, well-screened, and ready to participate in our clients’ research projects. 

Compliance and Privacy Concerns

Physicians are bound by strict regulations regarding patient privacy and data security. Traditional research methods may raise concerns about confidentiality and compliance with regulatory requirements. 

Custom online panels provide a secure and compliant platform for data collection ensuring that any sensitive information is handled with the utmost care and confidentiality. 

Custom online panels offer a versatile and efficient solution for overcoming the challenges associated with conducting market research with physicians. By leveraging an online panel managed by Eyes4Research tailored to the unique needs of healthcare researchers, companies can accomplish the following: 

  • Access a diverse and representative sample of physicians across various specialties and geographic regions.
  • Facilitate convenient participation, allowing physicians to engage in research activities at their own pace and on their own time. 
  • Ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and maintain the highest standards of data security and confidentiality. 
  • Drive actionable insights that inform product development, marketing strategies, and patient care improvements.

The Power of Targeting the Right Audience in Advertising 

  • March 26, 2024

  • Eyes4Research

The world of advertising is constantly evolving, but one thing remains constant: the importance of understanding and targeting the right audience. Our world is hyperconnected, and consumers are bombarded with countless daily messages, many of which don’t even reach their target audiences because consumers often skip right past advertising. 

Our recent study on consumer perceptions of advertising found that 45% of respondents stated they regularly skip past online advertising whenever they can. Reaching the right audience with the right B2C and B2B messaging has never been more crucial. 

For ad agencies striving to deliver impactful campaigns, the key to success is hitting the mark with messaging the first time. And that starts with research

The Significance of Audience Understanding

Effective advertising begins with a deep understanding of the target audience. Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all approaches. Today, consumers expect personalized experiences tailored to their interests, preferences, and behaviors. In our study, 31% of respondents stated that online ads targeted to their interests are more effective than other forms of advertising. 

By gaining insights into the demographics, psychographics, and behaviors of their target audience, ad agencies can create messaging that resonates on a deeper level, driving engagement and encouraging brand loyalty. 

Targeting Precision is the Path to Success

Targeting the right audience not only enhances the effectiveness of advertising campaigns but also maximizes ROI. By directing resources toward those consumers most likely to convert, ad agencies can optimize their advertising spend and achieve better results. 

However, reaching the ideal audience requires more than just guesswork– it demands data-driven strategies backed by robust research and analysis involving the precise audience 

Why Custom Online Panels Are the Game-Changing Solution

Enter custom online panels– an invaluable tool for gaining actionable insights into target audiences. By leveraging custom online panels, such as the ones we create and manage for our clients, ad agencies can access a diverse pool of participants who match their desired demographics, ensuring accurate representation and reliable data

These panels provide a platform for conducting in-depth research, collecting feedback, and testing B2C and B2B messaging in real time. This empowers ad agencies to make informed decisions and refine their campaigns for maximum impact.

  • Real-Time Feedback: With custom online panels, agencies can collect feedback quickly and efficiently, allowing for agile adjustments to messaging and strategy based on audience response.

  • Enhanced Campaign Effectiveness: Armed with a thorough understanding of their audience, ad agencies can craft messaging that resonates, driving higher engagement, conversions, and brand loyalty.

Is the Cannabis Industry Dying, or Has It Plateaued? 

  • February 27, 2024

  • Eyes4Research

The cannabis industry has experienced a whirlwind of changes in recent years. From legalization movements sweeping across various parts of the U.S. to the emergence of new products and consumption methods, the landscape of the cannabis market has been dynamic. However, amid all the hype and excitement, there’s a lingering question: Is the cannabis industry experiencing a decline, or has it simply reached a plateau? 

Understanding the Current Cannabis Landscape

The initial boom of the cannabis industry was fueled by optimism and high expectations. As legalization efforts gained traction in different parts of the world, investors poured funds into cannabis-related ventures, and consumers eagerly explored a plethora of products ranging from recreational to medicinal. This surge in interest led to exponential growth and a seemingly boundless potential for the industry. 

Are There Signs of Saturation in the Cannabis Industry? 

However, as the industry matured, certain challenges became apparent. Regulatory hurdles, oversupply issues, and fierce competition have presented significant obstacles for businesses operating in the cannabis space. 

Market saturation, especially in regions where legalization occurred early on, has led to price wars and squeezed profit margins for many companies. Moreover, shifting consumer preferences and the emergence of alternative products have added further complexity to the market dynamics. 

Plateau or Decline? 

The question of whether the cannabis industry is on a downward trajectory or has simply reached a plateau is a nuanced one. While some market segments may be experiencing a slowdown, others continue to show promise and resilience. 

For instance, the medicinal cannabis sector continues to expand as more research validates its therapeutic potential and as regulatory frameworks become more accommodating. 

What is the Role of Market Research in Understanding the Cannabis Industry? 

In navigating these uncertain waters, reliable data and insights are more crucial than ever.  This is where custom online panels, such as the ones created and managed by Eyes4Research, can make a difference. 

By leveraging the power of digital platforms, custom online panels allow businesses to collect real-time feedback from targeted demographics and key stakeholders within the cannabis industry. 

Whether it’s understanding consumer preferences, tracking market trends, or evaluating the efficacy of marketing strategies, custom online panels offer a cost-effective and efficient solution for staying ahead of the curve. 

Why Choose Online Panels? 

Custom online panels enable businesses to tailor their research initiatives to accommodate specific objectives and demographics, ensuring that the insights gained are actionable and relevant. 

With customizable survey designs and access to diverse participant pools, businesses can gain deeper insights into consumer behaviors, preferences, and attitudes toward cannabis products. In addition, the scalability of online panels allows for seamless expansion into new markets and the ability to track evolving trends over time. 

The future of the cannabis industry remains uncertain, but one thing is clear: staying informed and adaptive is the key to success in this rapidly evolving market. By leveraging online panels, businesses can gain the insights needed to navigate challenges, identify opportunities, and stay ahead of the competition.
