Gather insightful research videos, fast, to win new business

Rapidly gather compelling customer research videos for new business pitches that demonstrate insight and empathy for a client’s market, brand or product.

How the process works

    • Identify areas of inquiry for rapid exploration with our Project Management and Research teams
    • Work with our Research Managers to develop a fast turnaround study to surface relevant consumer values, perceptions, and behaviors
    • Use mindswarms remote video capture to gather perceptions to areas of inquiry
    • Capture emotions and reactions to new and/or existing consumer-facing materials
    • Conduct a broad inquiry to demonstrate the similarities and differences across markets
    • Collaborate with our analysts and video editors to bring insights to life

Timing and cost

    • Insights for new business pitches take from 1 to 5 days (or more) to complete, depending on study complexity
    • Typical projects involve 10+ participants
    • Fees including screener development, study management, recruiting, hand-selecting the best candidates, QA of videos, respondent incentives, and transcripts @$500/person for US respondents, and $1,000/person for international markets
    • Fees for optional analysis start at $7,500 for a report on a 15 person study, and $12,500 for a 30 person study
    • Fees for optional edited video start at $5,000 for a 90-120 second highlight reel with title cards and music (B roll and motion graphics are extra)


Deliverable Example: 10 participants each answer 10 questions using the video on their smartphone or laptop. That produces 100 x 1 minute video clips and corresponding transcripts (both Google Speech, and a parallel service that includes a human pass to capture important emotional, attitudinal or cultural nuances).

All delivered via a cloud-based link that is shareable, and assets that can be downloaded (videos in MP4 format) to be used to bring the insights to life for presentations, and highly engage audiences
