Q&A: What Are Some Things You Use Choice Based Conjoint Analysis For?

Last winter, we held a fantastic webinar on "How to Use Conjoint Analysis and MaxDiff to Put Your Best Product Forward." Survey Analytics VP of Client Services Esther LaVielle delighted us all with a very educational high level overview of conjoint analysis, the different models of conjoint, and how to use this technique, specifically in pricing and market share scenarios. Esther put together a great presentation and use case for how choice based conjoint could be applied to doughnuts, specifically to determine which doughnuts will sell at specific times of the day. Continue reading to see the slides from our webinar and what some social and savvy market research experts had to say about how choice based conjoint can be applied outside of pricing.

We were curious to learn other ways that market research experts are applying conjoint analysis, other than determining pricing. After reaching out to some market research experts on Twitter and Linkedin, we have gathered a very unique collaboration of situations where choice based conjoint can be applied aside from it's most popular ways of being used in pricing research.

How are you applying choice based conjoint in different scenarios and industries? Do you have any tips, tricks or advice on conjoint studies? We would love your input to keep the discussion going!

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data.
