When we need quantitative studies to get the big numbers behind our results, we usually turn to online methods like surveys and data mining. But using online methods for a qualitative study? What would that even look like?

In this presentation, Jill Meneilley will talk about her experience conducting online qualitative research and why it’s often a better option compared to in-person focus groups or in-depth interviews. She’ll share stories from studies she has conducted across a range of clients and business challenges and will give examples of how to get the most out of your own online qualitative research studies.
