Three steps to your own customer panel
We guide you through the complex process of panel building in three simple steps. On the basis of a reliable and reliable time planning and with the help of our extensive experience you will receive a finished and promising customer panel in a short time.
- Clarification phase: We review the strategic objectives of your panel with you and advise you on all forms of design relevant to success, such as weighing up your own brand name for your panel or fulfilling the necessary requirements for setting it up.
- Planning phase: In this phase we work with you to determine the optimal panel structure and size to achieve your goals. Likewise, the advice of our experts regarding a promising recruitment strategy and a suitable incentive system are decisive steps, which we support optimally with our know-how. We not only clarify data protection issues with you, but also advise you on how to make the best possible use of your panel.
- Implementation phase: In a last step we design the participant area and the panel app according to your ideas. In addition, we will connect you to an incentive system and, after an extensive test phase, we will finally recruit your panelists successfully.
Rogator can advise you individually on the following questions regarding the panel set-up
Why set up your own customer panel?
In contrast to the use of a third-party online access panel on the market, you can precisely define the required target group for your questions. You receive faster and more direct feedback from your own customers. Regular surveys increase customer loyalty, as your panelists are directly involved in product and service developments.
How much time does it take to set up your own customer panel?
Most of the steps in panel construction are implemented individually for our customers. Therefore, the timing for the creation of a panel depends entirely on our clients' implementation wishes and the goals associated with the panel. Experience shows that a successful panel set-up requires 2 to 3 months of project time including all coordination, technical implementation and participant recruitment.
What is your ideal panel size?
The larger panel is not always the better panel. Here at Rogator we look after customer panels with a few hundred to many thousands of panelists. The ideal size of your panel depends on your strategic considerations, such as the number of planned surveys per year, the desired sample sizes and the maximum number of invitations per person. We will find the ideal starting point for you.
How do you get panel members?
In the selection and implementation of successful recruitment channels, we offer professional advice and support through our experience and expertise – even with difficult target groups. You can also benefit from our interfaces to customer-specific bonus systems for incentives and integrate them profitably into the recruitment process.
What are the response rates?
Depending on the research project, different response rates can be expected. At Rogator, we know from experience what response rates are achievable, how to maintain them in the long term and how to increase them sustainably. In a personal preliminary discussion, we will inform you about possible response rates and how you can preserve them in the long term.
What do you have to consider when communicating with your panel members?
We advise you in detail regarding effective and efficient communication with your panel members. Through communication, you achieve a certain bond with the participants and thus counteract panel mortality.
