Step 2

Confirm & Launch Your Project

After you submit your project, one of our Forthright agents contacts you to confirm your specs and answer any questions. We trial your survey, and, once testing is complete, officially launch your survey to our panel. We can sample your survey even if you program it yourself and additional consultation is available at every stage.

Academic use case

Academic Researchers Seek Two-Wave Study About Political Views

Forthright Access was contracted to deliver a sample size of n=5000 nationally representative respondents in the first wave of a two-wave study on political views. Each participant was required to receive the follow-up survey exactly seven days after they completed the first survey. Forthright Access made it easy to track and deliver the follow-up invitations on time. Ultimately, the goal to successfully re-survey nearly all of the original respondents was easily met and exceeded given the strong recontact rates of Forthright panelists.

Throughout the year, this particular corporate client plans media buys surrounding various events. Follow-up research needs to be deployed after certain calendar events or media pushes to measure awareness, impact and attitude among potential customers.

Short Deadline, Large Sample Size for Sports Fan Research

Forthright Access partnered with a market research firm to provide data collection for a new client doing sports fan research. Due to delays on the client side, the data collection timeline was condensed to only four days while the project still called for a large sample size. Forthright Access’ powerful tools made it easy to set daily goals, keep demographic balancing on target, and gather data quickly to meet this aggressive goal and keep the project on schedule.
