For the past 8 years, the Harris Buzz Report has been conducted monthly to establish the levels of buzz surrounding the latest news and product releases within technology, media and entertainment – based on a nationally representative sample of GB residents aged 16-64. Using three key Buzz metrics, each report examines; the level of awareness and familiarity with each product release or news story, the degree of discussion amongst peers and the scale of excitement it generates.
The all new Buzz offers more
We’ve overhauled the design and functionality of the output which now includes data on every single news item we’ve covered over the past 8 years, with additional information such as the brand covered, sector and date measured – all of which can be searched and sorted in the Excel format.
It can help in the following ways:
• Benchmarking the cut through of new releases among the GB public
• Benchmarking the excitement and discussion buzz created
• Benchmarking within sector/product and across sectors
