Planning for Success with Insight Communities
An insight community brings many benefits to an ongoing programme of research, such as greater customer centricity, always-on access to insights, and long-term cost savings. You may be aware of this but might feel daunted by how to go about establishing a new community or are unsure how to reinvigorate an existing one. There are many things to consider: defining purpose and fit; engaging with multiple stakeholders; careful planning; clear budgeting; and having a compelling business case. Jack Lee, Head of Communities at Harris Interactive – has written a tip-packed, two-part blog which expands on these points, to help those looking to create or grow an engaging customer insight programme with a winning community.

On this complementary webinar Jack Lee, our Head of Insight Communities, will share advice and best practice guidance on how to plan for community success, based on his years of experience working with leading brands across multiple sectors.
"We have worked with Harris Interactive over the years. We now have an insight community managed by the team using their expertise in both research and community management. The community enables us to ensure our customers are central to our decision making. The team understands our business and they leverage the community, and other approaches, to deliver quick and cost-effective research insights. They advise us on how to best engage with our community and are always on standby for any advice and urgent questions. The team members individually are great and very knowledgeable. I see them as an extension to our team." - Global tech firm
“We partnered with Harris Interactive to gather market and customer insight to feed into new product concepts. We had some tight deadlines - the speed at which the Harris team were able to turn the whole project around was phenomenal. They helped us pull together a survey, using their expertise in the topic to advise us on language and gave us access to their analytics tool as well as providing a write up. The tool is straight forward to use and very powerful – giving you the ability to cut the data how you need in a matter of seconds. The team were extremely flexible, we were testing and iterating concepts as we were going and they moderated the community really well to ensure we got the answers we need. The findings of the research gave us a clear direction for the products we were testing.” Alice from SparksGrove (working on behalf of a media client)
