In-home Testing

Why should you use this template?

The Covid pandemic has turned many of us into hermits: living and working from home, finding the courage to change out of sweatpants to leave the house. This causes more problems for people who already know the difficulty of sourcing participants for surveys and interviews.

The show must go on, and so we’ve developed ways to reach people in their homes and get feedback on their personal behaviors without the chore of face-to-face interactions. Rapid online surveys can reach hundreds of participants in a matter of minutes and teach you more about your audience’s current and new habits.


Testing Outcomes

  • Discover patterns participants only have in the comfort of their homes
  • Learn how behaviors change between different environments
  • Measure the impact of in-home usage for your product


Organization Benefits

  • Maintain a line of communication with your target audience even as sourcing participants becomes more difficult
  • Save time through unmoderated surveys and quantitative data reports that can be used to make change based on what you’ve learned
