Having access to the latest Internet, e-commerce, outsourcing, wireless, and information technology research is not easy to keep up to. Tasking an entity to do such service on a customized level is expensive as well.
DigitalFilipino.com StatsReport was launched last June 2002 with the intent of empowering entrepreneurs, managers, and students with up-to-date Internet, e-commerce, outsourcing, and wireless market research at the most affordable cost.
For corporate research reports, we use a combination of personal and email surveys to meet our target number of respondents. We have a database of CxOs (CIO, CEO, CFO, etc.) in the country which we tap from time to time.
For reports that focuses on the individual, surveys are done face -to-face. This allows us to validate all answers given in the survey form and make the necessary follow-up questions which we believe to be reliable, truthful, and sincere. Email and phone surveys are done as well on a case-to-case basis when there’s limitation. We have a database of Internet users which we tap for our surveys as the need arises.
All survey respondents receive a token for participating in our research. We value their privacy and do not require disclosure of personal identity.
