Great metrics, need great data capturing techniques 10
One answer is mobile interviewing 11
Why consider mobile surveys? ACTUALLY THE REAL QUESTION SHOULD BE WHY NOT? 1.5 BILLION 37% GROWTH 15% OF WEB 12 smartphones and tablets will be installed globally by mid 2013 – overtaking laptops and PCs* in the number of global 3G subscribers in the past year** traffic comes via mobile – more than double last year; Mobile traffic share already over 50% in India and China*** *Source: Morgan Stanley Research; **Source: Informa WCIS; ***Source: StatCounter Global Stats, 9/12
Nearly 40% of web traffic in KSA comes from a mobile phone device and not from a desktop 13
This is not surprising since KSA ranks third in the world with over 70% smart phone penetration. 14
MOBILE SURVEYS GIVE YOU INCREDIBLE SHORT TERM ADVANTAGES Consumers are connected to their mobile phones all the time and find it comfortable and engaging as a communication medium better interview context Pilot studies have shown that without interviewers (over)prompting, mobile data is more discriminating between brands and reflect market reality better better data quality Speed of data access and deliverables increases significantly. 15
MOBILE SURVEYS WILL HELP YOU FUTURE PROOF YOUR INSIGHTS Door to door access will get increasingly difficult and expensive due to rising trend of gated communities where higher income respondents reside better representativeness of the sample Can integrate exciting possibilities offered by the smartphone platform: multimedia, geo-location (GPS), passive behaviour monitoring (once the smartphone penetration is sufficiently high). 16
Data quality is impressive on Mobile 17
KEY INSIGHTS WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE DATA 18
ACCESS TO HIGHER INCOME HOUSEHOLDS MOBILE GIVES US BETTER ACCESS TO HIGHER INCOME HOUSEHOLDS (MORE 19 VALUABLE CUSTOMERS) THAN TRADITIONAL DOOR-TO-DOOR INTERVIEWING CAN
MOBILE DATA MATCHES UP TO MARKET SHARE 20 OVER TIME, MOBILE DATA MATCHES UP TO MARKET REALITY EVEN MORE DUE TO THE ABILITY TO COVER WIDER GEOGRAPHIES NATIONALLY
MORE HONEST FEEDBACK SELF-COMPLETION MODE MEANS THAT RESPONDENTS ARE MORE DISCRIMINATING TOWARDS BRANDS, GIVING US MORE HONEST AND USEFUL FEEDBACK 21
NOT AN ISSUE CAPTURING OPEN ENDED RESPONSES 22
SCREEN SIZE DOESN’T MATTER – RESPONSES ARE CONSISTENT 23
AS OF NOV 2013, WE HAVE INTERVIEWED 10,000+ CONSUMERS IN ASIA, AFRICA AND MIDDLE EAST THROUGH THEIR MOBILE. 24
Our mobile fieldwork partner is ODR WITH UP TO 1500 NEW PANELISTS BEING ADDED EACH MONTH 25

Take a Guess– Which Brands have higher Power? Power 12 30
What is driving Toyota’s Power? People consider the brands that are most salient – the ones that come to mind quickest when the need arises. Salient Salient 156 156 Meaningful 128 Because people are predisposed to consider brands when they believe them to be meaningful. They meet their needs better than other brands and they appeal to them more than others. Power 19.3 Different 88 If a brand seeks to charge a premium, people will only do so if they believe the brand is meaningfully different in some way. Very Salient and Strongly Meaningful overall. Weak perceived difference is its main weakness as it is the most popular make in the country.
