How Does LiveHive Work?

C+R administers a national survey online to qualified, pre-recruited consumers. Our team and the clients can observe the results coming in real time. 

  • Sample sizes for each session are customized to your needs (typically 100 per session); survey is no longer than 20 minutes.
  • Immediately after each quantitative session, we collaboratively select respondents (typically about 6) to participate in webcam focus groups (about one hour) – digging in deeper for optimization elements and explaining the whys behind the data.
  • After the focus groups, we conduct a team debrief, aligning on what we learned during the LiveHIVE session.
