Market Research Buzzwords and the Hype Curve

BuzzwordsIn Episode 2 of the Research Life Podcast, we have two special guests:  Jeffrey Henning, CMO of Affinnova and Andrew Jeavons, President of Survey Analytics.

Andrew, Jeffrey and I discussed a list of buzzwords in market research, and attempted to place each on the Gartner Hype Curve.

Our buzzwords came from a list published by Research Magazine of the top 10 buzzwords on Twitter from 2011 using the #mrx hashtag.

  • Mobile
  • Gamification
  • Analytics
  • Innovation
  • Communities
  • Social Media
  • MROC
  • Co-creation
  • Shopper
  • Behavioural

We added in an additional 4 buzzwords which could be trending in 2012:

  • Passive data collection
  • SoLoMo (social / local / mobile)
  • Network intelligence
  • Big Data
