What are they in the first place? We answer those questions and delve into the details with guest co-host, Insightrix Communities Account Manager Megan McDowell. Megan gives us the insider’s scoop on many of the best research applications for online communities. She also describes how they are used, what features online communities commonly possess and much more. The episode is also joined by Affinity Credit Union Member Insights Manager, Adam Thome, and Dylan Cody from the same organization. They share their experience and understanding of online communities in relation to a recent Affinity Credit Union brand video testing project that employed one. Their perspective on the benefits of online communities and how they were used is especially insightful. If you have questions about market research online communities, or want to know how you could employ one, this podcast episode will give you a great grounding in this powerful and exciting research technology. Bonus video content! Episode 6 of the Insightrix Podcast is accompanied by a bonus special bonus video. Megan McDowell provides an inside view of what an online community looks like.

Insightrix recently ran an OnTopic survey to determine the state of philanthropy in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan residents are a pretty charitable bunch, with 95% of Saskatchewan residents reporting they have donated money to a charitable organization at one point or another. Those charitable contributions add up – and the organizations Sask. residents are donating to and the amounts they are donating haven’t changed much over the last year. Where are they donating? When comes to the percentage of their charitable donations, residents still donate as much as they did last year to organizations in the field of healthcare – 40% this year and 40% in 2017. For those who report that they have donated to a charity, a similar story can be seen in donations to hospitals (36% in 2017 and 34% in 2018), pet shelters (32% in 2017 and 34% in 2018) and to food banks (41% in 2017 and 39% in 2018). The only real fluctuation occurs in donations to religious organizations, whose donations have increased from 34% of the monies donated by residents who donated to charities in 2017 to 41% in 2018. Where are they volunteering? In 2018, Saskatchewan volunteers participated in a wide range of activities, such as fundraising, event organizing, participating as a board member and many more activities. In fact, in the past 12 months, 55% of Saskatchewan residents participated in volunteer activities at some time or another. For some activities, volunteerism in Saskatchewan has increased to some degree. While 64% of Saskatchewan residents who volunteered engaged in fundraising activities in 2017, that number grew to 77% in 2018. A similar situation emerges when looking at organizing and coordinating (66% in 2017, 75% in the last 12 months) and maintenance volunteering (37% in 2017 and 51% in the last 12 months). Acting as a board or committee member, on the other hand, is something just as many Saskatchewan volunteers got up to in 2017 as they did in the past 12 months – 59% of Saskatchewan volunteers. Why did they do it? According to those who were involved in volunteering in Saskatchewan, for the most part, being a volunteer was something they benefited from. Beyond a feeling of having done something worthwhile, some volunteers stated they benefited physically through their activity – 55% of those who volunteered in the past 12 months said they feel healthier, and 77% stated it improved their mood. It wasn’t just physical benefits for volunteering, though. Of those who volunteered in the past 12 months, 40% stated they benefited through increased time management skills, and a whopping 74% said they now enjoy improved people and teamwork skills.

Episode 1 of Stories of Market Research is all about visual reporting in market research In our inaugural episode of the podcast, we speak with Ellen Eastwood, an independent research and insights consultant, instructor with the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association (MRIA) and research storyteller. During the podcast, we chat about the shift that has occurred over the past few years in the way that market research agencies have chosen to report their data to clients and to the public. Rather than the data-dumping style of reporting common in the last few decades, more and more market researchers and their agencies have chosen to adopt a more client-friendly approach to their reports. They have done this through developing reports that are more narrative in nature, telling the story of the data in ways that are actionable and understandable upon first reading rather than providing reports that leave clients with little more than charts and figures with little perspective on their importance.

Seven in ten social media users in Saskatchewan have witnessed racial/ethnic bigotry on social media. In a new independent poll conducted by Insightrix Research Inc., Saskatchewan residents were asked how social media has impacted their lives. Sixty percent (60%) of Saskatchewan social media users indicated it had both a positive and negative impact on their lives. Another 14% felt it didn’t change their lives, 11% indicated it had positively impacted their lives, 6% indicated it had negatively impacted their lives, 4% said they never use social media, 2% were unsure and 3% have quit using social media altogether. Despite indicating social media has had some positive impact on their lives, more than one third (34%) feel the behaviour of others on social media has negatively impacted their lives. In fact, 59% of Saskatchewan social media users feel social media has led them to have a more negative view of society. Another 22% indicate it has had no impact on how they view society while only 7% thought it has led to a more positive view of society. Another 12% indicate they are not sure.  In what way has social media changed the way you view society as a whole? (% of SK Social Media Users) Men (65%), compared to women (53%), are more likely to indicate social media has led them to have a more negative view of society, as are those aged 18 to 34  (64%) and 35 to 54 (63%). Older Saskatchewan social media users aged 55 or older were more likely to indicate social media has no impact on how they view society (30%). Witnessing Online Harassment These negative perceptions are likely influenced by having witnessed someone being harassed on social media. Overall, more than half (55%) of Saskatchewan social media users indicate they have seen someone, other than themselves, harassed on social media. This number is higher among those aged 18 to 34 years old (76%) and 35 to 54 years old (59%). When asked what types of harassment they have witnessed others experience on social media, more than two thirds (70%) report witnessing racial harassment, 59% report harassment based on political affiliation, 59% report sexist/gender-based harassment, 57% report body shaming, 56% report religious intolerance, 55% report threats or intimidation and more than one half (51%) report witnessing homophobic/sexuality-based harassment on social media.* What forms of harassment have you witnessed  while you have been on social media? (% of SK Social Media Users) Those Saskatchewan social media users aged 18-34 years old are more likely to report having witnessed revenge porn (15%), harassment of disabled persons (40%), impersonation/catfishing (36%) and sexist/gender-based harassment (68%). Those with children in the household are more likely to indicate they have witnessed threats and intimidation (61%) on social media. Victims of Harassment Two in ten (21%) Saskatchewan social media users report having once been a victim of harassment on social media. Those aged 18 to 34 years old (36%) and those of indigenous ancestry (32%) are more likely to indicate they have been a victim of harassment on social media.  When asked what types of harassment they have experienced, 47% of Saskatchewan social media users indicate threats and intimidation, 34% indicate body shaming, 28% indicate sexist/gender-based harassment and 24% indicate harassment based on political affiliation.* *Respondents were given the option to make multiple selections; therefore, percentages total more than 100%. Potential for Discontinuation The negative impact of social media appears to be taking a toll on Saskatchewan social media users, with one third (34%) indicating harassment on social media has made them at one time want to discontinue the use of one or more forms of social media altogether. Another 9% of Saskatchewan users indicate they have already discontinued at least one form, and 57% indicate they do not plan discontinue. Research Details A total of 804 randomly selected SaskWatch Research® panel members participated in the online research study between February 5 to February 8, 2018. Quotas were set by age, gender and region to match the general population of the province; therefore, the data did not need to be weighted.  Since the research is conducted online, it is considered to be a non-probability proportion sample; therefore, margins of error are not applicable. However, the margin of error can be estimated to be ±3.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20 for questions answered by all respondents (n=804). Detailed information on this release is available upon request.  About SaskWatch Research® Insightrix began developing its SaskWatch Research online market research panel in October 2007, using high quality techniques including telephone recruitment and referrals from existing panel members. Presently, there are over 18,000 active panel members representing all regions of the province and distributions of the general population.

Winter in Winnipeg is no joke. You don’t earn the nickname, Winterpeg, for nothing after all. Around this time of year, it’s not uncommon to hear friends and family complain about the winter taking a toll both physically and mentally. To combat these winter blahs, many cities and their residents work hard to create a positive winter culture. Insightrix wanted to know how the City of Winnipeg and its residents created a winter culture all their own - like how do they spend their time outdoors during the winter, how cold is just too darned cold and what else could be done to promote a positive winter culture in Winnipeg. We surveyed 360 residents of Winnipeg between February 12 and 15 using ManitobaWatch®  - the Insightrix online research panel in Manitoba. ManitobaWatch sample quotas are set by age, gender and region to match the general population of the province, and since the research is conducted online, it is considered to be a non-probability proportion sample. Therefore, margins of error are not applicable. This is what we learned...

***UPDATE*** The final three members of the Insightrix 10 have found forever homes! As of February 1, the final member of the group, Darlene, was adopted - meaning that all of the kitties Insightrix sponsored over the holidays have found homes. We at Insightrix would like to thank not only those who took these cats home, but also all of those who liked, shared and retweeted our messages to help get them adopted.  Operation Cat Adoption has been a success – but three feline friends still need a forever home. Over the holidays, because our animal friends are often forgotten around this time of year, Insightrix sponsored 10 cats from the Saskatoon SPCA – paying their adoption fees for whomever could give them a home for the holidays. We’d like to give a short update on how those cats are doing. We’re very happy to say that seven of the cats we’ve come to affectionately call “The Insightrix 10” have already been saved from the big house, and are now happy in their new adopted homes. Thank you to all of the people who gave these cats a home. One of the cats, Darlene, has fallen under the weather over the holidays and is recuperating at the Saskatoon SPCA Animal Care Centre. She should make a complete recovery, though, and will be available to adopt soon. Stay tuned to Saskatoon SPCA and Insightrix social media for updates on her condition. The two remaining members of The Insightrix Ten are still at large and are still looking for a forever home. Both Chestnut and Rachel are currently waiting at the Stonegate Petland in Saskatoon, SK for a new friend to help them by bringing them home. Through Insightrix sponsorship, the adoption fees for these cats have been prepaid and they are ready to take home. If you could welcome one or both of these fine feline fellows into your home, or know someone who could provide a safe and stable forever home, please head to the Stonegate Petland in Saskatoon and take them home. You know they would appreciate it, and you’ll gain a friend for life. Insightrix would like to again thank the Saskatoon SPCA for making this possible, and for their continued work here in Saskatoon, as well as all SPCA locations, for the great work they are doing. If you’d like to contact the Stonegate Petland for more information or to arrange adoption, please call them at (306)934-3920....

Most Manitoba residents (88%) intend to buy gifts during the 2017 holiday shopping season.   FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 21, 2017   In a recent independent poll by Insightrix Research Inc., 88% of Manitoba residents reported they intend to purchase gifts this holiday season. During this holiday season, 90% of women polled state they intend to purchase gifts, as do 87% of men. Ninety-seven percent (97%) of Manitobans with one or more children stated they intend to purchase gifts this holiday season, as do 82% of those polled with no children.   When will Manitobans be doing most of their holiday shopping?   When it comes to when Manitobans intend to do most of their holiday shopping, almost half (47%) of those polled stated they had already completed their shopping. Almost 2 in 10 (19%) state they plan on doing their shopping between December 16-20, while 13% plan on getting it done by the middle of the month (December 1-15). More than one in ten (11%) of those polled plan on putting it off until the last minute, doing their shopping in the last week before Christmas, and 7% state they plan on doing their holiday shopping after Christmas, during Boxing Week. Another 4% said they were unsure when they’d do their holiday shopping. How much will Manitobans spend over the holidays? When asked how much they plan on spending over the holiday season compared to last year, almost half (49%) of those polled report they plan on spending about the same amount as last year. One quarter (25%) state they plan on spending less than last year, and more than one quarter (27%) state they plan on spending more. How will they pay for it all?   How Manitobans plan on paying for their holiday purchases was another question we asked. A larger proportion of those polled (50%) reported they plan on making their holiday purchases with a major credit card, and almost four in ten (37%) state they will be relying on cash put aside specifically to pay for holiday shopping. Two in ten (20%) of those we polled state they plan on using discretionary income to shop over the holidays, while 16% report they will dip into their savings. Nearly 1 in 10 (8%) state they plan on delaying payment of bills, and another 8% plan on using gift cards. Seven percent (7%) of polled residents state they intend to use a store credit card, and 4% will be relying on other means to make their holiday purchases. *Note that respondents could have provided more than one response which is why the following numbers add to more than 100%.

In November, Insightrix and SaskWatch partnered on a campaign for SaskWatch members – giving residents of Saskatchewan the chance to win free groceries up to $1,000 to use at the grocery store of their choice while at the same time having a donation of $1,000 made to their local food bank. Through the month of November, SaskWatch members liked, shared and promoted the campaign and we are happy to announce the winners! Congratulations to Keith, our Grand Prize finalist! The promotion’s lucky winner was chosen on December 1st and Keith B. from Saskatoon won NOT ONLY $1,000 worth of groceries for himself, but also won the chance to donate another $1,000 to his local food bank! On December 8, Insightrix was thrilled to have the opportunity to drop off Keith’s $1,000 donation to the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre.   The Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre Executive Director, Laurie O’Connor, was delighted to receive the donation and made sure to pass on her thanks, not just to Keith, the Grand Prize winner, but to everyone who participated. Give back to charities with SaskWatch points! Even though the Free Groceries promotion has finished, SaskWatch members are still giving back to charities all over Saskatchewan! For every survey completed as a member of the SaskWatch community, members can donate their earnings to the over 75 charities listed on the site. Not only do SaskWatch members donate a sizeable share to these charities, most of those charities were recommended by community members themselves....
