Which is the most viable new product concept?
Bergent recommends a combination of qualitative and quantitative research to test the value of each new product idea. Bergent uses proven psychological techniques to test consumers’ purchase intent against:
- How interested they are in trialling
- How urgently they will trial
- How deeply the product will fit into their lives
- How often they will use product (assuming they like it after trial)
- Impact on their need states
- Emotional satisfaction
- How much buzz is likely to be generated around the new product
- Other factors relevant to the industry, category or target segment
Using a statistically robust sample, Bergent can provide a New Product Opportunity Score that ranks each new product idea in order of the most viable. Each idea gets a score based on an algorithm that takes into account how buyers and prospects rate each idea on the factors listed above.
The higher the score the more likely a solution to the problem will really impact on users’ lives and so is in great demand.
