What is PopResearch?

Pop is a fully automated DIY research platform designed with advertisers' needs in mind.

Survey Creation

How long does it take to set up a study?

Pop is the simplest UI for survey set up.

CreativePop and TrackingPop provide a framework of best practice questions and approaches with a high degree of customization to align with YOUR target, YOUR strategy, and YOUR information needs. The survey creation process is ‘mouse driven’ and should take about 15 minutes.

CustomPop® is 100% YOUR questions, so a full 30 question survey may take approximately 30 minutes to set up.

What types of stimulus and creative does Pop manage?

Pop can work across media and stimulus from static images, brand manifestos, to storyboards, to video. Pop accepts the following stimulus formats: aiff: 'audio/aiff’, doc: 'application/msword’, gif: 'image/gif’, jpeg: 'image/jpeg’, jpg: 'image/jpg’, mp3: 'audio/mpeg3’, mp4: 'video/mp4’, png: 'image/png’, rtf: 'application/rtf', txt: 'text/plain’, wav: 'audio/wav’.

What is the optimal size for stimulus files?

Pop can handle any sized file, although upload times will increase with files over 25MB. But most consumer studies should not include a file over 25MB as home bandwidths will affect viewing quality.

Is there anything unique to DIY research I should consider when creating my survey?

Pop is just like any online research approach, but because results are auto-charted for you it is worth considering the number of characters in things like ‘ad name’, ‘media/stimulus file naming’, and even attribute/statement length as the naming conventions you choose will appear on the results slide just as you entered them. As a rule of thumb limit file and ad names to 15 characters or less and custom attributes and statements to about 30 characters.


Which countries can PopResearch recruit from?

Pop prides itself on being able to recruit anyone in any country.

Which target audiences does Pop offer?

Pop allows you to preselect from over 400 demographically, behaviorally and attitudinally defined target audiences OR you can tell us your custom target and we will find them for you.
