8 Simple tips to Analyze Qualitative Research

First of all
you need to know is what Qualitative Analysis in Research. Quantitative
analysis uses numerical data to identify statistical relationships between
variables. Quantitative data are numerical, ordinal, and nominal. For example,
surveys, questionnaires, and evaluations that include multiple choice items and
ratings (e.g., Likert scale) provide quantitative data for analysis.

Data analysis tools help researchers make sense of the data collected. It enables them to report results and make interpretations. How the data is analyzed depends on the goals of the project and the type of data collected. Some studies focus on qualitative data, others on quantitative data, and many on both.

Here’s your tip to help you to deal with your work!

1. There is a time and place to keep
things simple

  • Simple
    questions are often pragmatic ways to get the answer you are looking for.
  • Complex
    modeling and analysis have their place and can be extremely useful, but try to
    take a step back and think: Can this question be answered more efficiently?
  • Avoid
    ‘marketing-speak’ and keep things conversational, use terms and phrases that
    the person on the other end is going to understand.

2. Aim to get both emotional and
rational responses from the respondents

  • Consumers
    make both emotional and rational decisions, so it is important to measure both.
  • Emotion and
    logic are intertwined, and it would be foolhardy to base your strategies on the
    assumption that they are mutually exclusive.
  • This could be
    as simple as showing some stimulus and asking an open-ended question: ‘how this
    idea made you feel?’ or by providing a list of emotions for the respondent to
    choose from.
  • You may not
    be able to cover the entire spectrum of emotions, but often sentiment is just
    as valuable.

3. Don’t lead the conversation
toward the answers you want to hear

  • It is natural
    to want your research to confirm theories you already have; however, it is
    important to keep your personal opinions distant from the research methodology
    – we want to capture the genuine opinions which exist out there!
  • Keeping
    personal opinions distant leads to more reliable results and can greatly affect
    the success of any decisions made based on the research.

4. Try to test in black and white,
avoid the grey areas

  • When testing
    multiple items next to each other, it is advisable to not get too bogged down
    in the details.
  • It is often
    the case that marketers will want to test concepts or statements with only very
    slight changes in wording that will have no real significant impact on audience
    response. For example, if you’d like to test a handful of positioning statements,
    keep the format consistent but ideas, concepts, or themes vastly different.

5. Decide on the signposts for
success

  • It is
    important that you and your team all agree on what results are going to define
    success.
  • Before you
    give the go-ahead to launch fieldwork, take a moment to sit down in front of
    your questionnaire and think about what the results will look like. What result
    for each question would be considered a success? Should it meet or exceed
    benchmark or control scores? If so, what are the benchmarks or control scores?

6. Try to get both the why and the
what

  • While any
    researcher will recommend keeping text-based open-ended questions (verbatim) to
    a minimum, for key questions you should be asking respondents why they answered
    the way they did.
  • If you do so,
    try to be creative in the way you ask the question (like we see in qual),
    simply asking “why?” doesn’t always spur inspiring or articulate responses. For
    example, you could ask “can you give me an example of when that was a problem
    for you?”

7. Be aware of the opportunity for
replication

  • Be sure to
    construct your research methodology so that you can easily replicate in future
    for easy comparison across each point in time.
  • Do your best
    to future proof the questions and create clear and concise documents that
    detail the research, so someone else in your company can come in at any point
    and pick up where you left off.
  • Try to
    consider ways you can easily replicate the results so that time isn’t wasted
    re-charting the figures as each new wave of research comes in.

8. Understand the importance of
timing

  • Think ahead
    to the next 12 months, and try and identify the best time to conduct some
    quantitative research.
  • Try to
    consider external factors like seasonal or holiday periods, and key dates
    internally like EOFY, campaign launches, or reporting deadlines. Doing this
    will ensure you aren’t scrambling last minute, which often results in poorly
    executed research. .

No matter what your data analysis is about, using these steps
and tips can help you to effectively analyse all that information. It’s
important to get the analyses right as the validity of your research rests on
it. GoodLuck!
