Use Custom Recruiting to Find Experts with Business Insights

May 3, 2022

Key takeaways from NewtonX CEO Sascha Eder’s talk on how AI and automation transforms B2B market research, delivered at GreenBook's IIEX North America 2022.

When it comes to business insights and getting answers to your company’s most vital questions, you’ve got to talk to the right people. That’s easier said than done. 

When making decisions about your company’s future, you need to be confident you are getting accurate insights and dependable data. Yet too often, market research falls short of delivering the information you need. The problem isn’t the questions you are asking. It’s who you are asking. 

Here are the highlights of NewtonX CEO Sascha Eder’s talk at  GreenBook’s IIEX North America 2022, discussing how custom recruiting transforms B2B market research for better business insights and a competitive edge.


The Business Insights Challenge

Imagine you’re the head of strategy at a large legacy US bank. You need to make big decisions, like improving your fintech offering to stay competitive. But what do your customers really need? What are your competitors doing in this area? How are they messaging and going to market?

You can’t sleep at night knowing you need to make a multi-million-dollar investment to stay relevant, in the game, and out in front. What you decide will make or break your company’s future.

You need detailed business insights, and to get them, you need to talk to potential customer decision-makers. So, you launch a survey, hoping to find CFOs in charge of fintech solutions.

The Challenge of Finding the Right Experts


The Challenge of Finding the Right Experts

You wait for answers as thousands of survey links are sent to unqualified professionals or unvetted panel respondents, saying: “Hi, take this survey and make $10 in 15 minutes.” Because your survey is sent to thousands of people with no practical way to screen them, you get unqualified respondents who game your survey’s screening questions in order to pass and get the $10. You end up with bogus results that don’t help you make a decision. 

The business insights you need are out there, but finding the right B2B market research agency who can give them to you is the challenge. 

The problem with B2B market research today is that you really know very little about the respondents.  Closed expert panels are limiting. Information is sparse and self-reported by respondents that want to fit the criteria to get paid. Finding the real specialists to give you the business insights and market intelligence you need is nearly impossible when you can’t screen respondents and vet information for accuracy. Incentives don’t make sense. Why would a $240-an-hour CFO spend time answering a survey to get $5?


Custom Recruiting for Better Sources of Business Insights
