I’m sure other useful stuff will come along eventually, but we gotta say that for now, Gutcheck gets our vote for one of the best things going, and as it turns out, we’re not alone.

At the recent DEMO spring conference, a place where the next big things strut their start-up stuff, Gutcheck took home the coveted People’s Choice Award, and 1 million dollars of advertising on the IDG network. You can check out a short video of their presentation (we’re loving the Beastie Boys soundtrack).

In case you haven’t been paying attention, Gutcheck is the new DIY qualitative research method that connects you to your target market and allows you to chat with them one-on-one in a matter of minutes.

Not only are we thrilled that they won (fine, we are a little bias), but we think it’s pretty cool that people are recognizing just how important it is to get feedback and insights from their consumers. As qualitative researchers, it makes us feel good to see a start-up technology that’s all about having a dialogue and completing the story stand head and shoulders above the rest.

Nice work guys.

The results we received from the iModerate one-on-one, in-depth conversations were much more enlightening than what we typically garner from open-ended verbatim responses. The live moderator offers us the ability and flexibility to probe deeper on certain points, enabling us to get stronger, less vague information. That unique capability has proved extremely valuable to us, and has made this IM-based platform an integral part of our research toolbox.
