Month in Review: August 2017

September 2, 2017

Summer may be winding down, but the Drive Research team isn't. August has been a busy month for our team. Over the past 4 or 5 weeks, our team has been making a lot of impact. We've completed projects, began several new projects, networked with other professionals, and remained committed to giving back to the community.


Safe to say we've been having a blast. Especially since we've been at The Great New York State Fair conducting the official fair survey! Here's to our awesome survey team, Team Yellow. We'll have more on this later in the blog post.


Here's a few highlights from August!



 Find out everything our team has been up to!



Drive Research is On The Road Again

It's safe to say Drive Research loves road trips. On August 1st our team traveled to the Finger Lakes with Advance Media New York. Here's to enjoying some scenic views while discussing our love for market research.

What's Better Than Winning?

We know it's important to provide sweepstakes, raffles, or other rewards for research. Let's face it, oftentimes its necessary to offer an incentive for research. In a previous post, we discussed a few reasons why you should offer a reward for research.



Congrats to our winners! Thanks for participating.


Here's to Giving Back!

We're excited about giving back! A few of our recent donations include Think Together, Food Bank of South Jersey, and United Way of Greater Attleboro/Taunton.


Did you about the give back program at Drive Research? For every single project we complete with our clients we donate a percentage of profits to organizations in need. We love to make our projects a win-win-win for all involved, learn more.



 Love to give back? We know the feeling.


Let's Talk Social

On Thursday, August 17th Emily, Research Analyst, was all geared up to talk about social media at the Social Media Breakfast Syracuse at Eric Mower + Associates!


Coffee and tips... what a great way to start the day.

What can we say? We love to give back in more ways than one.

Did You Know? Drive Research is the Official NYS Fair Survey Team

Team Yellow, the Drive Research survey team that conducts the official survey for The Great New York State Fair, was out in full force all 13 days of the Fair! We collect feedback from those who exit the Fair asking questions about their experience and their demographics to help improve the Fair for 2018.


Below are a few highlights from our team during the Fair this year.



 Team Yellow is reaching new heights, catching big fish, and racing to the top.
