In The kNOW: It’s that time of year again…or is it?

By Jeri Fields / October 26, 2022

For this month’s ‘In the kNOW’ we wanted to challenge ourselves. Just how fast could we understand consumer point of view (CPOV) on a trending topic? We used our own ‘Quick Turn Qual’ product to investigate consumer sentiment around shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We posed an open-ended question for about an hour…

In the kNOW: Where We Stand and How We Keep Standing!

By Jeri Fields / September 21, 2022

There’s a LOT going on right now. Which means there’s plenty to weigh on people’s minds. And hopefully, we’ve all found ways to cope with the stress and anxiety that comes with worry. But with all the different current issues on the local, state, national and global stages happening, we were curious, “What do people…

In The kNOW: Work 2.0: What Does Yours Look Like?

By Jeri Fields / July 26, 2022

Remember just three short years ago sitting at a conference table…with other people… in real pants? What about Casual Fridays and Beer Car Thursdays?  Only Thursdays and Fridays. (I do kind of miss Beer Cart Thursdays, they felt rebellious and like an adult version of a well-earned ice cream cone treat.) Oh, how far we’ve come in three…

In The kNOW – Checking In – It’s More Than COVID

By Jeri Fields / May 24, 2022

There’s a lot on our plates right now. We’ve still got Covid going on, the political stage is flaring up in different ways, summer has arrived, and people are going back to work and planning trips – or not. Considering all this, we wanted to ask folks questions about how they’re feeling about some key…

Cryptocurrency: Is it ‘virtually’ inevitable?

By Jeri Fields / March 22, 2022

Standing in the grocery store line the other day, I overheard a conversation between a father and teenage son about a guy who bought two pizzas with 10,000 Bitcoins back in 2010. At the time, 10K in Bitcoin was only worth about $40. According to the son, if the man had just kept those 10,000…

Are You Playing with a Full Deck?

By Jeri Fields / February 22, 2022

Last month we looked at a LOT of numbers. Lots and lots of data. And sure, the ‘numbers’ are necessary to allocate resources, run statistical analysis, determine trends and their significance and more. But relying on quantitative methods and data alone can leave a lot on the table. This month’s In the kNOW discusses why including qualitative…

In The kNOW: The Unvaccinated: A Closer Look

By Jeri Fields / January 27, 2022

Many of us here at NuVoodoo recently got our SECOND round of COVID. Despite being vaccinated and boosted. It seems we all know someone that has now either gotten COVID a second time or has had it despite being vaccinated. But none of us personally know a vaccinated person who’s become seriously, hospital, ill. We…

More or Less? Looks Like It’s Both

By Jeri Fields / November 18, 2021

The shelves weren’t – middle of the pandemic, no toilet paper in sight and Lysol rationing – empty. But over the last couple of months, we noticed some ‘holes’ – bare spots on shelves where our favorite brand, flavor, or scent would typically live. We saw car lots light on inventory and paid twice as…

A hesitant, but Happy Holidays 2021

By Jeri Fields / October 26, 2021

It’s that time of year again! It’s the time of year for a little indulgence (aka late-night raids on the trick-or-treat bag, a second piece of pumpkin pie, hot chocolate all-around). But this holiday season won’t be completely ‘back to normal’ for many. Last year many of us shopped and celebrated differently out of necessity.…

Back On the Town Anytime Soon?

By Jeri Fields / September 23, 2021

If you’re like us, your entertainment and dining out budget has gone way down and stayed down throughout the pandemic. We miss grabbing a drink with friends, taking the kids out for a treat, or just letting someone ELSE cook dinner for a change. In some ways, people are ready to get back to normal;…
