Building product manufacturer opps in Omnibus Survey of Homeowners.

Home Innovation Research Labs to Launch Homeowner Omnibus Survey in Early August

Many building product manufacturers would love to have input from homeowners — either DIY'ers or those interested in a professional home remodel — but don't have the time or budget to field a nationwide custom survey of homeowners. Home Innovation Research Labs is launching a Homeowner Omnibus Survey next month to help manufacturers in this situation.

A quick and cost-effective way to gauge consumer reaction to a new building product or assess a product’s competitive advantage is to sponsor one or more questions in the upcoming Homeowner Omnibus Survey, one of the many survey products available through Home Innovation Research Labs.

No matter what a manufacturer’s market intelligence objectives, Home Innovation Labs can include questions to meet those objectives, and the process is easy:

  • Sponsors supply Home Innovation Labs with their questions, or provide their research objectives and allow Home Innovation to draft the questions.
  • The web-based survey goes out to homeowners August 7th - at least 600 responses anticipated.
  • Responses remain confidential to sponsors, and tabulations are provided by August 17th.
  • The fee to participate is dependent upon the number and complexity of questions, but typically ranges from $400 to $600 per question.
