Diary Studies

Diary Studies for Market Research

Diary studies are mainly used to collect information from respondents about their experiences.  Over a period of time, respondents normally log their thoughts in a diary.  This is a particularly useful qualitative research method for collecting information on habits or on long processes.

An understanding of the following long-term behaviours can be achieved via a diary study:

  • Habit: When do respondents use a product or service?
  • Usage: How do respondents use a product or service?
  • Attitudes: How do respondents feel?
  • Behaviours: How loyal are respondents over time?
  • Motivation: Why do respondents use a product or service?
  • Customer journeys: What touchpoints does the respondent interact with?
