Lightspeed Research has almost 75 years experience of developing panel research. In 1937, the company established the first 1,000 person mail panel in the US. In 1970, it started conducting telephone interviews and, in 1996, Lightspeed started providing online research.
Lightspeed surveys 3,000 people per market, per quarter, for mobileSQUARED. All panelists join through a double opt-in registration process and participate in profile surveys covering a wide range of topics in key vertical markets. Timely profiling data is consistently updated. Potential panelists must pass through a series real-time, technology-driven verification checks during registration before they may join the panels. During surveys, panelists pass through quality checks to ensure they are fully engaged.
