In-depth Interview (IDI)
In-depth interview is conducted by either face-to-face, online, or telephone. It is an ideal method for market research to obtain valuable insights in target topics. One advantage of in-depth interview is our experts can deep-dive into the topics. Usually we prepare questionnaire (discussion guide) for interviews and ask question one by one, but it is important to ask extra questions for respondents’ answer to our first question. It requires interviewer’s experience regrading the topics.
