Concept testing is the process of evaluating a concept (like a product or an ad campaign) and how it will be received by consumers before it goes to market.
Using our Expert Solutions, you can customize a concept test using our built-in expert methodology, launch to a target audience from our global panels, and receive presentation-ready reports.
You can purchase a concept test if your billing country is in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, or Australia. Concept tests are only available for English language surveys.

í Adding Stimuli
A stimulus is an image, video, or message concept shown to someone in a survey. The stimulus format you can upload depends on what type of concept test you choose. You can add up to 10 stimuli to a concept test.
After uploading your stimuli, you can use the textbox below to add a nickname. Nicknames aren't be visible to your respondents, but they can help keep you organized later in your analysis–especially if you're testing multiple stimuli that look similar.
