2) Design and execute your Market Research Study

First, you'd want to come up with a hypothesis or research question that you want to answer with your study. For example, you might want to know how people react to different types of videos, or if there are certain types of videos that are more likely to evoke an emotional response. 

1. You'd want to come up with a hypothesis or research question that you want to answer with your study. In this case, your research question might be something like, "What types of videos are more likely to confuse viewers?"

2. Then, you'd need to create your study design. This would involve deciding what types of videos you want to include in your study, how you'll collect data from viewers, and how you'll analyze the results.

3. To collect data from viewers, you could use a survey tool like Qualtrics or SurveyMonkey. In your survey, you could include a link to the video (or videos) that you want people to watch using VideoFeel.

4. To analyze the results, you could look at the percentage of people who said they were confused by the video (or videos). 

💡 You'll be able to match the declarative answers to questions to the spontaneous ones. This leads to a better quality of data

You could also segment your results by different demographic groups to see if there are any patterns.

Wrap up

Emotional video analysis can be a great way to understand how people react to different types of videos. By designing your study carefully and using a tool like VideoFeel, you can collect accurate data that can help you answer important research questions.
