NetQuest is the gold-standard for Internet music
and perceptual testing. There are three primary components in
the NetQuest system: Registration, Music Testing and Data
You place a clickable
link on your radio station’s website inviting listeners to
participate in your music test and give their opinions on the
music you play. We design the registration page to closely
match the look and feel of your station’s website, and collect
some very basic demo, gender and radio listening information
from each respondent.
Once registered, listeners get to score
their first set of songs and answer any perceptual questions
you’re asking. Respondents that are not qualified (due to age,
gender, radio station listening, etc.) are still given a
virtual test. They get to listen to and score songs, but we
don’t collect or save their data. This prevents alienating
respondents that listen to your station, but might not qualify
for your NetQuest music test.
After registering and confirming the validity of
their email address, respondents are invited again at periodic
intervals (defined by you), to come back and score another set
of songs. This limits the frequency that respondents can
participate in your music testing.
Many radio stations and web hobbyists
have already figured out how to play song clips on a website
and collect some rudimentary scoring information from
listeners… perhaps your Chief Engineer has cobbled together
some sort of “music testing” contraption for your own
Where NetQuest shines is in the back-end data
analysis tools that you can access. Remember, NetQuest is
Internet-based music and perceptual testing software built on
the highly successful ComQuest music testing software
platform. Over 14 years of development and enhancement has
been leveraged into NetQuest.
Analyze your song data using more than 27
reports, including the standard song score reports – plus -
Z-Score, Compatibility, Potential Positive, P1/Cume breakouts,
Mean, Ethnicity, etc. Or, you can design and create your own
custom reports using NetQuest’s Report Builder.
Pie charts, bar graphs, Zip Code analysis and
full data exporting are all easily available via your
encrypted, secure connection to our Webservers. With NetQuest,
you aren’t relegated to viewing your results in a web browser.
Using our thin-client NetQuest Connect desktop program, you
can access your data in real-time utilizing a dashboard that
is quite similar in look and feel to all our other ComQuest
music testing products.
