Our Hybrid Method Research combines multiple methods of data collection. We believe a hybrid effort yields the most accurate results.



We partner with Wick to utilize cutting edge research tools to better measure and understand your target audience. Spry Strategies utilizes premier partners like I360, L2, and Aristotle for clean, accurate consumer and political data. 



Spry Strategies utilizes premier online technology offered through Google and Survey Monkey. We provide two types - target and panel audience. Online surveys are a great tool to reach millennials and demographics that are typically hard to reach with traditional polling methods. 



Live Phone Surveys are viewed as the gold standard of phone interviews.

Our Live Surveys to landlines, cell phones or a combination are effective ways of reaching even the most stubborn

sample segments.
