Real Simple Magazine

For Real Simple magazine, in fact for all of Time Inc., this was the first time a panel was created exclusively for editorial use — to help inspire, refresh, and act as a reality check. While it was initially designed to inform editors, the value soon became apparent to other departments — such as ad sales, marketing and PR – who all wanted access to the panel members as well.

What On Your Mark did for Real Simple was nothing short of amazing. It was apparent that they were more than just a vendor for hire — they became a partner who was always available, tirelessly enthusiastic, while embodying a proactive, creative spirit that’s none too common. It’s clear that they are out in the field everyday listening to what’s next, what’s most relevant, and what really works – in short, they speak ‘women.’ –Amy Vanderbes, leader of Real Simple research team for the panel launch

American Greetings

When American Greetings decided to explore our new strategic target, we knew we could trust On Your Mark to not only meet our objectives but also to deliver thorough and thought provoking results that can be easily interpreted across several areas of our business – which is not an easy task!  We’ve enjoyed our experience with the team and look forward to working on many future projects together. –Regan Benko, Consumer Insights Analyst at American Greetings


I have been to several qualitative training sessions over the years, but none have compared to the real world, personalized experience I received at OYM. Brenda and team take the time to get to know you and teach you how to harness your strengths and overcome any obstacles, big or small. The feedback I received was constructive and truly improved my moderator skills, even by the next group. It’s amazing what some simple tweaks and new ideas can do to make both your participants and clients more engaged. I highly recommend OYM’s qualitative research training whether you are brand new starting from scratch, or an experienced moderator looking for a fresh outlook and tips. OYM’s vast experience and expertise will not only provide rich training but also a fun, exciting experience! – Amy Harrell, Senior Research Analyst at H.E.B. Grocery Company
