SAN FRANCISCO, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ask Your Target Market (http://www.AYTM.com), a sophisticated new online survey platform, and uSamp (http://www.uSamp.com), one of the world's fastest growing technology and online sample companies, today announced a partnership that makes uSamp's proprietary panel of more than 1.7 million screened and vetted U.S. survey respondents available to AYTM clients. The companies made the announcement at a featured press briefing at ad:tech San Francisco on April 12.
Powering the partnership is uSamp's SampleMarket 2.0, the next generation of its market-leading sample access platform, which offers real-time, self-service access to the uSamp panel. AYTM will seamlessly integrate access to the uSamp panel, with virtually no alteration to the elegant, intuitive user interface that has made AYTM popular with those needing quick, affordable market research surveys.
"With the AYTM platform, we have created a service that heretofore didn't exist," said Lev Mazin, CEO and co-founder, Ask Your Target Market. "While there are web applications offering affordable, self-service email marketing, on-demand printing and online advertising, nothing else provides powerful, self-service access to affordable target market research.
"Our integration with uSamp makes projects of virtually any scale feasible on the AYTM platform, entirely within our environment."
For uSamp, the partnership is yet another example of the advantages of the company's technology, through its API (Application Programming Interface) open platform solution, and the quality of its millions of validated and screened panelists.
"We're delighted to provide AYTM with real-time access to millions of richly profiled respondents and our robust Sample Market platform interface," said Matt Dusig, CEO and co-founder of uSamp. "AYTM has opened an entirely new niche for businesses that previously lacked the access, expertise or budget to conduct market research. We share that sensibility with AYTM - that the boundaries of market research are now expanding to encompass businesses of all sizes and complexities."
Separately, AYTM announced the addition of dozens of highly requested new features to its suite of online survey tools. Survey authors can now choose among six types of questions, add videos or images to illustrate their survey, and analyze and customize results in more detail. Agencies will be able to use the AYTM survey platform on a "white label" basis and offer self-branded market research services to their clients as part of their in-house portfolio of services.
"Thanks to the uSamp relationship and our battery of enhancements, we believe AYTM will now deliver a significantly better market research experience for all of our stakeholders - researchers, survey respondents and end clients," AYTM's Mazin said. "With our easy interface, pleasing design palette, simple navigation and lightning-fast results, conducting market research has never been this easy."
