Introduction

Getting started with Sprig and in-product research

Sprig is a product research platform that helps you automatically capture the user insights you need to consistently improve your product, user experience, marketing, and more.

While traditional research is slow, difficult to target, and lacks context, Sprig studies are delivered automatically to specific users at specific moments throughout the customer journey — all within the product experience.

Before we begin with the specifics, let's take a moment to review the solutions available from Sprig to support your research strategy.

Sprig supports two primary delivery methods:

In Product solutions are described as delivering research engagements via:

Out of Product solutions are described as delivering research engagements by:

  • Using Sprig to Email a study to prospective respondents directly.
  • Incorporating a Link to a study in your existing customer communication media.

The In Product methods may require a few more steps or colleagues to get involved, while the Out of Product methods require very few steps or a need for colleagues to contribute to launching your first study.

Sprig also supports several integration options that can help you refine your research strategy over time. Integration options are excluded from our Quick Start guides but can be found in the Integrations.

In Product

To get started with In Product research, you'll need to determine the best options based on your skillset or your team's capacity. Listed below are some considerations when getting started with either Website and Web Applications or Mobile Applications.

  • Websites and Web Applications
    • Your team's preference for a native JavaScript installation or use of Google Tag Manager
    • Either option is viable. The Quick Start guide describes their trade-offs.
  • Mobile Applications
    • Your team's preference for iOS, Android, and or React Native.
    • Your team's sprint cycles, skill sets, product roadmap, and relationship with operating system providers.

Out of Product

To get started with Out of Product research, you'll need access to a few internal data sets and understand how that data set needs to be formatted so that Sprig can support your research strategy. Listed below are some considerations when getting started with either Email or Link delivery.

  • Email
    • The list of users to send it to and an attribute about those users.
    • Access the dataset that can be exported, transformed, and imported.
  • Link
    • A place to embed the link, such as a website or an email.
    • Access to a data set that can be exported, transformed, and imported.

Start Simple

For your first study, we recommend starting simple.

  1. Identify your most urgent business or user experience problem.
  2. Select the delivery method you'd like to use.
  3. Choose one of our research templates.

The Quick Start guides provide an introduction to the four delivery methods: Web, Mobile, Email and Link.

You can get far more advanced with your targeting and delivery as you get more comfortable.
