Parking customers to get gas cards sponsored by car manufacturers


inSearchX and Strategic Vision have joined forces to create a new research platform that rewards consumers with gas cards.



For over 30 years, market research firm Strategic Vision has conducted the New Vehicle Experience Study, which asks consumers about a vehicle they purchased, their likes, dislikes, and interest in other vehicles. Nearly every auto manufacturer utilizes the study to provide insight into consumer sentiment and vehicle ownership to guide marketing and product design decisions.

“Knowing the hearts and priorities of consumers is essential to helping provide the best tools to make decisions,” states Alexander Edwards, President of Strategic Vision. “We are excited to help ease some of the pains of the vehicle ownership experience in exchange for their thoughts and feelings about the vehicle they drive.”

Strategic Vision enlisted inSearchX and their Perpetual Search™ platform, AskOtto, to innovate the survey distribution and reach consumers when they are most engaged with their vehicles.

inSearchX adapted the survey to its platform to allow consumers to participate in SV surveys when parking, fueling or servicing their cars. Respondents are entered into a weekly gas card sweepstakes.

“It is exciting when a traditional program, one around for decades, can be reengineered and reimagined to create new opportunities and benefits for consumers. We are happy to be a part of this transformation,” said Eric Brown, CEO of inSearchX.

The survey will soon be available at thousands of gas pumps, parking lots, hotels, and more. Mr. Brown also stated his hope that a strong consumer response will expand the sweepstakes.
