Become a Cybersmile Research Partner

Cybersmile works alongside brand partners and educational institutions to undertake meaningful studies to better understand issues affecting internet users from all demographics.

After identifying a specific area of focus, we then work together to decide on the most appropriate method and sample size for the research and accompanying report.

After collating and managing the raw research data, Cybersmile’s design team will create a bespoke co-branded report which can be used to publish the findings, with the raw data being made available to the brand or educational institute for further analysis.

For brand partners, there is an additional option for Cybersmile to create a fully branded, educational module from the findings of the research to be incorporated into the Cybersmile Education Program. This option creates a legacy for the research partnership in addition to providing factually accurate and up-to-date information for internet users all over the world.
