FAQs

SenseCheck is an online platform that gets you bite-size feedback on your marketing ideas, collateral or thinking from 5 time served marketing experts. Independent experts selected from our huge panel of advisors.

SenseCheck is for small businesses whether  B2B or B2C  who face resource limitations and who want to optimise their marketing results without spending a fortune on consultancy or research.

Life in the hot house of a small business can be frenetic, and your small team and passion for your product can lead to “in-the-bubble” thinking and a dangerous lack of an external, cold-eyed perspective.

SenseCheck is ideal for informed gut-feel feedback on execution such as websites, email newsletters, adverts, pitch decks, social media posts etc. Check any marketing collateral that can be quickly viewed and understood.

You can also bounce a marketing plan or perhaps ask about a new product idea or even a new business if summarised in a simple easy to read 1 pager.

If you’re not sure if we can test what you need, get in touch with the SenseCheck team info@sensecheck.com

Qualitative research, one-to-one interviews, focus groups, ethnography and social listening are both time-consuming and expensive. And it may not be able to even find or get hold of your target customer.

Yes, tools like Google Analytics, Hotjar, or A/B testing can tell you what is or isn’t performing but they can’t tell you why. Nor are these tools always suitable for SMEs, because to get extract valuable insights you may need significant traffic.  And they focus on on line marketing, which is only one part of the story.

With SenseCheck you get intelligent actionable feedback from experienced marketers. And note, this is an anonymous, objective external appraisal, not subject to the biases of asking around the office, or your friends. 

We invite marketers who are passionate about the marketing industry and helping SME’s succeed. Each has at 10yrs + marketing experience and most a relevant industry qualification.  All have real depth experience of several key marketing specialisms and bags of hard won, real world smarts. Our team personally check each applicant’s LinkedIn Profile.

We can’t offer a 100% guarantee (this is the internet after all), but be assured any risk here is genuinely very, very small.

When you submit an item for feedback, you will receive five responses. The algorithm selects respondents from our pool of qualified panellists. Only those that have responded will actually see your submission. In effect, everyone else is locked out, making it very unlikely for any competitors to stumble across your test this way. 

We trust our members, and by signing up they agree to the membership pledge but we cannot guarantee or speak for them. 

Having said that, bad actors will be removed from the platform.

At no point is your submission or feedback shared on any public forum by SenseCheck without your express permission.

Your marketing will be public soon anyway. Isn’t it better to take a tiny risk of it “getting out” compared with a much bigger risk of getting it wrong?

We are not trying to take the place of other kinds of research. But your customer (even if you can get to them) won’t necessarily give you all the feedback you need. Experience marketing eyes are a different kind of lens. Not to mention faster and easier to get access to with Sensecheck.

Customer research can be time-consuming and/or expensive (especially in B2B). Not something you can do for every and any matter. A Sensecheck is a pragmatic alternative. And for sure, it’s better than just taking a pure guess from a perspective trapped inside the company bubble. 5 external views should give sufficient breadth to give you greater confidence.
