1. Tell us about your life journey in brief, Georgia?
I grew up spending 50% of my time in the UK, and the other half in the US. My father moved there when I was 12 years old and resides there until this very day.
I had always been obsessed with travel and my solo trips to the states gave me the independence boost I craved. Now, as a freelancer, I work very well independently and in my own space.
I studied at the University of Sussex in Brighton, majoring in Geography and Anthropology. Since then, I took various full-time roles I hated and now have found my way in the freelance community, working for myself is what I needed after all. Now, I work part-time for a market research firm based in New York, which involves reaching out to global experts to take part in an online survey in their field of expertise.
I love connecting with individuals worldwide, and linking back to my love for travel and studying communities, this combines the two very well.

3. What are the most effective methods for market research in 2020?
I would say the best methods are ensuring you are finding the right people to answer your surveys or participate in your projects.
If you have a bucket of ‘experts’ without narrowing your search enough, this will cause voids in your overall findings and make it less effective/lack depth. Also, paying people money of course – boosts your chance of receiving genuine responses.
