    What is Pick1?
    Retargeting via automated Market Research - Big Data for Opinions

    Pick1 is an end-to-end solution building a bridge between the two, based on three simple things: questions, insights, actions. By using Pick1 you engage your users with a multi-touchpoint approach, collecting opinions and multi-dimensional social analytics.

    Pick1 dynamically aggregates and clusters the collected information to deliver actionable data, for Brands and SMBs alike to be able to retarget their audience and critically improve their Return on Investment.
