Smartkarma commenced the Originals program in October 2018 with the twin objectives of:
- Delivering higher value-add to clients, and
- Augmenting Insight Providers payouts
In October 2019, we conducted a one-year review and rolled out an expanded program to:
- Simplify the Originals process to ensure quicker turnaround while ensuring the end product is truly Original.
- Expand the program to include (a) Smartkarma Roadshows and (b) Smartkarma Rapid Response.
Insights on topics chosen by the Smartkarma Research team, and paid for under the Premium Services framework and exclusive to the Smartkarma Research Network.
