When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.
― Ernest Hemingway

We want to help you listen. This global pandemic is a chance for us to listen, witness, and build true empathy for what people are experiencing. 

Starting today, you can use obvi text for free as a channel to gain honest, immediate insights directly from the people that matter to you. You will not be charged for use of the obvi platform. This is planned through the shelter-in-place currently set to end on May 3rd, but may change to align with conditions as they unfold.

There are three details to be aware of:

  1. Every user may have up to 4 active projects at one time.
  2. Each project may have up to 7 collaborators and 20 participants.
  3. If you want to pay participants by issuing Amazon gift card credit, you will need to add a credit card to your obvi account. 

To help you get started immediately, we wrote a post with a template COVID diary project along with tips for doing research right now. Our blog also has guidance for best practices about how to structure assignments, select participants, and many other remote research topics.

Please reach out via chat with questions or if you have specific research needs. Demos and other calls may take a little longer to schedule right now, but we promise we will respond.

We look forward to empowering your research over the next few months and beyond. 

Be kind, be open and stay safe!

💛 team obvi
