Methodolgy: "Try & Buy"
Prospects were offered the opportunity to evaluate the Model 123 ScopeMeter on 10-day trial basis (Fluke paid shipping costs both ways).
Follow-up sales calls were made with end-users who didn't purchase immediately at the end of the 10-day trial period.
A programmed chip within the demo unit disabled the ScopeMeter at the conclusion of the trial period.
Martin Technical Research completed approximately 3,000 interviews in 12 months, with Fluke shipping 1,200 product evaluation kits over that same period.
Sales conversion rate was 40%, with unit sales averaging 1.8 ScopeMeters per buying site.
