Tamedia, Switzerland’s largest media groups owning brands such as Tagesanzeiger, 20 Minuten, Sonntags Zeitung or Doodle, and many more, is always on the lookout for new technologies that make them more efficient.

For a planned lead article, a nationwide and representative poll was needed. As budget and time restrictions did not allow traditional survey methods, a new method was needed.


Boomerang Ideas with a representative boomerang on social media plus the included and automated weighting with data from the Swiss statistics office (BfS) was deemed a pragmatic cost/benefit-candidate as also only a week was available to gather the 1000 responses.

With our Representative Sample we collected over 1000 responses and were able to provide accurate targeting options (all age-groups) to get the polls to all age groups in all 7 geographic regions. 


In order to get representative results on regional levels, Tamedia launched a Pro poll, individually targeting all 7 greater regions of Switzerland in the respective language (German, French or Italian).
