Attitude and awareness studies are the bread and butter of market research. These valuable tools enable you to measure the changing perceptions that current and prospective customers have about your and your competitors’ products and services. As customer channels evolve, we ensure your A&A studies keep pace, so that you’re always tracking the right trends.
Market surveys. Whether you are contemplating a strategic shift or new product packaging, direct feedback from existing and potential customers yields extremely powerful input into your decision-making process.. We help you create survey questions, organize and implement the survey in almost any medium, and help you interpret and summarize the results.
Global, multi-lingual studies. Fielding meaningful cross-cultural studies requires more than a translated survey and reliable sample. Knowing the minutiae of local business conventions, such as when to use commas as decimals in which European countries, is critical to making your survey read as a locally-produced questionnaire. This elicits more thoughtful and considered responses.
Content and thought leadership development. Consolidate your position as a thought leader in your industry. We create studies that highlight and inform your industry or market on key issues. By capturing, understanding and publishing the latest thinking on critical business issues, you can broadcast and strengthen your organization’s leadership position.
Executive interviews. Our expert interviewers know how to pique the interest of executives. We develop thought-provoking questions on the key business topics that address your concerns. In addition to gaining critical insight from this premium qualitative research, you also receive an effective promotional tool, presented in a professional, attractive package.
Focus groups and one-on-one interviews. Learn what people are really thinking and saying, with depth and nuance. Information gleaned from speaking with your target customers or suppliers provides critical language and direction for studies. One-on-one interviews provide insights that can showcase findings with personal details, bringing life to the “numbers.”
Market trend analysis. We turn qualitative results and quantitative data into actionable reports and recommendations that uncover opportunities in changing market trends.
Market forecasting. Our deep experience, along with a global network of business contacts, means we can locate the best information sources available. We are uniquely qualified to build sophisticated forecasting models using published statistics, original survey data, official databases and other professional sources.
Segmentation and cluster analysis. Survey respondents can typically be categorized into meaningful groups, based on their responses to apparently unrelated questions. The resulting “clusters” can yield powerful customer segments that inspire new marketing strategies.
Factor analysis. Combining specific responses to related questions is a powerful analytic tool that frequently uncovers insight into customer needs, wants and aspirations.
Correlation analysis. To pull the right lever in your business strategy you need to be clear on the likely impact of any change you make. By statistically evaluating the relationships between variables, we can reveal important causal links and help guarantee success.
Pricing (conjoint) analysis. Setting the optimal price for a product or service means you’re not leaving money on the table. Conjoint analysis uses trade-off scenarios to measure the perceived value of products and services in a realistic choice-based environment. You can use conjoint analysis to forecast customer acceptance of features and price to ensure market success.
