Market Research and Analysis
Market research is a key factor in maintaining competitiveness. Our techniques encompass both qualitative, such as focus groups, in-depth interviews, and ethnography, as well as quantitative techniques such as customer surveys, and analysis of secondary data.
We use their products. We use your products. We use our experiences as a foundation for our research. We look at qualative aspects of the market, such as pricing and brand position. Most importantly we tell you what we think - we think you hired us to tell you what we think, versus what we think you want to hear or what might cause the best outcome for us. We provide an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current and potential competitors only after we have experienced them. Then the spreadsheets come out.
