You have definitely heard what marketing research is. Maybe you even did it by yourself or were involved. For the next 5 minutes, we will try to increase your marketing research knowledge and perhaps make you think about the needs for changes.

 

What was interesting to your clients yesterday is no longer relevant for them. The market is changing and new trends are emerging. In order to remain successful and take leading positions in the market, you have to keep pace with the times.

According to the European Society of Marketing Research Professionals (ESOMAR), over the last 20 years, the global marketing research market has grown by almost 150 times and is constantly continuing to grow. According to the latest Market Research report, it has reached more than $48 billion this year. This means that marketing research is one of the key elements of strategy formation for absolutely any brand, regardless of scale.

At the same time, the accuracy of research results depends not only on the sample but also on the selected tools, methodologies and metrics used by companies conducting market research.

Today different types of marketing research exist. Experts have dozens of different metrics that are used to determine:

– brand awareness;

– its position in the market;

– the target audience;

– strengths and weaknesses of the company;

– loyalty and stability of the client base;

– consumer attitude towards the brand;

– satisfaction of the audience;

– customer insights.

The main two types of market research are qualitative and quantitative research methods.

The first one includes in-depth interviews with consumers, expert opinions and focus groups. Such a method does not require significant financial investments and it reveals the main motives of the consumer, his pain points and insights on the products and services using.

The next one is quantitative research methods.

As a result of quantitative marketing research, you get figures and prove hypotheses formed on the basis of qualitative research, which can help to form the right brand strategy. They are also used when you need accurate statistics.

For effective business organization and functioning, we recommend to use them comprehensively. The key to the success of such research is an adequate analysis of the situation with the provision of possible solutions to problems.

Global marketing research companies help:

  • to study the own potential (analysis of sales market, identification of consumer motives);
  • to find out how competitors work;
  • to provide possible ways of solving existing problems and preventing the possible ones.
