Capturing a look from the outside.
One essential problem organizations have when creating a marketing strategy is the inability to take a close look at what they are doing from the perspective of their customers. Our consultants can help marketers bridge the gap between a customer’s experience and expectations, opposed to the product or service provider’s assumptions. We provide insight that enables companies to target specific groups of customers, allowing for an effective allocation of marketing resources and the maximization of cross- and up-selling opportunities.
Taking steps in the right direction.
Product development may involve the evolution of an existing product line, or creation of an entirely new product that satisfies a newly defined customer want, or market need. The process is a series of steps that includes the conceptualization, design, development and marketing of newly created or newly rebranded products. Our experts can provide the necessary quantitative market research for all phases of the design process, including before the product or service is considered, while the product is being designed and after the product has been introduced.
Are you making the right investment decision?
The critical question any business needs to address before it allocates resources is whether the target market is large enough to support the financial requirements of the business model. Whether you are entering a new market, expanding within a market or releasing a new product, it is critical you understand the total size or total revenue of the market. Our company has dedicated and experienced research staff to help you with these activities, either as a standalone project or as a key part of a larger activity such as assessing the prospects for a proposed new product.
Due diligence is a detective game.
Just looking under the hood isn’t enough; you also need to know what you’re looking for, and have the experience to understand what you’ve found. Our team can see what others may miss—both in issues and opportunities.
