If you think market research is only for large corporations or companies with a dedicated marketing team then think again!
The Market Research Service is an affordable option that brings the benefits of market research to SME’s, entrepreneurs, community groups and the not-for-profit sector. Whatever your experience of conducting surveys (or lack of) we believe research can help you make better decisions for marketing success, employee retention or investment choices. Understanding and monitoring the needs and requirements of customers, employees, members, donors or visitors has never been more relevant than today. Being able to gauge potential changes in attitudes and preferences is pivotal for anyone wanting to ensure services, products, business practices or brand messages still resonate with key audiences.
If you are reading this then we assume you have some interest in taking forward a proposal or survey for your own research project. The good news is that undertaking market research has never been easier and while it can't stop major upheavals affecting your organisation, it will help to guide and shape your decision making. So, if you simply need help designing a workable questionnaire or require a complete survey to be undertaken on your behalf we can help you achieve your research goals.
