    What it is like Participating in a Market Research Study

    Working for a market research company, I generally am not given the opportunity to participate in research studies. Although my role at Drive Research is heavily focused on executing inbound and outbound marketing strategies, it is common for those working in the research industry to not be selected to join a study. To my surprise, I was qualified and asked to participate in a market research study with Facebook! In this blog post, I will outline the exact process from start to finish. Intere

    How would I describe the Quirk's Event in three words to someone who has never been? A market researcher's paradise.

    Brand Like a Boss | Using Market Research to Grow Business Awareness

    When you see the phrase, “Just do it” – what comes to mind? What about, “I’m Lovin’ It?” Can you immediately identify the brand responsible for these slogans? Of course, you can!

    Top 5 Books You Must Read if You Work in Market Research

    Over the years, I've really enjoyed reading books related to my passion and career in market research. The books that still sit on my bookshelf today collecting dust have helped me learn about perspective, new ways of thinking, and have even offered me tactical changes to improve how I do work at my market research company. Market research is a niche topic and there are not a lot of authors out there writing about it. So when I find a book in my travels that touches on the principles of market
