    5 Things We Wish You Knew About Market Research

    As I've written about before in a post titled 8 Reasons Businesses Avoid Market Research, far too many decision-makers do not integrate custom market research into their daily operations for a variety of reasons. Some do not see the value, some do not have the time, and some simply do not believe market research can make an impact. Others believe the data will not tell them anything they don't already know. So for all of the non-believers in customer experience (CX) and voice of customer (VoC),

    Top 8 Reasons Businesses Avoid Market Research

    Market research. People either love it or hate it depending on their past exposure to it. It seems to be a very polarizing topic in business where you'll either hear one of two stories. Story one, how a concept testing project led to a few critical improvements to a product that led to a projected 10% increase in sales. Story two, a focus group of participants that absolutely hated a new branding campaign but the client ignored some of the feedback and launched one of the most successful re-imag

This usually leads to a question similar to "When thinking about SUVs what is the first brand that comes to mind?" Or "When thinking about toothpaste, which brand comes to mind first?" Similarly, the next series of questions typically involves a few more "what else comes to mind" or a series of yes and no questions asking "Are you aware

    The Difference Between a Commodity and Advisor in Market Research

    Over the years, I've seen far too many market research vendors focus on executing or administering the research instead of working as an advisor to their customers. Although the administration of such a project is key (programming surveys, managing fieldwork, and providing results), vendors often lose sight of the bigger picture. In the majority of cases, customers are buying market research advice, not the tools. Regardless of the the scope and statement of work, as a market research consultant

    The Double-Sale of Market Research

    One distinctive factor differentiating supplier side research from client-side market research is the requirement of selling the process. Clients who hire their own in-house market research team clearly have a need for market research. In client-side research, teams have to "sell" to their management team when they need specific market research projects. For example, this internal sale would involve the Target research team convincing Target management to commission customer focus groups to und
