Do you need to know more about your consumer?
Questions you may have
Who is my consumer? What do they need? What motivates them? How can I be sure my brand meets their needs? What messages are most relevant to them?

Why do consumer insight research?
Understanding your consumer is key to ensuring that your product, brand, service or offering is best suited to meet your consumers’ needs. In an unpredictable and changing marketplace, it is important to keep up-to-date with who your consumer is and what drives them so you can understand why they are/aren’t engaging with you. Consumer insight research is a window into the world of your consumer, to help you better meet their needs and communicate effectively with them.

Do you want to understand your brand better?

Questions you may have
How do I come up with a brand positioning? Is my brand positioning working? How is my brand performing? How do I grow my brand? How do I launch a new brand?

Why do brand research?
In order to stand out in a cluttered market place a brand needs to be unique, relevant, offering something different, functionally and/or emotionally, from competitors. Consumers should remember your brand, identify with it and choose it as it meets their needs best. Brand research can help you to understand your brand better and explore ways to make it more relevant to your target consumer.

Do you want to get closer to your consumer?

Questions you may have
How do I immerse myself in my consumers’ world? How do I get to know my consumer as a person? How can I understand the day-to-day reality of my consumers’ life better?

Why do immersions (ethnographic research)?
Immersions provide the opportunity to observe your consumer in their own environment, e.g. at home, while socialising, while shopping, etc. In a diverse society the background and culture of the product or brand marketer and advertiser may be quite different from that of the end user. This means the context in which your product or service is used may not be what you expect. Immersions help you to understand the needs of your consumer better, as well as gaining first-hand experience of their world. This enables you to better meet their needs.

Do you want to know more about focus groups?

Questions you may have
How can I learn about my consumer by watching them in a group discussion? How can I see my consumer face-to-face? What do my consumers think of my product/brand/service?

Why do focus groups?
Focus groups give you the opportunity to listen to and observe a group of like-minded consumers as they discuss their lives, needs, desires, product usage, brand perceptions, etc. The list of topics that can be discussed in a focus group is endless. Focus groups are invaluable when you want in-depth and creative insight into your research question. The discussion setting provides a springboard for creativity and insight that is harder to gain in a one-on-one engagement.

Are you meeting your customers’ needs?
Questions you may have
How well is my product/brand/service meeting my customers’ needs? How can I improve what I offer to better meet my customers’ needs? How can I keep my customers loyal?

Why do customer satisfaction research?
You may believe that you are offering customers the best product, the best customer service and all at a great price, but how can you be sure that you are meeting your customers’ expectations. Acquiring new customers is a harder task then retaining existing customers, which means it is important to ensure current customers are happy. Customer satisfaction research provides you with feedback both in terms of what you are doing well, but also highlights key areas for improvement. This enables you to fine-tune your offering, as well as ensuring you can address problems before they start to impact on your bottom line.

Questions you may have
