Sales, Marketing, and Market Research
We provide market research services to support strategic and tactical decision-making.
Underlying most research engagements is information, data, and intelligence
gathered from secondary and primary sources. Our expertise lies in synthesizing
and analyzing research findings and making recommendations that are easily
understood and implemented.
Our goal is to give you the market insights needed to stay ahead of the competition, by helping you
- Understand the needs, wants, and expectations of your existing and prospective customer base.
- Understand your competition (what do they do better or worse, and lessons learned).
- Understand your distribution channels, your suppliers, and your trading partners, as well as your employees.
We help you gain this insight and understanding by applying a variety of market research techniques, including customer and market surveys, in-depth interviews, case studies, competitive intelligence, and product benchmarking. We use proven quantitative and qualitative analysis tools to identify consumer and customer purchasing behavior, and to examine how you compare to your competition (SWOT analysis).
Our competitive intelligence expertise is invaluable in getting you the feedback you need to refine your sales strategy in order to beat out the competition. We excel in win/loss analysis and in providing you with the intelligence needed to identify why customers buy from you or why prospects buy from your competition.
Our marketing consultants help you develop effective market positioning strategies or revamp existing strategies that have not met expectations. We assist you in identifying and defining target markets and positioning your products and services to meet the needs, wants, and expectations of the markets segments you aim to serve. Our services also cover branding, product launch, product mix, product design and pricing, market segmentation, mission statements and marketing communications.
We design and develop your promotional web pages, marketing and sales literature, as well as the entire suite of marketing communications collateral. Our goal is to build your image in conjunction with your branding, and give you a uniform look to present one face to the customer and to the public.
