Market Research and Your Brand

Market research can be a powerful tool for companies looking to optimize their brand messaging, improve their customer experience, and discover new opportunities for growth. But before you start running down to your local library or bookstore to pick up some market research books on Amazon (trust us, we get it), let us explain why market research is important and how you can use it effectively in your company’s day-to-day operations.


What is Market Research? 

Market research is a process of collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data about consumers, competitors, and markets. It’s used to determine what products or services are needed in the market and how much they should cost.

Market research can be qualitative or quantitative:

  • Qualitative refers to information that’s gathered through interviews or focus groups (people talking about their experiences). This type of information reveals insights into what consumers think about products or services but doesn’t provide any hard numbers. For example: “I think this new feature would make me more likely to buy your product” vs., “70% of people who have tried this product said they would recommend it.”
  • Quantitative uses statistical analysis to measure results in terms of numbers instead of words; it provides precise data on things like customer satisfaction levels with your brand’s products/services compared with those offered by competitors’ offerings


Why is Market Research Important? 

Market research is the process of gathering information about your market, customers and competitors in order to make better-informed decisions. Market research can be done at any stage of your company’s development, but it’s especially important if you’re looking to launch a new product or service.

Knowing who your customers are helps you create products that meet their needs. It also gives insight into what types of services they would like from you in the future–and how much they would be willing to pay for them! This can help determine whether or not there is potential demand for any given idea before investing too much time in developing it further (or scrapping it altogether).


Why Should You Conduct Market Research?

Market research is one of the most important tools you can use to understand your brand, customers and market. Conducting market research will help you answer questions such as:

  • Who are my target customers?
  • What do they think about my product or service?
  • What do they want from me?

The answers to these questions will give you a better understanding of what it takes to achieve success in the marketplace by providing insight into how well (or poorly) things are going right now.


Maintain a Strong Pulse on Your Industry 

Market research is a critical component of any business. It helps you understand the market, your competition and new opportunities or threats that may be coming down the pipeline.

It’s important to stay ahead of the curve and maintain a strong pulse on your industry so that you can identify trends before they become mainstream.
