Identify the strongest concept(s) to take forward for further iteration and development.
The start of the product development process is filled with creativity and new ideas. But how do you filter these down to determine which concepts will be a hit with consumers?
We work with businesses to help them move beyond blue sky thinking. With concept testing, we’ll help you develop a shortlist of viable concepts to take into the next stages of product development.
Using a range of qualitative and quantitative techniques, we’ll help you understand the consumer view of different concepts, exploring whether the product proposition, problem you’re trying to solve and reasons to believe resonate with your target audience.
By exploring different factors, employing a range of creative qualitative testing tools and benchmarking against our norms database, we can identify the concepts with the highest appeal, and understand how they can be refined, equipping you with the valuable insight you need to move to the next stage of development.
The impact concept testing research can have on your business:
Understand where to focus your product development
By uncovering the consumer view, we can provide clear direction on where to focus product development.
Identify target customers
Concept testing can be a valuable tool for determining the target audience for a product and understanding how to reach them.
Develop market-leading products
By putting consumers and their needs at the heart of product development, you can develop product and services that outperform the competition.
