Market understanding research.
Identify trends and market nuances to position your product or service for success.
Understanding the wider context of a market is crucial in helping you differentiate your offering and identify new opportunities for your business.
Our approach to market understanding research is designed to provide a deep foundational understanding of how markets think and act, so that you can understand the most relevant way to position your products and services, as well as find whitespace for innovation.
We approach market understanding research by looking at the wider spheres of influence on a market, taking a macro understanding of trends and behaviours before zooming in on specific nuances within your desired target audience. We partner with you throughout to ensure we build on your existing knowledge, to deliver new news.
To inform market understanding research, we bring together insight from a diverse range of sources: consumers, subject matter experts and secondary research materials – including your own past learnings and established cultural norms. This approach allows us to combine broad contextual learnings with targeted findings that we can workshop into detailed action plans with your team.
The impact market understanding research can have on your business:
Develop a rich macro understanding of a market to inform your strategy
By understanding the lifestyle, needs and wants, attitudes and cultural context of your target audience, we can provide a clear list of tangible actions based upon market observations.
Find whitespace for innovation
By helping you understand the trends at play, we can identify new opportunities for innovation within your market.
Design effective marketing strategies
We help you find ways to sharpen your marketing collateral to appeal to a desired audience – building upon cultural insights.
