What is opinion and marketing research?

“Marketing research is a legitimate and scientific process of acquiring data and opinions from the public. Researchers seek to determine the public’s opinion regarding products, issues, political candidates, and other topics. Such information is used to develop new products, improve services, influence policy, and is used by health care providers, the government, airlines, private businesses and others. The survey research process is key to improving or maintaining the quality of life.

Survey research provides the goods and services that you want. Since researchers cannot interview everyone, you may represent thousands of people like yourself that have similar opinions and preferences. This is your chance to be heard. Researchers are trained to listen to the voice of the respondent.” (www.youropinioncounts.org, 2007)

All activities are strictly for research purposes and sales are never involved.

The Most Common Marketing Research Methodologies Include:

  1. Telephone Surveys and Recruiting
  2. Focus Group Discussions
  3. In-store Intercept
  4. Internet Research
  5. In-depth Interviews
  6. Large Group Surveys
  7. Taste Tests

“Tammy asked that I contact you to thank you and your staff on doing a great job with our recent project. She was extremely happy with the recruit itself. She also wants you to know that your facility staff is amazing. Everyone went above and beyond in meeting all of our needs. She felt that you guys took total care of her and the clients under less than ideal circumstances. She particularly wanted to point out Kim. I know we had many last minute requests, tons of materials, room changes, etc. Tammy felt that everyone was just amazing and she is very appreciative. I would also like to thank you and your staff for a great job. Ara and I felt it was a pleasure to work with you and clearly your staff is top notch. Thank you for all of your hard work. ”
