WHO

WE ARE

Remember the little kid who always asked, "Why?  Why?  Why?"  Well, that's us, but all grown up and now uncovering the "whys" that really make a difference to your brand, your company, your future.  We ask, we listen, we think, we analyze, we recommend.  We've been doing it for 27 years for companies big and small​, ad agencies and marketing consultants, and we'd love to add you to our roster of satisfied, repeat clients.

 

We've been at it a long time, but we always bring a fresh perspective to every project.  We have a passion for research, a spirit that shows in how we tackle your challenges and how we ​become part of your team.

 

We start with your issues and objectives:  What do you already know?  What do you need to learn? What kinds of insights will drive your product and your business forward?  Once we know where you want to go, our experience and perspective will give you the optimal technique and research design to get you there.

 
 
 
 

WHAT

WE DO

 
 

Qualitative research is what we do, and what we do well.  We specialize in face-to-face research, establishing a rapport that gets us past the easy answers to real learning.  We know how to ask questions and -- just as important -- how to listen, so you come away with new insights.

We're skilled at talking with all kinds of people.  Whether with kids or teens, adults or seniors, we use perceptive questioning and creative techniques, along with humor and a winning smile, to dig deep and uncover real learning.

 

Focus groups, mini-groups, triads, dyads/pairs, individual interviews -- we work with you to find the best way to learn the most for you.

 

We will likely use a focus group facility, but we might interact with your target in their home, while they shop, or at a conference or trade show. We'll go wherever you'll get the best learning.  And we'll always go the extra mile for you.

 

We've worked in a broad range of categories and industries, so you get the experience and perspective that brings a fresh approach to every project, while tapping into years of expertise.  With every project, you get a career's worth of learning about what makes people tick.
