  2. 2. About Us Ipsos is 3rd largest research company in the world Vantis is a division specializing in connecting research results to financial impact across a variety of industry verticals – Mostly innovation focused – 25+ year history of model development 2
  3. 3. Topics 3
  4. 4. Stating the obvious 4
  5. 5. ….And the (very) slightly less obvious Going into 2011, among Western CEOs… More than 80% felt they could grow abroad Fewer than 50% felt they could grow at home Abroad Home 5
  6. 6. What is changing in research? 6
  7. 7. Means of reaching consumers is different… and changing fast ‘90s ‘00s Today + + ‘00s methods are combined with today’s 7
  8. 8. Social media is re-shaping consumer access Population is ranked 3rd in the world. 1. China 1,336,450,000 6. Brazil 192,651,000 2. India 1,178,436,000 7. Pakistan 169,010,500 3. Facebook 845,000,000 8. Bangladesh 162,221,000 4. United States 308,898,000 9. Nigeria 154,729,000 5. Indonesia 231,369,500 10. Russia 141,927,297 8
  9. 9. Polling Question Compared with 12 months ago, how much more social media driven data are you using? – A lot more – A little bit more – About the same – Less – We don’t analyze social media data 9
  10. 10. And, once you reach consumers… The way they answer questions is different Fortunately in a somewhat systematic way… – By education – By cultural disposition – By how and in what ‘medium’ questions are asked Example of Raw Survey Score Interpretation From Around the World Definitely Would … Probably Would … Might or Might Not … Probably Would Not … Definitely Would Not … ... Buy 10% 12% 11% 8% Year End Penetration 10
  11. 11. Modality and Venue matter. Example: Online Intercept Pre- Pre- POP Panel recruit recruit IDI Group Middle of Beginning a Survey of a Survey 11
  12. 12. Polling Question In the past year, have you had to think through how to reconcile data from different sources (different countries, different data collection methods)? – Yes – No 12
  13. 13. Statistics are getting harder to apply to consumer data asan ‘arbiter of truth’ Do not call regulation and time-shifting Increasing reliance on social gathering places vs. controlled sampling Over-abundance of on-line survey ‘pop ups’ Nuance in data Interpretation 13
  14. 14. The dynamics of adoption have changed It is a period where the evolution of social interaction is rapidly outpacing the evolution of social science…moreso than historically 14
  15. 15. … which may explain this… Top Two Box % 16% 21% 18% 34% 26% 28% 21% 19% 33% 8%Purchase Intent 12% 8% 9% 6% 4% 5% 6% 3% 26% 20% 21% 15% 17% 17% 13% 13% 13% Nokia Amazon Apple HP Apple Palm LG Apple Dell Booklet Kindle TV Mini iPhone Pre Chocolate iPad Inspiron 3G 2 3Gs 11z Definitely Would Buy Probably Would Buy Failed Succeeded 15
  16. 16. So what does all this mean? mar·ket·ing re·search: noun mär-kə-tiŋ rē-sərch The process of gathering, analyzing and interpreting information about a market, about a product or service to be offered for sale in that market, and about the past, present and potential customers for the product or service …but, now, in a smaller world with more access challenges, rapidly proliferating data sources, and disparate data biases …’Truth’ is getting harder to come by via data analysis – and marketing research data are hard to understand 16
  17. 17. Bottom Line…. 17
  18. 18. The New Rules – 7 of Them(maybe not all 7 for today…the sky is not falling….but rules for ‘soon’…)
  19. 19. 1) Developing Market Best Practices Are Global Best Practice vs GREATER GLOBAL MORE FOUNDATIONAL CONNECTION RESEARCH RELATIVELY MORE IN PERSON METHODOLOGIES AND DOING ‘MORE WITH LESS’ 19

  21. 21. 3) Journalism Skills Must Be Embraced By Market Intelligence 1) Opportunism: ‘scooping’ the competition (and getting engaged eyeballs!!) 2) The principles of the discipline 21
  22. 22. Getting the Scoop Because there is significantly more social interaction, there are more useful scoops (consumer insights) to be found at any moment… But it requires more might than is typically exerted in marketing intel: Journalism Textbook: Getting scoops requires a great deal of effort, and a very large support team. Many papers station journalists all over the world in the hopes of getting scoops on unexpected major stories, and they supplement these journalists with stringers who sell content to the highest bidder. Having foreign correspondents in place is a crucial part of running a successful major paper, and many news outlets dedicate a large chunk of their budget to maintaining such correspondents, along with their contacts. 22

  27. 27. 4) A Key Research Function Is Making ‘Decoder Rings’ DIFFERENT COUNTRIES DISPARATE DATA SOURCES Because all data are biased, a precondition to uncovering insights is fixing biases. DISPARATE BIASES 27
