RESEARCH DESIGN & METHODOLOGY MARKETING RESEARCH Marketing is the process of discovering and translating consumer needs and wants into products and service specification, creating demand for these products and services. It is the function which links the consumer, customer and public to the marketer. RESEARCH DESIGN
  10. 10. Despite the difficulty of establishing an entirely satisfactory classification system, it is helpful to classify marketing research projects on the basis of fundamental objectives of the research, consideration of the different types, their applicability, their strength and weakness. The two general type of research based on the basis of the fundamental objective of the research are:1. Exploratory Research Design 2. Conclusive Research Design Exploratory Research Exploratory research design seeks to discover new relationships between several facts. In well established field’s of study, hypothesis usually is drawn from ideas developed in previous research studies or is derived from theory. Research could be then used to determine if the hypothesis was correct. Too little is known, however about consumer reaction to marketing stimulate to permit the formulation of sound hypothesis in many specific situations. As a result, much marketing research is of exploratory in nature; emphasis is placed on finding hypothesis relative to new product’s or marketing practices that can be changed profitably. Conclusive Research:Conclusive Research provides information that helps the executives make a rational decision. The marketing executive has to arrive at a suitable decision from the various alternative decisions. In some instances particularly if an experiment is running, the research in many cases come close to specifying the precise alternative to choose; in other cases, especially with descriptive studies, the research will only partially clarify the situation, and much will be left to the executives judgment. Conclusive Research studies can be classified as either descriptive or experimental.
  11. 11. RESEARCH INSTRUMENT • Structured and Disguised Questionnaire The questionnaire is a standardized form for recording answers on the basis of set questions. The questions provided limited answers. • Sample size The sample size chosen should be 150. • Sampling Method Sampling Method is the process in which only a few units of population under study are considered for analysis. The sampling method was random sampling in which the respondents were given the questionnaire. The Questionnaire was framed in such a way to get continue response. And to achieve flexibility by asking certain open ended questions. The time constraints and various other factors were also kept in mind while framing the marketing research methodology. COMPARTIVE ANALYSIS DATA COLLECTION METHOD: Surveys have become so common in today’s world that the average person seldom questions the idea about the useful information that can be obtained in a particular manner. Various findings of one type or another are developed and are usually seen possible after the acceptance. QUESTIONNAIRE:
  12. 12. Questionnaire and observation are two basic methods of collecting data in marketing research. In questionnaire method a formal list of question is prepared in a sequence which is provided in printed forms to the respondents, for them to answer. ADVANTAGES OF QUESTIONNAIRE METHOD: • Versatility:- Probably the greatest advantage of the questionnaire method is its versatility. Almost every problem of marketing research can be approached from the questionnaire point. It is helpful for getting any desired data. • Speed and Cost:- Questionnaire is usually faster and cheaper than observing interviewee. It has moreover better gathering activities. As a result, less time is required in a questionnaire study. • Accuracy:- The data or information obtained by questionnaire method is accurate. TYPES OF QUESTIONNAIRE: a) b) c) d) Structured Disguised Structured Non-Disguised Non-Structured Disguised Non-Structured Non-Disguised SCOPE OF STUDY 1) Customer expectations are always ever increasing and the competition among various magazine companies. 2) Brands with good offers and reasonable price will service well in the market.
  13. 13. 3) The likes and dislikes of people are different, the companies should have different magazine to suit different needs and wants. 4) Prices and offers play an important role in the success of a product. 5) Majority of the people prefer effective offer of magazine. 6) Different offers made by “The Outlook Group” to attract the target audience. 7) Consumers become more aware of print media sector. LIMITATION 1. The Research study is confined to only limited area of Delhi 2. Data collection was not easy; during research we have seen grey faces and some respondents were not willing to fill the questionnaire.
  14. 14. 3. People do not co-operate with marketing executives and they don’t have free minutes to attend them. 4. Some people directly refused to co- operate and some gave biased and dishonest replies. 5. Time, Money and other Resources also acted as a barrier. 6. Questionnaire should be of single page only. 7. People were reluctant to give away personal details. BIBILIOGRAPHY • •
