  • 12. Market research: Market research is a form of business research and is generally divided into two categories: consumer market research and business-to-business (B2B) market research, which was previously known as industrial marketing research. Consumer marketing research studies the buying habits of individual people while business-to-business marketing research investigates the markets for products sold by one business to another. Consumer market research is a form of applied sociology that concentrates on understanding the behaviours, whims and preferences, of consumers in a market-based economy, and aims to understand the effects and comparative success of marketing campaigns. The field of consumer marketing research as a statistical science was pioneered by Arthur Nielsen with the founding of the ACNielsen Company in 1923 Thus marketing research is the systematic and objective identification, collection, analysis, and dissemination of information for the purpose of assisting management in decision making related to the identification and solution of problems and opportunities in marketing. The goal of marketing research is to identify and assess how changing elements of the marketing mix impacts customer behavior. Role of marketing research The task of marketing research is to provide management with relevant, accurate, reliable, valid, and current information. Competitive marketing 12
  • 13. environment and the ever-increasing costs attributed to poor decision making require that marketing research provide sound information. Sound decisions are not based on gut feeling, intuition, or even pure judgment. Marketing managers make numerous strategic and tactical decisions in the process of identifying and satisfying customer needs. They make decisions about potential opportunities, target market selection, market segmentation, planning and implementing marketing programs, marketing performance, and control. These decisions are complicated by interactions between the controllable marketing variables of product, pricing, promotion, and distribution. Further complications are added by uncontrollable environmental factors such as general economic conditions, technology, public policies and laws, political environment, competition, and social and cultural changes. Another factor in this mix is the complexity of consumers. Marketing research helps the marketing manager link the marketing variables with the environment and the consumers. It helps remove some of the uncertainty by providing relevant information about the marketing variables, environment, and consumers. In the absence of relevant information, consumers' response to marketing programs cannot be predicted reliably or accurately. Ongoing marketing research programs provide information on controllable and non-controllable factors and consumers; this information enhances the effectiveness of decisions made by marketing managers. Traditionally, marketing researchers were responsible for providing the relevant information and marketing decisions were made by the managers. 13
  • 14. However, the roles are changing and marketing researchers are becoming more involved in decision making, whereas marketing managers are becoming more involved with research. The role of marketing research in managerial decision making is explained further using the framework of the DECIDE model: D —- Define the marketing problem E —- Enumerate the controllable and uncontrollable decision factors C —- Collect relevant information I —- Identify the best alternative D —- Develop and implement a marketing plan E —- Evaluate the decision and the decision process The DECIDE model conceptualizes managerial decision making as a series of six steps. The decision process begins by precisely defining the problem or opportunity, along with the objectives and constraints. Next, the possible decision factors that make up the alternative courses of action (controllable factors) and uncertainties (uncontrollable factors) are enumerated. Then, relevant information on the alternatives and possible outcomes is collected. The next step is to select the best alternative based on chosen criteria or measures of success. Then a detailed plan to implement the alternative selected is developed and put into effect. Last, the outcome of the decision and the decision process itself are evaluated. 14
  • 15. Marketing research characteristics First, marketing research is systematic. Thus systematic planning is required at all the stages of the marketing research process. The procedures followed at each stage are methodologically sound, well documented, and, as much as possible, planned in advance. Marketing research uses the scientific method in that data are collected and analyzed to test prior notions or h hypotheses. Marketing research is objective. It attempts to provide accurate information that reflects a true state of affairs. It should be conducted impartially. While research is always influenced by the researcher's research philosophy, it should be free from the personal or political biases of the researcher or the management. Research which is motivated by personal or political gain involves a breach of professional standards. Such research is deliberately biased so as to result in predetermined findings. The motto of every researcher should be, "Find it and tell it like it is." The objective nature of marketing research underscores the importance of ethical considerations, which are discussed later in the chapter. Marketing research involves the identification, collection, analysis, and dissemination of information. Each phase of this process is important. We identify or define the marketing research problem or opportunity and then determine what information is needed to investigate it., and inferences are drawn. Finally, the findings, implications and recommendations are provided in a format that allows the information to be used for management decision making and to be acted upon directly. It should be emphasized that marketing research is conducted to assist management in decision making 15
  • 16. and is not: a means or an end in itself. The next section elaborates on this definition by classifying different types of marketing research. Comparison with other forms of business research Other forms of business research include: Market research is broader in scope and examines all aspects of a business environment. It asks questions about competitors, market structure, government regulations, economic trends, technological advances, and numerous other factors that make up the business environment (see environmental scanning). Sometimes the term refers more particularly to the financial analysis of companies, industries, or sectors. In this case, financial analysts usually carry out the research and provide the results to investment advisors and potential investors. Product research - This looks at what products can be produced with available technology, and what new product innovations near-future technology can develop (see new product development). Advertising research - is a specialized form of marketing research conducted to improve the efficacy of advertising. Copy testing, also known as "pre- 16
  • 17. testing," is a form of customized research that predicts in-market performance of an ad before it airs, by analyzing audience levels of attention, brand linkage, motivation, entertainment, and communication, as well as breaking down the ad’s flow of attention and flow of emotion. Pre- testing is also used on ads still in rough (ripomatic or animatic) form. About the company 17

  • 19. and market research companies of national and international repute. We have gained valuable insights into some of the leading international brands and continuously seek to improve our knowledge of markets with a view toward providing a unique and cutting-edge service to all of our existing and prospective clients. Market Probe began as a consulting company in 1976. Founded by T.R. Rao, a former University professor specializing in marketing and statistics, Market Probe began with projects focused on market feasibility studies, consumer research, image research and marketing effectiveness. By 1985, savvy businesses began to see greater value in customer satisfaction and quality studies. Market Probe responded with refined research methods, improved tools and proprietary software and modeling that generated the customized information our customers could use to be more successful. It didn’t take long for us to see the benefits of globalization. Today, Market Probe’s customer- and employee-satisfaction expertise reaches businesses around the globe. In addition to our corporate headquarters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, we operate CATI call centers in the United States, Canada, Singapore and the United Kingdom; we have full-service research offices in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Belgium, Dubai, India, Singapore and China; and we have formed several strategic partnerships with field agencies around the world. Market Probe is recognized as a leader in providing full-service strategic guidance and business solutions to our global client-base. Our mission is to help our clients 19
  • 20. achieve their business goals and protect their long-term assets: their customers, their employees and their brands. To accomplish this, we subscribe to a set of core values: • Maintain the integrity of the data • Protect the confidentiality of all client information • Aspire to the highest standards of intellectual honesty • Remain flexible to new ideas • Achieve the epitome of client service and self-improvement New Delhi: The US-based $15 million market research company, Market Probe Inc, which recently launched its operations formally in India, offers Indian companies value-added services in customer satisfaction and qualitative research. Founded in Milwaukee, USA, in 1976 by T R Rao, Market Probe Inc is a full service market research company specialising in customer satisfaction studies and qualitative research. It already has subsidiaries in Toronto, London, Hong Kong and Latin America. The company views India as an operating base for its expansion plans for South- East Asia. Says Rao, president and CEO Market Probe Inc: ``India has abundant talent and manpower both in terms of quality and quantity. We intend to exploit this to expand into countries like Thailand, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong. Indian experts will be used to train and supervise the setting up of operations there.'' Headquartered in Bangalore, Market Probe India has two branch offices in Delhi 20
  • 21. and Mumbai. The India operations are headed by R Muralidhar.Though it views Indian companies as also coming of age with regard to research needs and technology, the company will be mainly targeting MNCs in India, ``who understand and are ready to pay for value-added research.'' One of the reasons why Market Probe decided to enter the Indian market was the fact that many of its clients have global operations and research supplier decisions are becoming increasingly centralised and global in scope. Another reason was the fact that customer satisfaction, which forms a major chunk of Market Probe's business, is an emerging discipline in India and companies are beginning to shift from product orientation to customer orientation. ``With a growing number of brands in the marketplace, customer satisfaction, loyalty, retention and brand management are emerging as important areas and Indian businesses require specialised services that we can offer,'' says Rao. He adds, ``In the West, specially USA, customer satisfaction is recognised as an important area. The budget for customer satisfaction in the US is separate from marketing budget and is, in fact, the only recession-proof budget.'' Team leaders for the Indian operations have already undergone three-week training in the US on Market Probe's proprietary techniques. Some of its proprietary 21
  • 22. products include Satnav (satisfaction navigator) customer tracking and simulation software that allows `what if' analysis permitting testing across countries and customer retention forecasting system (CRFS), a sophisticated tracking tool to predict customer attrition and allow timely intervention programmes. In qualitative research it has special techniques like life maps, auto drive, interactive workshop method. With an initial investment of around Rs 2 crore for the first year, Market Probe India has already roped in clients like HLL, New Holland, Mastercard and Reckitt and Colman. It has also done some small projects for Maruti, besides product testing, advertising research, customer and product research. For MasterCard it is doing a pilot test for the global launch of a new product. 22

  • 27. Market Probe research firm expands in India By Rick Romell of the Journal Sentinel Posted: April 28, 2009 25 Wauwatosa's Market Probe Inc. has set up a separate firm in India employing about 200 people to do research in such areas as customer satisfaction and attitudes toward brands. The expansion, which has occurred over the last year, is another international venture for Market Probe, which also staffs offices in Europe, China, Singapore and Dubai. The company also has long maintained a small agency in India. It established the new firm, called MP Global Link India, to do surveys and mystery-shopper-style legwork for other companies with a presence there. "The and they . . . Indian market and the Chinese markets are exploding really don't have the ability to collect data in India," said T.R. Rao, Market Probe's founder, president and CEO. A mathematics scholar and former professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Rao is a native of India. MP Global Link India has headquarters in Mumbai and covers the entire country. The firm conducts research in all of India's major languages through face-to-face
  • 28. interviews, by telephone and over the Internet. It expects to carry out more than 900,000 interviews and mystery-shopper-type visits this year. Market Probe itself employs about 230 people, including 60 in Wauwatosa. 26 Beyond the new venture in India, the firm plans to expand its presence in the Middle East soon. Within a few weeks, it expects to open an office in Bahrain. Bahrain is unusual in the region for allowing 100% U.S. ownership of businesses, Rao said, and it is close to Saudi Arabia. "We are really interested in tapping into the Saudi Arabian market," he said Approach Market Probe's core competency in customer satisfaction and loyalty research offers clients a more practical approach to understanding what drives employee performance. We apply the same tools and models to interpret employee feedback as we do with the analysis and interpretation of customer satisfaction.

  • 38. data about customers, competitors and market places. The main purpose of market research is to explore more information about market and customer trends in order to make better business decisions” The Objectives of Market Research  To link the consumer with the company through information.   To investigate the real needs and requirements of customers.   To search for and analyse information that can be used for arriving at the  best alternative marketing decision.   To suggest necessary changes in the goods and services in order to meet the  market demands.   To know in advance what kind of target markets exist in the economy where  the company may launch its product.   To know about the reactions of the people in the market about the existing or newly introduced products of the company.  To identify opportunities and threats in the external environment of the company. To find out reasons for slowly losing market share, and identify ways and means for strengthening company's position in the market, within and outside the country. Importance of market research  It facilitates planned production by forecasting probable sales.   It helps in identifying the reasons for consumer resistance to existing or new  products.   It reveals the nature of demand for the product i.e. whether the product is in  demand through out the year or has a seasonal demand.   It indicates the product utility as well as the effectiveness of existing channels of distribution.   It may reveal certain new uses for the existing products.   36
  • 39.  It provides information about potential or future markets. It helps in the discovery of new lines of production Stages or Steps in market research process  Identification and definition of the objectives :- This is the first step in the process of marketing research. It is of crucial importance as it shows the direction of the research work. The research process begins by making a clear and concise statement of a problem or issues to be investigated. A clear definition of the problem helps the researcher in all subsequent research efforts including the setting up of proper research objectives,the determination of the techniques to be used,and the extent of information to be collected.  Statement of research objectives :- In the next step,the researcher makes a formal statement of the research objectives and states the reasons and aims for which the research is being undertaken. Such objectives may be stated in qualitative or quantitative terms and are expressed in the form of research questions,statement or hypothesis.  Planning the research design :- The next step is developing research design which is a master plan 37
  • 40. specifying the procedures for collecting and analysing the needed information. It represents a framework for the research plan of action.The objective of the study are included in the research design to ensure that data collected are relevant to the objectives. The researcher also determines the sources of information needed; the data collection method such as survey,interview,etc; the methodology, timing and possible costs of research.  Planning the sample :- Sampling involves procedures whereby a small number of items or parts of the 'targetted population' is taken to represent the whole population. It involves several important decisions relating to :- (i) defining the target population; (ii) selection of a sample which truly represents the population; (iii) the sample-size to be used for the purpose; and (iv) selection of various units to make up the sample.  Data collection :- It involves gathering of facts to be used in solving the problem. Data is primary, if it is collected from the original base through empirical research by means of various tools such as observation, experiment and survey methods. It may be collected from salesmen, customers and dealers. Data is secondary, if it is collected from concerned reports, magazines and other periodicals, especially written articles, government publications, books, etc. 38
  • 41. The data sources may be internal or external. Internal sources exist within the firm itself like accounting data, salesmen's reports, etc while, sources outside the firm are external sources.  Data processing and analysis :- The data collected is processed and analysed. It is thus converted into a meaningful format so as to suggest answers to the initially identified and defined problems. Data processing begins with the editing or inspection of data for checking consistency in its classification and coding. The analysis of data represents the application of logic to the understanding of the data collected. It may involve determination of consistent patterns and summarizing of appropriate details by using various analytical techniques. The aim of this step is to check whether empirical findings support or refute the statements or hypothesis made earlier.  Formulating conclusions and preparing the report :- The final stage is that of interpreting the information and drawing conclusion for use in making business decisions. The research report should clearly and effectively communicate the research findings. If needed, the researcher may bring out his appropriate recommendations or suggestions in the matter. The presentation of the report so prepared must be technically accurate and understandable. 39

Sources of data Data Collection - Phone • Telephone Interviewing Stations (London, Toronto, U.S. and Singapore) • • 500 plus CATI stations worldwide • • Complex quota system management • • Predictive dialer • • Efficient survey modifications • • On-line status updates/analysis • • Calling disposition reports • • Real time “Problem Alerts” generated by interviewer • • “Silent Key” off-site monitoring • • Multi-lingual interviewers Data Collection - Face to Face • CAPI in Europe • • Face-to-face interviews throughout China, India and Latin America Data Collection - Mail • Global mailings in different languages • • Field coordination services Data Collection - Internet • Programming of surveys • 40
  • 43. • Data capture in secure servers • • Data access and reporting online • • Multi-lingual surveys Data Collection - IVR • Interactive Voice Response • Inbound and Outbound • Listening Posts These are some of the areas where MPGL is different from other data collection organizations in India Design the research methodology Research methodology provides the framework to collect and analyze data. The different research designs will help the researcher to relate the research problem appropriately. There are three kinds of research designs : • • Exploratory research • • Descriptive research • • Causal research The major parts of the research methodology are: • Research method Primary and Secondary • • Sampling plan • • Questionnaire design • Field work • 41
  • 44. • Analysis Secondary research Secondary research is a source of information widely available in the published data sources, newspapers, journals, periodicals, reports and Internet. The main disadvantage of this secondary research is unable to validate the reliability of the data. Primary research Primary research involves the collection of information with the research projects on hand from the reliable sources such as customers, suppliers, clients etc. The main disadvantage would be very expensive to collect primary data and advantages would be timely, focused in nature. There are different methods of collecting primary data such as : • Observation • • Experiments • • Surveys • • Consumer panels Tabulation and analysis Based on the collected data from the questionnaires, tabulation and analysis would be done to reveal the findings and recommendations for the research study undertaken by the company. There are basically two kinds of analyses in the market research study namely • • Simple tabulation • 42 • Cross tabulation
  • 45. Report writing and presentation After the tabulation and analysis is completed, the next step is to prepare a presentation of the major findings and recommendations of the research study to the clients. A formal research report presentation comprises of the following heads: • Executive summary • • Table of contents • • Introduction • • Research objectives • • Research methodology • • Sample design • • Field work • • Analysis • • Questionnaire design • • Analysis • • Findings • • Limitations • • Recommendations and action plan Based on the research report, the clients will initiate suitable marketing actions and this is the only expected income of any research study. 42 Research methods There are different research methods including:

  • 48. Interviewers on Company Rolls We recognize that using the interviewers who are employees and not freelancers has the following advantages: • They work for MP Global Link only, which facilitates training and compliance on company processes and policies. • • They are more committed as there is job security, which helps promote loyalty to our organization. The above factors contribute to the superior quality data MP Global Link India delivers to our clients. There are hardly any agencies in India who have started recruiting interviewers on a retainership. To that extent, we are pioneers in India. Localized Online Data Entry The quality of data not only depends on the data collection process but also depends on how we complete the actual entry of the data. MPGL has its online data entry team in all of the 45 locations in India, where we have our offices. The advantages of online data entry are as follows: • We have immediate access to the data, which cuts delivery time • • We save the questionnaire transit time and loss involved with couriering • • 48
  • 49. • We can identify fieldwork problems at the time of data entry and rectify them much faster and earlier than with a conventional system Emerging technologies – Market research Online research: In recent years, online marketing research is very popular among the consumers and the research companies. Using email or through website, they will give responses to the questions asked. The main advantages of doing research on the Internet would be • Interactive approach in which customers has the ability to design their products or packaging on their own imagination • • Response speed will be very fast • • Analysis and report making could be done at the earliest using statistical software available in the market The main disadvantages would be the privacy and security issues on the data stored and represented. Methods of online research: There are three methods of doing online surveys: • Email surveys • • HTML surveys • • Interactive surveys Email surveys: Email surveys are one of the fastest and easiest methods among other online survey methods. Questionnaires are attached via email for getting speedy responses from the target audience. 49
  • 50. HTML surveys: The complex questionnaires are framed using programming language with graphics and sound options in it. To create these kind of surveys processing time will be higher and the same been sent via email to the target audience for proper responses to be collected. Interactive surveys: The survey questionnaires are programmed and sent to the customer’s email for responses. This can be easily downloadable in the customer’s PC for answering those questions been sent to them. The cost of programming and processing time are really at a higher scale. In general, sampling would be the Herculean task in conducting online surveys. All the Internet users would be the target audience for conducting research studies. Non –Internet users won’t be representing the sampling at all. Qualitative surveys also possible on the Internet in the form of voice chatting that look like focus group discussions. A web camera would be the best possible solution to capture facial and emotional responses of the target audience. Data Warehousing and Data Mining : Data Warehousing and Data Mining are the emerging technologies in the marketing research space. Data warehousing and data mining will capture huge volumes of data on a regular basis from different sources and been stored for analysis in a virtual warehouse for future course of action. Few examples are as follows: 50
  • 51. • Credit card companies • • Banking and Financial Institutions • • Retailing companies • • Cellular service providers etc., The data stored in the virtual warehouse will be used to support business decisions and marketing actions such as promotions, bonus, rewards, gift vouchers, loyalty programs, referral business etc., All these data will be used as a part of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) initiatives of the company in the future. Few techniques been used to analyze the data mined from warehouses such as • Correlation analysis • • Factor analysis • • ANOVA (Analysis of variance) • • Discriminant analysis • • Cluster analysis • • Regression analysis etc., The above analysis would be performed using high-end statistical software such as SPSS, Minitab, SAS etc., to predict customer’s preferences and behavioral patterns. Data Quality To control data quality and consistency, Market Probe supports our projects with our in-house field capabilities. We have our own service centers in North America, 51
  • 52. Europe, Middle East, India and China and can offer field services in different native languages.

We meet the requirements set forth by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act for dealing with confidentiality of client lists in the financial services sector as well as HIPPA guidelines for healthcare services 52
  • 53. A BRIEF UNDERSTANDING OF CATI (COMPUTER ASSISTED TELEPHONIC INTERVIEW) 53
  • 54. A better understanding of CATI CENTRE MP GLOBAL LINK “It’s a leading Market Research in India.” 54
  • 55. But why does a Company conducts a Market survey?  To know the level of performance of the particular brand.  To check out the level of satisfaction of their customers.  To know merits and demerits of the particular products and services. Objectives of the Market Research  Assess health of customer relationships and as well as transactions for CLIENTS.  Assess levels of delight and dissat for key process areas  To assess circle performance on key processes  Understand reasons behind customer dissatisfaction and delight  Determine relative impact of each process in affecting customer loyalty  Compute a Customer Delight Index score for each circle  Deploy findings for effective implementation. So let us know how we do it! 55
  • 56. We have plenty of projects and there are group of people who handle different projects of MP GLOBAL LINK What is CATI? Computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) is a telephone surveying technique in which the interviewer follows a script provided by a software application. The software is able to customize the flow of the questionnaire based on the answers provided, as well as information already known about the participant. CATI may function in the following manner A computerized questionnaire is administered to respondents over the telephone. The interviewer sits in front of a computer screen Upon command, the computer dials the telephone number to be called. When contact is made, the interviewer reads the questions posed on the computer screen and records the respondent's answers directly into the computer. Interim and update reports can be compiled instantaneously, as the data are being collected. CATI software has built-in logic, which also enhances data accuracy So we do SUBSCRIBER SATISFACTION INTERVIEWS to check out what is the RELATION and as well as TRANSACTIONS of customer of their respective services provider. So it’s not a CALL CENTRE not a BPO and it’s not even a DSA IT’S a CATI CENTRE and our job is to do the SUBSCRIBER SATIS FACTION INTERVIEWS

  • 77. 77 Studies of research :- As after conducting a number of interviews between Hyundai customers through CATI . I came to find out that the customers are very much satisfied by the quality of vehicle they produce that is all it’s various models such as Santro, Verna , i10 ,Getz ,Accent etc. Hyndai Santro is the most sold car of the company and it has been the base of the success of the company in India. One another vehicle of the company is having a brief control over the
  • 78. market these days and that is Hyndai i10, this car has been one of the most successful cars of the company in recent times. As most of the customers of the company are from higher middle class group so as there cars has been there dream to them so they responded in very well manner but some of the customers who were basically having a problem with any kind of promises made by the company and haven’t been fulfilled were very upset and due to which they do not responded to the survey in a proper way. As the findings of the research I could say that the company is doing very good business in India and having a very high rate of growth chances in this region as there technology in the small cars have been the best in comparisons with there competitors like Maruti, Tata etc. 78 LEARNINGS It has been really learning experience while doing this research project on behalf of Hyundai , here I came to know about the various applications to be utilized to face a customer. It is such a time when customers acts like god to the producers, and by doing this
  • 79. eventful and prestigious project I understood about what importance a customer actually has for the top companies ,also what is the value of there feedback to the company.For such a kind of response to the customers I have been really the fan of Hyundai as they use to respond very quickly to the customers complaints and feedbacks. 79 SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMEDATIONS As after having a two months project on customer satisfaction for Hyundai motors india ltd. I could say that the companies product Hyundai Verna is having a little bitt problems with the brakes and the rim of the front tiers are a little bit longer due to which thetyres are wasted very soon , due to which most of the customers feels very rusty in this case so this is a cause of concern. Therefore , the companies technical teams should work on this problem and find out a solution as soon as possible . The other important finding of the research is that the customers are very much atisfied by the companies product but they do not feel happy about the servicing facilities available to
  • 80. them at the service stations . Most of people are unsatisfied due to improper behavior of the servicing incharge,service centre owners behavior,or the staffs,or the time taken to service the vehicle,even some people think that whatever the money they have been charged for servicing are very high . Therefore in my point of views the company should improve it’s customer relationship management functions and also a proper instruction should be given to the servicing centre managers about there misconducts and they should be warned in such a way so that tey mey not repeat the same mistajke again. As the company would be very much beneficial of the research work we had completed during (april – june ,2009). This would help the company in further making the strategies of the company. 80 Bibliography Books : Marketing Management book by Sir Philip Kotler GJU course book of Marketing management Consumer Behaviour book by Sir Del I Hawkin Advertisement and Sales promotion by Sir S H H Kazmi Internet : www.mpglinkasia.com www.marketprobe.com
