  19. 19. 8a. The Role of Market Research <ul><li>Market research is used to gather the opinions, beliefs, and feelings of potential customers. </li></ul><ul><li>It serves to identify the NEEDS and WANTS of customers. </li></ul><ul><li>There are two major categories of market research : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ad hoc market research : focuses on specific marketing problems or issues. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Continuous research : takes place on a regular ongoing basis. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The Role of Market Research : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>gives business up-to-date information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>see if current products meet the needs of the customers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to improve a firm’s marketing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>assesses potential customer reactions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>provides information about the competition </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>gives an idea of the future; future trends </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Market research is usually carried out when a firm launches a new product. </li></ul><ul><li>Effective market research helps reduce risks of failure. </li></ul><ul><li>Drawbacks of market research : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Garbage in, garbage out (GIGO): unreliable or inaccurate data generates poor quality information. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Biased information can be unreliable. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Costs of good market research is very high. </li></ul></ul>
  20. 20. 8b. Primary Research <ul><li>Primary research is new data gathered from first-hand sources. </li></ul><ul><li>Also know as field research, information directly collected from customers to identify their buying patterns and changes in behaviour. </li></ul><ul><li>What are the several methods of conducting primary research? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Questionnaires : </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Self-completed questionnaires </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Personal questionnaires </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Postal questionnaires </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Telephone questionnaires </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Good questionnaires avoid bias, avoid jargon, include closed and open-ended questions. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Observations : watching how people behave and respond to different situations. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Experimentation : introduces marketing activities to a group of people to measure their responses and reactions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Online surveys : using email or software programs </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. 8c. Advantages & Disadvantages of Primary Research Advantages Disadvantages up to date time consuming relevance costly confidential and unique validity objectivity
  22. 22. 8d. Secondary Research <ul><li>Secondary research is also known as desk research, which involves collecting second hand data and information. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This means that the data has been gathered by others. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tends to be cheaper and faster to collect. </li></ul></ul>Advantages Disadvantages cheaper & faster to collect maybe out of date huge range of sources info may be inappropriate provides insight into trends widely available to the competition
  23. 23. 8e. Qualitative Research <ul><li>Market research can also be classified as qualitative or quantitative . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Qualitative market research involves getting non-numerical answers and opinions from respondents. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Used mostly in primary research. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>main purpose is to understand the behaviour, attitudes, and perceptions of customers. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Two main types of qualitative research: focus groups and in-depth interviews . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus groups : </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>involve small discussion groups who share similar customer profile. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>main goal is to get everyone to generate insightful information. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a drawback may be that only extroverts tend to take part in these groups. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>another limitation is that participants want to get paid, so it can be costly. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>another variation is called consumer panel . </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>small group within a business’s target market and are specialists rather than random people. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  24. 24. 8f. Qualitative Research <ul><li>The second type of qualitative market research is in-depth interviews. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>involve an interviewer and a customer having a one-on-one interview to find out more about the customer’s personal situation and opinions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>can be conducted face-to-face or over the phone. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>these interviews can also include a range of non-quantifiable information, which prove to be difficult to analyze. </li></ul></ul>Advantages Disadvantages better exploring the motivators and the de-motivators of customers information used does not represent the whole population can be rich in depth can be time consuming can be inexpensive need interview expertise respondents not under any pressure interviewer can be bias
  25. 25. 8g. Quantitative Research <ul><li>This research relies on a much larger sampling base. </li></ul><ul><li>It requires the gathering of factual and measurable data rather than people’s opinions. </li></ul><ul><li>Will involve the use of surveys and questionnaires to gather such data. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Closed question - allow respondents to choose from a given list of options. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ranking or sliding scales - rank your favourite soft drink; strongly agree to strongly disagree. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Can also supply data such as market share, sales figures, and changes in consumer income. </li></ul><ul><li>Advantages for using this research is it is easier to analyze, but this method is not as flexible as using qualitative methods, as questions are all fixed. </li></ul>

  31. 31. 10b. Targeting Advantages of Niche Marketing Disadvantage of Niche Marketing better marketing focus very small markets less competition small market size = no economies of scale become highly specialized highly successful markets may attract new competition
  32. 32. 10c.
