    18. 18. Market Research  Sampling Methods:  Random Samples – equal chance of anyone being picked  May select those not in the target group – indiscriminate  Sample sizes may need to be large to be representative  Can be very expensive
    19. 19. Market Research  Stratified or Segment Random Sampling  Samples on the basis of a representative strata or segment  Still random but more focussed  May give more relevant information  May be more cost effective
    20. 20. Market Research  Quota Sampling  Again – by segment  Not randomly selected  Specific number on each segment are interviewed, etc.  May not be fully representative  Cheaper method
    21. 21. Market Research  Cluster Sampling Primarily based on geographical areas or ‘clusters’ that can be seen as being representative of the whole population  Multi-Stage Sampling Sample selected from multi-stage sub-groups  Snowball Sampling Samples developed from contacts of existing customers – ‘word of mouth’ type approach!

    23. 23. Market Research  Primary Research Firsthand information Expensive to collect, analyse and evaluate Can be highly focussed and relevant Care needs to be taken with the approach and methodology to ensure accuracy Types of question – closed – limited information gained; open – useful information but difficult to analyse
    24. 24. Market Research  Quantitative and Qualitative Information:  Quantitative – based on numbers – 56% of 18 year olds drink alcohol at least four times a week - doesn’t tell you why, when, how  Qualitative – more detail – tells you why, when and how!
