Market Research And Intelligence


Nathan Labs

Market Research:

  • Market research is the process of acquiring information about target consumers and demographics to help a firm, especially B2B market research companies and market intelligence firms, sell itself more successfully and, ultimately, succeed in the market. No matter whether a company is B2B or B2C, large or small, new or established, market research is an essential component of every business plan. By enabling businesses to base decisions on data, it gives them the information they need to take actions that will advance them rather than hold them back.
  • Most businesses are aware of what market research is and appreciate its value in general, but they might not realize how essential it is to their company's success. Market research, including primary research conducted by market intelligence companies and firms, is the solution when you need to recognize market trends, comprehend your primary client better, or accomplish a long list of other crucial objectives.
  • Primary research, especially when conducted by B2B market research companies, refers to the information that a business gathers itself or that a specialist gathers for it in order to do market research. It is, therefore, field research.
  • Using data that already exists and is available to you for market research is known as secondary research, a valuable resource for both B2B and B2C companies.

Types of Market Research:

  • Brand Analysis:- In order to leave a strong and positive impression on your target market, brand research is concerned with developing or improving your company's brand.
  • Marketing campaign study:- Some market studies concentrate especially on the success of marketing campaigns. You may assess the number of people who have viewed your web ads and the click-through rate.
  • Competitor research:- In order to learn how your business may outperform the competition, conduct competitor research.
  • Consumer research:- Your ability to appeal to your audience more successfully depends on how well you understand them.
  • New product research:- Prior to creating a product, market research is necessary to determine whether the idea is worthwhile, and the product should then be improved over time.

How to collect data?

  • Surveys:- Consumers who can respond fast to surveys are used.
  • Focus sessions :- Focus groups typically have fewer participants than a survey. Instead, a market researcher facilitates a conversation among a small group of customers to gain insight into their perspectives.
  • Interviews: Focus groups and interviews are similar, however interviews could have even fewer participants.
  • Observation:- Market observation involves studying customers to see how they act in real-world settings, like a retail establishment.

Why Market Research is important for any company?

A successful business starts with market research and continues with good management. It helps you stay aware of what your customers want and offers your company direction.

Market research can help determine:

  • whether a product or business idea is viable and whether you can expand into new markets, locations, industries, or economic effects
Additionally, you can use your findings to
  • launch a new company
  • Create or revise your marketing strategy.
  • evaluate the performance of your marketing strategy

Market Intelligence

  • Market intelligence (MI) consists of the collection and analysis of data regarding a company's market, including trends, competitor, and customer (targeted, lost, and existing) monitoring.
  • An organization's marketing skills and MI work together to establish a roadmap for allocating resources and putting systems in place. It is used to continuously provide strategic marketing planning for firms to assess marketing positions in order for businesses to obtain a competitive edge and most effectively accomplish objectives.
  • But, market intelligence and business intelligence are not the same. Market intelligence gathers information from outside sources, giving you a comprehensive perspective of the entire market rather than just your organisation, whereas business intelligence focuses mostly on internal elements like billing rates, headcount, processes, etc.
  • But, by integrating market intelligence with business intelligence procedures, a company would be able to get a comprehensive picture of its continuing performance in a given market environment.

Marketing Intelligence process

Step1: Data Collection

  • Several data collection methods like form-based surveys, in person interview, questionnaire, field trials, polls etc. will be used to collect relevant data from the target audience.

Step2: Analysis

  • Intelligence and information are not the same. Analysis of the obtained data is necessary to convert the data into useful intelligence. Market intelligence software comes in a variety of forms. Such software enables you to collect data as well as evaluate it using cutting-edge analytical techniques.

Step3: Reports

  • Pre Using market information involves several steps, including reports and presentations. Reports and appealing infographics can help a business better understand the markets and provide answers to queries like "What do the measurements mean?" This stage is crucial in the market intelligence process since improper interpretation of such data might be dangerous for the organisation.

Organizations have several chances to successfully traverse the intricacies of the marketing landscape that are particular to their firm thanks to marketing intelligence. Any marketing intelligence plan, when executed properly, has four components that assist marketers in making wise strategic decisions:

1.An edge over rivals

  • This type of marketing intelligence entails gathering information from rivals in order to glean insights that may be applied to more skillfully create corporate plans. Brands may more effectively focus marketing efforts to direct products and content towards the ideal consumers by understanding which people pick competitors and why.

2.Intelligence About Products

  • Product intelligence is conducting a thorough analysis of the brand's products and how they compete on the market. Organizations can gain a better understanding of the unique selling points and competitive advantages of their products by communicating with consumers, surveying target audiences, or otherwise including them in the process.

3.Marketing Knowledge

  • This type of marketing intelligence draws its information from an examination of the markets where customers or prospects are found.

4. Comprehension of the Client

  • Although while new sales are the focus of the majority of businesses, maintaining customer loyalty is just as crucial.
