But look before you leap
Our emphasis is on doing the work rather than providing an analysis but we don't forget market research. Action without thought can be unproductive. The research component is as vital as implementation. Marching into strange territory without reconnaissance can be a fatal error. So can failure to implement the results of the reconnaissance.
We conduct desk analysis in house to avoid such problems. Our researchers work on the Russian language internet from Russian geographical locations. Paper is still very important in Russia. Much important information is not available on the internet, so we also use paper based publications for analysis.
Small field research projects are conducted in house. For large, All Russia field research projects we work with an associate company which has a very substantial network of market researchers across the whole of Russia. The network is substantial in depth of facilities as well as geographical coverage. For example, it includes offices fitted with focus group recording rooms in 12 cities across Russia. Again, the network has the resources to monitor advertising on local television and radio outlets across Russia.
When you are dealing with us, we usually expect to work on the follow through project so the market research will be focused and relevant. There comes a point when setting out to do the task becomes the best form of research but rushing straight to action also has its drawbacks. We recommend a short research study before any new project. Often a day's work is enough.
