We provide interim resources to deliver a project. Your existing team is not diverted from their normal goals and you do not need to hire new staff until you have an established success.
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.
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.
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. We expect to be the ones to use it to deliver the results.
The next step is usually appointment setting. To do this, we use an experienced Business to Business telephone contact centre with whom we have worked for many years.
We can attend the appointments on your behalf or we can set up arrangements for you, including perhaps preliminary telelconferences. Beyond this point, the course of the project becomes less predictiable as it depends on the industry, the companies involved, locations and so on. Generally there is a sampling phase. Certification may be required. We can help with all of these.
