Presentation on theme: "CORPORATE PROFILE THE DYNAMICS - RESEARCH CONSULTANTS."— Presentation transcript:


2 Introduction – The Dynamics The Society we live in, and the Businesses, the Markets and the Consumers there-in, are all interdependent entities. The dynamics of the Consumer attitude and behavior contributes in shaping the Markets and vice versa; the dynamics of the markets is a major factor in defining the Businesses being organized and run to serve these Markets and the dynamics of these Businesses have their impact on the Society in which these exist and operate. Conversely, the Social dynamics of the place we live in, have an imposing impact on the Businesses being run there-in. Similarly, the dynamics of these Businesses shape the Markets these Businesses are serving and the Markets in turn have a great influence on the attitude and behavior of the Consumers these Markets feed / cater for. 2

3 As such, the dynamics of any of these four entities cannot be studied and understood in isolation, as these are interrelated and interdependent entities. At The Dynamics – Research Consultants, we study and chart out these dynamics and their impacts on each other. While studying in depth each entity in its own right, we try to find out the interdependencies and interrelationships of these four entities and their workings to get at the big picture. The Technology: We are living in an era of digital revolution which has touched and reshaped our lives at all levels and has resulted in several paradigm shifts. We at The Dynamics – Research Consultants, use the latest state of the art technologies to collect information and analyze the same from different perspectives. Hence we have also set up the first Online Consumer Panel in the country. 3 Introduction – The Dynamics

6 Types of Research Studies We design and conduct various types of studies, depending on the categories of users / consumers and the types of products / services being marketed. Few of the Research Studies we undertake are briefly mentioned in the following slides. 1.Market Size & Share Study: To find out the size and geographical spread of market in value and volume terms, major importers / suppliers, manufacturers / marketers, package and price ranges, distribution channels, users / consumer groups etc along-with regulatory environment and major players in the market and their shares. 2. Knowledge, Attitude & Practices Study: At category level, finding out the level of knowledge / awareness, attitude / opinion and behavior and practices of the purchasers / influencers / users / consumers, mainly about the category [and its competing, complementary and supplementary products] in addition to pertinent demographic and psychographic information about the users and non users of the category. Similar study conducted at brand level is called Usage & Attitude Study. 6

7 Types of Research Studies – Contd 3. Brand Studies: These include the Brand Health Monitor, covering brands awareness, brands and their ad recall, sources of awareness / recall, brands usage (ever used, used in last season, currently used), brands competitive images, differentiators and motivators, brands positioning, brands availability, sources of purchase, value for money, and demographic and psychographic profile of users of different brands. Similarly Brand Satisfaction / Dissatisfaction and Brand Loyalty Studies are undertaken by us. 4. Similarly, Concept test, Product Test [CLT / HUT], Segmentation Study and Pricing Study are also conducted for competing brands. 5. Distribution Study: It covers the market structure study, covering different channels of distribution, awareness level of channel operators, penetration, availability / breadth and depth of distribution, margins, frequency of visits / replenishment, policies and procedures of suppliers etc and satisfaction / dissatisfaction with suppliers. 7

8 Types of Research Studies – Contd 6. Media Studies: Media research starts with searching for the appropriate platform / theme for the brand, followed by Copy testing, Off-air ad testing, Campaign effectiveness, Media Consumption Habits, etc. 7. Mystery Shopping: To assess the total Customer Experience and monitor the performance of Retail Outlet Operators, researchers visit the Outlets in the garb of customers and record their total experience of interaction with the retailers and noting down the physical ambience of the outlet. Likewise Observational Studies are also conducted to note down the placement of the brand in the shelves, behavior of the buyers / customers etc. 8. Focus Groups / In-depth Interviews: To peep below the skin of consumers, and to understand why they are saying what they are saying, we conduct Qualitative Research by way of focus group discussions and in- depth interviews. 8

9 Types of Research Studies – Contd 9. Oomnibus Survey: We have designed a multi-client survey for clients who do not want to opt for a full scale study. We use our Online Research Panel for collection of responses. As such the results are of high quality, obtained very quickly [within a week or so], and at very affordable charges. We host this omni bus survey every month so the impact of marketing interventions by the marketer himself or his competitors can be measured within a very short time and marketing strategies can be tweaked accordingly. 10. Ad Testing Module: For off-air ad testing, we have designed a ad testing module using our Online Research Panel. The consumers see the clutter of ad, with the test ad, embedded in a TV program, sitting in their own homes [real life scenario]. After they have seen the ad / clutter, some pertinent questions are asked about the test ad to determine its overall likeability, interest, recall of central theme and other copy points, salience, memorability, clarity, empathy, impact on the brand image / purchase intent, etc. The results are then indexed for a go –no go decision. 9

25 The Ideal Profile – for Targeting via Panel The internet penetration is around 17% on overall basis in Pakistan having more than 30 million internet users. The penetration reaches to more than 50% when we think of people with high literacy rate living in Metros. The online research panel is ideal for gauging opinion from the following profiles: Gender: Male & Female SEC: A, B & C Education: Matric & Above Age bracket: 18 years – 50 years Cities: Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi & Islamabad *Special groups like Students [18+] can effectively be targeted using the On Line Panel as more than 50% of them in the major cities are internet users. 25

26 Does Each MR Study Need Representativeness? Any MR study, not necessarily requiring 100% representative data, can effectively be conducted through the On Line Consumer Panel, to get benefit of reduced time and cost along with accessing the hard to reach respondents. Both Quantitative and Qualitative data can be gauged using the panel. Sample replication (quota based sampling) is the technique to get as close results as representative sample can provide using the online consumer panel. From a panel of about 10,000+ members, one can draw a robust random sample of respondents of appropriate profile. 26

27 Where Online Panel Can Help Better? Study types that can be better targeted through On Line Research Panel 27
