Qualitative Research and Strategy
Tenaciously solving for why.
With a creative qualitative research approach, we will provide you with understanding and insight. Through the voice of the consumer, we help guide you and your brands.
Time is precious. Our focus groups and other qualitative methodologies are jam-packed. The research sessions have a lively pace so not a moment is wasted. Respondents have fun and engage.
Our goal is to glimpse inside consumers’ day to day lives, their hearts, and their heads. This leads to better understanding of what they want, what they believe, and why they do what they do. Understanding and respecting these behaviors and beliefs as they relate to your brand is the way to engage consumers to build brand affinity and resonace.
360 degree approach
Our goal is to provide you the very best qualitative consumer research and client service. Every study is custom designed in terms of methodology and participant grouping to best meet the research objectives. There are a wealth of creative techniques in our toolbox we use to draw out deep consumer insights and we are adept at developing new ones on the spot. We like to make our participants work a little harder for you and also have a little more fun.
We are experienced in a wide array of qualitative research methodologies (both in-person and virtual), leveraged independently or layered for a more holistic understanding of the consumer experience:
Traditional in-person focus groups

Virtual Interviews and Small Groups
Research Walk-Abouts (shop alongs, directed ethnographies)
"Fly-on-the-Wall" at home friend groups or family observation
In-home product usage
