How to Gain a Strategic Advantage through Activity-Based Consumer Research
Experiencing an aha moment in market research is JOYFUL on a lot of levels. There’s personal growth that can come from seeing something in a new way. Learning a new skill. Feeling a little bit smarter. And a sense of victory…even triumph. It’s fun to share an aha moment with your brand insights team so they can also experience the moment.
But the biggest thing an aha moment gives your brand or business is revealing a strategic ADVANTAGE.
It’s easy to forget that gaining strategic advantage is WHY you’re doing all this work in the first place. It’s why you have a market research career; it’s why there’s an industry called ‘marketing research’ or ‘insights’ or even ‘brand management.’ In today’s environment, there are many new tools, toys, and technologies that make all sorts of promises based on speed, simplicity, data gathering, and analysis. As you’re evaluating them, my advice is to look through the lens of strategic advantage. How is this consumer research tool, toy, or technology going to help you discover an aha moment that will deliver a strategic advantage? And if that’s not clear to you, don’t try them.
At aha insights technology, we do this by combining the optimal activities with the most effective analytical tools and, most importantly, strategic advice. This combination gets you to aha and reveals your brand’s unique advantage.
