People around the world want more money, more things and more information. And in the past, it was believed that to get more, you need to do more – work more, research more, produce more and reach more. But what if you get the desired result only by doing the right thing not more? What if, instead of wasting time and efforts on activities that don’t yield quality results, you could concentrate on what really matters? What if you could get outcomes faster? ‘Agile Market Research‘ is a tactical approach that attempts to address the need caused by the changing trends and consumer preferences by providing continuous analysis and modification of business practices in real-time. It replaces historically formulaic and time-taking market research methods with techniques that are ‘agile’ to identify pitfalls and bridge gaps in an organization’s performance to drive favorable results and improve ROI.
By Adopting Agile Market Research, You Achieve:
- Reduced time waste: Research and development happen in tandem
- Reduced resource waste: The product development team is utilized from the outset
- Reduced risk: Iterative customer feedback helps you keep development on a customer-centric track reducing the risk of product failure or losing customers.
Let’s discuss the ways agile market research drive growth and innovation for businesses.
Market Research Automation Makes you Faster and More Productive
The tedious tasks which researchers used to perform in the past can now disappear from their desktop at the click of a button. Project scoping, getting a price quote, feasibility checks, or launching of a project to a global survey panel – modern automated research and survey tools can do all of these for you faster and more effectively.
AI Makes your Business Smarter
Not everyone knows how to do effective market research, especially how to do it right to get past the clutter and dig out the desired insights fast. And who wants to get trapped by complexity when gearing up to launch a market research survey? AI helps democratize some of the most complex tasks involved in the process of market research. Thereby enabling businesses to derive powerful insights while strengthening their decision-making.
New Products Serve Specific Use Cases
Seasoned researchers understand that some methodologies are quite straightforward to reproduce once you know the nuts and bolts. A concept test stays unchanged no matter whether you are testing a new product or a brand logo. The same applies to other market research use cases such as ad effectiveness, brand tracking, net promoter score or customer satisfaction. You can scale your research efforts through case-specific agile research tools which remove tons of friction from the user experience.
