Qualitative research

Using a range of advanced NLP-based methodologies, we can gain valuable in-depth understanding of an individual’s cognitive processes. These determine how your brand is perceived and what attitudes it is forming, good and bad. We can also discover the motivation behind attitudes and how this drives behaviour. The methodologies and techniques we use are constantly evolving, but typically include synaesthesia, mood boards, thematic apperception test, virtual and digital approaches. These can be used to address many types of research listed below.

• Concept testing
• Message testing
• Detail aid and story flow testing
• Exploratory market understanding
• Market segmentation
• Brand positioning
• Product profile testing
• Brand perception

Business analysis
We have an in-house team of business analysts who specialise in patient-based forecasting, market simulation (what-if scenario modelling), benchmarking and bespoke business analysis projects tailored to meet your needs.
