Market Strategies International

Brand Research

Every brand aspires to connect with customers in a tangible, emotional way that results in a lifelong bond.

To the victors go the spoils of loyalty, up-sell, cross-sell and referrals. But cultivating stable, long-term relationships takes intelligent brand market research and careful planning.

As your brand cycles through phases, its strength and success are based on the ability to remain relevant by continuously evolving to meet customer needs while remaining true to a core value proposition. Market Strategies International helps you understand the current value of your branding strategy and plot a course to reinforce its core strengths and address vulnerabilities and threats.

Challenging Questions

Whether you need to build a strategic framework, evaluate the ROI of competing scenarios or implement tactics, our industry-leading market research, brand research, and marketing message research strategies can help you answer these questions:

  • Analysis

    What benefits do customers want from a brand in your category? What is unique about your competitor's brands, and how can you use that information to your advantage? Are customers aware of your brand, and is it positioned properly to meet their needs? What are your brand's potential points of vulnerability?
  • Outcome and Growth

    How do the tangible and emotional aspects of your brand support each other, and how are they linked to your business outcomes? Can you extend your brand into new product lines and markets through further product development research?
