Celebrating 20 years of research you can act on
Numbers look impressive. But without the right information, expert analysis, and real solutions — there’s a disconnect. At Market Connections, we do more than gather data for you. Based on solid research, we’ve been delivering sound recommendations to improve your business — and ultimately, your bottom line — for the past 20 years.
We’re in Business to Help Your Business Flourish
Our philosophy is simple. First and foremost, we see ourselves as business people helping business people. After that, we view ourselves as research experts and statisticians. Building strong client relationships is the cornerstone of our business. Our goal is to connect you with your markets and customers — and to connect your research and analysis with your organization’s bottom-line results.
Research Saves You Time and Money
You don’t want to risk making critical moves, such as introducing a new product or marketing strategy, without concrete research to reinforce your decisions. So, the earlier in your planning process you come to us, the better it will be for you. With the right information at the right time, your research investment should pay off handsomely with measurable, actionable results.
After all, your situation is unique. So we devote sufficient upfront time to discuss your needs, learning and absorbing as much as possible — quickly — about your organization. Then, we carefully design a fresh, innovative, cost-effective research program to meet your specific goals, deadlines and budget.
Turning Research into Strategies for Success
Once your research has been conducted, we do far more than just hand you the numbers. We give you results you can act on. Based on our in-depth analysis, we provide realistic, proactive recommendations for adjusting your corporate positioning, marketing strategy or tactics, or even your products and services.
Then, we’ll conduct briefings with top management, consult with other key leaders in your organization, work with a process team — whatever it takes to help you implement your business strategy as successfully as possible.
