marketresearchNow, more than ever, clients have to work hard to defend their marketing budgets. Which means the days of clients trusting their gut (or just going with a creative director’s opinion) are long gone. Instead, marketers rely on market research and real data to inform the work they want to do. And since consumer attitudes change by the minute, brands need to stay on top of shifting sentiment at any given time. Brandtastic’s market research team can help you understand the intentions and behaviours of your audience in real time and translate those customer insights into compelling campaigns that delight your audience – as much as your chief financial officer.

Starting with the Consumer
Our job is to get into consumers’ hearts and minds to drive better customer experiences and client results. Using proprietary online market research tools, we examine the search language, emotions, barriers, facilitators, influencers and brand signals at each stage of the decision-making process. Then, we use customer insights to translate that data into experiential maps to help us understand the key drivers of interest that will create maximum value.


A Focus Group of Millions
When you think about it, search is the purest form of online market research. There’s no observer to affect the behaviour. Just the search box, the user and what they’re looking for. And we’re one of the only full-service digital marketing agencies that use search data to drive customer insights and results. Representing a focus group of millions, we use this data to develop linguistic profiles and personas that help us understand the language, intentions and motivations of your customers.
