2. CustomerCheckers: Understand Your Customers better through Market Research and Focus Groups
Increasing Customer Satisfaction, Purchases and Retention. Understanding customers is key. MarketCheckers’ proprietary techniques, combined with good old Focus Groups and other Market Research techniques help you to spot the early warning signs of reduced Customer Satisfaction, and guard against sales revenues disappearing!!!
Brand/Product Awareness, Perceptions, Opinions and Preferences: How many people really know what you do, or how well you do it? Is their understanding accurate? What exactly ARE their perceptions, and how can these be improved? Are you able to provide what your customers want most of all? We can help you capitalise on these aspects of your products and service
Purchase Intentions, Usage and Habits: Why do people choose the products and services that you provide in the first place? And how often? How do they prefer to buy? What can you do to make them more likely a.) to use whatever you supply and b.) to choose you as their supplier?
Customer Satisfaction, Attitudes, Expectations and Reputation: if you consistently meet or exceed people’s expectations, they will use you again, and they might also recommend you. Understanding what people expect is key to continued success.
What is it that will make Customers buy more often from you, and spend more…again and again?
Joined-up idea 1: Mystery Shopping and Customer Satisfaction Surveys (see 1. and 2. above) work very well together. Live feedback from your own real consumers and buyers in a Customer Satisfaction Survey will highlight key areas (both positive and negative) about your business. From a slightly different viewpoint, MarketCheckers’ UK-wide Mystery Customers are professional people (many of them are full-time mystery shoppers) who are paid to follow a specific customer scenario, and then write a report about it. Combined together, our results will enable you to compare performance across all outlets (or perhaps just selected ones) on specific issues in like-for-like situations, so your management can then take any necessary actions.
Joined-up idea 2: you can easily get some interesting and often unique publicity and online coverage out of, say, mystery shopping, research initiatives, sales promotions, price realignments, etc, which we are very well-placed to write for you.
