Manufacturing Market Research Insights

Whatever your company makes, it is rarely in control of how it is sold by retail partners. TrendSource understands that mutual trust governs these relationships, but market research is what keeps them thriving. Manufacturers not only must monitor how their goods are sold in-field, but also develop an understanding of their customer journey, and in many cases build out their own direct-to-customer infrastructure.

In order to accomplish these goals, manufacturers should consider the following methodologies:

  • Retail Audits to ensure retailers meet their contractual obligations with manufacturers
  • ShopAlongs and Panel Surveys to understand their customer journey
  • Mystery Shopping to understand how a typical customer experiences their retail partners’ operations
  • Many More

Combining multiple methodologies gives companies unique windows into how their customers experience, engage, and educate themselves about their products, and where in the customer journey they can intercede to increase market share.
