Description

Executive Summary:

Marketing is involved in a lot of big decisions, many of them involving risk: whether to enter a new market, how to respond to competitive pressure, if a new product launch makes sense or what services to offer. Ideally, these decisions are driven by data, and quite often that data is the product of research. Marketing research can help mitigate risk, and while research conclusions themselves don’t make decisions, decision-makers value having research to guide them.

The marketing organization is often responsible for conducting the research that influences many of these decisions. Housing this responsibility in the marketing organization seems logical given the nature of the decisions the research influences. However, “marketing” and “marketing research” are not interchangeable functions. While they are related, even a brilliant marketing team isn’t necessarily equipped to properly conduct marketing research. There’s simply too much at stake for marketing to lead research efforts and draw conclusions based on flawed methods and faulty assumptions. This is not to say that the marketing organization can’t conduct marketing research effectively, but does it do so?

In a study sponsored by SurveyGizmo, Demand Metric partnered with the Marketing Research Association (MRA) to provide a unique view of marketing research from two perspectives. The first is from the perspective of the marketing community – CMOs, vice-presidents of marketing, directors of marketing and their teams that have marketing research on their list of responsibilities. The second view comes from corporate marketing researchers who are members of the MRA whose focus and specialty is marketing research.

As this report will reveal, there are differences in how these two groups approach conducting marketing research. By comparing and contrasting the focus, methods, tools, importance and capabilities between these groups, marketers will have data and parameters to help them become more effective marketing researchers.
