Advertising Research

Market research and market intelligence play an important role before, throughout and following the life of a direct mail or advertising campaign.

There is much that market research can do to improve and to measure the effectiveness of promotions.

  • As the ad begins to take shape, we capture the reactions of the audience in order to refine the campaign and ensure it is completely ‘on message’.
  • And once the advertisement is released, we obtain further feedback as well as measuring awareness rates and effectiveness.
