Why You Should Conduct Market Research Business with People, Not Companies

Posted by Michael Gruenberg

Oct 14, 2014 9:00:00 AM

There is a reason why people repeatedly return to the same restaurant. Is it the food? Clearly if the food is sub-par, then any establishment will soon be out of business since no one will return to an eating establishment for a lousy meal. But, given that the food that is served is good, one can then argue that there are probably many other restaurants located in the vicinity of our favorite eating place. Why would we repeatedly return to the same one? It’s the service! It’s the people who serve the food; it’s the manager of the restaurant who comes over and personally greets you. It’s the wait staff that serves you as though you were the most important person in the room. And, most of all, it's the high quality food served at a price we are willing to pay. That’s what brings us back, time and time again. And, those factors are what make you loyal to any business.
