How to Get the Market Research You Need for the Price You Can Afford

Profound Market Research Solution, featured on blog.marketresearch.comMarket research is critical to the overall success of any organization. The trick is in finding a way to acquire the amount and depth of research your business needs in the most cost-effective manner. There are a number of ways to purchase market research, so, in order to increase ROI, organizations must determine which type of research solution best fits the frequency of their research requirements.

Finding a fit for your research needs

Every organization has different market research needs. Some need updated research on a weekly basis, while others only need it sporadically. For those with on-going requirements, there is no shortage of subscription research solutions that will allow a company to increase cost efficiency. However, what about those that need market research on a more irregular basis? Buying multiple syndicated research reports can be expensive, particularly the more in-depth the data you need is. Organizations in this situation need a more affordable solution to one-off purchases, allowing them to get a break on budget, without having to commit to a year-long subscription that exceeds their budget and usage needs.

Finding a research solution

Our Profound solution offers your organization the purchasing flexibility you need while still allowing them to stretch your research budget. Profound grants you access to a database of nearly one million research reports and allows you to search and purchase individual chapters, sections, tables and charts from them. Simply put, you only spend your research dollars on the pieces of information you need.

On average our Profound clients save $2,898.00 per purchase, and our Profound corporate clients experience even more savings.
