Steps in the Marketing Research Process:

Ch 2 5 Steps in the Marketing Research Process Steps 1 Establish Need 2 Define Problem 3 Research Objectives 4 Determine Design 5 Identify Information Sources 6 Decide Data Collection Method 7 Design Questionnaire 8 Determine Sample Plan & Size 9 Collect Data 10 Analyze Data 11 Write and Present Report Figure out what to research (Chapters 2 & 4) Design the way to do the research (Chapters 5-13) Gather data from respondents (Chapter 14) Generate findings and interpret them (Chapters 15-20)

The Marketing Research Process:

Ch 2 6 The Marketing Research Process An 11-step process: there is nothing Not all studies use all 11 steps Few studies follow the steps in order magic about 11 steps

Step 1: Establish the Need for Marketing Research:

Ch 2 7 Step 1: Establish the Need for Marketing Research Is there a real need for marketing research? Research takes time and costs money. Marketing research is not always needed.

Step 1: Establish the Need for Marketing Research:

Ch 2 8 Step 1: Establish the Need for Marketing Research When is marketing research not needed? The information is already available. Decisions must be made now. We can’t afford research. Costs outweigh the value of marketing research.

Step 2: Define the Problem:

Ch 2 9 Step 2: Define the Problem This is the most important of the 11 steps. If the problem is incorrectly defined, all else is wasted effort. Problems may be either specific or general.

Step 2: Define the Problem:

Ch 2 10 Step 2: Define the Problem Problems stem from gaps between what is supposed to happen and what did happen and gaps between what did happen and what could be happening.

Step 3: Establish Objectives:

Ch 2 11 Step 3: Establish Objectives Research objectives, when achieved, provide the information necessary to solve the problem identified in step 2. Research objectives state what the researchers must do.

Step Four: Determine Research Design:

Ch 2 12 Step Four: Determine Research Design Exploratory Research: collecting information in an unstructured and informal manner. Descriptive Research refers to a set of methods and procedures describing marketing variables. Causal Research (experiments): allows isolation of causes and effects.

Step 5: Identify Information Types and Sources:

Ch 2 13 Step 5: Identify Information Types and Sources Primary information: information collected specifically for the problem at hand Secondary information: information already collected

Step 6: Determine Methods of Accessing Data:

Ch 2 14 Step 6: Determine Methods of Accessing Data Secondary data is relatively easy to access; primary data is more complex. Three main choices for primary data: Have a person ask questions Use computer assisted or direct questioning Allow respondents to answer questions themselves without computer assistance

Step 7: Design Data Collection Forms:

Ch 2 15 Step 7: Design Data Collection Forms Questionnaire must be worded objectively, clearly, and without bias in order to communicate with respondents. Software programs are available to assist marketing researchers in preparing forms.

Step 8: Determine Sample Plan and Size:

Ch 2 16 Step 8: Determine Sample Plan and Size Sample plan refers to the process used to select units from the population to be included in the sample. Sample size refers to determining how many elements of the population should be included in the sample.

Step 9: Collect Data:

Ch 2 17 Step 9: Collect Data Data collection is very important because, regardless of the data analysis methods used, data analysis cannot fix bad data. Nonsampling errors may occur during data collection.

Step 9: Collect Data:

Ch 2 18 Step 9: Collect Data Data collection errors may be attributed to field workers or respondents. Researchers must know the sources of these errors and the controls to minimize them.

Step 10: Analyze Data:

Ch 2 19 Step 10: Analyze Data Data analysis involves entering data into computer files, inspecting data for errors, and running tabulations and various statistical tests. Data cleaning is a process by which raw data are checked to verify that the data have been correctly inputted from the data collection form to the computer software program.

Step 11: Prepare and Present the Final Research Report:

Ch 2 20 Step 11: Prepare and Present the Final Research Report The last step is one of the most important phases of marketing research. Its importance cannot be overstated because it is the report, or its presentation, that properly communicates the results to the client.
