Strategic Marketing Intelligence

What We Do

We figure out how to sell your products, services and ideas more effectively.


Take the guesswork out of making important business decisions. Talk with a sample of your target audience and move forward with your results quickly, with confidence.

Focus Groups

Let other people tell you which key messages, ads, new product concepts, colors, music and other options will get them to buy from you. Listen to deep insights, in their own words.


View your data how you want it. Use custom-built tools to identify trends, insights and differences by subgroups from both single and multiple period surveys (view live demo).


Build inspiring strategic, marketing and other business plans. Improve productivity with presentation skills, technical presentation critiques and leadership communications training.

Who We Are

Without data, all you have is another opinion.


We are highly competent experts with vast category and segment experience—and a proven track record of results.

We use both quantitative and qualitative research to develop strategies, test messages, understand target markets, identify opportunities and overcome significant challenges.

By delivering what we promise, we have built long-standing relationships with our clients.

We pride ourselves on quick turnaround so that you can continually adapt to an ever changing market.

We give honest, sincere advice—even when it goes against our clients’ aspirations.
