Research (Competitor & Customers)

Research. The fast lane to better results.

We’re ready to help you get into the minds of your customers and prospects so that you can communicate with them in ways that are relevant, insightful and that motivate them to action.

Don’t assume anything. Knowing exactly how someone feels about your brand, product or service and how they interact with it gives you the power to shape those feelings, positively effect outcomes and invest with confidence.

Increased sales, greater brand awareness or wait for it — “buzz” — are not easily achieved without first doing the homework. At TMM, we have the experience and expertise to guide your brand and/or project through a research initiative focused on yielding genuine and actionable insights.

Who are my customers? Where do they live?

Do customers prefer to buy my products in-store or online?

Where do we fit into people’s consideration set?

How do people feel about our brand as compared to the competition, and why?

What is the lifetime value of my customer?

Believe it or not, research can be a thrilling adventure, and we are looking forward to taking it with you. Buckle up.

“I just wanted to say The Marketing Machine team is outstanding. Everything TMM has done for us has been top notch, Fortune 500 level. It would be hard to tell we are a small team of 9 from the video, website, and core messaging you created for us. Thank you for an amazing collaborative experience.”

“The HPN Select staff here in Raleigh appreciates the amount of work that TMM have put into our business. I know we are all over the place sometimes, but from our perspective on Glenwood Ave we like the work that’s being done, and from where I sit… having been here 4 years now… We’ve never had anything that has come close to what we have now.”
