Consumer research is based on consumer habits and uses, attitudes, retention, and new product acceptance. Consumer habits and uses surveys are directed at understanding usage situations. Looking at consumer habits, uses, etc., is vital to understanding the consumer. Once you are able to understand the consumer, you can improve marketing strategies, increase visibility and boost sales.
General consumer research survey measures include frequency of product use, situation use, experiential use, and use satisfaction. New product market acceptance analysis measures include product specification, elimination of unacceptable features and levels, evaluation of feature level acceptability, and feature importance and validation with full profile choice sets. General measures of a consumer retention survey include trust, loyalty, and retention measures.
The best practice or main objective of consumer attitudes and expectations studies is to understand how the current product meets customer expectations and what attitudes customers have formed about the product and/or company. Best practices in consumer research include customer retention, which reflects the state of mind that customers have about a company and its products or services when their expectations have been met or exceeded. Conjoint analysis studies are implemented primarily from the estimation of demand for new products.
