What We Do
Good quality research hinges upon recruiting the right respondents. We understand that survey panels have their limitations, and so have worked hard to build a strong social media presence that we can leverage to gain access to parents who would not normally take part in market research. This enables us to deliver you with cost-effective yet reliable and robust data that is more representative of your target audience.
We pride ourselves in understanding the markets we serve. With over a decade of experience analysing and conducting market research into the family, youth and baby markets, you can be assured that whatever your project requirements, we will have the flexibility and expertise to meet your needs.
At IOM, we look beyond the numbers. Drawing from the latest findings in behavioural economics and cognitive science, we incorporate a variety of consumer-centric approaches into our work that enables us to tell you what your customers are doing, and more importantly, why they are doing it.
