UP LAB: Market Analysis & research

Understanding is key

UP starts all major marketing, branding, advertising, digital and creative service projects with a deep understanding of your customers, competitors and marketplace.  This covers both quantitative and qualitative research and can range from desk and digital research to online surveys, telephone interviews and focus groups.

We have a vast experience with market research and can undertake original research if needed.  We don’t forget the importance of internal research either. Most often we find the key to igniting a campaign, brand or organization is to be found internally.

As part of our Audit Phase (using our BASE-UP program) we will often run an internal Start Me UP workshop session. UP has many years of experience running these sessions on every continent for clients ranging from small start ups to the likes of Microsoft and GE. Better understanding and insight is the beginning of any good creative or marketing plan.

Introducing UP LAB

Market research and analysis services

Market research has historically been disconnected from advertising and brand strategy. Most market research agencies are separate from advertising and branding companies and often this transition creates a fracture in the end message. We created UP LAB which is a venture founded and run by scientists and marketers who believe a company’s insight should be directly connected to its brand messaging.

Market research is truly the beginning of the marketing process; a process that is constantly evolving with the brand. Our connection to medical professionals, scientists and everyday consumers brings incredible value to our process.

With our fully integrated and scientific approach to market research, we can develop a strategy that perfectly fits your branding, communication and digital ambitions. Importantly, as your brand evolves, our approach evolves too. Right from the start, the methods we use and the questions we ask are designed with every aspect of your strategy in mind.
