We’ve been doing qualitative research for over 20 years..
We begin by understanding you:
Your objectives and constraints
Your competitive circumstances
We then suggest the most appropriate approach:
Group discussion – large or small
In-depth discussions short or long
Even a quantitative solution if it’s more appropriate!
We have experience of most qualitative techniques including; psycho drama, hypnosis and brand modelling that involves plasticine:
It comes down to experience
What we do and how we do it depends on what you aims are
We are not trying to invent new techniques or indulge ourselves, they may not always be fashionable but:
We work online to build forums and discussions
Mobile discussions and interviews for shopping related issues
We exploit technology when it contributes not because we can….
Julian set up Expressions to provide a real need for a disciplined and professional approach to qualitative research.
Julian had a blue chip marketing apprenticeship working for Cadburys learning basic marketing and research skills as well as company constraints and product issues. He followed his interest in advertising and spent six years working in three top 20 London agencies before starting Expressions where he used the combined experience to provide a new dimension to qualitative research, drawing on agency experience to develop brand planning.
He has been a full member of the MRS for 20 years and a member of the AQR.
Some projects need more man or woman power:
Due to deadlines
Size and scope
Because you can’t be in two places at once
When the task demands more people, Julian will team up with experienced colleagues chosen for their suitability to the project.
If you would care to discuss any research issue whether or not it may end up as a project please contact Julian today.
