Market research abroad

The world is your playground

Access to millions of consumers and hundreds of researchers 

The world is global, but research is often only done locally. In your own country you have a network and you have and know people around you who can help you with something. Abroad it becomes an issue. You may have even more need to explore the market internationally than locally. In your own country you are a consumer yourself, you speak to friends and family, you go to the store yourself, etc. Abroad you don’t. So you have to collect all your market insights. Only you don’t know the way. CG is happy to be your guide and organizer.

Do It Together with CG

  • You decide which part you outsource or do in-house. You can contact CG for only participants, but you can also outsource a complete study, including an analysis and reporting.

  • This can differ per project and even within a project you can ask CG to do more if it suits you better.

  • Depending on the expertise, budget and time you have available, we determine together how much CG you need.

What our customers ran into

“International research is very expensive.”

Often you can already do a part yourself. If you only want to speak to 10 Italians via a video call in English, you shouldn’t be with an international research network or even a local full service research agency. Too much overhead and too many links and it is not their core business. What you then need is a local CG. A party that recruits the right profile, provides the incentive and has the right person available online for you at the planned time.

“On who can I depend abroad?”

In many countries we have partners who know their local market. These are parties that CG has already worked with a lot and that have proven that they deliver what they promise. The interesting thing is that many of the freelancers with whom CG works are also employed by large research networks that present them as their own staff.

“The coordination with multiple countries consumes all my time.”

If you only want to conduct research in one country, you can coordinate this yourself, provided you know the right partners. Especially when it concerns different countries, this is time consuming. Then you want to put the hassle with CG and be able to focus on gaining insights.

What do our customers say about our international researches?

Voor een (nieuw) concept binnen onze bank wilden we kwalitatief onderzoek doen in Nederland, Duitsland en Frankrijk. De sessies moesten in 5 snelle, korte sprints gedaan worden. We zochten een partij die ons kon faciliteren met deze sprints.

We hebben verschillende partijen benaderd. De voorstellen lagen qua prijs en kwaliteit bij de meeste partijen op hetzelfde niveau.Wij hebben gekozen voor CG omdat zij in gesprek de meest entrepreneurial spirit toonden, een “wir schaffen es” mentaliteit. CG bleek dit tijdens het hele traject ook waar te maken.

Bij de sprints is het van belang dat je snel kunt schakelen en dat iedereen in het proces daar goed mee omgaat. Uiteraard zonder dat de kwaliteit onder druk komt te staan. De uitdaging was niet makkelijk. De doelgroep Private Bankers zijn lastig te werven en de moderators moesten echt specifieke kennis van finance hebben. Toch is CG er in geslaagd om ons goed te faciliteren in ons internationale project.

Het tweede project hebben we daarom nu ook opgestart.
