Saqui Research

FAQ

How much do you charge?

The answer is as individual as each company because our services are customized to each client’s specific needs. To answer simple questions, we may need to just “skim the surface” and do an assessment or survey. However, if your organization needs more “deep diving,” we can create a plan of action that breaks the project into steps, enabling you to maintain your budget.

 

How do I know what services I need?

At Saqui Research, we partner with you to assess your needs and suggest the services that will help you find the answers your organization needs. Let us know where you’re trying to go and we’ll provide the information you need to get there.

 

Funds are tight. Why should I spend money on research?

Often spending money on research ends up saving your organization money. Uncovering answers to questions like “Why aren’t my sales increasing?” or “What makes me different from my competitors?” can lead to recommendations that will create new opportunities. That said, we won’t see you on a “fishing expedition” for data that we don’t think will ultimately have a positive impact on your bottom line.

 

What types of organizations do you work with?

Our clients are diverse organizations, but they seem to share some common traits: They look to outside experts so they can focus on their own strengths, they appreciate collaborating with specialists like us, and they are generally competitive – seeking to be the best in their fields. They are seeking a clear picture of the marketplace and their performance; not only affirmations, but also challenges.

 

How long does research take?

The time it takes depends on the information you need. We will provide a detailed timeline before we begin so that you know what to expect every step of the way.

 

I don’t currently collect any data. Now what?

We start from wherever you are. However, some clients are surprised when we’re able to use information that they do have in new ways. We can also help you to sort out which bits of information you should be capturing and how to find simple ways to do so.

 

What about after the project ends?

We believe that research is the beginning of new ideas; not the end. We continue to collaborate with our clients well after the reports are presented, even continuing to collaborate with the person or team that will put recommendations to work.

Do you hold memberships with any professional associations?

Yes. We belong to AEA (American Evaluation Association)
and the MRA (Marketing Research Association).
