How much will a research project cost?

We understand the value of a dollar, and so do our clients. That’s why we tell you up front what the costs of meeting your organizational needs will be and what return you’ll get on that investment.

Three basic elements affect the cost of research: What is the number of questions or problems to which you need answers? How is the information you need best retrieved? How can the information be best communicated to you and other members of your organization?

Once we know what you need, we’ll provide you with a research plan that will outline step-by- step the process, rationale, methodology, timelines and budget.

We will not sell you what you do not need—guaranteed. If you ask us to do a primary research market assessment in an area where sufficient reliable and accurate data already exist, we’ll point you in the right direction, no charge. On the other hand, if you present us with a budget or timeline that’s incompatible with your needs, we’ll tell you that too.

“Katherine understands what the marketing challenges are in growing a small business and what’s important. She will not simply take on a project; she interviews the firm’s management, does some basic research and then advises on the direction the firm should take with its market research. Often this is not the direction they were thinking, and this guidance is of critical value.” – Bob Golding, Industrial Technology Advisor at National Research Council – Industrial Research Assistance Program
