Market research should be designed to help you and your business become more competitive and profitable. Here are some questions you might consider when designing your market research.

Qualitative research tries to uncover the reasons for behaviors, attitudes and motivations.

Marketing research can give a business a picture of what kinds of new products and services may bring a profit. When you conduct marketing research, you can use the results either to create a business and marketing plan or to measure the success of your current plan.

Marketing Analytics

Brand Marketing

A company’s brand represents their market identity—who they are, what they do, what kind of quality they provide, their reputation for trustworthiness, and more. Consequently, brand marketing is important to nearly every business.
Brand marketing influences the decisions of a variety of customers, including both end consumers and businesses. It is most effective for developing repeat business, as any customer’s perception of a brand is going to be largely informed by their previous experience(s) with that brand.

A brand strategy represents a promise to uphold particular values that could be quality, performance, responsiveness or integrity. It differentiates the company’s product or service from others and can result in customer preference, loyalty and price premiums.  
A brand is one of a business’ greatest assets and plays a major role in its financial performance. 


Games contain huge opportunities for business, from brand awareness to direct marketing. Everyone who plays games wants have fun. But after all the fun is had, what keeps the player coming back? How to drive players into an emotional state that will compel him to stay and even spend more time and money on the game.

Games are a very unique medium to work with, both in general and as an art form, because unlike almost every other form of expression, games are interactive. When making 3D art for games it is important to understand what the restrictions are, and how to work within them to create high-quality, usable art assets. Also, and even though the restrictions might not be as tight as they used to be, understanding what the restrictions are, and how they work, will help to work within game engines more effectively, and can allow you to create much more versatile assets.

Augmented Reality

Next to Virtual reality will Augmented reality find its place in this years app development.

Shear unrecognized at his first appearance in the 90’s it will experience a revival due to the enormous progress in mobile broadband. Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality.

Until 2020, the amount of digital data produced will be around 40 zettabytes.Which means that there will be around 5,200 GB of data for every person on Earth (source IDC).

The majority of data then will be produced by machines while exchanging informaion over data networks. which would include e.g. data from sensors or smart devices. For now only a small part of the data being produced has been explored for its value through data analytics. IDC Research estimates that by 2020, 33% of all data will contain information that might be valuable if analyzed. In a quote from a IDC report in April 2014 it is been said that from 2013 to 2020 the digital universe is going to grow by a factor of ten. From 4.4 trillion gigabytes it is today to 44 trillion. It more than doubles every two years.

Companies in the top third of their industry, in the use of data driven decision making, are on average 5% more productive and 6% more profitable than their competitors. McKinsey showed that a typical marketing budget could be cut by 15 to 20% and still not lose marketing ROI. So these are some big effects and big impacts that marketing analytics can have on firm performance.

In 2018, data will continue to take the center stage for all marketing activities.
