Marketing Research Defined
Marketing research is “the function which links the consumer, customer and public to the marketer through information – information used to identify and define marketing opportunities and problems; generate, refine and evaluate marketing actions; monitor marketing performance; and improve understanding of marketing as a process.
Marketing research specifies the information required to address these issues; designs the method for collecting information; manages and implements the data collection process; analyzes the results; and communicates the findings and their implications” (American Marketing Association, quoted in Baines and Chansarker, Introducing Marketing Research, John Wiley, 2002: 4).
