Quadrant Analysis

quadrant analysis in market research

In Quadrant Analysis, Research America’s experts take consumer opinion about various features belonging to your product, and contrast them with your competitors’ product features. Statisticians plot the joint position of these two factors in a two-dimensional quadrant graph so that you can immediately see which important features are most liked and perform well, and where your product’s features don’t perform as well. Using Quadrant Analysis also reveals which less important features that rate highly vs. your competition, and where every company ranks poorly in consumer opinion.

Research America uses Quadrant Analysis in the analysis of market research surveys, customer surveys, and employee surveys to investigate gaps between your expectations and actual performance. Quadrant Analysis lets you know exactly where you stand in the market, and reveals areas that you can take advantage of through development.

How Quadrant Analysis Works

Research America consultants design studies that ask participants to rate the importance of several different categories, including:

While the categories may vary based on what is evaluated in any particular study, the process remains the same across all types of research. Analysts take the data and use software to plot the results in a chart that measures the rated importance with the actual brand performance.

Research America provides the tools leading to accurate data that uncovers exactly what you need to learn about what your customers want from your brand, products and services. Analytical tools will help you decide on which product attributes to focus on, and which advertising strategies will work in sync with your sales goals. Our consultants will help you during every phase of your marketing research program, including guiding you through interpreting what your data means, and the implications new information have for your business and marketing plans.
