The AFA market research company pursues its overall approach in the marketing research field by offering a wide range of field surveys, marketing tests and data collection methodologies. Our aspiration is to respond to all strategic and operational issues that may arise.
The list of market research studies that is currently mastered and ensured by our marketing research firm is not definitive. In fact, we try to enrich it by integrating other marketing researches.
Quantitative and qualitative data collection
We collect all kinds of qualitative and quantitative information, primary and secondary, internal (archive files, databases and old surveys) and external (general or specialized information centers, research offices) by field surveys, polls, observatories, panels, omnibus and barometers.
This data collection task is performed by our marketing research firm for our own needs (eg an ad hoc research commissioned by one of our customers) or on behalf of other polling company under subcontracting.
Customer loyalty and satisfaction surveys
To increase customer value and retention, it's recommended to carry out loyalty and customer satisfaction research in order to:
- Discover and analyze the sources and satisfaction/dissatisfaction indicators.
- Determine the proportion of customers who return and/or recommend the product.
- Quantify the satisfaction / dissatisfaction of clients on the dimensions of the product offering.
To study the variables of customers' satisfaction and loyalty, we offer several solutions:
- customer satisfaction survey
- CRM and loyalty study
- loyalty survey with the Net Promoter Score (NPS) indicator
Usage and attitudes studies (U & A)
We identify the consumers' behaviors and the attitudes that underlies them to feed the research and development department and be on the lookout for emerging trends and opportunities that can be seized.
Notoriety, image and brand positioning surveys
These researches and studies are designed to know how does the brand/company behave and how it stacks up against the competition, in order to find possible areas for improvement.
Strengthening the brand image always results in improved customer loyalty or even the possibility of increase product prices without negatively impacting sales volume (brand premium).

A marketing strategy is made for the long term and impacts the entire business life cycle. For this reason, it's recommended to conduct a strategic market research to clarify the way and thus build an effective plan.

Marketing mix studies
These surveys cover operational marketing and specifically the 4Ps:

A good marketing mix plan contributes to the success of the business strategy that targets the medium and long term.
Advertising tests and studies to optimize communication
These are surveys that we carry out before and after a communication campaign in order to optimize it prior its launch and to evaluate its impact after its broadcasting.
- advertising pre-test

This type of marketing testing is generally performed upstream of a launch to study the assessments of potential customers vis-à-vis a prototype, and thus measure the success likelihood of the final product.

The pursued aim by marketers is to find an optimal price that maximizes revenue and consistently fits into the overall marketing strategy. For this, we suggest surveys to help you find the right price and ultimately improve your pricing strategy.
