INTERNATIONAL MARKETING RESEARCH PROCESS
Secondary Data Collection
Issues in international research problem formulation:
· A major problem is the unfamiliarity with the foreign environment - lack of familiarity may lead to
false assumptions, poorly-defined research problems, and, ultimately misleading conclusions about
the foreign market
· To reduce part of the uncertainty, some exploratory research at the early stage of the research process
is often fruitful
· A useful vehicle for such preliminary research is an omnibus survey - conducted by research
agencies at regular intervals
Framework for international marketing research:
Determine research design:
­ Exploratory (informal, unstructured) - to gain background information, to define terms, to
clarify problems & hypothesis and to establish research priorities.
secondary data
·
experience survey
·
case analysis
·
focus groups
·
projecting techniques (asking participants to act in controlled/simulated conditions)
·

· provides answers to questions such as;
who
customer, competitor
­
what
product, brand, design, size
­
where

­
when

· one point in time - cross-sectional surveys, sample surveys.
