As a research professional, you’re tasked with bringing your clients fresh, actionable insights about their consumers. But, how well do you know your own clients? And, have you ever invested in researching them in the same way you research their consumers?

This webinar shares highlights from the recently released “Corporate Research Buyers Speak” study and GreenBook’s client panels, including insights from the GRIT Report.

“Corporate Researchers Speak” is the first-ever qualitative “deep dive” into how marketing-research buyers decide which suppliers to engage, how they like to be “sold,” and how to address their unmet needs. The study was funded by 10 research firms through Collaborata, a market-research cost-sharing platform (www.collaborata.com).

This webinar shares highlights from the study, including mapping clients’ path to purchase, providing practical and timely guidance on how to successfully sell into new client companies and how to nurture and grow existing relationships in today’s ultra-competitive environment.

You will see what corporate-research buyers really want from you in engaging with them -- how to best reach and sell them the first time, how to meet their shifting needs, and how to maintain and grow the relationship by becoming a valued partner.

GreenBook, who supported this groundbreaking study, will co-present with David Harris, the lead researcher of “Corporate Research Buyers Speak,” adding their perspective based on findings from the GRIT report and many panel client panel discussions over the past few years.
