Researching Your Campaign

The research will be carried out by our expert team to look at issues, background, market analysis, competitor analysis, relevant legislation, relevant global case studies and a range of other issues that will strengthen the campaign and spokespersons.

  • Focus groups: Our experienced moderators will design a programme that will ensure your focus groups are engaging and insightful to glean vital information from the discussions to leave with you detailed feedback and concise next steps.

  • Door to door surveys: Our surveying teams are engaging and motivated on the doorstep to ascertain feeling on local issues and gain support or highlight concern around specific planning applications.
  • Datasets: Take the guesswork out of a campaign by ensuring you have the right data at the beginning. We can provide you datasets for a range of different tasks within a campaign to make sure you are hitting the right audience directly. We can also conduct data harmonisation which allows us to merge a host of records from governmental, party and third party sources, helping you create a detailed map of the area you are working in.
