migraine-stop“Persuadable Research played an instrumental role in helping to inform our marketing strategy. We were venturing into a new category and needed to understand the fundamental challenges faced by marketers in the space. Their comprehensive approach to our AA&U study gave us clear direction in three critical areas.

  • First, they gave us a deeper understanding of the consumers’ experiences and expectations in managing the condition. And as a result, they identified our core target audience for this new product.
  • Second, they identified the optimal positioning for the product based on the consumers’ preferences.
  • Most importantly, they uncovered supporting evidence which indicated that the optimal positioning would allow us to go with a higher price point than we originally thought.

As a result, Persuadable Research armed us with valuable insights which helped us craft a winning marketing strategy for our new product.”
