Overview

A Dispatch from the Frontlines of Marketing Research!

Packed with the hottest trends, insights, and advances in the field, this trim guide to market research presents a snapshot of the way marketing research is practiced today!

  • This book is based on the author’s successful Marketing Research: The Impact of the internet, 5/e offering the same real-world, user-oriented focus, cutting-edge coverage, and highly-engaging writing style in a more streamlined format.
  • The authors bring a combined 40 years of marketing research experience to this edition: Roger Gates is president of a marketing research firm with over 100 full-time employees and Carl McDaniel is chairman of the marketing department at the University of Texas at Arlington.
  • The book discusses some of the ways the internet is affecting marketing research, balanced with more traditional material.
  • New Chapter-Opening Vignettes spotlight real companies such as The National Cattleman’s Beef Association, Wal-Mart, Fast Company magazine, Bose Corporation, and LaQuinta Inns.
  • New Marketing Research War Stories about the trials and tribulations of conducting marketing research engage the reader’s attention and help them recall important concepts in the text.

  • Real-World Orientation. Throughout the text, Cases, Chapter-Opening Vignettes, Marketing Research War Stories, and Ethical Dilemmas connect the materials to the real world of marketing research, as it's practiced in today's top firms.
  • Written from the frontlines of marketing research. Both authors bring a combined 40 years of marketing research experience to the new edition. Roger Gates is president of a marketing research firm with over 100 full-time employees. Carl McDaniel is a former partner in a successful marketing research company, and is chairman of the marketing department at the University of Texas at Arlington.
  • Focus on the research user. The Fourth Edition continues to present marketing research through the eyes of a manager using, or purchasing marketing research information.
  • Internet Coverage. By 2005 half of all marketing research monies will be spent on Internet research. The new edition reflects this trend throughout the text in detailed coverage of how the Internet is used to conduct marketing research.
