Custom research

Studies focused specifically on managing and developing brand equity, optimizing CRM, and supporting new product innovation.
Our research designs are informed by over three decades of deep experience developing research programs trusted by enterprises that require the most rigorous data analytics to validate mission-critical marketing decisions. From concept tests and discrete choice experiments to segmentation and equity studies, we do all of our research in-house, leveraging industry-leading data collection, sampling, and analysis platforms.

Brand and marketing strategy development for clients operating in STEM industries

Positioning and foundational brand platform development, brand architecture strategy, customer segmentation strategies, customer development programs, and pre and post-M&A brand evaluation.
Our clients are businesses and brands who rely on intangible assets (algorithms, molecules, reference designs, and other intellectual property) and operate in rapid-growth environments that require the senior-level experience critical for high-stakes, and often time-sensitive, strategy development.

Strategy Workshops

In addition to longer term engagements, we also help clients work through important marketing and branding challenges in structured half-day, full-day, and multi-day workshops.
All workshops include initial (or preliminary) research and discovery, workshop facilitation, and bespoke activities designed to engage clients in solving a discrete brand challenge.

The Conclusive team scales up or down depending upon the breadth and complexity of the engagement. The team includes senior strategists, content specialists, project management professionals, as well as experts from the academic community who infuse research designs and strategic deliverables with the latest models and findings from published and peer-reviewed research.
