In addition to the research that we do as a part of producing full-length reference titles, we take on projects for clients wishing to find out about a particular market or industry. We normally do this work on an hourly basis but are open to bidding a project for which a well-defined objective can be determined in advance of the work.
Examples of the sorts of projects we’ve done include:
- Researching the office supply market and finding out the size of the U.S. market for clipboards, by type — for an entrepreneur preparing to launch a new product.
- Preparing a study of the market for wooden pallets in North America — for an international cement company.
- Doing an analysis of market share leaders within the industrialized world in each of six industries, auto manufacturing, aircraft manufacturing, general retailing, commercial airlines, banking, and non-cellular long distance phone service providers — for the lobbying arm of a Fortune 500 petroleum company.
