■ WHY is your audience so big? 
■ HOW MANY from your audience are attracted to your media and how many – to the competitive media?

■ WHAT should be done to make the audience bigger?
■ HOW MANY people have noticed your ad campaign? In which media channels?
■ HOW effective has been your ad campaign?

specialized media and advertising market research projects will help you find the answers to these questions.

Research methods

The each special case needs appropriate research methodology – the way the research is done to find the answer to the question you are interested in or the solution of your problem. Quantitative or qualitative methods are used for each corresponding case.

The most often used quantitative methods are different types of interviews. They can be direct (face-to-face) computerized interviews at the respondent’s place (CAPI), postal interviews, computerized telephone interviews (CATI) or interviews with the help of internet (online interviews or CAWI). Usage of direct computerized interviews (CAPI) in case of necessity provides the possibility to use different visual materials – pictures, audio or video files, internet failes materials. Computerized telephone interviews (CATI) provide the possibility to get data quite quickly – if the situation is urgent it is possible to get operative information even in a week’s time.

In separate cases of mass media research qualitative methods can provide more useful information as they let you find out different views about the problem under research. Different qualitative research methods are offered to you – group discussions, tests, extended in-depth interviews.

Separate research methods are worked out just for research of mass media as a specific branch. They are pedestrian and transport flow measurements, as well as measurements of outdoor advertising effectiveness and supermarket television audience.
