Many times as a market research firm, we work in a collaborative effort with other B2B consulting firms in a multidisciplinary partnership to address the needs of the client. Research is not only what we do well but our only focus, and many projects require design or branding, public relations, or advertising expertise. That’s why we work within strategic partnerships with other firms to solve, at times, the most challenging or complex problems the client faces.
Why are strategic partnerships important? In our opinion, the client deserves only the best of the many disciplines needed and, most times, it is challenging to find the all the best skill sets within one consulting or marketing firm.
In the end, it all comes down to building the best team! Here are a few firms we’ve worked with on previous projects and highly recommend as well!
