A Career in Market Research

Posted on March 16, 2018 in Uncategorized

Market research offers a wide array of job profile from which you can make your selection. In essence, the market research wing of any company plays a pivotal role in helping the company make profits through selling their products. This department collects facts, analyzes them, and compiles the findings into a report which also contains suggestions about the possible steps that the company needs to take in order to sell its products.

Market research careers are high paying jobs and have been identified to be job spheres that hold much promise of growth. While an average employee earns around 61k annually, few of the best professionals working in this department for the top notch companies rake in over 100k a year.

Now if this little trivia has got you interested in market research jobs, then allow me to elaborate on the conditions that you need to fulfill in order to bag a job. Not only do you need a bachelor’s degree in marketing, you need to have other qualities as well. Depending on your attributes, you are sorted in to different working units within the market research department.

To understand market research career profiles, you need to understand the types of job posts available in this wing:

• Market Research Manager- If you have good supervisory ability and can do justice to the authority that has been put in your hands, you are a definite manager material. All you need to do is to ensure that the subordinate staff are doing their bit and compiling the report on time. If the department runs slow and fails to turn in their key findings on time, a company is rendered paralyzed for without the feedback from this wing they will be unable to market the product.

• Market Research Executive/ Analyst- These people play an important role within the wing itself. Not only do they chalk out the course of action plan that this wing is going to undertake in order to file the report, but they also play a hefty role in analyzing the facts collected by others working in this department.

People who are market research analysts or executives need to have a critical reasoning faculty apart from the ability to analyze and deduce results from a set of given facts. These are also the employees who work non-stop in identifying the key findings of the primary research work and in filing a strategy based advice report. Since this report is mostly presented in front of the company executives, people working in this unit cannot possibly suffer from public speaking phobia. Finally they also need to have a good grasp over the language, for it is their way of presenting the facts in paper that will earn them brownie points.

• Market Research Worker/ Interviewer- These are the people who are credited with carrying out the work at grass root level. From designing online polls and questionnaire to conducting face to face interview in order to feel the pulse of the market and collect data; they are the nuts and bolts that hold the department together.

Now that you have a fair bit of idea about market research job profiles, I am sure you will be able to get a clearer picture and judge for yourself, if this is the right job sphere for you or not!

1. Ostomy Software will help you make an intelligent choice.

o It is often the case that, after surgery, new ostomates are given only a few products from the hospital to keep them going until they find a supplier. These are usually products from only one particular manufacturer and from only one product line. They are “general products”, designed to fit vast majority of patients and not suited to patient’s type of ostomy, body shape, skin sensitivity and preference. Many new ostomates are left with the impression that, this is the only choice they have. The products hospitals give away are often products given to them by sales representatives and usually represent one single brand.

o There are literally thousands of ostomy products on the market. Most of the retailers selling ostomy supplies do not specialize in ostomy and often have little or no information on various manufacturers, product lines, features etc.

Ostomy Software is here to fill this gap! In an easy and accurate manner it provides the user with profound product knowledge and opportunity to test a large variety of products from various manufacturers and product lines. Ostomy products can vary in brand, type, shape, size, colour, material, opening, filtering and body attachment system. Ostomy Software explores all of these options and lets you choose the unique products to best suit your personal preferences.

2. Ostomy Software lets you choose your appliances from the convenience of your own home.

If you feel uneasy discussing your personal needs or problems with a pharmacist, home health care professional or a customer service representative, Ostomy Software is the perfect tool for you. It will save you time, money, energy and potentially embarrassing moments.

3. Ostomy Software has a powerful engine designed to do the entire research and matching work for you. It is extremely easy to use.

Ostomy software will ask you questions before determining the correct product(s). It will then give you the manufacturer’s product code(s) and show a picture of the product(s).

4. Ostomy Software gives you the option to choose from among the many product lines offered by Hollister, ConvaTec and Coloplast.

If you currently use or intend to use the products of one manufacturer, the software will suggest and give you the product numbers for comparable products from other manufacturers, which you might want to try as well. This way you can call your retailer and ask for samples.

6. Ostomy Software will keep you up to date with the latest on the market.

We offer to all our customers regular software updates and upgrades. This way we keep you current with the latest products, product trends and developments.


Choosing a Niche Product to Dropship

Posted on February 20, 2018 in Uncategorized

Time and time again I recommend that you choose a niche product to dropship from your website or sell on eBay. But how do you choose your niche? The following are brainstorming tips to help you come up with a niche product that can be sold online.

First: Check Your Purchases. Many prospective online entrepreneurs try to think of really out-there products like unicycles or bamboo knitting needles so they can enter a market that isn’t too saturated. This is a good idea in some respects, but one of the most important factors when choosing a product is to choose something that people actually buy online. One way to brainstorm this type of product is to think what you yourself buy online.

In the past month, I’ve bought three second-hand novels written by Mildred Walker, a pair of studded motorcycle boots, a Hebrew-printed t-shirt, tickets to a murder mystery play, a pair of Cubs swim trunks, and a calligraphy set. Not surprisingly, almost all of my purchases represent niche markets. Why is that? Because with the exception of a few broad categories like electronics, most items bought online are niche products. This is because common, general products can easily be purchased at physical locations close to your home. You go online to find unusual items that can’t be bought at the mall.

Second: Check Logistics. Let’s assume that I want to dropship my products, not purchase them wholesale. This means that some of the products I purchased last month are out of the running for my niche inspiration. Used books aren’t generally dropshipped, and neither are theater tickets. Shoes and clothing are usually sold wholesale, but in this case the items that I bought might still be appropriate since they weren’t common apparel and accessories. The studded motorcycle boots might be a good candidate for a dropship niche product for a few reasons: first, they are a product that’s not easily found in local stores. I bought those boots online because after searching the three malls in my area I couldn’t find anything quirky enough to satisfy my Sarah Connor Chronicles obsession.

The studded motorcycle boots are a good pick for another reason: they’re a theme product that I could easily build a whole product line around. With the boots as my central product, I could have a goth/punk/emo website, a motorcycle apparel site, or a studded leather accessories site. Finally, while I might not be able to find this product through a dropship supplier, they are expensive enough that I could possibly use a wholesaler to dropship them. Let’s say my wholesale supplier has a $100 order minimum: if a single pair of studded boots costs $125, I can likely have single pairs shipped directly to my customers even though the supplier is ostensibly a wholesaler.
