A reliable and rigorous methodology
We have voluntarily theorised and taught our market research method in France and Belgium, in particular, to would-be entrepreneurs through the various structures supporting entrepreneurship (see an example here).
Our method is divided into 7 phases and can be adapted to address a variery of different problems, such as :
- product creation through Design Thinking
- product improvement through customer needs analysis
- improvement of satisfaction and loyalty
- redesign of a marketing and differentiation strategy
- customer experience analysis
- competition study
Depending on your project, we combine the most relevant phases. Each phase has been designed independently so as not to unnecessarily increase your budget.
Qualitative techniques that make the difference
In most projects, we propose to our clients to carry out a qualitative phase before starting the quantitative survey. This is because, even for projects that appear to be simple such as a satisfaction survey, it is necessary to ensure in advance that the factors that influence customer behaviour have been understood and are covered by the quantitative questionnaire.
A qualitative phase is an undeniable success factor in any market research or quantitative survey. You can find examples on our website of real clients’ projects related to:

The benefits of market research
The market research carried out by IntoTheMinds allows you to:
- to know precisely the reasons why your customers buy (or not)
- to know the size of a market, its evolution, growth prospects and significant trends in related sectors
- to understand the unconscious needs of your future customers and to adapt your products and services accordingly
- to identify promising marketing segments, those that are at maturity or in decline
- to analyse purchasing behaviour and its evolution
- to know your competitors, their strategies, their positioning and the profitability of the sector
- detect threats and opportunities and their consequences
All our market research is tailor-made and is accompanied by our recommendations for each aspect of your marketing strategy. We pay particular attention to differentiating factors.
We do not just provide you with raw data. We also analyse it taking into account the specificities of your project, your company, and propose concrete and feasible actions to improve your marketing strategy.
Because we are also an SME, we understand your needs better than anyone else and make sure we remain pragmatic and realistic. We will, therefore, never propose an unrealistic plan of action.
A relationship of trust in all our market research projects
In all our projects, we aim to establish a relationship of trust with our customers. Whether you are a large company, an SME, or an entrepreneur, we conduct your market research project as if it were our own. We are constantly interacting with you, explaining what we discover as we go along, frequently reporting to you until the final delivery of the results.
Like Carolina and Diego Campoamor, two successful entrepreneurs who have entrusted us with the market research of their new cosmetic brand, you can trust IntoTheMinds to make your project a reality. Listen to their testimonial below following the completion of their market research in France, Spain and Belgium.
- Our market research assignments typically last between 2 and 6 months, depending on the complexity of the project and in particular, the exhaustiveness of the need’s analysis phase (qualitative analysis). The average is 3.5 months.
- A consultant is assigned to your project and is supervised by a manager. The latter becomes your single point of contact.
- Intermediate reports are provided between the different stages of the market research.
During the project, presentations are organised to explain the progress of our analyses. We typically arrange a first meeting during the customer needs analysis phase, followed by a full presentation of customer needs.
Deliverables consist of a paper version of the presentations given to you, and a final report at the end of the mission. When your project is also based on a qualitative phase, we also include the “raw material” (recordings, transcriptions, coding files) that has allowed us to reach our conclusions at no extra cost.
Although each market research is unique and tailor-made for our clients, we spend an average of 30 working days (spread over an average of 3.5 months) per research study. The first prices start at 5000€, excluding VAT for a satisfaction survey or a brand awareness / notoriety survey. For our qualitative market research, prices begin at €8,000, excluding VAT. In some cases, subsidies of up to 60% are available, and we take care of all the formalities for you. We do not start the research without the guarantee that you will get the subsidies.
We are able, from the first telephone appointment, to give you a precise price range. A binding offer is usually sent to you within 48 hours of the first appointment.
Market research in France that has changed everything
ProDegustation was the laboratory that, between 2005 and 2011, allowed us to test and finalise our market research method. We have developed and tested every step of the way: from Design Thinking to customer satisfaction measurement and qualitative methods of exploring customer needs, the results were spectacular and led to the sale of the company to the Videlot holding company, owner of Château Petrus, in 2011.
