  • PRESS PLACEMENTS 

  • WHAT CLIENTS SAY

    The Interactive Resource arranged a media opportunity for me and my company that resulted in us being featured on front page of Crain's New York Business. They know absolutely everyone and are great at connecting you to who you need to meet. Christine knows everyone. She's also smart, talented, hard-working, and an expert at introducing you to people you need to know. I highly recommend working with Christine if you want the right people to hear about what you're up to.

    - Mike Lingle

     

    Christine is a knowledgeable and conscientious resource for digital business development, communications and recruiting activities. She is a wonderful connector of people. She helped my company find new clients and introduced me to some great resources.

    - Camille Schenkel

     

    I have worked with Christine for more than a decade on a variety of healthcare, internet, and marketing projects. Her gift is connecting clients with cutting edge resources (both human and technical) with lightning speed. She is a reliable project manager, resourceful researcher, and creative marketer. What truly sets her apart is that she is always a joy to work with—extraordinarily gifted at managing challenging situations and people with exceptional good grace and humor.

    Solving Problems by Uncovering What Consumers Want

    What Does Customer Insight Research Do?

    Identify Deep Insights into the Minds of Your Customers

    Uncover opportunities on where you should go next with your products or services.

     

    Understanding customer needs, desires, attitudes, behaviors gives you evidence and direction to drive product, business, branding, and marketing strategy decisions.

    Who Needs Needs Customer Insights?

    Companies That Want to Prepare for the Future

    • Retail + Grocery

    • Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG)
    • Consumer Electronics
    • Medical + Pharmaceutical
    • Banks, Financial Services + FinTech

    How Do We Conduct Insight Research?

    Detect, Define + Declassify What Your Customers Want

    We use ethnography to understand the point of view of the customer. This generates an empathic perspective about your market and their experiences with and opinions of your company, its products or services.

     

    We use both Qualitative and Quantitative Research techniques (to tell a story or take multiple choice), Observational Research (to investigate consumer behavior in retail or product usage), and In-Person Interviews (to elicit first-hand feedback from your customers).

    We are a team of experienced brand strategists, insights researchers, behaviorists, cultural anthropologists, designers and inventors guiding brands through an exploratory process to uncover and discover the pain points, needs and insights of their customers.
