The Top 4 Market Research Tools You Should Utilize

If you have previously managed a brand for quite a long amount of time, you might start developing this so-called natural “instinct” or hunch about your customers’ behaviour and profiles. However, this “instinct” could also mislead you into taking the wrong direction. Believe it or not, even some of the top brand managers are still experiencing this phenomenon. In order to avoid that, it is important to utilize market research tools available in the market. You can easily generate audience behaviour, insights, trends or other metrics that can help you engage with your followers—or even gain new ones! Here is the list of market research tools you should probably start utilizing.

1. Answer The Public

This free tool is useful enough if you know how to perfectly utilize it to its full potential. Answer The Public helps you pool questions about your brand and company which help you get the general idea about what people usually ask about regarding your brand. From this data, you can then proceed to create a strategy for market research and social media contents. Unfortunately, this free tool could not help you create the suitable campaign for your audience due to its limited feature.

2. Spyfu

Just like its name, Spyfu is a tool that spies on your competitors and helps you get a better glimpse at their market research strategy. Spyfu will provide you SEO keywords, ads strategy, backlinks, and SERP analysis. To put it simply, they will help you get almost everything you need to boost your website. However, no matter how it excels in helping you boost your website, they do not provide any service on social media. So, if you are looking for tools that can also help you with social media market research, Spyfu might not be the tool that you are currently looking for.

3. Latana

Latana might currently be one of the most comprehensive market research tools on the market. Not only does it provide you with insights from your audience, Latana can also provide you with things such as:

  • Access to cutting-edge research expertise
  • The sentiment of your audience
  • Track your brand data based on geographical location

With these reliable data, easy dashboard, and deep segmentation of your market, Latana can surely be a powerful tool for any market researcher. However, it is only recommended for professional market researcher because you would need to pay for your subscription to this tool. If you are still a beginner, it would be better to use other choices of free tools instead.
