Hanover’s Consumer Journey Solution helps uncover consumer preferences and drivers of behavior, enabling a more targeted marketing strategy.

We help you answer key questions and develop strategies for success:

  • How do consumers perceive our product/brand relative to our competitors?
  • What are the characteristics or behaviors that define the segments that should be targeted within the broader population?
  • What drives consumer purchase decisions, and where in that process could we most effectively inflect decisionmaking?
  • How can we increase customer loyalty or transform customers into brand advocates?

A Word from One of Our Corporate Clients:

We realized the demand for insights was outpacing our team’s growth. For the cost of another full-time employee, we had the entire Hanover team dedicated to help with big projects that require consistent attention. I felt confident that experienced Hanover analysts were working on my high-priority projects, which in turn freed up my time to accomplish company-wide goals and grow the internal awareness of the Insights Team. This allowed us to contribute to multiple business units and support different departments with strategic research. Trusting Hanover Research as a strategic partner has enabled our lean team to have a bigger impact.
