CUSTOMIZED RESEARCH SOLUTIONS

While we launched Good Run in 2010, we’ve got over 70 years of experience with consumer research.

We're passionate about translating what people do, think, and feel into actionable business insights. To do that, we craft creative consumer research solutions. And because every research challenge is unique, we believe the solution should be as well. Every project is customized based on your learning objectives and budget.

Our bag of tricks includes both qualitative and quantitative methods and we’ve been known to combine approaches and innovate methodologies from scratch to build the perfect fit for even the most complex challenges.

RECRUITING THE RIGHT PEOPLE

PaigeStevensPhotography-20.jpg

We believe that getting the right mix of people is fundamental to the success of your consumer research question.

 

So, if we get a little anal about recruiting, it’s because we care. You tell us who you’re looking to talk to and we’ll find them and chat them up.

Here's what we do to find the GOOD folks for you:

SUPERSTAR COMMUNITY

We've developed an eye for GOOD people. From projects past, we curate people who are engaged, creative and offer an interesting perspective. Residing all over the US, they are in every way representative consumers, who just happen to be super-articulate and expressive. If you want to talk with a pool of potentially passionate consumers, this is your jam.

MEETING WHERE IT MAKES SENSE

ONLINE

What's happening in the world may be new to us, but virtual qualitative isn't. For years, we've been honing and mastering creative applications of virtual consumer research techniques.

IN-CONTEXT

Sometimes it makes sense to meet consumers at their gym, on the job site, or in the grocery store and talk about their habits, preferences, behaviors and barriers as the action unfolds in real time.

Fresh Living Room

IN-HOME

We have conversations in consumer homes, peek into their cabinets and report truths based on the realities of
their lives.

THE REC ROOM

In January 2017 we opened afirst-of-its-kind research and event space. Our facility, located in midtown Richmond, Virginia, combines the technological capabilities of traditional focus group facilities with a casual and comfortable environment that enables participants to feel at home during sessions.
