Adhoc market research

Small strategy consultancy seeking research partner for adhoc reserach support.

Access to subscription services advantageous.

Need to be able to compile a synopsis of findings.

All sources must be referenced.

Volume of work will vary but would like to set up relationship with trusted partner for this kind of work.

Please only bid if prepared to do a trial question

Here is the trial question:

The topic to research is around market intermediaries. They typically sit between a product or service provider and customers. Examples include: webjet, iselect, energywatch, cannex.

The hypotheses to test are that:
1) Intermediaries enter markets where there is pricing complexity and headspace in margins
2) Intermediaries grow share by simplifying customer choices (through enabling pricing comparisons)
3) After a period of time, providers respond by reducing margins, improving transparency, and sometimes increasing convenience
4) Following that response the share of sales going through an intermediary stabilises or declines.

We are looking for data that can evidence these hypotheses - examples include:
% of sales that any intermediator achieved in a market each year post launch

Suspect that web jet or the travel industry is a good place to start.

Examples of how suppliers have reacted to intermediaries are also sought.

Thanks for having a look at this. Assuming decent quality the best response will be paid.

Hope you find the topic interesting.
