MentalityInternational™ is the international version of Motivaction’s unique values and lifestyle research tool. What are the characteristics of your target group in the United States, France and Germany, for example? What are the differences and similarities between your target group in these countries, and where do the opportunities lie? By conducting research into perception, our international clients gain more insight into what motivates their target group in different countries, into their day-to-day lives, how trends come about, and the broader context in which they operate.
MentalityInternational may be applied for strategic development and positioning purposes. To help you optimise your approach to the target group, we offer you research and recommendations related to concept development, product development and communications issues. The research may be applied on an international level using focus groups, single interviews with your target groups, and via large-scale written and online surveys.
MentalityInternational is a richer tool for explaining consumer behavior than the traditional categories based on age, gender, education and income. The research methodology offers you effective input for your communications strategy, taking the differences between countries into account. We enrich your key segments with mentality information, enabling you to get better returns from your investments in marketing and innovation.
Motivaction conducts international research on a very regular basis, and has access to worldwide research panels and local knowledge of various countries and regions. MentalityInternational is applied to research conducted in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, England, France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Denmark and Sweden, among other areas. We can also apply these tools in other countries. Interested? We would be happy to provide you with a customized offer.
