I thought it was really interesting to hear other’s opinions and thoughts on the topic. It made me see it in different ways other then how I saw it to begin with. I thought this was really fun!

Welcome to Market Research

Choosing to participate in market research gives you the chance to share your feedback on new products, services, ideas, commercials, and much much more! We mostly work within the consumer sector supporting major brands in their consumer research efforts.

We conduct research for companies like your local YMCAs, local utilities and local government, and major brands like Disney, Amazon, and Microsoft.

Who is Strategic Research Associates?

Strategic Research Associates is a Northwest-based market research company who has been providing custom market research for our clients since 1996.

Through surveys, focus groups, and other methods of primary research we gather insights from consumers about their perceptions of our clients’ products, services, company, brand, and more.

Many studies are held at our own focus group facilities in Spokane and Federal Way, WA as well as other partner locations throughout the US. We also work directly with the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg to when doing projects in the Tampa area.

Focus Groups

People love participating in focus groups! Focus groups usually consist of 8-12 people who are guided through a group discussion by a research moderator to discuss a variety of issues. Everyone who participates is specifically invited to based on their background and opinions to ensure a diverse group dynamic.

Most discussions last around two hours, though mock trials and legal focus groups are often all-day activities. Snacks and refreshments are provided with every study group, as well as a cash honorarium. 

The more we know about you the better, as we do our best to invite people to the groups the qualify for. Incrementally we may reach out to you to update your profile with more specifics so we can be sure we are only inviting you to the research studies you may qualify for!

Surveys

Often our clients wish to gather opinions from a large group of people within a certain region, and in those instances, surveys are the best approach! Typically for a survey to be accurate we will gather responses from hundreds of individuals in an area, young and old, all controlled by quotas so we are targeting the same number of responses per segment of the population.

We strive to keep our surveys at less than 10 minutes in length, and many are available by phone and online to make it easy for you to join and provide feedback.

We also operate Immersive Camp which is a nationwide research panel focused just on online surveys. Each survey completed here can earn you e-gift card credits towards Amazon, PayPal, and more!

Why are you calling me?

We hand dial RDD landline and cell phone numbers within the regions we are targeting throughout the United States to gather opinions on various topics for our focus group and survey projects. We are selling nothing, and the purpose of our calls is to only collect your opinions. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) does not extend the National Do Not Call requirements to market research calling efforts. Regardless, we respect your time and are always happy to remove your number from our call lists permanently.

You can find the full text of the FCC Telephone Consumer Protection Act here which better explains why our efforts are allowed.

Additionally, the CTIA has many recommendations for companies and consumers on how to appropriately manage and legitimize calls made to your cell phone number. If you are looking for tools to help you identify SPAM and Robocalls to your cell number, please check out the resources here CTIA – How to Stop Robocalls.

Legitimate companies like ours always ensure we are compliant with the recommendations of the CTIA, and FTC and FCC regulations before we attempt any work.

You can also opt-out from our calls and SMS messages at any time via SMS by texting STOP to 509-299-8060 (this is our dedicated SMS line).
