Bespoke Market and Conversion Research projects combined with digital strategy to help you make better marketing and business decisions that increase leads and maximise profit.

Put your trust in data, not guesses and opinions…


"We found the Blueprint document process excellent from start to finish. Miro demonstrated their expertise throughout and have provided us with something we can use to shape our marketing and commercial strategies on a long term basis rather than a single-use audit other agencies push."

- Rob Sankey, Midcounties Co-operative

With over 15 years in market research and strategic marketing, our team are fully qualified to deliver a range of research projects...

Are your marketing campaigns not generating enough high value enquiries?

Many campaigns fail because businesses haven't invested in any market or conversion research. 

You can have the best-planned campaign, but it will ultimately fail if you're not talking to the right people with the right value propositions.

Whether you're an Investment Banking, Insurance or Accountancy Firm, investing in research is pivotal in understanding your range of customers' needs (B2B and B2C) and how to effectively communicate with them across a wide range of online channels.

Why market and conversion research?

Understanding their values, emotional needs, fears, uncertainties, and doubts is what makes a winning campaign that gets in front of them AND gets them to click through and enquire. You don't know this information without conducting primary research such as 1:1 interviews, questionnaires, and overall target market research.

But market research can be time-consuming and often not practically applied to marketing tactics after investing all the time and resources, right? Well, not it doesn't have to be. Our Blueprint service combines research and strategy together to give you detailed insights into your customers, market, and competition with full acquisition and retention marketing strategies

Further conversion research delves deeper into the psychology of marketing to make sure you're really communicating with your audience at an emotional level.

So, if you want to generate more enquiries without increasing your costs, now is the time to invest in research...

Research and Strategy Combined

How are our Blueprints different from other agency reports?

Market research and strategic marketing have been combined to give you an actionable research Blueprint. It delivers valuable customer, competitor, and conversion insights and translates these into a detailed marketing strategy or test optimisation program to start increasing your leads and maximising profit.

Evidence-based marketing Blueprints. Built from research data, not guesses and opinions...

Market Research Blueprint

Market research is vital in any size organisation; it helps set strategic direction and keep you competitive in the market. Through quantitative and qualitative research methods we find out who your customers are and what’s important to them to create better marketing communications that speak directly to their needs.

We then benchmark you against competitors and create a marketing channel, customer value, and customer retention strategy you can implement straight away knowing all recommendations are based on data-driven evidence.

The market research blueprint includes:

  • Customer Research (interviews and surveys)
  • Competitor Analysis
  • Market Trends
  • Customer Retention Strategy

...and up to 8 more research and strategy sections all dedicated to helping you reach and acquire more customers.

Data & Conversion Blueprint

Get a better understanding of how your website visitors behave and what you need to do to persuade them to enquire. Delve deeper into the “why” of your marketing plan with the data and conversion blueprint that aims to understand the psychology of your customers. Primary research methods aim to give you an understanding of why your customers behave the way they do and what you can do to create a better site experience for them that encourages them to convert.

The data and conversion blueprint includes:

  • Qualitative Research (persona and voice-of-customer interviews & surveys)
  • Quantitative Research and Data Analysis Healthcheck
  • Product Messaging and UVP Positioning
  • Site Usability Evaluation
  • CRO Recommendations and Test Plan

...and up to 8 more conversion research sections dedicated to helping you understand your customers' behaviour and emotional values.

Why invest in market and conversion research?

3 benefits of investing in market research...

  1. It minimises budget and investment risk
  2. Spot potential threats and opportunities early
  3. Stay ahead and stay competitive

Do you want to be the best?

If you want to be the best, you've got to invest time and budget into research, or else you're not making data-driven decisions. You're just guessing and hoping something sticks. 

Both primary research and secondary research can be utilised as an insurance policy against dangers on the road ahead. Coupling this with some qualitative research for deeper probing can highlight certain opportunities or warning signs that may otherwise have been missed in your marketing planning.

Stop stealing your competitors' bad ideas. Stealing ideas is playing it safe - and safe isn't revolutionary. It's not what's going to make you stand out!

  • Research Project Proposal

    We will create a research project proposal detailing all the sections of research you want included. The proposal will breakdown what will be included in each section, how long the project is estimated to take with a date of delivery, and the final costs of the blueprint. You will then inform us is you want to go ahead with the project.

  • Implement Findings

    Whether you've chosen Market Research or the Conversion Research, your Blueprint will have actionable marketing and testing strategies to implement based on the research findings. You are then free to implement the strategy or test optimisation program yourself, hire another agency to implement it or discuss with us the next steps if you wish to use our marketing team for your campaigns. The research document is yours to take away and implement how you like.

FAQs and Additional Information

Typically, we say research takes between 4-5 weeks to complete. This will depend on the scope of work you need and any external factors, such as scheduling in 1:1 interviews with your customers or running a customer survey long enough to get actionable responses. We will discuss with you how long your blueprint will take in the initial consultation and set an expected deadline with regular communication intervals to keep you updated on progress.
