Market Research & Consulting




Market Research & Consulting


LinguiSearch is a boutique qualitative market research consultancy committed to helping customers gain a competitive edge through better, more informed decisions.  Utilizing linguistic analytic techniques, we gather qualitative data through individual interviews, focus groups, dyads, triads and other qualitative methods.

We help clients ensure that the messages they intend to communicate to target customers are the messages these customers actually walk away with.  We analyze the way in which customers use and understand language -- and how this impacts the way effective communications should be crafted, tested and refined.






Our research approach is founded in linguistics – we analyze how an audience uses and understands language.  The language used by customers gives deep insight into:

  • The relationships between products (or brands) and respondents.
  • Respondents’ thought and decision-making processes, and how well (or poorly) a message fits into those processes.
  • The motivational potential of a message.

Any type of qualitative market research will benefit from this approach. Be it exploratory research, brand positioning, message/lexicon development, war-gaming, or creative concept, sales aid or journal ad testing, all require understanding how customers think, and the logic links that take them from point to point in their decision-making process.

Linguistic analysis is not based on “gut instinct,” nor is it a shallow tally of what a respondent likes or dislikes. Rather, it is a meticulous and disciplined approach which delivers highly valuable insights, actionable recommendations, and uncovers implications that go beyond the immediate objectives to provide direction for longer term strategies.

Capabilities Include:

  • Exploratory Market Assessment
  • Brand/Corporate Identity and Image
  • Promotional and Marketing Strategy
  • Pre-Launch Positioning Strategy
  • Post-Launch Re-Positioning
  • Promotion & Message Development & Testing
  • Product Concept Testing

Transparent Process


Transparent Process


LinguiSearch utilizes a transparent process specifically developed to generate optimal messaging. 

This methodology relies on individual interviews that are iterative in nature (e.g., the stimulus changes from interview to interview).  LinguiSearch moderator/analysts employ a psychiatric interviewing technique, and apply real-time semiotic and language analyses to meet the desired objectives.  The process is divided into four key steps:

  • Vision,
  • Moderating,
  • Analytics / Analysis,
  • Recommendations.

A more detailed description of the process can be found on here on our website.
