How Business Transcription Services can Support Market Research

by Julie Clements Promoter
Market research is an important tool for businesses of all sizes utilize, whether they are implementing a new product or service, or improving on an old one. Transcription of market research interviews by a reliable business transcription service can help companies make wise investment decisions easily. Transcribing market research interviews helps business organizations to keep up with the latest market trends, gain a competitive advantage, and reach their target audience. It helps companies to analyze prospects for expansion, identify new business opportunities, figure out problem areas, formulate market strategies, identify consumer needs, improve selling activities, and so on. Transcription allows businesses to make the most of their research interviews.

Here are the processes and challenges involved in market research:

Note taking and reporting: Note taking and reporting are essential in market research because it is not possible to remember all the details. But note taking and reporting are a time consuming process and one that is also prone to errors. So the best option is to record interviews and get them transcribed by an experienced audio transcription service provider. This will help you to access market research data quickly and highlight the crucial points in no time. 

Recording: Recording saves a lot of time and effort. But if there are multiple speakers, there will be different slangs, accents, and overlapping dialogue. Professional transcriptionists can accurately transcribe audio with such issues easily and accurately, apply timestamps, and annotate finished transcripts.

Managing workflow: Your workflow can be stymied even if you use digital tools. You have to manually adjust audio files each step of the way. When you record interviews, you may have to compress and convert the files before sending them to the transcription company. Using non-API integrated transcription tools means there are chances of losing information along the way. You might accidentally delete a file during conversion or end up with transcription files that cannot be converted easily. Transcription companies offer toll-free phone numbers that you can use to record dictation. Automated transcription is another option that you can use. It works with speech recognition software, but is prone to errors and the transcripts would have to be reviewed and edited. 

Market research is an organized process to collect and analyze information regarding markets, target markets/market niches, customer profiles, competitors, market trends, customer satisfaction with products and services, etc. A thorough study of markets, customers and their needs can help companies develop suitable marketing programs and develop business strategies to meet the demands of consumers.

It is difficult to predict what the future holds but with effective market research, companies can start soliciting ideas from the team. The new ideas can be evaluated and used to guide investment decisions. Business transcription service providers can convert audio recordings of interviews with the customers, opinion polls, focus group sessions, consumer forums, etc., into accurate transcripts. Companies can use this information as a base for making projections and formulating business strategies.
