Desk research or secondary research means finding relevant data which already exists. This method involves our researchers reviewing previous research around a subject or information available in the public domain to gain a broad understanding and view of a particular field or subject matter.
Desk research is often advantageous for clients wishing to gain a better understanding of their marketplace, competitor positioning, benchmarking or indeed looking to size new opportunities.
At S2, we have an experienced team who enjoy desk research to gain valuable data, insights and information through online research, outbound calling or mystery shopper techniques.
