We hope you all enjoyed the festive season and are getting back to work feeling rested and ready for the year ahead. At Market Solutions we have hit the ground running with a new mystery observer project being developed for Metro Trains and a large scale evaluation project getting underway for the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation. We would also like to introduce a new staff member, Belinda Tsao, who will be focused on business development. All in all 2017 is shaping up to be a big one at Market Solutions!
In fact most people fall into the industry, but they will typically be the type of people who show signs of being a sticky beak who wants to hear all the lastest gossip (qualitative researcher) or a data nerd who relishes in reams of numbers (quantitative researcher) – or both!!
Either way, our day to day work is all about unlocking the secrets held within the information we collect from surveys, focus groups, online forums, observations etc. Sometimes it’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack but that’s what we do best.
We love research, and because of this, our clients don’t have to (love research that is)! Yes we are the nerds of the marketing world – but at least we own it.

Our Christmas break up day involved a murder mystery “Santa Sleighing”. There was an array of shady characters such as Shona Stuff, Jock Elf, Candy Scuggs and Kay Mart along with the usual suspects Mary Christmas, Frosty and Rudolph!
We had a terrific time – thanks to The Murder Company!
We hope you all enjoyed the festive season and look forward to a successful 2016.
Our offices will be closed from 23 December 2015 and will re-open on Monday 4 January 2016.
If you have any urgent requests during this time please email Christine Maddern – email@example.com
We love research…and we love Xmas!!
After 22 years in business, we decided that 2015 was the year for Market Solutions to enter a paper, for the first time, in the Australian Market and Social Research Society’s (AMSRS) industry conference.
This year marks the 60th Anniversary of AMSRS and we were absolutely delighted to have won the People’s Choice award voted by industry members as well as receiving a highly commended in the Best Paper category!
Dr Nina Van Dyke presented our paper titled “What do you mean I’m drunk?! Development and testing of a conceptual framework for asking about intoxication”. The study was conducted through our Social Research Group (SRG) division.
Find out more about our new division established to conduct research that contributes to improved social outcomes for the general community and more specifically for those experiencing challenging life situations.

It may have been a very chilly and wet 11 degrees outside but it didn’t stop our team members from frantically racing through Queens Park to find the items hidden there that were needed to complete the team challenges back at base. Challenges included a 3D puzzle, trivia, charades and mental maths!
Samantha Coppinger (nutritionist) from SJ Health joined us as guest speaker to talk about health and wellbeing as it relates to office workers. All in all it was an informative and fun day!
That’s right – after 17 years at the historic Norwood House we have made the big decision to move into a modern, bright and sleek office building reflective of the branding changes (lots of purple!) we have been implementing over the past 12 months. We are still in Moonee Ponds (we love it here!) and have a new outlook directly opposite the beautiful Queens Park. Next time you’re in the neighbourhood – drop in for a visit!
