Getting Customers

Customer Lead Generation

Utilizes a survey approach to screening prospects and has several objectives:

  • Identify brand usage and satisfaction
  • Determine likelihood/factors for adding/switching brands
  • Explain client offerings
  • Determine if contact and/or information desired

Prospects are surveyed on either an on-going basis or over a certain time period, with sample size being matched to client's fulfillment capabilities. Results for all respondents (including those not desiring contact or info) are tabulated for market insight.

Aware Non-Customers

Identifies reasons why a company/brand is not used and provides information for converting. Respondents are typically screened for likelihood of purchasing within a certain time frame.


Involves brief interviews with key decision-makers to objectively determine reasons for wins/losses while identifying competitive advantages/disadvantages. Often conducted on an on-going basis.

Representative Clients

Keeping Customers

Customer Satisfaction

The most common type of survey. Typically conducted quarterly to provide a flow of information during the year, identify opportunities/problems, and establish trends. Sampling is segmented to ensure accurate representation of key customer groups and regions. Results can serve as the basis for an internal bonus program.

Renewal Intention

Conducted among customers prior to renewal dates for policies, service contracts, subscriptions, memberships, etc. Objectives are to determine the likelihood of renewing, reasons for low likelihood, identify competitive influences, and provide information to help salvage accounts.

Brand Equity

Overview of brand awareness/usage, strengths/weaknesses, and performance/NPS vis-a-vis targets and competition. Involves customers and non-customers for key products and regions, with results serving as input for strategic planning, marketing and improvement. Often used for acquisition due diligence.

Selling More to Customers

Product/Service Development

About Bourget Research

BRG was founded as Marketing Services Company in 1960 in Atlanta by Albert C. Bourget. Al was a Harvard Business School graduate, co-founder of National Merchandising Corp, and US Regional Sales Manager for GE.

The company was one of the earliest research firms in the US, and specialized in consumer projects and political polling. It had offices in Atlanta, Manhattan and Fairfield County, and expanded to the Hartford area in 1966.

In the early 70's, BRG diversified its industry expertise and formed strategic alliances with firms that specialize in field and data services. This allowed for a broader range of clients, international coverage, and more competitive pricing.

Chuck Bourget joined the company in 1980 following analytical positions at Manufacturers Hanover Trust and American Can Company. He became president in 1998, and is personally involved in all phases of a project. His background includes NYU Stern School of Business, and a masters degree in economics from Trinity College, Hartford.
