Meister & Associates


You're busy, you're short on staff, you're not ready to hire another full-time employee. But you need assistance managing that project. Meister & Associates can help. Here's how:

We partner with corporate marketing departments, moderators, consultants and ad agencies on qualitative and quantitative research. We create proposals, send out requests for bids, generate budgets, write screeners and questionnaires, prepare field materials, hire and oversee suppliers, trouble shoot, manage client needs and reconcile project costs.

We do all this on a project-by-project basis.

You have a focus group study that you need to set up in multiple markets but you're out-of-town moderating. Or you have a central location testing project where you need 200 people recruited yesterday! You're being pulled in a hundred different directions and you just can't do it all.

Meister & Associates is here to help. We manage all types of projects, from focus groups, one-on-one interviews, dial groups, brainstorming and ideation sessions to telephone studies, central location testing, mall intercepts, in-home studies, on-line and computer-assisted surveys.

How does it work?

You receive a client request for a proposal for a new project. Call Meister & Associates and we will work with you on study design and specs. We then get you cost estimates from field (and code/tab if needed).

You get the job, now what?

Meister & Associates will hire the field services, develop the screener/questionnaire and work with you and/or your client to get the final interviewing tool into field. We'll also prepare the field instructions and other field materials such as a respondent summary form, term report, quota sheets and re-screener.

Who deals with the field suppliers?

We do. Meister & Associates is the direct contact for the project so that you don't have to be. We manage all aspects of field: we brief field, we answer questions, we troubleshoot problems, we check respondent summaries on a daily basis. If requested, we can also conduct telephone re-screening/validations.

How do you justify the cost?

Think of us as an added-value reseller of field (or field/code/tab). The added-value is: a better organized project, more qualified respondents, higher show rate, and more time for you to do what you do best — managing clients and analyzing data.
