Our Survey Methodology
Keegan & Donato Consulting adheres to survey design, execution and presentation best practices. Our consumer research studies direct objective, non-leading questions to an appropriate universe of consumers. Procedures are in place to minimize potential biases in data collection, and our services include a full analysis and reporting of survey data.
We have designed hundreds of consumer research studies across many different industries with an objective of obtaining high-quality information from a representative sample of the targeted population. Survey samples are obtained from prominent marketing research companies that maintain multi-million-member online consumer panels.
The Keegan & Donato team can provide you with both strategic and technical advice; help you analyze the economic, financial, and/or technical complexities of your case; help you determine appropriate deposition questions to ask; help you prepare a testifying expert for deposition and trial; or critique potential weaknesses in an adversary’s survey evidence in a rebuttal report.
Cost of Trademark Surveys
Keegan & Donato Consulting’s consumer research studies are custom-designed to meet the needs of each individual case. This often involves targeting specialized populations of respondents and developing unique designs to address the specific issues of importance in the case, factors that affect the time and level of difficulty of executing a study, as well as its overall cost.
Most of our consumer studies cost between $30,000 and $80,000 to complete, and $55,000 is the most typical cost. We work on a fixed rate or hourly basis depending on your needs, and will work with you to design a survey that is both reliable and within your budget. We will always provide you with an estimate of project costs prior to engagement.
