Complex questions. Clear answers.

Great market research considers all sides of a business decision. It leads to tough choices and doesn’t dance around recommendations. Above all, it provides context and clarity.

Why You Should Work With Us

Businesses need clear direction. But the world is complex. Market research that ignores that complexity is often simplistic, superficial or wrong. We don’t cut through complexity. We deal with it. We factor it into our research. We filter and refine it.

Ultimately, we deliver clear answers

Answers that resolve the divide between complexity and clarity. Answers that are correct. If this is interesting to you, read some stories of how and for whom Dig has worked. Or, see who’s behind Dig.

How Dig’s Different

Dig brings market research into the real world. This requires us to integrate complexity – business questions, competitive contexts in which consumers make choices, and methodological decisions. We can do this because our senior consultants collaborate internally and with clients on every project to develop custom-designed solutions that address the business’ needs. Our methods are more labour intensive, but they deliver superior results.

The way we work

We eagerly look outside of market research, and then integrate the opportunities we discover into advanced methodologies and ways of delivering data. We don’t ask people why they think or behave a certain way; we derive it. We don’t ask people what they will do; we create simulated decision environments and allow them to act. Wherever possible, the numbers we present are those that matter to the business: volume, revenue and profit.

The way we don’t work

A lot of market research lives in a parallel universe, where people know why they do what they do, where their choices are logical, where they can predict their own behaviour. It’s a place where methodologies developed years ago, that no longer reflect current thinking, are permitted to survive. This universe has its own language. A language of top two box scores and performance vs. normative databases that are filled with failed ideas. This language is divorced from the language of business.

Market research shouldn’t be a barrier to change

This other universe exists because it benefits many market research vendors. It allows for simplistic, scalable methodologies that can be managed by junior staff. But this universe does not benefit market research users. Those who enter it find that research often becomes an obstacle to change. We Dig people have all seen this universe, clocked its failings, and created a better one of our own.

Join the Team

We have experienced strong growth since our launch in 2010. This creates opportunities for learning and career advancement. The roles we have listed here are our perspective on what we need. But we try to be open-minded. If you think you would be a great addition to the Dig team and have a different vision of what role you can play, please contact us.

We are focused on building a better market research agency. What does “better” mean? The most important thing to understand is that we have tools, approaches and a perspective on how research should be done, but we do not sell ‘canned’ methodologies. So if you want to manage an established process, Dig is not the place for you. People who succeed at Dig Insights either have a fantastic technical understanding of market research or are willing to build this understanding. Ideal team members are smart, creative and fun. They use quantitative research to work through complex questions and deliver clear answers. They question established research practices and are passionate about helping our clients to move their businesses forward. They are comfortable working in a fast moving, flat organization.

Are you ready for something better?

We are looking for people to fill these roles:

Cindy Wenfu - Market Research Consultant at Dig Insights

Q: What was your background before joining Dig Insights?

A: I completed my Bachelor of Business Administration at Schulich School of Business, York University. It was a bit of a journey for me to discover the decision-making process of marketing strategy. Through courses and case practises at school, I realized the importance of consumer insights evidence into marketing strategy. I was also able to utilize my passion of understanding people into this field. Market research is like a multifunctional and powerful weapon in the dynamic and fast-changing business world.

Q: What is your approach to market research?

A: It is key and should always be the first step to understand the intention of the study’s end users. Therefore, given the very distinct research purposes, I would look into the data and find out useful information to serve for that purpose. I am also a big believer in brain-storming. The joint efforts will always spark something valuable. Eventually, presenting results and findings in an understandable way makes sure that all information is successfully delivered to the end users.

Q: How do you think market research will change in the next 3 years?

A: As the concept of “Big Data” has been brought up more often, market research will be one of the fast-growing industries. In 3 years, in terms of technology advancements, mobile and virtual reality would be more and more involved in data collection and analysis. Collecting real-time data will be a trend.

Q: If you were not in market research, what work would you want to do?

A: Maybe a high school counsellor? I enjoy holding counselling sessions with high school students to help identifying their passion and work on it. Through our conversation, I always helped them to pick up important moments and. Every time, the student would leave the conversation understanding of their experience and what their passions are. That’s also me utilizing my skill into understanding people!
