The concept behind Paradigm2 is very simple, but also extremely unique. If you’ve considered your need for market research in the past, and explored this option with traditional research firms, you would have been confronted with unbelievably high prices. In response to this, our experience with small businesses has repeatedly indicated that most business owners are looking for the same set of research solutions, time and again. This has allowed Paradigm2 to develop a set of offerings and – more importantly – an efficient and effective process for executing these projects. As you know, economies of scale and meaningful experience with these types of processes lead to lower costs. We can therefore complete research faster than the large firms, and for a fraction of the price.
