Market Research in the Media Industries

Market Research in the Media Industries

On the Strategic Relationship between Client and Supplier

(p.254) 11 Market Research in the Media Industries
Making Media Work

Justin Wyatt

NYU Press

This chapter presents a strategic approach to conducting market research that benefits both clients and suppliers, and addresses various tactical factors that lead to miscommunication and misrepresentation on both sides. However, despite outlining how an ideal market research initiative would develop, the chapter also recognizes the roles played by divergent interests, human error, and reputation-based economies in disrupting such development. Within the media industries, market research occupies a more tentative and variable space. The creative nature of the film, television, or digital media “product” offers an initial hurdle for the inclusion of market research. The chapter analyzes the relationship between the market research supplier and the client within the media industries. Dissecting this relationship illustrates how the supplier–client market research relationship can be defined or modelled.
