Insights & Analytics
Carat Estonia has the industry-leading capability for research, insight, and evaluation in Estonia. On top of all the other industry-related information sources and tools available in Estonia, our clients benefit from our proprietary survey, the Consumer Connection System.
Consumer Connection System (CCS)
CCS is the most in-depth media and marketing survey out there. It has a sample size of 3000+ and includes detailed media usage data in the Bought, Owned, and Earned media ecosystem, as well as broad information about consumer lifestyle, personality, and attitudes, coupled with in-depth information about different category and brand usage and preferences.
CCS Follow-up Surveys
We offer our clients a chance to create ad-hoc CCS follow-up surveys to gain even more in-depth knowledge about the specific category or brand. The unique feature of CCS follow-up surveys is the possibility to link this data directly into the existing CCS database. This way, we can provide our clients with analysis and segmentations based on all the consumer and media related information from CCS together with newly acquired information about the specific product or brand from a follow-up survey.
Research and Evaluation
At Carat Estonia we highly recommend our clients evaluate their campaign effectiveness in order to better prepare for future activities. Campaigns can be evaluated on various levels.
Campaign output measurement reports are provided to all our clients. Tracking outputs is the most basic and direct level of campaign productivity evaluation. It gives basic information about community exposure to any given message in any given time, and is measured with metrics like GRP, TRP, Impressions, Reach, Frequency, etc.
Campaign outcomes are the changes that have taken place within the audience because of the campaign, such as attitudes towards the campaign, increased knowledge or awareness, behaviour changes, consumers trying to educate themselves about the topic, etc. Such outcomes cannot be measured by simple output metrics; thus more sophisticated techniques are needed. Therefore, Carat Estonia’s in-house research department encourages clients to look beyond simple measurement of campaign output.
