Content research services
We live and breathe stories. Helping create stories from data is why we get out of bed in the morning. Enhance your brand with creative content, tailored to the audiences that matter across all your channels. At Arlington Research, we use our storytelling approach to all our research to ensure you grow your coverage, drive sales and convert leads.
How Arlington Research can help you
At Arlington Research we recognise one of the core elements of a story is the ability to identify a drama and there is no better resource to highlight those issues than market research. At the same time market research needs to tell a story. Yes it needs to stand up to scrutiny and be flawless in its design and execution but if it doesn’t pass the “so what” it has been a wasted project. At Arlington Research we believe that evidence and insight should bring your story to life and every question we ask is created to support your storytelling.
Arlington Research specialises in creating market research projects to fuel content strategies and help you generate the coverage in the media and the leads you deserve.

“The analysis document given at the end was exactly what we needed. Going through raw data is hard, but the way they presented it with key themes written out, as well as charts, helped us look at each question from several angles to glean the best insights possible.”

About content research
Our ability to help you create imaginative PR and marketing content starts with understanding what you want to communicate. Our director level team takes your story idea and create research projects that articulate your story in a manner that your target audience will take notice.
Arlington Research will help fuel your content with research with the following:
Intelligent and unbiassed questionnaire design created to deliver impactful results which hold up to scrutiny by the media and your competitors.
Research conducted to the highest standards with a robust sample you can trust.
Desk research to ensure someone else hasn’t run a similar story before you invest in the content.
Input from a PR director to ensure the research isn’t just flawless BUT also passes the ‘so what test’ with the media.
A research director will be on hand to check your content to ensure all stats have been interpreted correctly so you can publish content in the media with 100% confidence. This service is always included free of charge for every PR project commissioned.
It can often be helpful to conduct an omnibus survey to test a hypothesis ahead of investing in a larger bespoke project.
