Today, market – bringing
with it a refreshed set of insights, richer consumer profiling and
award-winning sampling methodology. TGI is a product of Ask Afrika, the leading
locally owned market research company in South Africa.

“It takes constant innovation and reinvention to remain at the forefront
of the research sector and we are committed to this process by consistently
updating our data, upgrading our methodology and finding new ways to bring
fresh and relevant data, backed by integrity, to the market,” says Maria
Petousis, Executive for TGI at Ask Afrika. “The 2017 TGI data release is
underpinned by exactly this and brings with it great depth and breadth into the
South African consumer – insights that have positioned us as South Africa’s
broadest consumer profiling tool.”

Following the recent success in winning the Jenny Davis award at the TGI
Global Conference for the best data collection methodology enhancements – this
year’s TGI data release promises a new dimension of consumer profiling. The
data will continue to provide a breadth of insight, a guarantee of improved
data quality and a study that allows space for meaningful questions to be posed
to respondents.

TGI data relies on a national sample of 30 000 consumers aged 15+,
measuring 19 product sectors and 590+ product categories, including 450+
attitude statements, detailed demographics, psychographics and pre-defined
segmentation models. This year’s data release therefore represents a refreshed,
updated version of such consumer information and provides businesses with the
ability to make strategic business decisions confidently.

“Flexibility is key to delivering sound results in dynamic market
conditions and therefore, this year’s data will help us consistently drive
customised research strategies for our clients, at a fraction of ad-hoc
research costs. Insights are tailor-suited for categories and link demographic,
psychographic, brand and media insights – a tool that we believe marketers
simply cannot afford to do without,” concludes Petousis.
