ATLANTA, Ga., March 20, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Jean Fasching, vice president for CMI, a full-service marketing research company, will present “Marketing Through Intermediaries: Simulated Conversations Put You In the Room” during NewMR’s “Putting the ‘Qual’ in Qualitative Research” Virtual Event on March 28.

The NewMR Qualitative Research Virtual Event is an international webinar series exploring leading edge qualitative research techniques. The event will bring together practitioners and academic researchers who are pushing the boundaries in the qualitative research arena. Fasching is one of three speakers to be featured in the New York virtual session from 2:00 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. March 28, 2012.

In industries that rely heavily on intermediaries to convey finely tuned product messages (e.g. insurance, financial services, and pharmaceuticals), the distance between the brand team and the actual consumer can seem like a million miles. How do you really know whether and how your intermediaries are communicating your most important messages, benefits, and features?

When the research goal is to understand the complexities, challenges and opportunities that occur during important interactions between intermediaries and consumers, a simulated conversation is an incredibly effective substitute for reality.

“A carefully researched and strategically designed simulated conversation can reveal startlingly real representations of actual conversations,” said Fasching. “These insights empower and educate marketing and sales teams to better target and communicate directly with intermediaries and, ultimately, consumers.”

Fasching will share tips for designing simulated conversations that become the foundation for:
* Insightful talking points that facilitate effective conversations and overcome challenges for intermediaries
* Valuable educational tools that inform consumers before, during and after intermediary conversations
* Detailed recommendations that target particular segments of intermediaries and consumers more effectively
