Concept testing in the post-launch phase

Date of publication: March 1, 1975

Author: P. C.M. Hamblin


There is probably very little early post-launch research in the life of a new product which is true concept testing. An informal analysis is made in this paper of the kinds of situation in which a company might feel that post-launch concept research is needed. The likely needs of companies in these situations are discussed. Ideas are presented for improving the efficiency of early post-launch research. These are ideas on sampling, on interviewing and on the use of mapping techniques.
