Qualitative research on male Sure variant

Date of publication: May 3, 1974

Abstract:

The range of Sure products consists of three fragrances, Cool Pink, Blue Mountain, and Forest Fresh, all of which are primarily targeted at female purchasers and users of anti-transpirant deodorants. Serious consideration is currently being given to the introduction of a fourth variant which is to be positioned to appeal to male users. This research comprised some small scale qualitative research amongst men to investigate their attitudes to a fourth Sure variant on this platform. At the same time, respondents were exposed to a number of alternative designs and names to obtain guidelines on pack development.


About this collection: 
Peter Cooper (1936-2010) was co-founder of Cooper Research & Marketing, later CRAM International, with his wife Jackie French. Cooper studied Clinical Psychology at the University of Manchester where he became a Lecturer in the early 1960s. He became involved in conducting commercial Motivational Research and by 1968 opened Cooper Research & Marketing in Manchester. Cooper was one of the key pioneers of what we now know as Qualitative Research. CRAM opened its London office in Wimpole Street in 1970 and moved to 53 St Martins Lane, WC2N 4EA, in 1972 where it remained until Peter's passing in 2010. The company changed its name to CRAM International in around 1985/86, reflecting the increasingly international nature of its work. The CRAM/Peter Cooper Archive Collection, which includes commercial research reports and early academic papers, has been preserved by Peter's children, Diana, Helen and Jonathan, and his colleague Simon Patterson. The scanning of the Archive has been supported by ESOMAR, AMSR, Peter's colleague Dr Alan Branthwaite & family, the Cooper family, and QRi Consulting. The CRAM/Peter Cooper Archive Collection is managed by QRi Consulting. The CRAM logo and CRAM International name are Registered Trademarks and the property of QRi Consulting.
