Our Value Proposition

The rapid growth of technology in many verticals and the maturing development of the Internet have led to the emergence of several new market research publishers. 


This has generated intense competition and limited publishers’ ability to reach potential buyers without devoting significant resources relative to the number of research reports they produce.


To boost revenues, publishers are increasingly outsourcing the marketing and sales of their research reports to the relatively new but growing market research distribution industry. Rather than sell research themselves, publishers want to focus on their core competency, namely producing high-quality research.

By using distributors to market and sell reports, publishers not only reduce the cost of sales and marketing but are able to keep their focus on their core business of producing market research. We believe that buyers are increasingly relying on distributors for the convenience of a “one-stop-shop,” to take advantage of product bundling across multiple publishers.


We also believe that the research resale market is growing faster than the overall syndicated research market. This is because the buyer does not have to go to multiple publishers to buy reports.

Based on our assessment, existing distributors have demonstrated little creativity in marketing and selling research reports, and have been slow to embrace the technological innovation and change that characterizes the digital publishing revolution.


Market Analyst is not only a one-stop shop like other resale outlets, but we add value to these reports because we convert them into eBook formats and in small, discrete packages for mobile access. We believe that we offer buyers a unique reading experience, not to speak of the fact that buyers can access the reports on their mobile devices – whenever they want, wherever they want. Since we break these reports down into chapters, sections and sub-sections, we allow buyers to narrow their purchases to exactly what they need. In the process, we increase the revenue-generating potential of these reports.

The Syndicated Research Industry & Market Analyst

Syndicated Research is research conducted and funded by a market research firm, but not for any specific client. The results and findings of such research are generally provided in the form of reports, presentations, and/or raw data etc. The research is made available in open market for anyone to purchase.


The business of syndicated market research resale and distribution owes its emergence and growth to the advent of the Internet, and it is being driven by intense competition stemming from the proliferation of market research publishers. 


The resale of market research is not an esoteric concept but, in our view, a high-margin business with tremendous potential for growth. It is public knowledge that there are well over 1,000 publishers of syndicated market research. Market Analyst already has contracts with over 80 publishers. But if a client wants to buy research from a publisher who is not our partner, we are able to order the research from that publisher and supply it to the client expeditiously. In effect, we can provide our clients with research produced by the vast majority of publishers globally.

"I believe in innovation, and the way you get innovation is you fund research and learn the basic facts."

What We've Accomplished So Far

  • We have signed formal agreements with over 80 market research firms to sell their research.
  • We have a growing portfolio of over 100,000 publications on our website.
  • We have received excellent customer feedback from clients who bought research reports from us.
  • We have assembled a top-notch Board of Advisors who help us to better hone our strategies to stay ahead of competition.
  • The Controlling and Managing Member of Market Analyst, Naqi Jaffery, has been in the market research business for more than 25 years, both as a publisher and a reseller. He has in-depth knowledge of this industry and is a firm believer in Market Analyst's business model.
  • Despite the fact that we have not aggressively marketed our services, we have received orders from several companies, including Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson and JP Morgan Chase.

Watch Steve Jobs on the value of market research.

Our Successes

Market Analyst was launched on a shoe-string budget and with skeleton staff. Even then, we have been able to achieve successes, such as:


  • Signing up over 80 publisher brands and putting their reports on our website
  • Selling our reports to several companies, including Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson and JP Morgan Chase

Our Failures

On the negative side, because of financial issues:


  • We have stopped signing up new publishers (and many are ready to jump in).
  • We have not been able to build up on our sales successes (because we lacked the resources to follow up with clients).

The Bottom Line

We believe that with the funding we are seeking, we will be able to rapidly grow our business.

What Makes Us Different

  • We allow access to market research content on any device, fixed or mobile. To the best of our knowledge and belief, we are the first and only company to do so.

  • We sell market research reports in eBook formats. We produce these reports in both the dominant eBook formats – EPUB and Mobi. To the best of our knowledge and belief, we are the first and only company to do so.

  • We have agreements in place with over 80 publishers to sell their research reports. 

  • When converting these reports to eBooks, we break these reports down into chapters. This allows us to sell individual chapters, adding a new dimension to the sale of market research.
  • We have signed up with an independent auditing firm to get the sales of our reports audited. To the best of our knowledge and belief, we are the first and only company to do so. The distributor will report to each publisher individually as to which of their reports were sold by us. This helps build trust and strengthens our relationship with publishers.
  • We have over 100,000 reports in our web store, and the number of reports in our portfolio is growing.
  • We have an agreement with a content management company that converts our reports into eBooks at extremely competitive rates.
  • Our company’s profit margins are extremely high. The average price of the reports we sell is $3,500, and we generate 30% to 50% in commission from the sale of each report.
  • The costs of our operations are extremely low. Many our employees are based in South Asia whom we pay between $500 to $1,000 a month. These people sell reports, write blogs, conduct email marketing, manage website, etc.


Thus, our revenues outstrip our expenses by a large margin. (Please note that while we have been selling reports, we have let the publishers do the fulfillment. Once we have the funding in place, we will be able to handle the fulfillment ourselves.)

Market Research Industry Overview

The business of market research distribution is defined by the presence of four mid-sized companies:


  • MarketResearch.com (based in the U.S.)
  • Research and Markets (based in Ireland)
  • Global Information Inc. (based in Japan)
  • Report Linker (based in France)


Market Analyst considers these four market research distributors as our major and direct competitors. All four of them are privately held. In our opinion, none of them has demonstrated sufficient aggressiveness in marketing, or innovation in product formats.


In addition to the four major resellers, there are about two dozen resellers that are more like mom-and-pop operations. To our knowledge, these resellers do not advertise, do not have direct sales, make little use of social networking outlets, and operate on a “me-too” strategy which will make it very difficult for them to survive, let alone grow.

Market Research Industry Size

There is no publicly available data on the size of the syndicated research market. However, a great deal of anecdotal evidence exists that can be used to derive a sense of how the market is evolving. For instance:


  • We know that there are over 1,000 publishers of syndicated market research, and we estimate that more than 300,000 reports are published every year. Most of these reports are sold through the distributor channels.
  • The syndicated research market ranges from global market research giants like The Nielson Company, J.D. Power & Associates (a unit of McGraw-Hill) and Gartner, to relatively smaller but well-known companies like IDG and Frost & Sullivan, down to even smaller, boutique publishers.

The syndicated industry research market is robust and offers significant growth potential. According to U.S. Bureau of Statistics, employment of market research analysts is projected to grow 23 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Employment growth will be driven by an increased use of data and market research across all industries.

Invest in Market Analyst

We're heralding a transformation in how market research is accessed.

We are unleashing a paradigm shift in how market research is accessed. By slicing and dicing research in discrete packages, we make research more affordable. This expands the reach of the research, generating more buyers and resulting in higher revenues.


Utilization of Funds

We believe Market Analyst is well-positioned to take-off. We have enough publishers signed up and enough reports available for sale that we can rapidly build up our volume. The investment being sought by us will be used primarily for marketing. We believe that even with modest funding, the sales of our reports will skyrocket, and the investors will start seeing the results quickly. 


Because of the advantages market research resale offers buyers, it is our view that the resale industry revenues are growing faster than the revenues generated by the publishers selling their reports directly to their clients. We believe that Market Analyst, because of its unique business model, will grow faster than the other resellers. Our goal is to become the top market research distributor globally.

Why We Will Be Successful

  • We sell reports (and chapters) in eBook formats for mobile access.To the best of our knowledge and belief, we are the first and only company to do so.


  • With over 25 years of experience in this industry, we are well-positioned to capitalize on its growth.


  • We have limited competition, as discussed in the section called Market Research Industry Overview.
