The Market Map

Our Market Maps go beyond keywords and sentiment to reveal the motivations and needs of consumers in any category.

We build them from the bottom up through human analysis. This enables us to understand not only what someone is saying, but why and what they hope to achieve by saying it as well. We find the emotional triggers and rational contexts that cause people to join the conversation and provide powerful insights into their behavior.

Each Market Map reveals the key themes we call Talk Drivers that attract and compel people to participate in the conversation. 

The Market Map: a complete structure of meaning.
