RESEARCH
METHODOLOGY
RESEARCH METHOLOGY

Fundamental to the success of any formal marking research project is sound research
methodology. A research design purely and simply the framework or plan for a study that
guides the collection and analysis of the data.

Method of Data Collection :

The research was conducted using primary as a source of information and the method
adopted was 'surveying'. Survey is the most commonly used of primary data collection in
market research. This widely used of its extreme flexibility.

Survey research is a systematic gathering of data from respondents through questionnaires.


The purpose research is to facilitate understanding or enable prediction of some aspects of
behaviors of the population being surveyed. A questionnaire is a formal list of questions
to be answered in the survey.

The questionnaire formed contained direct question, which were both open-ended and
close-ended. Among close-ended question, again both dichotomous and multiple choice
questions were used. The questions were framed keeping the objective of research in mind
and in such a way that they are able to extract the required information from the
respondents.

Observation method was also used. In it, the factors around the respondents wee keenly
observed e.g. space, potential for expansion etc. They were noted down as 'comments'
which proved very useful while analyzing the data.
OBJECTIVE OF RESEARCH

Toshiba as per its new marking strategy increase its presence in all the segments needs to
generate a database. As soon as the database is in place, the strategy of telemarketing will
be used to prospect customers and there by extend market share.
With this objective in mind a survey was conducted in KANPUR city. A questionnaire was
framed by the researchers which asked regarding their requirements and future plans.

MAIN OBJECTIVE:
Comparative study of VISHAL MEGA MART with BIG BAZAAR.
SUB OBJECTIVES:
The analysis has revealed inter alia the following information:
 Segment wise prospective customers.
 Preferred buying options.
SPANCO PROCESS

To find a customer is no easy for a company which has such a wide range of product &has
to cover a wide field.

Due to wide range of product and wide area to cover "VISHAL MEGA MART” strategy
called "SPANCO PROCESS". In the process:

S – Suspecting
P – Prospect Validation
A – Approach
N – Negotiation
C – Close
O – Order

Suspecting: It is the fist stage of SPANCO PROCESS. In this stage, company suspects
where is the customer. Suspect process is done through telephone directory, association
directory, cold suspecting and carpet coverage in cold suspecting, company send their
executive to various organisation and collected the data through interview or
questionnaire. According to condition of organization. In carpet coverage, they decided the
whole population into a number of samples and maximum unit of each sample is VISHAL
MEGA MART often does their suspect work through cold suspecting.
SAMPLING PLAN
The Sampling plan was designed as follows:

 Sampling Unit : As already stated the survey was to be conducted in four market

segments. These segments were identified as:


• : Youth
• : Professionals
• : Senior citizen
• : Children

The feasibility of the sample unit comprising these segments was adjudged by the
insight regarding the workload and capability for capital investment. Care was taken in
choosing only those centers where document processing was prevalent.
 Sample Size: To gather information which could form a reliable database. The

sample size was as follows:


• Upper class customers - 50
• Upper meddle class customers - 41
• Meddle class customers - 39
• Upper lower class - 28
• Lower meddle class - 15
• Lower class - 08
• COLLECTION OF DATA

The task of data collection begins after a research problem has been defined and research
design is chalked out. While deciding about the method of data collection to be used for
the study; the researchers should keep in mind two types of data i.e. Primary and
Secondary data.

The primary data, are those which are collected afresh and for the first time, and thus
happen to be original in character. The secondary data on other hand are those which have
already been collected by someone else and which have already been passed through the
statistical process. The data used for the present research is primary data. The different
methods that are used for collecting primary data are as follows:

A) Contact Method:
The 'contact method ' considering the short coming was selected to personal interview ing.
This method being versatile was arranged interviewing as it made concerned approach to
the respondent.
B) Observation Method:
The present investigation was done on the basis of making note of behaviour and gestures
of the target customers.

C) Questionnaire Method:
The method of data collection is quite popular and is being adopted by research workers,
private individuals and organization.
D) Schedule Method:
The method of data collection is very much like the collection of data through
questionnaire, with little difference which lies in the fact that schedules are being filled in
by the enumerates who are specially appointed for the purpose, these enumerators go to
the respondents along with the schedule and put up the question..Inferences are drawn on
the answers given by them.
LIMITATIOS

1. The information disclosed by the respondent may not be very accurate.

2. At some places difficulty faced in obtaining the information due to absence of the
proprietor.

3. Unwillingness on the part of few respondents to disclose the information as per the
questionnaire.

4. Indecisiveness on the part of the respondents regarding some questions,


hence difficulty faced in recording and analyzing the data.

I learn many technical, behavioral, and managerial aspects of industry. In my

potential customers.

6. Company should plan and organize customer-Relationship Development

programs.

7. Company should make a check of its administrative expenses.

Future” – the word which signifies optimism, growth, achievement, strength,


beauty, rewards and perfection. Future encourages us to explore areas yet
unexplored, write rules yet unwritten ; create new opportunities and new

learn, unlearn and re-learn, our ability to evolve.

We, in Future Group, will not wait for the Future to unfold itself but create
future scenarios in the consumer space and facilitate consumption because
consumption is development . Thereby , we will effect socio - economic
development for our customers, employees, shareholders, associates and
partners.

and when they need.

We will not just post satisfactory results, we will write success stories.

We will not just operate efficiently in the Indian economy, we will evolve it.
We will not just spot trends, we will set trends by marrying our understanding
of the Indian consumer to their needs of tomorrow.

It is this understanding that has helped us succeed. And it is this that will help us
succeed in the Future. We shall keep relearning. And in this process, do just one
thing. Future plans as follows-
