Interested in creating research for understanding a business or for publication? To create real research, you have to either have data or be willing to pay to have it procured. A company called AYTM enables you to do it yourself or you can pay them to conduct the entire study.
Online Market Research
For example, if interested in the wedding niche you could create an AYTM campaign that questions how respondents plan to spend their wedding budget, and limit responses to be coming from those planning a wedding within the next 12 months.
This data can then become multiple pieces of content. They also provide online research quotes so you know what you will be in for before committing to a study.
