TURF Analysis or Total Unduplicated Reach and Frequency Analysis, is a statistical research methodology that enables the assessment of potential of market research for a combination of products and services. It analysis the number of customers reached by a particular communication source and how often does that happen.
With products and services being launched by organizations regularly and new markets being explored day in and day out, it becomes trivial to leave no stone unturned to make sure the products are well-received in new markets.
For instance, if a chocolate manufacturing company wishes to launch a new chocolate flavour, it’s important to know whether it will work with their target market. TURF analysis is a powerful statistical analysis tool that can be used to get answers for these questions:
Initially used for analysis of media campaigns, TURF analysis has developed into being applied in various segments like product, line and distribution analysis.
QuestionPro offers TURF analysis for multiple choice/ multiple answer questions. The TURF simulator produces optimized options for maximized reach, reach denotes the piece of the audience that selects a particular option.
Let’s take a scenario based example where an organization wants to understand which are the mediums from where maximum products are being sold, in order to optimize their functioning in all those medium.
The multiple choice question is, “Where do you purchase our products?”
For better understanding of what the customers prefer, we will run a TURF analysis on this question.
It will generate a list of Start Reach, Completed Reach, Respondent Reach and Count. In this case,
Top/ Down Reach is a method to calculate the reach for either the entire database or for a segmented data. You can review the various modes that users prefer for the purchase of your product.
Select one or more than one options that you want to be evaluated for unduplicated reach. to this sentence
This will produce the total recorded responses, reach count and the market share you can achieve by focusing on the option. In this, considering the options we’ve selected, you can obtain 40% market share in a recorded response bank of 100.
QuestionPro has a TURF simulator tool that permits that review of all possible options under a simulation count. In this case, we’ve kept the simulation count 2.
Results are produced from the highest to lowest market share of combinations.
Price Modelling: Every business has budget constraints. You can allot a budget to the options and the system will stimulate options that fit the bill for your budgetary requirements.
You can also optimize the budget for desired results. In case you want to acquire 25% reach with your alternatives, the following option should be given maximum importance.
There are ample number of product options for the customers, it’s you as the management of an organization, who has to manage what to offer the market next, keep a tab on the current offerings and bring about changes in the functioning, if required.
TURF is used where a company seeks to understand which set of products or the subset will have most penetration in the market. Evaluate “what-if” scenarios based on market realities using the Simulator and calculate all possibilities with TURF analysis.
