Finally, a few general tips for keeping up to date on what’s new and exciting in market research.

  • There are pros & cons to signing up for everyone’s newsletters, but if you can afford some space in your inbox there’s a good chance you’ll hear about free webinars, meet-ups and articles from colleagues in the industry, and especially industry organizations such as ESOMAR and the MRA (note, not all will be free, but there’s enough sprinkled in that we’ve found it’s worth sifting through to find).
  • Check out online training sites like Coursera and Skillshare. They don’t offer many (if any) market research specific courses, but there are great general business/marketing skills and many courses which you may find relevant and informative.
  • Stay curious! Keep your eyes and ears open, free educational opportunities are out there, and you’ll benefit any time you can take advantage.
