Today’s marketing environment is faster-paced than ever. It is critical to have research partners that can be flexible, quick on their feet, and able to adapt with ease.

Asking business questions that make you stop, think and focus. Adding a little fun here and there as well. That is Joy Lynn, Inc.
“Joy Lynn is the most valuable qualitative researcher I have ever used. She not only is a good interviewer and listener, but comes at issues from deep experience as a marketer, brand manager, and copywriter. If I rated every qualitative resource that I have used in my 40-year career on a 1 to 10 scale, Joy Lynn would rate a 12, true value added vs others.”
