Known by our Record

Impact Research has deep experience helping candidates win office, helping some of America’s largest corporations attain insight into their customer base or public perception, giving associations a clear understanding of the needs of their membership, and allowing international organizations to better understand the global issues they work on.

We care about the issues and we care about our clients.

U.S. Campaigns

Impact has helped elect Democratic candidates at all levels – from the White House and Congress to state houses and city halls. We seek to be an active part of a campaign’s strategic team, involved in message development, voter targeting, and real-time crisis management. We see ourselves as the “watchdog” of a campaign’s message, ensuring the campaign maintains the discipline necessary to target the correct message to the right voters. Beyond delivering accurate numbers, we’re hands-on, always accessible, and will be involved every step of the way to help our clients win.

ISSUE AND ADVOCACY WORK

Impact has partnered with groups like the Planned Parenthood, Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Family fund, national labor unions, healthcare reform advocates, and environmental organizations to conduct in-depth analysis of voter opinion on the most substantive public policy issues facing the country. In just the last couple of years we’ve helped such groups measure public opinion and devise and implement strategies on issues like healthcare reform, financial regulatory reform, net neutrality, internet gaming, labor union pensions, national tax policy, and improving turnout among younger voters. Given our in-depth experience in complex policy areas, we’re practiced in helping team members with a policy background turn their input and objectives into a workable research plan to both gauge public opinion and reach their strategic goals.

CORPORATE AND ASSOCIATION WORK

Impact works closely with corporate clients to help them identify and adapt to the rapidly changing marketplace. While their products and services are varied, our corporate clients have in common a need to think strategically about how they position themselves.  At Impact, we believe that every project requires a fresh eye and that our pre-conceptions have to be constantly tested against hard data.  Market research, brand development, and product positioning are all integral components to private sector success. We leverage the latest quantitative and qualitative research strategies to develop a detailed, multi-faceted plan to ensure our corporate clients remain a step ahead of the competition.
