Who We Are
Award-Winning Market Research
We are a team of scientists and experts in market research. We are also an award-winning market research company, who work with top global brands to provide reliable, scientifically accurate, and meaningful insights.
Our staff have over 50 years’ combined experience in psychology and neuroscience. So, you can trust us with your market research needs. We offer academically validated solutions for predicting consumer behaviour. This we do by providing an implicit method that helps us understand subconscious drivers and motivations. It is important to realise that Split Second has developed its own research platforms to speed up project development and delivery. This means we do not rely on third party technology. More importantly, out platforms are based on implicit response testing and so are based on gut feelings that consumers find difficult to articulate. Because of this we can have a more accurate understanding of human decisions and behaviour.

Understand, Analyse, Boost
Our purpose is to arm brands with reliable data and analytics in order to meet their desired goals. These might be to boost sales, evaluate the potential of a new product, to discover exactly why people buy their products, or to improve their brand positioning.
We are on a mission to change the way consumer perception and attitudes are captured, without prejudice and, therefore, closer to actual behaviour. Our mission can only be achieved through close partnerships with brand managers, agencies and consultants who share our passion for deeper insights. The deeper insights we deliver aim to aid decision-making, increase growth, and maximise profitability.
The Bridge Between Brand and Consumer
Our promise is to significantly reduce the truth gap between what consumers say they will do and what they really do. We are also client-focused and here to help you answer any research question you may have, with reliable, informative, and useful insights. We understand the problem from your perspective as well as the consumer’s perspective, and aim to act as the bridge between brand intentions and consumer actions.
