Thailand Market Research Companies
research about Thailand. Well in actual fact they often research into
other countries in South East Asia and Asia in general. A few years ago
I did a small job for an international market research company. The job
was easy and entailed calling major satellite operators in the region. I
did the job from my own office. The international calls were logged and
paid for by the market research company as was a handsome commission for
each interview that was completed.
While I was at University in London I worked for a market research
company. Most of the jobs were quite repetitive and boring, as is the
nature of market research surveys.
However occasionally we would get an
international business survey and of course with my language skills I
often landed with doing surveys in South East Asian countries like
Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
It was lunchtime UK time and 6pm in Bangkok. I needed just one more
survey to complete the job. I needed to interview a senior director of a
Pharmaceutical company in Thailand. My supervisor was listening in on my
calls and pushing me to get that 'last interview' I called several
numbers - damn they have all gone home.
I struck lucky and got the sweet voice of a secretary on the line. She
explained, in Thai, that her boss had gone home. She was intrigued at
some farang calling from London and able to speak Thai also. I spent the
next twenty minutes chatting up this lady. I asked about her family, her
boyfriends, what food she liked and finally managed to get her mobile
telephone number and a promise of taking her to dinner next time I was
in Bangkok. My supervisor was well pleased, he doesn't understand Thai.
So was I an extra ten quid for the interview and a twenty quid bonus for
a completed job.
