The Quad Cities Chamber, in partnership with Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, offers access to free market research tools to help your business grow by making smarter decisions through data analysis. The tools include:
- SizeUp is the Chamber's user-friendly online local market research tool that is accessible to anyone, anywhere there's Internet access. It is a custom-developed local business intelligence tool powered by a unique set of real-time databases, compiled to give you the information you need about local market conditions.
- If you want a deeper dive into market research on the Quad Cities region and beyond, come into the Chamber to access Business Information Growth (BIG). BIG is a collection of high-powered market research databases, including Acculeads, First Research, Hoovers Plus, LoopNet, Panjiva, Plunkett Research, and Reference USA, that gives you access to proprietary business information, global trade data, consumer demographics, and more.
Quad Cities Chamber member Michael Chronos of MC Curran Logistics utilizes BIG on a regular basis. Here is what he had to say, "I have attended several BIG training programs. Each time, I learn something new. This program has been incredibly helpful and resourceful and teaches you how to utilize a variety of databases that generate marketing leads. What is really helpful is not only the wealth of information but how you can drill down and target focus the leads to best meet your needs. I highly recommend this to anyone in business. The tool in invaluable, and I am very appreciative to the Chamber for having such a program."
