Who We Are.

We are strategic superheroes with the power to transform consumer truth into winning business strategies.

Like every superhero, we have a story.

We have had a front row seat in the theatre of consumer dynamics for nearly two decades. Based in Vancouver, Canada, the Lana Porter Group Inc. (LPG) was established in 2004 by Dr. Lana E. Porter. Lana and her team of superheroes offer the best of both worlds: the superior client service and agile working style of a boutique firm alongside the global reach and capabilities of a multinational company.

We see consumer truth.

What consumers say, and what they actually do, are often two different things. Whether a brand succeeds depends on the ability to see the difference. Our years of experience mean that we can see what others can’t.

We know that one size doesn’t f​it all.

The consumer journey is increasingly complex and dynamic. A successful brand must continuously adapt to this changing consumer landscape. We craft and create versatile research solutions that are tailor made for your target audience.

We can see the future.

Consumer trends are transient and only tell part of the story. By uncovering the underlying psychological needs behind those trends, we can see further into the future and help our clients achieve long-term success.

We are in it for the long term.

We know that after our job is done, yours is just beginning. We are in business with our clients for the long term and are always available for advice, counsel and brainstorming long after the research is over.

What We Do.

Market research is a tool that is only as good as the person using it. We know how to use the right tools, with the right people, to get the right answers for our clients.

Solving big business challenges requires transforming opinion into fact and elevating data into insight.

We have conducted over 300,000 surveys in 25 countries and 10 languages.

We design and manage all of our quantitative studies in-house and rigidly adhere to strict quality standards.

For complex business challenges, we provide advanced analytical solutions. We promise not to ”blind you with science” - our goal is to share the power that advanced analytics can offer.

  • International Research Programs
  • Customer Journey Mapping

At the heart of every business challenge are customer stories that hold the answers to your pressing business questions.

We have conducted over 4,000 focus groups in 15 countries and 10 languages.

Whether it’s bankers in London, Harajuku girls in Tokyo, marathon runners in Boston, or Millennials in Toronto, we know how to translate the voice of the consumer into strategic recommendations.

When knowing why is as important as knowing how many, hybrid research is the answer to your business questions.

We are the new hybrid generation – each of our team members is a quali-quant expert. We know how to integrate the “what” from quantitative research with the “why” from qualitative research.

Balancing the best of both quantitative and qualitative, hybrid methodologies provide a single, unified approach to address your business objectives.
