We are Researchers

As independent information professionals (IIPs), members in this community of practice include both primary and secondary researchers.  

  • As primary researchers, we conduct interviews, surveys, and focus groups to get at the heart of clients' needs.
  • Our experts in secondary research scour the internet, high-value databases, and professional and grey literature to find the previously un-findable.

What do we research? Anything and everything, including companies and their competitors, markets, people, products, chemicals, patents, and more. We are experts at gathering, synthesizing, analyzing and sharing research.

What we have in common is the ability to find, analyze and share information in whatever breadth and depth is needed for clients to make decisions.

what our Members say

Marge King“AIIP is the one membership that I always renew because of the value I get from it. The private discussion list keeps me up-to- date on the latest and greatest office tools. I recently got a tip from the private list that allowed me to do something in 3 minutes that I thought would take days. That advice was worth every penny of my membership."

-  Marge King, InfoRich Group -  Fundraiser, Prospect Researcher, Grantwriter
