Business research is not needed in regards to the variety of insurance products GEICO sells. While the cornerstone of their product is car insurance, the company also offers specialized products for motorcycles, recreational vehicles, all-terrain vehicles, boars and classic cars. In addition, GEICO also offers life insurance, homeowners insurance, mobile home and condo insurance, renters insurance, flood insurance and temporary overseas policies. Geico’s newest offering is an identity theft insurance product.
Business research is needed in the area of product-type quality. Consumers make purchase decisions based on the relationship between cost and quality. When a hungry consumer purchases a pair of $10 shoes from Wal-Mart, his expectations regarding comfort and durability will be different than they would be if he were to purchase a pair of $150 Nike shoes. Consumers compare quality and features when deciding between brands. The “quality” of an insurance product is also intangible.
