“We are more than pleased with the project results from Rojo Research. I am most impressed with the robust nature of the platform and the ease with which you can drill down into specific market data; be it demographic, broadcast and media, avidity, merchandise or partner ROI.” comments Steve Mazurak, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The report submitted by Rojo was done in a very timely matter and will assist us greatly in better understanding our customers/fans and partners in our most important market. We will be exploring future market research opportunities with Rojo.”
