Gathering information is key to marketing success. For businesses interested in selling products to teens, Teenage Research Unlimited (TRU) is an invaluable research partner. The marketing research firm has been studying teen habits since the 1980s, and data collected from TRU’s focus groups and surveys reveal the ways in which teens are influenced by reference groups and each other. According to analysts, the teenage consumer segment will continue to grow in importance, especially in the age of cell phones, iPods, and social networking.
