About Us | Ruby Cha Cha

About Us


People often ask us how we got our name. It’s very simple. Ruby is the colour of passion, enthusiasm and energy and Cha Cha is the dance – fun, spirited and memorable. We are fiercely independent, and innovative, harnessing the power of the people, experience and context for better decision making.

OUR STORY

Here at Ruby Cha Cha, we are driven by a spirit of passion and creativity, which is crystallised in our name, our culture and even our office. Creativity with purpose drives our working style, ‘infecting’ our projects with creative thinking and exciting outcomes for consumers, customers and clients.

We exist to help you achieve your brand or customer potential, from getting up close and personal with focus groups or ethnographic observations of customer experiences and moments of truth, through to concept development, market segmentation, research and advertising, we use our knowledge and skills to provide you with fresh and actionable insight.

While we are based here in Australia, we have the scope and expertise to deliver brand market research solutions such as focus groups, quantitative and qualitative research, across the globe. To see some of our work, simply take a look at our Case Studies page.

What we do: Creative research design, insight with edge, recommendations you can action.

Many of our clients can’t wait to tell us how our research has helped them achieve consumer confidence and growth – driving sales, building brands, satisfying customers, improving performance and growing value. We often get feedback from consumers as well, saying how much they enjoyed our groups, our online communities and our workshops.

We work across three pillars – People, Experiences and Culture, from helping clients with customer segmentations and buyer personas, through to understanding pathways to purchase, and moments of truth, through to exploratory insights on the culture of personalisation or on the go breakfast culture. We don’t do fluffy; we don’t do dull; we don’t do superficial.

The difference is in our practice.

We are talking of creativity and innovative methods with purpose. Every project we do is about turning consumer insight or exploration into ideas, concepts, communication and innovation recommendations that you can start working with right now. We even have a crack at writing the strategy for you, if that is what you want.
