About

To reach, connect with and sell to your target market, you need to understand who they are and what will attract their attention so they will buy your product or service.
 
Learning about the marketplace does not have to be an expensive or time consuming process.  It is not limited to large companies. It can save you time, money and headaches as you make plans to launch your own business.
 
Learn about the market research basics -- 
  • secondary research where you rely on outside sources like industry reports or government statistics and 
  • primary research where you conduct your own research with customers and potential customers.
