 Most people today engage in business operations due to having the next step in their career as of others it is a thought that always runs in mind. But having a business idea is not enough, conducting market research before starting up a business and creating value for the product.

A big number of business owners fail to obtain most certain statistics on market share, number of competitors in the industry, number of their customers, product research and demand needed in the market, and supply they can offer to the market.

Today I will give you tips on how you can conduct marketing research for your new business without using a lot of time and resources. 

 

Identify your goals and objective

 

 

Know what you are looking for in your research, your aim should be specified in such a way that it is possible to measure when it has been achieved. The main objective of the research is to explore the unknown and unlock new possibilities. 

 

Participants identification 

This part is when a business owner pinpoints potential customers, specific competitors locally and nationally, know what they do and how they do it. Participants could be government, middlemen, rental agencies, tenants, insurance, the national building acts, national land Act.

 

SWOT Analysis 

 

 

Is defined as an acronym for Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threat. It is one of the effective market research analysis techniques, that helps in the evaluation of organization performance in the market.

  • Strength. Ask yourself these questions, what do you do well? What are your strongest assets? How are your products or services better than competitors? What is your unique selling point? How efficient is your workforce?  
  • Weakness. For the new business, it is likely to face the problem of entrance in the market, however, you should survive. Know what you should avoid, improve, and what you do badly. After knowing your weaknesses, you can watch, listen and learn from others.

 

 

 

  • Opportunity. It is the problem that gives opportunity! Seeing problems in the external environment and then brainstorm how you can bring a solution to that problem. Are your competitors not successful in meeting customers` demands? if yes can you target those customers?
  • Threats. Look at your competitors, what are they doing? What are their means of storage, product quality, and suppliers? How do they reach their customers? Are there any changes to your product or service? Are changes in technology going to affect your business?

 

Market Size 

A new entrant will have to measure the likelihood of products or services within a given market. Calculating market size, you need to understand your targeted customers, assessing competitors’ sales and market share through individual interviews, focus groups, or surveys. 

 

Economic and demographic data

Demographic data refers to socioeconomic information expressed statistically about characteristics of the population and customers you will serve. Studying the demographic of your area will assist a new business to understand the purchasing power, age, gender, income level, employment, education level and all this helps in knowing who likes your product, how well it is selling, and what areas are most popular for your product.

 

 

Decide, Monitor and Extract

After collection of all the above data, decisions will be made on where to locate your entity, what suppliers to buy from, what pricing strategy to use if it is cost-plus, price penetration, price skimming, or competition-based pricing. What marketing strategy to use, if it is online or offline. 

Market research tells you if something you didn`t know before, were right or wrong, market research can tell you about something that wasn’t on your radar, it is an investment, not a cost, it helps you plan for profitable growth.
