Conducting market research is a great way to understand more about your market, and what it entails. You will be able to utilise the information that you have gathered when deciding how to proceed with your idea, whether this is through further research, or by looking at how you can refine your initial plan.
There are only so many resources available for you to carry out research on your target market, so it is important that you allocate proper time and resources in order not only conduct the right research but also implement the findings into actionable results.
How to Conduct Market Sizing.
Qualitative research includes face-to-face interviews with members of your target customer base, as well as also other sources such as smartphone apps and video sites. This type of research gives you the unique advantage to obtain first hand information from all different types of potential customers. You can obtain information regarding their needs, wants and opinions which will give you a more accurate image of what they would be looking for in a product or service.
Quantitative research relies on the use of the internet to collect data from custom surveys. This is useful to scale the market fast and effectively. It is a matter of asking questions that can be answered with a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’, but the results are more representative rather than defined by personal interpretations.
Comparative analysis provides you with information on how your demographic compares to others. This research helps you find out if your target market stands out in some way from its competition, or whether there are ways in which they are similar.
Actual sales figures provide you with concrete information about the size of your target market, as well as information about your competitors. This shows you whether or not your business will be able to compete in the market, and what you need to do in order to increase its chances. This is highly important when looking at market sizing in business.
Thoroughly completing market research can be difficult due to time constraints, but there are many sources that can help you with this process. The internet is the best source for finding information about your target audience, and it is easily accessible. You can find out information through online searches, social media discussions and forums that people have created on the topic of interest. You can also find relevant information from other businesses that are already established in the market.
If you are looking for a more detailed look at your demographic, then it is important to carry out qualitative research. This will help you get a closer understanding of your target market, and how it works. You will be able to contact potential customers through face-to-face interviews, who will give you honest and true information regarding their needs and wants which you can use to inform scale of operation. This type of research can be costly but there are many tools that allow for this type of research to be conducted effectively.
