Webinar: How to run market research
Market research is one of the most important processes, but not the easiest one. In fact, you can easily get lost in a lot of information very quickly. Watch the webinar to learn how to run market research!
Market research is the process of gathering information about your business’s buyers personas, target audience, and customers. It helps to identify and analyze the needs of the market, the market size, and the competition. The aim is to determine how viable and successful your product or service would be, and/or is, among your audience.
In order to be successful, you must have a deep understanding of who your buyers are, your specific market, and what influences the purchase decisions and behavior of your target audience members.
