Market Research

Whatever your business or interests, market research is an important element to learning more about your subject. If you have a new product, you want to know what your target consumer group thinks of it - do they like it? What do they like about it? Is it better than similar products? Why or why not? Most importantly, would they buy it? Of course, this is "simple" market research, but it is essential to the success of most businesses.

When it comes to the things we cover here, this same research and procedures can be applied to finding out all sorts of things for various reasons. If you are writing a book on the Supernatural, you might want to compile some information on what percentage of people believe in it, along with what they have in common - just a for-instance. Or maybe you are trying to drum-up funding for an investigation and want to compile some information that will help convince backers to invest.

Follow the link above for more information and remember, a little creativity can reap you results you never thought possible from the most seemingly mundane of sources.
