Here's a quick seven-step guide to teaching you the fundamentals of conducting market research for a start-up:
1. Establish your overall goal
First and foremost, make sure to clearly articulate the rationale for the research you're planning. Consider the most important information you're looking for and how you'll use your findings. What problem did you hope to solve through research? What are the findings going to be used for? Is it something you'll do on the inside or something you'll do on the outside?
2. Choose a Research Approach
The two most common approaches for market research are secondary and primary.
3.Acquire data on your target audience
Once you've determined your overarching research goal and preferred method of data collection, it's time to dig deeper into your target audience. Understanding your target audience can assist you in determining the best approach to secondary and primary research.
4.Formulate Your Research Questions
The value of your research can be made or broken by asking the right questions. The right questions can help to inform your overall strategy, but the wrong questions can derail your research and diminish its overall value.
5.Choose the Right Tools for the Job
Data analysis takes a long time. However, gathering information is only the first step; effectively evaluating it is also critical. Data collection and evaluation are both critical to the success of any research, so having the right tools on hand is essential.
6.Analyze the data
After gathering your primary and/or secondary data, it's time to slice and dice your research findings to extract relevant and applicable business insights.
7.Act on the data
Once you've sifted through the data, it's a good idea to create a research brief or report that includes both a high-level findings summary and a deep dive into your methodology, data, key findings, etc.
