Market Research
Market research comes in 2 main forms: PRIMARY and SECONDARY. Primary research is first hand knowledge gained from the market place using techniques such as focus groups and surveys; whilst secondary research uses published studies and reports available on-line or via a library and provides broad knowledge about your markets.

Finding out how your products or prices compare to your competition or what your customers really want from your product and services, can be a real wake up call and help shape the way you market your business. At the marketingshed, we can help you to gain valuable market insight by conducting small market research projects that meet your needs and help keep you ahead of the crowd. Alternatively, we can also point you in the right direction if you need a specialist market research for a large project and can even manage this relationship for you.
