(May 21) Week 1- Basic Market Research- Market research blends consumer behavior and economic trends to confirm and improve your business idea. It’s crucial to understand your consumer base from the outset. Market research lets you reduce risks even while your business is still just a gleam in your eye. Effective market research helps businesses make insight-driven, informed decisions when planning, launching, managing or growing your business. Plus, market research enables business owners to ascertain the financial feasibility of a venture before committing substantial resources to its success.

This class was created at the request of previous attendees and clients to learn how to use the tools described previously, including case studies. Debbie will provide step-by-step instruction so you too can do research like a pro.
(June 4th) Week 3-Primary Market Research- The purpose of this session is to describe/explain in depth primary research tools (focus groups and surveys).
