Who Wants What You Have to Offer?

Once you've defined your target market segment (for example: long-distance runners), you can use secondary research to determine the size of the segment and whether it's growing, shrinking, or stable.

  • If your target market is a type of consumer, use the data tables in Mintel reports to define the size of your defined market segments.
  • If your target market is a particular type of business (e.g., dairy farms), use an industry report from IBISWorld.

Read reviews on Amazon or Yelp or see what they are tweeting and facebooking about the competition.
