Fast-changing political, economic, social and technological factors combine to create a climate where only those businesses that truly understand their target market will survive and thrive.
Don’t Put Your Business at Risk
There’s a certain risk involved in every business decision – but why make that risk greater than necessary? The challenge affects businesses both large and small, global and local. Take Kodak. In 1988, the company employed 145,300 people. By late 2009, that had dropped to 19,900 – despite the fact Kodak invented the digital camera. They just didn’t see the market opportunities. How well do you understand your market place, and the changes taking place? Can you be confident you wouldn’t make the same mistake?
Run Your Own Market Surveys
We’ve all seen businesses open and close within a short time, when it was obvious they had misjudged their market. Yet market surveys can be done easily, and don’t necessarily have to be complex or expensive. A simple survey can often give you all the information you need, and can even make the difference between business success and failure. If you undertake regular market surveys, you will better understand what your competitors are doing, and how your market is responding and evolving. You will be able to make informed decisions, make the most of opportunities, and protect your business and your staff.
