Marketing research is the process of validating the viability of your product or service.

The main function of a market study is to gather knowledge about prospects and existing members in an effort to learn how to best enhance their customer experience and build a better service. This allows you to grasp the latest trends, focus on the best market segment, and get a feel of your competition. In addition, it assists you in analyzing the perks and caveats of your solution while intuitively comprehending the value of it.

What Elements Should a Market Study Include?

To ensure business success, your approach must consider the following:

Does your company’s new solution actually fill a gap in the market? You need to know if your endeavour is worthwhile based on the relevant market indicators. The business case analysis helps to determine the most profitable business model.

What alternative solutions are available?  If your solution has a significant advantage now, do you know how it can maintain this? Competitive analysis is dedicated to monitoring and understanding the current and future steps of your competition. This business intelligence allows you to anticipate challenges and prepare a reactive positioning strategy to ensure you are at an advantage.

When you define clear targets and identify the audiences who will benefit the most, you establish a level of market segmentation that efficiently directs attention. This avoids the counterproductive action of wasting resources by investing in an audience that has no interest in what you are selling.

What are the needs of your target market? Gathering market requirements with stakeholder analysis will definitely help you to answer this question and achieve success.

Considering the market needs, can you adjust your solution to make it more appealing to potential clients? Functional specification documents are used to describe the capabilities and appearance of an offering. These documents essentially showcase user interface, user input, and additional usability criteria that need to be kept in mind when developing your product or service.  R&D (Research and Development) teams require this as a reference before beginning to work on your company’s solution.
