The Essentials of Marketing Research
A large part of marketing is understanding the world around you through reliable data. So, you’ve been asked to do some research – maybe to better understand your competition or your industry or your firm’s positioning. But where do you begin? Is Google the best option or are there other free marketing research options that you can use? When is using a paid research option your best bet? Or when should you use a consultant instead of spending hours or days finding answers yourself?
