Most of your marketing research will fit into 5 or 6 categories: Surveys, Focus Groups, Interviews, Observations, Secondary Research, or Experiments/Field Trials. We will not go into specifics for each research category on this particular blog. Regardless of the marketing research methods that are used, you need to uncover who your customers are or will be, you need to uncover what the demand is for your products or services, you need to know every competitor in the marketplace, and you need to know the market share for each company in your industry categories.
You need to define your location with a description of all advantages and disadvantages. I would include the operating hours and scheduling in this section. You must develop a unique selling point for your business. You will need to provide details about every product/service that you provide and give their features/benefits/values.
