Market Research: How to Find Out What Your Ideal Customers Really, Really Want

Market Research: How to Find Out What Your Ideal Customers Really, Really Want

A few weeks ago, I was listening in on the #QuirkyBiz Twitter chat and this question popped up:

How the heck do I find out what my ideal prospects really want, who they are and where they hang out?

Most of the other quirky biz owners echoed that sentiment, so I knew it would make a perfect blog topic.

And guess what? The rest of the Word Carnies agreed. So this month’s topic is: Market Research.

Let’s get started, shall we?
