Market Research for Startups
Extreme complexity is one of the startup’s distinguishing features because there is confusion regarding the product, the supply chain, the target consumer market, the business model and about every other part of the business.
Inability to be self-critical
In general, beginners in business feel that they have come up with this brilliant concept or a great solution that will change the world. The campaign fails because the vision of this innovative and amazing campaign was not shared with the target audience and the product does not resonate with the target market and gets an overwhelming reaction.
Competition and Customers
If the startup has no knowledge of the needs of their customers then the business will not solve a specific issue in the right manner. If the company does not engage in holding a conversation about the goods with their consumers, they may miss the ability to connect the goods to their needs and boost the product‘s chances of being competitive in the market. Until a thorough market competitiveness study is conducted, the business will not be able to magnify the consumer demand and future market growth.
A major part for a startup is to gain the capital by getting investors or banks to participate in your new concept and vision. Without proper marketing analysis, it’s hard to base and explain how the goods will be popular on the market and why a large sum of money from an investor is worth investing.
