Lunch and Learn – Researching New Markets on a Shoestring Budget

Lunch and Learn –  Researching New Markets on a Shoestring Budget
  • October 24, 2023
    1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Market research is often considered to be best suited to large businesses with even larger budgets.  But in reality every business needs to understand their market – and practical market research can be planned and undertaken in-house.  Indeed for small businesses it is best undertaken in-house so that the knowledge gained can be fully utilised and retained. Investing time in practical market research will always pay dividends.

This practical session will: 

  • identify the type of information you need 
  • highlight where you can find it and how you can gather it, and 
  • discuss how you turn that data into market insight, to facilitate better business decision-making

Time – Online between 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.

What to expect – One hour dedicated to a specific topic with time (10 minutes) at the end for Q&A. Afterwards you will receive a link to the presentation deck and a ‘how to’ checklist on the topic with the next steps so that you can implement what you have learned.
