Market research helps you understand your customers, the demand for your services, and can help make your micro business a success. This seminar helps you to identify the tools and understanding you need to research your specific market.
 
What is marketing?
 
‘…the chances are that you are already carrying out more marketing than you think.’
 
‘Think about what you do… Your instincts tell you that getting to know what customers want on an individual basis, and providing it, is what will keep you in business.’

 
Marketing and the 7Ps, from Chartered Institute of Marketing.
