Business Insights #5: Market Research

In this week's installment of Business Insights, Franchise Direct CEO Sean McGarry discusses the important area of Market Research. Sean states that Market Research is one of the first things you must do when starting up a new company. He warns against going for an industry on the basis that it is worth millions every year as this can often mean it is a competitive industry filled with companies operating on a high level of effiency and offering competitive prices.

Starting up your own company, you must be sure of how your offering is better than the current offering. This is the key aspect to your company's survival of its first year in the marketplace.
