Market research usually represents some form of "value proposition sensitivity analysis" to help quantify priority / focus.

An analysis conducted as inexpensively as possible
to prioritize your value to a given set of markets and those markets value to you.
Technology is just a catalyst at times for fundamental forces already present.
Scott Cook, Founder of Intuit (Quickbooks)

First improve your customers profit and you will improve yours.
More simply stated ... which clients will benefit or profit most from you and which clients are the easiest or least expensive (most profitable) for you to serve?
What top ten criteria, questions, or key phrases when answered by a prospect client group will give you an indication of their degree of sensitivity to your value proposition?
Market Focus

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done.”

–Steve Jobs, Apple
are a nice and free way to watch news on keywords and phrases that reflect the need you serve and the appeal of your value proposition.
Market Research Gives Focus
What is a value proposition sensitivity analysis?
"SEO" Search Engine Optimization
The continuous analysis and processing of choosing keywords and keyword phrases that are the most relevant and discriminating for your unique brand and value proposition as represented in the digital marketing environment.
There is no end to tools and companies that can help organizations with their SEO.
Do your homework. Many scam services abound in SEO.
Are you confident in your focus?
Will you and your targets easily make money?
How do you find customers?
How do they find you?


In the digital economy keywords and phrases are critical for both outbound and inbound marketing.
Google Analytics is a great place to start and it's free. AWStats is free also. They both plug-in to your website. Ask your webmaster to set-up and give you access.
How important are keyword phrases?

Marketing 101 - The Power of Words (1:48).
Modern Marketing Is Here. Where Are You? (1:46)
Many traditional mediums are simply not working anymore. The digital mediums available are growing exponentially. Software, software integration, simplification, and automation are keys for an organizations future success. This is a video of a vendor called HubSpot pursuing these aims.
let's look at our two paths
Outbound Marketing
Inbound Marketing
It's the easiest to understand but also the most problematic as well as the most expensive in the modern marketing environment. This 1 minute video will orient you to the major outbound marketing techniques we know best. Don't worry, we will talk Inbound approaches next.
Let's begin with Outbound Marketing.
What is Inbound Marketing (1:03)
Two Key Takeaways:

When is the last time you bought from a door-to-door salesman, or a cold caller? Look at all the ways you and other people block outbound efforts. Netflix gives you TV episodes without commercials, DVRs allow you to fast forward through commercials, telemarketing is virtually shutdown with "do-not-call" lists. E-mails are increasingly de-listed from websites.

SPAM laws prevent you from buying e-mail lists.

Direct mail is increasingly expensive as tradeshows are.
#1: Traditional outbound marketing is dead.
Embrace this reality and adjust your outbound campaigns.
Take Away #2: Outbound strategies need to feel like inbound to your clients.
How do we effectively execute Outbound Marketing then?
Outbound techniques need to tie to your inbound efforts.
Inbound client contact is the first indication that a prospect may want relationship with you.
In short, outbound efforts need to create incentive and confidence for a RELATIONSHIP not a sale
So... outbound marketing should have the aim of creating valuable relationship.

Be legitimately helpful, useful, transparent ... create truly valuable relationships with no strings attached.
ACTIVE market research

Getting intimate, honest, and engaging feedback on your current offering and future prototypes is critical for success.
This is NOT an exhaustive presentation of market research methods or e-tools...

OBJECTIVITY is key then in market research. No duh right?

Well remember human nature defies logic daily. Technology must be secondary and is not a substitute for objectivity from the heart. Today's e-technology only accelerates research results ... false or real.
80% of businesses believe they exceed customer expectations, only 20% of customers agree...hmmm
PASSIVE market research
like Google Analytics, embedded search queries in social media offerings, and other passive online observation methods help business owners maintain a current pulse on their market and competitive space.
There is a host of online survey tools, forms, quiz builders, etc. (many with free basic packages) that make active data collection and analysis easier than ever before.
Begin FREE.

Inform first.

Sell last!

marketing and way to grow confidence / relationship is sheer performance excellence.
Social Media enables you to fuel and grow relationships like never before. Fuel and grow confidence with not only your client and prospect base but access their network and their network's network.
Inbound marketing begins with setting up as many communication portals where your target markets can find, communicate, and latch on to you.
There are too many Inbound "latches" or portals to cover in this Prezi ... two big categories to cover that need to be set-up and managed ...

What ever conduits or latches for relationship you set-up they must be maintained.

Particularly critical for geographic based businesses, all businesses need to have solid coverage in their local online directories. All virtually have a basic free listing.

Network marketing (not Amway) creates critical visibility.

Team Work (0:32)
This is a short fun video showing the power of network e-marketing and back linking. When people say links are the foreign "currency" of the internet, this video portrays the value of "linkage" quite well. Links are a form of partnership in the digital age.

Suggestion #1: Provide such valuable online content, that people create links to you. These are called back links.

Suggestion #2: Digital communication needs to become part of your mobile lifestyle not an item on the do list.
Suggestion #3
Carefully set-up affiliate marketing.
In closing, the key for success is to stay aware of change, embrace it, or be overtaken by it.

Keyword / Keyword Phrase Optimization and Management

Most outbound and inbound marketing are digitally delivered and tagged. These tags are your keywords, and really your sub-brands in which you connect and create relationships. Keywords are effectively short hand for what is known as "marketing messaging".
Whether inbound or outbound your keywords are critically important.
We don't "catch" confidence

Why Internet Visibility Is Critical
Google's Perspective on "Mobile"
The complexity of effectively running a marketing function in the future digital environment is growing. As a CPA is needed to help business owners manage a complicated tax code, professionals marketers are especially needed to manage the complicated digital market code.

The future is exciting but in many respects it is not getting easier.
Very interesting thesis as to how some of the best companies have value propositions with a totally different perspective than the norm. A few moments (not weeks of expensive consulting) on clearly establishing your "why", your "vision" might be worthwhile.

Five Star Customer Experience (1:07)
Whether we want to learn how to manage internet information or not, our customers are leveraging it like never before. A business will be scored and reviewed whether they want to be or not. Maintaining a"5 Star" score is not just nice but critical. In the digital age you pay much faster when you slack on customer service.
Using old 2010 data:
2.1B internet users
97% of consumers use online media when researching a purchase
87.8 billion monthly worldwide searches on Google
