I am wanting to set up a small business selling stuff online although I want to make sure I get pricing/goods right.
Does anyone know any really good methods of market research which doesnt involve asking on the street.
Contact your local Business Link for lots of free help and information on starting in business. They have guidance on various ways of doing market research and sometimes have advisors who specialise in internet business.
There’s a lot of research that you can do on-line by looking at the sites of businesses that sell similar products.
Don’t get too hung up on price. Even if people’s first question is how much, they’re usually more interested in the quality of the product or service you provide and whether it’s really suitable for them. As long as you can satisfy those needs for them, price is a secondary consideration.
