Identify and reduce risks 

Market research is an excellent opportunity to find and reduce potential risks with your products and services. For example, it can be used to understand whether what you’re offering truly has a place in the market and is what your target audience wants. By having this more in-depth information, you can mitigate any risks you would typically have taken when launching a product. This doesn’t just apply before you introduce a new product or service but also during the development stage. You can use market research to get initial customer thoughts and reactions so that if any risks or problems do arise, you have time to resolve them before launch. 

Make more informed decisions 

Speculating or being reliant on your gut instinct doesn’t always lead to the best business decisions. Market research offers more assurance and factual data that you can use as a guide to support your marketing campaigns. For example, the research can help you to: 

  • If the evidence suggests there is scope for a new campaign, choose a different consumer base to target. 
  • Determine which channels work best for your audience and ensure they’re included in your strategy. 
  • Find design elements that resonate with your audience to create a compelling and memorable brand persona. 
  • Decide whether to open a new retail location.  
  • Adapt your pricing to maintain margins and appeal to customers. 
  • Decide whether a particular product should be modified or discontinued.
