#551 Why You Need to Conduct Research

The weekly marketing podcast, More than a Few Words is hosted by Lorraine Ball and features conversations with professionals from around the world.

Many business owners assume they know the answer. They believe they don't need research, but Lori Highby thinks that's a mistake. When you are making assumptions, it is like shooting darts in the dark. You may hit the target, but the majority of those darts are going to hit the wall or break a window.

If you start with the facts, really get into the head of who your target customer you can craft a plan based on data and insight.

Now you have a strategy to get the right message in front of the right people so they want to do business with you.
