What is Marketing Analysis?

This piece offers our thoughts on what is Marketing Analysis?   Moving into a new vertical, geography or launching a new product, you need to understand how much opportunity there is and what it will mean for you. Such as:  

  • What are the implications of expansion to your business and long-term goals?
  • Keep up with the rapid technological advancements
  • How to put them to practical use either using a partner or as an in-house effort

Let’s be analytical

Market Analysis offers a holistic view of what is going on in your target markets, as well as:  

  • Helping create a strategy to develop implementation or integration
  • Understand who else does what you do?
  • How are they doing it better than you?
  • What could you improve generally or for a specific product or offer?

This analysis ensures you stand a better chance of not screwing things up. Wrong market size, competitor and growth information could provide poor strategic decisions. Like entering the wrong geography, not investing in a promising business company, or missing an attractive customer segment. It can be used in a number of ways like:

  • Target Market Analysis
  • Market Analysis for Business Plans
  • Market Analysis Reports
  • Channel Sizing and Segmentation
  • Competitor Landscape Analysis
  • Bench marking and Knowledge Management
  • Landscape Assessment
  • Market Sizing and Market Forecasting
