Market_research_questions_question_slide_deck

  Asking the right questions: how to design market research questions that actually get you the information you need. Many new social entrepreneurs think that market research is easy; just pull together a few friends or colleagues, ask them their opinions and ta da!…you have the information you need to build a commercial empire. Not really. Asking a question of a potential customer is actually more of a science than a conversation. This course will help you refine your market research by asking the right questions. You’ll understand how to write clear concise questions that restrict bias, avoid ambiguous answers, prevent leading the respondent, clarify assumptions, and get information that you really need to help you make business decisions. .helpButton { display: none; } body.bg { opacity: 0; -moz-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -webkit-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -o-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -webkit-animation-fill-mode: forwards; animation-fill-mode: forwards; } @keyframes cssAnimation { to { opacity: 1; } } @-webkit-keyframes cssAnimation { to { opacity: 1; } } @import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Fjalla+One|Raleway); @import url(https://socialenterpriseinstitute.ca/styles/learnUponMin.css); Read More
