Know the Purpose
You should know the purpose of the research that you are conducting. There is no point if you do not have an end point and objective of the research in mind. You should know the demographics of the target market so that you can actually conduct market research that will give you the right results. There is no point of surveying for product of service that will not be used in the given area where the research has taken place and the results will be faulty.

Make the Plan
Once you have the above mentioned matters taken care of, make a complete market research plan. This will include inquiries via different channels from the targeted population. The plan will have questions that will be pertinent to the product or service for which the research is taking place. It’s a job that must be performed by professionals. Laying down a market research plan is not easy and needs a lot of attention to fine details.

Have the Resources
You must have the resources to conduct the survey. This includes both manpower and financial means. Ideally you will need trained professionals who do this for a living as they are less likely to make errors in collection of data as well as give authentic entries.
