Founding Partner @ Bisology - Utilizing Business Intelligence and Business Analytics to help organizations achieved their desired future. Also, data, strategiest, and operational expert.
The greatest lesson I’ve learned is to use the huge amount of public data available to validate my business assumptions. It has helped me dispel many incorrect assumptions and identify pockets of opportunities that have made all the difference.
To formulate a strategy that is a match for the outcome you are trying to accomplish we would have to further understand your business model, the issues you are encountering, and many other business specific questions.
I would love to help and talk further about this.
The general rule is as follows:
1) Create a profile that identifies who your target customer is.
2) Estimate how many of those customers are in the region you are planning on targeting.
3) Estimate your demand rate. Is your product or service mission critical and every single target customer would need it or, is it a product or service that people would buy if they see it otherwise they would not go out of their way for it.
4) multiply step 2 and 3 above.
Estimating your market size is not an exact science and there are many business/sector specific variables to consider that would increase the accuracy of the analysis.
If you would like to talk about this further, do not hesitate to contact me.
