Market Research for Business Plan
I'm an EveryWoman newby in the throes of getting my own business going. I feel pretty positive, despite the current economic climate, and just need to back up my positive feelings with hard facts in my business plan!
I'm wondering where I can find out about my market size for online retail, selling interior decoration - wallpapers and fabrics plus other home wares. Is there anywhere I can look to find this sort of thing out? Preferably cheaply if not free? Where I can see some actual numbers and data relating to competitors in my market that will support my business plan?
Or maybe I'm starting in the wrong way? All help and comments are gratefully received...
PS Thinking of pootling down to the British Library on Sunday, anyone had any success there?
