    What market research did you do before starting a business?

      Hi there!
      I am doing a MBA school project on small businesses and am also thinking about my own business ideas. I hope to get some help from entrepreneurs here:

      We all know that before jumping into executing a business idea, we need to do some homework on market research (customers, competitors, market size, market growth...) I'm currently looking at census.gov, city-data, and sending out surveys to collect market data. There are also some market reports out there but they are prohibitively expensive.

      I wonder how you do the market research and how much you are investing in it? Please answer my anonymous survey at: http://www.impressity.com/Survey/sl.aspx?SurveyLinkId=nxohwrwsljtpokausqju

      You can also see what other entrepreneurs say in this survey. Thanks a lot for participation, really appreciate it!
