SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, October 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For any business, no matter what size, it's vital to have a clear and current understanding of the target consumer. There is a constant wave of factors that can affect a business's sales and lead to a drop in consumers. Market trends, consumer needs and shifts in the economy can all have a negative effect on businesses and stunt a brands' growth.

It's when businesses start to presume customers' buying habits that mistakes are made. Auscorp Connect Pty believe the secret to success is to ask anyone and everyone about their habits, opinions and experiences to gain a broad view of what the customer really wants, what's currently available, and what could be done differently. It may not seem like it, but conversations like these can be valuable free market research that could really help to establish a strong business model.
Ask the Customers
After asking a wide demographic, it's then a good idea for businesses to ask existing customers. Surprisingly, this can be done cost effectively. Free online surveys and social media platforms are a popular way for businesses to gain a large volume of honest feedback, whilst putting the leg work in and meeting with customers in person can collect great feedback and create a positive and caring brand reputation. By asking customers for their opinions, businesses will soon be able to identify common themes and issues that can then be addressed quickly.
Auscorp Connect Pty believes that although feedback is important, businesses should be aware that some customers may be telling them what they think they want to hear. The firm urge businesses to weigh up feedback against real data and activity.
Don't Limit the Target Market
When a business develops a product, it's only natural to have a target customer in mind, however Auscorp Connect Pty believe it's important for businesses to not limit themselves by only appealing to a very small demographic. The firm believe that many businesses will often find that their product or services have a wider more diverse appeal than first thought, and it's important to market to the needs of all consumers rather than just the original group.
