Market Research and Strategic Planning

Why do we need market research & strategic planning we're just a small business?

Most business owners say that they really understand their business and that no one knows better. So they make quick decisions about engaging the services of a web designer and have their web site designed without understanding what their true business objectives are for their website and how it will be used to meet business goals. 

So now they have spent an initial investment to build a shiny new designed website without fully understanding what the user experience should be for the website. They haven't considered how to promote it to the right target audience which may include different functions than offline.

Will their site include methods for ordering and contacting the business or educating people about their services and products? Should they try and publish fresh information about their business or market ?

Will their site work properly on mobile devices and tablets which now make up a majority of potential customers. Have they done proper competitors analysis to see which search terms they are targeting and checked if those keywords are worth targeting?

It is critical to do proper market research and plan all website strategies prior to building a site or prior to going forward with an existing website. This type of informational research should be done prior to building a new site, but also periodically in order to find new valuable insights into a market.
