Interview with Mike Moffitt – Certified Public Accountant

Before venturing out on your next big idea do some market research first. Gather information about your potential customers: demographics, purchase strength, likes/dislikes, etc. Get to know your customer or client better than they know themselves before you try to sell anything to them. You should also have a working knowledge of the existing competition and how you plan on entering the market. Writing a marketing plan is recommended as it will force you to think through what you are selling, who you are selling it to, and how you will sell it (positioning, branding, personal selling, advertising, etc.).
