Steps In the Marketing Research Process

a) Identifying the informational need

First step in marketing research is identify and define the information need.

b) Searching for secondary data

Market information that has been previously compiled.

c) Collecting primary data

d) Interpreting the data

Methods of summarizing and simplifying information for users include tables , graphics , charts and etc.

I think the hardest step of marketing research process is collecting primary data because we must gathered directly from customer / end user that need expensive cost , a lot of time consuming , and to accumulate large volume of data and huge volume of population is very difficult.The main fear if primary data is not always feasible.
