I decided to put together a post dealing with conducting Market Research. This is one of the most crucial steps in developing your startup, as it gives you insight on whether or not your idea is viable, and how to market your idea.

1. SurveyMonkey
You can put up long surveys with detailed questions about your target market and get targeted answers for just a buck.

2. Google Trends
Visit Google Trends for a quick forecast on what is trending in your industry. This is a gold mine for niche ideas and validation.

3. Hoovers
This is one of the more expensive options. You can pay for a demographic report for $800 or more and get a thorough analysis of your market and their habits.

4. ValiRep
This is a cheaper alternative to Hoovers. For just $99, you can get a detailed analysis of what your target market likes, websites they visits, and social media evaluations.
