Hello all,
     I have been working on my business plan and when it comes to researching the market, I have hit a road block.  I was told one place to start is to look up the Standard Industrial Code for the business I am going into, which I have done.  The next step, I was told, is to research Trade Associations which provide information on the market.  So far, all I have come up with are rather detailed and rather expensive online articles (to the tune of $300 or more.)  Of course I want as much information as I can get, but is it necessary to spend this much for the information I am looking for?  Does anyone know of better sites that may offer a cheaper or possibly free sample of information for the market I am researching?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks all.
