Do you wish you knew more about your customers, the competition, or your industry? It is time to start learning what your competition may already know. I’ve got three places to start learning — FOR FREE!
Here’s the first one, with lots of info available to the public, as well as custom research reports (by real live people!) available through a SBDC Consultant. Too many items to list, but the tan box on the right of their page is worth $$$. Check it out!
This one is for the B2C folks, who are always looking for more details about that super-elusive characteristic: DISPOSABLE INCOME. Check out this tool which is designed for basic location comparisons. You can get a glimpse of home values and household incomes, as well as traffic counts.
This resource is probably right under your nose and you may have even been there recently. That’s right – your public library!
Did you know that Greenville County Public Library has a Business Reference Librarian on staff? They offer assistance by phone, email or online chat. Best thing is that they subscribe to databases that none of us can afford, and most of it is available to you online! Getting to the data may require an active library card, but that’s easy!
Good luck, and let me know where you find the numbers you need.
