General Business Research

Many owners of small and medium-sized businesses “fly by the seat of their pants” when it comes to understanding their customers’ needs, the competitive environment, their own levels of customer service, effectiveness of their marketing programs and advertising campaigns, etc. Others have fairly good informal procedures for making some of these determinations. Many cannot afford the cost of hiring outside consultants to conduct research for them. BBER can assist these owners in devising and modifying methods for obtaining this critical information.
