Coming up with a business idea or forming a nonprofit is one of the hardest things you can do. So, congrats! You did it! You started a business, you launched a nonprofit, you pushed yourself and made it! But wait...there’s more. We really don’t mean to be a buzzkill, but even if you’ve opened your doors and handed out business cards, there’s still more work to do.

To have a successful, sustainable, long-lasting business and nonprofit, you need stellar marketing and branding. And to get stellar marketing and branding, you need to “know thyself.” Or in this case, you need to know your team. You need to know your team’s culture, personality, mission, and values. In other words, you need to market research your team.

In this episode of Empathy, Marketing, and You, Raven and Brian talk about how to learn more about your team by having an open, flowing conversation with your team that’s structured by a simple, step-by-step checklist.

And if you’re not sure what market research really is, that’s totally ok! In our episodes, What is Market Research? And How Market Research Helps You, Raven and Brian unpack what market research really is; and they talk about what it is not. Check them out here:
