Data collection can be done in many ways. The most obvious one is a survey.
  • Create some questions that relate to your business, that regard what you want to find out about your target audience, and then go out and ask people.
  • Most surveys are of around 100 people at least, often more to get a good overview.
  • This data can then be analyzed and tell you how to improve on your business to get more people to come to it.
  • You can also record how many people are coming in and out of a place, to get a better idea of how successful it is.
  • You can also do online surveys, to find out more general information or information that does not relate to a physical thing.
The tools of data collection depend on that you are collecting it for. You will most probably need:
  • A team of people to successfully survey an area, and then tally the results and turn them in to a graph.
  • You will also need a computer, to turn these figures into graphs, and interpret the information.
Data collection is relatively easy to do, and once you are aware of what you need, going out and getting it done takes no time at all. Just remember to be polite when asking people to complete the survey, and don't force them if they don't want to. You need to be friendly, approachable and talkative to get people interested in the survey. It might be an idea to get a spreadsheet document and keep your entire analysis safe, in case you need it in the future.
