Companies can conduct marketing research in many ways. Let’s compare tools. Using the same company from the Week 4 discussion, examine the Market Analyses provided by GlobalTrade.net, located at http://www.globaltrade.net/international-market-analyses-reports.html. On the left-hand side of the page, there is a section titled, “Browse the Market Analyses by Industry.” Click on the industry that is closest to the selected company from the Week 4 discussion.

Compare the information you locate from GlobalTrade.net against the Market Research Database from U.S. Commercial Services located at http://www.buyusainfo.net/adsearch.cfm?search_type=int&loadnav=no?. You may also use the Internet or Strayer databases to conduct any additional research.
