Information on what is popular can come from the news, social media, movies and simply talking to friends. Pay attention to industry forecasts in trade publications. Think about how new technology that might change your industry.
Talk to your customers about what they want and what are their needs and concerns. Use the customers' ideas. Coach employees and your entire company to engage customers in conversations. If an someone decides not to buy from you, ask them why. You should consider this as valuable information. In this way, you can tweak your product to be more aligned with what the customer wants. Use customer surveys for existing customers or poll your target markets and that will provide you with further results.
