While a robust market analysis can be a selling point for a video production services business startup, weak market research is a sure giveaway for a business that hasn't invested adequate effort in planning.

Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
As part of your due diligence on opening a video production services business, the next step is to speak with somebody who is already in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
On the other hand, an individual who has a video production services business in another town may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup entrepreneurs.
