One key step in creating any business is understanding your market and competition. For those who don't have the big bucks to buy the marketing data you need, this is the resource for you. I have compiled a list of statistical resources I found valuable when we were doing our market study for ThemBid.com. While some of these sources are dated (hey its the government), you can still find good value when getting started. Enjoy!
