Start with the total available market.

market1

How many people would want/need your product or service?

How large would the market be in $ if every demand was met. What would that look like in terms of total number of product bought or services rendered?

.

Next determine your maximum market share.

market 2

How many customers can use the product or service?

How many have the money to buy it?

How much can I possible produce?

.

Now you can build a target market.

market 3

Who am I going to sell to first?

How will I let them know about me?

If I see everything possible to my target market how much would that be?

Sometimes it is the simplest visuals that mean the most.
