It is obvious that any service you want to sell in the market has to be appealing to the general public. To gauge its true potential, the easy and most economical way is to search its attractiveness on the internet. Make a list of three to five ideas and type them in the search box of Google Trends, Amazin(dot)com or Adwords. The graph will appear that will reflect from the most popular ideas to the least popular ones. This is just the first step of your process. The next step is to visit the Google Adwords webpage and type in your graphic design idea in its search box. There, you will come across the paid sponsored listings at the top and the bottom of the page. Through this you will know which graphic design ideas are being financed by the people giving you more insight on the graphic design potential. Last but not
The next method to determine the potential is by matching it with the fad likeliness. This is the issue that is rarely touched by the businesses. It has a major bearing on the outcome of your decision. It wants you to be vigilant and guarded, irrespective of the amount of consumers purchasing your service, that the services you are targeting is not a fad. For example, in the business of vitamins and supplements, this retail business has witnessed the introduction of supplements such as bee pollen, shark cartilage, deer antler velvet and others in every quarter of the year.

In other words, there has to be zero competition which is very unlikely in today's world. The other group of people is of the opinion that the market has to be competitive as it will provide you with substantial profit with zero competition. Hence, the competition map has to be studied well in order to have a conclusive outcome.
