About This Class

Why is market sizing an important topic?  

If you're a product manager or if you're a business owner - one of the first things you need is to get a handle of how much you can realistically make.

There is a systematic way to answer this question.  It's not "I hope to make $100K".  Banks do not loan to "hopes".  Venture capitalists do not write checks to "hopes".  Management does not promote based on "hopes".

You need to quantify the market size and show what your potential revenue may be.  

In this crash course, we'll go through the basic principals of market sizing.  What are some common mistakes to avoid, and what are some guiding principals.  We will use examples and exercises to make the concepts come to life.

Really interesting process - I'm sure a lot of people don't do any of this before committing to the creation of a product and then wonder why they don't make any money! I'm always nervous of making assumptions because there are so many variables but the fact that Jeannie's LinkedIn calculation was eventually validated by hard data was most encouraging. I'm still not sure I know where to start in assessing the value of my own target market but this has certainly opened my eyes to the possibilities.
Simple but good tips

Jeannie Chan

Brand Manager / Strategy Consultant

I'm Jeannie Chan, a branding and marketing specialist based in New York City. I'm not an at-home internet marketer. I work full-time marketing million-dollar brands, and do pro-bono consulting and marketing for non-profit organizations. I have been a marketer for over a decade, with experience in a variety of industries. I have worked in categories ranging from pet food to electronics. My expertise and knowledge is based on my experience working with / for entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, and Fortune 500 companies. Along the way, I picked up quite a few tricks of the trade. Now, I hope to share them with you here on SkillShare.

I got my MBA concentrating in Brand Management from Washington University in St. Louis. During the day, I'm a Senior Marketing Manager for a Global Fortune 500 company. In my free time, I eat my way around New York City.
