Provided are information sections on factors to be considered in estimating business potential (economic conditions, customer characteristics, and competition), sources of assistance in making estimates, two learning activities (checklists to estimate business potential and questions to be answered about current and potential customer population), one pamphlet from the Small Business Administration, "Pleasing Your Boss, The Customer," (which considers why customers buy, where they buy, and when they buy), and a script from a cassette tape designed for use with this module.
