Sorry, you're not a market, you're just a customer. A market is somebody willing to spend money betting that you will be a customer.
To get J. to make shoes that fit and last, it's not enough that you want to buy them. J. has to be convinced that shoe stores will believe you want to buy them, and would want to sell them to you more than they want to try to sell you something else instead, and more than somebody else wants them to try to sell you something else instead. It's a miracle when we find someone selling what we actually want. It's always much easier all around to come to believe that we want whatever they have to sell.
A similar argument applies in politics, where you're just a voter, not a constituency.
