There are 5 great ways to research your market online aside from basic keyword research.
- Online Surveys
Online surveys allow you to ask your market questions anonymously and much of the process can be automated.
- Blog Questions
You can ask questions on your blog and encourage them to leave their input.
- Your Email List
Your list of email subscribers is a built-in, pre-screened audience that’s great for seeking feedback.
- Forums and Q&A Sites
Forums and question-and-answer sites offer data on all kinds of topics.
- Social Networks
Social networks are places where people openly share their likes and interests.
Even though you can discover lots of information online, don’t abandon your offline market research.
