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.
