My audience first if you've ever run Google ads before then it's going to Look pretty familiar as it allows you to Look over and dive into different In-market and Affinity segments for Example if I pick in market and then Business Services I can see advertising And marketing Services business and Financial services business Printing and Document Services business technology And a whole bunch of other businessy Related services and topics and products That people are interested in and I can Click on any one of these like say Advertising and marketing services and I Can learn more about this audience Including what other YouTube channels They watch what other purchases they Make what other audiences they're likely To be a part of and other subcategories Within advertising and marketing Services that I may want to check out as Well it's a powerful little tool Especially when combined with this next One Google Trends Google Trends is Another fantastic market research tool Especially to give you sort of an Overview or high level 30 000 foot view On a business or topic or industry or Essentially anything that may be Trending all you have to do is simply Enter a search term and it'll tell you The level of interest that this topic Has both now and in the past for example
Let me type in something random like say Sock knitting in order to see what's Going on in the industry right now well According to Google Trends it looks like A pretty stable topic over the past 12 Months with a pretty obvious spike in November which makes sense as these are Probably a pretty popular gift around The holiday time but we can also take a Look at it over different time frames Not to mention breaking it down by Different countries in different states You can also see any related topics or My personal favorite related queries Which in this case is going to show us The terms crazy sock lady and Centro Knitting machine which are topping the Charts with the term vintage sock Knitting machine showing an increase in Interest of 550 percent powerful stuff And I'm sure I don't need to tell you Just how incredibly useful it is to know Exactly what people are searching for What they're interested in and the exact Keywords that they're using in order to Find it okay next let's do a little Competitor research in order to dive a Little deeper into your competitors and Find out if they're really as smart as They think they are now there are two Big dangers that you need to look out For when you're doing competitor Research the first is not knowing who Your competitors are or ignoring them
Completely which is inexcusable and for Lack of a better term just silly after All even if they're doing most things Wrong well there's still lessons to be Learned and the second danger is copying Them completely which leads you coming Off as a second raid version of them and 99 times out of 100 people are just Going to want to go for the original Version Foreign So with that said here's how you do Competitor research the right way First off you need to make a list of Your competitors and group them into one Of four different groups number one is Direct these are people that sell what You sell to who you sell next is Indirect these are people that sell what You sell to a different group or Different segment of the market number Three is colleagues these are people That sell something different to who you Sell and number four is Futures these Are people that sell something to people Who will eventually become your target Audience for example if you sell running Shoes they may sell walking shoes or Books that teach people how to run once You have these lists you want to start Diving into their content and their Website and their social media profiles What do they offer what do they talk About and how do they talk about it are
They cheap expensive fast slow boring Strange interesting new novel shiny Tasty you need to know what's out there So you could know what they're doing and How you're going to differentiate Yourself from them but also so you can See what's working and what's not so Here's the deal on that well I never Advise judging the success of your Business or your marketing campaign on Vanity metrics such as likes and comment And shares they do provide at least a Small level of value at least insofar as Figuring out what Their audience likes And enjoys what content they want to see More of and less of that said an Important Point here is that there is a Very big difference between buyers and Non-buyers and you want to make very Sure that you're basing your business And marketing decisions off of people That are actually willing to pay and buy Whatever it is that you're selling not Just with likes and loves and hugs and High fives but with money because that's How business works so let's talk about That next now full disclosure if you're In the early stages of launching a new Business or starting a new company then This next part isn't going to apply to You yet but this is a big but I cannot Lie it's still something that you want To pay attention to because moving Forward you're going to want to know
