1. Target an Interest You Know a Lot About

Understanding your audience is easy when you are full of knowledge on a topic. If you love Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream, and I mean really “love” Chunky Monkey ice cream, then you understand other people who also have an obsession in that area. Marketing a business, online or offline, in an area of interest that you are extremely familiar with and passionate about is a simple way to automatically understand what your audience is looking for.

Running surveys is another form of information gathering. Many survey management firms you can find online offer free and paid versions of their software, which allows you to survey your audience and ask them exactly what products they are looking for in their lives. Surveys are a great way of capturing email contacts as well.

A smart call to action is to ask your readers to communicate their needs, desires and problems in the comments section of your blog.

4. Studying Those Stats

Google Analytics can provide incredible insight to your market and tune into the market you can be targeting.
