I received a LOT of questions last week when I sent out my mini-email survey. Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond!
A couple of people sent me emails asking why I would ask my subscribers what questions they had.
Am I out of ideas or something?
Far from it.
Having enough ideas is rarely a problem for most entrepreneurs I know.
We have too many ideas!
The challenge isn’t coming up with ideas. It’s choosing which ones to run with.
There is no limit to what I could write and share, but I need to make sure it’s a good fit for my audience.
I speak to my private clients every week, but they’re only a small subset of my audience.
Asking my list allows me to receive feedback from people at all different levels in their internet journey.
I’ll be covering a lot of these questions in future emails.
The most valuable part of the feedback for me was seeing how many of the questions were on the basics.
Subscribers wanted to know what to do first, how to choose the right market, how to generate visitors, how to convert visitors into sales, how to promote affiliate programs, and how to find your USP (Unique Selling Position).
It’s easy for me to forget what it’s like when you’re just starting out.
There are so many things you have to learn and so many voices telling you different ways to go.
It’s tough to sort through all the noise.
Many subscribers are trying to earn their very first dollar online.
Others sent in questions about specific traffic sources…like how to generate better results from Facebook and Youtube ads.
Running a super-simple survey like this lets me see the type of content I should be covering.
And all I had to do was ask.
When is the last time you sent a survey to your list?
How about picking up the phone and calling a few of your customers?
Success online requires knowing and caring about your audience.
Doberman Dan recently told me how he has sat on that bench in the Walmart Pharmacy to help him write sales copy for a supplement.
He just wanted to chat with the customers.
They shared their problems and the pain they’re going through. They told them about their concerns.
This simple method of just speaking to the target audience helped him better understand the market and create deeper empathy with them.
A successful internet business is not a monologue. It’s a dialogue.
Subscribers aren’t just numbers. They’re real people with real problems.
And sometimes the best way to find out what they want is to simply ask.
But asking is just one of the methods I use to understand my audience.
