I talk to other teachers and owners and discover what they want then look at Facebook groups, local papers and if it as a product, I purchase and test it. Then compare on line to other products. Can be a bit time consuming but after I finish I know what I am talking about. My niche is teaching ESL ( English a a second language) in HCMC, Vietnam.
I also physically go to any place that has a bearing on helping the teacher. For example, visiting where you get your motorbike license and what you have to do. Same for visa runs etc. Time consuming but I don’t get caught out providing false information. It is difficult to ring and find out as a cultural thing most Vietnamese will not admit to not knowing something and have been known to make things up while trying to be helpful.

That's a brilliant way of doing it Stephen - you've done original research to get the most up-to-date information to your website visitors - great job!

Thanks, I can’t rely on the computer here 100% and it is so easy to get false information just with the language barrier alone. And yes , I do speak a bit of Vietnamese.

That is a great approach which will work best in the long run and gives peace of mind as well as one can be sure that the advice will be valuable to the readers

Hi Kyle:) I watch the advertisements on TV and the headlines in newspapers. What's hot? Then I Google and find at least 10 articles to get really informed. And make my own combined content. I also use the headline for a key phrase and/or a tag from the newspaper items. Those are often really awesome. I have one advantage for my websites. I can search in English and translate my articles into Dutch and vise versa. Btw. I do not use Google translate for that matter. I translate in my own words.

I spy on my competitors, sign up with the higher ranked competitor's memberships, they will send you their latest news, you can find tips and info. this way, also read what their customers comment on and use some of this info. to improve your own niche. I also do a lot of research.

The technique or tool I use to find relevant keywords and topic, is Jaxxy.

I would usually select a topic, if it is too broad I would break it down or drill down into my chosen topic. In that way I can also come up with sib-niche and in so doing iwill eventually have a variety to choose from.

This is just one of the many ways I will use, why? Because I have found Jaxxy to to very effective.

Hi, I tend to flit from search engine to search engine to get an idea to what people are searching, once I get to grips with what people are generally interested in around my niche, only then I go into jaxxy to find rellevent keywords that best resonate with what I am planning on discussing within my posts.
