Now let's talk about the unpaid method:

This particular formular is what have used a couple of times to gather defined contacts.it has worked for me perfectly well.

if you will today before 31st of December 2019 you may gather 100-200 contact of specified individuals.

The first stage is to Select a niche market
There are so many niches.But what you should do is selecting a niche market with already money in it.market with problems that have persons willing to pay for solutions.

how to identify a hot market

>Very high demand

>Lots of easy to find customers online

>Endless products on sale:

>Lots of websites, social media groups and forums.

Any market that meets up this criterias is good to go.

How to identify problems in your chosen niche

After you have selected a niche or some niches the next step is to start digging in for problems to solve. I achieve this by visiting websites,blogs,and forums of my selected niche.
Just go to websites of your selected niche.
Try to see what problems they are having from the kind of questions people ask,search different things. Write them all down. Big or small. Sometimes a small problems are not noticed by the current players in your selected niche market.It's hard work but it will pay off in the long run.
Write down those problems!
Amazon is also a great place to do that.Search what is selling in your niche. Ask yourself, “What problem is this solving?”
Can you solve it better? There is nothing with importing a superior product and selling it better than the competition.

After you must have gotten a problem that you about to provide solution for you hit up your keyword planner.

Keyword research
Type in the niche's problems you found. Be specific so you can get the amount of monthly searches for every specific words.
If you are getting 10,000 searches a month on a specific word that is excellent! .for instance you search “quick ejaculation”and you got 2,000 searches a month. Not bad at all.

Now your next question should be what do people typing quick ejaculation want? A diet? Or A supplement? They probably want to last longer in bed. They want to build an excellent sexual performance.

So the next is to search for terms like “quick ejaculation solution”, “premature ejaculation cure”, “sexual performance build up”, and lots of words you imagined on premature ejaculation supplements.
Always know Keywords with considerable amount of monthly search is a good niche because considerable number of persons are willing to spend real money on real sexual health solutions.

Next step is to check out the present available solutions. Always know that if your problem has numerous solutions and easy to access information then that may not be an easy to win problem. A great marketplace is one without reachable solutions. So if there doesn't seem to be solutions then you are seeing a winning market to get into if you have a solution to their problems.

Also know that solving a niche market problem means having an intent understanding of their emotional needs. When choosing a niche market You do it in two ways. Its either you are going into a niche market for the money or for your passion. But its better to go with your passion.

Then lastly You have to provide solution to that problem better than anyone else.
Research your niche as much as possible and really put yourself in the position of your audience. If you can do that you can validate that there is in fact a need for your solution or if there isn't as much of a need as possible.
