Market Research

First, you choose the product you want to promote and do proper market research. This is maybe the most important part. You may pick a certain type of product that people need or want, such as a water bottle. Then, figure out which specific one to promote. These tools help with this part of the process.

1. Google Trends: Look on Google Trends to perform market research. In the water bottle scenario, you can see that glass water bottles trend much higher than other types. That shows this is a good idea.

2. Amazon: Check Amazon reviews for the type of product to figure out how to promote it. Reviews show what people are looking for and positive remarks or complaints they have, which can guide you. For example, you learn that people want an easy-to-clean water bottle, so you can promote that feature.

3. Reddit: Look for more reviews on this site. With the water bottle example, you might see people saying that it’s helpful to have more than one size, which could guide you to promote size options.

4. Glimpse: This affordable tool helps if you’re struggling to decide on a product. It continuously sends you emails on new trends before they’re trending.

5. Product Hunt: This site helps if you want to sell digital products, as it shows trends in new options.
