It’s important to remember that looking at your data doesn’t solely mean looking at your standard reports such as traffic, engagement, conversions, etc. You need to get familiar with your audience insights to understand your different market segments.
The best research is your own, and as much as you can, you want to ask your audience what they want from you. Gathering data from your user base doesn’t have to be costly or complicated. To survey your audience, you can do simple things such as:
- Sending a quick survey link via email.
- Inviting some of your clients to join you for a Q&A to learn more about their needs.
- Using polling features on social media.
- Use a social media post to ask your audience to reach out with any questions, needs, or concerns.
- Add a survey link to your email signature to gather data over some time.
When you have little to work with or looking to be proactive with future ideas, Answer The Public is a useful tool. Google Trends is also a great tool to evaluate trends.
