Before you jump into any topic that you feel your ideal audience might be interested in – ask questions! Especially if you’re feeling stumped by what’s hitting the mark and what isn’t. Hit up Instagram, Reddit, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook Groups and do the research! What gets your audience fired up? What are they struggling with? What questions do they have? How can you meet them in the middle? Who are they going to for help, and where are they finding these people? These are all important questions that can help you create more programs, presentations, and content that will engage your audience. n n </div> n <div> n <br/> n </div> n <div> n <font style=”color: rgb(255, 58, 173);”> n <b> n n Be Proactive n n </b> n </font> n </div> n <div> n n Now that you know what your audience is struggling with, it’s time to get to work!
