What are the key research tools/procedures you use when starting in a new niche?
Here's a few I look at:
- Google Trends to see if the niche is growing over time
- Keyword tool (Long Tail Pro in my case) to see there are many people searching relevant keywords (and competition levels)
- Forums to see the main problems people are facing in the niche
- Market leaders to see price points, problems being solved, how successful they are, and what I can do better/different
