Lesson 1: Who am I marketing this thing?

To get customers you need an audience. But who exactly is your audience? Know the audience first before you think about SEO. The more you know about your audience the better you can position your product or services. Here are some questions to figure out:
Who are they?
Where do they hangout?
What do they search for?
What are they talking about?

You have to think the way a prospect thinks about your product or service. Some tools that can help to get more insights about your audience would be: Go to web analytics to get the information on your audience. This is usually google analytics or other tools you have on your website. It gives you more in depth insights on visitors demographics.

Check out social streams as such as Twitter. What do people tweet about?

You can look into Google Trends to figure out interests
Answer Engines such as Quora to see what people are asking and seeking
Check out niche forums to see what are people asking and what problems they are facing (e.g. Reddit) Make a buyer’s persona
