Let me tell you what a cool guy Joel Comm is! It’s 10:50 am on Wednesday morning and NormalJoe (Imwithjoe.com) and I are chatting live with Joel Comm and a few other lucky people. Ha! Joel Comm answered my question and gave me a “BrilliantJeni” shout out which made me laugh. He also shot me a private message related to one of my questions. What a great way to start a morning.
So one of my questions was about how to identify trends for niche website opportunities. I was a bit surprised when Joel said he used nothing fancy- good old Google Trends, Google Zeitgeist, and “going into stores and asking staff about trends in whatever topic.” That last one might just be a brilliant idea.
Other tips from Joel- get off Blogger.com. Suggested WordPress.
