How to Find Solutions to Your Fans' Problems

How to Find Solutions to Your Fans' Problems image

There are lots of places you can turn to to find solutions to your Fans' problems, and here are several that I have found to be very effective for growing my blog.

For this step, I like to pick the top 3 to 6 problems that were repeated again and again and for each one of those, brainstorm how I can solve that problem.

From the simple to the complex, each problem will have multiple solutions. Think of as many as you can for each problem, and write them all down.

It may be a single blog post or video, up through dedicated cookbooks, video courses, or you flying across the country to stand in their kitchen with them. Write them all down. These are your potential money makers in each area.
