  • Turn to the people around you. By using your community to reiterate and refine your creative ideas, it can make those ideas (and your content) even better.

Find your niche

  • What differentiates your ideas and content from others in the space? The more specific the content, the more opportunity to build the business. 
  • How can you find your niche? Use platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Reddit: Engage with shared content enthusiasts and discover subcommunities through hashtags, explore pages, liked posts and more. By leveraging these enthusiast groups, you can identify what direction to take your ideas to create the most value for the right people.
