One of the best points that the guys make is going to social media to investigate whether your prospective niche market has presence and community around it.

Why you need to create a roadmap.
When have you ever gone from point A to point B without making a plan to get there? Sure it can happen by accident or luck but if you want steady and predictable results, you’ve got to make a plan! On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Scott and Chris as they discuss how to make a road map from where you are to where you want to be with your business. It can be really helpful to come up with a macro (large scale) plan and a micro (small scale) plan. As you identify your macro objectives, the micro-objectives exist to help you tackle each step along the way. While it may sound intimidating, as Scott often stays, when you chunk it down, your goals become a lot more attainable.
