Market Research, SEO, and resource references
Right, so the first step in my quest for market research, is to see what bloggers are using as sources. As it turns out from Technorati (a blog search tool), there are about 1261 posts that include the words "market research". Strange. Everyone seems to be saying that blogs are the next big marketing craze, but yet, marketers don't seem to be posting too much. This leads me to believe that I'm a pioneer (minus the log cabin.. i prefer the pre-made, not so customized one that blogger hooked me up with).
From these links, i've found some interesting info! Here's an example of how other people have been using some of the same SEO (Search Enginge Optimization) tools that i've been experimenting with at Clixyplays (a copywriting agency). They go into detail about the tools they used, and how effective it was for them. Here's a page by "Internet expert, author, keynote speaker, and consultant Marcus P. Zillman, M.S., A.M.H.A" that lists a couple hundred research resource tools, sites, links, and companies. Frankly, this is going to be the page that I continue looking for information from. Another great tool is the Virtual Librarian, mainly because it has links to tons of resources for researchers, everything from news sites, to competitive intelligence, to medical stuff like diseases, to patent information, and lists of databases on top of all that. OK. So i've found a couple sites for basing my statistical search from, but i'm still looking for data on my target markets. Numbers! Is it possible to get numbers?
