researching competitors
  • facebook retargetting
  • Plug competitors URL's into: https://www.similarweb.com. Change to referrals and find out where their traffic comes from, copy, rinse and repeat.
  • Research competitors via http://semrush.com/ and view their advert history, see what graphics/ text ads they use/used that gained the most traction for them. You can see how much they spent, what type of adverts and much more. Golden.
  • Plug competitors into http://ahref.com/ and research their: 1. Backlinks profile 2. Best content (that generates the most traffic) and many more features.
  • Tip - You can add around 5 at the same time, and use Ahrefs to compare them. The end result will tell you whom has the best links and much much more.
  • Create an excell sheet and add the data into it, research your top 5/10 competitors and pick their quailtys apart.
