Have you ever ran across a post on Facebook and wanted to go back to it but couldn’t find it?  Did you know that you can save posts on Facebook and even create a collection of them.  You may be thinking to yourself…”why is this important?”  But it is important because it’s a not only a productivity hack that could save you a lot of time, it is also a great way to collect research for a project.

Why Save Posts on Facebook and Create a Collection?

First and foremost if you’re a course creator, then you already know that Facebook is filled with hot niches.  These hot niches have Facebook pages and groups where your ideal customers or clients are spilling the tea.  They’re talking about what issues and concerns they have and they’re talking about their innermost problems that you could potentially solve.

You might be wondering how could this work for you?  So let me give you an example.  Let’s say you want to create a course about dogs.  Now dogs and pet lovers are a hot niche.  But you want to drill down to a specific niche.  And maybe it’s drilling down to a specific type of dog. Maybe it’s Pitbulls.  You may narrow it down to Blue Nose Pitbulls and then narrow it further down to Blue Nose Pitbull Puppies.  Then you can comb through Facebook and find a ton of posts that are strictly related to this topic.  You can now save these posts and create a collection or a specific lists of posts all about Blue Nose Pitbull Puppies.

Having this collection will give you easy access to a collection of questions, fun facts, and ideas all that you can use to create your course.  You can now write your sales page copy based upon all the questions that people have related to the topic.  This is the best way to collect research.
