How to identify myths in your niche

Here are three strategies to identify myths in your niche.

2. What questions are you frequently asked by your list community, your members, your clients?

What questions are you frequently asked that reveal a myth? Those of you that have been following me for a while know I laugh every time somebody asks me about duplicate content because of the big myth about how deadly it is and what you’ve got to do to avoid it.

A lot of times in frequently asked questions, there is a myth in there that you can pick up and exploit for the good of you and for the good of your clients, giving them the right information and demonstrating that you’re in fact an expert in your field.
