Tip: Find leads on Twitter by searching requests for recommendations

Getting those first few customers can seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be that hard. Get new customers by searching for people who are asking for recommendations on Twitter.

It can be surprisingly simple to find warm leads on Twitter. All you have to do is search for "recommend [product type]", or something similar. To cut out the noise, use the advanced search, and apply filters. And voila, you'll see a list of people who are actively searching for a product like yours. From there, all you've got to do is reach out. The OP recently found a lead this way, liked their tweet, and sent a DM asking what exactly they needed. Then they hopped on a call and closed the deal. It's not scalable, but it's a good place to start.

    I don't recommend to search for "recommend dataset", you may give up on data market. Also applicable to research ideas. 👍
