How do you find communities to target?

I have this product https://boomp.co
I'm trying to find how to best target ads.

I've tried Facebook and LinkedIN and the targeting is not that useful. I'm trying to target small business owners that have dental practices, beauty salons, spas, etc. to see if they'd have any use in a product that allows them to promote off-peak bookings.

Reddit is a good place, thinking to start there.
Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!

I also recommending investing some time or money into search engine optimisation- a tip for this is to identify some keywords that your target audience are searching for and use SEO to rank highly on search engines for these keywords. That way your site will be visible for those in need of your product.

You may start with your current clients and from there you can create an audience persona for your product or brand.

You may also collect demographic data through Google Analytics.

You can also research on your competitors too, so you can laid out first your competitive analysis.

A good search by keywords on Google or Yahoo helps to find target communities. I also try to find communities related to my niche on facebook, reddit, or any other social media.

Yeah, searching via keywords on the search engines is a good option but sometimes it doesn't help. Some of my friends use Facebook and Instagram targeting by seo companies or freelancers. The results are pretty good, but you should be careful with some of them. Can't remember it clearly but there are some premium tools that can help with that too. For example, people on linkedin frequently use the linkedin banner maker to make good visuals for their accounts. So, maybe you need smth like that too?
