This is one of the question that new comers to niche marketing don’t really understand, and furthermore, it’s one of the first causes of failure in affiliate marketing.
When you finish reading this short yet jam-packed article, you will find your niche markets in mere… seconds like I do.
What Is Niche Marketing?
Niche marketing is nothing else than a segment of a big market.
Let’s say that you want to target the big, profitable (and scary) “weight loss” market.
Instead of trying to promote your affiliate products to millions of hungry buyers searching online every single day for a solution to their problems, you would target “weight loss products” or “hypnosis for weight loss” to a smaller audience.
Why would you do that?
Simple, because there is less competition… But there is also less people in these sub-market (or sub-niches).
Should You Choose The Biggies Or The Tiny?
When you are starting out, it is recommended to start with the smallest niche, but…
If you are a doer, you can attack the big market directly. It’s what I prefer, I prefer to go where the money is, and where people buy!
You need to know that if you choose the big markets, you will not dominate them. For this, you need very deep pockets since big companies through money on the web just for branding themselves even if they lose thousands of dollars doing so. They just don’t care…
But it’s not a reason to ignore these hihgly lucrative markets…
All you need is a plan…
Please, understand that the more competition, the more money you will make. The bigger the market and the bigger your chances of earning more money.
There is money for everyone, beginners and veterans…
Still with me?
Don’t be afraid of competition. On the contrary, you should welcome them because they do the work for you while you watch and try to do better than them.
Internet is big, but most of the people out there are doing something wrong… after all, they are human.
Don’t let them intimidate you. If you want to go after the “weight loss” market, go for it. If you want to go after the “make money online” market, go for it.
Here Is The Key To Success
Master your topic. I need become a real master (or hire someone). Get a blog, and start posting about your subject, start giving proofs and showing people that you are not a player…
After a couple of months, people in the niche will find your site and post it on stumbleupon, digg and social media sites, you will receive emails from people asking for your help and guidance.
Then, all you have to do is to write a short 30 pages report solving a big problem in your niche and sell it for $7 or $9.95.
Be sure to capture the email address of people who buy from you because you will send them other stuff to buy…
You will first test the water with affiliate programs, and later you will know exactly what they want to buy.
Once you do that, you want to find a big army of affiliates who will promote your products all over the Internet…
They will do everything for you… Pay per click advertising, search engine optimization, social bookmarking, forum posting, etc…
Then all you need to do is watch and see your popularity increase.
What’s the next step?
The next step is to crank out another product, like an audio interview and repeat the process above, with your army.
What’s the next step?
Set up a membership site (it’s really easy to do), and you are set for $10000 a month.
Let me do the maths for you… Just 333 people at 29.95 will make you $10000 per month.
Think you can do this? You bet! There are millions and millions of people in the “weight loss” niche. All you need to do is find 300.
