When searching for the perfect niche, Street Smarts will guide you to find the keywords for which there are a large number of searches already being made for. This is shown to us every month by market researchers and their tools. Find their free versions and use them.
Then next we need to find out the who, the what, the where, and the why. The factors that are demanding those highly sought after keywords. Also we will pick only those or we should pick only what others are seeking and the less popular keywords; that Keyword Engines return i.e. you don’t want to see three million results returned by Google Adword’s Keyword Engine or any online keyword engine. For that keyword, is use to sell advertisers and not yours the advertisee. Use these Keyword engines but keep in mind they are built for those seeking to place advertisements with publishers which you and your niche will become.
The theory is such you need a niche that promotes products that are already selling. This works particularly well when there are products related to the topic(s) you are involved with. Say your a Skate Boarder or a BMX Biker or your into Ballet the first two things have many products you can promote. Whereas the third ah, geese I am not sure a tutu maybe, some shoes/slippers, tights, or classes. Who knows I don’t. I am not into Ballet. But still I am guessing there are things here that people will actually buy on the Internet.
Then, of course, there has to be an affiliate program for the product that pays a high enough commission to make your effort worthwhile. Or you must totally love what you are Blogging or supporting with your sites. That or your entertaining people or informing others with your same interests, so you can earn their trust and suggest other items to them.
Quite frankly, I find the standard approach to niche market research a tad tedious. Find what you are most passionate about and find things that relate to it or to your other loved and liked topics. Maybe you love wine, chocolates, vacationing, taking photos, and sharing them. Hey there are businesses built around everything imaginable. And most of them have need of supplies from suppliers. And these Suppliers have affiliate programs. You’ll also will have plenty of space on your pages to use AdSense or some other ad programs and/or your own personal ads as well as promoting books, movies, songs, and the things that support what it is that you are doing. Amazon is the leader here today, but there are thousand of up and comers.
I use to prefer a faster and easier method for finding profitable markets, which are based on the knowledge on what people buy, what they want, and what they need. Well that might be the case in a booming economy, but not today we are looking for the best we can afford and who else is using that affordable merchandise. Were looking for suggestions. Information after all this thing called the Inter-net was built solely for that premise of getting the best Information out there on the Net.
Most of us don’t actually need half the stuff we own, but we buy it anyway. For example, I don’t need a sports car, but I WANT a sports car. Well I would if I could, but I am not a Supper Affiliate just yet.
So, how do you find out what people want? Well, were living in the “End Times” so just think of the Seven Deadly Sins, and the answers will come to ya quickly enough.
There are thousands of products created simply to satisfy the “Want’s and Pleasures” evoked by Lust, Pride, Greed, Gluttony, Envy, Wrath and Sloth. Lets look at a few of them.
Many a dating website, has been built around the first sin, or the natural desire to continue the species. Others prefer to think of getting married and having babies as love instead of propagating the human race.
Speaking of getting married and having babies, wedding supplies and baby products are hot, Many or poor husband to be has been bored out of his gourd looking at endless magazines and their wedding products or baby junk by there Wifey’s to be.
An even more deadlier portion of lust, even more sinful the on-line porn industry generates $12 billion in annual revenues for photos, movies, clothes, and toys etc, etc. Look out Santa. Talk about competition.
Often around 50%, commissions in the dating and porn industries for affiliates these are attractive and many use them. I do not support on-line Porn and I suggest the same for everyone, don’t use them lets get that smut back underground and out of the open were it is demoralized, as It is being accepted as a common everyday need.
You can increase your success with sites in these Lust categories when you bring pride (or vanity) into play. we a proud of our appearances they alone are responsible for a huge point of sell. Markets such as Cosmetics, Perfumes, Shampoos, Ca-lone, and sexy clothing. Really, how many times have you seen ads on TV for these personal Items that are made out to be some there truly aren’t. Seen any Angles falling from Heaven lately? Any women rolling down hills getting dirty and falling in the ocean?
What is so especially good about these products is that they are selling you a (graven) Image or an Idol. Their names we all are already familiar with, so all you have to do is present these products as an option. And Bingo the world lusts right along with the devil. And because healthy folks attract mates more easily, products that promote good health fit this category also, which explains the large numbers of successful affiliates programs here.
As for greed, how many folks want more money I know I do, don’t you?
Although we all could and do need money and more so today then a while ago. Rather than working for it (see Slothfulness), many will try every promising fad to come along called auto piloted. They are rolling the dice here and being taking to the cleaners. They might as well have gone to Vegas baby. For what goes to Vegas stays in Vegas. Gambling Web sites this year will rake in nearly $10 billion in revenue, mostly from U.S. consumers.
Besides gambling, I’m sure you can come up with a least 20 products, that when used properly, will really help people earn more money! There is a new E-book or dummies books being written every day, oh don’t forget them Idiot books as well.
Forgive me for saying this,but most of us who can afford to be gluttons, are gluttons.
Really now, who needs more than two hundred or three hundred pairs of shoes? I have work boots That I rather not wear (see Sloth) and two pairs of sneakers and a pair of dress shoes I wear maybe three or four times a year. If someone important to me dies or gets married.
But how many women have only three or four pairs of shoes?
How many Cars do you need? You can only drive one at a time right? In this category, also consider electronics such as computers I have three or four myself, TVs, two here in one room phones only one for me and I am not fond of it. Not to mention entertainment systems stereos Game boys, Play Stations 1,2 3, etc,etc. Music CDs, movie DVDs, and dust collecting knick knacks are items that people like to collect.
I relate envy as to most people and their pipe dreams for their extreme desire for super success, which the multi-billion dollar self-improvement industry satisfies nicely. Six Pack Abs, Bigger Boobs, smaller noses, Hair, Teeth, even eyes. Color contacts; want blue or green or vampire have it.
Well I don’t know if there is a Niche here, but a supporting Niche maybe guns, hunting supplies. take your aggressions out on that poor little bunny rabbit or squirrel, what did a fish ever do to you? Fine your hungry I can see that but a forty four magnum to take down a deer come on a grizzly bear maybe or those rabid raccoons; after all they are wear masks.
Products marked as fast and easy sounds like Lust all over again. but no its Sloth I am lazy and I can admit it but… I lack energy. Look for products that advertise a boost maybe for five hours or better know of any? I have used them. Twice the caffeine, three times the sugar; blast off only to crash. No wounder we all all so slothful today. Have you ever gotten your wings from a bull who is well read?
You may have consider that each of the above-mentioned products/industries are rifled with competition. Competition is good! Thats proof that the market is indeed hot. So what’s the secret? How do you succeed in a hugely competitive market? Promote it even more thats how!
Well, it’s all about branding, promoting and stay in the publics view. Dare to be different. Set your site apart from the rest of the crowd. Be yourself be true to your Fans, followers, and customers.you will need to earn their trust with everything you suggest or don’t. But beware! Because we’re all wired to notice what’s what. And what is different or unique in our surroundings, people will pay attention to you If you are there to be seen.
Get excited about the products you sell, and your visitors will get excited too. Better yet, they’ll buy. You too will succeed in big competitive markets, when you think outside the box and get into your customers shoes. Build your site with them in mind and not for you alone.
