Why Newbie Marketers Should Start in a Niche Outside of IM
Today, I am going to address a rather common topic that I have been asked via e-mail and one that I see a lot on internet marketing forums as well. It’s about why I recommend that you start making money online outside a niche market other than “making money online.” I’m also going to tell you what I recommend instead (easiest way to figure out profitable niche) and how you can get started in right direction (product recommendation). Let’s get to it.
Whenever I tell a newbie that they should start in a niche outside of the “make money online/internet marketing” niche, the usual response that I get is, “Why? Are you scared of a little competition?” That always makes me laugh because there’s competition within every profitable niche. The real reason is because you can’t really promote legitimate “make money” products whenever you’ve never done it yourself. I mean, with all the crap out there, how can you tell the difference between a quality product and a crappy one? You can’t. That comes with experience.
Now, you’re probably asking yourself, “What do I do instead?” Well, that’s a great question for which I have an equally great answer. Think about your hobbies. What are you into? What do you like to do for fun? There is a VERY, VERY good chance that you into a hobby (niche) that’s really profitable and that you’re part of a much larger niche — even if you don’t know it. Since you’re in the niche yourself, it also means that you will be more easily able to connect with your audience. I will use myself as an example to prove my point.
When I first started making money online, I was told not to go into “make money online” (didn’t know why at the time), so I didn’t. I sat and thought about it for a while, and then, it dawned on me that maybe what I majored in while in college (Spanish) was a niche. As it turned out, it was (and is). It’s something that I knew a lot about and enjoyed (love languages in general). Since I was in the niche, I had also already used a lot of products as well. It was great! The best part was that I was able to pretty much type from my head and pump out content really quickly, and readers loved my work!
When you go for what you know, everything else will fall into place. It doesn’t matter if it’s sports, cooking, video games, gardening, or something I’ve never heard of before. Go for it and take action! With all the niche markets and products out there (and the tons that will come out being that we’re only a few days into the new year), your opportunities are limitless.
