Figuring Out What Niché to Get Into

Daily Stress Relieving Humor

I have always start every one of my posts with a little bit of stress relieving humor. Some of it may be corny, but it still makes me laugh, and laughter is certainly the best medicine for stress.

You know that tingly little feeling you get when you like someone? That’s your common sense leaving your body.

Laying the Groundwork

Okay, so I’ve done this step-by-step so far. I started out by establishing a blog––something obvious to you because you’re here. This is a WordPress blog, but I integrated it with OptimizedPress because it is so flexible and versatile for a basis in Internet marketing.

Oh! By the way, how do you like my blog?

After I built for blog, I began adding a lot of content to it. Then I monetized the blog. I added some Google AdSense ads to it, and I began promoting John Thornhill’s coaching and his product Simple Traffic Solutions.

After firmly establishing my blog, it was time to move on to deciding what niche I want to move into so far as building a product is concerned. Okay, now the hard work begins.

Before I go on, I’ve got to tell you the beginning of this process has filled me full of self-doubt. There’s nothing more terrifying to me then self-doubt, as I’ve always been a man full of confidence and courage. But I suppose all of us are afraid of the unknown, especially if it’s something we really don’t know much about.

So the first step I took in deciding my niche was to begin brainstorming for topics. First, I began the brainstorming by making a list of at least 10 topics I’ve covered on this blog. Then I made a list of 10 things I’m good at. (That was a real wake-up call!) Next, I made a list of 10 things that other people say I’m good at. (Another wake up call!) Then I made a list of 10 things I really enjoy doing. The purpose behind these lists was to decide if I had a passion for anything that may allow me to build a lucrative product.

Next, I made a list of my 10 favorite websites, but that turned out to be a bust because all the sites I like either deal with politics or the Catholic religion. However, my next list was a bit more helpful. It was a list of 10 things I’m interested in but don’t really know anything about. When it comes to technology and all things Internet, virtually everything could go on this list.

Niche Research

ClickBankThe first place I went to do my niche research was ClickBank. Armed with my list of core topics, I began using a combination of keywords for each topic to determine whether there was an audience for each of these topics. I had a total a 45 core topics to research. Frankly, I don’t think ClickBank has a very good search engine on it so I didn’t find it to be a very good place to do my research and make my decision.

So the next place I moved to was JVZoo. I made a little bit more progress here, as JVZoo has become an enormously popular place for launching new informational products in Internet Marketing.

I also went to the Warrior Forum to find out what was on everybody’s mind. This was pretty informative as well.

My Final Decision

After two days of research, I finally settled on video marketing as my niche. Now is just a matter doing my research and mind mapping to decide exactly what sort of product I am going to develop. As I go along in this research, I’ll keep you posted.

It’s one thing to follow along with me as I grow, but it’s another thing for you to actually implement the same thing I’m doing. If you want to make this easier for yourself and actually succeed in the Internet Marketing game, you might want to consider doing the same thing I’ve done. That would be getting yourself a coach and following his or her direction. After lots and lots of research of coaches and their programs, I finally decided on John Thornhill’s program. I think it’s the best decision I’ve ever made! If you’re unsure, you might want consider attending a free webinar from John Thornhill that fully explains how to actually become a professional Internet Marketer.

    Hi Larry,

    An interesting blog post buddy, showing your journey to where you are now and where you intend to be!

    I too subscribe to P2S (amongst others) and after a few attempts are back again 🙂 my blog will be active this week, so please pop across as it would be great to build a mutual active working relationship with like minded Marketers; I too have been in the past frustrated by the one way traffic I have encountered previously.

      Thanks for the comment!

      I am hope you’re as happy with P2S as I am. I’ve been with John for a month and I’ve learned more during that time than I had learned the previous two years. This is a great program! I wish you all the best!

    HI Larry, great post. I have also signed up with P2S great programme so far. Niche research is a hard one and something that took me a good while to look at, think about and then decide on. Look forward to reading more of your posts.
