is finding small, unused areas of the market that
occupy a special area of demand. A small corner of the
world that huge corporations have no interest in. These
little segment of the market can have a big impact on
the niche marketer. You won't have to worry about the
big conglomerates trying to squeeze you out because the
customer base won't be big enough for them to even care
about. They want to attract large crowds and make huge
sales off one giant website.
Try to set up
a website selling computers. Could you ever compete
with Dell and Gateway? No! They have an advertising budget
that is bigger than your annual income. There is no way
to touch that market.
How about a website
selling craft items. Do you think you could compete
in that field? Probably. There aren't any big corporations
fighting for your customers. Would you be able to make
a lot of money selling craft items? Some money but no
where near as much as if you sold computers. The difference
is you would actually be able to attract customers to
a craft site. and since there isn't a lot of competition
in this field, you will be able to keep your customers
for years to come.
How much could you
expect to make from this type of site? Some where around
$50 - $100 a month. Nice but not great.
The trick with
niche marketing is to set up one niche site after
another. Build a small but loyal customer base for each
site. If you were to make $100 off one site. Think about
the potential of having 10 sites.
Ten little websites
each bringing in around $100 each month. Not bad. Now
build another site and another one and another one...
Fifty little websites
each bringing in around $100 each month. Hmm... This is
looking pretty good.
Is niche marketing
really needed in a world full of websites competing
for income? Those who know how the system works will answer
"YES INDEED", because niche marketing is the
only system capable of filling up a gaping hole in the
market by catering to the unsatisfied needs of a smaller
group of customers. Needs that virtually go unnoticed
by the big leagues. Through niche marketing, you will
be able to gain a foothold in the market by being a needle
in a haystack. Small and inconspicuous websites that attract
small groups of people that need exactly what you have
There are an endless
supply of tiny markets out there that the big companies
with their big budgets are never even going to consider.
This is where you want to set your goals. Little by little
you could build a gigantic internet empire and just sit
back an watch the money roll in.
But how are you going
to find the time to research and build all these little
websites? This is where you are in luck.
2006 seem to have
become the year of niche websites. You can buy already
made websites that you just upload to your server and
start selling the products. There are many membership
sites that you can join for $50 to $70 each month. For
your membership price you will usually receive 3 new niche
websites each month. Some of these sites have content
and graphics only and you have to create the layout. Some
of these offer plug and play websites that are set to
use as is.
You will also
see many websites that are offering individual niche
websites that you can buy one at a time. Buy what you
want when you are ready for another site. These pre-built
websites are selling on an average for $15. Money well
spent considering you are saving yourself a month or more
in the time it would take for you to build one of these
All of these types
of ready to go sites that you can buy are sold in
small quantities. You can find sites that will only sell
100 of any given niche. I have seen this limit go as high
as 750. These limits are set so you will not have to worry
about too much duplicate content out there. You wouldn't
want to buy a website that 10,000 other people are buying
in the same month. Then your little niche would suddenly
be a big competition. 100 - 200 of any niche website is
a good quantity. You can be pretty sure no one will run
into two of the same websites when you consider the billions
of websites out there.
The people who
build these ready to go niche market websites do all
the work for you. You don't have to find the small, unique
markets. You don't have to create the content. You usually
don't even have to find the products to sell. These niche
site creators have done all the work for you. You just
change a few codes here and there so you will be getting
the credit for the affiliate sales and AdSense ads and
you are in business.
The greatest thing
about niche marketing is you don't need a separate
domain name for each website. You can have one general
domain name and add sub-domains for all your sites. You
are never going to find a cheaper way to break into the
internet income market.
