Samuel Brannan never looked for gold, but selling shovels, picks and supplies to miners made him California’s first millionaire.
Did all the miners become rich and find their “pot of gold?” Not a chance. Most of them wasted time and meager resources only to return to their original homes, poor and discouraged.
I have an offline business and ventured into a hobby online little venture and have purchased shovels and picks to get better results in the search engine pages, seo and ppc. ( wont be giving up the offline business at this rate)
In my time here i can see a lot of shovel and pick sellers and they are doing very well.
Moreover, i think this business of selling the equipment to the internet marketers is much more profitable than say finding a "niche" market like millions of people out there, niche this niche that, sub-niche of another niche, rebranding that niche if too many are selling the same or similar products.
This is my observation in a short time online. When i see the newbies questions in the forums, " how can i make money online", i feel my toes curling up in my boots.
It is becoming cringe worthy...however my statements are made to be knocked down and would welcome good honest appaisals of people doing well without selling shovels and picks to the newbie gold miners!
I HAVE NOTICED THE FULL TIMERS ARE THE ONES, SELLING THE SEO,MARKETING SKILLS, ARTICLE WRITING, BACKLINK SERVICES, SOFTWARE, WEBSITE TEMPLATES, SELLING COURSES.
COULD i FIND ONE SELLING A PRODUCT?
