Which niche made your 1st $100?

by NeedBucksNow 201 replies
Hey. I was wondering if everybody could tell me which niche made them their 1st $100 online? Still new at having a website but can see how easy it can be to make money with the right niche/right traffic. Over time, I would like to reinvest back into more websites & eventually have 10-20 that could be making money with adsense & amazon. What do you think would be the best niches to use for these? I know it will take some time to get them all indexed and get regular traffic but I figure this is a great 1 year plan & I would love to make a living online

    The penis enlargement niche made me my first $100. I wont mention another super raunchy niche i was in that was pulling in $100's on the regular. Somehow i acquired morals and quit the super raunchy niche. But penis enlargement is incredibly converting. You have to develop backend products though and turn it into a real business.

      Haha. Funny what people will spend money on. I can see how you could get other sales along with that though.

I am guessing it would not be too crazy to create your own products in this space. You can find people giving away recipes all the time so find someone with 30, 50 or more recipes and ask if they would like to partner in putting an e-cookbook together using your marketing and their recipes. Best of Luck!
      Thanks. Good idea.

      Hilarious. Thanks for sharing - made me smile.

      My first $100 was in the dating niche. Competitive but the aff programs pay like $50 a lead so I was pretty excited

    I made my first $100 online filling out surveys believe it or not...

    I don't think the company I was signed on with is still around but I imagine there is still a bunch out there if interested.

    Now I didn't say if I recommended this method of earning money these days lol, imo there are much better and easier ways to make some good internet moola.

    Talk about some edgy content for your first $100.. wow haha

    Mine isn't that exciting.. mine was actually in the affiliate marketing niche.

    I created my own little info product on how to make quick affiliate sales and I started selling it pretty quickly.. my suggestion to new marketers is to focus on niches where your customer is desperate for quick results.. (as many affiliate marketers are new marketers looking for a quick buck online)

    of course, there are more advanced affiliates and these guys make serious money, but I wasn't targeting this sub niche when I started, just newbies

      Cool. Looks like using clickbank is a decent way to go. Just always worried about getting chargebacks. Kind of why I would rather stick with physical products from amazon but may make a couple review sites of high rated clickbank products 2.

        I made my first $100 (and more) from forex. As a trader, not as a marketer.

        I made my first $100 as a marketer by writing articles for people (haven't done that since 2008).

        You don't need to worry about refund-rates with ClickBank products, BBB: It's true that in some areas (e.g. MMO-related, betting-related and forex-related) the products do, collectively, have slightly higher-than-average refund-rates because of the nature of their sales pages, and the fact that some of them are crap, but products that incur high refund-rates across the board are swiftly removed from the Marketplace by ClickBank, because if the refund-rate is above a certain proportion, the administrative and transactional costs of handling the refunds will outweigh the 7.5% they make on the other, non-refunded ones. So those situations are often temporary.

        Some affiliates have high refund-rates for some products, while other affiliates have very low refund-rates for those same products.

        Some affiliates promoting multiple products across multiple niches tend to have high refund-rates for almost every product they promote, while other affiliates similarly promoting multiple products across multiple niches have refund-rates around 0.5% or even lower for everything they promote. It's the affiliates who determine this, for the most part. Someone else's refund-rates don't have to any relevance to your refund-rates at all. You get to determine those on your own.

        "Review sites" are really a very poor way to aim at ClickBank sales.

        And it depends what "ratings" you're referring to. For myself, as an affiliate, I'd always keep well away from "high-gravity" and "high-popularity" products because those tend to be the hardest to sell (unsurprisingly, if you think about it? ), and sometimes even their conversion-rates are among the lowest, too.

          Made my first $100 writing articles actually, then I moved on to starting a blog on positive thinking (I've earned $47 so far on adsense with the blog being 2 months old soon) and now I'm working on a new project on business-psychology that will be released within 2 months (Mind Scholars if anyone's interested). Otherwise that's it right now I guess, think I'm going to start writing articles again, maybe post a few proposals on Elance!

    If I remember correctly, the first niche I made money in, including my first $100, was in the "learn Spanish" niche. I was a Spanish major in college and was a part of the niche, knew how to connect with the audience, was familiar with some of the products and so on. I was able to type from my head when it came to coming up with the content.

    The "best niches" are relative. Outside of making sure the niche you're in is a profitable one, the niches you go into have a lot to do with what you're interested in and so on. For instance, I've made money in the gardening niche selling a particular type of indoor garden, but I gave up that niche because outside of a few specific products, I wasn't into the niche as a whole.

    Good luck,
    Joey

    Back in 1998-1999 the good ole days I was doing website submissions. I had a friend that owned an advertising agency in Malibu, Ca. She would pay me $800.00 to submit her clients websites. Can't imagine what she charged her clients. LOL

    So you could say, that I hit the ground running and have not stopped since.

    Well, as they say...all good things must come to an end.

      Actually, my first sales were of a 1k to 2k product I developed for myself. I typically create stuff I need to use and then update it based on feedback from customers.

      My first program was in the real estate niche. I was in that niche, myself, and created something for me to use. There wasn't much out there at the time so I decided to try selling it.

      I didn't know anything about online stuff. Nothing about affiliate marketing but I did know there were local groups that had these rei gurus coming in that gave them a cut of sales. So I started contacting the leaders of these groups and pitched my product.

      I only had a few takers but it resulted in some sales. I was charging 1k to 2k for different versions.

      Sometimes we forget the people aspect of this internet thang.

  • One that I wrote back in 2005 was called "107 Ways to Catch A Cheating Man!" showed great promise, but I gave the entire thing, rights and all, to a friend who wanted to enter the digital publishing field.

    I spent two months undercover, posing as various females in chat rooms, and taking notes as to the various types of married slimeballs that would approach me. From Doctors to ditch-diggers, I gathered an immense collection of data. My ebook manuscript included a discount offer for CheckMate, which was a chemical swab that would detect semen in undergarments. Useful for BOTH genders in suspicious circumstances.

      My 1st $100 was selling Amazon cookbooks on a recipe site back in 1997/98. This opened my eyes to affiliate marketing. Then I tested adult, did well and stayed there for 10 years. Mainly doing media buys / adwords for traffic. Then expanded to mainstream seo'd blogs monetizing with adsense (finance & law). Top 10 Review style blogs do well for me.

    I made YouTube videos of me doing it and had over 20,000 subscribers in 2011. I made well over $2,000 believe or not within a 2 month period.

    I was 14 back then too, had to stop once my PayPal got limited.

Just how to register your domain, put up wordpress and find a free theme. It was very simple but it helped some people and I made my first $100

    This was back in like 2003 or 2004 - there was this ebook called "Google Cash" the only one that made me the money it promised. ... I found that the "People Search" niche was undeserved. Before Google's relevance algorithm started penalizing me, I put in the 200 or so most common first names and promoted a clickbank people finder product. For a long time, I was the only one doing that.

    I probably profited about $30K before the competition and relevance rules hammered me.

    Hi,
    I made my first 100 in the im niche. Specific nich of soload. As I am a soload vendor after having be coached and learning the system efficiently.
    I also had made more than 100 in the mlm industry and by promoting IM products, specially list building and traffic courses. So my opinion is that you surely can make $100 in the IM niche. You can make a review site and promote it via paid traffic. I dont recommend trying to rank it as it takes too much time.
    I am getting now into the personal development niche as I learned that it is a very good niche also where you can make money.
    You should always aim to these 4 big markets: wealth, health and relationships and hobbies.

    Have success!

      Actually the car insurance niche based on organic traffic from Google.

      Back in the days you could easily spam your way to the top, now I understand that car insurance is very competitive but I used some keywords that relate in some way to car insurance. Eg they look up certain things prior to purchasing a car, not talking about compare car insurances either.

      So sometimes you just need to take a different angle to gain from very profitable niches.

      I never really did much online besides liquidate the contents off a 200,000 sf warehouse on ebay which brought in $200k. That was in 2003. That was up until 2012. I've been a full time stock trader for 12 years and I realized that nearly every product related to trading was a scam and didn't work as claimed. I decided to create a product which detailed my own profitable method on trading. While I haven't spent as much times as I would like on market, I was still able to bring in about $60k from from first product which is alright.

    My first $100 came from a 60 page book on Radio Controlled Helicopters and I sold it in the model magazines (made $40K in 6 months) The cost me 0.83 cents to print and I sold them for $8.95 to individuals and $6.95 to hobby shops.

    Then I made a gear calculator program for off roaders and made nothing

    Then I developed a remote camera for race cars (like the goPro but way earlier) - I made them in my basement and sold them for $500 - Did pretty well for a while

    Then eBooks on personal development and direct marketing - I used to sell these in Small Business Opportunities Magazine and now update them every year and give them away. I made way more selling them in Magazines but they are now my lead in for my funnel.

    Now I have products like:
    GoKart Racing Secrets
    The Amateur Racers Guide to Sponsorship
    WebToolCoach - coming out very soon with 500+ videos
    and others

    Keep plugging away and don't let anyone tell you that you can't make money in a small niche. Frankly I find it much easier than the Internet Marketing space as in Hobby Niches' people are hungry and spontaneous - they just buy with now other crap like having to give people sample copies and getting reviews early, having people bash your product for no reason, etc. etc. The small niches based on a hobby is where the easy money is in my experience.

    If you then write the sales letter so it targets what they "Want" instead of what they "Need" and you also equate it somehow to why it will make either their health, wealth or relationships better - you will have a home run.

    You can just as easily coach someone how to speed up their race car as you can on how to do a marketing funnel, and its way more fun and there is no competition.

    Just some things to think about.

    Specifically an add-on for WOW known as QuestUp.

    I built a Squidoo page (I was a Pioneer! I'm so cool!) that I accidentally optimized for the nickname the product would become known as. I think it was actually "Team Idemise Leveling add-on."

    It got on page 1 and for almost a year it generated a $26 commission every five or six days. I credit that early success for carrying me through what was otherwise a kinda bleak newbie year.

        True. I'm an ex-smoker so I guess I can relate to what it feels like to want to quit. I understand what you mean though as you should pick a topic that you know and are passionate about as well. It's kind of cool that when you are writing about stuff you love, it doesn't even feel like work

    The very first niche you could say I made my first $100 in would be in the health/nutritional arena, through an MLM company I used to be involved in called Melaleuca.

    Hard to make a go of it in most mlm company's these days. I remember reading in a Melaleuca disclaimer that only 1-2% or something around that, of people that joined Melaleuca earned any sort of money at all.

      Yeah. I was in Zija another nutritional/mlm business for a little while & even though it was a good product, it was too expensive to stick with and even my team leader that was making $5K a month ended up leaving it as well. Almost better to stick with things that people have to have as they are almost guaranteed to make money eventually

  • Internet Marketing. Email Processing in particular. It was a simple website that i had setup and did some craigslist advertising for. It was residual based, so i earned the money every month until the person canceled on me. It was similar to alot of the MLM's that are out here today except i just took the middleman out and made 100% of the money and had my own paypal button so no waiting days or weeks to get paid. Instant Bread. Just how i like it and just how it should be.

      Cool I should be earning my 1st check from an SEO site I have next month & have already made about $134 now from 3 subscriptions!!! I really like the residual income part as well & is nice to know that you will keep getting paid as long as they keep it.

    For me it was the skin care niche. Made my first hundred and then made over 5 figures that same month! I can still remember it like it was yesterday. Struggling for 2 years and then making this in one month gave me a feeling of satisfaction i can't reall describe. The funny thing is 3 months later, i was actually making more than that first month but it still didn't give me that same feeling like the first month. The human minds a funny thing.

    A few affiliate codes and some articles with a couple backlinks would rank really well.

    Since they were pretty expensive, you got a good enough affiliate commission so that was an easy $100.

  • I am still working on my first $100 earned online, and it will almost surely be selling followers, likes retweets, etc. on Twitter and Instagram. The good news is that it didn't take that long to achieve, once I found something that is fnally working for me. I'm certain that as I become more trusted, the sales will begin to snowball.

    Anyway, I spent years trying to achieve and for various reasons, never met with success. I am not a genius, but I am a quick learner. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how many times you get knocked down, it only matters how many times you get back up.
