Pest Controle as a niche.

8 replies
Hi Guys,
First of all thank you for taking the time to read this post.
A good friend of mine works for a pest control company. He really is obsessed about insects and bugs and talk about it all the time. He wants to create a blog to write about it and would like to monetize it and get some residuals off it.

I did some research for him to see if there are avenues to monetize the website and could not find much. In all honesty I think it is not a niche worth investing in as there are not that many products on clickbank or elsewhere to sell. I cannot get myself to tell him that though. I do have a blog about trailers myself and I am not getting even one visitor on it so I might not be the best person to advise him on that.

If you guys have any ideas on how he could monetize please feel free to drop a line.

Thank in advance for any input.

    Use it as a lead gahtering system and sell the leads to the pest control people in the area of the person who inquires.

    He writes great information and at the bottom tells them to click here to get rid of their pest problem. He captures leads and sells them to a nationwide pest control like Orkin or Truly Knolan etc...

    Or, he writes a pest control ebook bible and sells it on the site.

    Or, he puts adsense on the site and get's paid per click.

    Have a good one, Patrick

      I think the lead gathering feeder Enfusia brings up is a really viable way to go.

      I know many Pest Control Companies when be very happy to pay a finders Fee to secure new business.

      Seems like a no brainer to me

        Another approach might be to write (or have written for you) a book on how to control common pests with solutions that don't kill family pets, harm the environment, or cost an arm and a leg.

        Just get a little creative . . . but first let online demand show you where this market is desperately seeking a solution. Niche down to specific types of pests. When folks search online for solutions to getting rid of mice in their home . . . they don't search for "pest control." So be very specific.

        Good luck,

    Enfusia gave you some great advice.

    I'll just add that he should start with bedbugs. They are a problem in the US right now and a lot of people aren't aware that there are natural alternatives that actually work. (Like diatomaceous earth...microscopic shards that adhere to a passing bedbug. As the bedbug walks around, the shards cut through the insect's waxy coating. This causes them to die of dehydration. You don't want to intentionally breath the stuff for long periods, but it's otherwise harmless and vacuums right up.)

    My brother brought bedbugs home with him from a trip to NYC. We used daitomacous earth, mattress covers and essential oil spray. They were dead within a few weeks. This won't work if there is already a heavy infestation.

    I wouldn't put the main focus on natural remedies (for obvious reasons), but it could make for some great linkbait.

    On the whole, you get what you pay for.

    I would do something like this + Patrick's ideas.

    After you promote your book, sell them to control companies.
