Predicting the Future!

10 replies
Hi, I'd like to know your opinions regarding one of my goals. I'm planning to create a new site around a specific niche, but before creating this site, I'd like to hear your opinions and predictions regarding the optimum amount of money this site can make over time..So, lets say, I become one of the well known experts in this niche, How much money do you predict I can make after 3,5 years period because I think it's important to think of the consequences ahead before starting?

So, I hope you can share your opinions from your expertise....

Thanks in advance!

Note:"Don't over-complicate things, Qs like which field are you in, etc.. I don't like....Just think in terms of the average in every thing except that I can become expert in my field""

    My guess is that you'll make $0.

    I don't like questions like "why" so I'll just say you seem to lack the knowledge, skills and ability judging by the OP.

    No one can say for sure how much you will make, except maybe a psychic.

    Learn everything you can about Internet Marketing, find a niche, and work at it.

      Just rough predictions, for example when you set any goal, for sure you have predictions, otherwise, you wouldn't set an expected time frame in order to achieve any goal. So, if we reverse it and you set a goal of $1000 per day, and you're starting from scratch, can this be a one year goal or two or three year goal?

        The reason the answers a vague is that anything could happen to you website
        and dealing in what ifs shows you do not know enough in the MMO niche

        I would go away and think of one thing you could do really well than apply what you learn in your own product and thats where you make the bucks

    That's a good statement. "Predicting the future"

    You can use Google trends and other tools to kind of get an idea where things are going in a particular marketplace.

      I suppose it makes more sense than predicting the past.

      @the OP. We don't know you. We don't know your experience, your abilities, your contacts, your employment history, your record of successful enterprises, your character, your motivation. All we have to go on is the question you put in your post and our own assumptions, based on that, as to your chances of achieving your goals.

      And it's a poor question, because it focuses on the wrong goal.

      Success in business is about creating customers. You achieve that by creating value. If that isn't your primary aim when setting out, I predict you'll have zero chance of becoming an expert in any field.

    Your are a Pharmacist so why don't you concentrate on that area as I am sure you know a lot to blog about

    I am sure you would fit in a nice niche there and start to make $$$ through adsense and the like

    Why don't you just write down what you want us to answer. Then, we can all just copy and paste your own answer to your question and post it.

    You will make a gazillion dollars and be known world-wide as the leading authority in your niche.

    And - whenever I bend over, monkeys shoot out of my butt.

    Only one of these statements is true. Guess which one.

    Oops - gotta go, I have to tie my shoes and we all know what happens when I do that.

    Cheers. - Frank
