Not all that long ago, the only threads I was posting in here were to the tune of ''Please help me to ....'' or ''How do you ....'' etc.
Now, after being in the IM scene for a while and taking in everything I could in the phenomenon that is the War Room (what's your excuse for not being a member?), I finally feel free of the ''newbie'' status I labelled myself with.
I now have 4 websites (3 of which are not in the IM niche) and I am working on my first product launch.
After receiving so much from this forum, its now time for me to start contributing and giving back to the forum.
This little research method is probably well known already, but I am sure there are plenty of newbies who are struggling to find a niche to get started in and could benefit from this tip.
So here it is:
1. Go to flippa.com, go down and click on the ''Just Sold'' tab. You will see a list of websites that have recently been sold.
2. Go through the first 5 pages, listing with a pencil and notepad which niche market each website listed is in. Visit the websites to see if they target a niche in general or if they target a specific micro niche (e.g. is it about skateboarding in general , or about wheels for skateboards?)
3. Go through the list you've made and make a short-list of the top 4 or 5 niches that appear most
You should now have a choice of at least 4 possible niches to work in. The nice thing about this method is that since you know people are prepared to buy websites in these niches, you already have an indication that they are profitable niche markets to work in. But remember, its always advisable to do as much market research and analysis as possible.
If anybody else has any quick ideas to quickly find a niche market, please share them here.
All the best in your marketing efforts...
