Know to Much For My Own Good?

8 replies
I was wondering do any of you know a lot about IM but feel like it overwhelms you from taking action? Because there are so many different ways of making money and the knowledge I have built up in my brain I tend to get overwhelmed quite easily and I know I'm not the only one here. Luckily i have finally decided to stick to building a list and creating a product but because I know so much it seems as though it is keeping me. Im currently going into the "muscle building" niche and did some keyword research and noticed according the online commercial intent tool by microsoft ad center its telling me that most of these keywords in this market have no commercial intent? should this tool be taken seriously? I know many products are already being sold in this market but it leaves a little confusion. Hope someone can help

    I would be really surprised if there wasn't any money in muscle building - there are heaps of programs out there that are making a fortune out of customers who are looking to build themselves bigger and better than before.

    I do understand what you are saying about the analysis paralysis - sometimes you just have to go with your gut instinct, start taking some action and then work out the bugs as you go.

    Best of luck with your new niche

    thanks lisa thats what I need to hear I gotta stop being such a perfectionist! I noticed hardy anyone advertising in google adwords for certain keywords which kind of scared me a little knowing that there are tons of money in this niche. Also microsoft ad center may be geared more towards physical products.

      Start taking action, build something, see what happens, adjust, take more action. Rinse and repeat, get success, scale it up, rinse and repeat.

        Yes Josh, unfortunately it is a common problem for a lot of us. I have the same affliction as you do. I think part of my problem and maybe yours is this information overload issue. One email after another touting the next best millionaire maker. Sometimes makes you think if you are doing the right thing or not. Do I sell clickbank? Do I sell physical products? Do I create my own product? Which niche to choose?

        It puts me in analysis paralysis.

    Theres a difference between thinking you know too much and actually knowing too much.

    Forget what you think you know, and just take action. Only by taking action will you get some real data about the niche you are trying to break into.

    For instance, common sense will tell you that there is a lot of money to be made in muscle building - you dont need to rely on a tool to confirm this. A quick google search brings up over 8 million results for that term. There are products being sold left right and centre, there are tons of adsense ads popping up, so you know people are bidding for that term in Adwords.

    The question you need to be asking is, is the niche oversaturated to the point where you can actually compete with the big boys. Muscle Building is a BIG niche, make no mistakes about that.

      If that is the case, then you find a sub niche in muscle building and use keywords for the sub niche. It's very similar to the weight loss industry. You will have a hard time competing if your keywords are weight loss, but less if you use weight loss for diabetics, weight loss for teens, etc...
