Should I carry on trying to promote in this niche or start in a slightly bigger market with more products? Thanks!

    IMO you need to have an interest in the niche your promoting when you first start out. This allows you to stay motivated when things dont go how you want.

    it's all about quality, not quantity.

    find a niche that you are interested and knowledgeable in, that's way you can get more creative with your marketing because you know your product

    It's only a mistake if you don't learn from your experience.
    A lot of marketers will tell you that you should stick to areas where you have an interest. This is because there will be times when you hit road blocks or get board. It will be your general interest that keeps you going for the long haul. This sounds like good advice to me.
    I've heard of some people who have gotten into niches they didn't care about and just fell in love with the IM process in general. They are all business. I think it's possible to keep it going if you don't have the love.

    Lastly, there is an old chinese proverb :
    "if you do what you love you will never work a day in your life"

    Take Care.

    Well let me just advise you straight away, Mirus, DO NOT "start in a slightly bigger market with more products". This will only cause bigger problems, since you are feeling very uncertain about what to do.

    What I advise is stick with your niche and do some further research to see if your niche actually spends money.

    In addition, you should find out what their unmet need or problem is that they are facing that no one or in many cases, very few people, actually provide the answer to and see where they're searching for solutions other than just google keyword searches.

    I highly suggest you find one that you're interested in, passionate about, or just something you see yourself being successful in. I mean you are going to be spending all your time and effort on this niche, so why not make it something you're somewhat interested in to make the effort both worthwhile and lucrative.

    And if you're still having trouble and can't figure out a solution then I highly recommend you allow yourself to gain deeper and clearer understanding of how to "find" a profitable niche by reading Eben Pagan's infamous pdf report, called "The Niche Intelligence Report".

    It's simply amazing and was the MAIN resource that finally helped me "find" my profitable niche market.

    Hope this helps...
