I just heard an expert say on something that the IM niche is way to competitive for newbies or wannabes. That's wrong. Dont think that for a second. No niche is too competitive including the IM niche.
Think of it this way...
5 years ago, when we'd launch a product, we'd be lucky to get 20 or so people to promote that product launch. NOW? Tons and tons of people have lists in this market. I mean, I've come across people that nobody has heard of before, who have 10,000+ IMers on their lists.
That means, there's a heck of a lot more people to get to promote for you now, than there used to be. There are launches now that do a million and still most of the market has never even heard of the launch. I've noticed million dollar launches not even brought up here. In the past, this place would be hopping with posts about those launches.
Anyone (even you) can make money in this market. Heck, just look at the WSO section now!! I can only imagine that with more competition, comes more opportunities for those who focus on the power of "direct response marketing" fundamentals.
Anyway, I say... If you want to go with your passion... and that passion happens to be the Internet Marketing niche... GO FOR IT AND KICK SOME ASS!
And, if anyone tells you differently, send them to me. I'll drag them outside and...
Happy 2011 My Peeps!
