Hi there,

I wonder, what market have you made the most money with?

IM, health, dating,...

I know, we are here in IM world, but many people make nice money with different markets (especially niches).

Please, share your experience...

All the best,
Georgia.

      Well one of the best markets for me a year or so back was ebay.

      Not selling products there, although of course I did, but the most profitable part was interviewing powersellers and creating ebooks from the interviews.

    Web hosting by far. I'm in the industry though and have been for years. I think you really need to find 'your' niche and entrench yourself there.

      Indeed! I have a client who's made a killing selling information that most people would never buy in a store - or admit to owning. When I took the project on, it meant stepping outside of my comfort zone just to write about it. We really didn't know in the beginning if it would work or not as there wasn't much competition at the time. But what surprised me most was the sheer size of the market eager to spend good money to download a "personal" information product.

    I've made the most money in services so far. Video creation, article writing, consulting, that sort of stuff.

    I started out writing for AssociatedContent, then wrote a bunch of articles for Ehow. Then when I realized you can really make money doing that sort of stuff, I found oDesk.com and got some jobs through that site. Now I find most of my clients through my own website.

    I do hope to build a product business however, in any niche that relates to my hobbies or my interests. I've found that if you're not interested in a topic, you won't be motivated to write the articles and do the work.

    All of the money I have earned so far has come through services: specifically writing. It's all about finding what you are good at, and finding someone to pay you for it. Everybody has SOMETHING they can offer as a service.

    Definitely weight loss (sub-niche of health) .

    Ever since I first got into IM I've mainly been interested in 2 niches- health and IM.

    They both have so many subniches that you can do just about anything you want with them!

    The vast majority of my income comes from selling products in various health niches. One of my best sites spits out $1000 p/m and I hardly ever touch it. I'm not going to give away the exact niche but I'll tell you how I found it.

    I was a newbie and clueless so I started digging around in the weight loss niche. I found a condition that makes it very tough for people to lose weight and normal dieting products wont work because these people have very specific dietary requirements. In fact, going on a "normal" diet would be counterproductive for these people.

    So I built a campaign around helping people with this condition and I recommend the products that really work.

    It's that simple.

      I won't go into specifics, but my most profitable markets have had some common characteristics.

      > They consist of "obsessive buyers", people who gladly buy multiple products in their niche. Think sports, hobbies, and 'special experiences'.

      > They have a high percentage of affluent to, pardon the expression, filthy rich buyers.

      > Tend to have a high concentration of baby boomers, especially empty-nesters or DINKs (Double Income, No Kids).

    Have you thought of freelancing: offer your skills for sale and get paid. You don't really need to be an expert to start earning. Some body out there can make use of the "stupidest" thought in your head right now and it is all a matter of finding them.
