"I want to make money so what niche should I start with"?
The answer that usually follows is...
"First, find something you're passionate about."
Is that really the correct answer?
Shouldn't it be...
"Find a niche that's starving for a product or service and sell it to them." ??
Maybe you won't be passionate about that niche, but it will certainly be a money maker if marketed to correctly.
Personally, I love technology and the cool gadgets sold at Best Buy. But there's no way I'd be able to compete in that arena. It would take forever to get noticed let alone make any money. Sorry but I have a wife and kids to feed.
Right now I'm working on a site that has to do with making homemade ice cream. I've only made ice cream once in my life about 25 years ago and I sucked at it. But recently I stumbled upon a decent PLR product, did some keyword research, saw I could beat the competition and went for it.
Am I passionate about making homemade ice cream? Heck no.
But don't get me wrong. I like ice cream. Just ask the local Dairy Queen worker. But I'm starting to like making money more....which is why I'm changing my mentality to "money is my passion" no matter how I end up making it.
Will it be easier to write about stuff you like to do? Sure....and I still have a few websites that I work on which are more of hobby sites that make a few dollars here and there. But if you start thinking that "money" is your passion, you'll start thinking of IM as a business. Then you'll start making enough money that you can outsource all the boring mundane stuff while using the rest to pursue your real passions offline.
That's my quick 2 cents.....am I wrong?
