Maybe some of you know who "Vilad" (sp?) is. He's this Israeli exercise guru who came to America + struck it RICH. He has this exercise TV SHOW where he does the workouts on the beach in Hawaii.
Here's the thing, the show has been on the air (presumably 1x/week) for TWENTY-FIVE YEARS! How can this be? If workout (show) #3 will get you fit, how in the world does that episode differ from episode #33, or episode #303?!?! I mean, what could POSSIBLY be the reason to watch the show more than MAYBE 6 times? How many possible variation could there really be!?!?!
How is it possible to interject enough COMPLEXITY or variation in something so basic? It' like, how long would my new show called "How to Walk" last?
Same thing with niches. I saw a webinar with a very prominent marketer who has a blog about meditation. He says he has PLENTY of subscribers + followers, etc. I beleive him. But what I can't wrop my head around is this -- if you know how to meditate, you know how to meditate. Where in the world do "endless variations" or "more stuff you need to know" on an ONGOING basis?
If some had approached ME to invest in such a niche in the form of an ongoing blog with constantly updated "fresh" content, I laugh them out of the room, saying, "What IN THE WORLD am I going to tell them (the followers) after the 3rd day?!?!"
I have no doubt the Dr. K's blog does quite well. I just don't get the mindset of that type of niche. I see that as a flaw IN ME. I can see how my own blind spot in this regard could easily cause me to miss out on niches that are perfectly profitable!
Any thoughts on this topic?
