Warriors i need your help again !

by Marian Berghes 19 replies
Sorry if i ask too much for help, but its better to ask first right?

I found a niche that i want to make a product and then sell it, something relative new. so its not that much of a hype over it and i searched google and i dont have too much competition. the idea is starting to get some attraction but not even close to something like "how to earn money with adsense" etc..

Now...my questions are:
1. Think its worth it to get into a niche that isnt highly searched yet?
2. Also, is there any website similar to clickbank that takes care of the ordering part, but free? cus i know clickbank requires you to pay 50$ to sell.
3. Does Blogspot or wordpress allow me to sell my product on my blog? cus i dont really have the money to buy domain and hosting right now.

i think that is enough atm. again... any help will be very appreciated.

    You must get your own domain name and hosting to make the most out of IM. Remember to use a .com name for your niche.

      yeah i know that would be better...but i am interested if i am allowed to make something like a sales page using a blog and if it can be done...if i can get traffic etc... keeping in count that this niche is not very big yet.

    My answers:

    1. A niche that is not searched for much doesn't always mean that there's no market. Are there any cross markets that would allow you to leach customers.

    An example of this would be:
    There is not much attention given to large dog pooper scoopers but, there is a lot more interest in training your great dane. So you would to cross promote between the training your great dane sites and your large dog pooper scooper. You can do this through Google, instead of mainstreaming it.

    2. Google Checkout (for now anyway)

    3. No. I understand your predictiment but why would you want some other unknown identity have the control to shut your business down?

    Here's a possible avenue for you: You have an internet access vender...right? Many internet service providers also furnish a minimum package for a website. Like with AT&T, Verison, Cable Company access or whoever your service is already through. Check to see if your account also includes webspace along side of your email account.

      Not having your own domain is kind of hard I went through that myself. what I did was I found someone with a website related to what I was selling and did a kind of Joint venture thing where they would promote my product on their site and I sent them a percentage of the sales I got till I could afford my own domain. you might be able to do this as well

        i am trying to make an office live website new..since its all free...ill see if it works for my country.
        the market for my product will be basically every1 that has a online business involving selling a digital product or the ones that just start, the market will be big...only this particular "search term" if you wanna call it like that is not that searched alot. but i think i can find a few keywords that i can put to get traffic from both sides

        In my opinion jumping into a market that is small and hardly has any traffic yet is a bit risky.

        Remember you want this site/blog to make you money everyday and if the market isn't big enough eventually your going to have to do something else to succeed.

        So I would suggest doing some research into bigger marketers to try and find a sub market you can slip into that you know will have traffic pouring in day after day.

            Just make the product, then...

            I'll pay for your domain name for one year and server costs for 60 days till you have a chance to get on your feet.

            I think you have more than a couple of competing products.

            Have you searched all possible terms for video sales letter? Like video squeeze page?

            I'm not saying don't do it, but you may have a lot more competition then you realize and you may want to do a lot more research to show how your product is really unique or different.

            Something else to consider as well - while the end all be all is for you to sell your own product, why not affiliate for the products that are already there? Make some money so you can get your domain and hosting.

                      I would recommend making your product available in both languages.

                      That is the advantage for you.

                      You'll be able to blog and write articles in two languages, giving you double content and a wider marketing area.

    Domain $10 / yr.
    Hosting $3.95 / mo.

    Go to Elance.com or Getafreelancer.com and write a couple articles for someone and get yourself a website!

    As far as a niche w/o traffic yet that all depends...if you're anticipating the iPhone III or something that's not a bad idea... I much rather go for steady, proven markets.

    If you decide that a website is out of your budget range then use Squidoo, Wordpress, and Blogger to get a few sales...then invest in a website and point the links from your Web 2.0 sites to your website.
