IMHO it's simply 10X easier to create a profitable online based business if you choose to operate in markets that have nothing to do with selling how to make money materials.
- Lots of newbies get into online business and initially try to operate in the how to make money niche...
...don't do well and tragically also believe that the how to make money niche is the be all to end all.
They had a hard time and now they want to quit.
I suspect 100's of 1,000's have quit not understanding that there are many other options available for them.
- Lots of people have switched their operations to other lucrative niches and then found success.
Why IMHO is it easier to operate in other markets?
#1: You're not competing against world class marketers in the most competitive niche other than the porn
#2: Most everyone in the how to make money niche are promoting at least an affiliate product or service and...
...very few are interested in buying your product unless they are looking for another option because what they're using now is not working.
#3: It's easier to get your prospects to do what you want them to do in other markets:
#4: The new and large Web 2.0 world is much more receptive to non money making offers:
#5: It's easier to get truly responsive visitors to your offers:
I'm not saying newbies and non earners ( people that have been around awhile without making money ) can not make good money in the how to make money niche but...
...why not choose the path of least resistance when it comes to the important task of gaining more financial control of your life?
Hope This Helps!!
Ps. Since we're at a online business forum, of course it makes a whole lot of sense to have a online business offer in your sig file but for newbies and non earners the money that's going to change your financial picture more likely will come from other niches.
