Ever read the advice, "Make a list of the topics you're interested in and start your business around one of those"? I'm sure its bound to be sound advice, after all, it gets repeated enough on marketing forums...
However, if you've been involved in Internet Marketing for any length of time, I'll bet you have made more money from stuff you ain't interested in; like acne products or hair restoration. If it happens to be a HOT product at the time, we go after it. That's marketing 101.
But, this post is not about picking a niche to get into; Its more for the new marketers that are still struggling to just get started and it still has to do with making lists.
What I'd like to suggest today is that you make two lists. List #1 should be about what you like to do online; write copy, build web sites, etc and, List #2 should be about what you don't like to do online; create products, rewrite articles, etc.
If you're honest with yourself, these lists should give you a pretty good insight into where you need to start looking when considering what online business model you should follow.
If you don't like creating products, writing copy, or dealing with customer support, then you may be happier with affiliate marketing. When you sell other people's stuff you don't have to deal with that.
If you like building web sites, designing graphics, writing copy or articles, then perhaps you should seriously look into starting an online service oriented business or flipping web sites.
See what I mean, guys? First, find out Who You Are!
If you know what you like to do and are good at it, then it makes it sooo much easier to get yourself pointed in the right direction. There is just no need to constantly jump from one thing to another because, finally, you know exactly who you are and where you're headed.
