Well here is a little help in getting started.
This guide is meant to help you find a niche that will not only make you tons of money. But keep that money coming in for years and years to come. If you are looking for a list of popular Niches just search on the Warrior Forum you will find several good threads that cover hundreds of different niches.
What I want to get across to you is that you will much better off finding a niche that both interests you and that you have experience with. If you do not have experience a desire to learn about a specific niche will suffice. One thing to make sure of is that there is more then one way to monetize your list.
What you don't want is a list of 10,000 subscribers and there are no products to offer your customer. Be sure to check various affiliate programs for ways to make money with your list. Here are a few Clickbank, Jvzoo, Market Health, Commission Junction, even Amazon. For more options just Google "Your Product Affiliates" you will be shocked at the search results.
Tip #1 Make sure that there is more then one method to "Monetize" your list. Nothing worse then putting all your eggs in one basket and the affiliate program you were using goes defunct. You always need several backups. As time goes by to keep your list productive you need more and more products to sell.
When you are trying to decide just which Niche that you plan to conquer make sure that you are using an "Evergreen" niche. What is that you ask? You want something that people are always going to need Weight Loss or How to Quit Smoking will always be popular, while something like Jail Breaking an iPhone 5 will fade away once new iPhones are released. Remember this is the Internet the work you do today will pay for years to come if you pick the right Niche.
Alright think about your interest's and hobbies. Do you like to Golf? Play Tennis? How about knitting or sewing? These are just a few niches that there are millions of people are always looking for information or new products. Any type of hobby or sport can be used to build a list.
Tip #2 Do you have the ability to produce your own product? Not only will you make all the money. It allows you to project yourself as an expert in the field.
If you are reading this on the Warrior Forum chances are that you are on several mailing lists in the IM or MMO niche that you are marketing to you daily. But this is not the norm online, your average man or woman in the US is on maybe one or possibly two lists. These are related to some problem or hobby that are looking for information on.
It may be how to perfect their golf swing or maybe they want to learn to sew. They are openly searching for these answers. So they are willing to buy your products.
Be sure to provide your list with good up to date information, take the time to know what you are talking about. Your subscriber base will anxiously await you email, if you have your finger on the pulse of your niche. In turn your open rate will skyrocket. The more of your emails that get opened and read, the higher your percentage of sales.
Points to Remember:
- Pick a Niche that you enjoy.
- Deliver your list good information on a regular basis.
- Do not send offers to your list everyday.
- Only offer products that you would use yourself.
- Make sure that the products you offer will solve their problems.
- Treat your list like they are your best friends.
- Sales = MONEY!
