Just because YOU'VE SEEN IT a million times...

...does not mean your future customer has.

Don't assume a niche is too flooded. Just because you look something up and see what looks like a lot of sites promoting the same thing doesn't mean there is nothing left.

There are some people who only sign onto the internet like once a month to do some shopping. There are thousands of people NEW to the internet every day.

They have not heard of clickbanks six pack abs - but this could be just what they are looking for. Or even better, it is not what they are looking for but they were somehow poking around on someone elses blog, and saw your name in the comments and decided to click through.

Now stop complaining that every hot niche or product is too flooded and competitive and go plant some seeds.

And don't assume just because YOU like to spend hours online surfing around that everyone else does.

    I so agree. That's why I believe that you can still make good money using PLR (not crappy stuff, high quality) - just because someone else is selling it too doesn't mean that all the customers have already seen it!

    So, how do you pick out the gems? I look at everything through my own distorted eyesight. How can I find the diamonds hidden in the coal?

      Well you have to look at the big picture. What is in? For me I saw opportunity in weight loss. Everyone wants to lose weight. They just dont know what works and what doesn't. I happened to stumble across a company that has a product that works, and works well. And it has made me quiet a bit of money. You just have to follow trends. But it seems like weight loss is always in. Until they find the right product. Check it out

    I agree with you Jill!

    I would also like to add more just becauses..."Just because it's easy for you to do doesn't mean everyone else knows how to do it." [Re: your how-to product]

    "Just because you know the secrets to _____ doesn't mean everyone else knows them too. [Re: your product creation]

    And yes, there are new people coming online everyday, who might not have previously had the problem they're now looking for a solution for.

    Thanks,
    Peggy

      You are right. That's why Internet has market for everyone. When a person markets a product, it is only seen by limited amount of people expose to the site.

      When an affiliate promotes his product, it will expose to more new people viewing the product. Every person that promotes his product will widen the exposure. Internet is currently viewed by billions of people in the world so individual promotion is only exposed to a small fraction of people.

      If you find a good product, DON'T hesitate to promote it even though you may have seen it countless of times. Why? There are billions of people have yet to view it. Every site markets a different viewership.

        Well said Jill!

        I too have made a fair bit of money in two of the biggest niches I know of!

        The bottom line is this: If products in your niche are selling, then there's a market for them.

        As to how to find a quality product, you can do a couple of things:

        1. Look for reviews or feedback online (google it!)
        2. Purchase the product and review it yourself.

        There are probably other ways, but that's all I could come up with at short notice! :-)

          Yeah I tried my product. I had great results. So I am my own testamony

  • This is true.

    The biggest thing when it comes to marketing like this is do something you love and enjoy doing. I mean even if it does have a big competition you research it and find out something that is not being done, and you focus on that and you will see huge success with that niche, even if it is flooded.

    Thanks for the reminder. I often lose sight of this very fact. Billions of internet users can't possibly all be going to the same sight. Yikes.

      Absolutely true. Lots of people in IM have a narrow idea of the market.

      For example, think "everyone" already knows about list building? Well, 99.99 percent of the people in the world have never heard about making money through building a list. The concept is brand new to them. And they will be amazed.

      The same can be said of any product.

      World is big. IM community still very small.

      Cheers,
      Ram

    Basically, I shouldn't give up on any clickbank products that have 90++ gravity yet?

    I kinda semi give up on my current adword campaign because I continue thinking that products that I am promoting were saturated.

    it is kind of funny. I have a site in a very competitive niche (1.4 billion sites) and my site is already in to 700K according to Alexa. This is my 7 day average. i am kind of happy with it. I also made over $4 in google adsense to. Just keep plugging away.

      Somebody who gets it.

      Too many IMers are way too close to this problem. They look at things
      through this myopic tunnel vision and think that everybody sees just what
      they see.

      You'll be surprised how many people don't even know about YouTube.

      Time to get out of your small little world and realize that there are folks
      out there who don't have a clue about anything.

      And what they're looking for...you may just be the one to lead them to it.

    very true.

    when you see a niche that is OUTSIDE online marketing, you should not worry about how big the niche is. it pays to worry if there is no product for that niche if the niche is viable-- but there are enough guppy owners out there for your product as there is for all the others out there.

    One thing I didn't mention earlier is that I went into a huge niche on purpose - just to see if my strategy worked, and I was making sales from day 11 after starting from scratch! No list, no website, nothing.

    I built a site (just a WP blog), set up blogger and wp.com sites, started writing articles and posts, and the dollars started to come in. I nearly fell over when I made that first sale because I thought it would take a lot longer!

    So I believe it is more about the quality of the product and how you promote it. Also, if you're using Clickbank products, read the sales page in full. Would you buy from that person? If you would, then there's at least a small chance someone else will!

    If you've tried the product yourself and you believe it's worth what you paid, then you have a good chance that others will feel the same way too. Just put yourself in your potential customer's shoes and think about what motivates them to buy. You're solving their problem remember!?
