I was chatting with a friend a week back who makes a livable income off of his affiliate websites, he started back in 2007. He said it's getting harder to corner profitable niches and coming up with unique ideas, as the market is becoming saturated with people doing this. I've been trying to research ideas all week and I'm starting to think he has a point.. it's very discouraging. How does one compete with big name websites? It seems like every idea I have, there are 10 websites monopolizing my niche.
