My name is Chris and I live in upstate, NY which is about 1hr and half from the NYC. I have been studying internet marketing for the better part of 7 years now but have only had success the last 2 years, mainly because up until then I would only educate myself and wasn't taking any real action.
During that time finding an untapped niche was all the rave and the thing to do. My uncle at the time had bought some racing pigeons so I asked him "what the hell is pigeon racing?" after he filled me in I thought to myself this may be the untapped niche I had been looking for. I began researching and found that there was a small yet faith full community in this niche and I also found that it was indeed untapped. There were no digital products, no affiliates and noone doing any kind of internet marketing at all so I thought to myself this is a niche I feel I can get into and become an authority in.
I began by building a website and because I had no clue about this niche I simply found articles and content online and asked If I can post them on my site. I knew how important it was to build a list so I created a squeeze page. and because there were no products in this niche I created my first Clickbank product called "The Pigeon Racing Formula".
After all that I began updating my site daily and doing SEO and slowly my site began getting good organic rankings for some of my keywords and traffic slowly began flowing. I captured these leads into my list and began building a relationship with them by giving them good content. Once I had somewhat of a list built up I finally launched a few emails promoting my Clickbank product and in roughly 2 weeks I made just over $2,200.
I then began incorporating PPC and social media to drive targeted traffic and continue building my list and repeated the process.
I now have 4 clickbanC products and working on a 5th, over 6,000 subscribers on my email list, 7,000 fans on the fanpage and the site has since become an authority in the Pigeon Racing niche.
My goal now is to enter into a bigger more ever green niche, because although this tiny niche gave me experience and taught me many many good lessons it still hasn't given me the ability to go full time online as I still work a full time 9 to 5 CRAP!! day job.
If you have any questions or comments please feel free to let me know because I really do look forward to getting to know all of you.
Look forward to hearing from you
To your success!
