Best Strategies to Find a Profitable Niche
By Mark Malach
Begin With What You Know
When you set out to start your internet business, the first thing that you should think
about is what you already know. Make a list of your hobbies, interests, education and even
work experience. Almost anything and everything you can think of can be your profitable niche.
Now, use this time to think outside the box. Remember classes from high school and college
where you received information that might be helpful to other people, even books and magazines
that you read. Whatever knowledge you might have rumbling around in your head you need to write
it down and get ready to use it.
Go through a typical week in your life, what do you do on a daily basis that other people
might find beneficial. Are you able to home school children of different ages, do you feed
a large family on a very tight budget or do you have a chore system that keeps the house clean
and functioning no matter how many activities cloud the calendar.
There is plenty of information that you have right now that would help other people and
that many people would be willing to pay to learn.
The key is to get the possibilities laid out in front of you and then begin to build a plan
around that information that will help you create opportunities to start making some money.
Next, you might want to ask friends and family about what they think are some of your
strong points. Get the people that know you best to make separate lists about areas that they
think you excel and have the most knowledge in. The only right answers to this project are
lots of answers.
After all is said and done you will have several possibilities for launching your internet
niche. The next step is to decide which area is something you have a passion for and bring
you the most satisfaction. You will work harder at something if you have a real love for what
it is you are doing so make sure you pick a niche category that you will enjoy working with
day in and day out.
Choose Your Passion
Most everyone is good at something that they don't necessarily like doing, they have
the talent or a gift for it but just don't have the heart. Although it might be possible to
find moderate success in areas that you are simply good (or talented at) you will find much
more success in those areas where you have a deep seated passion.
1. What would you do if money was no object? If you won the lottery tomorrow or came
into an unexpected inheritance, how would you spend your time? If you would still go to work
every day because you enjoy it then you probably have a passion for your chosen career. If
you would spend all of your time working in your garden then your passion lies in your plants.
The things that you would do whether you could make money or not are the things that you have
the most passion for.
2. Would someone else pay you to do what you love? You might be surprised to find that
there are people in the world who hate to do the things that you love doing. Your neighbors
might be willing to pay good money to have you bring over a nice dinner each night or have
it in their own kitchen when they come home. Your green thumb might turn into some greenbacks
if you take some of your plants to the flea market or fairs and sell them to eager buyers or
you might do some digging in someone else's yard for a few extra dollars.
3. Can you turn the knowledge you have gained from your passion into a career? This goes
back to the same principle you discovered in number 2. Just because it's something you know doesn't
mean everyone else gets it. You can take your knowledge and love for numbers and balance other
people's finances for them. You can take your knack for saving a few dollars at the grocery
store and teach others to do the same or do it for them. Your knowledge and experience in an
area life may be the perfect way for you to create a living.
Finding your passion is as easy as 1, 2, 3. You Just need to ask yourself a few questions,
review the list of strong points and categories that you have generated and see where your
heart beats strongest.
What counts most here is your is your knowledge, experience and passion. You will soon have
some steps that will help you establish yourself as an expert in the categories you choose to pursue.
But Before you jump in too far, you need to test the waters a bit and see which direction
you need to be heading.
