Niche Marketing - Tactics to Use To Make Money With Niche Marketing
Niche marketing has always been a key to any success in marketing but lately
it has become quite a prominent force in the online marketing world. Many books,
manuals, courses, and web sites have been developed that focus on niche
marketing. It is easy to find solid resources on the Internet that can teach
you how to make money with niche marketing.
Niche marketing online is a distinct segment of Internet marketing and is the
quickest way to get maximum exposure if you know how to leverage the search
engines to draw attention to your niche web site.
There's many things to learn to be successful and profit from niche marketing
and your USP (Unique Selling Proposition) will dictate exactly how to plan your
attack to successfully market to customers in your niche.
If you plan to use niche marketing to draw visitors to your web site, here's a
few tactics that you can use to make money:
Niche Marketing Tactic Number 1, "Research"
Fully utilize all of the research mechanisms that you can find in order to make
sure that you truly understand your niche and all of its nuances. This requires
understanding what tools are best to use so you can understand what your target
niche market does day to day, where they spend their time online, and what makes
them tick from a personal and business perspective.
Niche Market Research
offers free reports and articles to help you make the most of your research time.
Niche Marketing Tactic Number 2, "Define your paying niche"
Clearly define who will make up your niche market and make sure that the people
in that niche market are willing to pay for the solution that you provide to their problems.
A niche is a clear subset of a larger category. An example of what a niche market
is not: "People who want to learn how to shoot better scores in golf." In this
example, there are far too many people within the main category (golf) to make
this a true niche. Virtually everyone who plays golf will want to play better
and shoot better scores so this wouldn't qualify as a niche, much less a category
An example of a niche market: "Women who play golf who want to learn how to drive
the ball longer and straighter." This would be a niche because it clearly defines
and segments who you'll cater to and why they would need your service.
After clearly defining your niche market, you should make sure that they are
willing to pay for your services. The easiest way to determine this in the
online world (other than using common sense) is to find web sites that may be
close to, or even in your niche, and see if those web sites charge a fee for
In addition, you should look to see if there is a reasonable level of competition
between those web sites.
If you see more than a few sites listed on a SERP (Search Engine Result Page)
that cater to female golfers for a fee, chances are the people who are your
target customer will pay for your services for solving their problem - women
who can't consistently hit long straight drives in golf.
