If you are looking into making money online and do a few searches, you will no doubt be inundated with hundreds of different possibilities and could stop right there in your search. Honestly, you would be right to do so, because as your search continues you would find even more aggravation in the money needed to invest. What makes me mad is the fact you do not find out how much it is to invest until after you are on the mailing list! When you find high dollar amounts being offered as” guaranteed” earnings I can not blame you for feeling insane after you see you have to refer a million people to get there. So the question comes to be, what are you going to do? Are you going to keep searching and pulling whatever hair you have remaining after your initial searching? Personally I would take a break and instead go with niche marketing and use some of the strategies they lay out for you!
Looking into niche marketing is not going to be a complete walk in the park for you by any means. There are after all tons of examples of niche marketing. Speaking of a walk in the park, that is an example of niche marketing you could “walk into” if you think about it. What is niche marketing anyway? If you have any business background than you would probably put niche marketing in a similar, if not the same, category as target marketing. If anything, you could consider the practice of niche marketing as going over your target market with a fine tooth comb. What are examples of target markets or niche markets? We already mentioned walkers, however to expand on it niche markets include dog groomers, athletes, “green” living people and so on.
How you would make money in niche marketing remains the question for you still, correct? This is where implementing affiliate marketing strategies comes into play. Let’s go back to our example of walking. You obviously can not affiliatize walking, but what are walking related items? Walking enthusiasts need top of the lines shoes, shoe soles, maybe a pedometer, and a headband. Look at the walker, what else do they show? From a marketing stand point they are aware of health benefits (the ones who walk during the winter are a prime example!) And tend to have an expanded awareness to health than a reality tv enthusiast would for example. Having a health awareness means they are probably open to information via eBooks or standard printed books. Other items you could sell them as an affiliate could be fish oil or maybe acai berry pills, and you can not forget vitamins.
When picking a certain topic in niche marketing what do you go for? I find the easiest to enter are those that fit in with your interests. This makes implementing an affiliate marketing strategy that much more plausible. If you are going to ask why again, it is because you are going to have to put work into it. Making a career out of niche marketing and not being burdened by adding new content means you would probably want to find enjoyment out of your endeavors, correct?
Before you implement your affiliate marketing strategy, you have to make sure there is a market. This is market research. It is actually also the first step in any affiliate marketing strategy! Once we have a realization for demand, we want to go and find products to promote. That is as easy as doing a Google search on” walking shoes” going back to our previous example. Next start writing content and put it on your blog. If you don’t have one you can find a free one at Blogger which is sponsored by Google. When coming up with your domain name, make a real effort to have your keyword in there!
