Finding Your Niche in a Work at Home Business

I found a good article today, that I thought some might benefit from, so I'll post this here today!

Copyright © 2005 Stephen Wright

If you haven't heard the word 'niche' being batted around by Internet Marketers then you haven't been listening. Finding a niche has become the antidote to competing in overly saturated online markets.

What is a niche?

According to Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary a niche is described as "a place, employment, status, or activity for which a person or thing is best fitted... a specialized market".

Have you noticed that despite the closing of many businesses in these harsh economic times, the local hobby train store is still around? That the 'hole-in-the-wall' eatery is thriving? Or that trends such as scrapbooking can start with a bang and still close within a year when four similar businesses start up in the same area?

The online business world reflects the same trends as experienced in the offline world - often with faster turnover and startup rates. Those who promote a product or site that targets a small, select audience can tap into a market that is otherwise not being served. Despite the limitations of the client base, the targeted nature of the business creates a devoted and active market - the aim of any business.


Finding a niche requires diligent research. Whether you have access to software that harvests and sorts information or you take a manual approach you must first start with ideas.

With a pen and paper (or computer, if that's more comfortable) brainstorm a list of businesses, products and industries. Create a list of keywords and phrases you think would be used by individuals looking for these items online.

Use a software program such as Wordtracker or a free resource such as the Overture Keyword Selector Tool to find keywords for your niche that have a high amount of traffic.

Although a program like Wordtracker makes it easy to find details such as how many sites compete for that market, you can also do your own research.

Concentrate your attention on question phrases such as "how do I..." or "where can I...". These questions will clue you into potential markets that need servicing.

Next, look in Google Answers. Type one of your keywords into the search area. What questions are being asked and how much are people willing to pay for answers? If you find a group of keywords with a high number of questions then enter these words in your browser's search engine.

What sites come up? Do they provide answers or solutions to the problem? How are they making money? Can you see an opportunity to service these individuals?

Finding a niche can open the door to a profitable online business. Research the market and be certain that your product or service is valuable to this group. Find forums or groups that target this audience and pay close attention to their concerns.

If you can help these people you WILL make money. The best of both worlds!

Online Marketing: Pixel Advertising

Pixel Ad sites are marketing tools that's poping up everywhere. Pixel ad sites are like online billboards, where advertisers can post a small pixel size logo of there business to other online viewers and get a link back to their sites. Do this form of advertising work? Well advertising is all about Grabbing the viewers attention, building Curiosity, and asking for them to take action. I do think if you add a pixel size ad, that really stands out from all the rest, it would grab the viewers attention. Next we have to build Curiosity and ask for action with our alt text, let it be short and to the point, similar to text link advertising (Just an example: If I was going to promote a program using a pixel ad, where you get free traffic, I might would try this: Free WebSite Traffic Click Now). By adding click now in your alt text, you are asking for the viewer to take action and click thru to your site.

How will you know if your pixel ad is getting clicked thru to your site? By tracking your link, you'll know how many people actually visted your site each day from your pixel ad. You can get a free link tracker and other free online marketing tools here:
. If you have more than 1 pixel ad, track each link, and see which are getting the best results.

Motivation: Negative Thinking

We covered your reason why yesterday, so we are going to cover Negative thinking today. You will see why you will need all the motivation you can get. You may not know this, but there are people in this world, that has nothing better to do than wait for their chance to bring people down. These are the people that you see, that always look unhappy (better known as a sour puss) they will tell you every reason why something won't work. They are programmed with a negative mind, and these types of people will never acheive any goal, because they will find every reason why they shouldn't. I always try to avoid these types of people, but having family members who are negative thinkers, it's hard to avoid them all. My family will tell me, every reason why I will fail online, and believe it or not, they don't even know how to turn a computer on. You see a sour puss can't stand seeing somebody happy, so they have to bring them down, and if you listen to all the negative stuff being said to you, then you will start doubting your judgments in your online marketing business and start finding reasons why you will fail.

Advice: When you feel down, like nothing is going your way and want to give up, read over your reason (why) you came online and and get your motivation back. Your reason why, will get your positive thinking and determination back...Remember you wrote this down yesterday so you could look at it everyday, so use it.

Motivation: Your Reason Why

If you are new to Online Marketing, or just can't seem to make any money online, then you need to ask yourself why do you want to work online? Go ahead and ask yourself now: Do you hate your job? Do you want more free time to spend with family and loved ones? or maybe you need to make more money. Once you know why you want to work online, write it down on paper, and post it up where you can see it everyday. The reason for this, is to keep yourself motivated. We all need a little motivation from time to time and your reason why should motivate you enough to keep you involved in Online Marketing, and not give up. For that reason you don't want to forget why you wanted to be an Internet Marketer in the first place. Posting your reason why where you can see it each day, look at it, keep it fresh in your head, and keep your motivation soaring!
