The big buzz-phrase at the beginning of 2006 is Niche Marketing. If you find your niche and market it like crazy, the gurus cry, you can be a zillionaire by March. Great.
So where is this niche, and how will you recognize it when you stumble into it?
Many expensive courses are offered teaching Internet Marketing, and most have some important links missing. How does the average person find their niche, without a background in marketing? As a beginner, you may just want to supplement your current income, and hopefully, eventually, quit your day job. The very average advice offered for hundreds of dollars is find your passion, research on the internet and Clickbank, develop your own product, and there you go. So lets help you expand this into a sensible plan.
Grab a pen and paper, and try some new ideas. What did you want to be when you grew up? If you really are a fireman or train engineer, you have an excellent niche, with a lot of information and stories to tell. If you arent what you planned to be when you were twelve, take it up again now, study your dream occupation, and become an armchair expert.
