THE ULTIMATE GUIDE OF NICHE PROFITS







THE ULTIMATE GUIDE

OF
NICHE PROFITS



By Murat AVCI








INTRODUCTION


When I first started on this book, it was only supposed to be a couple of pages long. The main reason was to give a little bit more detail into a method that I use to generate a nice income every month.


Since then however, I have been contacted more times than I can count asking to expand the scope of the methods used and get more in detail about the things I do.


What I quickly realized is that many people simply do not know where to start and that many of the products out there today assume that we all know everything already.


So, I have taken this a bit further and am going to go in detail and in depth about everything. When you finish this, you should have no doubt that you will be able to generate an income online.


It is going to take work and effort on your part however, anything in life that is worth having does.










Disclaimer:


This method works great for me, but I make no claims or promises as to how much money you will or could make.


You are hereby informed to read and put these methods into action at your own risk.

GETTING YOUR HEAD RIGHT!


A majority of the success that you will have in Internet Marketing will be derived from your mental toughness. This is important because many of the things that you read and many of the products that you buy online set you up for failure.


What do I mean?


If you go and find just about any sales letter that is selling a product that has to do with making money online a couple things should jump out at you.


The first thing is, the claims of instant income that pours into your bank account the minute you buy the product. Many of these claims are crap and the sooner that you realize that the better off you will be.


What happens is, you buy a product, read it, and start to implement what it teaches and if you are not rich overnight you somehow feel that you have failed, but hold on a minute....


In reality, the person that sold you the product has failed, for the simple fact that they have set your expectations in a way that they are impossible to meet.


Understand right off the bat that the people that make money online are the ones that stick it out, the ones that put in the extra hour, and the ones that fight through the days of no sales.

You have to decide right now, are you going to be one of the successes or are you going to be one of the people that gets stuck in a rut and throws in the hat only to try something else and fail too?


If you are looking for a quick fix or push button system to solve all of your financial problems, this guide is not for you. If however, you are willing to put the work in and follow a system that has proven to be successful, read on and let’s get to work.

PICKING A NICHE


One of the things that it seems like people struggle with the most is picking a niche to jump into. One of the main reasons is, many systems and guides tell you to pick something that you are passionate about or something you love....


There is a problem though!


If you are anything like me, you can't go to a website like Clickbank and find something that you love or even anything that you are passionate about.


So, what I want you to do is to pick a product that is going to make you money. The question is, how do you know what product that is?



Well, there is no silver bullet, no real way to look at a product and know whether or not it is going to make you money. There are however, ways of telling whether or not it is more likely or not that the product could be a winner.


When deciding which product is right for you, there are a couple things that you can look at.


Gravity – This can be found in the product description at ClickBank. This number basically tells you how many affiliates have sold at least one unit. The higher the number, you can assume that the product is selling well and that the sales page is proving to convert.



Sales Page – Take a look at the sales page for the product. Does it interest you? Does it look professional? If you were in the market, would it compel you to rip your credit card out of your wallet and make a purchase?


Information – How much information is readily available online? For instance, if you are in the dog training niche and type “dog training tips” into Google and the first thing you see is an extensive step by step system to train a dog, that is free. There is a good chance that people will not buy what they can get for nothing. This might be a sign that you should look at another niche. If however, there isn't a whole lot of free information, but enough for you to research and get information for articles and other advertising, you probably found a good product to market.


Affiliate Resources – Most of the time, for every product there are 3 or 4 vendors on ClickBank trying to sell the same thing.

Some of them give you things like articles, graphics, free reports, and other information that will help you in marketing their product. The bigger head start you can get, the better. This is a resource that I think many people overlook. Some of the affiliate resources even go as far as to give you a list of profitable keywords that you can start your campaign with.


All of the things above combined can guide you to making the right decision when you're trying to come up with the right product for you to promote.


The most important things out of what was covered above are the

sales pages and the information sections.


You want to pay close attention to the sales page. If it makes you think that it was just quickly thrown together or if you look at the sales copy and think to yourself “ who in the world came up with this”? You might want to look at other similar products and skip over that particular vendor. Make sure that the process from beginning to end of the site is smooth. You want the headline to grab your attention and for there to be plenty of opportunities for the visitor to buy. Another thing to look for is to see if there are bonuses being given. Many times, the bonus that a product comes with make it a no brainer in and of itself.



Another very important thing to look for is “leaks”. This refers to the ability of the buyer to purchase the product through another payment processor. What you want to do is follow all of the links and make sure that your affiliate ID is still showing up at the bottom of the page. From what I understand, this is not as big of an issue anymore, but definitely something to watch out for.


One other important thing to keep an eye on is whether or not the vendor is collecting email addresses on a squeeze page. If they are, do yourself a favor and sign up. As you start to get emails from them, follow the links inside the emails and make sure that your affiliate ID is still intact and that they are not replacing yours with theirs. There has been some talk recently about vendors possibly stealing commission from affiliates in this manner.


Keep in mind that there is more than likely more than one person selling the same kind of product, so you do have options. Once you find a niche that you would like to get into take a look at all of the different vendors and see which one you think gives you the best opportunity to make a sale by sending visitors to the sales page.


The information portion is also going to play a huge part in your decision. As I said earlier, if someone is giving away for free what you are trying to sell, how many do you think you will sell?


Chances are, you might still get a couple sales, but not enough to make any type of long term passive income.


Our main goal is to find a niche that we can settle into, do the initial work, and then collect money from it for years to come. This is exactly the reason that it is so important to do thorough research. By doing so, we are making sure that we have set ourselves up for success.



DOING KEYWORD RESEARCH


Keyword research is one of the most important things that we do online. It can be very time consuming depending on how deep you need to go in order to get keywords that you are happy with, but it is well worth the effort and will pay a great return if done correctly.


The most important thing that we need in order to do effective keyword research is a keyword tool. For the purpose of this guide I am going to be using WordTracker's free tool, due to the fact that everyone has access to it.


Before we start though, it is important to understand that for the most part these tools make guesses at the results that they give. For example, in one niche that I am in, all of the keyword tools that I have used said that a particular keyword was only getting 1 search a day. This is funny to me, because I currently get 30 visitors a day to one of my sites based on that keyword. The point I am trying to make is there is a little bit of wiggle room in the results that you get.


WordTracker reports results based on a daily search volume. This means that if it shows the number 5 after a keyword that it is searched for approximately 150 times a month.


Normally, a guide like this would go into a long drawn out ramble about how you should do keyword research and it would be really boring and you would lose interest.


I'm not going to do that. I'm going to show you how to cheat your way through keyword research.


This is by far the easiest way that I have found to research keywords and has helped me to expand out into different niches and even given me some great product ideas.


I'm going to give some examples here and try to make it as easy as possible for you to follow along. I want you to understand exactly what I am doing and how I come up with the numbers that I come up with. Make sure that you have a web browser open and ready to go.


For example purposes we are going to be researching keywords that relate to the relationship niche. It will work for just about any niche though. As a matter of a fact, I have not found a single niche that I have not been able to do my keyword research in this manner with.


Open up www.ezinearticles.com in your browser. Now because we are using the relationship niche as an example I am just going to type in a random keyword in the search box. I am going to use “relationship problem advice”.


When I do that, the first article that shows up for me is this one:


http://ezinearticles.com/index.php?Some-Relationship-Problem-Advice-That-Can-Save-Your-Relationship&id=1252566



When that article opens, I really don't care what it says. Basically, I just want to take advantage of the fact that this person has probably spent hours researching the niche and keywords. So, what I am interested in is the keywords that they are going after.


To get that information you want to look at the source code. To do that, simply right click somewhere in the article and choose the option to “view source code”. When you do that, this is the part that we are concerned with:


<meta
name="keywords" content="ways to end relationships,
questions to ask before ending a relationship, get your ex back"

NOTE: YOU
CAN ALSO GET THIS INFORMATION BY SIMPLY CLICKING THE EZINE PUBLISHER
BUTTON ONCE INSIDE THE ARTICLE. HOWEVER, BY DOING THIS YOU ARE GIVING
YOUR COMPETITION ANOTHER VOTE TO BE LISTED IN THE “MOST PUBLISHED”
SECTION OF THAT category.


This tells us that the keywords that he is going after are “ways to end relationships, questions to ask before ending a relationship, and get your ex back”.


Lets take the first one of his keywords which is “ways to end relationships” and put it in keyword tracker. When we do that, we see that it is searched for 520 times a day.


Next, go to Google and enter the keyword with quotation marks. Surprise, only about 8,000 competing sites!


Now save that keyword and move onto the next one. When we put “questions to ask before ending a relationship” into WordTracker we are told that this term is searched for 324 times a day. When I check Google there are only 416 competing sites!


At this point we have 2 keywords with high daily searches and low competition. Now, you may have to go through a couple articles in

order to find good keywords, but it still only takes a couple of minutes and it is much easier than the way that the “gurus” tell you to do your keyword research.


You will want to continue looking at articles and checking the source code until you have somewhere between 10 -15 keywords that you are comfortable with. It should not take you long.


One thing that I will say is, I'm not sure if this niche is profitable or not. I have never marketed to it so I have no idea how the niche converts or how much money you could make which these types of products. One thing that you can do to see what people are marketing when using these keywords is to simply follow the links in their...
