Internet Marketing Niche Ideas
Knowing which niches are generally profitable is one of the first steps to successful Internet marketing, personally I do believe that any good idea implemented correctly can be profitable but starting with the soft targets is never a bad thing. Keep in mind that many of these niches are well known and highly competitive.
Firstly there are thousands of ideas and I just want to look at a few of them to give you some ideas and to help explain the logic behind these ideas and why they are successful. I am a big fan of common problem niches or phrased differently problems that many people may face in their lives and the more difficult the problem is to solve the better for conversions. I realize this is the part where some readers will give me that glare of ethical death but lets be honest it is far easier to sell a product that helps with desperation or addiction or extreme emotions than it is to sell most other products and to defend myself and all Internet marketers these niches are virtually identical to cash cows
The world revolves around money, in fact you are most likely reading this very sentence because of money and your aspirations to get more of it in your life. There are hundreds of niches focused around money but some of the most profitable revolve around credit and debt. Amazingly people will spend money to get out of trouble because they spent money, desperation seems to be a strong selling factor here and understandably given the massive levels of debt around the world there is no shortage of potential customers. Selling or marketing good strong products around credit, credit card, loans, bad debt, debt consolidation and general banking systems is incredibly lucrative. On the other side of this coin you can also make a fair amount of money by marketing ways to make money particularly ways to make money online and once again the fact that you are reading this post is evidence of that.
You just have to look at the GDP of any developed nation to realize that healthcare is HUGE and the modern world is completely dependent on the system, if you decide to tackle some medical niche topics you will be playing in one of the most profitable markets imaginable. The variety of niches here is enormous from day to day topics like acne and teeth whitening to far more serious topics like cancer, targeting addictions is one of the oldest and most profitable methods so do not for a minute think that all the quit smoking and weight loss sites on the Internet are there for love and charity.
Vices & Addictions
Well since selling products that help people quit smoking or gambling are profitable it goes without saying that selling those very same products is also very lucrative. Obviously you need to be very careful in these niches since there are laws and regulations in each country and you do not want to overstep any boundaries. Although slightly different from normal Internet Marketing these niches are cash cows worth the effort if you do not have any moral obligations.
Matters of the Heart
People are emotional and coping with these emotions can be difficult. Online dating, relationship advice and similar topics generate insane volumes of traffic and of course income. To be fair this is a difficult area to tackle since it often requires an active community but finding niches with low competition could be a ticket to riches. One of the most popular niches focuses around getting back a partner after breaking up.
The Internet Marketing niche ideas listed here should not be viewed as opportunistic but rather accepted for the lesson they contain which is that all profitable niches rely on needs which buyers feel they cannot escape and in some cases it is the truth while in other cases it is entirely about perception.

Having read hundreds of debates around PLR articles and the duplicate content google hammer I decided to test the issue for myself and proceeded to set up a website to test the theory, the results will probably surprise you.

Firstly I do not view article marketing as SEO only or a just another traffic channel, I place it in a bigger box encompassing SEO, Traffic Generation, Lead Generation, Brand or Product awareness and Hype or Buzz Creation. A well planned and executed article campaign should target all of these areas.

Although this is a business that does not require a web site or physical presence you can increase your income quite a lot if you do build a website or brick and mortar business around it but lets focus on a completely freelance approach since your start up costs will be virtually zero. There is one thing you will definitely need if you are planning to operate a business of this nature and that is a Paypal account to receive your payments.

A key factor in choosing a good niche is the ability to sell on both sides, you want to offer your visitors value while being able to generate income from the listings directly, always consider the amount of money available in niches before jumping in. Certain industries simply do not spend money on advertising and you could rather spend your time building a more profitable web directory which offers multiple income opportunities.

Every day I read hundreds of comments and posts about poor AdSense earnings, most of the time the reasons for low CPC are the same so I want to share the most common reasons with you so that you can better understand your AdSense Earnings. The common reasons for low AdSense earnings are well known to more experienced publishers but new publishers often walk away disappointed.

There was a time where web directories were all the rage and even after search engines paved the road to a better Internet web directories still had a part to play but nowadays the thought of running a web directory sends chills down the spines of anybody who has ever seen the amount of spam they deal with.

Personally I believe that even when monetizing a website through advertising the area above the fold can be used to entice readers rather than aggressively pushing adverts but it really does depend on the site and the type of content. Understanding the fold is not always as simple as the points made here though and you will need to experiment a bit to understand what works best for you and your visitors or customers.

This gets a lot more interesting when you start combining the two though and now we are starting to focus the targeting to a point where our conversion rate will be worth the effort. Combining our examples you would have; vehicle insurance for young men, fashion for female executives and software tools for web designers. As you can see we now have a target audience that makes sense and is very neatly focused.

Of course like with any keyword tool you need to stop and think when you are looking at the results, consider the phrases that could have been removed or the effect of tense and plurals before you decide that you have just found a super keyword. One of the nice things about the Wonderwheel is the search results display alongside the wheel which gives you quick glance at the competition.
