How Do I Pick?

Postby Lisa » Wed Dec 26, 2007 7:40 pm

Wow, I've been researching keywords all day. I see sooooo many potential niches. My question is how do you stop and just pick one?? I'm telling myself just stop, pick one, build your site, get it going, and then you can do others. But yet I just keep researching not knowing which one to pick - or not sure if this is the best one. Then I think okay I'm going to do this and then I say wait maybe this isn't the right one. GEEZ - I just need to start!! I'm starting to over analyze - HELP! :lol:

I would move your analysis to a new area. You may want to pick 2 or 3 of the top niche keywords to start with, then ask your self some of these questions...

1. How are you going to make money in this niche? That is why you are here right? :)
- Selling products, being an affiliate, write ebooks, articles, other?

2. How are you going to get traffic to my website or sales page?
- run ads? blogging? write articles? forums? mailing lists? viral marketing? other?

3. Do you have any interest or experience in any of these niche areas?
- this could help depending on what you plan to do in #1 & #2 above.

4. What are the top sites in that Niche now? What are they doing?
Can you do it better? or can you do something different to stand out?

I would assume that some niches are better for certain products, or approaches. Some may have products you can resell or be an affiliate. Some you may have to create products or services.

There are probably more, but if you start with this, plus your keyword research, you should be able to come up with some pluses and minuses for each niche.

But at some point, you do have to pick. Give your site a fair shot. Whether it makes you tons of money or not, you will have gained valuable experience. That you can now use to evaluate your list for your second and third niches. :D

Good Luck.

What area do you have the most credibility in?

What area are you the most passionate about?

What area do you know the best?

When I research a niche I'm researching all of what you are talking about bs28723. Not having experience in niche sites it seems hard to pick your first one because I want to make money. When you got some experience it's easier to gage what will be profitable and what won't.

I just have to pick one and experiment. I know that you have to experiment in order to know what works and what doesn't. I think it's my mindset.

Well, I will just pick and DO - tweak, test, tweak, test, continue on....

I don't necessarily look to what I'm passionate about. I look to what people are buying, wanting, searching for online. My passion is to make money online and quit my day job. :)

Just wondering what others do to pick a profitable niche. When to call it quits on research and move on.
