How Do You Find Your Niche In 2008

Postby rafeeqibrahim » Tue Jun 24, 2008 6:52 am

Hi i am wondering what are the most effective and easiest to implement methods of finding a niche today.

As we are in the year of 2008 i am just interested in finding out which methods would work.

I am more interested in any free methods available.

How do you know if you have found a niche or not?

Are there any good free ebooks anyone would recommend that are quite accurate and would take a newbie through the whole process?

Best bet is to always go with your passion. Following the money is putting the cart before the horse. Discover what you love to write about and the money will follow.

One way to find what everyone is looking for is to sign up for Google Hot Trends at http://www.google.com/trends/hottrends. Give it a try. I use it and it's been very useful. :wink:

The business ideas I usually have are based out of need: There's nothing out there to help me, so I'll help myself and others who might be in a similar situation. Also, I make sure there is very little to no competition. Even still, I study my target market to make sure the size is viable enough to turn a profit. Then, I study my competitors for months and do whatever it is that they are lacking and I do it better than them.

I will start two more businesses within the next five years; one is a niche and the other is slightly mainstream, but I will do it differently.

I also like the tip of doing something you enjoy. It's going to be tough if it's something you care nothing about.....would feel like pulling teeth to keep working on it, to me.
