Internet Marketers are mostly successful when they are passionate about topics, which they promote or sell. I think, what it is in human nature to talk about and do things which are close to you, to your heart. It does not matter if you are without the college education. Most important thing is that you have a knowledge what you are talking about.
Passion for Your Niche
It is best when topic excites you. I was willing to create websites and to write about my hobbies and experiences. After one year learning how to code, I got knowledge how to do it, but it was kind of boring thing. I know, it is best to create the website by yourself because you are in full control of it. Anyway, I wanted to have more time for writing because it always makes me energized and happy. Now I am content with what I am doing now. No boringness or constant reminders what I need to do next.
Find What Do You Like
It is the most rewarding thing when you can find the object which suits you. All words will lay down easily. Researching how to expand your chosen niche is a pleasure.
It is best to think about what you like, what excites you most. It does not matter if it is gardening, dogs, cars or tutoring, you always will find who needs your knowledge.
Varieties of Niches
There are some aspects when you choose your nice. If you want to spread your message about the product and write blogs, it is one thing. To create products is the other thing. It is more complicated because you will be dealing with factories, registration of patent, distribution and customers. Working alone, requires courage, persistence and constant rechecking what was and supposed to be done. Working with the team, if it consists of people who have the same drive as you, is excellent.
Besides spreading information or creating a product, you can resell the product. There so many manufacturers, who would be happy to sell you products at wholesale price. Timothy Ferris, the author of The 4-Hour Workweek, recommend to contact the manufacturer and ask for wholesale price list and terms. Next step is to print out forms for registering your business in a State of Secretary office. Timothy Ferris prefers LLC (limited liability company).
Another alternative can be when you are licensing the product. A profit by Timothy Ferris is in licensing- granting others the right to produce hundred of products with their name an image in exchange for a percentage of sales. It is a long process, requiring diligent research, the agreement between to sides. You need to negotiate for your own profit.
Create Real Products
Creation of product is the third alternative, as mentioned above. It depends on nature of the product. For example, creating decorative magnets, such as these are on refrigerators or everywhere with the magnet-friendly surface, you need at first find a manufacturer. Usually, if items are small, they want you to order big quantity. In this case with magnets, an amount was 10.000. You create a sample of art using Adobe Illustrator or hire somebody to do it. After this, you connect the custom, if the item will be produced overseas. It is better to know now if your products will be able to enter the country. There some restrictions such as copyrights. You can not produce magnets with Micky Mouse because Disney Company owns these rights over Micky. Do not worry, there so many ideas what to create, just you need to make your mind, what you want.
Later on, when you got a sample from the manufacturer and you like it how it is done, you will get a Proforma Invoice with all seals and bank numbers. You paid in advance, especially if the amount is low. Finding a broker, I recommend a Scarborough International LTD, is the next step. They will take care of customs, paperwork and they will deliver items to your the wanted point. My mentioned case is an example what is going on when you want to create a product and participate in the journey till the end.
Create Informative Products
Here was a description of a real product. To create an informative product, you need to be an expert in your niche. There are so many books, references, scientific journals where you can arm yourself with knowledge about your hobbies or topic, which is in demand now. What you are writing for your visitors in your created website, is the unique content. Why? Because it is told in your own words. Google recognizes it and gives credit to you, not for the person who would make simple copy and paste. You share knowledge which is was acquired by you and you are fascinated by it. Who can better explain things if not a person who is the expert in this field?
Follow Your Passion
What are you thoughts about choosing a niche? I know, sometimes people have many hobbies or can not choose what it can be profitable. Think what most excites you. Of course, you can write about few topics at the same website. It is most important, that these themes would have connections. If you writing about tomatoes, cars would the different theme. How to prepare the soil, gardening tools go with tomatoes perfectly well. Best of luck to choosing your niche, exploring it and spreading the message to your visitors. It would be nice to hear from you. A comment left below would be appreciated and answered.
