Which Niche Idea Do you Like the Best?
1) Brainstorming your Niche or Niches
Grab a piece of paper and a pen.
Think about something you are passionate about.Spend about 10 minutes or however long you need to brainstrom.
Do you enjoy music,travel, art, cars, making clothes, trendy gym shoes, organic gardening, yoga, sports memorabilia, vintage fashion or pets?
All of these great ideas can be transformed into a profitable eCommerce website or blog. You can make money online, make money easily and make money online by blogging.Where you can start to generate passive income within a couple of months or even weeks. In the following example, I will show you how to take your initial general idea and zero in on a specific sub-category.
Let's take the topics of pets and sports, both are broad topics. Let's narrow it down to dogs and football. Okay so what next? So far there are still a lot of niche options.We can break the sub-categories into a more niche specific sub-category. So instead of having a blog talking about just dogs and football season. You could concentrate and setup a eCommerce website blogging about, selling or reviewing NFL dog bowls or NFL jerseys for dogs!
Dog Jersey's range from xs-XL to accommodate different canine breeds.
