Pick a Marketable Niche

You should pick a marketable niche, not just any niche you like. You heard me? Say it again, a marketable niche. Not only they will buy the product, they also like to know more about the product.

If you sell Spongebob to kids, they won’t buy it since they can’t afford it. The best thing to do is to target their parents or those adults that never mind spending their money to have your product.

How To Choose Your Product

There are many websites that accept affiliate programs. You can earn money by commission basis. Few of affiliate program internet companies are:

Clickbank - The world’s largest marketplace for digital products

Paydotcom – Sort of a cross between Paypal and Clickbank but vendors can sell either digital or physical products

LinkShare – A huge affiliate directory for major businesses

CommissionJunction – Affiliate manager for major companies

Amazon – More than a bookseller, Amazon is a huge affiliate marketplace

This is just part of the big picture…you can find billions of products to your niche audience searching your favorite search engine.

Go with the flow of business success.

      Hi there! Just read this Hub, and I liked it! The information is clear and you make some good points. Voted up, useful and interesting. BUT: how about adding some eye candy? It somehow helps to make the whole thing more readable, maybe because the reader pauses for a rest, while looking at the photo? Anyway, thanks for the follow and have a good day!
