Finding Your Niche and Building Your Online Business!

Jan 14th 2011 at 4:58 AM

So, you want to find just the right niche? Ok, let’s jump straight into this now and get started on finding this. Firstly, here are some questions you need to ask yourself to get those creative juices flowing:

• What are your interests?
• What do you do in your spare time?
• What subjects are you the go-to person to for your friends, family even co-workers?
• What are your hobbies?
• What subject do you have a lot of knowledge about?
• What are your friends and family coming to you for advice about?
• Do you play any sports? If so which ones?
• Do you have pets?
• Do you collect anything?
• What gets your juices flowing?
• What is your passion?

Once you’ve answered these important questions , you need to take a look at your answers and pay special attention to the top five. These are the areas which you should be exploring further as they are the areas which will most likely lead to your ideal niche. Each one of these particular areas could be a great money-making business.

Ok, so you’ve found your niche – what next?

1) You’ll need a web site to sell your product or service – this will be your sales tool

2) Create some awesome sales copy – this will be your content

3) Make sure you’ve set up the means to accept payments – most people use Paypal

4) Ensure you’re able to capture visitors email addresses – this will be your auto responder

5) Optimize your web site for the search engines – SEO (search engine optimisation)

6) Create a back end sales process – this will be your up sell

These steps are the foundation of a rock solid online business, but these are also the same things that many people don’t want to do or feel they can’t do it to achieve online success. All I can say here is that if you’re not willing to do what it takes to become success online, then you’ll never succeed at anything, it’s as simple as that. Building an online business takes time, hard work and commitment.

It’s because it takes these three basic steps that people will spend millions of dollars trying to find a fast and easy way to make money online without having to put in the effort themselves. These people are convinced they can’t do the above work or that there’s a faster, slicker way out there.

I’m here to let you know that there’s no single application or technology which will funnel money into your bank account. If there was, you can be sure I’d have it and so would all of my online colleagues! You just need to remember that building a business online takes time, energy and work, and if you’re doing something you love it’s NOT work at all.

So you need to forget about the latest and greatest money making schemes you get bombarded with and focus on your own business. You’ll be far more successful and have a lot more fun, believe me. Another plus is that you’ll have a lot more money in your own pocket with which to build your business, rather than throwing it all away on some overnight get-rich scheme!
