Your Very Own Wellspring of Profitable Ideas for Internet Marketing
Create Your Very Own Wellspring of Profitable Ideas for
Are you like me and you're beginning to see that creating income
online through internet marketing is a golden opportunity? Something
that we're at the forefront of, as it will just continue to grow
as more and more people come online. And are you seeing that information
is endless, and that people already consume huge amounts of information
in the form of newspapers, magazines, books, professional journals,
business journals, and on.
People will never stop wanting information and if you can create
information products (which is actually fairly easy to do once you
learn how) to satisfy their information hunger in new ways they
will gladly pay you for it.
One of the most fruitful areas of internet marketing is found in
niche marketing. This is where it really gets fun! There are endless
niches and as you beging doing some research you'll see what I mean.
There are many aspects to creating a successful online business,
of which good ideas are just one; but please don't underestimate
the power of having lots of good ideas that you can get excited
There are several great ways to generate a rich flow of ideas for
niche marketing. One of the most important things to do is to keep
a journal (it can be as simple as a notebook) handy to jot down
your ideas as they occur to you. You can also use your computer.
Just be sure to have one or the other handy so you don't miss any
of your ideas. Your ideas may seem at first to just trickle in,
but as you make some of the following idea generators habit, you'll
be opening the flow.
You can generate ideas from time spent both online and
off, and you'll want to do both to be most effective.
To stimulate ideas away from your computer, heighten your everyday
awareness as you go about your life. Pay attention to advertisements
you encounter. Who are they selling to? What are they selling? What
angles are they using to sell it?
Another excellent thing to do is spend some time studying the magazine
racks at a big bookstore like Borders or Barnes & Noble. Or
at the grocery store or library. Generally, the larger the selection
the more ideas you can come away with. Look for 3 or 4 magazines
on the same subject. If you've found 3 or 4 on the same subject
you're now aware of a trend. Read the magazines, look at the ads.
You can see who the audience is and what they're interested in.
You can see what is being advertised to them. Keep looking for trends
of information wherever you are looking.
As for online research, there are many resources available. There
are information product banks where they have articles, reports,
and e-books available for resale. Browsing for an hour or so will
give you lots of great ideas about what is selling well. Once again,
look for trends. Clickbank.com is a great place to start. You can
also check out cbmall.com which in effect makes Clickbank searchable.
Look at categories you have an interest in. Look at best-selling
categories. Look for ways you could combine information into a new
product of your own. Look for missing information that you could
Also spend some time on Amazon.com, browsing their best-seller
lists, seeing what's selling most in subjects of interest to you.
Another excellent resource available to you are online discussion
groups. Many such groups exist and you can usually join them for
free. Lots of times in these groups there are people with problems
they're trying to solve. Listen in and see if you can come up with
something to help them solve their problem.
You can also find some great ideas by going to web directories.
These are like phone books or catalogs of the web. My favorite so
far is dmoz.com which is catalogued by humans and kept up to date.
No dead links or stale web pages! Browse here and spend some time
Once you get some ideas from the outside in, you'll begin to get
more ideas from the inside out. Keep that notebook handy!
These are some of the ideas I've been utilizing lately. I hope
you find them as helpful as I have. Let's tap the abundance of the
unique internet marketplace!
Wishing you abundance in all matters,
