Killer Niche Markets
In order to lay down a strong foundation and begin to create your multiple income streams and cash funnels, you need to determine what niche markets you are going to focus on.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t venture into multiple markets and promote a wide range of products, but what it does mean is that initially you need to focus on a primary niche, so that you can begin to construct the building blocks to building a solid network.
Remember, you need severe focus as an affiliate in order to make the most money you possibly can, and if you attempt to dominate dozens of markets at once, you’ll find it exceptionally difficult to manage.
You also need to base your decision on profitability, rather than just personal interest, however if you can find niche markets that encompass both incredible profit potential that you are also personally attached to, even better!
This will help you maintain and improve your campaigns over the long haul, as well as being able to produce content specifically for your niche. In case you are unsure of what a niche market is, here is a brief overview:
A niche market is essentially a subset of a broad market. As an example of this, “dogs” is a general broad niche market, whereas “dog training, dog houses, dog grooming, dog breeds, etc” are smaller niche markets.
The difference between a mainstream market and a niche one is that with niche marketing, you are focusing on smaller groups of consumers, with a specialized focus.
By catering to a niche market rather than a mainstream one, you will deal with fewer competitors while placing more focus on specific products and services catering to those buyers.
There are also “micro niche” markets, which are even smaller, sub markets extracted from larger niche ones.
For example, rather than the niche “dog breeding”, you would focus on “Doberman breeding”, specific dog types.
Mainstream: Dog Niche: Dog Training Micro Niche: Doberman Dog Training As an affiliate marketer, you will need to follow a three step system that will help you build your online credibility and maximize your profit potential:
1) You need to build an active mailing list of responsive buyers. The more active your subscriber base is, the more money you will make.
2) You need to develop relevant content on a consistent basis so that you are able to provide your website visitors and subscribers with unique material that has a direct connection with your target market.
3) You need to generate highly targeted traffic to your websites and landing pages consisting of hungry buyers who are interested in specific products and services.
When it comes to niche selection, you want to focus on existing pools of buyers. It’s exceptionally difficult to generate a profit if you are focusing on a niche where there are a limited number of active buyers.
Unless you have the funds in place to outsource content creation, it’s very important that you choose a niche that you feel confident developing content for.
You’re probably thinking “why can’t I just use the pre-developed material provided by the product developer that I am promoting?”.
EVERYONE else is using that same content, and when it comes to affiliate marketing, you need to stand out from the crowd, to develop your own online business, brand and customer base.
In order to do that, you need to offer your subscribers, members and visitors with fresh, relevant content and material that they can’t find anywhere else.
This is truly a very important factor in becoming a successful affiliate marketer.
When it comes to utilizing an autoresponder to generate traffic and exposure to affiliate promotions, the last thing you’d want to do is use the same autoresponder sequence that every other affiliate is using.
Think about it.
If you happen to have the same group of subscribers as a competing affiliate, and you are both using the exact same copy or content, why should your affiliates purchase from you, and not your competitor?
You need to develop the mindset that focuses on building your very own business, and approach the markets and your promotions in the exact same way that you would if it were your own product that you were representing.
Offer people with something new, refreshing and innovative and you will find that you will be able to push out promotions that convert like crazy, faster and easier than affiliates who are using the same old copy and paste format.
When it comes to choosing a market, there are specific criteria to keep in mind, including:
a) Existing Demand You need to ensure that the market you intend on catering to has existing buyers and products.
That way, you can make the connection and generate commissions from every sale made.
b) Evergreen Markets While you’ll want to stay on top of trends so that you are able to keep a pulse on your market, as well as any changes in the types of goods and services that your market is interested in, you should always do your best to focus on Evergreen markets.
Evergreen simply means that the market is solid and unlikely to change. Weight loss, dating and dog training are three examples of evergreen markets that have been in existence for many years and is unlikely to change.
While you can make a lot of money by promoting short-term markets (Xbox 360 Fix, etc), your main campaigns should always be focused on longevity, so that you are able to create a passive income system that will continue to generate profit for many years to come.
