Following my recent stint at Business 2012, one of the most frequently asked questions was “How did you get started” or “What exactly were your first steps?”
The first step to making money online and starting an online business (because it is a business, even if you work on this part-time after the kids are in bed) is to find a niche. Not any old niche which might be full of freebie seekers, a “hot” niche with proven, hungry buyers willing to pay for products or information. That’s how you make money!
Find A Hot Money Making Niche
There are two ways to approach this:
Firstly, start with what you know and love. Write a list of your hobbies, passions and skills………….what do you love, how do you spend your free time?
It might be gardening, skiing, long bow archery, labrador puppy training, hill walking or growing herbs on your window-sill. Pick ONE and I’ll show you how to determine if this is a “hot” niche and how you can make money from it.
The second approach is more scientific. Find a money making niche with lots of proven hungry buyers and then find or create products to sell to them.
The Key Is To Find A Hungry Market Of Buying Customers
Picking the right niche before you do anything else is essential if you want to make money online. This is where so many people go wrong. They spend ages creating products and building websites in niches that will never make money.
