Girl-dreaming-passion

The first rule of niche marketing to learn is that it is advisable to research a market first and to try to establish a shortage in the market place, after which you will need to find a product to fill that shortage. Do not try to find a market for a product that you already have as it is almost certain you will fail.

So, before doing any research you will need to decide on the type of market that interests you. There are a lot of them on the Internet so it is important to choose the right one for you. To begin the research it is advisable to start on a broad theme and then dig down into the market. The following is a good starting point to find your potential list of markets to review.

1. A market following one of your passions.
2. A market within the Internet Marketing (IM) niche.
3. A market that follows the high spenders.

Number one blueThe first is obvious. You need to list any, and all the subjects that you feel passionate about, such as hobbies, sports, your work, or any subjects that you are knowledgeable about. If you are passionate about the subject then it would seem natural that you could make others passionate as well.

..

teo-blueThe second market – IM – is probably the largest market currently on the Internet, but it is a highly competitive one. There are many niches within the overall market, and maybe there would be something that could be of interest. Some of the high flyers in this market are:

  • Private Label Rights
  • Resell Rights
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Traffic Generation
  • Blogging
  • Membership Sites

number-three-blueThe third is one that tempts most newcomers, but they really don’t know where to start to look. The key here is to find information regarding which subjects have the most searches made, and there is a high spending value in that market. Some of the highest money spending markets include the following:

  • Dating
  • Travel
  • Stock Trading
  • Diets
  • Pets
  • Real Estate

Again there are many niche markets within each of the above topics with room to dig down to find the best possible returns.

Pr 072 - TRI - 16_11_10 - 012With your list of markets to explore, it is time to fully research each one thoroughly. Make extensive notes as you dig into each market. Ensure you can evaluate the number of searches in the niche; assess whether there is money being spent in the niche; and then that vital “something” that is missing, which hopefully you will be able to find and sell to the market.

When you have completed the research on your niche market list, you will need to make an evaluation of which one(s) presents the best business proposition, then start developing the niche. Remember that Rome was not built in a day, so be patient and don’t try to short-cut the research or you may miss some important information.

When the product is selling like hot cakes – start all over again.

Whether you are a full-time marketer trying to sell products or services online or someone wanting extra income, to help support your family or as extra retirement income, you will need to generate traffic to showcase your offer to potential customers.

However, the sad fact is that many training packages that tell you how to build a website for your business, where to get good graphics, good copywriting etc, very often having the last thing they tell you is…. and then drive traffic to your new site!!

That’s it, just drive traffic. But how? There are hundreds and thousands of websites out there that just sit on some web server somewhere and never get any visitors! That’s right, not a single person has ever found these sites so lovingly and painstakingly built (I know ‘cos I had a few of them!)

Presenting the answer to that problem, the missing link:

Simple Traffic Solutions is a traffic generation product from John Thornhill.

What makes this product stand out from the thousands of traffic generation products out is that none of his methods involve Google.

Simple Traffic Solutions

This is because a few years ago John logged into his Google AdWords account to find out he had been banned from running ads. This is a common issue with anyone in the IM niche and devastating to any marketer that it happens too. Businesses have had their sole source of income dry up in a matter of days!

It’s OK for Google because they can afford to be selective with their ad program as they have huge corporations pumping billions of dollars into their bank accounts. So, no more relying on Google for John Thornhill or his students.

Another popular traffic teaching tactic is SEO. This involves trying to learn complex methods such as title tags, meta tags, heading tags, alt attributes, sitemaps, link building, algorithms, keyword research, page optimization and content creation. You could spend months getting your site to to top of Google’s search results only to see them change their algorithm and your site disappears overnight. The recent Panda and Penguin updates that literally destroyed  businesses overnight are one example.

This is why John said “screw you Google” and decided to come up with traffic methods that didn’t involve them at all. He studied other traditional traffic generation techniques and improved them, tweaked them and perfected them. The result is that in the last year his websites have received over 2 billion hits from 20 different traffic generation methods. Yes, you read that correctly, OVER 2 BILLION HITS, and it didn’t cost him one cent.

And the good news is John shares how he generated every single click in his latest product, Simple Traffic Solutions. A step by step traffic generation program that can help you get all the traffic you need to your websites.

So what does Simple Traffic Solutions consist of?

Well, where do I start, John has covered all he knows about traffic generation in over 50 modules. Each traffic module consists of theory training, practical training and has a checklist so you can work your way through each method step by step He has also created each module in multiple formats so you can watch the videos on your iPad, iPhone or other digital device, as well as watch online.

John gives each traffic method a rating of one to five stars,  showing you what methods work best for him and what methods don’t work so well. This is something not seen often.

While some of the traffic methods appear a little basic they are covered in great detail and John’s enthusiasm convinces you that traffic generation needn’t be a complex matter. In fact he openly shows you how he uses each traffic generation method, shows you how his methods work, and he really has you thinking ‘why bother with Google’.

There is also a ton of PDF material including a very well written eBook, a traffic generation mindmap and a collection of checklists that compliment the modules perfectly, this is worth the cost of the product alone.

All in all, and for the price, this is one of the most comprehensive traffic guides I have ever seen, and the fact John shows you how he implements each method shows you he is genuine. He has put a lot of work into this and it shows.

In fact the only downside I can think of is the price is so low you think what’s the catch? Well John does hit you with an offer of coaching but this is not required to make his traffic methods work.

So for only $4.95 you can get one of the most comprehensive traffic guides I have ever seen and I can highly recommend it, no matter what level of experience you have you will learn from this product.

To top it off he also gives you a 60 day money back guarantee, so this really is one of the best deals I have seen and I encourage you to check it out here.

P.S. – did you get the free traffic package from John to get a taste of this great traffic system, if not click here now!
