If you are an internet marketer interested in niche marketing or writing niche eBooks, one of the hardest things can be finding niches to market to (or write about). To help with that, here are a couple of fresh ideas for finding niche markets to help you make money online.
Get niche market ideas from other people.
Whether you get family members, a group of friends, or other writers together, brainstorming is a wonderful way to beat Niche Marketer's Block. When you are stuck, make brainstorming fun. You can sit and just start throwing ideas out or make a game by putting ideas in a hat and then passing it around to read or act out.
Fancy Internet Marketing gurus call this a “mastermind” session.
And you'd be absolutely amazed at how productive it can be. People throw out ideas that you never even thought of. They offer opinions that you weren't even close to considering. Why? Because they think differently than you do. And that can be a good thing.
Are you having trouble with generating ideas for your eBook , or expanding upon what you are already writing about? Simply get a group of folks together (or even just one person is a start) and ask questions. Explain what you are writing about and ask for suggestions, ideas and opinions.
Bingo! Just like that, with the wave of a magic wand, you've got more ideas and a fresh perspective to write from or product ideas to market against.
Store up ideas as they occur to you
You need to be an “Idea collector.” Collect ideas to use later in your writing or niche marketing. When something grabs your attention, no matter where you are, write it down and capture as much information as you can.
Thoughts could come to you at any time. You might be grocery shopping or at your son's soccer game. The best thing is to be prepared and always keep a pad of paper and pen with you. Or, even better than that is to have a small hand-held voice recorder.
You'll be amazed at where inspiration hits you. For example, when sitting at your child's outdoor sporting event, focus on things going on around you. Perhaps you see a child playing off by himself in the dirt and you watch as another child around the same age slowly and shyly approaches wanting to make a friend. Before long, they have bonded and are now sharing their toys together.
Write the scenario down and later think about ways you could use that story to illustrate a point when you are writing your eBook. A pad of paper and pen (or the voice recorder) will soon become your greatest companion.
NOTE: And the “ideas” you collect don't necessarily have to apply to your CURRENT writing project. I collect ideas that sit in my “idea file” for months — even years — before I ever use them. But, they are there when I need them, always giving me something new to draw from, and something new and fresh to spawn ideas.
