In Internet marketing one of the most important keys to success is that of entering into the correct type of market for whatever promotion it is that you wish to carry out. There are several reasons why picking a market is so crucial in determining whether or not the campaign will be successful and also of what magnitude that success will be and in the following paragraphs we shall look at a couple of the main ones.
Do They Have Money To Spend?
One of the biggest mistakes that many marketers make is they go into a market because they like the look of it or think that it is going to be successful without any real prior thought given to how they are going to monetize the site. It is vital to have a plan of action going in rather than just making it up as you go along and hoping that it will all turn out fine in the end. A little bit of planning done before hand can be the difference between creating a great little extra stream of income or wasting a lot of time and effort for very little return.
A good way to see if the niche has money to spend is to see what competitors are currently in your market and in what ways they have gone about monetizing their sites. Let’s face it – you are an Internet marketer and this is not just a fun “hobby” or something you do to pass the time of day but in fact is the way that you put food on the table for your family and pay your mortgage so you want to make sure that there are viable ways to monetize the traffic.
It is possible that some of your competitors are selling eBooks or mp3 programmes and if this is the case then that should represent a good indication that there is money being spent in this market and that it might be worth your time and effort to get involved. Also if some sites are displaying Adsense then it also a good sign, however, it may also be a good idea to use some software like Keyword Elite to see if the clicks are worthwhile going after or if they are just too low a value to be worth the effort.
Are You Interested In The Market?
It is often a very good idea to be interested in the market that you go into if you are going to be creating content and products for it. Time invested in something you enjoy and that makes you money is time well spent. However, it is not essential because you can outsource the content creation or just get on with it even if you don’t find the market that enthralling.

This whole business owner thing is not for the faint of heart, there is a reason why most businesses fail!
While the road to burnout doesn’t look the same for everyone on it there are some similarities you typically experience on this path!
- You’re always in the weeds of your business
- You don’t have efficient systems and processes (or maybe none at all)
- You aren’t delegating effectively
- You can’t take time off
- You’re trying to do too many things at once + wearing all the hats
It’s exhausting just thinking about it! But there’s a way off the hamster wheel!
If you’re overwhelmed, overworked, stressed out, and worried that if you take time off the bottom will fall out from beneath you and your business will fall apart.
