Are you a ‘niche collector’, like us? Seriously, we love niches. We first got interested in AdSense niches five years ago, when we accidentally found out that you can make either $0.02 or $2.42 per click. The difference? Topic of your article. So right away, we started wondering – what’s the most profitable Adsene keyword(s) out there? Then we stumbled upon unusual business niches. Then we found out that a lot of people are looking for a good website niche (aka profitable website niches) to start their business. So we decided to start a niche website that covers nothing but profitable (crazy, unusual) niches. If you are a nicheholic, you’ll love NicheGeek.com

The End Of News As We Know It

When my father was drafted during World War II and dumped in Belgium just in time for the Battle of the Bulge, my mother and his first two kids (I wasn’t a glimmer in his eye yet) waited days for even a trickle of news about the war… and waited months for letters from Pop himself.

The news came in painfully slow trickles. First rumors, then snatches of broadcast bulletins on the radio, then a newspaper story that may or not have been accurate… and in none of this was even a prayer for specific news from or about Pop.

That kind of no-news existence is just hard to imagine now. Online, I can watch stories develop just by refreshing my Google homepage — really hot news is updated constantly, within minutes of dramatic fresh input.

Why Trying To Use The Same One Road To Get Everywhere Is Plain Stupid

Top 10 reasons to date a … anyone !

The problem with only using one single road to get anywhere is that in the end, even though that road may be considered the best for you at that point – things change. You will wake up one day and find that road has been discontinued or someone’s put a road block up or put a diversion in place.

And yet this is what I see all too many website owners do and I’ve been down that one, single road myself. And when it gets shut off or narrowed it hurts.

The most common single road that people use and rely on exclusively is search engine traffic, or more specifically – Google traffic.

Two Minnesota men have found their niche in the travel market by taking groups to scary haunted places. Dave Schrader of Circle Pines and Tim Dennis of Burnsville are leading groups on trips to haunted hotels and spooky cruise ships.

The two started an online radio show called "Darkness Radio" in January 2006. Within a year, their weekly broadcasts had made them celebrities among fanciers of otherworldly mystery.

They then began asking the stars of T-V shows about the supernatural to cohost weekends at haunted destinations.

Online Business Ideas 

Back when I started out in advertising… and even in the first year or so of my freelance career… I had to concentrate to remember exactly what “direct response” meant in the term “direct response advertising”.

Because a lot of the clients and agencies I worked with were oblivious. They understood the concept of advertising – you tried to persuade people to buy your cool new product.

How tough is that to be clear on?

I've gotten so sick of speakers at conferences who want to show you how to make a million dollars. They talk about how great they are and then ask you to invest obscene amounts of money and they will "give you the secret" to wealth and riches.

Will someone PLEASE tell people to STOP buying from these people? I would prefer you learn how to make an extra $250 a month. After you do that you can replicate the process and make MILLIONS next year, OK?

It's like mutual funds. Rather than own ONE site that is brining in all the cash, why not have a few hundred sites each making $250 each?

America loves a good mug shot. The more frizzed, frazzled and frantic, the better. An Orlando entrepreneur has seized on that fascination, recently starting “JAIL,” a weekly newspaper filled with nothing but the unflattering thumbnails. Page after page, with only a few ads in between.

Legal Counterfeiting 101 Or Why ATF Agents Busted Into My Home Back In The 70's

Personalized Water Bottles As A Business Opportunity

Back in the ‘70s, I got a surprise visit from some of the baddest badasses in the U.S. government: Agents from The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms (ATF).

No, I wasn’t printing sawbucks in the basement.  But it seems I’d caught their attention nonetheless.

See, I had a client who was offering a premium entitled, How to Survive the Money Crash.  And being the creative fellow I am, I decided that a whole-brain headline – a lead containing a dramatic visual that represented a money crash – would make my promotion impossible not to open.
