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

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.

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.

How To Get Free Airtime And Free Print Ad Space By Setting Up Joint Ventures With Newspapers, Radio Stations And TV Channels

One way to reduce the risk and cost of launching a new consumer product is to get TV stations to run your ads for free. That's exactly what R.D. Smith did when he launched Drive & Grow Rich Inc. This year, Smith, 33, will sell more than $10 million worth of motivational and business CDs and sign up 100,000 new subscribers without paying a cent for advertising.

Smith calls his secret formula "joint venturing" with the media. "Every media outlet has some unsold airtime," he says. "Instead of taking a loss on it, they give it to me in exchange for a split of the sales."

The first time I heard about Chris Carpenter's "GoogleCash" I thought it was the silliest thing I'd ever heard of.

What's GoogleCash?

It's the world's fastest instant business, really.  It works like this:

1) You go to a website that pays commission when visitors you send there buy, and you sign up for their affiliate program

Don Stott On Making Money With Gold

Everyone wants to 'make easy money,' as far as I can see. It's a universal pastime and goal. The question I have, is how does one make money? Can you make money by starting a business? Some can, but most new restaurants fail within the first year, unless they are a franchise.

Franchises seem to do well, because the issuer of the franchise won't sell one unless they have done traffic counts, approve the location, median income of the area, competition, etc. Starting your own, has no franchise fees, and no percentage of the gross to pay to the franchisor, but then, you have no proven name or instructions on how to operate, menu prices and content, equipment and ingredients furnished by the franchisor which makes it work efficiently. I have had two restaurants, non-franchised, and they worked very well, but oh the work!

Why Marketing Is A Process, Not An Event

You write an ad and bid on a keyword.

Someone sees your ad on Google.

She clicks. (And Google whacks your credit card,for 10 cents or a buck or ten bucks... whatever.)

She looks at your website for, say, 10 seconds.

"Nah, that's not what I was looking for," she thinks. Or "Too expensive, I'm going to look somewhere else." Or "Too cheap, must not be any good." Or "That's nice, maybe I'll search again next week." Or "These guys really don't have what I'm looking for" -- even though you have *exactly* what they were looking for, they just didn't spend enough time to see that.

Why long term memory has a long term marketing effect

I have a lot of glaring faults, and very few advantages in life… but the one advantage that has helped me the most in my career has been my memory.

I’m no savant. I often forget why I came into a room… the names of even close friends often disappear from my mind like smoke in front of a fan… and if I hadn’t mastered the art of making lists, I’d be one lost and startled puppy during the workday.

No — it’s my long-term memory that has served me so well. It’s not like I could tell you what I ate for lunch forty years ago on this date (that kind of specific memory recovery apparently happens to some people as they age, though). But I CAN tell you what it felt like to be, for example, a teenager in the early spring of 1968. Not just the sixties, mind you — 1968 specifically, with all the events and Zeitgeist of that particular year.

Is 'Anyone Can Do It' Just A Marketing Schtick?

Any time someone says to you, "Absolutely anybody can do this" you need to hang on to your pocketbook.

I do not believe that "anybody can do..." any specific thing. At least not to a level that the world is going to richly reward.

Let's take some of the stuff I teach. Can anyone build a Google campaign, write ads that get clicks and make their CTR's get better and better with testing?

Sure they can.

Can anyone and everyone expertly build and manage $20,000 of clicks each month?

No. At least I don't think so.

The extraordinarily successful people in the Adwords game are the ones who somehow 'crawl inside' of the campaign and feel what all those numbers and columns mean... who are able to sense what those visitors are clicking on and why. They can look at somebody's ad campaign and in 10 seconds know whether it's put together right, or not. Those are the ones who manage $10,000 or $100,000 of clicks every month and make it profitable.
