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

PPC, Pay Per Click - *** to **** Niche

Submitted by Dmitri Davydov on Sat, 2006-08-19 17:08.

I know, it’s a bit ironic but PPC or Pay Per Click is a profitable niche to write about itself. PPC is a billion dollar industry lead by Google and Yahoo, but make no mistake, there are thousands of smaller PPC players, making a buck providing pay per click services to other companies.

The PPC niche can be divided into several broad segments. By far, the biggest one is PPC management. Many companies seek to outsource pay per click management, because they simply don’t have a specialist who can run a PPC campaign or it’s too expensive to hire one. This is where the money is.

What great salesmen know about the mysterious power that secrets hold over people

Submitted by Dmitri Davydov on Sat, 2006-08-19 14:29.

Savvy street hustlers know something most civilians do not: You can’t con an honest man.

You need two critical ingredients in the mix:

1. Greed (which is easily understandable), and...

2. Secrets (which is less easily understood).

Greed gets the mark hooked -- he’s thinking he’s gonna make a killing, or pull one over on someone.

But it’s the secret he carries -- the thought that he is operating almost sociopathically for a change, and feeling damned superior because of it -- that “cooks” the con game. Whether you’re trying to guess which shell the pea is under, or playing pool for money, or buying brand-name merchandise from the trunk of some guy’s car... if you think you’re pulling one over on the hustler, you’re meat.

Private Jet, Jet Charter, Private Jet Rental - **** Niche

Private jets are hot. When you consider all the nonsense that happens with the air transportation industry, the long lines in airports, ridiculous searches, no wonder people are turning to private jets.

Of course, only very rich people can own a private jet, but jet charters, shared ownership and jet rentals are increasingly affordable, at least to the affluent.

If you read newspapers, you know that Warren Buffet bought a company called NetJets a few years ago. This company now owns several thousand airplanes, most of them jets and can pick you from any place and fly you anywhere on a 4 to 10 hour notice. It’s the largest fleet of private jets in the world.

What Do You Do When Customers Complain?

Sometimes the customer is justified in his complaints other times he is not, but the handling of the dissatisfied customer can have far reaching impact on a business.

Now, I want to talk with you about techniques that you should consider when dealing with the dissatisfied customer.

American Management Association research into consumer behavior indicates that the average satisfied customer tells three people about his experience but the average dissatisfied customer gripes to eleven other people. Negative word-of-mouth advertising is a problem few businesses can afford.

Helpdesk, helpdesk software - **** Niche

Since I have extensive background in selling software online, I can attest that there are some niches that are extremely profitable. Helpdesk software is just such a niche.

So what’s a helpdesk? Essentially, helpdesk is a central point through which problems/issues are reported and subsequently managed/co-ordinated. From a wider perspective, it is also seen as core part of the service function, responsible for bringing together multiple resources to address an issue.

Helpdesk software simply automates the process, cutting on the number of employees necessary to handle these issues and expediting the process of solving these problems.

LAS VEGAS — Samantha Taube stepped out of the MGM Grand into the bright sun to walk to the parking lot. After a short distance, she approached a trailer, entered, sat in a dentist’s chair and had her teeth cleaned.

Fixed Annuity, Annuity - **** Niche

Submitted by Dmitri Davydov on Wed, 2006-08-16 18:22.

Annuity is a contract or agreement by which one receives fixed payments on an investment for a lifetime or for a specified number of years.

Annuities, whether fixed or variable, are most often sold through insurance companies or banks and target older folks. There also are companies that buy annuities.

While almost all insurance niches are destroyed by MFA sites (you can find various kinds of insurance on almost any keyword list), annuities, especially the fixed annuity niche has held up pretty well. That’s been my experience so far, anyway.

I believe that the top three bids for “fixed annuity” are between 5 and 8 dollars. But don’t let your greed glands salivate too much, you are not going to get that much. The average is going to be below a dollar, but still way, way more than you can make in MFA infested insurance niches, like auto insurance.

A very critical marketing lesson I learned while trying to bluff a veteran poker player (Hint: I lost.)

I know, I know... I sound like a broken record with the “get a life” rant. But I see the wasting of life as a crime. You know, many subscribers tell me they always wished they’d started a band way back when, or had a few more unseemly adventures before settling down. And I say, yeah, I hear you.
