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

Sheril Cohen Story

http://www.girlonthego.biz/

I rushed back to work as soon as my treatment was finished. Everything was the same, but I was different. My colleagues got all fired up about the minutiae of marketing materials, and I'd think: "Wow, that used to be me." I felt I could make a bigger contribution, but I wasn't sure how.

People often asked me to talk to their family members or friends who had cancer. One of the first questions people asked was: "What about my hair?" I had worried about that, too, and wondered if that made me shallow and vain. But when you're healthy, hair is just hair. When you're ill, it is something else entirely. It's the moment you take a very private struggle public.

Mass Delusion and Other Good Marketing Ideas

One of the very critical techniques that I have used in my mail order ads is a process called “linking.” Basically, it is the technique of relating what the consumer already knows and understands with what you are selling, to make the new product easy to understand and relate to.

One of the easiest examples of this trigger is to explain how it works in a fad. A fad is simply a craze that usually captures the public’s consciousness and quickly creates strong demand, awareness or behavioral changes.

The demand can be for a product such as for the Beanie Babies in 1998 or the citizen band (CB) radios back in the ’70s. It can be simply the strong awareness of a product or concept, such as the Viagra craze in 1998, or it can be for behavioral changes, such as women throwing away their bras during the women’s liberation movement of the late ’60s.

Psychic Readings - **** Niche

I’m amazed at how profitable the psychic readings niche is. I’ve got a spammer to thanks for that one, too. One of my site got spammed with online psychic readings offers and it started to display ads that said “Psychic Advice” Or “$10 Psychic Phone Readings” “Tarot Readings” even“ True God Gifted Psychic”. I just love that one, don’t you?

Anyhow, psychic readings are nothing new. You probably seen ads for phone psychic readings on cable stations for years. These psychics (if they are psychics indeed), charge your credit card at a rate of 3 bucks a minute of psychic babble, and it’s a great business indeed, since many women consult psychics regularly or every time they encounter a problem.

The Power Of Controversy Marketing, Part II

Disagreeing With An Expert.

If there’s one thing that will get people to open up their eyes and ears is when you disagree with someone who is seen as a noted expert in their field. Just the other day I was reading an email that was promoting an internet marketing product. The email claimed that a specific internet marketing guru was wrong when he said that making money with Google’s adsense program was “dead.”

That sparked a controversy that got a lot of people talking about this new product. Here are some experts in our society that many people respect and whose ideas and beliefs are held to be true.

Diabetes - *** Niche

Diabetes (and some other medical conditions) can be very lucrative in terms of AdSense profits. What makes diabetes stand apart is the fact that tens of millions Americans have this condition and probably hundreds of millions of people worldwide.

As with any niche, you’ll need to do quite a lot of research on diabetes, because I can easily count 10 distinctly different diabetes niches. First, there are people who search for diabetes information and want to know how type 1 diabetes is different from type 2 diabetes.

Second, there is a niche for diabetes screening and diabetes prevention. Third, there is a niche for diabetes tests and diabetes testing. Fourth, there are diabetes supplies stores, who sell things like insulin and specialty foods to people who suffer from diabetes.

At age 18, Shawn Nelson was watching TV on the couch when he decided "a huge beanbag thing" might be more comfortable. He bought 14 yards of vinyl, cut it into a baseball shape, and spent three weeks filling it with anything soft he could find.

The finished LoveSac was 7 feet wide, and everyone who saw it tried it out—and loved it.When neighbors started placing orders, Nelson decided to start his company almost as a joke. With free help from his friends, he made the LoveSacs in his parents' basement and sold them at trade shows, events and even the drive-in.

How A Single Mom In Pensilvania Makes A Living Selling Bookmarks Online

My business is designing and laminating bookmarks for wedding favors, business promotions, nonprofit organizations, holidays and other special occasions or projects. I design them on my computer, depending on what the customer wants. Then I print and laminate them.

I came up with the idea of a bookmark business because it was a fun way to express my creativity and would require a low investment. Extensive foot surgery forced me to quit my office job a few years ago, and my doctors told me I would be out of work for more than three years. I knew I had to do something while recuperating, so I decided to look into an online business. I researched my competition and found only one Website selling handmade bookmarks.

The Power Of Controversy Marketing, Part I

Over time, people tend to assume certain things are just a fact and they accept them as such. When someone comes along challenging that long held belief, it creates a controversy.

For instance, it was believed for many years that the earth was flat. When one man came along named Christopher Columbus, who proved that to be false. It created quite a controversy and everyone began to know who Christopher Columbus was.

What are some other longstanding beliefs that can be challenged…

1. Getting a college education will help you make a lot of money.

2. To be successful you have to work extremely hard.

Michael Senoff’s Story.

http://www.hardtofindseminars.com

I first learned about Jay Abraham from a video by Tony Robbins. Jay was speaking at one of Tony's expensive Life Mastery seminars. I was totally blown away by Jay's ideas. Immediately, I started looking for his seminar products.

The first item I was looking for was a set of tapes of the famous Jay Abraham $20,000 protégé mentor training seminar from 1990. You read that right: $20,000. That's how much it cost to attend. The press called it: "The world's most expensive seminar". The students were there to learn how to become a master marketing wizard just like Jay Abraham.

Profitable Geographical Niches (like Lake Tahoe or Aspen) - *** to **** Niche

Submitted by Dmitri Davydov on Mon, 2006-07-31 12:05.

Here is a brainlessly simple, but highly effective strategy for AdSense publishers who specialize in travel and tourism. It’s all about LOCATION. Here are just two examples of profitable locations – Lake Tahoe (most ads are for Lake Tahoe rentals and Lake Tahoe cabins) and Aspen (Aspen, Colorado, is famous for its ski resorts). There are tons more, of course.

Travel sites can generate a lot of money … if you do it right. If you have a site about travel in Colorado or California, you’ll do OK, but not nearly as much, if you target specific niches where the money is.

And the money is in expensive resort and popular destinations. Take Colorado. Boulder is a beautiful town, but the real money is in Aspen. Aspen is expensive, it draws tons of skiers and is fairly crowded in the off season, but more importantly there are hundreds Aspen rentals, Aspen lodges, Aspen cabins and Aspen hotels (these are the keywords to go after).
