Niche Marketing in the Info Product Business

Jun 10, 2008
Informational niche marketing websites are the last frontier of hope for the aspiring entrepreneur. The guru sitting alone on a mountain top and charging whatever he wanted for information is a thing of the past. No longer can small business complete in the real world with the giants of big business. The Internet has given those with the ability to produce an informational product a big edge, however.

Here are the steps needed to establish an informational niche market website on the Internet:

1. The first thing to do is to choose a topic.a theme.a subject that your product will be concerned with. The trick here is to get the topic narrowed down as far as it will go. Go from the general topic of dogs down to small dogs down to Poodles down to Toy Poodles.down to how to groom a toy poodle, for example. The more specific the topic, the better it will perform. Choose a topic that will help people solve a problem, make their lives better, and make them look better or feel better or give them specialized information that they need. Choose several narrow topics that you are interested in yourself.

2. Research the market available for the topics you have chosen. There are many avenues open to you to accomplish your research. Ask questions. Visit websites with topics that are similar to the topics you have chosen. Read articles. Learn everything you can before beginning the construction of your informational product.

3. Once you are satisfied with your topic, have done the research and determined that there is a viable market for your idea, the next step is to choose a domain name and buy it. There are several places on the net to buy domain names one is Godaddy.com but it isn't the only one out there. Choosing a name is usually done by the process of elimination. Make a list of acceptable domain names that describe the topic of your website. Start with the one with the least number of letters in it.less than 20 is better.

4. The next step is to get a host for your website. There are hundreds.more like thousands of companies that host websites. There are free ones and ones that are paid for. There are a variety of options. You will need to do some research and choose the type that is best for you. In very general terms there are shared host servers, dedicated servers and your own servers. It is not practical to try to detail the options in one article.

5. Other than your own informational product you need to choose related content for your website. There are many places on the internet to find content for a website dedicated to almost every topic under the sun. Some content is free for the takingsome must be bought. You can write or video tape your own website content. You can have content written by others. Content is the backbone of your website and this isn't the place to cut corners. All content needs to be relevant to the theme of your website. It is best that it be original, as well.

6. Find and sign up for affiliate programs for products and services that are related to the theme of your informational product.

7. Build your website. In times past you had to know HTML code and how to use it to build a website but that is no longer the facts. You can find WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) programs that you can use to build your website without needing to know the first thing about HTML.

8. Advertise your informational product. There are many ways to do that but the most common way is by using Google Ad words to get started.
