How to Make Money in a Small Niche With a Simple Business Model

ecomm

When it comes to earning money online as a marketer, most people go wrong in exactly the same place. That crucial error? Their ambition. Unfortunately, too much ambition is very commonly the downfall of many online businesses and marketers which essentially causes them to bite off more than they can chew and then give up too easily.

Instead of aiming to become rich or change the world, it makes much more sense to start off small. Aim to accomplish something small first and then build on each success to eventually reach the top.

So what might this look like?

The Small Niche Business Model

SmartPassiveIncome.com is a blog owned by internet marketer Pat Flynn which shares his methods for earning money. One of his most successful recent ventures was a website aimed at food trucks. This is a very small niche that made it easy for him to find routes to market (ways to communicate with the target demographic).

Compare this with creating a website in the ‘fitness’ niche and you can imagine how much easier it is to get noticed and to reach the right audience. From here, Pat began making money from selling an eBook aimed at those food trucks that would help them make more money and apply smart business skills.

THIS is the exact same business model that first time internet marketers should be using. You might decide to choose a different niche (sticking with a career is often a good choice though) and you may decide you’d rather sell an affiliate item. The general model though is almost flawless for the inexperienced marketer.

Why This Works

So what’s so good about this business model?

For starters, choosing a small niche to operate in means that you’ll be able to much more easily get noticed. If you choose to go the PPC route for instance, you’ll pay far less for advertising in this niche as compared with the amount you’d pay for a bodybuilding or dating related keyword.

At the same time, this helps you to come up with a very clear value proposition and offering. Ideally, your product should set out to solve a very specific problem for a very specific group of people. This will make it much easier to market that product, to promote it and to encourage people to consider buying.

My #1 Tip for Online Marketing Beginners

image8

Whether you’re a small business owner trying to create or enhance your online presence, or a newbie to the online marketing arena, the biggest thing is to just get started.

When I first started in offline marketing, the concept was brand new. Thanks to evolving technology and new and unique ways to market to our customers, whoever they may be. Most small businesses didn’t even realize they needed this type of service yet. And even when they did, things were constantly changing. Google changes, text message marketing, QR codes and more new types of custom advertising.

As an offline marketing business consultant, naturally I needed to learn and keep up with them. There were quickly new tools becoming available. There was also education becoming available. The reason for that is because it was such a much needed service. So the firsts to become successful at it realized they could benefit even more, by showing other people how to become financially independent, and provide this much needed service at the same time! It’s all good! :)

The same to be said of the online marketing arena. Affiliate marketers, store owners, product developers, Kindle authors, and anyone else wanting to try and better their future, all soon realized that they had to learn everything they could because of all the quick changes.

Now here’s my simple point. While continuing my education, and acquiring new tools, I would study some of the other students. The questions they asked, the things they would say, and it always came down to one thing. Fear. Fear of rejection, fear of getting started, fear of failure. I’m not here to talk about fear. That’s a different post! I’m here to take an ounce of that fear away. For the newbies!

The first rule of thumb when starting out online is your domain name. I always recommend getting your own. Don’t let an “all in one online suite” of anything, have your domain name. Offline marketers, don’t let those big marketing firms who tout awesome SEO skills, have your domain name.

I know the domain name is what keeps beginners from getting started. Especially if you’re on a limited budget you really want to get it right. So maybe you just have to keep doing your niche research right?

Well sure, but quit using that as an excuse. Here’s my tip: Go now, and get yourself a (dot)info. GoDaddy sells (dot) infos for 3.99! Get that thing going. Get your hosting, transfer the domain, install a wordpress blog and just start doing! Play. Have fun. Get inspired.

You’re going to get experience, you’re going to get ideas, and you’re going to be on your way! And then when you’ve found the perfect domain name for your project, product or service, you’ll get that baby up in no time. You’ll have gotten the kinks, the little mistakes, and the (possible) big mistakes out of the way.

Best of all you’ll feel your confidence level on the rise. And I personally recommend that you proceed with confidence! (In everything that you do!) Go do it. Now!

What if I told you, that everything you’ve heard about making money on the internet was a lie?

money

Bold, right? Well I won’t tell you that everything you’ve heard or read about making money on the internet is a lie. Just because I don’t know what you’ve read or heard.

But I can tell you this. That the majority of it is bullcrap! If you think you’ll be able to fire your boss with Affiliate Marketing or TeeSpring, you may be waiting…and waiting, for a while!

“But Ali you promote these kinds of things”

Yes I do! And I do make money with them and you can too! If you are armed with the knowledge and tools to help you get there as quickly as possible.

But please keep in mind that all those gurus with pictures in front of mansions, standing next to their Lamborghinis are just “stuff” on the internet. If you’re going to buy into this notion that a few small, inexpensive moves are going to enable you to set and forget, and sit back and reap a gold mine…. well have you seen the Brooklyn bridge? I’m selling it cheap! Interested?

The truth is there’s a lot of other things that factor in here. You need to have a real passion. You need to have focus and discipline. You need to have a PLAN. If you want to make money selling T shirts then you’d better be pretty darn passionate about T shirts and have an eye for graphic design! (Then the tools to market successfully).

You also must know where you’re going and WHY! In fact if you’re listening to any of the real experts, the people I trust, they’ll tell you that your mindset is the first place to start. You might not believe that but I’m telling you it’s the truth. And it’s harder than you think! The next thing they’ll tell you is you need to start from the end! You must figure out your why!

Since the WHY is a very huge factor, and there’s so much more to do after that, like figure out where you want to go next, I’m offering you a golden nugget!

Sifting between the who’s who and what’s what out there, actually takes a whole lot of time! And yes, money!

Motivation: How To Fire Up Your Inner Drive

It happens to all of us. One day, we just wake up lacking the energy to do anything. Not wanting to go out of bed, not wanting to stay in it either. That’s normal. That’s the stuff of life, so to speak. What is not normal though is getting entangled with lack of energy, lack of drive, lack of motivation. What is not normal is to continuously talk yourself into the act of not doing anything. But what do you do when all the drive inside of you are purged out? Maybe you can begin with the following recommendations.

Think of the worst-case scenario – We have all been told that envisioning success is a good motivator. Now, why not do the exact opposite? Why not envision a future that is bleak, hopeless and stripped off all happiness and success. Why not envision yourself living eternally in a rut where sense of accomplishment and a tiny hope are inexistent?

Scary, right? Few people realize that they already own a one-way ticket towards this very vision. Now what you want to do is to get off your butt and work your way out of the train wreck you are heading to. Turn your life around and work for a goal. Now, that is getting motivated.

Set a date for change and commit to it – Change must come to everyone of us. Sometimes it is forced upon us, sometimes we choose when it will happen. It is always much more preferable to have control over the change that can take us over. If the change you are seeking requires a specific date on the calendar, then set it. Make a huge, red circle around the date and stick with it. Let this serve as a motivator to start doing the things you should have done weeks, months or years ago. Let this chosen date serve as the new beginning of your life.

Break the routine – When you’re doing the same thing every day, sooner or later, the energy that you once had will drain out. No matter how passionate you were with your work, project, or goal when you were just beginning, you will suffer from lack of motivation once your body senses that it is doing the same thing day in, day out.

Don’t be afraid to break the routine once in a while. Quit work for a full day. Stop doing your routine for a week. Take a month-long vacation. Take on a new hobby for a year. These can help energize you and rekindle your drive. And while you’re taking your break from your routine, don’t lose the faith that you will have the same kind of energy you once had by the time you get back to work.

Don’t lose sight of your goals – It is easy to lose your focus when there is too much distraction around. Whether it’s the kids, clutter at your work area, Twitter or Facebook, you will find that these simple things remind you of other things that can drive your concentration away from the task at hand. To prevent yourself from killing your own motivation, always try to stick with your goals and shut out whatever it is that it trying to reduce it.

Let’s talk about Fear

If you wonder why we fear things you probably have heard the phrase “fight or flight.” This refers to a very real change that occurs in our body when we experience fear. It’s a survival mechanism.

Imagine you are jogging in the park and you catch a glimpse of a man running at you with a baseball bat. You don’t think about whether he wants you to throw a few pitches for batting practice – you run like heck. Your internal survival system is telling you to flee danger.

When our fight or flight response is engaged, a series of nerve and chemical responses are triggered. Adrenaline and cortisol are released into our bloodstream and this causes other systematic changes.

The respiratory and heart rate increases. Blood is pumped into your muscles to give you more energy to run away or to fight. Your pupils dilate and you have a heightened  awareness of every noise, movement and smell occurring around you. You look right and left for an attacker.

As soon as the fight or flight response is activated we perceive everything as a danger. You are in survival mode. Does it surprise you to learn that even your smallest fears cause this same response within your body?

When you are in survival mode your thinking is ultra-focused on getting away from the danger to safety. This is an incredibly powerful source of lifesaving energy when faced with danger.

However, most people don’t face real physical danger on a daily basis. Now if you are a soldier or first responder, you do have frequent engagements with life threatening situations. But for most of us, our fight or flight response is used more to protect ourselves in a world of psychological rather than physical danger. You may have felt your muscles tense the last time your boss asked you to work more hours over the weekend. Or perhaps you want to advance you career by taking on speaking engagements, but the thought of doing this makes your stomach  churn.

Unfortunately fear can keep us from achieving our dreams and it can even make you ill. If you experience extended periods of anxiety, poor concentration or depression, your fears may be taking over your life – and your health.

The first step in learning how to manage fear is to understand it.  

Motivation: Winning The Battle In Your Head

Motivation is a funny, complex thing. The thing that motivates one person is always different from that of another even though they are working for the same thing. And while people can motivate other people, they can only do so to a certain degree. At the end of the day, you still have to work out a way to get yourself moving. But when everything looks bleak and all you want to do is to surrender, from where do you muster the will to go on?

Begin with winning the battle in your head.

The battle always starts in the head. One part of your brain tells you to move, work, and strive for what you are working for. The other part tells you that it is foolish. It is always easier to listen to the latter, because it is more convenient, less taxing, and easier to do. The former forces you to act and work. All things equal, people always choose the less inconvenient, easy way out. But this isn’t always the better choice. In fact, it is never a good choice.

What separates very effective people from those who are not is their ability to always make the right choices most of the time, even if these choices are the hardest to make. They know how the game works and they try to beat it every single time. Exhausting, yes, but it is also gratifying. There is always a sense of satisfaction in defeating your worst enemy – yourself.

But how do you win the battle that goes on inside your head?

Understand your thoughts and how they affect your emotions and your will power. Negative thoughts can easily kill your sense of purpose. It comes in many forms – lack of self-confidence, general negativity, lack of belief in others, procrastination and the list goes on. Each of these has the power to convince you to throw in the towel and accept that you can’t carry on. Identifying each of your negative thoughts is the first step to winning yourself back from a defeatist attitude.

It is not simple feat, though. It takes time before one can shut out the voice in the head that says ‘give up, give in’. And sometimes, even when you have already succeeded in neutralizing your negative thoughts, it is still easy to give up at the first sign of a speed bump. After all, it gives you time to rest from the unending struggle to achieve whatever it is you are pursuing, even for just a moment. But don’t buy that. That short period of rest can turn to days, weeks, months, years, ultimately paralyzing you from taking action and living a full life. That’s the characteristic of discouragement. It offers you immediate gratification without securing anything in return.

Try to gain positive momentum every time, instead of succumbing back into a demoralized attitude. Every time, even if that means you have to start the battle in your head all over again.

My Facebook Hiatus

Business people and college students are taking the plunge and either deleting or deactivating their Facebook accounts!  Some in business, are deactivating. This is a temporary measure where you can come back at any time and everything is the same. When I researched it and tweeted about it I found that many young people, would do this to take breaks, say for exams or something important. But I also found that some young people were deleting altogether! Honestly I wasn’t ready to take that final plunge. But I found deactivation, refreshing, enlightening and quite productive.

 When I first got on in 2009, it was completely addicting. I reconnected with some wonderful people from childhood, some of whom it was like we never parted.  People could just show up anywhere in a conversation and make it so much fun! Put a smile on your face all day. I got to see some family, and pictures. I got to follow musicians! And I loved hearing people’s choices in music. And classic cars, and see who else was nuts about muscle like me! I adore the workout enthusiasts, and love to surround myself with beneficial friendships where we can motivate each other! And politics. Yes really! I don’t usually voice my political opinion but I love reading others, and thinking. I may or may not agree but have still found some wonderful endearing friends! We don’t have to agree… it’s ok! (I agree with myself that I don’t like any of them! The politicians, that is) Sometimes it’s even fun to see what you’re eating…..and uh, drinking too… I guess! My Bears groups (I could stay there all day!)  And oh how I enjoy the Monday hater’s (you could do something about that..) and the Friday lover’s ( LOVE me some Fridays! Love Mondays too #DontJudgeMe)

 I also have an amazing group of inspiring business associates, entrepreneurs and mentors! I am still giddy with glee that I am “friends” with my biggest, most beloved, most inspiring and most awesome mentor (who told his students to get on social media..in 2009! Thank you, Jim!).  This is the area..I hands down consider the “Facebook time” well spent!

 Now you’re lucky if you get to see something  you enjoy because Facebook  controls your timeline and you could be missing tons! It literally thinks it knows what you want to see.   (Oh but that’s ok,,you can find it..sooner or later..just keep looking….tick tock) ” Oh, there it is…HAHAHA that was hilarious! 45 minutes in.

 The “sharing” a few years ago was real. Real people connecting. I have a whole family of Bears fan friends that I don’t even really know, who open themselves up and share who they are. There are some real gems! And I enjoy interaction from the people I personally know and the people I don’t!

 Now the term “sharing” has taken on a whole new life.  18 recycled, regurgitated pictures on 6 different “liked” pages show up, along with the 4 friends that liked it and shared it!  Sometimes they’re inspiring, or funny. Other times they’re just downright depressing! Please don’t misunderstand, I do like seeing your opinions and likes. If we all used our brains instead of the share finger, we could come up with some really clever and funny ways to share what we really think and who we really are. Imagine the possib…..

 Sharing works in other ways too. They share info about you. They “reserve the right to”.. Wait I haven’t checked for the latest privacy update, let me get back to you on that. I wish mainstream media would show you and educate you with the documentary “Terms and Conditions May Apply” it is  SO important that you are at least educated!  But if you can’t see that one..at least google “KlearGear.com” and check out THEIR terms and conditions! Very, very costly to those who didn’t! (really, seriously, check it out!)

 While I got on Twitter about the same time, I notice right away that if you wanted interaction from the celebrities you loved, (in my case, athletes..sports media etc.,) that that was the place to be! If you’ve “known” me long enough you know I adore twitter. I think it’s compact and complete. I truly believe that’s why you’ll see athletes use it more. Case and point. If you follow someone on both platforms you may notice there is more interaction on their part on twitter. One might post on Facebook, get 672 likes and 347 responses (in the first 2 minutes) and yet never come back to the post. On twitter, you could get a response 😉 try it sometime!

 Anyway my point wasn’t to build up twitter and knock down Facebook, it’s about the (advanced) life lesson I have learned from it. If you can keep it short, you can still be productive!

 So now during my Facebook hiatus, it was literally like breaking a habit. I even think it was somewhere around 3 weeks! I had to get back on for business sooner or later, but I feel like the coincidental “21 day rule” really did come into play. As I have returned now, I do get a little gut nudge when I want to “just quick check” I hope that continues and I don’t fall back into the old habit. Right now I can take that nudge and go productively run with it. Now I’ll admit, that at the time of this writing..my Chicago Bears just got done putting a whoopin on their favorite Monday night target, the Dallas Cowboys..so some.. “just checkin'” was unavoidable this morning! 😉

 In conclusion, I love the fun like everyone else. But it’s not reality. And it becomes less and less reality every day. It also changes security measures on you on the fly. So please educate yourselves! And now, while I am richer (facetious) for knowing that you like Kraft and Chase Bank ( you’re now on their radar for solicitation) and cute puppies and really funny sh!t, I just wasted 30 minutes of productive time that I’ll never get back.  And if I gave in and commented somewhere, then surely I’ll need to keep checking back…….. uhhhh tick tock…

Encouraging and inspiring people on your friend’s list is always welcomed. Maybe  instead of sharing a quote on a picture every single time, go do something and report back on that! ( Hey now….) The silly, funny and x rated share pics are fun when it’s joking time. But try actually doing something funny. Even if it’s by accident. America’s funniest home video style!  Please leave out the personal versions of the x rated stuff. (Or you can just learn the privacy features!) Share some creativity with us. Share a personal experience with us. If you need guidance, love or even validation, I find that there are always people in Face book land that will be there to give you that! (These also do apply to twitter)

 And if you’re wondering if you need a break from Facebook, ask yourself this. Could I go 2 days without it? Or even 1? If the answer is no, then you need it! Real life is passing you by! Don’t miss something good. Unlike life, regret never spoils.
