Making Money in a Saturated Niche

December 17th, 2007 posted by · 1 Comment

Most people feel that when a niche is saturated it’s time to pull out and move on to something else. They think it won’t be profitable because of all the competition surrounding them. This is true if you don’t know what you’re doing. However, if you’re a pro you can overcome this and make even more money. When I began playing in the make money online niche, which I started doing in 2006, there were thousands of sites and blogs surrounding this niche. With the current trend being to set up a blog, there is even more competition today – a blog can be set up in a matter of minutes and you’re ready to go. To the beginner marketer this can be a scary thought. You may think you don’t have a chance at competing in a market with so many pros around you (and the make money online niche has a lot of pros). The truth is you can compete and profit no matter how crowded the niche is; if you do it properly.

So how do you get started in a niche packed as full as Santa’s toy sack? It’s easy. Just keep doing what you were going to do in the first place. Be yourself and don’t worry about the competition. Eventually build your brand (get a logo and market it to death) and begin building relationships in the community your niche is based around. If you’re going to write about log cabin homes for example, go and visit fellow blogs and sites based on this subject. Get to know your competitors and even become friends with them if you want. Social networking can be extremely beneficial for you, directly or indirectly.

How do I get started?

The first thing to do is decide what you want to focus on. Pick a main keyword and start doing your research. Once you have it narrowed down, try checking out a few different scenarios using to analyze niches and experiment with more keywords.

    I am also in a very saturated niche, it is tough, but when the going gets tough the tough get going right?

    Social networking is the greatest tool and blogs like this one are great.
