Newbies' Guide to Generate Profitable Niche Product Ideas
By Audrey Ly
Generally, Newbies are told many times that they should create a product according to their expertise or according to their favorite past time. However, to be a successful publisher, it is not about what I, ME and MYSELF. In fact, it has nothing to do with what you like, what you know or where your expertise lies. It is about creating a product to meet the demands of a niche market. Of course, if your skills or knowledge is in fact in demand, then it is a double bonus, as you can do what you are passionate about and make a nice profit from it.
This article is about some great ways to generate niche ideas. At this stage, it is important that you do not self-edit nor self-censor your ideas. Snuff out the little voice in you that shouts,”No! This can't work!” or “This is a crazy idea, no one will buy my product!” There is no such thing as a stupid or crazy idea. Your 'crazy' idea may be a potential best seller, you'll never know. During this brainstorming session, start taking out a piece of paper and start jotting your ideas down. Remember, no editing. Here are some places you can go to for ideas:
*Ebay.com Go to Ebay Pulse to take a look at the popular searches. Try to look for smaller searches as you are targeting a niche market, not a broad market.
*Amazon.com Do a search for the Top Sellers.
*MySpace.com This is the hottest social network on the net and this is a great way to get niche ideas. Take a look at the various groups on the network. If possible, join them.
*Article Directories, such as http://www.goarticles.com , http://www.articlecity.com and http://www.buzzle.com Simply pick a category and scroll down the topics.
*Go to Google Answers (http://answers.google.com/answers) or Yahoo Answers (http://answers.yahoo.com) Check out the archives and take a look at the various questions and answers.
*Go to http://www.magazines.com and browse the topics. It is a good idea to move away from the pc and go to your local magazine store to browse at the various popular topics. You will be surprise some of these topics are still pretty new online.
*Another alternative is http://www.shopping.com
*Find It Quick http://answers.finditquick.com This is similar to Google and Yahoo Answers.
*Ehow http://www.ehow.com This site has a informative articles on a variety of subjects. This is an excellent source for ideas.
*Use Overture.com search for these following terms, “tips”, “learn”, “how do I”, “where do I”
*Elance.com is a popular freelancing site. Take a look at the type of projects bidded. Many marketers hire ghostwriters to write for them. Now, I am not saying that you should steal ideas, but use this as a source of ideas.
*Whonu.com http://www.whonu.com This site has a wealth of information.
*Google Zeitgeist http://www.google.co.uk/press/zeitgeist.html This is another excellent site to keep up to date with the latest trend of searches. You even get to see what countries around the world are searching. Yahoo offers a similar site http://buzz.yahoo.com/
