Are you sick of hearing that it's too difficult to succeed in niche marketing?
That it's over saturated now and all the good opportunities are already gone?
You might have read this type of garbage in posts or forums.
Over the last week or so I’ve been coordinating the development of five new niche sites using the model that Niche Profit Classroom teaches and it has got me thinking.
As I was searching for low competition niches, I was astounded at how many opportunities I uncovered.
You can rest assured that the opportunity to make great dollars online still exists and I’m going to show you how.
Lots of opportunity when you know where to look
Most people focus just on the US market. However, there are far more users outside of the US market, than there are in it. When you start getting a little creative and looking beyond the US, you can see just how much opportunity there really is internationally. Lots of easy, low hanging fruit to be picked.
Let’s consider the keywords “stop snoring”.
You’ll notice that if you want to get up in the “stop snoring” ranks within the US, you’ve got your work cut out for you.
Page ranks on the first SERP there range from 3 to 5 and the inbound links start at 435 for one site while others are attracting millions.
In Australia there are more than 4000 searches a month on the term “stop snoring”. Let’s examine what you’d need to do to get up here.
Admittedly, it’s not massive search volume. However, the second spot is yours for the taking. Take a look at that 0 page rank and five inbound links.
Let's consider now “dating service” in the US. The landscape looks competitive. Page ranks from 4 – 8 with a minimum of 8,000 back links. You’d have to be serious to jump in here.
At 60,500 local searches a month in the UK, it’s about one ninth of the traffic that the US pulls, however, gaining poll position in the UK appears to be a much easier task.
The top dog has a page rank of 2 along with 500 back links. It’s not a menial task but is certainly attainable with focused effort.
Let’s compare what it takes to rank high for “buy bicycle” in the US and then in Australia.
Page ranks of 3 to 4 and a minimum of 16,000 back links make it a difficult task in the US.
Down under now… Just over 1000 back links and a page rank of 3 should get up up into the 3000 a month or so local searches.
Just the tip of the iceberg
What I’ve just shown you here is the tip of the iceberg. There are so many opportunities right now that are ripe for the picking. Narrowing it down was actually hard to do.
If you’re wondering how I was able to search Google UK, Australia, USA and/or a number of other countries, I’m using the free Firefox plug in Keyword Spy.
It’s a great little plug-in that gives you access to a number of great inline indicators such as page rank and Yahoo! links to name a few.
Keep in mind that one of Google’s prime objectives is to provide relevance to its users. This is one reason why some sites will rank very high in a specific country but lower in another. It depends largely on the type of query, and it it is suited to returning local results or not. The regional domain seems to be a key signal to the search engines that a site is focused on region in particular like Australia.
Australian affiliate networks
Allow me to give a bit of a plug to affiliate programs down under.
There are some really great products and rewarding programs here. It seems, however, that few Australians understand the power of affiliate marketing and there are lots of opportunities as a result.
Here are the leading Australian affiliate networks.
Commission Monster – Has over 100 Australian merchants.
Check My Stats – These guys are located at Bondi Beach, Sydney. A popular tourist destination (smaller merchants).
ClixGalore AU – Over 200 of the merchants here are Australian.
DGM Australia – You’ll find 43 Aussie merchants here and many are big companies.
Coming back to search, it took me about five minutes to discover the opportunities that I've shown you here so I've just scratched the surface.
There are a literally tens of thousands of opportunities for free traffic. All you need to do is search.
We're doing it. . . join us at NPC
I've just done it myself and now we're launching 5 new niche sites.
We haven’t even finished them and already people are subscribing to the email mini courses and we’re climbing the SERPs. It’s a whole lot easier when you’re not battling huge competition.
We’ve been able to delegate most of this project to a young lady in the Philippines. Even though she’s not well versed in site development, I’ve been able to say to her watch these videos and follow the Niche Profit Classroom plan exactly.
It’s one of the great things about NPC. They’ve encapsulated the whole niche profit system for creating winning sites in simple, easy to follow steps. It makes the process of site creation incredibly easy to do and it works.
Niche Profit Classroom have just released version 3 of their training and it's amazing. Even better than before.
For a limited time, you can see exactly the same training that we're using to build the new niche sites to capitalize on the big opportunities that are still around for just $1 for 14 days.
If you're interested in discovering the exact plan we're following for our 5 new sites, why not take a quick look the NPC video.
