A recent speaker I had the pleasure of listening to said, “It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to BE.”
She was referring to starting your online business and delivering her speech to a roomful of aspiring internet marketers whose main frustration was getting started. The problems people were having varied, but you can probably identify with one or more of these:
- Unable to decide what to pursue and what will give you the best chance of success
- Overwhelmed by the amount of options and markets to go into
- Fear that an idea you pour your heart and soul into is going to fail
- Worried that you don't have enough time to give it a proper shot (especially if it's wasted)
- No idea where to start researching and preparing to enter your market
- You don't have the needed knowledge to do it, be it technical, copywriting or marketing
- You don't have oodles of money to risk getting started when you're not 100% sure what you're doing
Which of these is reaching out and choking you right now?
Too many times we paralyze ourselves with worry over certainly very real reasons, but they prevent us making a step until sometimes weeks, months or years go by and we realize we're not where we wanted to be right now.
If you're experiencing a bit of “paralysis by analysis” at the moment, then pay especially close attention because you might be surprised at how painlessly you can take that first step.
We requested special access to Niche Profit Classroom because it's developed by two proven internet marketing experts with real experience. Adam Short and Alen Sultanic have huge success with their methods (to the tune of almost $100k/month) and they openly teach the same methods, no holds barred.
Alen and Adam both walk the talk and teach from years of experience perfecting the art of niche marketing. Because of their complementing strengths and skills, the knowledge they have to offer is well-rounded and especially comprehensive. It's fairly important to learn from people who've been through the trial and error themselves, or else you're not getting the full picture.
What is Niche Profit Classroom?
Niche Profit Classroom is a hybrid.
I wouldn't call it strictly a course, although detailed training is certainly what you receive. But you won't be sat down and taken through a static set of modules that leave you still unsure where to start at the end of them.
The step-by-step training shows you how to get started and more permanently, Niche Profit Classroom is an extensive library of marketing resources that you can draw on when you need them. Some areas you may not need to know straightaway. That's okay, just delve into the training that you need. As you grow your business, you've got the extra training there and ready to support you.
For example, you could look at getting your web site hosted and content-rich for free search engine traffic as your first priority. Then look at how to get even more traffic – free and paid, social and viral media, later.
Niche Profit Classroom is geared to get you through those first few steps easily and quickly, and then continues supporting you with fresh knowledge afterwards, so you're continually educating yourself for long-term results.
I think you'll be more than surprised by the diversity and depth of Adam and Alen's training. Here's a detailed look at what you'll find inside Niche Profit Classroom.
Niche Profit Classroom – The Niche Marketing 2.0 System
This is the first point of call in the Niche Profit Classroom Members area, which is really just scratching the surface.
It's a 13-part course stepping you through the Niche Marketing 2.0 system, using multiple videos, downloadable materials and an action plan. This makes up just a fraction of the full suite of training materials.
This is aimed at helping you get your niche web site launched swiftly and making a profit. It's your launch pad as a niche marketer basically, to get your income flowing as quickly as possible.
The Niche Marketing 2.0 Training Center.
Within a lesson, you get video training, downloadable PDFs and action steps.
NPC Media Center
The NPC Media Center is pretty impressive. They state that it “might just be the largest Internet marketing video library on the Internet!” and if it's not, then it's certainly close to! (and growing as they continually add more).
After you've completed the Niche Profit Classroom initial training, there are literally hundreds of training videos taking you step-by-step through a wide range of internet marketing methods and topics. Pick the topic you want to learn about and you'll then be taken to the list of videos just on that topic.
This resource center is perfect for growing your traffic and leveraging your web site further. By following these guides, you can automate your business – set it and forget it. The ultimate goal is to have your business growing on autopilot, while you can be off doing other more important things :)
This is the complete list of topics in the NPC Media Center at the moment:
NPC Media Center Video Training Library.
So let's say you want to find out more about making money with Squidoo. You click on that and you then have a list of 39 videos that you can watch to learn how to turn Squidoo into a profit machine.
The 39-video list for one section of the library – “Making Money with Squidoo”.
Everything's in bite-size chunks so you can self-pace and pick up easily where you left off.
For example, the topic on 60 Traffic Techniques offers a dedicated video for each technique and you can easily learn a few a day (or fast-track it if you prefer).
If you like having things demonstrated then this video library is an amazing marketing resource that is continually added to.
NPC Ready-made Niche Businesses
Members of Niche Profit Classroom receive 2 ready-made businesses – every month. Each niche has been pre-researched, profiled and materials prepared ready to go. How easy do you want it!
They're called Niche Packs and contain high quality material that can be used straight away. Each NPC Niche Pack includes:
- Audio upsell (professionally recorded)
- Professional sales letter
- SEO-ready articles
- Keyword lists
- Customized 21-day Traffic Blueprint
Now what if others are doing the same thing? To help you stand out from the crowd, you'll also receive a 3-part video series telling you how to customize this business-in-a-box so that you can tailor it and make it your own. No advanced knowledge necessary.
Below you can see the Niche Packs for June and you can download the whole pack or just individual components. Highlighted in yellow you see a video of “Why We chose the ….. Niche”.
This is tremendously valuable for you. Including the reasons why a niche was chosen is a great way to help you understand the “why” behind this important decision-making process. It's training as you go for confidently choosing your own niches as well.
2 NPC Niche Packs released monthly with materials provided.
NPC Teleseminars & Interviews
As well as NPC members-only teleseminars/webinars, there are also interviews with internet marketing entrepreneurs and business-building experts.
You'll have the opportunity to attend the online live events, or listen to the recordings at a later stage. They're made available to all Niche Profit Classroom members and it's another great format to learn new tips, direct from successful entrepreneurs who've been there before you.
An example is Dr Andy Williams' interview on “How to Build Cash Producing Affiliate Sites”. For over an hour, Andy speaks about the unique methods for building affiliate sites that rank highly and make money.
This is a continual stream so you can keep up-to-date with the latest methods and tips from several industry experts, not just Adam and Alen. It's a sure way to stay competitive, in touch with the market, and bring more home to the table.
MoneyWord Matrix Desktop Edition
The MoneyWord Matrix is a separate software tool developed by Niche Profit Classroom to help you get into the top 10 search engine listings for Google, Yahoo and MSN, without spending hours on boring analysis.
The MoneyWord Matrix SEO method looks at how competitive a given keyword is. So using the matrix, you'll have foreknowledge of which keywords are difficult to rank for and what will be the best bet. This helps you to fly “under the radar” and generate a high level of quality traffic with the right choice of keywords.
As far as tedious jobs go, this is certainly one that you want to automate.
The MoneyWord Matrix Desktop Edition complete with video training.
Niche Profit Classroom Software tools
In addition to the MoneyWord Matrix, there are additional software tools freely downloadable by all NPC members. As well as being excellent time-savers, you're also holding on to your cash.
These software shortcuts include:
- MoneyWords Keyword Tool – to find the most lucrative keywords in your market
- Market Scorecard – to find the markets that are worth pursuing
- Market Profiler – so you can profile the niches you are investigating
- Market Checklist – to keep track of your progress with each web site you launch
- Sales Letter Wizard – create compelling sales letters that convert, in minutes
Current list of Niche Profit Classroom free software tools.
Niche Profit Mastermind Webinars
Mastermind twice a month with live group webinars, most of which are 2+ hours and packed with valuable content. You can pick up innovative ideas from these sessions that aren't common knowledge (particularly to your competition) – another great way to fast-forward you through to niche marketing “expert” level.
Unlike the teleminars and Interviews I've just described where you listen to established authorities, these webinar sessions are focused on giving you personal assistance through the use of presentations, Q&A and “Hot Seats” where they unmute selected members and give dedicated instruction.
Here's a list of the 12 Niche Profit Mastermind webinars so far this year.
2 content-packed webinars per month for NPC members.
And a closer look inside one of the beginning webinars.
February's Mastermind Session Webinar with 2 hours of content.
Mastermind webinars are another useful format to keep you motivated and give you the knowledge you need to grow your business and profits.
Niche Profit Leaders – NPC Forum
Ever joined a forum community and been disappointed with the experience?
Well, Niche Profit Classroom has done something unusual.

Niche Profit Hot List
In Alen and Adam's hot list, they show you the best of the best tools and resources so you can just focus on what works and not waste time on the rest.
Learn how to maximize your tools for each purpose.
Given their vast experience, this resource can be a huge time saver, as well as saving you wasted money on tools and methods that are not worth your while.
Niche Profit Press
If you think you're weighed down by lack of technical knowledge, then imagine if you could create a web site from start to finish in under an hour, or even half an hour after a little practice?
Using the free blogging platform WordPress and combining it with NPC's Niche Profit Press template and free hosting account means you can have your own niche marketing site up and running – virtually free. You'll just need less than $10 to buy a domain name.
With your Niche Profit Classroom account, you can host up to 15 domains. With each domain, you get:
- 100 MB Disk Space
- 1000 MB Monthly Bandwidth
- 20 Email Accounts
- 20 FTP Accounts
- 5 mySQL Databases
- DB Management: PHPMyAdmin
- A cPanel Account
- Web Mail
This is of course provided with video tutorials on how to set up and manage your hosting account. These are the 3 instruction videos they provide:
Step 1: Signup
Step 2: Setup your FTP account
Step 3: Setup your Nameservers
Sure you might eventually need more than 15 domains eventually, but it's one less thing you need to worry about when you're starting out. Apart from the savings on web site hosting, you'll also have the sense of accomplishment of knowing exactly what to do with it through the step-by-step videos.
NPC Pros and Cons
The Niche Profit Classroom Members Area is massive and loaded with practical training. To summarize, these are the things that stand out about Niche Profit Classroom, both good and bad:
- 2 pre-researched niches and materials monthly to get the business started, even if you don't have time to find and research a niche
- Huge library of video tutorials that you can refer back to at any time
- Continual webinars, teleseminars and interviews to keep updating your knowledge
- Doesn't require a large starting investment, eg. WordPress and hosting are free
- Tailor-made free software tools to help you get started
- Easily worked in with a day job, family time or other commitments
- Applicable for affiliate and non affiliate marketers (anyone marketing to a special niche)
- Suitable whether you have your own product or not (there's training for both ways)
- Sustainable business model for income over the long-term
- Hundreds of hours of information which can be overwhelming (you can't tackle it all at once)
- Although most of the training can be transferred to most online marketing, this is primarily for niche marketers
- All training is primarily visual through videos/webinars, or audio through interviews/teleseminars. If you're not a person who learns best visually, then it might take some getting used to
- Focused more on digitally delivered products. While many niche marketing methods apply to both physical and digital products (still a targeted niche), this is more for information products
- It's not a get-rich scheme (it's more if you're in it for the long-haul and creating a permanent business)
Niche Profit Classroom in Action
