Problem Solving vs Hobby Niches – Which Are More Profitable?

The majority of profitable niches are divided into two main categories. Problem solving, and hobbies. The problem is, people have hard time deciding which they should enter into. This is understandable – it’s a big choice, and there are conflicting opinions everywhere.

One set of marketers will say that anything but problem solving niches are a waste of time, as buyers are desperate to solve their problems and are very willing to pay for an instant solution. Another set of marketers will insist that hobby niches are far more profitable, because the visitors that visit your site are more likely to return and purchase from you multiple times.

While both can be extremely profitable, problem solving and hobby niches are often tackled in drastically different ways. For this reason, we must dig a little bit further before we can decide which category would be more profitable for you. [Read more…]

Blogging from Paradise: How to Build an Online Empire through Blog Commenting Book Review

However, this book opens your eyes as to how large of an impact blog commenting can actually have. Here is my review for Blogging From Paradise: How To Build an Online Empire through Blog Commenting, by Ryan Biddulph. [Read more…]

If You’re A Jack Of All Trades, You’re Bound To Fail

They say if you’re a jack of all trades, you’re a master of none.

I’m sure you likely know that are tons of different ways to make money online today. Blogging. CPA. eBooks. eCommerce. Freelance. YouTube. The list goes on and on.

Today, we have more opportunities available to us than ever before. Today, we’re no longer limited with our options – anyone can start chasing any tactic they wish. This is both a blessing and a curse.

Today, we are facing an ongoing issue called information overload. We have so much information available to us, we don’t know what to do with it. Our attention spans and our ability to focus is declining at a rapid rate. This is bad enough already, but it gets significantly worse when we combine information overload with our emotions.

We humans are emotional creatures. We like to feel. We get excited when we hear about new prospects that can make us money. As a result, some people end up chasing these prospects relentlessly. When they don’t work, they jump at the next opportunity that is presented to them without giving it much thought. This is a huge issue. [Read more…]

If You’re Obsessing Over SEO, Stop!

When I began blogging seriously back in 2010, I made the same mistake so many others are doing at this very moment. I wasted an incredible amount of time doing what I thought was right, only to discover that my time could’ve been better spent elsewhere. I spent countless hours trying to bring visitors to my website, but I was doing it the wrong way.

My mistake? Trying to rank as highly as I could in search engines.  [Read more…]

Starting A New Niche Site From Scratch – An Experiment

I’ve always felt that with enough dedication, anyone can start a new website and succeed. Even now in 2014, while ranking is difficult and expert marketers seem to have made it challenging to compete. Some say making money online today is impossible.  I’ve set out to prove them wrong.

However, I want to make sure this experiment is fair. Therefore, I’m going to level the playing field. I’m going to put myself in a brand new blogger’s shoes. This new niche site is going to be completely anonymous. This means I’m not going to use my Author Rank, current followers, my email list, or my current websites to drive traffic to this one. Other than knowledge, I will have no advantage over someone who is just beginning blogging today. [Read more…]

How Interviewing A Major Celebrity Changed My Business Forever

It was 9 AM on a Tuesday morning. Coffee in hand, I started my work day, checking my website’s email to see what sort of letters I get today. As usual, the majority of it is spam. “Your PayPal account has been limited”. “My husband died, and I’d like to transfer $3,999,999 to your bank account.” Sound familiar? :)

I click over to the final email in my inbox, when my eyes shoot wide open. [Read more…]
