Niche Marketing: 5 Idea Generators For Selling Online

Home business.The wrong way to begin an internet business is to try and invent some great new idea or product that you think people would buy.  Forget about what you think.  It is all about the prospect.  What do they want?  What are they buying?  I’ve seen people invest a lot of their time and hard earned money on product ideas or services before proving that it can be successful.

Why in the world would you do this?  Especially when most people trying to start a home based business do not have extra capital to burn.  Most people are on a very tight budget and need to get something working without losing an arm and a leg trying.

So what is the right way?

The correct way is to discover what people want and then let them buy it from you!

Does that not sound easier?

Find out what they want!  Find out what they want!  Find out what they want!

It kills me to see people do this backwards over and over and over again, even when I’m beating it into them that it is wrong!

You are setting your self up to fail when you fail to follow this advice.  It is my #1 rule to internet marketing.
