10 Step Quick-Start Guide to Building a Profitable Niche Site

Ready to start making money from niche marketing?

This quick start guide will walk you through every step of the process, from coming up with the idea to creating a profitable site.

Step 1 – Brainstorm Twenty Possible Niches

Carry a notebook with you. You’ll probably come up with ideas when you’re in the least likely places.

Look online for inspiration. Look at Google Trends, Amazon.com and eBay Pulse to see what’s hot right now. Browse bookstores for more inspiration.

Step 2 – Research Each Niche

Do some basic traffic research. How much traffic is in each market? How much competition is there?

Cut out the clearly bad ideas and start to narrow down your list.

Step 3 – Pick the Best

Pick one market to tackle. The market should have adequate traffic and low to moderate competition. Furthermore, the market needs to be passionate or desperate about solving the problem. Customers need to be willing to spend money, preferably repeatedly.

Step 4 – Learn the Market Inside Out

Start reading the blogs. Start reading the forums. Get to know their language, get to know their problems and get to know what your competition is offering. Become an expert on the market.

Step 5 – Pick a Domain and Install the Framework

Choose a domain that’s either catchy and memorable or keyword rich. Install Google Analytics and set up the basic framework for your website (i.e. WordPress if you’re using it.) Make sure you have a site map, about us, terms of service and privacy policy page, which is recommended for SEO and required for AdSense.

Step 6 – Create a Killer Product

Create a product that fills a gap in the market. Make sure that whatever you create is 100% unique and completely unlike anything else out there. You’ll want your product to be a USP in and of itself.

Step 7 – Create A Killer Sales Process

Create a killer sales page or sales video. Make sure that your sales page gets to the user emotionally. Get them to really feel the pain of the problem and feel genuinely excited about getting the solution.

Step 8 – Write at Least Ten High-Quality Articles

Write at least ten high-quality articles, which are at least 500 words in length. This is both to prove to users that you know what you’re talking about, as well as to help get your site ranked in Google.

Step 9 РSet Up Your Autoresponder & Write Your First Five Messages

Get a subscription from the autoresponder of your choice. Write your intro message, along with the first five emails to send out through your autoresponder.

Step 10 – Pick a Traffic Strategy and Execute

Pick one or two traffic strategies and put all your energy into executing on those strategies. Do one or two well, rather than try to take on too many at once. Once one is working, then and only then add another.

This ten-step quick-start guide will take you from the beginning of not having anything to having a profitable site in two to eight weeks. The rest is up to you!
