Are you ready to learn how to find highly profitable niche markets? We’re going to dive into my seven-figure niche finding secrets.
For those of you that know me, I started affiliate marketing back when I was about 19 years old. I started in various different niches, and started trying to learn how this stuff works.
I tried to figure out what I needed to do to make a living online.
Maybe you feel like you’re in that spot, too. Maybe you’re thinking, “Yeah, Marcus, I want to make money online, but I really don’t know how to do it. A lot of people are telling me a lot of different things, and it’s really confusing, and I need some help.”
Here’s the deal. In marketing, you’re going to learn about two different types of fruit. One is low-hanging fruit, and the other is high-hanging fruit.
Now, the low-hanging fruit is on the bottom of the tree, and it’s really easy to get.
The high-hanging fruit is hard to get, and it’s at the top of the tree.
When you’re dealing with an internet as big as the internet we have today, you have a lot of fruit at the bottom. There’s a lot of stuff that you could go for and get results really quick. You could even make seven figures with low-hanging fruit.
An example of low-hanging fruit in the marketing world is the long-tail, big keywords, and they’re a pain in the butt, and they don’t always work right.
But the fact of the matter is that you really need to focus on what you can get and what you can do.
And in reality, you really can get the low-hanging fruit.
If you can find out the keywords that people are searching for, and the places people are hanging out, I think you can get a good grasp on how this works.
If you can focus and figure out how these ads work, and what people are doing online, then you can go out and make a lot of money.
You can get the intent behind why people are doing what they’re doing, which is extremely important.
Right now, money is flowing around everywhere. There is a lot of money flowing online—millions and millions of dollars are being spent every single minute.
Even more, advertisers are paying billions of dollars on paid ads, sponsored ads, banner ads, video ads, and everything like that.
We have to look at this and ask how this works, and understand where this is going to lead us.
Recently, some people have been asking me if my methods still work with how the economy is now, and how the internet is always changing, and only the “gurus” seem to be making money.
But that’s not actually the case.
There are actually hundreds of thousands of people, just like you and me, who are making a living online.
The way I make this happen is by creating “simple sites” online. So, what’s the big secret to making these simple sites work?
My simple sites work because they’re based on what people are searching for online. They put you completely in control of the content. You direct the visitor to where you want them to go.
My goal is to find people that need something. Then I educate them on what they need, why they need it, and what to do. If I do that, then I increase the value of the traffic instantly.
We’ll show you how this works.
Did you know that right now, I can send an email to everyone and ask, “Hey, are you interested in financing your house?”
A lot of people probably wouldn’t want that email because you’re here for my webinars. But if I did that, every click I generated from the email would now be worth more money. Does that makes sense?
That’s the difference.
All clicks are the same. It’s just a matter of what people are clicking on. All searches are the same.
It’s just a matter of what people are searching for. And it’s our job to go into the brain and say, “I’m going to think about what they want.”
There are some keywords out there that are super competitive. People pay top dollar for certain search terms — $50. $60, even $70 a click.
Until now, traffic for these keywords has been super competitive, overpriced, and not profitable. If I had to pay $10 or more per click, I’d be making nothing.
But 99% of the time, every keyword will have a word related to it that is much cheaper. It’s like finding a penny on the ground, and someone is willing to buy it for $100.
There is a backdoor to every niche, even the competitive ones.
Here’s the ticket. Instead of going for the high competition stuff that everyone goes for, go for something else.
This is what I call flipping the market. It’s about understanding what people want.
Here’s the deal. On one side of the coin, we have a keyword.
This has everything tied to it, and everyone knows it’s valuable, so they’re paying for it, and they’re bidding it up. On the other side, we have people searching for all kinds of stuff.
Our job is to find out how we can link them together.
How to Find Non-Competitive Niches with Hidden Profit
Let’s talk about how to find non-competitive niches with hidden profit. We’ll go into this in a moment.
1. Find your need niche.
2. Find higher paying offers. You might find offers for $30 to $100 and more. Or, use simple converting offers.
3. Set up a direct site, promoting the offer.
4. Get some traffic. Use the easiest methods you can.
5. Watch what your visitors click on. Get them to opt in. Be interactive.
I have a question for you.
When is the best time to sell home security systems?
It’s after a break-in in a local area.
If your neighbor gets robbed, what do you do? You instantly go get insured, you get security, you call people, and you deck out your house with security stuff. This is the best time.
If you’re a security salesman and you go to a neighborhood that just had a break-in, your conversion is crazy.
We can convert this idea to online.
After a local break-in, a lot of people are searching online for home security systems. And that traffic gets competitive.
Advertisers might pay $11, $15, or $30 a click.
But if you had to pay $30 in this market, or $10, or even $5, you’re not going to make any money.
But how could we get traffic in this market now?
We can make money on these markets with affiliate offers. So we can go to OfferVault and look for a related offer that’s a lot less competitive.
Let’s say we look at offers for a related search term, “crime statistics by zip code”. These people are probably looking to move, or maybe they’re looking up break-ins, or maybe they heard about a break-in. Or maybe they watch the news and got scared.
We can get this word for 23 cents a click.
You could provide information for people looking up crime rates for their zip code, and you could recommend a home security system.
This is an example of flipping the market. This can work for any niche.
How to Find Super Profitable, Untapped Niches and Flip Them to Profit
How do we find these markets? How do you come up with stuff like “crime statistics by zip code”?
Well, what I do is I use something called trigger words. I can go here and go to my trigger word tool, and I can type something in that has nothing to do with anything other than a trigger word.
It takes a bit of work, but once you find these, it’s like finding gold.
I’ve used these many times to find backdoors into different competitive markets.
A lot of these trigger words are included in your Simple Sites course. If you don’t have that yet, you can get it at www.SimpleSitesBonus.com.
Here are some of our trigger words:
- Online courses
- Question and answers
Our full trigger word list is around 300 words long.
And you can use these alongside different tools so that you get a good overview of what you’re working with.
And this is the kind of thing that we do all the time that gets us into markets that work extremely well.
Another method I use is the glossary method.
This is another great method. You can go into a market and find all the terms that people are looking up. Then you can put them into a list.
You’ll find terms that have a lot of searches and low competition.
We also teach you the product method. This is if you have a product that you’re leading with.
We teach more about these methods in the Simple Sites course.
Pairing the Right Offer with Your Niche
The key here is pairing the right offer with the right niche.
All traffic will work if you have the right offer.
Everything works if you have the right offer. If you don’t have the right offer, nothing is going to work.
There are some major categories that you’ll look at with your keywords. Here is a list of categories.
- Business Opportunity
- Membership Clubs
- Mobile Optimized
- PIN Submit / SMS
- Social Network
These are some basic categories. There are lots and lots of offers for all these categories, but you have to be creative to make it work. This is why the stuff that I do works.
Pairing the offer with the niche is everything.
You have to think about what the user ultimately wants, and how you can help them. Right now, how can you help them?
Then focus your landing page, make sure your offer and payout match, and visualize the possibilities.
Because if you can pair the right offer with the right keyword, you can make tons of cash. The key is training your brain to see the opportunities.
Remembering that these are your visitors.
They’re super hyper, crazed, “Give me what I want right now” type of people. They are a ticking time bomb. And if they can’t find what they want in a few seconds, they’re out of here.
Your site must have a goal and a purpose. What do you want them to do? Do you want them to click something? Buy something? Opt in? Then you must put it in front of them.
The key is that your content must lead them where you want them to go. You are directing the traffic in your web sites. You need to control the conversation. You need to make it about you.
Control the narrative. Control the way they consume the information. You are in charge. You’re in charge of how they see it, and your content must lead people where you want them to go.
It’s very easy to give people what they want.
Remember that once you find this, value is the future of CPA marketing. You can create value in the form of a PDF, an mp3, infographics, video files, articles, spreadsheets, cool quotes and interviews, lots of stuff.
Another tip is to add interactive tools like dropdowns, questions, forms, search boxes, check boxes, monetized ads, reports, downloads, videos, and things like that.
