Making money is great, don’t get me wrong, but if I could find my own niche where I would be helping people, too, that would be even better. Does anyone have a suggestion?

How do I start a successful part time ebay business after selling home items? want to wrk 20 hr wk $3-4k per m

September 9th, 2010

I’ve started selling items from home, and I’m trying to figure out what my next step should be. I do not have a niche market yet. I’ve only sold a few items so far, but it’s pretty interesting. I can commit to 20 hrs per week doing this thing. I’m just wondering what would be the best route for me to take in order to make this a successful part time gig? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

What's the deal with Micro Niche Finder?

September 7th, 2010

So, i’ve been watching these awesome videos from the Micro Niche Finder (MNF) site
that show how to use the tool to find niches and business models to leverage that info.

My question is, does the MNF tool do anything that you coundn’t just do with a little
elbow grease, looking up the info manually. I know it makes things much more
convenient (and this might be a reason to buy this tool), but is it strictly necessary?

I guess the real question is: does MNF do anything unique, anything that you can
not accomplish with other, free tools?

I’m looking for answers from a real users here.


Can anyone please help me understand what is a "niche"? or give at least three examples.?

September 6th, 2010

I notice that there is a niche market and a niche product. But what is a niche? I am confused on how to understand the definition of it. I check under dictionary and it doesn’t make sense under the Business topic. I’m thinking it involves a customer buying the same product of brand over and over again even though the customer has the option to go for another brand but never switches.

In English grammar, can you say, "We are assisting companies identify niche markets."?

September 5th, 2010

This is formal business writing. I’m an editor and the sentence was written by highly intelligent business advisors. However, it sounds to me like someone exchanged the less formal "helping" for the more business-sounding "assisting", without updating the grammar. I think 99% of people would think that the minimal change one could make would be, "We are assisting companies with identifying niche markets."

Can anyone link to rule that proves why "assisting" is treated differently by grammar than "helping" … or is my common sense wrong?

Should I use my real name (personal name) when starting an online business? – privacy/safety reasons?

September 4th, 2010

I’d like to start an online business on the side, but I don’t know whether I should use my real personal name (e.g. John Smith to John Davidson) to protect my private life.

There’s nothing illegal or immoral about my business, just that I wouldn’t want family members, friends and everyone else be able to google my name and find everything about me and what I’m doing, or for my business product buyers to locate were I live throu yellow pages, etc… with a real name it’s quite easy to find anyone nowadays.

Which brings me to my next point, safety. That’s the other reason I’m considering using a different last name. Perhaps I may be over reacting?

My business niche: I’m gonna be selling self-help audio CDs + books using websites and video promotions with me explaining the programs.

I noticed that most celebrities use a different name in show biz all the time, and so does other well known internet marketers and other self-help gurus online like David DeAngelo from DoubleYourDating; he uses other names in other niches.

Honestly, I kinda find this a little dishonest, but I also understand the necessity and the advantages of doing so in certain business situations. That’s why I’m torn about this and I need your point of view… Do you find this unethical, illegal… or normal and practical in the business world? Thanks for your input.
