Selling a Niche Product – Choosing the Right Item to Promote For Maximum Revenue

If you are trying to make money online, selling a niche product can provide an easy way to do so. You just need the right audience and the right product.

Step 1 – The first thing that you need is the right audience. If you already own your own blog, you likely have a target audience in mind. You know what they are interested in, and what things may fulfill their needs. Plus, you’ve build up trust so that if you recommend something, they are likely to buy it.

However, you need to be careful not to abuse this trust. Only recommend products that are high quality that you know your readers will benefit from. Otherwise, you risk alienating your readers.

But what if you don’t have a blog? 

If you don’t have a blog, you have you still have a few options for making money online with niche products. You could build a small website reviewing different types of products. For example, you could review each major brand of lawnmowers. On the home page, you would put the most popular brands. Eventually, you may start making sales through your website.

Understanding What’s Popular Online To Resell 

If you are going to go this method, you need to choose the right product. You need to do some research and choose the right kind of product that people will buy over the Internet.

The lawnmower example from above probably would not be something you would buy but it is a tight niche that people would be interested in.

You may want to look at more general products that have a higher interest across the general population such as electronics, books, games, and other small shippable items.

Have a look at Amazon.

You can look on Amazon to get a good idea of things to promote. They have a list of the most popular items on there at any given time. 

Additionally consider Clickbank and PayDotCom for information products that are popular online. 

Your Personal Products Are Dangerous – Find Out Why (And What to Do)

If you’re a canny shopper then read on, because you might find some of the following information extremely useful.

That’s because canny shoppers are slowly beginning to realise that you have to be very careful when you choose your personal products in the supermarket or elsewhere. Unfortunately many of the personal products that so many of us consume every single day can be dangerous.

Yes, unfortunately it’s true. These products, including soaps, shampoos, deodorants, skin care products, cosmetics and much more can contain chemical ingredients which are, in many cases, known to be dangerous to our health and even to cause cancer.

Whilst this is not new there is a gradual ground swell of organisations and people who are attempting to publicise the fact that many brands of product should be avoided.

Unfortunately the problem stems from the fact that regulation in many countries is inadequate to force the companies that manufacture many of these products to use only known safe ingredients.

In many cases there is little or no official supervision of any of the ingredients which are used in personal products, and for this reason many of the ingredients used in our personal products are industrial chemicals which are known to cause health problems for people.

Whole organisations are dedicated to publicising this issue. Two such organisations are the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, which seeks to alert people to the risks involved in using many brands of cosmetics and other personal products, and the Cosmetic Safety Database which gives people a place to go to search both ingredients found in many products as well as the products themselves to find out the perceived level of risk in using the product or the ingredient.

I’ll give you one quick example. Many products include some form of fragrance. After all it doesn’t like to smell good? However unfortunately many fragrances are simply a combination of chemicals, many of which are known to be risky to your health.

These chemicals are rarely if ever listed, all you will ever see on the label is some generic terms such as “fragrance”. No one knows what chemicals make up the fragrance.

So if you’re a canny shopper it will pay you to do some research online to find out more about how to find safe cosmetics, safe skin care products and other safe products when you’re buying for yourself and your family. There are high quality and safe products available, but they’re not the big brand names.

Spend some time online, research and learn as much as you can, starting with the organisations that are listed above, and you can be an educated and canny consumer who knows what to buy and what to avoid when you’re looking to stock your bathroom cabinet.

5 Ways to Boost Personal Productivity

Are you always looking for a way to stay sharp, gain an edge and boost your personal productivity? If so you are in the good company of a large percentage of the rest of the population of the planet earth. With so much to do and the list seemingly growing every day we are all looking to increase our personal performance if for nothing more than to just make it to tomorrow.

Increasing productivity starts with getting the most out of what skill sets you already have. With that said here are 5 ways to find the productivity improvement you are looking for by ‘fine tuning’ what you already have.

Start Early

The saying ‘early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise’ is something many of us are familiar with and it holds much truth. Starting your day early gives you the opportunity to take advantage of your energy level while at it highest. Both the mind and body tend to wear down throughout the course of a day so it only makes sense to be sure to get the most out of both while they are at their optimal levels.

Develop a Fitness a Routine

Along the lines of increasing personal performance a fit body will possess more stamina and ‘staying’ power allowing you to stay ‘sharper for a longer period of time. It is also a well known fact that exercise supplies more oxygen to the brain allowing it to function more effectively. So here is what you get for exercising, sharper brains on a more fit body, what more could you ask for?

Also adopting a regular exercise routine will help you fall asleep quicker at night so that you can wake up early the next morning

‘List Out’ Your Day

Developing a daily list of priorities will help you maintain your focus on completing those tasks you judge as important. Generally just simply listing out your ‘day in advance’ will automatically help you prioritize the tasks on your list. As your ‘to do’ list is being developed you can make any necessary adjustments as to scheduling or changes in your priorities. This is a great way of ‘scheduling goals’ on a daily basis!

Strengthen Your Strengths

Any strength you may have can almost ALWAYS be improved upon! One of the best ways of increasing productivity is to simply get better at what you are already good at. Besides if you are good at something you usually also enjoy doing it therefore you will not mind spending more time on it to make improvements.

Work on Your Weaknesses

To get better we sometimes need to venture outside our ‘comfort zone’ which means taking on something we are not good at. By dedicating just a small amount of time each day to work on some of our weaknesses we will begin to see improvements in these areas over a short period of time. After a while we will get better and more comfortable with these ‘former weaknesses’ which will make it even easier to spend more time working on them.

If you are driven it is only natural and quite commendable to want to boost your current personal productivity. With an ever growing list of demands, finding ways to increase our personal performance is the best way to tackle these new challenges. Developing new talents and skills is one way to find the productivity improvement necessary to meet these challenges. Another more practical approach to increasing productivity however and possibly even easier is to further develop the skill sets we already have. The 5 ways to do this as discussed above focuses more on ways to strengthen or better utilize any current assets we have. In this way we can build upon that which we already know thereby making us better at that which we already do.
