Another excellent example of fulfilling a unmet need comes from Steve Loyola from BestWebBuys.com. Steve designed a site that enabled people looking to buy books and music CD's online to search for a title of a book and then display allrepparttar online stores that sell that book listing them in order of least expensive to most expensive.

Online book and music stores are not new torepparttar 117888 web but Steve saw a need with in a niche that was not being met...so he met it. Steve figured out a way to meet this need and make money from it by signing up as an affiliate withrepparttar 117889 sites he lists. He simply provides a search tool to help people findrepparttar 117890 best deal and by doing so his site has now become more popular than some of them he lists.

I want to share with you one last example that you may find helpful when it comes to developing your own business online. Bob Bingham and Jeff Swearingen saw a need in a highly competitive market that was not being met. These two entrepreneurs designed TheGift.com to be a benefit torepparttar 117891 gift buyer by helping them chooserepparttar 117892 right gift.

Giving a gift is a very personal thing and it can be somewhat frustrating so Jeff and Bob made this process much easier by designing their site in a way that actually assistsrepparttar 117893 gift buyer. You can easily select a gift by using their handy GiftFinder tool, or shop by department, relationship or occasion.

I asked Jeff his thoughts as to why his site has become so popular, he simply replied.

"It's an unmet need. Most e-commerce sites are like a department store, which is a lousy way to select and send a gift".

When developing your business online you might want to ask yourself if you are meetingrepparttar 117894 needs of those who are visiting your site. You may not berepparttar 117895 first one to meet this need but you may be able to do it better than anyone else.
