Written by Kevin Nunley


The great thing aboutrepparttar Internet is one person can come up with a great idea, put it online, and start earning money--all in a day. Granted, not all of us who try do it so quickly (my Internet biz took a year to earn our first dollar). But you have to admitrepparttar 117928 ability to userepparttar 117929 Internet--a major mass media--for almost no money, is a tremendous opportunity. A lot of variables go into business success, but following these 3 tips increase your chances for quick results.

Find a Niche That REALLY Wants What You Sell

One ofrepparttar 117930 quickest ways to make a business successful is to focus on a small group of people who REALLY want a product or service. Because they arenítrepparttar 117931 biggest group of customers,repparttar 117932 specialized product or service probably isnít going to be available at Walmart.

You may remember Corey Rudl's big two binder Internet promotion course. Atrepparttar 117933 time, there weren't many big and detailed guides torepparttar 117934 subject. Yet, a lot of people were looking for just what Corey had created. He earned $2.5 millionrepparttar 117935 first year.

Many ofrepparttar 117936 customers in your group may not know where they can get what they want. The Internet is an incredibly convenient way for people to search for what it is they want or need. When you show up, specializing in satisfying their demands and giving these customers exactly what theyíve had such a hard time finding, you get an enthusiastic group of long term buyers.

Let me give you an example. I recently spent a few days in Southwest Texas. Itís deep inrepparttar 117937 heart of ranch country. Men and boys still wear cowboy hats just as they have for 150 years. Itís notrepparttar 117938 largest group inrepparttar 117939 world, but these guys really WANT their cowboy hats.

Cory and Victoria noticed that it was hard to find a store that stocked many cowboy hats. Their solution was to open an entire store specializing in them. You can get any kind of hat, styled any way, for any sized head. For many customers their store is regarded as an answer to a prayer. "This isrepparttar 117940 first time in 25 years that Iíve worn a hat that fits my head right," one customer told me.

Next, Cory and Victoria put their store onrepparttar 117941 Internet. What better way to reach a narrow group of customers, spread out overrepparttar 117942 world, who REALLY want their product.

Spend a Little Money for Your Own Website. Affiliate sites and free sites are fine, but you will need to create your own individual space online to makerepparttar 117943 big bucks.
