Niche web sites do not have to be small.

Written by Ed Charkow

I've been marketing for a long time now and I have seen a disturbing trend with niche web sites. Many e-books and so called experts are advocating that you should have a mini-site to promote your affiliate products or digital delivery goods.

Well, that is a great idea if you never expect to have a search engine find your site, or a reason for visitors to ever return. I mean if I wanted to read ads all day I would just read a magazine. I want fresh content and valuable services for my time.

I also want my browsing time to be a little more effective. By that I would visit your site probably 20 times this year if you provided merepparttar services I needed.

I'm going to give you an example of a great niche site that you can turn around a create today. Are you familiar with Xara? Xara provides several web development and design tools. I have found their products to be a great help in my design and development niche sites.

Offrepparttar 135424 bat,repparttar 135425 important thing is I know a lot about Xara. I own their products and use them allrepparttar 135426 time. In other words I haverepparttar 135427 makings of a great content driven, USEFUL website.

Since I am familiar withrepparttar 135428 products I can write real reviews, real tips, and make informed suggestions.
