UPDATE: As of Jan 2011, this specific niche service is no longer available.
As we all know, keyword research is the most vital element of any successful online business. However, getting the keyword research right can either be a very tricky task and can take a long time.
Most beginners to Internet Marketing really struggle to get going due to difficulties with keyword research. Even internet marketing professionals can have days when their keyword research just isn’t working out.
I’ve certain had days, where I’ve spent literally hours hunting down an elusive keyword only to give up due to lack of time to keep drilling down and trying new combinations.
Like a lot of people, I started in affiliate marketing via Google Sniper and my first few attempts at sniper sites were complete failures because I didn’t really have a full grasp on proper keyword research.
With experience and knowledge, my keyword research became much better, but it could still take quite a chunk out of my day.
Keyword & Niche Research Service
Just recently, I discovered a fantastic new keyword research service that really is amazing value (and I’m not just talking that one up)
For just $7, you get given a buyer product niche with the following details:
- Full summary of the how the niche is chosen and what all the numbers mean.
- Niche Keyword.
- Full breakdown of search count, CPC, competing pages etc.
- Available domain names for the keyword.
- SEO analysis and summary of competition. Only niches that are easy to rank for are chosen.
- Links to related forums for posting regarding the niche.
- Links to Niche forums with good PR.
- Resources to use for your content.
- Summary of what type of approach to use on your site.
- List of affiliate products to promote.
All the niches identified have a very strong buyer intent, which means that you don’t have to go for a hardsell as the person is already looking to buy the product they are interested in. Typically, buyers like to find some information that reaffirms their decision and that’s where your niche site comes in and makes the conversion.
I initially tried out the service and ordered 5 niche reports as a way of testing out the quality of their information.
I was very impressed with all the reports, and one niche in particular had great figures with over global monthly search count of over 5000 and competing pages of just 13100. In addition, none of the sites in the top 10 for that keyword were fully optimised for the particular keyword, so it is quite easy to rank highly.
Don’t let the look of their website put you off. I know their design skills really suck, but if you request their demo report, you’ll see that their skills definitely are in the keyword/niche research area and not website design.
