Where Are People Making Money Right Now?

Posted on 22nd February, 2007

There’s a lot of newbies who think that the only way to make money online is to get involve in Internet marketing and teach others how to make money.

If they themselves can’t make money, there must be something wrong with the path they have chosen in their money making journey.

Here’s a problem, there’s just too much competition in the Internet marketing niche and you need to be real good or offer something different in order for you to stand out from the rest.

I am no guru but I do have some experience in making money outside of the Internet marketing niches and I know it’s not easy to make money from the Internet Marketing niche.

There’s a long list of other niches that people can take advantage of and are profitable right now besides the make money online niche.

To make money from these niches, the fundamental steps are all similar.

  • Research and target a niche
  • Find a profitable affiliate programs (or sell your own products)
  • Create targeted website to sell/ presell your products or services
  • Use AdWords to attract targeted visitors instantly

Of course there are many variations one can think of but if you master the basics above, there’s just NO way you can fail.

Here’s just a few of the niches you can dive into. You can read the rest of the list here.

update: Perhaps some newbies find this post a little confusing as you can see from the comment section below. This post has nothing to do with blogging. It’s about realigning you focus from the over crowded ‘Internet marketing’ niche to something that may have never crossed your mind.

I personally find it easier to make say USD5000 per month from a niche totally unrelated to the Internet marketing niche.

    you’re right, there are way to many making money on the internet inches and equally as many seo niches. there are so many other things to talk about.

  • Avanzaweb says:

    I think is better find your own niches

  • mrBadak says:

    ben, gaman is right. i’m talking about ‘making money’ niche – i don’t think it’s a niche anymore. there are so many people marketing these products.

    newbies should look into other niches like promoting matresses for those with sensitive bones – now that looks more like a niche hehe.

    im not giving up on adsense either, im making few dollars eventhough im sleeping or watching tv but it’s fluctuating quite drastically.

    im geared more into diversifying while having a main source of stable and reliable income. i’ll be blogging about this soon 😛

  • bengodomon says:

    2 payperpost?
    3 i wouldnt give up on adsense just yet. if amit agarwal can do it…….

    • Gaman says:


      He meant the competition in the Internet marketing niche which is tougher than other niches.

      Nobody is giving up on AdSense here 🙂

  • mrBadak says:

    you’re right gaman, almost everyone claim to be a guru and want to teach you how to make money.. duh.. and it all points to the same ebook from CB that they want you to buy once you’re on their list.

    im starting to get into affiliate marketing this year.. scott (death of adsense) made me realise that i cannot depend on adsense to make a stable and recurring income.

    i love you posts man! keep it up.

    I view on your website, i got useful information on your article andthose are very nice and i have some useful information related to the catagory,to seek the truth about the Internet Marketing. While some more seasoned marketers are immune to the hype and con merchants,
    newbies in particualr are frequently lead astray by clever marketing tactics…and buy worthlessinformation.

    internet marketing, newbies

  • pinolobu says:

    Is “targeted website” = landing page?

  • non-blogger says:

    • Gaman says:
