Paid advertising is great because once you’ve got ads and a funnel that works, you can turn on the switch anytime you’re willing to spend money to make money.
But content marketing is still important, and some would argue that in the long run it’s far more valuable than paid advertising.
In a traditional education you are taught there is ONE right answer.
Remember multiple choice tests? You were told that “C” was the right answer and “A” “B” and “D” were wrong.
But what if there is a “E”, an “F” or even several hundred different possibilities?
Nope. According to school, there is always ONE right answer.
It makes grading tests a whole lot easier, plus it trains people to follow orders from bosses who...
Anytime and every time you do anything in your business, write it down.
Found a new resource? A new shortcut? A new market? Had a brilliant idea? Or even a crazy idea? Write it all down.
If you try something and it works, write it down. If it didn’t work, write that down, too.
It doesn’t matter what your niche is. The point is to keep track of everything you do in your business.
Then when something pays off big, you have three options:
Here’s a simple little case study that you can employ in almost any niche.

What if your prospects aren’t buying from you? Assuming they’re seeing your offer, the reason they’re not buying is one of the following:
1: They don’t want what you’re offering. You will never sell these people.
Go find the people who WANT your product or find a product your people want.
2: They literally don’t have the money or credit to buy what you’re offering. They want it, and if they had the money, they would buy...

To like, retweet, and reply to posts under several hashtags, use a social media monitoring tool such as Hootsuite. Hashtagify can also help you find other hashtags that are related to the one you’re targeting.

My Top Secret* Niche List
*Granted, it’s no longer a secret now that I’ve shared it with you. Oh well, enjoy it!
Over the years I’ve been compiling this list of niches one by one. Some of them I added because they’re obviously hugely profitable. Others intrigued me. A few of them look pathetically small, and yet they are being used by people who earn 7 figures a year in these exact niches.
And all of them are worth looking into when choosing your next project.
I was on a conference call the other day for what you might call a hot new niche in selling.
