Something I do get out of the house and go to the mall. I like to go window shopping and see what is hot. When I go to the mall I get lots of ideas. First I see seniors doing mall walking and they are wearing fanny packs. Then I see teens hanging out at the food court with these weird looking hoodie hats. I also notice that they all have their phones or iPods in their hands. And what cool cases? As I walk around the mall I come to a shoe store with a display of neon colored shoes. Etc. I write down what I see. It looks something like this... seniors (aging, health etc.) fanny packs niche shoes, neon tennis shoes... hoodie hats (hats with pockets) cell phone covers then I go home and start doing keyword research and see if their is a niche market to be found. Often I find awesome keywords that I never thought of before. Do you have any unique ways of coming up with niche markets?

Intriguing ideas, thanks. I usually sit at the table, come up with ideas, and then start plugging keywords into Jaaxy and Google. I like your approach and will try it sometime

Hi Wendy,thanks for sharing this. I basically don't have a set routine or approach, but just try to keep myself engaged with WA niches in mind, if that makes sense. Sometimes ideas for niches will come from the news articles on Sky or often in the papers (I try to read or skim read 4 papers a day - two local and two international).
The key though for me is to immediately capture the ideas as they come or they seem to disappear from my mind so quickly. This has even meant asking my wife when I am driving if she will kindly make a note for me - she has a photographic memory so she doesn't need paper like me!
Regards
Hudson

That is great that your wife has a photographic memory. I have to rely on a notepad.

Hey great Ideas, Thanks, I will try to put these to use. I sometimes watch what the younger generations are into. There is a lot of new ideas out there.

Wendy,

Yes. I watch certain TV channels on the week-ends and observe the ads. I have added three niches just by watching the TV commercials. I have even had some sales from these TV ads on the new websites.

I like your approach. I do not like to go to Malls. When I go to a store with my wife I look around for potential niches.

Continue your process. You will be very successful. Niches are all around us only if we look. As Jay would say: "You are looking outside of the box"
