If you want to work from home, it's important to select a niche that you are passionate about. Working in any niche can be frustrating when you dislike what you are doing. But when have passion for what you are doing, you have more energy and drive to get to work on building your business.

So, what are your passions? Imagine if you woke up tomorrow and found out that you won millions of dollars in the lottery. What would you like to spend your life doing.

Would you spend it traveling and exploring new cities? Would you spend more time on a hobby that you have? What do you do in your spare time right now?

Taking a moment to examine what you enjoy doing will help you choose which niche is the perfect fit for you. Once you choose your niche, what do you do then?

Begin by reading and researching everything about that niche. Completely engulf yourself in that niche. Sign up for every related email list that you can. It really pays off to know the current topics and events in your niche.

Another great way to find out about your niche is to see if anyone has written a book about it. I'd go to Amazon and look at the inside covers of e-books and check out the reviews. What you want to look for are the 2 and 3 star reviews.

These 2 and 3 star reviews will be more helpful to you than the 4 and 5 star reviews because the lesser stared reviews will comment on what they thought was missing from the book. Or what they thought would have made the book better. This is perfect information for what people are looking for in that niche. All you have to do is include those missing ideas in an article or even an e-book.

Give people what they are looking for and you'll have no problem getting customers.

Fantastic info and great advice.

Great Advice... Thank you.

Thanks for posting. Good ideas on an important topic that stumps a lot of people getting started.

Good tips ...Thanks!

Is it possible to just purely promote WA and use this as an income creating site?

It is possible but in my opinion unlikely. How long do you think it would take you to get 500 people signed up as premium members? In less than a year only 5% of those people would still be paying the premium monthly membership. It is just a fact of all Internet businesses that only about 5% will make any sustainable income.

I went to your profile page. Ever thought about writing an e-book telling people how to build a small home like the micro-mini homes that are the in-thing right now? Selling information is where the good money is. If you have an e-book or could create blueprints on designing a small house, people will pay for that kind of information. If it were me, I would build a sales funnel around that concept. I think you could really set yourself up well.

What has this to do with my comment above? It is something totally different then what I am asking.
If you want to build or promote mini houses, that is fine and maybe I could give you some tips here. I used to be a renovation contractor for 37 years but that is not what I asked above, right?
You obviously didn't follow the whole story of my question.
Sorry but I can't see the benefit other then to start another niche, which is what I wanted to get away from!

That 2-3 star reviews is an interesting point. Thanks for this tip!

Awesome tips!

Your dead on!
