A Niche Can Make You Rich: A Proven Entrepreneur’s Internet Marketing Strategy

Posted on 05 Dec 2012 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments | Tags

Niches are a perfect solution for the entrepreneur combining it with Internet marketing. What is Niche Marketing and why does it have outstanding long-term potential? A Niche is a small neglected corner of a larger Internet market the entrepreneur can exploit. The successful entrepreneur knows that Internet marketing to a niche audience creates the perfect marriage. Long-term potential comes from loyal customers finally finding answers to problems that plague them but mass marketers ignore. Large corporations are not interested in serving a niche that only adds $2,000 – $15,000 a month to their profits. But an entrepreneur makes a handsome profit by zealously delivering value to the niche through internet marketing.  Essentially, while everyone is fighting over a particular fish, while at the same time there could be a huge amount of other fish that none of your competitors are seeing.

Entrepreneurial Passion An entrepreneur must have passion for the niche that inspires energy to make it all happen. Consider skills, hobbies, or products you know, and find interesting. An entrepreneur with a passion for a niche product but lacking expertise spends time researching it. The successful entrepreneur follows the time-proven Internet marketing formula of solving other people’s problems. The majority of the more than 62 billion monthly Internet searches involve people looking for solutions to problems. The Entrepreneur serves niches by uncovering problems people are looking to solve and deploying an Internet marketing strategy providing answers. You want to become the internet marketing expert these people turn to.

Thanks to E-Books, Book Publishers Find Flat Is The New Up

Posted on 03 Apr 2012 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments

In a recent article by Laura Hazard Owen,  Large book publishers’ most recent earnings reports reflect a new normal: Revenues are roughly flat, but profits are up—in large part due to e-books.

In the 2011 Bertelsmann annual report released this week, Random House said it has nearly 40,000 titles available as e-books worldwide, and while revenues were down for the year, “operating EBIT was higher year on year, especially in the United States. This rise was helped by continued cost-cutting measures and lower return rates in North America and the United Kingdom due to increased e-book sales.”

Found an article from Amanda Natividad that compares the Kindle, Nook, Kobo and Sony eReaders for you.  This is good to know but even better as we get close to the holidays!  Any of these on your wish list?

E-Readers have come a long way, some are touchscreens, some are keyboards, some are in color and some are mimicking the ink of an actual book (E ink pearl).  They are compact, all about 6″ or 7″ and less than 1/2 inch thick.  The simple E-Readers are around $100 to $150 and the more deluxe can go all the way up to $400.

Here is the tenth installment I found on book tours, from a company that is closing their doors soon, so I thought I would pass it on to you guys!  There is a lot of different ways to use social media for your promotions and launches including your book tour.  I like how Kevin approaches this subject, he talks about knowing your target market and using the right tools for it.  When you think about your audience think about them in all their dimensions, paint a 3D picture of them.  What age/sex/gender are they?  Where do they like to hang out?  What is their lifestyle like?  Knowing this will help you reach them more efficiently.
