By now, there are tons of talk about making money online. There are many sites that offer you the opportunity to make an income. Many of these sites offer it through passive residual income by way of revenue sharing. Then many of the revenue sharing sites will have you earn through affiliate programs like google adsense.
So you try it and you find that it is not quite as simple as you thought. Perhaps you put out article after article or built blogs and websites which have not worked for you the way you wanted to. This is the story of many people who have tried making money online, a lot of them give up on that as well. A lot of these people have chosen a niche which turned out to be either not so marketable or highly competitive or "full" for them to make any significant product.
There is a niche that is highly marketable. It is the self improvement niche. It took me by surprise because I thought that with the condition of the economy, more people would be concerned with making money. Now I am big on self improvement. I believe self improvement is not only just a big part of life, but it is life. If you are not growing in any way, then you are not living. I've published articles about web hosting and then I've published an article in the category of self improvement / personal growth and I've witnesses my self improvement article gain seemingly infinite amount of views while my web hosting article remained dead. (less than five views in over a month) That gave me a clue right there. I don't know why, but I didn't figure people would be that much into self improvement in these days.
I wrote more on self improvement and even submitted to sites where I have my adsense enabled and I've seen my click value rise very high. I was thrilled. I've stumbled on a niche where not only I can make money, but I can contribute to the improvement of the quality of life for others. That is the ideal niche for me.
If you are new to internet marketing and you are looking for a profitable business, self improvement is a great niche you can work in.
