by : Per Strandberg

Most get it wrong when they start an e-business! They start building a business on the web by picking the wrong market.

Many start by giving advice on how to start a home business or by marketing Internet marketing information. This is the wrong way to do it!

Or even worse, become trapped by the many business opportunity programs that are out there. Many of them are nothing more than pyramid scams in disguise.

Why do so many try to market Internet marketing products online? One reason is that this is a subject that people get interested in and they soon see themselves as experts in this field.

You find another reason when you look and examine Internet marketing materials. What have most of the marketing of these products in common?

The answer is that they are marketed by slick copywriters. The marketers want to promote their own products, so they naturally promote these products on their websites, newsletters and where ever they can.

Of course, they don’t tell you the truth! The harsh truth is that if you are a beginner in web business and start by promoting web marketing products, you will fail.

To start with, you don’t have the right experience and you don’t have the traffic that you need.

You are much better off, if you focus on web markets that are not as saturated by competitors as in the internet marketing field. One secret to successful Internet business is by find niche markets where people are spending money and the markets are not saturated.

So how do you find suitable web markets that is right for you? That will depend on how you plan to market. Do you plan to build an information theme site, mini sites, work with Pay-Per-Click marketing or do you plan to make a product to sell on the Internet?

If you target information theme sites or mini sites, then you want to find web niches with little competition and you also want to identify web niches where the bid values on pay-per-click are relative high.

If you use Pay-Per-Click promotion you might want to find niches with low Pay-Per-Click bid values and a lot of traffic.

And if you want to try to a market product you have produced, you want to make sure that there is a market for the product. You also want to know if there is a need for the product and that people are spending money on products in this Internet market.

A final key point is to find niche markets that you have an interested in or at least have some knowledge in. It is much easier to work in a niche that you are interested in than in a niche that have no interest in at all.
