    Perhaps the most tedious part of marketing online is researching. There is always so much information to cover in so little time. But one day after school, I ran into the mail man as I walked home and he handed me my family's mail. As I sorted through it, I found a PETA magazine. No one in my family is a vegetarian and I don't think anyone was thinking about converting, but I decided to flip through it anyway...


    All the information I every wanted to know about becoming Vegan was in that tiny little magazine. Actually, it was like a mini magazine because it only had like 8 pages. Anyway, I immediately had an sudden realization!

    Magazines and even little guides like this are all you need to fuel any campaign or website or article pack! Not only do they have tons of articles ready to go, they have advertisements! You don't even have to think about what to market. In the PETA mini-mag, there were advertisements for vegan recipe books, Vegan weight loss books, and so much more. All I had to do was choose how I wanted to present all this information and affiliate products online!

    Also, for example if you were looking through a Men's Health magazine or body building magazine, you could see related markets. Not only would these men's health magazine promote muscle building, they'd include:
    -men's clothing
    -cologne
    -pharmaceuticals
    -energy drinks
    -dress shoes
    -watches
    -suits
    -muscle pills
    -more, more, and more!

    So basically, my point is:
    If at loss for a niche or if you're too lazy to do research, pick up a $2.00 magazine or a $0.50 mini-mag and get everything you need (plus more) at your finger tips and ready to go!

    Good info.

    Actually you don't even need to spend $2 for a magazine. Go to Amazon magazine section or go to Magazines.com and check the cover of each magazine to get cool niche ideas.

    Hmm, you found out my little secret. What I do is spend a day at my local library which has about every magazine you could ever want. It gets me away from the computer for a day and I come out of there with tons of articles and ideas. I use the copy machine to copy articles and I can scan them in my computer for use on the web. Your right, ambrown, magazines are a gold mine for IM.

    On the same note, you can also go to bookstores where they sale second-hand or old books. Most of them have never made it to the online world.
    You can also browse google article archives (or something similar, too tired to look for the url...) to find some articles that can be over 100 years old sometimes...
