    Online is slowing down a bit, could this be due to the current economy crisis the USA is having right now?

    Are "Making Money Online" courses selling good right now as Americans are looking for other ways to make money?

    I can't say for sure but I would think so. There are a lot of people with redundancy payments and lots of spare time on their hands looking for something to do.

    Yeh i think this is a good opportunity to target certain niche markets. All i had to do was think about what products/services/advice people would look for in a recession? People get more desperate in tough times and it's a marketer's dream in some way because prospects are willing to take action. Some say that with economy going down marketers wont sell much, I totally disagree I've been targetting certain niches that are doing great and i think it's due to recession.

    I totally agree.

    Maybe the economy will take down certain niches online but not all of them.

    I think the fear this economy has put in people has everyone looking for a door out and they all see the internet as that door. I think theres TONS of business going down online, probably more than before. That is just my personal experience.
