    Hi,
    I have a little problem with two websites I created recently.
    1. Experimental Voip that uses WebRTC, I was wondering if it is possible to monetize it? I have even created an android app for that, and working on IOS.
    2. Baby niche website, I am stuck in content and strategies to monetize, I signed up for amazon but stuck on content.
    My main problem is that I am not finishing anything at 100% due to a lot of ideas..
    Appreciate your advices.

    Hey,

    You need to....

    1) Do thorough, extensive, exhaustive keyword research before starting a site. Keyword research includes market research, checking amazon and ebay to see what's selling or what's ranking that's not ranking on Google.... or would be easy to rank and something you wanna devote your time into.

    Copywriters say "find a starving crowd first". Which is true. But these days you need to engineer or stage a type of military coup. Where you make a map of different land (dozens-hundreds of niches), resources, who your enemies are, how they're fighting, which are most vulnerable, listing out keywords, searches a month, ranking TLDs, dig through links, how they're driving most their traffic, PBNs, comments, facebook, groups, forums, YT, media buys, etc. You also need to understand how good your top competitor is at what they do. Which comes through experience & taking action on your own or asking more experienced marketers. When you've launched enough projects and successfully monetized a few dozen or hundred niches... you can size up competition much faster and identify market gaps..... little oil wells that sit between the lines.... battles you can win.

    2) More on strategy. Sometimes I use photoshop to draw / type up a custom S.W.O.T analysis. Strengths, weakness, opportunities, threats. This is *after I've picked out 10-20 niches from my seedlist. That list already has lots of information. So when I research niches I rarely have to go online. I just cherry pick from my seedlist, then research more deeply till I have 5 good niches. Then I'll run a quick S.W.O.T to remove and replace niches until I have 5 niches I know I can dominate IF I work hard enough.

    I never start a site until I know that for a fact. "I can dominate all 5 of these niches IF I play my turtle-chess war strategy."

    3) Data is a boring topic on here. But if you ever succeed at marketing long term you're gonna notice a trend. Which is that a lot of old, experienced marketers.... respect data. They're experts at data mining and engineering. Go on a date with data. A very long date. Get to know her. Be patient. She will bore you sens less. But her parents are billionaires. Look at Google the leading data miners in the world. Sergey knew almost 2 decades ago how valuable data mining was. Keyword research itself is a form of data mining.

    The key to success is creating order out of the chaotic interwebz. Taking tools and resources that already exist (google keyword planner, shared group buys for ahrefs & majestic), adding a few manual twists, overtime many marketers outsource bots of their own to help in a variety of tasks, IMacros can be set up to mine and export data or automate repetitive tasks.

    Let me get back on topic. I don't know shit about your #1 question. And #2, I don't like the baby niche same way I don't like the doggy niche. I remember going through that niche and many subniches a couple years ago. And I don't remember what turned me off I think it was jmy natural prejudice and understanding of how many eyes are on baby related niches. Then also watching shark tank and seeing all the horrible baby ideas and how many people were promoting them. It's the same with dogs & cats. Anything related to babies, cats, dogs, fitness (there's many) gets scratched off my list and immediately labeled as a "lazy" niche. Where 98% of the people targeting these niches have no idea what they're doing... and worst of all there's no real "middle class"... it's all these poor lazy bastards competing against Timothy Ferris type fuckers.

    This may be hard to understand but look for niches with a booming middle class. And if you need examples I can find you some (have to workout right now).

    Thanks for this very rich answer, does that mean it is too late to adapt the current websites to the niche market. I did a small keyword research at the beginning and read some of the posts about monetization using amazon and no need to target SEO for some processes.
