    I have been doing a good amount of research and scanning through this forum with the search button and it has

    got to the point to where i have taken in so much information it is a bit overwhelming and i don't know where to start.

    If someone could help me out with finding a decent niche and get me on track with where to start then i will even help invest

    in some software that can help them with their money journey also. I would greatly appreciate it if someone even takes the time to read this

    post. Sorry if the double spacing of my post makes it a bad read but i thought it might be easier on the eyes. Help Please!

    If you need a niche visit amazon and browse some products and find stuff you like. Ex. You like Nail Clippers, research the niche of nail care and if it's profitable go for it.

    I appreciate you taking the time to help! I understand nobody is going to just flat out give me a niche and i have ideas on someone i just have to get use to using the Keyword Planner and tools to get a good eye at finding good ones to use. After i get the niche and domain and website as far as content do i just get that from like "Reviews" and ect. that i found on my product. So i don't even have to be like an expert on what i pick?

    I've been learning a lot just by googling longtails and reiterating information related to a topic in my own words. Just pick something you wouldn't be bored out of your mind learning about along the way

    I have an idea of a niche that i won't be bored with and i would be able to provide high quality content for the website and i searched the keywords with the "Google Keyword Planner" and the almost all the keywords come back as Low Competition. What would be a decent number of Views per month with low competition that i would look for?

    Depends on the niche. Make sure to take into account the CPC.

    Are you talking about Advertiser Competition? If so you want it to be High if you want to monetize with Adsense.

    In "Keyword Planner" the suggested Bid Price is that referring to the "CPC" or is that different. I am sorry for being such a beginner i am just trying to make my first journey as smooth as possible.

    The forum is overwhelming and the best thing to do when you start is go to the money making section and pick one idea
    and think on it about how you want to execute it and then concentrate on that one thing until you make money.

    $150-200 is not a lot of money at all. Considering the fact that it sounds like this is your first foray into IM, you should keep it cuz otherwise there is a very high chance that you can kiss that money goodbye. You are better off taking it slow.

    What I suggest is you look for free ways to get traffic to a site you own and monetize with a CPM network like adsense. Don't buy traffic. Get it for free from social networks like tumblr or facebook, etc.

    I can make $100-200 in a day just off a Video Game. I have the money to invest and i can do Photoshop and make the logos and banners and i have had a few websites up before when i was doing services before. But yes learning with the backlinks and SEO i'm a bit new. And i have more money to invest thats just what i made from 2days.

    If that is recurring money then you have plenty to get started with hosting, domain name and pay someone to
    write you some high quality English articles. Sign up to ahrefs to check your competition and your own websites.

    Hi OP,

    Don't be afraid to make mistakes! I've done my fair share in losing '000s in web-creation and currently on my way to profiting.

    As for your concern in niche selection, I reckon you to purchase a keyword list from BST Thread and enjoy searching for favorable ones. Simply put, you can utilize Google Keyword Planner in identifying profitable keywords in terms of CPC & Ctr rates. Lastly, try to search low competition keywords and penetrate swiftly.

    Tip: Learn to read on SEO tactics and Official News release from Matt Cutts :D darn helpful

    All The best OP,
    Stay Persistent,
    Commoner
