    Currently I'm re-selling facebook likes, twitter followers, youtube views and others social media fans on SEOClerks. I'm exclusively targeting a particular niche mostly through my facebook fan page and twitter account to drive traffic to my gigs (though am currently widening my efforts to do general blog and forum posting and yahoo answers). Have a few thousand very interactive and engaged followers who I provide value to in the form of useful information and support for what they do. I don't have a website of any sorts yet as I don't have money at the moment for the hosting and domain. Even though my followers are very engaged and increasing by the day they don't buy much from me, have made around 8 sales in total so far in 3 weeks and made just a tiny profit. I know I haven't been up and running very long but I'm not sure I'm ever going to make decent money by focusing solely on this niche. There's nothing to say that everyone in this niche wants to buy fb fans, twit followers etc, maybe not as many as I thought do.

    My dilemma is to continue focusing on this niche, build a website and email list, continue offering them value and interacting with them and hope that when I get more followers my sales will increase OR stop focusing on such a specific niche and just target people in general who want to buy fb fans, twit follower etc and build sites, lists and so on for that.

    So stick with the very targeted niche or broaden my horizons? Tricky question I know but any advice?

    If you are only up a few weeks and you are already making sales then you are doing something right. Unfortunately there's a lot more people selling likes and followers than there used to be so yes you should be looking to broaden your services constantly..If you want to pm me a bit more detail about your Facebook page, your followers , what services you are currently providing, what you are charging and profit margins I can try to give you some better advice.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. Based on the amount of tweets and re-tweets I get for all my posts and ads, the interaction I have with my followers and the number of people that have viewed my gigs on SEOClerks I feel I should have more sales. I'm thinking maybe this niche just aren't interested in buying fake fans and I really thought they would be.

    I'm going to send you a PM. Thanks.
