Thumbs up Donít Sell To Every Person - Sell To Someone Loads Of TIMES!

Donít Sell to Every Person - Sell to Someone Loads of TIMES!

Read the title few time until you understand of what I mean.

Only sell something to every person if you have no doubt it will be fruitful.

Look at it this way Ė Cereal companies donít sell to everyone?

Cereal companies market to certain niches Ė It much easier to sell that way, and your efforts won't be thinly spread.

Rather then shouting out to everybody to make a sale, itís better to talk directly to someone to have a much more likely sale.

I used to think how the hell I am going to make money by selling in a small niche.

How is a product for 'Golfers Over 50' going to make us more money
than a product that appeals to everyone?

After tripping over few times and further educating myself that I realised that the idea is to sell into multiple niches.

If you tried to yell to everyone, that you have a product, a small number of will pay attention, a few will buy.

Letís say I spoke to 5 people - had made a product specifically for them. I can confidentially say all will buy, or the very least 4 of them. Basically it is so much easier to sell it to a niche.

Therefore, 4 out of 5 is pretty good wouldn't you say?

So why not sell into multiple niches, and sell really well, in small markets.

I have many small websites that sell to small niches.

Low competition = fast success
