Hello Fellow Entrepreneur!
Often we get stuck on what to write about on our blogs. If you are just starting out, you may be stuck on what niche to pursue. No worries.
Listed are 7 places that you frequent that are great for finding ideas.
When first starting out, you need a product or service to promote.
Most experts say to
find a product or service in a market that you have an interest in or are passionate about.
While this is not required, it definitely helps.
For example, I sell electronic and other learning toys for kids on http://bestkidscameras.com/. Smart watches for kids are very hot items. But at the time, when I decided to promote them, I had never actually touched or played with one.
I only promote items that are highly recommended. So, it took me an extra long time to research the market to learn all about smart watches for kids.
Remember deciding what to promote is the easier part. Most of your efforts will be in promoting the product or service.
This is NOT to say that you can not be profitable in an area that you know nothing about. That’s a horrible sentence, but you know what I mean. It just takes longer to research a market that you are unfamiliar with. Realize this up front.

1) Look within yourself.
What are your hobbies, interests, passions,or experiences? Do you enjoy cooking, collecting stamps, or gardening.
Have you overcome any personal ordeal? Have you lost weight or quit a habit?
2) Go To the Grocery Store.
Have you noticed any new shops in the area. I remember when a Cartridge World opened in the strip center where my favorite grocery store resides. Hmm.
People must be buying a lot of printer cartridges. That must also mean people are buying a lot of printers. 2 ideas and I have not even made it inside the grocery store yet!
Oh, I just had a thought. You need printer paper…
3) Talk on the phone to friends. People call with news.
The next time that you are on the phone, listen to what the caller is talking about. The topic could be a potential
gold mine for you.
4) Go to your local bookstore and look in the magazine section.
If there a magazine on the subject, it is a proven market with proven products to promote.
