Hi all. I am new to the internet marketing field and am still in the research stages. My understanding so far for a long term working model; find a profitable niche market. do keyword research (for the correct content and optimization) find content on this niche market. start a blog or website with niche market content. find products for this market, and have link to affiliate sites to sell these products. get traffic. My plan is to take this model step by step and to learn each step as I go along. My questions; Am I on the right tract? Where should I expand or change? I have been sitting now for nearly 2 week, day and night, to find my profitable niche market (in the travel field), with no success so far. I mainly use Googles free keyword tool. But I need help and advise please. How do I find my niche? How exactly do one determine a niche. What criteria are used to identify a niche? My main interest in live is travel and spiritual issues. Please help!!!
