I got a little discouraged a few months ago. I saw these tough(er) economic times coming and did very little marketing. I wondered if it wouldn't be very hard to try to find any kind of new niche under the circumstances. I noticed however, that some of my campaigns started getting sales that had been doing very poorly. some of these involved work-at-home or make money online programs. That makes sense - with people being laid-off left and right it makes sense that a lot more people would be looking for alternative income sources. I started looking around the web to see if I could get some ideas on what to market during this downturn and I think I got some good ideas/suggestions from some very successful online marketers... 1. People are looking for distractions to take their minds off tough times - video games, fantasy football, movie downloads, etc. 2. home foreclosures have spawned an online foreclosure profits ebook niche. 3. People are looking for ways to save on gas, the electric bill, food and other monthly expenses... 4. I saw an article recently that said a lot of people are now buying 'survival food' (I guess some people are really worried). What other ideas, advice or niches for hard times come to mind? Any forum members have ideas or suggestions?
