When you get a business going you have to find out exactly what people are looking for if you and more importantly you have to find out exactly what they plan on spending there money on. Here are some ways to look at potential income that you can make in any industry for your online business opportunity.
One of the best things you can do is find out what people are paying for products or how much money they are putting into an industry. There are countless ways to find this out, but if you are search for an internet business to start then you need to consider going to the king of traffic, Google.
The represent most of the traffic online because of how successful their search engine is. Their success is light years ahead of MSN, Yahoo, and countless other search engines that are out there.
They are willing to offer first to the consumer and figure out what they want online, which is what they did when they put together their solid search engine and then appealed to other marketers. This has allowed for them to continue to grow because they are providing true value.
A lot of people now are able to market well through their Google Adwords program that gives marketers a chance to pay for ads as sponsored links on search results. These are the pages at the top and on the sides of the listings.
It is important to know what people are bidding because their bids will tell you how much money can be made in the industry and give you a good idea about competition. Most bidders want to at least break even so they will be willing to bid higher if they have higher profit margins with their back end.
So that will be a good sign for you if you are marketing similar products. I suggest that you use the Google Adwords Free Keyword Tool and find out what people are bidding for the 4-6 positions to give you an idea of what realistic and educated marketers are bidding for these terms and if it is at least $0.50 then you are probably in a good market. 1-3 bidders tend to be spending money without method and willing to blow income.
This will give you a good start at figuring out if this is an industry people put money in. No matter what the competition, if there is money to be made then you know it is a good route to go down as you dig for your niche.
