My Niche is Slow this Time of Year

By Ian Fernando

This week is is that gobble season. Happy early Thanksgiving if I do not say it this Thursday. But this time of year is the time when I chose a niche in the physical field. Black Friday is a great day to get lots of traffics and hits to a physical website (e commerce). There will be lines of people lining up at entrances and users arguing with the person checking them out.

This time of year gets very hectic and I think it is a good sign, because it is a time where most e commerce sites should be making a good amount of money. This time of year I usually switch my needs to ebay, I made a good handful on ebay last year and hoping to surpass it this year. I also went ahead and bought Build a Niche Store, this script uses eBays feeds to deliver goods to a website.

But before BANs, I was toying around with Mark's Amazon eBay YouTube Mashable Script. This I think is a really good script, just the fact there is web 2.0 touch to you, the YouTube part. It displays Amazon and eBay listing, according to a keyword, and pulls the related items on screen! The only problem is the layout is very weak, so for about a month I have been playing around with it and trying to manipulate and create nice layout from it. In the end it was taking a lot of my time and I decided to just buy Build a Niche Store.Also this is the time of year where my website does not do too well, traffic drops, conversions suck, nothing happens. This is because this time of year the holidays are coming up and the internet does not appear to be on everyone's lists. Everyone is out, especially at the end of this week, buying and purchasing gifts for their loved ones. I tend to go even harder with my affiliate marketing and ebay, since this is a great time to make some money online.

PS. I will be toying some more with Mark's script, but until then here is a video of what I just said above.
