Every Niche Has Competition

“Choose a niche, there will be less competition.” That’s the advice that because popular in the early 2000’s. It’s still popular today. The thing is, today there’s competition in every niche. I have multiple web businesses that I’ve been operating since the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Some of the are in what I call “mircro-niches.” Even so, I still have the company of a multitude of competitors.

If you know your topic, love your topic… or possibly even live breathe and eat your topic – that’s the niche for you regardless of the competition.

You see, although masses of websites have been build around every imaginable topic… the quality of the content is usually what separates the authority sites the “also-rans.” An “authority site” is just that. It’s a site that’s recognized in the niche as a source of quality, relevant, reliable information. Authority sites can also fall into the category of “reading for pleasure” sites.

A few years ago I found a handful of sites dedicated to sports game simulations. From the days of the boxed versions of Strat-O-Matic Baseball and Football to today’s  digital counterparts, games from the past and present are reviewed, discussed and sold.

Hobby sites draw traffic, build community and yes… can even make money, too.

Will you get rich off a hobby site? Who knows? That’s a question you’ll never be able to answer unless you try.

The Internet has leveled the playing field. You’ve probably already heard this 1001 times but it’s still true today. Big guys are losing their market to little upstarts in every niche you can think of. It’s absolutely amazing.  What’s keeping you from getting started?

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

Oh, and forget about Perl 6 – sure, it took some of the air out of the Perl 5 balloon for a little bit, but we’ve learned a few tricks from them and now have awesome things like function/method signatures, type constraints (though those could be better) and the awesome Moose OO toolkit/framework. This past year I’ve spent a lot of quality time at $work with Clojure and C++ and both of them make me miss using Moose very, very much. (Though Clojure has a lot going for it. Dare I even say, it sometimes feels almost perlish!)
