Never let it be said elBenbo doesn’t want to help the yutes of the world:
I’m a young ambitious guy (who isn’t?) who just finished a 2-year stint with Mindvalley as a copywriter / marketer, and I just moved back home to Seattle. I had a question and I’d love a small opinion… Since you have a better view, which niche do you feel is the most saturated with low-quality content and marketing — dating, health, or self-help? (These, fortunately, are my “passions.”) It just seems like there’s an oversaturation of IM’ers / copywrtiers in these niches specifically… and there’s a lot of bullsh!t being sold. I’m going to enter one of these niches, but I just wanted a more experienced perspective.
Personally, I prefer the oversaturated markets.
I like to wrestle aggressive, blood-thirsty monsters and beat them.
That said, here’s something to think about:
While speaking at Greg Gomez III’s “Fast Start Summit” last Labor Day, I got into a discussion with a couple of my droogies Geoff Stephen and “Email Players” subscriber Tyler Zahner about how friggin easy some of these people in the health niches have it.
Take the Fibromyalgia niche.
The lack of even basic direct response going on there is astonishing.
Just having an email list and mailing it can make someone a fortune in that.
Same with a lot of other focused health niches.
Anyway, something to chew on.
If you want the alphas and omegas of how to write emails that can clean up these niches check out my “Email Players” newsletter.
It ain’t cheap.
And, yes, it’s print.
You young’ns like everything digital, but I don’t do digital with it.
But, it works.
And, the info can be adapted to just about any medium.
