Many unsuccessful marketers waste time and space by creating sales copy that is filled with unnecessary jargon and will not be appealing to the targets.

Successful niche marketing is how well you know your target and how much you're going to expand. Before you do anything, rule number one in niche marketing is choose your market first, then design your product or service to suite.

Many online marketers put in the effort, spend time and invest money into creating or finding a good product / service they can sell online.
In addition, they will spend a good deal of money on marketing. But end up failing just because they didn't choose the right price for their product.
They either price the product on the high end or on the low end. It should be obvious that if you jack up the price of a product, people aren't going to waste their money on buying it. Likewise, should your product be priced too low, while you will generate sales you will not be making much money.
