Every week I 'hack' open a hot niche. And this weeks niche is VERY hot.
I'll tell you why it's profitable, what you can do to dominate and how you can get started.
This week's niche is in the green energy sector focusing on solar power.
Green power is BIG business. Not only for enviromentalists but for people who just want to save some money on their over priced utility bills.
One of the big new trends is solar panels.
According to GTM Research they install a solar panel system every 4 minutes in the US compared to every 80 minutes in 2006 – so this is growing fast!
The solar industry is currently worth over $11.5 billion and growing year on year.
People want cheap and DIY solar projects for their homes and you're going to be the one to give it to them – whilst reaping in the profits of course!
Home owners have them attached to the roofs of the their houses or set up in their yards and can generate their own power and save money and in order to save money they are willing to spend it first.
I mentioned solar panels in an earlier post as being a profitable niche and now I'm going to tell you a bit more about this growing market.
