    hi;
    thank you very much for the informatin! its was really good!
    I wanna ask for your opinion about the selling products,
    Its look a little bit like not that profitibale, at click bank there is just 3 product with low gravity and at amazon there is products but they cheap and not to much reviews, in your opinion, you think that it possible to make money in this niche for the long term?

    again, thank you so much!!

    • Well there's more than 87,000 searches per month in this niche.

      While there doesn't seem to be too many reviews on Amazon, you'll still be likely to make commissions as Amazon is one of the biggest retailer that'll pay for any item sold that you refer.

      It is still growing, and there's a ton of people who do their own gardening at home.

      So don't forget you can always get involved with gardening as well as it's a sub-niche here.

      Hope that helps
