Money Digest: Niche Marketing Overview

Image
Image via Wikipedia No matter how big a company was and no matter how focused it was towards their desired market, there will still be segments of the population with unmet needs. These small portions of the population have unique needs but because of their size, main stream providers don’t bother to serve them. As a result, members of these groups usually become desperate buyers. They have the capability to buy but there’s no available product for them.

It is understandable why large providers do not enter their market. It is because it’s not practical for big companies to do so. However, for those desiring to earn cash from home, these small markets can be the opportunity. Marketing on the unique needs of a small group of hungry buyers is what is commonly referred to as niche marketing.

The Advantages

One of the advantages of niche marketing over mass or mainstream marketing is that because of its size, there are usually no or just small competition. Also since it was small, you don’t…

My Ideas on Blog Comments Moderation

I really appreciate when someone put comments on my blog. It’s a sign that I caught some interest from my visitors. It is also a way where my readers can freely suggest anything he wants with regards to the blog post. But I made a decision to moderate the comments. For the sake of those who are not familiar with blogging, comment moderation is an option where you can decide whether allow comments to appear immediately on your blog or wait for your approval. In my case I opt to choose the latter. I have reasons why I did so.

Avoiding Spam

Like most bloggers, I don’t like the idea that someone will put comments unrelated to the blog posts. Some people use blog commenting to promote their products. This is not entirely bad, for me it’s OK if someone will promote his or her product but I want it to be related to my blog posts.

Inappropriate Words

As the owner of the blog, I have full responsibility regarding what will appear on my website. I personally choose not to include comments that are…

Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Image
Image via Wikipedia Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is really cool! I've watched it and I laughed all the way from the beginning to end. Just like the previous Ice Age
movies, the adventure is full of fun. The movie will take you in the world of animals that behave like humans. Emotions...sarcasm...jokes...fun! Problem arises but was conquered by being together as friends. I guess, if we just imitate these "animals", the world would have been a better place.

Interesting things to look at:
-New friends (Buck, Scratte & Mommy Dinosaur and her babies)
-Ellie and Manfred will have their first baby.
-The world beneath the layers of ice.

I am an ever loyal fan of cartoon movies. Though far from reality, they convey lessons worthwhile to ponder at. Some of my favorites are the following:

1. Finding Nemo
-Learn a lot of lesson about parenthood...being balance regarding the freedom the children should have.


2. Ice Age series
- Friends are great assets...no matter who they are.…
