40 min video on niche research

This video has been long over due. So I’ve been planning on making this vid for the last week or so and I really wanted to get it done yesterday before I went off to bed.  Well sure enough I was busy all day yesterday.  So… I ended up making this vid at 1am.  Now for most affiliate marketers thats no big deal.  But for me it is… I usually go to bed pretty early so I was pretty tired towards the end of the vid. Anyways… Enjoy!

Great video, I’ve never used Shopping.com but definitely use Insights on a daily basis for research. This video is going to help a lot of people with niche/keyword research. Good work.

This is an awesome video on niche research. This is one step I struggle with no more!

Thanks a ton!
This is definitely a gem. :-)

Of all, the niche research I found it to be the toughest. I just can’t get around it.
Didn’t heard of Shopping.com before. :)

Kudos to you for burning the post midnight oil to educate us. This is well worth viewing folks, ENJOY!!!

Wow, this looks like a great video. Thanks so much for going to the trouble of making it and posting to educate others. I will definitely watch the full forty minutes (only got through the beginning) when I have time. Cheers!

Great video, I totally did not know about shopping.com, I’m going to add this to my research toolbox. Just as good as ebay. Quick question, when doing research what search type do you rely on, broad or phrase match?


Very nice video. Its really helps in keyword research. Thanks for sharing it.

Good video, injected a bunch of new ideas into my brain that might be useful in the future.

how well do you find these ‘generic’ type of keywords will convert?

what % of clicks will turn into sales?

Good video. Really helped me learn how to do better keyword research.

Kris, don’t you use semrush? I used sktool, keywordtool but never shopping.com. I have to see it throughly one more time. It’s quite a long one but definately worth seeing. Thanks!

Hey Kris, really good video, I enjoyed viewing it, and I also got alot of take anyways, one of the biggest ones was founding out about “Male Yeast Infections” as a 500 search point. And I also learned about some new places of where to do keyword research, just to give an example, I actually didn’t know about Google Insight, but I used Google trends in the past. I also liked the time range aspect of Google Insight.

Till then,

Really enjoyed the video. Ton of good info. Thanks again.

p.s. I’m going to built my legos site this week. Just a little competition for you. I’m a newbie so don’t get to worried about it.

September 6, 2009


Great video with some useful tactics that I can’t wait to put into action. Still developing my research techniques so it has been most helpful in a vital area of my business.

Will probably link to it in a later article on my blog.


September 6, 2009

Kris, gr8 stuff … like how u do keyword research by 1st looking at the trends, then building out a site.

I would love to see u do it from scratch, all in one shot; that is:

1. keyword research
2. find the offer, study the competitors
3. build out the site
4. advertise using the best methods
5. tracking
6. come back 1 week later to see results $$$

That is my wish, that you do this. Most Internet Marketers don’t show their FULL Process in one shot and I would like if u can do this for your clients.

Thanks for a great video on keyword research.

Hey Kris you have made it obvious that you know what you speak about and find it intriguing that you are able to convey it with such passion and enthusiasm. I see that if i was going to learn stuff like this, you would be the one to choose to be a guide.

Great demonstration, thanks!

There are valuable lessons to be learned here. The number one lesson is giving yourself time to build out your website for the available traffic of that particular season. Another lesson is experimenting! Look at Kris go! He’s playing around with the tools and testing things! If you’re serious about MARKETING… this is what you have to do! Spend the time with these tools researching your niche keywords and figuring out the trends.
