  1. How might I go about finding out if a niche has the potential to be profitable or not? 

    I have lots of interests and ideas, but narrowing them down based on the potential numbers would be awesome for me. I have a hard time making moves until I know it will be worth my time or not; a little self-destructive I know, but I have taken chances in life that did not end well so having a little security blanket of information about the potential of a niche is necessary for me to decide on anything

From my understanding of the way Niches work, one has to be passionate about what they are marketing out to the public, in that way you can give value to the need of the customer. Therefore, when they see value in the content of your offer, you will get traffic, and the more traffic to your website, then the better you will see a monetary gain.

So, online is our best alternative.
