Entrepreneurship and E-Commerce
If I had to pick a niche that I can write about based on actual experience in my life, this is the topic. I had some odd jobs helping small business owners before getting a job in non-profit accounting. Then I managed several tax offices and spent the last 10 years online doing little things more as a hobby than a for-profit endeavor, but I made a profit so...
When I first started blogging, I started a blog on blogging. When I stopped blogging, that blog kept getting email sign ups. But while my Facebook page for it consists mainly of bloggers who love Ellen and puppies, the emails consist mainly of small businesses like spas, hair stylists, non-profits, and freelance graphic artists. I can't change the name of the blog, but I'm refocusing to cater more to small businesses with smaller budgets than most Boss Babes are aiming for.
As a result, I'm working on providing some courses, and with that, some workbooks. Once the courses are up, I'll be offering an affiliate program with the courses and the reseller book program. If I were to bundle mini-courses into huge courses, I'd be basically selling, to start, "How to start a blog," and "How to get your small business online." Eventually, I may veer off into employee training that all HR offices need to do but don't have time to put together.
The workbooks are professionally designed, and they are far from a generic free pdf. Basically, I write a book that one could read, and then I delete all the words and turn them into workable things you can implement immediately and book-friendly infographics. As a lazy SAHM and a previous Too Busy for That Manager, I understand people don't have time to read a bunch of fluff. Like my goal isn't to sell a book as much as help people do what I promise to help them do.
