I cannot stress enough what researching aprofitable niche means to a successful online business. I read somewhere where one of thesuccessful internet marketers said that failure to do your research on your chosen niche could costyou your business idea.You can have an absolutely wonderful idea for a business, money to start the business, andmotivation but if you do not have paying customers you have "NO" business. That is why it is veryimportant to research your niche market for potential paying customers.

Customers will becomerepeat customers if you provide them with great customer service. How many times have youeaten in a restaurant that screwed up your order? I have and I am sure you have too.
However, the server provided exceptional customer service by not making excuses, apologizing,keeping a positive and light attitude, checking on me frequently until my corrected order wasserved. Then they followed up to see how my order was and if there was anything else, they couldget for me. On top of that the manager came out with a complimentary dessert, bottle of wine, orwhatever. I could have written them off because of that experience but everyone makes a mistakebut how they handle the customer counts. I am still a repeat customer at that restaurant to thisday.Exceptional customer service not only when something is wrong but also when you get it right willhelp you increase your online profits from repeat customers. Remember the saying that if onecustomer walks out unhappy about customer service they tell ten more people. Can you imagineyour profits from positive feedback.Key #4 - Form a repeatable plan that works and brings online profits. Stick with your plan that hasworked and change it as needed based on your niche market, your profits, and other indicatorsthat factor into your business.
