E-commerce can be a cold and lonely world at times because nearly everything there is to be online are already online. All you just need to do to carve a niche for yourself is pick out a single most demanded product or service to begin a business on solely. That is what niche is all about. The era of generalized e-business is slowly fading away and this is the dawn of niche business when customers can visit a store for a particular service and another store for something else.
When you dominate a niche online, you have earned a reputation that your customers can trust. And since the first currency of online transaction is trust, then you need more of that from your potential customers before they can give you a dime.
As at now this niche I am about to reveal is so hot, uncharted and in constant demand at home and abroad.

However he is a bit old school and doesn’t have any idea about creating an e-business for this idea of his. Well because he is my client does not mean I won’t share this secret with you. After all paybackjob is about revealing hidden money making secrets among many other vital career enhancing scoops.
