John Thornhill and Dave Nicholson have just released their Niche Marketing Kit.
It contains what they say is “over $10,000 worth of tools that are responsible for over a million dollars in sales this year.”
We have known of these men for years; we have bought products from them; we have no doubt they have achieved that million dollars in sales this year.
They have built this package of tools carefully and with great thought. They have selected their most useful tools and training, designed to work in online marketing processes that every marketer needs to master.
This sale started out when, as usual at this time of year, Thornhill and Nicholson evaluated their results to determine what they did right (and wrong) in their business. They noticed 5 specific areas that were “front and center” in helping them generate over a million dollars in sales.
Every single website online needs traffic. During 2020, they managed to drive record numbers of visitors to their websites and the websites of their clients.
We all know how important it is to be building a list of followers. Well, they had their best year ever for the list building and email marketing work they did.
In 2020, social media played a big role in building their online business, and going forward, its role will only increase.
They focused heavily on video marketing and its contribution to their business mustn’t be underestimated.
This year they implemented some new affiliate strategies that helped them reap record commissions. Their affiliate marketing processes won them over 50 JV competitions this year alone.
Why are we telling you about what helped them this year? In Niche Marketing Kit, they are sharing what worked for them. They say it’s everything you need to succeed in these important marketing processes. And, as they also say, that is only the beginning; there is a lot more in the package.

A strong SEO strategy can help you to escalate your blog or website to a new level. By keeping pace with the changing search algorithms, you can continue to benefit from the search engines.
SEMrush contributor Connor Lahey has shared nine tips to help you optimize your blog posts for SEO.
He says, “Whether you’re a small business owner looking to launch an e-commerce site or an SEO expert, below is an in-depth overview of our top blog SEO tips to help you optimize your next piece of content. More specifically, we’ll explain how great content should:
Leverage Topic Clusters to Organize Your Content
In the past, blogging and SEO have focused primarily on optimizing individual posts. While this is important, you can improve your search engine rankings even more by using topic clusters. Following this model, you select a larger “pillar” topic or target keyword you want to rank for and create individual pieces of “cluster” content based on specific keywords related to that topic. This results in greater interconnectedness between individual blogs, enhancing the website’s overall authoritativeness and your audience’s user experience”.
