Benjamin Cip asked recently in a comment “I didn’t know about Market Samurai until I visit your blog, could you tell me more about it?” I am happy to oblige 😉 I must admit I have so far only scratched the surface and not fully explored all the features Market Samurai has, so I will write about what I know it does, and not about what the sales copy says it does, ok?
Let me also get one thing more out of the way, the banner in the top left corner of this blog post, the one in the sidebar and the text links are referral links. That means that if you use them to get your free Market Samurai trial and decide later to buy it, I will earn $s 😉 These $s are paid by Market Samurai, not by you btw, but if you really, really don’t want to use my referral link, here is a squeaky clean link to their web site: http://www.marketsamurai.com/ no strings attached! Your decision which link to use 😉 Now back to Market Samurai’s possibilities.
Market Samurai is a tool that helps you to find profitable niches and to monitor the progress of sites you have set up in those niches. It is a great tool to find low competition niches that are still profitable enough to warrant to set up a site, nano niches so to speak.
Market Samurai is ideal to find (nano) niches because it allows you to generate long lists of potential keywords, analyze them for their earning potential, analyze them for their competition and monitor the progress your new site(s) make in the SERPs. It is easier to rank for those kind of low competition niches, then for highly competitive keywords. Better to be the big fish in a small pond, then a small fish in a big pond!
Additionally Market Samurai allows you to find sources for potential backlinks and content that you can use legally on your site. I have only scratched on this one, and not done a lot with it as I prefer to write my own content. But the “Promotion” tool looks promising. Perhaps one of my readers can chime in and tell us more if it is really as good as it looks?
Market Samurai also tells you what is the best way to monetize the niche you just found, some keywords are better monetized with Google Adsense, others will work better with Amazon, Market Samurai helps you also with this decision.
In one short sentence, Market Samurai is all what you need to make money online. If you use the keywords you find with it to build hubs on Hubpages, lenses on Squidoo, articles on Infobarrel or just write / set up a free blogspot blog you not even need to pay for an own web site to earn money online. But you will earn obviously more if you apply your findings to your own sites and blogs 😉
Market Samurai can also help bloggers to write better headlines and posts for their blogs, sometimes a little shift in the keywords of a blog post / title makes for a much bigger potential audience as more people are searching for it.
Sounds cool, right? If you are a regularly reader of this blog you know that I normally don’t write raving reviews about each product I come across. Actually, I think, this is the first time I do this 😉 I made always a point of only recommending something I am using myself and / or something that is free. I use Market Samurai extensively since weeks and it is free to try, no credit card details required.
Summary: Market Samurai is a great tool, but it is exactly that – a tool. You will need your brain and your hands to actually use it. You will have to — work!
So, did I got you curious? Why don’t you download the free trial and see for yourself if you and Market Samurai are a good fit? Remember, the keyword research feature stays available even after the trial period is over, what do you have to loose? You need only your email address to sign up for a free Market Samurai trial, no credit card details required!
