I am always on the lookout for good niches that will make money online, but sometimes you find gold when you least expect it.
The other day I was walking into the post office when I noticed a guy wheeling a cart up to the front door. I only had a couple of small items, so I held the door open for him. The guy went ahead of me while I was taking care of a shipping label, and I wound up in line right behind him.
After a minute I realized he had about 40 packages to ship Ė great I thought, Iíll be here a while.
Thatís when I noticed he had all sorts of packages to ship, some flat packages, some small boxes, and some bigger boxes.
I noticed several packages had customs labels affixed for international shipping.
My curiosity aroused, I eased a little closer, and read the return address off the shipping label.
I recognized the address as a local business complex, but I had never heard of the business.
When I returned to the office a quick Google search revealed the guy was operating an ecommerce website for what I would have thought was a fairly obscure niche.
Intrigued, I visited the business only to realize it was a warehouse operation with no storefront Ė however, it was in a complex that has a pretty good market rate on the rent, and is located on a major thoroughfare.
Based on the packages I witnessed being shipped, along with the obvious overhead they are covering, it looks like this business is doing pretty good.
I guess Iíll pay closer attention next time I go to the post office.
