The way we market and sell online is changing.
There are more people online than ever before, spending more money than ever before on things that give them a leg up in the world. That means more money going to ebooks, ecourses, and other forms of online education; coaching, consulting, and advisory services; software solutions, and high quality implementors (engineers, designers, etc.).
This growth comes with a price: more noise (aka competing offers other than your own that are targeting the same market).
And things are only going to heat up over the next 3 to 5 years.
Are you positioning yourself and your business in such a way that you can profit from these changes over the next decade?
Not sure? No sweat.

What’s your “niche” or long tail space / area / topic? Have you considered going deeper / more narrow? Why or why not?
