I was very excited when a friend of mine bought me an early Christmas of the Build A Niche Store, or BANS as it more commonly referred to in internet marketing circles.
Why was I juiced about it?
This product promised to be able to get you set up in a short time with a site that would act as a highly-targeted storefront to whatever hot category you selected from ebay. You would be providing an excellent means for people looking for a specific item or group of items to come to a site that could give them information they needed to make informed buying decisions and then give them one-click access to the eBay.com network.
With the incredible success of eBay I thought it looked like an opportunity that had to be explored.
When you purchase a BANS license, you get software that you can upload to your hosting account and use a web interface to set up and configure it to your liking.
I am a 3-month internet marketing newbie and my main concern was that it was a product that walked me step-by-step through the process without having to spend hours posting to help forums.
As I will discuss in future posts, the effort required fell somewhere in between just following directions and having to learn how to build a website.
