Wow, that was quite a packed course. If you’re just landing here and haven’t seen the whole review of Stealth Niche Research, you can start with part 1 here.
Now that all is said and done, what’s my final verdict?
Let’s start with…
In the sales letter, Alex Safie promised to talk about buyer psychology, demographics and psychographics, and how to research a niche. He definitely delivered on all of those. The course was set up to give you easy-to-digest chunks of information followed by an assignment to make sure you’d understood what he said. There were examples, including some very professional-looking videos that showed each of the steps of his process. There’s also a lot about understanding your customer that I think is really important when it comes to marketing. He also walked you through some ways to brainstorm a niche from scratch.
His ideas are solid. He promised to teach about T-WEB, which turned out to be useful information. I got the sense that he knows a lot about marketing, and I feel like I learned a lot from him. I also learned some new things about niche research. Throughout the course, there are links to a number of resource websites that are useful in finding out information about a niche you’re interested in. There are also instructions on what to look for and what kinds of questions to ask.
You get some very useful bonuses, too. A couple of ebooks and an email course that all have good, solid information on keyword research, SEO and getting traffic.
Finally, the customer service interactions I had were speedy and got my problem fixed. I was quite happy.
Then there’s the software. Three total programs if you by the OTO, or just one (Stealth Niche Brainstorm) if you just buy the main course.
Stealth Niche Brainstorm worked well and did what it was supposed to: found me a list of keyword suggestions. When I pitted the results against Ubersuggest.org, they varied. In one case, Stealth Niche Brainstorm got nearly twice as many suggestions as Ubersuggest.org; in the other case, it got significantly fewer. Overall, I’d say that Stealth Niche Brainstorm worked as advertised and does a good job at what it’s designed to do.
Stealth Keyword Digger was a little less impressive. It’s supposed to find keywords from a variety of sources. It also filters them based on search results. It did that just fine. However, it tended to time out (possibly due to Google objecting to the work Stealth Keyword Digger was forcing it to do). Overall, I think it would be a better program if you could limit the number of results so Google didn’t have a fit.
As for Stealth Keyword Competition Analyzer, I had a bit of trouble getting it started, but I loved it once I did get it going. It does a great analysis of keywords, including a few factors I haven’t seen in other software.
And then we come to what I didn’t like. Overall, it boiled down to one main thing, plus one disappointment. The big thing happened in Chapter 6, where you get a list of criteria that your niche should meet. It’s an extensive list and fits into the whole T-WEB concept.
In my case, the niche I was considering didn’t fit all of the criteria. It fit some beautifully, but failed miserably at others. At no point did the course talk about what to do if your niche didn’t have every bit of the criteria. Were some of the criteria more important than others? Where they all make or break? I don’t honestly know if my niche is a good one based on what he taught.
Then the disappointment: I (maybe) have a niche. What do I do with it? Even though it’s not really promised in the training, I would have liked to see a “where do you go from here now that you’ve finished the course” section. That also makes it hard for me to post my results for y’all to see. I found some keywords in a niche that look pretty good but not perfect.
So … I’ll probably be figuring out how to monetize my keywords, and I’ll let you know how it goes. In fact, I may make that a project for the new year. I’ll keep you updated as I figure it out.
And in conclusion…
The information you do get is extensive. It’s presented in a way that is easy to understand and follow through with. The software is useful, but Alex Safie also shows you how to do the analysis without the software. The bonuses are worth the price of admission by themselves, and the customer service is good.
I would point out that if you’re a newbie, this is not an entire “how to make money on the internet” course. Nor does it claim to be. It’s a “how to do keyword research and find a niche” course with bonuses that help you get traffic and optimize your website for SEO. The part where you find out how to actually monetize the niche/keywords, however, is missing.
When I look at everything, I think this course is worth having. I recommend Stealth Niche Research by Alex Safie. If you’ve done the course, I’d love to hear what you think!
