I could list more variations of these with different price levels and there can be combinations, but I think you get the idea.

As you can see, you only need somewhere ​around 1,000 fans to make a living in a business, not considering taxes.  The number 1,000 is not absolute. Its significance is in its rough order of magnitude. 

A thousand customers to shoot for isn't an unrealistic goal, even when you are new. If you added one new ​fan per day, it’d only take a few years to gain a thousand.

This also means that you don't necessarily need a large niche. With the internet, ​the most obscure under-selling book, song, or idea, is only one click away.

You probably heard about the sum of obscure long-tail keywords having more volume than head keywords. Similarly, eBay, Amazon, Netflix, etc, noticed that the total sales of *all* the lowest selling obscure items would equal or in some cases exceed the sales of the few best selling items.

Therefore you don't even need a large niche to make ​a hundred thousand dollars. Even if only one out of a million people were interested in your product, that’s potentially 7,000 people on the planet.

The thing is, the big corporations are not equipped to connect with small niches of people. That means the long tail is wide open to you.

Now let’s get your product out there to make you money!
