This is one of the most important factors as you should know which industries are more competitive and which are less. This will help you make categories of your target market in a better way. For instance, niches that cover sports are usually highly competitive and it will require you to put in a great effort to reap profits.

So making money in the news industry is not easy. Gauge other industries with the same yardstick.
