Public Domain Niche Idea #4
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Here is yet another idea for a niche marketer looking to profit from the public domain. I've already discussed books, recipes, and video. This article will focus on audio.

As is the case with other areas, there is a vast array of audio available in the public domain. And I'm not just talking about music, either. . .although you certainly could find enough to sustain a healthy business. You certainly could come up with a number of musical genres around which to build a business, but I would say classical music would be one of the best places to start. That doesn't mean you can't/won't be successful in other areas. You just have to look. There is certainly enough out there.

Here's an interesting offshoot. Don't just focus on music. Audio books are HUGE! Many people like the convenience of listening to a self-help book while in the car on the way to work. Perhaps there is a work of fiction someone has always wanted to read but has no time. Audio book to the rescue. An example that I've sold in the past is Jack London's Call of the Wild. I figured it was a title many people had heard of, but they (for whatever reason) just didn't get a chance to read it. I downloaded it, burned it to a CD, and listed it on eBay. Guess what. It sold. And you can do that over and over again with the same title. You just never know what someone may be looking for, and the neat thing is that with the public domain you can deliver.

Now I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Up to this point, in the articles I've written thus far, I haven't divulged any sources. I'm feeling generous this Mother's Day (and my mother would want me to be generous), so I'm going to throw you a little bone here. An awesome source of public domain audio is a company called Librivox. All the audio books I've come across are well done, professional recordings. This, in fact, could be the only source you would need for audio (especially books). Check it out.

Just like with the film niche, there are so many things you can do with audio. One additional that I failed to mention would be sound effects. Do you think there would be a market for that? I don't see why not. I know you certainly wouldn't have difficulty finding them.

Whatever you can come up with in the area of audio, the public domain is sure to have it. Happy hunting.
