Some of these unfair advantages may be very familiar to you, especially in the Internet Marketing “how to make money” space.
But in niches outside of this, it’s unheard of. They don’t know about it. So this alone gives me an unfair advantage.
With that said, let’s get started:
My Unfair Advantage with Market Samurai
Using Market Samurai (free trial) here is so unfair. I can do practically anything I want. I can spy on my competition, see what they’re doing, who’s ranking where, and what keywords to use to out rank my competitors.
Here’s a few videos showing your how I use Market Samurai to give me an unfair advantage over the rest.
Choosing the Right Domain
In this video I show you how I’m using Market Samurai to help me figure out the right domain to choose for the DIY niche.

Remember, you can’t just choose any old domain just because you think it sounds nice, sexy, or because it’s the shortest one available.
Sometimes the shortest domain is the wrong one for the audience you’re trying to target.
Choosing the Right Keyword Title Phrase for My Articles
Again in this video I show you how I use Market Samurai to figure out the right Title Keyword Phrase for the Title of my article.

When people go and search for something, they all use different keyword phrases. Some may type in, “How to Fix XYZ” while others type in, “How to Repair XYZ”.
It’s important to know which keyword phrase will give you the results you’re looking for.
My Unfair Advantage with StudioPress Themes
Anyone can have a generic or one of those free so called custom themes to make their blogs look different The thing is that there’s a tons of people out there using those free and generic themes.
StudioPress has a bunch of great and beautiful themes, many that I’ve personally used right here on this very blog you’re on now. It allows me to use a Premium theme that not many people have seen before, making it look custom.
Choosing the Right WordPress Theme for My Niche
Here I show you how I spy on the competition to figure out what StudioPress Theme to go with for my wordpress blog and why I chose that theme.

My Unfair Advantage with OptinSkin
Creating custom optin forms can cost you 100’s if not 1000’s of dollars if you don’t know how to code or design.
Just one custom optin form can cost you anywhere from $40 – $150 depending on whether your coder knows how to design, and vise versa.
With the OptinSkin plugin I can create as many optin forms as I want. It has many forms to choose from and I can customize each form to fit my blog design.
Creating Custom Optin Forms
This one here I show you how I easily create optin forms with the OptinSkin pluign. I also show you how to strategically place them throughout your blog post.

My Unfair Advantage with iVipid
With iVipid I can create custom intros and outros for my videos making them look professional.
Before I found iVipid, I was paying $97 per intro and $47 per outro. That’s CRAZY!!!
Creating A Custom Intro
In this video here I show you how I choose the right intro for my DIY niche videos. I also show you how I create a video intro.

Editing and Inserting the Intro and Outro
Here I show you how I edit my videos and insert the intro and outro using a screen capture software called ScreenFlow. This is only for Mac. If you have PC then Camtasia will work pretty much the same.

My Unfair Advantage with Blog that Matters Course
This has to be the most Unfair Advantage of all. Totally unfair.
Here I give you a behind the scenes tour of the back office of the How to Start a Blog that Matters course, and a sneak peak at the actual course.

That’s My unfair Advantage Kit
These premium plugins, services, and software will give a a big advantage over my competition. Only for the fact that most if not all of them don’t know what we know.
Corbett Barr’s course and Market Samurai alone are just to much of an unfair advantage.
I’ll be updating this post with more unfair advantages as I use them. I do have more planned, but as I’m not using them now I see no point in mentioning them. I may not use all that I have planned to use.
For now these are the ones I’m currently using for my DIY Niche site.
