Infopreneurs explore the uncharted "blue oceans" of internet business to define their niche markets.

In the wider sense, an infopreneur is an entrepreneur whose main media is the World Wide Web and main source of profits are information products or services. Presently, more than 1 billion people around the globe are using the Internet. Online retailing has become a booming business. On 2005, the total online sales have reached US$89 billion. The rapid growth of Internet and the vast business opportunities that comes with it, has made many successful infopreneurs. These infopreneurs are able to tap on the Internet to reach out to the mass markets.

A better way is to do a search in the search engines to sell what people are looking for and try to provide a service to compliment it.
