I am now trying to understand how to do niche market research and would like to know what tools to focus on the steps to take and if there is a case study here on this can you give me a link for it.

I would like to learn how to develop a new mindset for being an affiliate marketer.

Read some thing interesting from lynn where she came across something then came home and did some research, and actually put up a site or something so need more examples of this type of case study to better understand how this process works.
