I Drink And I Know Things
Last Update: Aug 15, 2018
If you haven't found your niche yet.
You may consider Game Of Thrones as one, let's dive in deeper and see what's make GOT a good niche.
A Huge Fan Base
For 10 persons, there are probably 3 who watch the TV Show, I don't have the hard number, this is just speculation.
What make GOT watchers different from other TV Shows is they're FAN, as a fan they're willing to spend money on GOT related products.
I know because I'm one of them.
If you do a search on Amazon US, there're 20 000 results for GOT. 20 000 it's a consequent number, however, it's not a big number on Amazon term. It can become bigger, a lot bigger.
Plenty of Ideas for Great Contents
- The Universe - G.R. R Martin has created an amazing universe where zombies like White Walkers controlled by the Knight King, Dany and her Dragons meet Resurrected Men and in the middle of all that crazy events, you have a very clever Imp whose only joy is to drink and to bed.
- The Characters - From Arya to Tyrion, you will have enough ideas to create interesting contents for months, even years to come.
- The Story - What make GOT so successful and unique, it's the story. You never know where the story line will bring you, surprises are everywhere. One particular thing I love, G.R. R Martin and the show runners are brilliants, they know how to manipulate its audience and this is so exciting.
- The Music are also a delight for your ears.
It's Time Proof
Game Of Thrones will come to an end next year after HBO will release the last season, the 8 on probably June 2019.
The end of GOT doesn't mean the end of GOT.
Next year HBO will start filming another show based on Game Of Thrones, a Spin Off. It will be a prequel where we will learn more about the origin of the Targaryen and their dragons, probably how the Night King was created and I believe many and many other interesting Lores.
We also shouldn't forget that G.R. R Martin hasn't finish his last book on GOT yet.
He will also publish many books based on GOT universe.
It's Not Oversaturated
There are plenty of videos and websites on Game Of Thrones.
However, very good channels on YouTube, you probably have 5 and I believe it's the same case for website.
People are just trying to surf on the trend, with this kind of situation, it's a mess. GOT fans are among the smartest one, they spot easily the good contents from the bad ones.
Not a lot of websites are specialized on reviewing GOT related products, there are a lot of opportunities there.
It's not a surprise I've chosen GOT as a niche, I even already secured the Domain Name few months ago:
I also intend to design T-Shirt and other DIY products about the show, however, I'm very conscious, I can only use few materials from the show if I don't want to infringe their copyright.
I hope you will have a better idea on how to choose your niche after reading this short post.
What's important for me when I choose a niche:
- It doesn't need to be a passion, however, it should be interesting enough for me to do some researches.
- It should be broad enough with a sufficient audience and merchandising that I can monetize. Don't forget a passion is good, yet, a passion that can bring in some cash is even better.
Passion + Money = An Excellent Cocktail
- It shouldn't be trendy, a trend never last long.
You don't want to spend time and energy on something then to realize it's already outdated.
- It should have a lot of materials you can work on.
It will be easier for you to create contents, you're not reinventing the wheel. If you spend weeks or months to write captivating contents, your readers are already somewhere else.
Why So Serious?
OK, let's have some fun and play a prediction game.
If you're a fan of the show, you probably know, a lot of persons are speculating about the ending of GOT.
So who will beat the Knight King?
I believe John, Dany, her dragons and other characters will fiercely fight the Night King and his army of the dead.
However, a Youtuber going by the name of Gray Area made a very interesting video on Bran and how he can beat the Night King by going back in the past.
It makes sense for me, Bran is very powerful, even he's very young.
Other fans also discuss about the idea how John Snow will beat the Night King, however, he has to sacrifice himself and become the Night King himself after beating him.
In my opinion John will help Bran beat the Night King, however, Bran will take the place of the actual Night King, only him has the power to control other persons with his mind.
Who will sit on the Throne?
Perhaps Dany, because she dreamed of it before. The people behind this amazing show never filmed a scene just for the pleasure of filming, it's always has a meaning.
It could also mean she will die, as the throne was cover in ashes when she dreamed of it.
So the one who will sit on the throne will be Tyrion and it makes sense. He's smart, brave when it's necessary and he loves to drink, all king like to drink, no?
I can talk about this show for hours, it's the best show ever created, it's just brilliant. The final season, the 8 will be amazing, the prequel is in good hand.
There are so many contents I want to create around the show and its merchandising, can't wait to start and you should think about it as well. It's a niche with a lot of potentials.
This is just my opinion though.
If you have a any idea on how the show will end or just want to talk about the show, let's have a discussion.
hmm sounds good there Calvin although I do not follow the show,
Maybe you can try to watch one episode or 2 when you have a little time to spend.
It's the best TV Show ever created.
Thanks for dropping by Gus, I highly appreciate your comments.
I know I heard people talking about it all the time!...lol I keep saying to myself I will sit down and watch it one day..but I never do. Life is just too crowded at the moment, thank you for the thought though..I will let you know when I finally watch an episode...lol
Nice Calvin...great food for thought about finding niches.
Very interesting.......how's it going to work long term?
A lot of different things come to mind....good luck!
Thanks for dropping by, Laurel.
I think it will work fine in long term.
GOT fan base is a solid one, they're a little like Geek, I think.
Yes, the big problem with GOT is there are so many things going on, it's hard to know where to start.
I totally agree GOT would be a great niche with a lot of available fanbase. But I'm curious about how you'll generate income other than your t-shirt idea. Are you planning on using ads, or is there something you can affiliate with for GOT related products. I mean you could even find era appropriate stuff to sell. Like goblets or decorative swords or whatever (I don't actually watch the show, but I think you can get my point).
I love this idea as I'm an avid reader and it might be fun to do a fan oriented site. I'm just trying to think of how to approach it.
Thanks, Kat for dropping by and for taking the time to share your opinions.
All the merchandising around GOT are mostly the products you mentioned, Lol.
However, in term of design, it can be better for some products.
A fan oriented website is what I want to build. The good side with a fan oriented website is fans are a very good audience. They're easier to convert if you can deliver the right information and products to them.
If you like reading, I would suggest you do a comparaison between the books and the TV show. I haven't read the books yet, but, I know there're a lot of difference.
It can be interesting to point them out.
If you end up creating a website on GOT, I would be interest to visit it if you don't mind.
Who knows perhaps we can work together on some subjects.
It is good to have a passion Calvin. All niches are money spinners if they are done correctly.
I agree, Derek, passion can make a very good niche.
As you said a good niche with good contents and well done = Money Making Machine.
Thanks to you Derek, for dropping by.
Good of you passionate about Games. I chose health arena knowing that diabetes is a huge market but i need to look for niche too. Some thing like diabetes Guclose test strips csn be better so i shall go that path too
I believe Diabetes is a very good niche, more and more people have diabetes.
In my family there are 4 persons who have diabetes. Diabetes touch a lot of persons in undeveloped countries like Cambodia, Birmanie and many more.
It will be very helpful to have more information on this disease.
There are a lot of products and even Apps related to diabetes.
You have a niche with a lot of potentials here.
Where to even start... i’d love to dive into a deeper conversation about GOT but that might take away a bit too much content writing time haha.
Can’t wait till next year though.
Yeah, the final season will be amazing.
For sure, you won't run out of ideas for GOT.
Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to leave a comment.
Giving me ideas for some other niches!!!
Tried and True

Let me know when the site is up and running, Calvin. Would love the T-Shirt.
I have this (T-Shirt) in mind too but pretty busy at the moment to pursue. Don't worry, mine is not GOT. lol
All the BEST!
Thanks for dropping by Sharon.
I'm also pretty busy preparing other websites.
I intend to start GOT website next year probably.
However, I would start desiging the T-Shirt soon, it won't be only about GOT. I haven't the licence to produce GOT products, so I will play around what I'm allow to do.
T-Shirt business is good, people will always wear T-Shirts, if you're interest you can try:
Printfull, it's a print on demand company, they have good reviews, the best probably, it's why I decide to go with it.
The must is of course Amazon Merch, the process can be very long to be accepted, it's better to have a website up and running before applying.
I also want to try Screen Printing myself, the accessories you need for doing so is not very expensive. I know where to get the blank T-Shirts for cheap also.
Then you will need a Shopify Store.
If you're interest to know more, don't hesitate to PM me Sharon.
PS: I don't mind you go into GOT also, different ideas is always good, I do my design by taking inspiration from others work, so.
Today we're not reinventing the wheel, we can only try to make something different or better with a little of our own touch.
Very true, Calvin. Something different and better will be nice.
Thanks for all the tips/information. Will PM you when I'm ready.
Till then, take care & best wishes!
