The 10 Most Popular Niches I found on the Internet

Last Update: Aug 7, 2017


I have had trouble knowing what niche I wanted to make my website about and I see a few people have the same problem I had. So I decided I would try and see the 10 best online business niches to be following.

Firstly, we need to know what are the best selling online products if we want to
be where the sales are to get some of the action. We will also need
to discover whether in our chosen niche it is going to be our product
or another product through affiliate marketing.

This is really worth looking at as affiliate marketers have had best sellers for a long time as they appeal to the peoples deeply held desires and needs. Products may change but the core niches will not disappear as they will always be a part of the human experience. They are bricks and mortar stores with staying power.

1. Fitness and Weight Loss:

For centuries, people have been obsessed with weight loss and getting in
shape and fit. Hundreds of companies have sprung up with products to help people do just that; diets, weight loss programs, supplements, exercise programs and so on. I believe you can not possibly go wrong in this niche!

2. Health:

Health is very closely related to weight loss and fitness but it is a little different as to merit being named separately in the Top 10 List.

3. Dating and Relationships:

Business in this niche would include promoting dating websites many of which offer commissions to marketers who send them new sign ups. You could promote books on building strong and healthy relationships, communications made easier and more.

4. Pets:

Folk will spare no expense when it comes to their pets. You just have to visit the local pet shop where you will discover just about anything pet-related! Pet toys, healthy treats, gourmet dog and cat food, water and feed containers, fancy beds, animal leashes and even pet strollers. Dog training is a huge market as is pet clipping. So if your passion is Pet related there are affiliates that will pay commissions to sell books and courses.

5. Wealth Building:

People everywhere want to make money and more and more people are wanting to start an online business so as they can give up their day job and work from the comfort of their home. A good niche is in Investing: Stocks, Bonds, Options, Forex Futures being some of the ways.

6. Making Money On The Internet:

You can create your own information courses and products, and eBooks. There are Affiliates to help you in this area. Learn how to create a website and build a successful online business. My choice is Wealthy Affiliate!

7. Self Improvement:

This is a huge online lifestyle niche also known as self-help. There are so many self-improvement products available: building self-esteem, setting and achieving goals, increasing self-confidence, career success, overcoming obstacles. I am sure we have all heard of ones like Tony Robbins. It’s a $10 Billion a year industry and is growing rapidly.

8. Beauty:

This industry is predicted to grow to nearly $200 billion in sales annually by 2019!

9. Technology and Gadgets:

Affiliates like Amazon are ideal for this niche whether it’s a Tablet, Smart Phone, Computers, MP3 Players, and smart devices for the home, everyone wants the latest technology! You can also review products in a category. Each product has a link to buy with your affiliate link number.

10. Personal Finance:

By promoting information products as an affiliate you can connect prospects with expert providers. There are a lot of opportunities in this huge niche as people need help managing their finances or securing money for important expenses.

I hope this has been of help in your search for a niche to start your online business.

Sorry, Jimmy it's only the top 10 :)

All really strong niche ideas , right! I don't think they have changed many of those categories for many years now. If we where conflicted as to what to create a site about. Pick one of those and run like the wind. I don't think you'll regret it . Thanks Carol solid the information as always.
