Choosing A Niche

Last Update: February 09, 2016

I haven't been a member here for very long, but one thing that I've noticed is that there is a lot of uncertainty about what niche to choose. This really isn't something that other members here can answer, because we don't know you as well you know you. LOL! YOU know what you are the most excited about....what it is that gives you a "tingle" when you think about it. What is it that you can talk about for hours on end without getting bored with it? What is it that you could write about freely, without any hesitation? I know that it is a concern whether you can actually make money with this niche, once you have decided on it, but the training here is exceptional when it comes to researching that aspect of it. Just go ahead and choose your niche first by going with what is your passion. I'm certain that there are many people out there who share your interest, it may just be a matter of how to put the words together in the Jaaxy search to get favorable results. I know one thing for sure. You won't get anywhere unless you take that first step of choosing. Go ahead and choose!

Great advice. What is your advice on narrowing down niches to just one or two out of many? Just kidding. Enjoyed your writing. Cheers! Bunny Oldridge

Thanks, Bunny! If all your niche choices are equal, you can go alphabetically or just flip a coin. LOL. I think I would look at which one would bring in the most $$ and start with that one.....but I'm kinda greedy at this point. I want to retire from my JOB now, and do this full time. ;-)
Keep smiling!

Hello. Going by the many comments about niche marketing in the past there are far too many new members who just jump in and its full steam ahead without any real thought to what they will sell/promote or indeed how their website should look and what it should contain with regard to any meaningful content.

Anyway I have almost finished a blog on choosing a niche so keep an eye open for it.
You did raise awareness though and that's a good thing and sure to give some of the newer members pause for thought.
have a great day.

Thanks, Robert! I guess I was thinking about the old sayings, like "Strike while the iron is hot" and "He/She who hesitates is lost." I know that putting things off due to uncertainty can end up with no results at all, and you learn by doing and by making mistakes. It's kinda like putting off marriage or having kids until "you're ready" sometimes results in no actions.

I do understand that making a bad choice of a niche will result in wasting time and money, and that should be avoided, but inaction should be avoided as well.

Thanks for your input. I look forward to your blog.

Look before you leap is always best in my book.
Due diligence and research will pay off in the end.
Have a nice day/evening.

Gotta be at least 1 thing you love to talk about. There's your niche. Easy. Lol. Geoff. The friendly fisherman :)

Yep...definitely. We all have our pet areas to dabble in. The older you get, the more dabbling you can do. ;-)

These are all good questions to ask yourself while choosing a niche. Most of us are passionate about SOMETHING. ~Debbi

Yes...and although I've seen a few websites that made me shake my head in wonder, I'm sure that there are others who loved them. Just the way the world is....whatever blows your skirt up, as my Momma used to say.

If we all liked the same thing, life would get boring. I'm not sure about my skirt blowing up though. lol.

LOL! My mom was a Colorado mountains hillbilly and had a rough way of getting her points across....but she definitely got them across! You always knew what was on her mind and where you stood. She used to sing an old hillbilly ballad called "Cross-eyed Sue." Not exactly politically correct. ;-)

lol. Perhaps it was the generation because, embarrassingly sometimes, you always knew what my mother was thinking and where you stood.

Could be. No such thing as political correctness back in those days. Sometimes I'd like to return to those days. So much fear today to say what we think so we don't offend anyone. I think it enables rudeness and bad behavior.

Very true that Dennis, I have picked a niche that I am passionate about otherwise I won't enjoy it when I am writing content, I think you produce better when you enjoy your niche :)

Definitely. If we could all love our 9-5 jobs, it wouldn't be so bad putting 30+ years into them, but we would still be making someone else wealthy. WA gives us the opportunity to love what we're doing and put money in our own pockets at the same time.
