Niche selection is easy for some who have a passion that connects well with some affiliate markets. I have been a generalist for my entire career in IT. From building computers, writing software, creating databases, making websites for others and more. Even trading stocks I stick with the general ETF QQQ and avoid specific stocks for volatility sake.
So, now that I want to focus on a niche within a market, I find myself overloaded with ideas. This can be a better than having nothing to work with but also causes a battle within my mind over which can be effectively monetized.
Some say to search for what people are researching on Google and start there (5,000,000 searches a minute). They are right. But again, the question is how to isolate the right niche for me to focus on and become a content expert.
Kyle's tutorial - The Diamond Traffic Program - has some great guidance on how to use google's own engine to find out what people are looking for. You just need to spend a few minutes brainstorming words and phrases to begin with. Then you can use either Jaaxy or Ahref to refine what niches might be better to focus on. Then of course you will want to look for affiliates that compliment the chosen niche.
So, I plan on rolling the dice, then asking my wife to choose the best niche :) See you in my next post... The niche growth.
