Niche Selection

Last Update: July 12, 2021

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.

Hi Rebekah, thanks again for the help with niche selection. I still have trouble narrowing down my selected niche. I just have too many choices in mind. I'm hoping to hit on it by keeping up with writing content so maybe a topic will shine a light on the right track to take.

Thank you,
Frank , the best niche for you when starting out is the one that you most passionate about , but this advice is a good one now ,
After couple months at wealthy affiliate you may decide on having website for more than one Niche
Because your favourite niche may not be profitable , so this happen sometime example
You may in the software nice and then you realise , wow
I learn a lots about pets and I also have a dog
So you may have a pet niche website after a while
I hope you understand exactly what am saying
Nice one Frank

Niche selection is probably the most important activity that will be responsible for your success on your online business

Market research is absolutely a must before you choose a niche

Ensuring that your niche is in a competitive market and there are high and medium affiliate products is a huge factor in your own success

Then comes ensuring that you have your target audience and that your content consist of speaking from the point of view of your target audience.

There is a lot to be taken into consideration, apart from being passionate about it

and private decision.

that you have more knowledge of,,
understanding and experiences
with as you are going to write
quality and valuable content.

It is best to take your time with
