I have been having a great deal of difficulty choosing a niche. How do I know what's right for me? I have a couple of choices, and I don't want to do Affiliate Bootcamp just yet.

I think too many of us get overly concerned about our niche being in too competitive a market ... or too non-competitive. The best niche is the one you would love working on making successful ... no matter what the subject area. Good luck!

Thanks L7, I do want my first niche to be fun and interesting. I guess I'm just having trouble taking that first step because I'm not sure if there's a market.

Hi Chris,
I found that making a list of the possibilities and then brainstorming ideas for each one and how excited I got for each helped a lot. If you are still stuck try writing or at least starting to write an article for the one that you think you want to go with and see how it turns out. If it seems to flow and makes you want to write more, that's the one! If not, maybe skip it and try another, you can always come back. Remember you can have more than one, but to start out you really want to pick the one you are most passionate about and stick with it. Good luck!

Thanks Jeffry, I'll follow that plan and start throwing some ideas up and see what sticks. Does a niche necessarily need to be a physical product, or could it be something else such as a practice, routine or something people can learn?

What would you most enjoy learning, researching, and writing about? Is there anything you really enjoy doing? Think of one or two things. Then go to Amazon and search in your niche. You will be able to narrow it down and see what kind of things you might be able to sell. Start there and don't let the pressure overwhelm you.

the problem is that I actually have quite a few different interests, but the choices I've narrowed it down to involve music - supplies for bass guitar players - as I've been a musician for a big part of my life....and - please don't laugh...hair replacement solutions for people going through hair loss.
I love music and am fairly knowledgeable on the topic. but as a hair loss sufferer, and having several friends going through it, I have seen how it devastates people's self esteem and confidence.

I'm torn.

Then you have two really good ideas for your niche. There is absolutely no reason you can't do both, eventually. For now, which one do you feel more drawn to start working on? Hair loss or bass guitar supplies? Which one can wait? Why don't you research both and see which one may be more profitable for you? If you can get some income coming in from your first niche, you will be better able to start and concentrate on your second one.

That's great advice! I wasn't sure if marketing hair loss solutions would sound silly. But since I've got the premium membership, I could do a couple different sites. Thank you so much!
