No. Not yet.

This is one of the most common questions that I get here within the community and I can respect the fact that everyone is naturally going to look for the "hottest niche".

However, there is no such thing. You make a niche a profitable and this is done as build out your website. It comes down to your ability to help PEOPLE within a given niche. If you can accomplish this, you build trust and you will ultimately be able to recommend products/services to them and convert at a very high rate.

Over the years I have been involved in many niches and I have never second guessed whether or not it will be profitable or not. It will be, I WILL MAKE IT and that is exactly what happened...in every single niche I entered into. That is what can and will happen within any niche you enter into as well, as long as you are willing to work at it.

Think of it this way. There are 2.8 billion people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the global audience you are dealing and it is very likely that even the most obscure niches that you can come up with have an audience in the "millions of people". Yes, millions.

YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in and passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

So in answer to the question, YES, your niche is a profitable one. Every niche can be very profitable, as in, a full time business online.

I actually like this post a lot. The only thing I would say is that I think it's a good thing to also look for products and services that you can promote in a niche you are passionate about. You may love hunting for snails at the bottom of the ocean, but if hardly anyone else is interested, you probably won't make any mone and that is a drag. I don't think you will want to keep blogging about snail hunting, but you can still pursue it as a hobby and get a big kick out of it! Lol!

I agree with all of these comments about niches. On my first WA website, I use a common (I assume) niche in best selling Amazon golf clubs and accessories. My blog states that beginning and average golfers can get overwhelmed by the available choices, and it is easier ("faster, cheaper, targeted") to buy those that are best selling on Amazon, since you can sort through them by that best selling category.

Unfortunately, trying to break through Amazon's grip within the first 2 pages of that niche on Google, no matter what keywords you use, will be difficult, no matter how good my keywords and blogs are.

Does anyone have any advice for me in this regard?

I post on social media, spread the word through there and get people to come to my website. I think the extra traffic you get from just spreading the word in that way would help a little bit.

It's not as difficult as we often think, I think ;-)
Kyle, you said: "as long as you are willing to work at it".
And that's exactly The Key to success in my opinion.
Indeed, there are millions of people online,
and becoming more and more
I only need to reach a part of those millions to be successful...

On choosing a niche:

Think about something you: ALWAYS TALK ABOUT, ALWAYS THINK ABOUT, OR ALWAYS DREAM ABOUT >>> This IS your niche!

The thing you spend most of your time focusing on is where you start.

Lets say you love cats. You have a cat (or many of them). You find something so cool about cats til all your friends and family start buying cats because of their association with you. Voila!

YOU'RE the cat EXPERT!

Now you must market this passion relentlessly online and it WILL be profitable because you're the subject matter EXPERT. Get it?

Now, I may not find cats to be all that fascinating so I wouldn't be your audience. Don't worry about me though.

However, think about the millions of people with cats who don't know you but they go online searching for information about cats and find YOU!...hmmmmm

If you work DILIGENTLY placing relevant content about CATS (and did I say CATS) on your site, get good rankings in the search engines, and you dedicate your time to the growth of your "I love Cats" site all around: THEN you'll be the first result to pop up in the search engines!

THEN everyone will know who you are and THEY'LL TRUST YOU when it comes to "All things CAT."... Get it?

They'll bookmark your site and become your disciples. You'll have created a tribe of cat lovers...CHA CHING!

They'll buy from you. They'll leave comments. They'll share your posts on social media. They'll refer other cat lovers to your site. They'll find they cannot live without you...(hopefully they don't become stalkers LOL!)

This is how you become the authority in your cat niche.

Now rinse and repeat this process with any niche website you create. Get it? Good! Glad I could help!

I hope my awkward humor didn't overshadow my seriousness. I really understand a niche better when I think of it this way.

Blessings to all of you and BEST of luck choosing a niche everyone!!!

thanks, all of that information is starting to get me to start thinking outside the box.

Thank you so much for this help! I have been thinking about making a website that will be successful and wasn't sure how that would happen. But I understand now that you make it happen by creating something you love and can be proud of. I now have a couple ideas in mind that I think could be a good fit for me. Thanks again!

Hi STillman1! I liked this post! Can I use "all things cat" as a niche?

I guess the problem for me right now is I do not yet know what is out there with respect to payments and rates. My current thinking is that if you have a website for example, for a little known animal (whatever) in a small country, you would have much less traffic on your website than if it was a more common niche that everyone in every country of the world might be interested in. Am I wrong in this thinking?

Being the only expert in a small market can prove to be just as profitable to be one of many experts in a large market.

It can be hard to choose the perfect niche the first time around. I could tell you to go sell a guide on how to lose weight, but if you are not interested in it, how do you plan to write 3 articles a week about it? It will make you bored and impatient.

Choose something that interests you, and you'll be able to keep interest for much longer than a random subject chosen based on profitability.

I left you some suggestions for evergreen markets on your other question that can server as starting points for finding your niche.
