The Ultimate Super Niche Marketplace?

Last Update: February 24, 2016

We are all heading in the same direction.....some are close to it .....others further away....whilst I have actually reached it.....What am I talking about....Retirement.

There are a huge range of lucrative micro niche markets in this just have to drill down to find them. Social networking sites dedicated to the over 50s are a source of endless inspiration for blog posts and provide great opportunities to interact with your target market.

So here is my list of top social networking sites targeting the over 50s. As I live in the UK you will find many of these sites are UK orientated, nevertheless I hope they will give you food for thought. Global Alexa rankings are shown to provide a rough guide to the popularity of each site

Alexa 151,523

Alexa 226,095

Alexa 548,794

Alexa 262,006

Alexa 3,844,898

Thank you Iain. I too am in the UK and I will be talking about living with chronic illness, which affects all ages of course but particularly as we get older. I had no idea these websites even existed.
