Hello, I am interested in starting a Cigar Website for my first niche and I AM PUMPED. However, I didn't think about the laws (you have to be at least 21 years old). How do I approach this situation and while we're here what are some good "sidekick" products that would go well with this business (lighters, humidors, cutters, matches, pipes etc)?

That's a very interesting niche.

Do you have a sponsor or guardian who can sign up for affiliate programs and receive the commissions? Your role can be that of managing the website and writing content.

Who do you want to help with cigars. Who would your targeted audience be? How can you help people interested in cigars. What problems can you help them solve?

Here are some general niche tips you can apply to your cigar niche.

A niche is something you feel super excited to write about, a skill you have attained, something that resonates with you. You will want to be focused on one niche. What is it that you want to help a group of people with or what problem do you want to help them solve (group could be age, gender, location, experience level, degree or type of need, etc.)

A niche is not a product, it's a subject that you can help a target audience with. Remember, you are not setting up a shop (store), you will be writing lots of articles about your niche to help your targeted audience.

The importance of a targeted audience is that It's always better to target a specific niche with a specific solution to problems.

Kyles asks us to complete this statement.
'i want to help ____(group) with ______(problem)'

For example. I like camping and what to help campers buy the right equipment to make their camping experience more pleasant and safe.

Camping is a very broad topic with a lot of competition so to eliminate some competition in the beginning so the website has a chance to grow, the focus needs to be a smaller scope. For example essential camping equipment for beginners. Once the website is established and has a good volume, its scope can be expanded to include other things camping related. This is just an example.

Thank you so much for your insight! Thankfully I don’t need a guardian because I’m 25 almost 26. It’s helpful to think of my niche as a subject not a product. Thank you for your quick feedback!

Hi

That's a great niche to be in however broad you may want to narrow it down to a subcategory starting out, otherwise you will find it very hard to get noticed by the search engines and to compete with big authority sites.

Target audience is important too, who would you be writing to, who would benefit most from what you have to offer, once you are able to identify them, you are closer to finding a focused niche.

Once a site starts gaining traction, traffic and authority you can then scale to cover another subcategory.

See example blog post below ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research based article.

When deciding on a niche try narrow it down to a more specific niche, you can ask yourself the following question:

So I want to help people with ____________________ ?

Fill in the blank aand you are going to get closer to a specific audience. Programs

You are needing disclosure if you were to include affiliate links in your site Perhaps age verification as well.
