Steps to Create a Profitable Business in the Golf Niche.
NOTE: This is going to take a few minutes to read, but it is going to be WELL WORTH IT! It is going to lead you to the creation of your OWN successful business online.
You are on this page because you are likely interested in creating a golf business within the "golf" niche. I myself am an avid golfer (been a member of a Jack Nicklaus designed 36 hole track for the last 8 years) in Bear Mountain, Victoria Canada. I also have been running my own online businesses within various niches for the 17 years full time.
For the past 14 years I have been helping others do the same, and today I want to spend some time explaining this "internet thing" to you and showing you the true opportunity that can be revealed within any niche, golf or otherwise through affiliate marketing.
Now before I get into the technicalities of this, I want to make ONE thing very clear. You do not need to have any experience these days, or technical knowledge for that matter, to create and establish a very successful business online. Sometimes you are much further ahead having limited knowledge in fact as you haven't been exposed to the myriad of misinformation out there.
The Breakdown of the Golf Opportunity
Golf is a multi-billion dollar niche, not just within the offline world, but online as well. People are spending BILLIONS online within the golf space and this ranges from clubs, golf attire, coaching programs, swing doctors, buying golf vacations, and purchasing tee times online.
As an affiliate marketer, you can promote many of the most famous brands and companies you are familiar with, those being the likes of Taylor Made, TeeTime.com, Callaway.com, GolfBalls.com, basically if you can buy a product within the offline world, there is almost with 100% certainty that YOU will be able to promote that same product online and earn a percentage commission in the process.
Here are a couple key examples that I want you to appreciate, and it will exhibit exactly how I am going to be teaching you to create a successful and lucrative business online within the golf niche.
Step 1: Johnny searches for "best golf balls for distance" in Google.
***You learn at Wealthy Affiliate how to find lucrative, low competition like this that you can rank for with relative ease in Google.
Step 2: Johnny visits an "affiliate" (YOU) website under this term, and learns about the "best golf balls for distance"
***You learn at Wealthy Affiliate how to build and rank a website under ANY search term. In this case, your website comes up under this term.
Step 3: Johnny clicks a link on the website and then goes on to buy 2 boxes of Titlest ProV1 balls costing approximately $100 through Amazon.
Step 4: The "affiliate" (YOU) gets paid a commission, ranging from 5%-75% depending on the product.
And that is how the process works. There are literally millions of products/services in the golf industry that you are going to be able to promote as an affiliate marketing, which in essence means you simply link people to products and when that person BUYS, you get a commission.
It is a beautiful business model. You don't need any inventory, you don't need to handle any transactions, shipping or support. You are simply LINKING people to something that they usually already want to buy.
The Different Directions You Could Head With You Golf Business
There are literally 100's of different ways you could create a business around the golf niche, but the process of deciding on YOUR direction might not seem so obvious. The "choosing your direction" aspect is something that you are going to be walked through in detail within Lesson 3 of the first training course, but I want to spend a few minutes here showing you potential ideas and aspects of the broader "golf" category, narrowing down your business.
Within the online world it is the specialists that earn all the money online, not the generalists. For that reason, you want to choose something more specific than "golf" if this is in fact the industry you want to build your business around.
- Golf clubs
- golf training
- short game
- driving the ball
- senior golfing
- golfcourses / green fees (by jurisdiction)
- golf coaching
- golf tips and strategies
- sand bunker play
- sand wedges
- gps tracking
- golf accessories
- men's golf attire
- driving range simulators
This is just an example of some targeted niches that you could build a business around. There are currently 4 BILLION people online, actively searching for and buying things online. As an affiliate marketer you can get your "piece of the pie" of the trillions of dollars spent online every year.
Affiliate Programs / Revenue Opportunities
There are MILLIONS of products & services that you will be able to promote through various affiliate programs. Many of these you will be able to search for and find using the Affiliate Programs platform here at Wealthy Affiliate.
Here is a list I quickly created that you can leverage as an affiliate marketer and that you are able to join and promote.
- PrimeSport.com (tickets)
Some of these programs will have 1,000's if not, 100,000's of products you can promote in the golf industry alone. In fact there are over 600,000 products in Amazon alone that you can promote and earn commissions with.
For example, with a company like TaylorMade you will be able to promote all their products and services, including hats, visors, golf balls, gloves, irons, putters, drivers, clothing, and golf bags. You will earn an 9% commission, and average order would quite easily be $500, with many being in the $1,000's. Your take as an affiliate on these would be $45 to potentially $100's in commissions from a single order.
Earning Potential Within the Golf Niche (as an affiliate marketer)
OK, so what does this amount to in terms of revenue potential. I want to give you a bit of perspective, and a breakdown as to what an affiliate marketing income can and WILL look like if work at it (and as we help you build out your business here at Wealthy Affiliate).
I personally like to break things down into a "daily" income. And since your Internet business will operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, your business will never sleep (it is going to be working for you 365 days of the year!).
I am going to base this on an average $30 commission, which is pretty typical in the golf niche. If you sell an order that costs $300 and commission is 10%, you earn $30. If you sell something that is $100 and pays 30% commission, you earn $30.
1 $30 commission per day = $10,950/year
2 $30 sales per day = $21,900/year
5 $30 sales per day = $54,750/year
10 $30 sales per day = $109,500/year
20 $30 sales per day = $219,000/year
And this is based on affiliate marketing alone, and based on $30 sales. There are many products/services in this niche that will pay several $100 per sale.
And that is just one of the ways you can monetize your website, there are many others that we will be walking you through as you move through the training here at Wealthy Affiliate.
