Steps to Create a Profitable Business in the Golf Niche.

Last Update: May 30, 2019

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,,,, 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.

best golf balls for assistance

***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
  • putting
  • driving the ball
  • senior golfing
  • golfcourses / green fees (by jurisdiction)
  • golf coaching
  • caddying
  • golf tips and strategies
  • sand bunker play
  • drivers
  • sand wedges
  • gps tracking
  • golf accessories
  • men's golf attire
  • driving range simulators
  • etc.

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.

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.

Great article, Kyle! Golf has always been a huge passion of mine, and I've been an avid golfer pretty much all my life. In high school, and beyond, I played in several tournaments. It's the most fun I can have on any given day!

When I'm ready to start my next niche website, I'll be choosing this one! Kudos to you, my friend! xo

Erin :)!

Yeah, the golf niche is definitely a vast one that is rife with all sorts of opportunity. There are so many segments to this category as well, so it is very easy to narrow down to something that is more specific.

Dear Kyle,
You are speaking my language. I turned the back pasture into a driving range. In college, I took golf for PE thinking it was not an athletic sport. I did not want to join something to make me run but I also did not know I would enjoy it so much. Golf at North Idaho College was a class you can take repeatedly for credit.
I liked it so much I took every term with an instructor who is married to an elite golf course architect. I'll never forget what she said she just had to keep giving me As, as although I have the poorest form, I made the best shots.
I worked toward my home on the Hayden Lake Golf course, and reminisced on time we spent at the Coeur d' Alene Resort. We had a service to comb the beaches and return golf balls way back in the day. We dove and wrastled up as many as we could find, just fun loving kids. So the pros would humor us and give us donations to fetch the balls like little pups.
I finally got set up, game room in the basement PAR 4
When I left the Hayden lake course, it was difficult. You don't know how long I had worked and longed for bathrooms with showers you could play put-put or full swing in without hitting a single wall.
Then grandma fell and broke her knee implant. They were going to sell her property and put her in a nursing home against her will. Well grandpa was an old school entrepreneur who curated this land and put in place provisions so she would be able to stay. Then he died abruptly of Pancreatic cancer.
What grandma needed was a nurse next door.
I abruptly packed up 7 kids 3 weeks postpartum and moved from the golf course on Hayden lake toward an old farm in the armpits of Idaho. I rented a cute house on Red Bud street, while gutting the old farm house like a fish.
With a LOT of work, grandma was able to stay and I made my own not too shabby golf course. With back off my gma on the brain.
I wonder if there is such a thing as a golf nurse that sits in the shadows just ready with a stethoscope for avid golfers who need expert monitoring?. Just kidding!
But anyway, I love this blog and remember your scaling it one awhile back. This touches my heart. Not like, oooooh money money money but here birdie birdie hole in one, that's about par for the course of my story. Hooray fearless leader, golf clap.
I want to give you a tiny constructive feedback. You will want to change you to your on H1 headings as applicable. Maybe it wouldn't matter your form because you make the shots, fearless leader.
I hope you enjoyed reading this. Lol!
Thank you & kind regards,
Nurse Becca

Thank you so much:) still working on this continously. Yep 7 natural births but 3 more adopted. It is a bunch of good kids. Most of them are grown, like a sport team haha! Or small army☺ It has been hard missing them On the road a lot for work recently every week.
You are focused and positive and I know you will be success too... thank you for encouraging me!
I hope you have a great night
Golf is my love but money is what makes that happen, would this be a good venture to help with that?
Dale123 Premium Plus
It sure would! :)
I am looking to build a golf business online, thanks for inviting me Kyle.

I have been an avid golfer for the past 15 years and although I am not scratch yet, I hope to be one day soon haha!

What would you suggest for me as the best direction here at WA, I really like the short game aspect and it is where I have noticed my biggest improvements. Would that be a direction I could head? What sort of products could I promote?
Dale123 Premium Plus
Sounds like a great direction! And the best way to find out what products to promote is to think of products you've purchased personally. When you're ready to get started be sure to follow the training here:
Kyle Premium Plus
I too wish I could be scratch, usually keep to the low 80's unless I totally have a blow up round.

I know that you are going to be able to take your avid interest in golf and turn it into a business and the "short game" aspect sounds like a natural direction for you Jamie.

There will be lots of products and services that you could promote and earn within that category alone, a few off the top of my head would be:

-practice mats
-putting mats
-short game courses/memberships (usually recurring revenue)
-short game practice tools
-golf balls
-whiffle balls

There are likely going to be 1,000's of things you could discuss and 1,000's of things that you could promote in this space, and through time as you establish yourself as an authority, you can move towards the creation of your own products, whether digital memberships, courses, or otherwise.

Lots of opportunity there and let me know if you have any further questions. ;)
Yeah, and there surely are enough of those that I have purchased over the years. It is amazing to think that I can make money selling products that are on other sites. Really cool!
Awesome, thanks for the info Kyle!

Hi, Kyle,

I am not into Golf at all but from your post I could get into it for sure.

This is one fabulous post alone and is just one tiny part of what W.A. is about.

I know you have written many here. You have done all the training too but this post is your newest. Carson and Yourself are so brilliant.

I want to add this into my welcome Messages here at W.A.

Could I and should I, as this post is just so awesome.

From what you have written here I can write about anything even if it's not about Golf.

To be honest I could even become an expert at Golf just by this post alone and all the guidance you have given is nothing short of brilliant..

This post is awesome and thank you Kyle and Carson.. I earn while I earn and I love it... Thank you..

Debs 🙌😊
Kyle Premium Plus
Sure, you can definitely add this in any way that you like.

And you are exactly right. To be a successful affiliate marketer, you need to be good at helping people.

Nobody starts off as an expert in any niche, and you certainly don't need to be an expert to become VERY knowledgeable in a subject and to provide really comprehensive insight into a particular topic.

The golf industry, like most others are rife with opportunity online and working with many in this space over the years, I know just how many facets within it that one can be lucrative with it.
Debs66 Premium
Thank you so much :))

Any time!
