I would go with a dot com if possible. It's Global and depending on what you are promoting you can catch sales worldwide. If its just a particular country, you could lose potential sales.

Just my opinion

Thx Mel I did think that the population even in the USA was a big market group so thx for your reply

You are most welcome Russell! As part of my businesses, I also sell books written in English and they have sold throughout the world. No need making our niche any narrower than it has to be.
You'll have Australians living everywhere as well as people from other countries. My business is based in the USA, but I live in the Philippines.

It is recommended to always go for a dot com domain, however if you are planning to promote locally, you may go with a dot com dot au domain.

However, it has to be registered elsewhere, and pointed to WA servers. WA do not support AU TLDs so you maintain your domain elsewhere while pointed it here to take advantage of the hosting that comes with your subscription.

Hope this helps.

The question is WHO would be your target audience vs Not what you are selling to an audience.

You need aim for ONE focused niche with a specific group of people, I'd go with what's best resonates with me.

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

A niche subject is something you are passionate and genuinely interested in could be a hobby or an interest, and know so well you can write plenty original content about.

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 and you are going to get closer to a specific audience. Your niche research which you'd find in site content > templates:-

Questions People are Asking
How to Solutions
Resources Within the Niche
Products You Can Promote/Review
Affiliate Programs
Top Authority Sites/Competitors
Low Competition Keywords
Popular Magazines / Papers / Periodicals
Advertisement Ideas / Headline Ideas

Essentially you are writing more informational posts so that you do not sound so salesy to Google and if there’s a solution, a detailed analysis review post for your visitors to let them make an informed decision whether to go click your links and go purchase the focused item you proposed to solve their issue.
