What is a niche?

A niche is simple, it is an audience. An audience looks for stuff online, for example, what are some of the last searches you did in Google. These are ALL niches.

In this video I am going to help you UNDERSTAND what a niche is, how to come up with niches that you are interested in, how to choose a niche...and if you can't come up with your own niche, then I give you a "plan of attack" for getting your business up and running in a pre-selected niche.

Here is what you are going to be doing within this tutorial:

  • Understand what a niche is
  • Finding your very own niche
  • Choosing your initial direction
  • Finding and search for affiliate programs
  • Using Answers.com to uncover niches
  • Understanding Affiliate Bootcamp

A couple of resources I leveraged within this training that you can use for your niche research. These include:

  • Amazon.com
  • Answers.com
  • Google.com
  • Magazines.com

If you have any questions about niches or what direction to go, please let me know and I will be more than happy to help you out.

I am interested in a brand of shoes, “Jordan’s” are being released every week almost. With that being said I believe that could make for many articles and blogs etc... but the thing I don’t understand with the niche. Once the website is up and running there are thousands of different shows out there. With my niche am I looking at one brand of shoe. Or will I be able to guide my audience to all the types of Jordan’s.

As I was getting older every year that went by, I started to focus on 2 topics: Health and Well-being.

So that until today at my age of 77 years I have already registered for a few months the domain for my future Site:

My domain is: "yourhealthandwealth.com" that with the help of WA Community I want to turn into a great Help Site for the whole World.

Thank you very much for the video, Greetings!

Being a 68 year old man, my niche is somewhat chosen for me. This is the most wonderful, yet the most challenging time of my life! If there were ever a time I need to get control of and maintain a healthy lifestyle it is now!

For the past 3 years I've been learning how to get healthy,by changing how and what I eat, to have more energy and stamina. To lose weight and get control of a few chronic lifestyle issues.

I'm having a great bit of success at doing this and I would really appreciate the help at just kinda talking through the next steps as they relate to setting up my site!

Thanks so much for this video!

I was wondering if it is better to start off with a physical product niche (like sportswear) instead of educational or informational niche? I am really interested in online / social media marketing and have been thinking about going that direction. To narrow it down, I could be targeting start ups and small companies. What option do you recommend for a first timer?
Reply
PastorDre Premium
I would probably go with whatever you are passionate about and where you like helping people.

tanzanite Premium
You will have huge competition for that niche, but it doesn't mean you can't do well. Might just take a little longer to get on the first page of Google search. However, what if you narrowed it down to "Compression Sportswear." As a longtime competitive runner and triathlete, I can certainly vouch for the benefits of wearing compression socks and tops.

Just a thought as I look at your possibilities in sportswear. How about youth soccer wear? This is one of the fastest growing sports in the world as kids of all ages and genders love it. Most of all parents find it more affordable as opposed to hockey for instance. I just checked out Amazon and plenty of soccer gear etc. to sell on there. Plus, you could target soccer teams and sell 15 sets of gear at a time for example.

Loved the initial directive on choosing of a niche. I do feel that the incredibly overused term of choosing your passion could be removed from the language for a while. I'm not finding very much passion around me these days, in fact I believe my niche is going to relate to this very condition of middle age and not feeling the burn.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, it could be removed, but it is the natural direction . Those that say your "passion" will not lead to success, I would argue. But I would also argue that if you are passionate about "business", you could evoke that across any niche as I have done over the years.

You can head in absolutely any direction you want and be very successful online, you just have to evoke passion within that niche.

I've heard it said that a .com extension is like having beachfront property as opposed to .net, .ca, etc. etc. As I plan on having an information website, I was thinking of using a .info extension. Does that mean I will have fewer search results on Google? Is it a bad idea to stray from a .com extension?
Reply
AHost-Madsen Premium
If you are creating an information website then it is perfectly acceptable to use a .info
I see many successful YouTubers who have websites that are .net, .org, etc.
What you can do is try it out. If you do not have success with a .info after a few months you can redirect the site to a new one. (of course you will have to create another site) But in essence that means that if someone clicks on your .info site they will automatically go to your new site.
Hope that helps!

Hello Tanzanite. An internet marketing teacher, MikeZ, once suggested that you should try to register your name with all of the .com, .net, et al, if you find your name is not already taken you could have them all.

Things on my mind are "Dealing with Obesity" and "Health Supplements".
I am really not sure that this will fetch a lot of money because I don't know how many people are facing this problem. But I had a personal experience in the past and I suppose it will be nice to build on that.
I need to figure out how to go about this for the purpose of driving traffic to do affiliate program.

Sure, either direction. If you choose "health supplements", you might want to narrow it down. You will want to choose the audience, versus the product. Who do you want to help and what do you want to help them with?

The focus will be on overweight especially as a result of belly fat. Using recommended fitness exercises, fitness products, supplements where necessary and more importantly some counseling regarding lifestyles.

Hi,
I can perfectly understand the niche concept for the services (like affiliate program for example or alike). And I think, that it is the best way to start, to see how and why and what. I will go that direction for sure.
But when we come to products - everybody today knows about either Amazon or Aliexpress or alike. If someone needs a product, why on Earth he/she/them would go to some website (even if it is MY website) instead of going directly to Amazon website?
Reply
merlynmac Premium
Almost everyone does a little research before the go buy an item for the first time. That's where your site and authority come in. I actually has a local guy ring my drone site and came to my house asking me for advice and even training. All because I had built trust with him via my site.
Reply
ogal59 Premium
So it means, that in order to achieve some results, your niche should not be just "product", but something more complex (like further training or advise), right? otherwise people goes straight to Amazon?
Reply
merlynmac Premium
Right...if all you do is churn out reviews, you'll miss a whole bunch of potential visitors. My drone site has a lot of reviews but it also has a lot of informational articles, how-to's and troubleshooting tips. Much of my traffic comes to those non-review posts first and then the visitors see my reviews and recommendations secondary.
Reply
ogal59 Premium
Thanks. That is how I also see it. It is just a little bit more complicated then selecting any one product from million others...
Reply
Dale123 Premium
Personally I don't think I've ever gone to Amazon directly, because I always assume there is something better than the product I am thinking about buying, so I look for reviews first. I go through niche sites (just like what you'll be building here) and then generally make purchase decisions based on what they tell me may be the best option.

On the other hand there are often times when I simply don't know what product to buy & I need help - so I will search something like "what tool does X job"... And then I will come across an informative article of how to complete the task which generally recommends the tool I need for the job... And I'll buy it based on their recommendation :)

Think of this as an opportunity where you can explore any interest you may have. What would you want people to see you succeed with? What is something you know you would love to teach to others? What do you picture yourself having accomplished when you think ahead in 20 years time? You have the chance to find out what you are all about and what will make you feel fulfilled.

The book of faces is a good vehicle for driving traffic, but I don't know if you can do as much on Facebook as you can on your own website. I'm not a fan of Facebook, because I like security, but I think you should continue with the training here so you can see the difference between Affiliate Marketing and Facebook. Neither are going to provide you a quick fix for residual income issues...

ericcantu Premium
When you're looking to make sales, the key is driving traffic to your product. With a facebook page, how do you get people to find it? How do people know it exists? Paid ads? What kind of return do you get on paid ads on FB? On Amazon, how would you get people to find your product? How will people know it's there?

Driving targeted traffic is the key to any business. That's why the training at WA is so powerful. You're taught here exactly how to drive traffic to your content. This means you publish your posts once and as you're continuing to build other posts Google is sending traffic to them over and over and over again. That's the best kind of residual income I know how to make :)

Reply
merlynmac Premium
The only advice I have is don't spread yourself too thin. You want to become an authority in each niche. To do that, you need to dedicate considerable time and effort into each one. I suggest you start with just one and work it to the point where it doesn't need so much attention and then consider starting another one. Just keep in mind, as you devote time to your new niche, time is pulled from your old one.

So I was thinking about some niche ideas...
Ideally I would like to make the kind of website like the snack helmets one in the tutorial.
The reason is not so much laziness but the fact that I never imagined myself as much of a writer, and I don't really know if I'm good at producing a lot of content but I would give it a shot.
Browsing Amazon I found a few niche ideas and then it hit me, the more expensive the product the higher the comission, so I would really like to try drones, do you think it could work?

The few subjects I know about and would gladly produce content for are video games, movies like Star Wars which I love and has a lot of cool memorabilia and children's toys, or tv shows like Game of Thrones (can't wait to see the premiere today).
These are subjects I actually know about and would love to write about, but I am willing to learn about pretty much anything.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated!

I humbly suggest finding a niche that you are passionate about. Then research the heck out of it so that you can give good advice on that product. I write my content as if I was talking to someone next to me. I am sure you are good at making conversation. Just write like that. If you need help, dictate your article into your phone voice recorder and then just copy it into print. Hope this helps.

Have really enjoyed the training...so far. I wanted to run my idea for a niche past you. I'm thinking "Mental Wellness". Narrowing it down a bit, I would focus on "self-care" (to begin with) - which promotes mental wellness. Too broad? Too vague? Not a money maker? What do you think? ...and 'yes', I have experience in this field: i'm considered an expert. Thanks in advance for your help!!

ericcantu Premium
I'm an absolute believer in what Kyle says in the training that just about any niche can be profitable when it's something you're passionate about, especially with your expertise. I think you could reach and help a lot of people. You could seamlessly integrate the promotion of books within your content as well as any number of products and services that have to do with self care that would benefit your audience the most.
I say go for it. Every post you write will be about something specific, so even with a broad-ish niche like mental wellness or self care you would be targeting a specific area within in.

It's not that different from my approach with the broad "make money online" niche. With each post I'm writing about something very specific within that larger niche. :)

Thanks so much Eric! Can't tell you how passionate I am about this topic. Utilizing mental wellness aspects have allowed me to really turn my client's issues around. You're spot on re: the products I could lead people to, as well as (what I call) sub-categories of mental wellness - which are many!

Are you trying to find your Niche?

I usually like to ask to questions when finding someone niche or power spot.

1. If you could do anything and knew you wouldn't fail what would you do?
2. If you could do anything and money didn't stop you what would you do?

The answer to these two questions usually points to someones passion.

I say it is good to do a niche that you are passionate about.
Hope this helps if you are trying to decide on a Niche.

I said in my last comment I was thinking of 3 types of niche, small business help, twins and autism. After reading some of the comments from you wonderful people and seeing that I will need to be adding content etc on my site I think I may go for the Twins option. Personally I have spent a lot of time lately researching this subject and looking for twin products so maybe I can use that to help others. As I said just becoming a grandparent to twins also makes me passionate about it. Niche sorted yay!!!!!

Great choice! I have no idea what I would have done if any of my children had been a twin lol.

I have a couple of ideas for my niche and am not really sure which route to take. Firstly working as a Virtual Assistant I enjoy helping small businesses find ways to run more efficiently etc and help them find solutions to problems so I could take this route. The other two ideas I have are Twins - I have just become a grandmother to twins and am finding searching for twin related products etc interesting and lastly Autism. I have a stepson who is Autistic and love looking up ideas to help him. The choice is so great. Can I start with one and progress to others? Should I start with something business related to help my current business or go for something outside that? So many decisions to make.

They both sound like they are a passion for you, so I think you will be good doing either one.

HelenpDoyle Premium
All of these are pretty valid and you have experience with them. That puts you ahead right away. At first choose the one you know really well and are passionate about. As you are learning, you then just need to learn the mechanics of website building. You already have enough, at your finger tips, to start writing your articles.

Once you are comfortable with your first website then think about which of the remaining two you want to do next.

Just remember this takes work, so set you pace to match. You don't want to get frustrated trying to do too much at once.

Hi Debbie, interesting ideas, all of which sound good. You’ll be best picking something you have knowledge of and an affinity for. If you really love your job and aren’t looking for a change then that could be good for you, as long as you think you can monetize it.

Twins related products is another smashing idea, there’ll be lots of opportunities there I guess for product reviews. Autism comes under the health niche which is always quite a good one too. It has lots of sub-niches to specialise in, but competition for keywords might be high.

Kyle will tell you to pick ONE of those options and build on that. Don’t be tempted to open 3 sites, you should open ONE and focus on that 100%.

Hope this helps,

Kyle says in the video to choose either your own niche OR to promote WA but he does not recommend doing both. Is there a reason for this? It seems to me that it may be easier just starting out to promote WA to create some traffic coming in and perhaps even have your membership here pay for itself this way before branching out and building other areas of interest as time goes on. Has anyone else done this?
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - the training is quite in-depth and it could be overwhelming to do both courses, requiring two different websites. You should start with one, and of course it is your choice which one. Bear in mind, you will be writing a lot of content for your website. In some ways it is easier to start with your own niche, as you will know more about it.
Reply
Seabee Premium
You should really focus on one niche at as time; for times sake. Promoting WA would be a full time gig, just like promoting your own "product" would be a full time thing. You CAN do both, but starting out, it's better to focus 100% on one niche.

So the niche I would like to start with is travelling! I love travelling and I want to build something for that but I know that travelling is so broad of category.

Hi - you really do need to narrow down your niche. Is there a particular aspect of travel you have experience of? Travel with children, travel by rail, travel in Europe etc.

Hi :)

Here is something you could do: Find a narrower sub niche of traveling like some have suggested.

BUT...when it comes time to get your own domain name, make the domain name a little broader.
Then you can continue in the narrow niche until you are getting lots of traffic and slowly broaden your niche (still in the travel niche) over time as you want.

Then you won't feel so limited forever.

Yes, you'll write about things you know that will help a certain group of people. Then when you've built up an audience, you'll recommend products that will help them.

A niche is a group of people with a common interest, who hang out in the same places, and buy the same stuff. Start with something that you already know a lot about or are really interested in learning.

You have a good grasp on the idea however, you may want to write your own articles/posts instead of purchasing someone else's. What they write may not line up with what you have in mind.

my niche is fashion, bags and shoes. I love shopping online, and I have a big passion on knowing what design clothes goes well with our culture, especially clothes that is formal, chic and unique style. prices on my arrange is affordable for everyone.

I like to help schoolies when they need to choose their dress for formal night, age range from 15 to 25. no one wants to pay few hundreds to thousands of dollars for a formal dress which maybe only wear it once or twice. so my price for them will be range from $70 to $250

shoes range is sandal heels and high heels, boots - all real leathers price range from $69 to $170

bags - looking for branded bags

Yoga equipment can include things like mats, mats you can roll up and have a carrying strap, mats that come in many colors, etc. You don't have to just focus on mats, though.
Although there is not a lot of equipment for yoga, you can talk about comfortable clothing to wear - which material stretches with your body, headbands, leggings, some people might use ankle or wrist weights for the added strengthening.
OR - you could talk about the different types of yoga, the chakras, etc.

I will try to answer all your questions so that you have a better understanding of WA.

Q1 - I see that you are only a starter member. If you choose to upgrade to Premium, you would pay $19 the first month and $49 each month thereafter. There are many benefits to upgrading. You can see them here: Q2 - You would need to do a Google search. Just search affiliate programs and tons will come up. Electronics are very popular and could be high ticket as well as digital products that require a monthly subscription; you would get paid each month.

Q3 - As a starter the purpose of the two websites is one for each course - OEC and Bootcamp.
It is not recommended to have more than one niche to begin with because you may become overwhelmed. It is also recommended to start OEC before Bootcamp.

Q4 - I'm not sure I understand your last question. You are taught to create a website in OEC and you are taught how to promote WA in Bootcamp. You choose your domain and branding. You have the ability to create/purchase as many or few websites as you want.

I hope my answers help you. I have to step out for a few hours. If someone else answers you, great.

If you still want MY help, PM me.

Follow the training...it is all explained in detail. It is a good idea to visit the Live Events section and search adding pictures. There are step-by-step instructions on how to do this.
When you created your website with wordpress or siterubix, there is an option for add images.
Follow the training...that will help you!

You can definitely head in the fashion direction. When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

If I want to go into the digital product niche I would do the bootcamp is that right? If so, why do you want us to learn just one of the two methods? Is one like selling products amazon etc and then the other affiliate marketing? Guess I am confused on the difference.

Hi :)
The Online Entrepreneur Certification course is to learn how to make a website in any niche you want, including digital products. Whereas the Bootcamp is specifically for learning to promote Wealthy Affiliate.

Just know that while going through the Certification course you will find that you might want to narrow down your niche a little. Digital Products is a little broad and you will find it very competitive. By narrowing to a more specific type of digital product for your niche, you have a better chance to succeed.

Bootcamp is to promote WA only.
A niche website is to promote whatever you want: electronics, fashion, food, pets, makeup, etc.
It is always best to start with only one or the other because it is very easy to get overwhelmed.
They are both methods of affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is using your own website (which you create here) to promote products or services.

I have a number of ideas/areas for niches. Now need to narrow it down and decide what to focus on, and pick one to start off with Performing a Google Search as described in the training video is helping immensely with making that decision.

A quick note to share that I learned elsewhere -- if you aren't very knowledgeable on the niche you want to specialize in, search for a book or two on Amazon and read them for a quick ramp up. You'll become "expert" on the subject matter over time after building/promoting the niche, researching content and writing blogs, etc.

Soooo looking forward to having great success with affiliate marketing!

Great advice! Thank you for sharing that tid-bit of information.
Another way to narrow down your niche is to use the Jaaxy tool. Search the keyword of your topic and see what pops up. Often times, suggestions will show that you never thought of.

Best of luck on your journey to success!

You don't have to pay right now. You can start for free and pay when you can. It is possible to make money before you go to the Premium plan. All you need to start is a desire to do better in life, and you have that, so let's get the ball rolling. Sign up for the Starter plan today!

You can go through the first 10 lessons without paying and still get 2 free websites. If you work at it, maybe when you have those 2 (or 1 to start) sites up, you will then be in a position to upgrade :)

One of the great things about WA's program is that you can go a long way without putting out any money. Even once you do pay, there is a 30 day guarantee where you can get your money back if you decide it's not for you.

I hope you find your way towards being in a more financially secure place very soon!

One my many obstacles is my indecisiveness. I'm really interested in music and playing guitar/bass, so I could sell instruments and send people to links helping them improve their playing etc. I'm also very interested in photography so cameras, accessories tips and advice....product testing? I guess ultimately I'll do both. Any advice?
Thanks
Reply
AHost-Madsen Premium
It is not advisable to do both. At least not at the same time. Unless you are well-versed in affiliate marketing you
may become overwhelmed. Unless you have tons of free time to dedicate to EACH site,
you will be short-changing the quality of the sites.
Pick the thing you are most passionate about...one that if you were sitting at a coffee shop and a friend asked you what's your favorite past time, you could talk for hours about it.

Hope that helps!

Hi ... it’s good to be thinking of a few things all at once it means you have plenty to get stuck into right away . Don’t worry about what you should be doing first or last .. just grab one thing and make a start .. it’s like unwrapping a present ... at the start you have a rough idea what it might be but as you unwrap more it gets more & more clearer .. thats exactly how the training works ..,your niche and what direction you eventually take will get clearer to you as you progress through the training ...so don’t worry too much just make the start with one of your ideas ...i love the sound of music so that seems a pretty good choice to start with ... ALL THE BEST !

Two great niches. Lots of competition, but great niches. Multiple websites are quite normal around here. Sounds like you have the expertise in both fields to produce quality content. That's what will separate you from the pack. However, as Amy so eloquently put it, to attempt to do them both at the same time is affiliate marketing suicide. Get the one you are most passionate about up and running and once you are comfortable with it, launch the other one. You'll do great. I feel it in my bones!

I struggled with this a bit prior to watching the video because in doing research on my niche I discovered the ideas I had have already been done. I also had already chosen the products I would promote. But in learning I could search for affiliate programs + my niche I found a ton that I never knew existed!

I'm working on a site for holistic solutions for anxiety. I've been working on this issue as a face-to-face therapist/coach for years and really want to bring the biz online. There are some people out there doing it but it's certainly not over-saturated and this program is so far opening my mind to new directions I hadn't thought of.

I am leaning toward an Organic foods and supplements niche. I believe people are waking up to the health dangers in the foods we eat and believe this would be a good niche. Going to give this a bit more research and thought before I jump into it. I currently consume about 85-90% Organic, non-GMO foods, so it is a category that I am very familiar with.

Yes, you can head in that direction. What aspect of organic foods or supplements do you want to help people out with though. There are lots of genres and segments to these niches that you can further drill down into.

Yes! Now think about WHO you want to target - I have a wellness center and have been working in the field of holistic health for several years. There are people who have been doing it awhile ("advanced") and then people just starting to learn. Which group do you most want to work with? Or say, do you want to appeal to mothers who are trying to figure out what the heck to feed their families? Or focus on recipes and how to make the food? So many ways to go on this! In my work I have seen a major breakdown though is between the "advanced" and "beginner" folks - very different markets seeking different info. Beginners may want more info (eg digital products) and easy places to start, whereas advanced will want to know the purest products/foods and are willing to work harder to find or make them. Hope that helps!

Hi - the Bootcamp training is for those who intend to promote WA itself, the money making online business.

Hi - you don't need your own products for affiliate marketing.

The Entrepreneur course is for those who want to have a website based on their own niche, their own interests and can join affiliate programs such as Amazon. People click on a link on your website to buy products from Amazon and you get a commission.

The Bootcamp is for those interested in the moneymaking online business who will be promoting WA itself and will be persuading other people to join this platform.

Hi Tom, if you're into golf and home improvement, you may not realize how *huge* each of those niches are...! (And very lucrative, too.) Although I'm not into golf, I've done enough internet marketing to know how hot and evergreen it is, and it's one of the big money niches as well. Home improvement is not really a 'niche' but a gigantic Market. There are thousands of sub-niches under home improvement (everything from marble counter-tops to gas grills to central vac systems...)--the list is endless. Based on your comment, I would suggest you explore both these niches to narrow your focus, then decide which one to *start* with. Once that business is up, running, and earning-- then you can circle back and get going on your 2nd winner. Good luck! ~All the best, David

Hi - if you are doing the BootCamp Training, that is more specific to a WA website, whereas the Online Entrepreneur targets niche websites such as your camping suggestion.

A question I've had for some time about niches is what is the best way to know if a particular niche or sub-niche will fill a need in the market so that we do not spend too much time trying to sell a product only to find out that there aren't any customers who want your product.

this is one of the reasons you are shown that it is best to choose a niche you know - this way you know the problems you have and can help others with your knowledge.
if you are going for a niche you don't know them find where the niche hang out- what they talk about- what are their problems- and can you help them.
just remember you don't buy a product - you buy a solution.

Skydancer1 Premium
Nicu,

Thanks for reaching out.

When you sign up for an Affiliate Program from Amazon or Clickbank or anywhere really, you will be given some sort of "affiliate link" you may need to log in to a marketing portion of the site and get your links in there or most likely you will receive an email with instructions. Then once you have your Affiliate link you can use that as the link to add to images of your products or in a post in the text.

The training here should show you how it works, but the best way is to add your link.

You have a WA Affiliate link already Go to $ icon at the top then Program details, then your link is at the top of the screen.

I'm sure others will have better comments for you on this but I hope this helps

Kyle shows how the links work in the training. I'm not sure which lesson. Focus on your content first. You can go back and add Affiliate links strategically afterwards.

Jay has done some great demos in the video webinars about this and how it all works. Sometimes it is best to see it from someone else first. You need to be Premium to access them incase you decide to go that route.

Keep learning and apply what is taught and you will be fine.

Hi.. video talks about choosing a niche based on your passion..: then goes on to show baby niches... there maybe money in baby rugs, etc... but how many people out there would have a passion for baby rugs? How could you make a site that ranks for baby rugs. Guess I’m confused to date... what do we do? Pick a niche that seems small enough that we can get it ranked and then simply post articles/blog posts about it or do we build a larger site based on a niche we are passionate about? I’ve been around awhile and it is hard to get ranked in google. So how would you do so with a niche like baby rugs? That would take a lot of writing/posting about a small topic? Then you talk about fitness equipment... ankle weights... are you suggesting someone does a site just dedicated to ankle weights, etc? Just looking for clarification. Thanks

Hi Robb
what Kyle is teaching is everyone is looking for something online to buy, sell, learn, teach and more and when you choose a niche it should be of interest to a lot of people
For example- lets say you chose Tennis for beginners. You could have best shoes, best rackets, best coaching
Saddles- Best Saddles for Western riding for men woman and children
It is about picking a subject you enjoy and creating a website based on this subject and you can choose to learn about anything as all the information you can find online is there to help you grow
I hope this helps

Thanks Vicki... guess the thoughts in my head right now is how broad is to broad to get ranked and how small is to small for a niche to be profitable and be able to produce enough content about. The study of the Football Snack Helmets seemed really small of a niche and I was curious how he got ranked for it, or was it so small that he was the only one trying to get ranked for it and was able to. I'm sure it will all come together in the training videos for me. Thanks again. Cheers Robb

Hi RobbCorbett, my take from choosing a niche video, was that he was using those items as examples, from a broader subject matter. That way, you can bring in different sub-items, which pertain to the larger subject, at later dates down the road. Success to you.

Originally, I planned to do something in global warming. I was very ambitious too, but not in a commercial sense. The site I envisioned would have struck fear in the heart of even an American marine! But I have put that on the back-burner because you don't really involve yourself in that field merely to make money, it's much too painful. So my first niche will be in pet's products, we have two dogs, three cats and my wife has her horse stabled not far away. To remind me of more important issues I have used, as my image, the last known photo of the Titanic sailing to a watery grave. It is is metaphor and quite melancholic isn't it?
Reply
Hjuby Premium
Actually I can totally see this being a niche! You could market to parents and teachers trying to explain global warming to kids (probably would be videos and books I guess). OR I think a great one would be something positive that addresses the problem vs. magnify it in people's eyes - give them some hope LOL. So maybe a site on how to minimize your carbon footprint for example. You could promote digital/informational products as well as actual products. A lot of people want to minimize their footprint but don't know how and don't feel they have the time to do all the research on every product. What if you did the research for them and told them which products to buy?

I've always been into knives. There are many different types of knives but I'd hate to narrow it down to just 1 type of knife. I know if I were shopping on the web for knives I would want a variety but with a choice to search for a certain type of knife if I so choose. I guess my question is do I have to narrow it down to one type? Doing that just doesn't seem to make sense to me.

You would narrow it down to a particular use... For example, somebody shopping for a bread knife likely isn't going to want to buy a military Swiss army knife. So some example niches would be "hiking knives" or "kitchen knives" or "camping knives" etc...
Reply

but if you were shopping you would be shopping for a type - so a folder or a legal carry in xx or a bread knife.
i would seperate it into different types and create a general knife site, but blog about the one type until you are seen as someone who knows about that catagory.
remember that general knive stores have been around for ages, you will be up against them - so you could go for hunting knives or outdoor knives or camping knives.
this will narrow your niche, but allow you o create articles about a lot of different types of knives.
good luck

type knives into jaaxy and see if you an come up with a few sub niches that you would be able to create a complete site about

+I have at least 5 niches that i'm considering. alternative health is a passionate one, dogs especially great Danes, poodles and Dalmatians. Children's guidance to prevent suicide and natural hair and skin products. Ruben T2 what are some of the things that interest you. You don't have to have just one niche. are there things in life that really excite you or make you angry. Search it out in your mind and you will discover your niche.

I think I found a niche that I think I will enjoy. I am praying that it is not only profitable but also helpful to others. It was easy to find after Carl mentioned that for the amount of persons on the internet shopping; everyone can be successful but choosing what you like will certainly put more love in what you do. All the best to you all.

All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 3.75 BILLION people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

I am going to make a list of things that I am interested in and have experience in doing. I will then narrow down my selection after researching the internet and make my final selection, to begin with. The others will be kept to explore future possibilities of incorporating into an opportunity. Some of my ideas are DIY gifting projects, products which assist with caring for loved ones, other medical opportunities for which assist with one's illness, etc. All of these are broad spectrums so research will need to be completed before choosing one to begin with. I will dedicate the time to make my choice, Thank you for your insight and I will ask questions for guidance is needed.

That sounds like a good idea, you have a lot of different directions you could potentially head. It just comes down to choosing the one that interests you the most. You can always diversify down the road and be involved in many different niches, but I recommend you focus on ONE first before you focus on many.

Yeah, niches, niches. If one contemplates the broad range of niches it makes one nearly dizzy.
Specially if you have a great variety of interests. I have an product from Clickbank for immediate promotion and furthermore a niche that may be interesting for people around my age.
As you said, the first niche do not necessary be the last one ;-) in other words, life changes continuously and we should be open to inspiration and the resulting ideas...

Help, please. I am more so interested in promoting links to affiliate websites and making money off of those referrals. I'm talking about survey websites, etc. Is it that something possible to do without a website and niche?

I also have my own virtual call center with a company called Arise Virtual Solutions and I struggle to sign people up for that as well.

TommyPotter Premium
The purpose of the site and the niche is to attract traffic "highly focused" on a product or service and with great possibilities of buying whatever you offer.

Yes, you can promote affiliate links without a website, but it would be a much broader audience with a much lower chance of response (in some cases practically null), and many sites like Facebook do not like that you post affiliate links, but links to your blog from where you can tunnel your potential consumers.

I just watched the video and it gave me some ideas. I have been marketing online for awhile without very much success. I know I can do this. The 2 niches I'm thinking of is Affiliate marketing with Wealthy Affiliates. Also one of my boy's is autistic. He is 10 years old, and nonverbal. I was thinking about Autism as another one. I'm just not sure how to break the austism niche down. Any suggestions.

Just starting out. Thinking about going boot camp route. I do have interests such as cats. Thinking about a problem my mom has currently with the cat going outside of the litter box. I don't know enough to continously write about them.

I have two huge pokemonfans and one not so huge, second idea was gift ideas for pokemon fans. I do play pokemon go, but again I'm not indepth with it such as my husband who constantly watches videos on how to do things in pomemon go and lets go. The vids are always current with what is coming up.

Looking at all the content for just those two ideas, everyone else seems to has it covered. Pokemon gift ideas and cat problems. Even thinking about the bootcamp portion, it seems like everything is saturated by much more knowledgeable people than me.

Or am I missing something? Where should I start?
Reply
merlynmac Premium
You can start out with the Bootcamp if you want but I recommend going through the process before you promote it.

Pick one of your passions and go with it. Saturation isn't everything. Remember, the idea is to set yourself apart and become an authority in your niche.

there is plenty of room for you in the cat market - especially when you have a problem to solve.
ok, you don't know enough now, but are you willing to learn? do the research and make it easy for others?
essentailly that is what you are doing, making others lives easier.
if you go with the bootcamp you are going into a very competative niche and unless it is a passion then you end up resenting it.
i know i did at the start.
i went back to the oec and created a site about 3d printing.
it might be worth looking at the first site as one you will make mistakes on - so choose something you like and know about but don't be suprised if you need to shift focus partway down the course.
but have a browse in the top search bar for niches and you will find loads of training from members on it.
i hope you manage to select a niche you like.
phil
if you are part of your niche or know people who have gone through your chosen niche then it makes it easier to talk to your niche and know what they are going though - another reason to stay away from bootcamp till you have built a site through the oec.
you can always go back and do the bootcamp in the future.

If you're having problems figuring out a niche the best thing to do is look at your own interests and think about the things you put in your Google search box. We all know something about something. Personally I know a lot about all natural products, where to find them, how to make them, what works and what doesn't and why...However, I don't know much about new technologies or body building or video games , etc. So if I'm looking for a product I am going to go to someone who knows about it...What are you knowledgeable about?

Hi guys. I make a living as a sports trader/matched bettor/gambler working from home. This is the route i wish to go down and already have a couple of affiliate links from the site that got me started in my career. I feel if i could drive traffic to a blog and possibly join other betting exchange affiliate programmes,it may be a good niche? Never written a blog though!!
Reply
feigner Premium
nothing too it - just think what you need to do to learn how you do the matched betting and write it down rather than talking to yourself in your head.
finding your voice and a direction for your site which is narrow enough for people to be interested is one of the hardest parts.
and once you get into the swing of writing a bit daily then it should be no problem.
worth giving it a go.
start with the level one training for the oec and if you stay free for a while then try out the level one in bootcamp.
and have a look around at what the community has created.
hopefully you will be persuaded to join the premium membership, although once you do you cannot go back to a free member on that account.
is it worth it - i would say yes.
even if you don't continue as a blogger you will have learnt a lot of new skills and opened up masses of online job opportunities.
good luck Ray

Got some good ideas out of this video. I've heard of "drilling deep" when doing keyword research. It's not how large an audience you can reach; it's how specific an audience you can target. When you get to keywords that show a monthly search volume of, say 1k to 10k searches, the more likely you will find people who /want to buy that particular product or service.

Hello I understand the idea of choosing a niche based on my interest/ passion. However, I maybe interested in a niche that is already saturated, and maybe difficult for a newbie to gain traction in. Isn't rather important first to do a thorough niche research before picking one? For example, finding out how competitive your niche of interest is? How easy / difficult is it for my website to rank in the top 10 google results page? For one thing, I believe that it is discouraging for any new marketer to build a website and regularly upload quality content without any ROI for more that 2 years because you have a chosen a difficult niche to crack?!
Reply
merlynmac Premium
You have valid points. I'm sure you have multiple passions. Go ahead and do the research but keep this in mind. Picking a niche related to a passion of yours has several advantages from a learning standpoint:

1) As it's a passion of yours, you already know a lot about it. This means less research (aka less tedious work) as you're learning the steps.

2) Again, since it's a passion, you tend to want to work on it vs the "Ug, I have to work now" mentality. You might even find it fun.

3) You already know where to look, what to buy, and so on. You probably already know good resources, people/organizations to reference, etc.

Keep this in mind.... Even saturated markets can be profitable. You just need to set yourself apart from the rest and become an authority in it. Traffic will come. Yes, there may be competition (there always is) but, someone has to come out on top at some point.

I hear you Merlynmac and thank you for the insightful reply. But as a new affiliate/ entrepreneur one of the most important milestone in any business is the validation that the process or business model does work (one can make money) and the sooner that happens the more motivated one becomes to work harder.
Based on your experience, how long does a new website take to rank in Google in a fairly competitive niche?
Once again thank you for the reply.
Reply
merlynmac Premium
I'll use my drone site as an example as there's quite a bit of competition there. It took me about 6 months to rank for some keywords. The trick is to produce quality content consistently. I noticed a big drop when I went on vacation and didn't have any posts scheduled during that time.

Once the trust is established with search engines, activity and engagement really help.

I'd say 6 to 12 months is the sweet spot for starting to rank.

How about that? 😇 I know this would be a great thing to be part of it, but at the same time, trend is one of the competiting aspect to be considered in the world of business. Haha.

Hello, I was thinking of creating an online video course for Fantasy Basketball for Beginners. I was never really into watching sports, but I did enjoy watching the NBA from time to time. My friends randomly wanted to start an NBA Fantasy League one year and invited me to join. I had no idea what I was doing and I ended up 6th that year. The following I year spent about a month researching articles and strategies online on how to draft the best team possible and how to manage your roster throughout the season. I came in 4th. The next year I came in 1st. This year I'm in the top 3 and hoping to win it all again. For my video course I'm planning on putting together maybe a 2 week course on strategies or a guideline to prepare them before the draft as well as ways to manage their roster throughout the season. I'm really wanting to narrow it down for the beginner who just wants to play with a group of friends, not so much competitive play for with pros or for money. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

My niche come from my career. Self-Diagnosis and troubleshooting with iPhones, iPads, smartphones, computers and home networks. This is actually quite simple for many to do but there are so many out there that are intimidated by technology. The longer many are intimidated the bad guys win and continue to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting or unknowing person. People need to know some simple steps they can take to protect themselves. It very well could mean the difference between recognizing a scam on your device when you see it and getting you or a family member out of harms way. I plan on building my niche around this concept of Online Protection and Security in simple terms that many can understand and apply themselves.

I would love to know your thoughts on this concept. What do you think?

Hey everyone! So my situation is a little strange but I wanted some opinions. This is my 3rd time back at WA. Each time I have tried going the route of choosing a niche (i have tons of things I am passionate about) but I had a lot of trouble narrowing it down since everything I thought of is SO broad. I spent SO much time on the niche and trying to create a very catchy and nice website I kind of lost my way and gave up. I was thinking about going the route of BOOTCAMP and promoting WA however from the videos and what I see people posting it seems that's not the route that is really suggested. If I take what I am MOST passionate about it would be

mental health, depression, motivational quotes, dating, swimming, spinal health, and wellness.

Now each of those can kind of relates to each other, swimming helps your mental health and depression, its great exercise and great on the spine. It is a great way to lose weight and a lot of people who want to get back into dating want/need to lose weight which helps with their overall wellness etc.

I guess my question is HOW do I decide if I want my niche to be "Network Spinal Analysis" (which is a form of spinal therapy that also heals you inside) swimming benefits, mental health, and depression etc? I was thinking if I choose Network Spinal Analysis that is the least broad and I can touch on each of my other interests in blogs. Like how NSA has been linked to helping depression and mental illness. Then I can talk about how swimming is great for the spine...

I know this is super long but PLEASE I appreciate suggestions feedback and what everyone thinks about me just going the Bootcamp route and maybe later on after that's up and going create my own target niche website. I just don't want to do this a 4th time the same way I continuously failed at lol.

THANKS, EVERYONE!

I think sometimes we put so much pressure on ourselves to come up with the perfect niche that it can lead to inaction. I think the "Network Spinal Analysis" sounds good, so long as you think you can write about 50-60 articles about it. Like you said though, you can write content about related fields or related topics that impact spinal health which should really increase your options.

I'd say though, don't worry about perfection, get something out there and start creating content. IF you find that the content is too narrow or too broad, you're still gaining valuable experience that will help you create a better website the second time around.

Here's to your success!

I like the Network Spinal Analysis as well. I guess my question is once I choose a niche do my articles ONLY have to be on that topic i.e. Network Spinal Analysis? Or can I write articles on other topics like depression, benefits of swimming, mental health, weight loss and etc because each one of those could fall under spinal health and relate back to Network Spinal Analysis.

The second niche I want is Yoni Eggs. That relates back to my passion for natural healing, I could write about what a yoni egg is used for and the spiritual journey as well, different essential oils, natural healing remedies, yoni steaming, and i feel like with that niche i could write articles about Network Spinal Analysis since the Yoni Egg is used for many purposes with the main one being to heal yourself from within and that's exactly what NSA does.

I love swimming and was going to choose swimming exercises or swimming goggles but I couldn't really think of many ways I would write on that.

Which do you like best Yoni Eggs - with my direction to talk about self-healing, depression, healing inside and out and etc. Or Network Spinal Analysis? I only like Yoni Egg because I feel that relates much more to emotional healing, essential oils which I am obsessed with, using sage and palo santo to attract positive vibrations, healing stones, and my experience and SO MUCH MORE. '

I feel like my NICHE is self-healing/natural healing and YONI EGGS and/or Network Spinal Analysis is just one thing in that category I would talk about. I think I am not understanding exactly the purpose of niche.....

I think what you really need to think through is what would your target audience be interested in reading about and what would build trust with your audience. When I looked up more about Network Spinal Analysis, I found this:

"Network Spinal Analysis takes chiropractic care one step further. Instead of dealing with the subluxations on a physical level, they treat them on a mental level as well. Network chiropractic allows the nervous system to better communicate with the body, expelling any negative interference causing the pain."

If this was something that I was learning about, and I came to your site, I might want to know more about how this works, what these practitioners do, how to find a good practitioner, what questions to ask when choosing a practitioner. But I also might want to know about other ways that I can take care of my spine, how can I improve mind-body connection, what other tools allow the nervous system to communicate better with the body, complementary therapies (light and sound therapy), etc.

I think you have a lot of great opportunities there, but no everything does not have to be directly written about Network Spinal Analysis, but should be related to what your target audience might be interested in learning.

I hope that helps!

Yes, that helps a lot. I think I am going to go with Yoni eggs. I think someone coming to my site will want to know where to buy yoni eggs, how to know the site is trusted and stones are real, what benefits come from using a yoni egg besides women thinking it is only to tighten the vagina, the 21 day yoni journey, how to clean and recharge your yoni egg, if its safe to use while pregnant, MY experience with the journey and what it did for me, other ways to take care of your yoni which is the sacred word for vagina.

I know A LOT about this. I believe in that route I can then talk about all the HEALING properties of different essential oils, sage, palo santo (because those are things you use to recharge and cleanse your stone) I can talk about other ways to heal yourself from within and so forth. If you google Yoni Egg do you think I am on the right track?

I even have a domain name I like... I am very into cosmic vibrations etc so since all of my social media and etc are about that I chose cosmiclotuslife.com

After watching the children come through the school system, I have at least taken on some of their learning. The 'Mind Map'. Blank piece of paper, 'niche' written in the middle and then just add random word connected in some way, shape or form. Before long you will have a comprehensive list. They might not be the definitive ones but in turn can become the 'centre' words or ideas to spin more off.
Also, sometimes just writing stuff down can free up much needed 'grey matter' space.

To progress online everyone needs a "niche", but people can be so obsessed in trying to find the best idea for themselves that they become bogged down in the process, frightened that they might choose the "wrong" niche for themselves and I have been one of them. However time flies and can make you lose sight of your objective, that is to help people and yourself to complete your aim to free yourself and household to supplement your income. Life is too short and if you are struggling to decide on your next step online, follow Kyle's idea to choose one to begin with, you can always try different ideas or, if not, follow the "bootcamp" training.

Best Wishes for your future success.

hey hi Oarliene & welcome to Wealthy Affiliate (WA) starter!

Glad that you're enjoying the WA training and yes, absolutely, you're on the right track in defining and selecting a niche that you'd love to work with!

As you progress along the training, the niche that you select will become more finely tuned and it also needs to be a subject area that you are most interested in (having lots of knowledge with your first niche would make it easier to write about for you) as you'll need to research, blog in-depth and extensively over a fair length of time to achieve success for the longer-term in engaging and keeping an interested audience ....

Encourage you to continue onward with your training to upward success!

All the best, cheerio .... ⭐️🎈

I hope you chose then one you like the most , the one that makes YOU feel good doing. I like doing hair to but sometimes it just feels like a chore all my joy leaves, however that never happens when I share some yummy recipe of wholesome food I've found and tried. If hair is your passion girl go ahead lol

That is what I want also. I am starting to collect tools to make it happen, but there are some spots where they will require my intervention. I feel like most of the things can be outsourced if you have money for it, but things like finding affiliate programs, choosing marketing approaches, keyword research, and a few others are better handled by me. BUT if I can get it down to those things, then I can manage it in a few hours a day from my laptop. When you go this way, make one niche completely and then go to another one and do it completely. I estimate 6 months per build out to know what each niche will need in terms of advertising, maintenance, and upkeep. Good luck to you.

I have been considering a leggings niche. I wonder if anyone can answer this for me....does the niche decision become before or after your identify your target sellers? I guess I'm asking if its possible that you could select a niche that's too small i.e. leggings for men. Or is it best to stick with a broad niche to appeal to more buyers

The niche is your main topic ... First you select a niche, then you can try to identify, to target the most active target groups interested in that particular niche.

On contrary, the narrower, the better. A narrowed niche means well-targeted interest groups.

And see this:

There is so much I want to blog about and I love helping others to learn to be independent. I love learning in general, myself. I have several things wrote down and I am going to go use the tools that were talked about in the training video before making my final decision on which niche to use. Thaks for the wonderful information Kyle!

Awesome, your passion to learn is going to take you a long ways in this business. You can take what you learn, and create a successful business online...and do so within any niche. Working within a niche and business in general is a constant learning and evolutionary experience!

in as much as i understand a niche to be something i have passionate with or my line of interest, now the question (1.) is do i use the system to write my niche or i should use Google searching machine to choose a niche? and i am also a member of a certain company from the Philippines specialize in health supplements in partner with natures way and its a multilevel marketing and direct selling company (MLM) So what can be my niche if i choose to promote the company's products?
your sincere advice will be appreciated.

I do think a niche should be something you are passionate about, or at least something you have experience with that you can write solid content about, or something you want to learn about and can still create excellent content. I think the niche you choose will be up to your own interests and the goals you have for your website. There are a lot of great tools, blogs and articles here about choosing a niche, but you could also do searches to help you come up with ideas and research to see the viability of these ideas.
I don't know that there is any "wrong" way to decide your niche, as long as it's something that interests you and you are motivated and ready to build it, create engaging content, and gain your potential customer's trust, you are on the right track!

Hi Benard,

Your niche then is whatever those products are which sounds like health supplements. So if you want to build your business here to promote those MLM products, then that's cool you CAN do that and when the training talks about affiliate products, you would just substitute that with your MLM products instead.

You see, what you're trying to build here is a FREE Traffic Generator with your website. WA's training teaches you how to build your website in a way that it attracts its own traffic so you have leads coming to your online business without paying for any ads.

So your niche will be whatever products you want to promote: health supplements.

So you will think about how you will help this particular group of people who would need your type of health supplement.

I hope this helps!

Ok, so I read all of this and watched the video regarding choosing a niche and I get it for the most part...but I think I am stuck in terms of not knowing which direction to go...I have lots of interests...I LOVE to golf and play as much as I possibly can, but am certainly not expert enough to be writing/blogging about it....I am passionate about healthy/organic foods/natural toxin-free products, but again, certainly not an expert in that either...I think there are lots of things I have an interest in or am passionate about, but I don't feel qualified enough to be blogging about them. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

You don't actually have to be an expert to blog about things. You can show your journey or talk about things you learn as you go through life. Just think about all the people that do the weight loss niche. Sometimes, overweight people blogging about losing weight, while they are losing weight. Those people aren't experts or dietitians, but still people follow their journey and return to see what is new with them and what they have learned. People just want value and someone they can relate to. Give them that and then you can talk about different drivers or wedges you try and why you like them or don't. Hope that helps.

Hello!!! As per my understanding niche is anything you like and can write about. I am quite interested in fitness as I follow a regime of either running my static bicycle or some rounds of yoga. Can I choose something from this as a niche?? Also I don't have any knowledge about affiliated products related with it.

This can absolutely be your niche. I would pick one area of fitness you know the most about and want to write about the most. You can bleed to other topics once you are established, but most all of your posts starting out should be on your niche topic only.

Fitness is a great start, but you should narrow down the idea. Yoga could be a niche, or stationary bikes for weight loss could be a niche.

Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

The video is very informative and gave me a clearer understanding as to what a niche was. One of my long time passions has been to own a Thrift store. I love to thrift shop however due to working a 9-5 job for the last twenty-something years, I never made the dream/desire a reality. I am soon to be retiring and have once again revived this desire. I believe online Thrift and Consignment stores are becoming more popular. I don't know if there are affiliate programs for this type of retail industry so if anyone has some feedback I would greatly appreciate it.

I am not aware of any affiliates (but I'm still a little new), but what you might try is to connect with the thrift stores in your area and let them advertise on your site in exchange for a percent of the sale price. This would not be much different than an Amazon affiliation since the commission there is only 2-6% on average. You might even be able to do make more. You could also have them have banner ads or something linking back to their web page if they have one. There are lots of possibilities if you get creative and want it bad enough.

I've been trying to come up with my niche and this is where I'm leaning towards. I have been working on healing some health problems over the last 3-4 years with a holistic approach. I've reversed my thyroid condition, eliminated several other conditions and uncomfortable symptoms that I've been battling over the years. Throughout my experience I have learned a lot about how to heal naturally and I would love to share that with the world. I was wondering if Holistic Healing would be a good niche and I could write separate articles about all the different methods I've used to heal my body holistically as micro niches. For example, juicing, rebounding, detoxing, essential oils, etc. These are all things I have a lot of knowledge and experience with and I would have a great deal of content to write about on my website.

I want to help people that want to heal their bodies holistically.

I'd appreciate any and all advice!

From what I have learned, anything can be a Niche. Just make sure that it is something that people would be interested, first and foremost, and then make sure that it is a subject that you are knowledgeable. And from the sound of it, you do know a thing or two about the subject.
In my opinion, I would say that it would be a great Niche and you will be able to target many people with it.
Make sure that you research it further before you commit to it.
But I think you might a winner.
Wishing you all of the best.

I think it is a great idea. A lot of people are turning away of the pharma approach to health realizing it does more harm than good and does not offer healing only suppression of symptoms.

After thinking it over a little more, I think holistic healing is too broad. Also, I think I was going for natural healing as a part of living a clean, holistic life.

I really enjoy essential oils and I would have so much to say about them but I've noticed that there are sooooo many people out there blogging about them. What are your thoughts about going down that route instead?

Great videos!! . I am big into fitness, with years of experiences, tons of experience actually: ATHLETICS, SPORTS, TRAINING, COMPETING and RECOVERY from injuries which I had problems finding some stuff I needed at times and would love to help people in all of these categories'.
My question would be in a niche say I am interested in helping athletes find EQUIPMENT, for TRYOUTS, CAMPS, and YEAR ROUND TRAINING!! So if i wanted to sell FOOTBALL< RUGBY<WRESTLING<BOXING<MMA, EQUIPMENT<(any sport that invovled in wearing or using EQUIPMENT to COMPETE<PRACTISE< and TRAIN with), SO WOULD THAT BE 1 NICHE OR WOULD I HAVE SEVERAL DIFFERENT NICHES??
THANKYOU!!!
