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.

Thanks Kyle for taking the time to help me with a niche. If I pick your Affiliate Niche for promoting Wealthy Affiliate is that a problem that you have so many in it already doing the same Niche & doing it the way you train your affiliates to do it. Please advise me on that.

Also if I pick not yours but something else does the training I get from Wealthy affiliate be aas good as your own wealthy affiliate training?

Hi Lou,

Welcome, to the WA platform I hope you are enjoying your free 7-day trial.

I am not Kyle but I think I can handle your question for you if that is okay with you?

In 2015 there were over 3.2 billion people in the world, and over half of them had access to the internet (that’s a lot of keyboard clicking) :-D.

Today those numbers have changed and now it is estimated that over 4.1 billion people sign on the internet on an average day, with growth like that I don’t think that we can produce enough competition in any niche for us to be concerned about.

To answer your second question about the training, here on the platform it is open-ended and is available to all premium members. There is a complete data bank full of blogs submitted form current and former members that you can learn from, there is two training modular (OEC and WA Bootcamp), and I believe there are 13 different topic-specific classrooms, and under the live events tab there are tons of videos of Jay’s (AKA magistudios) live Friday night advanced training. All are available to every premium member.

Equally important the other thing the WA n monitors as far as your website is concerned is you cannot have adult-themed websites: illegal topics, porn, toys, or that sort of thing (if I remember correctly you’ll have to check with site support on that one just to make sure). But other than that you can put whatever content you desire on your website they try to remain as censor-free as they possibly can.

Additionally, if you want to recommend other training products on your website as well as WA that is also allowable too!!

Hope this answered your questions for you.

I strongly suggest that you continue along with the training and do it in order so that you can get the most out of it, to see if this is something that you really would like trying to do!!

Hey Lou,

Sorry, you did not include that in your first set of questions here, but I can answer that question for you as well!

Yes, the $19.00 first month discount is for taking advantage of upgrading to premium within the trial period.

$19.00 first month discounted price.
$234.00 for a 6-month membership.
$359.00 for a 12-month membership.

You can just upgrade for one month to receive the $19.00 discounted price. Then extend your membership for 6 months after the first month when the next month's membership is due. That way you get the first month at the discounted price.

If you upgrade and go yearly at the same time, as I did, you will end up paying $360.00 for the year, it works out that you actually don't get the discounted first-month price then.

I have not looked at the six-month plan or heard of anyone using it yet. But I would imagine that it is set up the same way as the yearly membership; if you upgrade and pay for 6 months all at the same time you will end up paying $234.00 or more for 6 months and not get the discounted first month.

So just upgrade to premium for the first month get it at $19.00 then when the membership is due again pay for at the discounted 6-month price of $234.00 that way you get the first 7 months at $253.00.

Hope I explained this clear enough for you to understand?

My passion is any area of self help. I spend a great deal of time online researching all avenues related to mental. physical and spiritual growth. I know that is a board concept, I felt overwhelmed thinking about. I recently did a search for mail order diet meal plans diet pills. With thousands upon thousands of results, diet pill won.

Hey Raishell! I think you are on a great path. Diet meal plans and diet pills are pretty specific and I think you will find success in that niche. Start by creating content on how these things can help people. Later on, you can review which meal plans and diet pills are the best or help in certain situations and that is where you can add affiliate links. Good luck!

HI, have some products in mind and it's all under same niche. Promoting baby products, car seats, baby monitors, etc

When I know what ones. Do I do to the website like Amazon, download the picture and copy the link that's with it. Or does WA have a list they go by to use for WA premium members to use.

Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)

Can a niche be too broad? Or can you have several inches connected to one bigger niche? For example if I want to target moms then my categories are endless for helping moms with problems. I could have several niches within that audience. Can you make a website that targets an audience with several niches connected to it? Thanks for helping!
Reply
NewLaurie Premium
Jennifer - tart by following your passion (helping moms), but narrow it down to a micro topic within that interest.

Drill down to a subject that perhaps you or someone close to you has had personal experience, or a topic in which you have particular knowledge or curiosity.

Make it a narrow subject you can really specialize in. Build your traffic and authority by becoming an expert in something very specific to start with.

Later on, when you feel you've exhausted every little bit of information and opinion on the topic, you can start expanding your subject matter in a natural way.

I really like this little training article on choosing niches: Try not to overthink it, and just go with your first instincts :)

My dilemma. I want to be an affiliate marketer. If I choose the bootcamp optionis Wealthy Affiliate the only business I will be marketing and able to make commission? Because of my health I have become very into natural medicine. I am a fan of CBD, but not the MLM's I am not a recruiter and the quality control is something to be wary of. There are a couple I would like to promote, however I am involved in a life enhancement company with amazing products one of which is a CBD infused skincare line. So I suppose my question is #1 CBD as a niche. There are various products available oils, vapes skincare ans well as personal care items. Could those be included together in that niche. Second is the stigma that surrounds the name CBD as it is different than hemp for various reasons. I want to be able to market not only a product but also an opportunity such as becoming and affiliate if someone purchased a product such as my skincare. That option is available there is a small fee for them to join and sell but it is an opportunity. I get commission either way. I am an affiliate of a couple others that have life enhancing natural products not CBD related that also offer wholesale pricing and opportunity. I am stuck as to which direction to go. If I chose the bootcamp would I still learn what I need to know to promote the other products? I want to be able to market them. They do come with replicated websites. I want my website where I can send traffic to the product. what is my best option?
Thank you for your help.

Hey Darla -
#1 CBD as a niche - definitely! all the vapes/oils/skincare and personal care items can all be promoted from within your blog.
#2 - The stigma - lessening every day as more and more success stories come out about CBD and its medical benefits.

I'd get in now because I think CBD is going to get a whole bunch bigger than it is now.

Good luck

I have seen several successful CBD niche sites. If this is what you would like to start with, my suggestion would be to continue with the Online Entrepreneur Training as opposed to the Bootcamp training as that training is more niche oriented and Bootcamp training is more geared toward the make money online niche and promotion of WA.

Hope that helps. Best of luck to you!

Hi Darla,
I too understand exactly what you're saying. This isn't my first time at this. Just remember this;
you don't have to stay here, but everything you need to learn affiliate marketing, and the tools to make that happen are here available to you once you upgrade. It took me a long time to make that decision, time I wasted, to be honest with myself.
Remember this, you can make as many websites as you want. Build a site to market Wealthy Affiliate. That is exactly what I am doing. Why, because every sale you make that turns into a customer that is serious about this just like we are, you get recurring commissions monthly when they pay their monthly membership.

If you want to look to see that what I am telling you is true, my site is here https://whatsthebuzzabout.net

I just started about a week ago so there is still much to do, and it is going to be an ongoing project because I am going to not only be reviewing WA I am also chronicling my journey here. That way I am constantly adding new posts about various steps I take here and I will be adding new keywords to the site for more traffic.

Good luck, you can do this, and every site you put up until you get to the one your happy with is just an added income stream. I hope I may have shed some light on this for you or at least given you food for thought?

I hope I see you at the top Darla!

One more question :)
When choosing a niche, should I be really specific? For example, I’m thinking something in the vegan industry, should I go for a variety of vegan products (food, make up, cosmetics, suplentes) or narrow it down to one category, e.g vegan protein powder??
Thanks again

I also have a section on my website for clean and vegan eating. If you can suggest any restaurants in your area to eat at. I will gladly add them to my free list. It is in https://diabetic-victory.com

Thank you, Brian Elliott

Mariana - you're going to be making around 3 posts a week so I'd suggest a niche that has enough information in it so that you can write 3 posts a week without running out of things to say.
Vegan Protein Powder won't give you as many choices to write about as vegan cosmetics or even vegan supplements.
You can write about vegan protein powders as a post if you chose vegan dietary supplements as your niche.

Hey everyone, I joined WA yesterday and have just reviewed the video on choosing your niche. I’d like to clarify at this point that I’m on the right track and that the niche I’ve chosen isn’t too narrow/broad. I’ve decided to focus on my main passion which is songwriting. A quick online search revealed affiliate programs for various songwriting courses along with a multitude of books that I’ll ultimately be able to link to on websites such as Amazon. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

I could see a lot of people are having the same problem I'm having and that is narrowing down their niche my question is even when you narrow it down there is probably a few products that relate to it so can you have a few products with your niche on your site for example when you mentioned baby products can you have diapers, wipes and I don't know changing tables?
Reply
BElliott56 Premium
Yes of course it is your website and you can run it anyway you want. I chose diabetic victory. for one of my websites and it is broad. But I wanted to include all I can that way I include all aspects of the disease. I include as many things as I can to advertise products that work well with the topic but I don't flood it. Then it becomes spam. The other reason I did this is because I did not want to get writers block.

Hope this helps.

For SEO purposes you generally want to narrow it down as much as possible while still having a large enough audience that you can earn money. If you were doing baby wipes, you're better off being one of the few baby wipe only websites and dominating that niche in a way no other "general baby" products site can.

But you want to make sure your domain is general enough (don't use baby wipes in the name) that you can introduce new categories once you start getting traction in your specific space.

Of course baby wipes is just an example.
Reply
DValentine Premium
Hi Gilbert - yes, I agree, narrowing down your choice is difficult. I use Amazon to help me there.

If you go to Amazon and click on Departments, you'll see they have an entire dept. linked to Baby.

Click on Baby and you'll see, all down the left hand side of the screen different niches in the 'Baby' marketspace. There's even a niche called 'Diapering'

Clicking on Diapering gives you a whole range of products you could talk about and promote from changing tables to wipes and holders.

Hope that helps

Hi, I am looking at Keto Diet Products as a Niche, is this a good niche as I want to help people like myself find products that a lot of keto websites recommend using when on the diet etc, anything to do with the Keto Diet so it may be ingredients, cookbooks, etc..

I am at the point how to chose the domain name. I already have very certain products which I will stick with to promote next tens of years... the health products I am promoting are for everyone. One is for babies, elderly people and also both who is healthy or has some challenges with their health condition.

I may need to focus on people who love researching some info about overall health, beauty, detox, anti aging, eye issue, health issue, etc etc.

I have a question about how to chose domain/website name.... does it matter to chose the word that reflect the numbers from google search....for example I want to use the word "hydrogen" in my domain name..... with google search "hydrogen" comes with 157,000,000 result vs "hydrogenized" comes with only 28,000+ result... am I thinking too much? Should I just pick either one to use?

And .com is better than .org or .net or doesn't really matter.

Thank you so much for taking your time to answer to my question....I wish I have more basic knowledge to start this but I am not a computer person lol

Thank you again!

Oh my gosh! When I heard the definition, I knew I would love my niche to be anime and manga since I love them so much. I just looked up affiliate programs for these and I saw good sites I could work on! I wouldn't even have this idea if not for this training. Thank you!

The niche I am going to start with is not directly related to the area of interest I outlined when I signed up to WA, but stems more from something I have been trying to do recently and for which I have been trying different products and still haven't found the perfect product for yet. I can also see in future some applications of my main area of interest for the items I anticipate I will promote in my niche.

Don't worry so much about the products at this point, within any niche there are going to be 1,000's of different products/services that you can potentially promote. Instead focus on who you are audience is.

As you build out your business, your promotions will be contextually relevant to the actual content you create. This could and likely will vary from article to article.

Hi, I am trying to pick my niche based on money. I already have a passion website where I write about a topic that interests me. However, I need this niche to be one that I can quickly monetize. I don't expect to become rich or make thousands off the bat, but something that will start showing some income in month or two. I have a few niches in mind, and I am not sure if I am doing my research right. Is there anyone, maybe Kyle, that I can talk this out with?

Hackerist Premium
I see you are new here. All your answers are in the lessons, so if you follow the training consistently you will get the traffic and you will make money after choosing a niche and getting your audience and something of value or solutions to your audience are offered through your blog. If you don’t find the answers or something needs to be clarified, we are always here to help you out. You can’t expect overnight results. In my opinion, one year is the “normal” timeframe to get your “first dollar”. More or less money, more or less time depends on you, training, dedication, persistence, mindset, etc.
Keep in mind that you will need to write reviews, etc. about topics of any niche you are going to choose. Generally speaking, check the searches and competition to know how big the market is (and how profitable the niche is) for whatever you are trying to blog about.

Hi Tom, thanks for taking the time to write out a response. Yes, I just joined last night so I am brand new here. I think I did not express myself clearly in my original post. What I meant to say is that I need a niche that will be profitable. I understand that pretty much all niches can be, but I also know that not all niches are created equal, some are easier to monetize than others. I am following the training so far. Went back to the niche section and did it twice in fact. I don't expect to make money overnight, or even a lot of money initially. I think the issue I am having is I don't know how narrow I have to go with the niche. I did the research based on how the videos showed me, narrowed down to a few potential ones...just wanted to run by someone to see if the niches I have picked are viable and good options for monetization, and also to see if I should narrow it down further or leave it kind of broad to be able to talk about different categories. Thank you :)

Two things: what are you most passionate about? and based on this check the searches and competition to know how big the market is (and how profitable the niche is) like I said. You can be successful in niches other people don’t and vice-versa.
Final advice, always follow the training and never overthink your niche to avoid the analysis paralysis.

I make custom vinyl shirts, hats, cups, ornaments, decor, etc. as a hobby. I was thinking my niche could be vinyl with categories such as heat-transfer, outdoor, and decorative vinyls. Am I heading in the right direction, or is the concept still too broad? Would possibly adding tutorial content be too much?

Eddy has you covered. Jim
Reply
Amelita Premium
Sounds like you are headed in the right direction here. It would be difficult to make a website about "vinyl" and narrow it down when you have such a wide range of talent with the subject.

If you were to narrow it down, you could choose to do a website on "T-shirt design with Vinyl's" for example if that was your area of expertise or your favorite thing to do w/vinyl's. Then later expand into the other options.

If you think of your audience and what you can help them with, you can better figure out your direction. Offering more categories to your audience will capture interest for sure.

The point in narrowing it down is to narrow the playing field, meaning less competition.

People go online and search for "Custom Vinyls" and a ton of HUGE companies pop up.
Now, if someone wants to get a "Custom Vinyl for a T-shirt" and you build a website for "Custom Vinyl T-shirts", then you have a better chance at getting a "brand site" at the top of the search engines.

You can later work on ranking well for your other categories once you better suss out your competition.

You can narrow it down even more... here is an example... T-shirt design with Vinyl's for "Hippies" or for "Dads" or "Sports" or "Fishing" or "Disco" or "Women" and the list goes on.

It is completely up to you of course but mabe this helped :)

I am currently at that stage.

Great ideas guys. I really enjoy baking, but But I'm more passionate about cake decorating.so if i focus on cake decorating tutorials...well is that even a niche? Or maybe i should say cake decorating equipment...or maybe i should narrow it down to football match cake decorating equipment. Something like that? Is that it. Please help!

Hey Roby, Football match decorating i think is a bit too narrow but cake decorating i think would work for you. It gets over 5000 searches per month and there are so many different types of decorating you could write about - weddings alone is a good number of posts I would imagine.

If you kept it just as decorating you could then cover the styles, how to do it, the equipment - different cake types and so on..

Hope this helps

Hi - cake decorating tutorials is a great idea, and with having the experience, your website visitors will have trust in you. You can promote the items you use. I don't think you need to narrow it down any further, as you don't want to run out of topic ideas.

Cake decorating sounds like an excellent niche. Maybe somewhere down the line you could even create some type of course or ebook that you could promote.

Hi Kyle,

Your post helps me understand niches a little better but not how to narrow my interests into a particular niche. I love food and cooking, but there at least a million blogs about food and cooking; I love books and reading, but how do pull a section out of that to blog about; I love horses and riding, and I have worked with them in the past, riding, training, breaking or I should say "gentling" mustangs, but again how do I separate that into a niche? Then on top of all that, what do I say about any of it? And why would anyone be interested enough to read what I have to say? I never know what to say so basically, I have been a quiet person. I like to think that can be helped, but I'm not sure how to start. I've written and said more during this training than I have at one time for a while.

Can you guys give me some ideas? Thanks.

For my first niche I am looking at the affiliate program offered by Booking.com. I have used them myself a lot over recent years both in the UK and abroad (Philippines). I just would like some advice whether it is a good one to cut my teeth on, so to speak. It was mentioned that they are not all that good payers, but I am interested only because they have done a lot for me. Meanwhile, I will be looking at other niches, of interest to me.

Don't worry about your affiliate programs that you are going to use before you decide on your niche, you have content, and you have people coming to your website. There are going to be 1,000's of products/services that you can promote to any niche and this is going to be based on the contextual relevance of your content.

Thanks, Kyle, I enjoyed your video. Speaking of which, that has been a speedbump for me online.
Creating videos? ***{ Like the one I just watched, is that simply a video capture of your page or are you actually taping your screen with a camera of some kind? These are just a couple of very simple questions but I have more }****

I'm going to do you a favor though, and take my questions to the community now that I am a premium member!! Kyle, I am stoked about finally taking that step. I was afraid that I just couldn't find my motivation again. I love working online, and the "Making Money Online" niche has always been my favorite. I guess that's because that's where I cut my teeth so to speak.

I had to teach myself everything while I was taking care of Ingrid. 5 years seemed to go by rather quickly, but 8 (3" looseleaf binders) later and a whole bunch of everything else you can think of and I must admit that I learned more than I would have in a classroom without a doubt.

I say that because I not only learned how to build a website, many times over, I might add, but I also learned email marketing, SEO, social media, affiliate marketing, blogging, etc.
However, I fully understand that there is always room for improvement in anything that I think I already know?

I have no doubt that as long as I keep an open mind and go through the training in depth without skimming just because I think I already know something, I will be successful here at WA.

Furthermore, I will also be meeting a ton of great people, and learning a lot of new skills and information. I don't know, is it just me, or does that sound like a win-win situation?

In closing, I just want to say that this was the best $19 investment I ever made!

I'll see you at the top as soon as I get there Kyle. Don't worry, I won't be long :-)

Don't panic here, you can either change your initial focus of your website (without changing the name of your website) or you could create a brand new website, with a new domain name that is more specific.

I have an idea for a niche (I have a few!) but one, in particular, is a recipe I created to help people with skin issues after shaving; particularly those that have bumps, in-grown hairs, etc, could be men or women. My husband had this problem for years until he started to use my concoction!
I really have no way to patent the recipe ($6K!) or make the recipe in mass production to sell myself. I was thinking of providing the recipe and affiliate marketing the products that make up the recipe and make it available to the masses. Any thoughts?

Hello Trinkety,
It is a very good idea of having a recipe to promote. But as far as money is concerned and it is something to be used on the body, I think that you should go through a process that will ensure people that your product is sanitary safe. After that step, you need to think of how to have it produced so as to have the product available in time for anyone in need of it. The last step will be the promotion of your product and so on...
Wish you good luck in the process.

Some options I’m thinking about:
1) Quitting Binge Eating - This is an ongoing process for me. Maybe I could extend beyond affiliate items to peer coaching?
2) Avoiding Procrastination - Lots of products on this one, including information products that people might impulse buy online.
3) Using CBD products effectively alone and when to combine them with THC products Recreational THC is legal and easily accessible where I live; Medical has some hoops to jump through but I could discuss how those work and the implications employment wise of using THC in various locations.
4) Realistic Independence Goals and/or encouraging independence. This is related pretty strongly to my normal job. I spend a lot of time coaching autistic and developmentally disabled teens and young adults on how to do as much as possible for themselves because their parents won’t always be around.
5) Insomnia/Hypersomnia. There are habits and products that can foster better sleep. There are other things to help manage functioning with sleep deprivation while you get it figured out.

Which do you think is most likely to have success with earning online?

CBD oil has a HUGE market because it's trending right now so that one would likely be the best bet. That said, if you're not interested in it, I wouldn't do it. You're going to be living and breathing CBD oil for hours and days and months on end. Any of those niches has potential.

This video gave me a lot of insight. I am with 2 DS companies right now, natural products for people, and the other is natural products for pets. I am wanting to also get in with CBD. Would something like "chemical free living" or something be a niche? Could I encorporate both people and pet into that?

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Hey guys, so I'm currently undergoing rehab after a car accident which led to the niche - tools for muscle relaxation.

2.What can I do to make myself standout as a one of hundreds of thousands of game review/game marketing sites.
3.Is there any issues with going this route
4.Do you have any suggestions on a smaller segment of gaming so I have a good place to start?

You can head in this direction, but you will want to narrow it down a little. What aspect of video games (the games themselves, devices, externals, hardware, etc)? What genre? What console? What game? Lots of ways you can narrow things down here.

Write about both. That shouldn’t be a problem. Are you passionate about both topics, right? Do you think you are going to write good reviews about traveling topics?

Hi Tia,

I have an idea for you, why not decide on "problems that comes with travelling"? So you do product reviews on all the helpful products that solve all daily travelling issues like Jetlag, things to pack in case you are stranded in an airport for several days, etc. I think this is the perfect angle to promote travel related products, otherwise the rest are just too broad and you are competing with sites like tripadvisor, etc.

Hi - well, it's an idea, but you would certainly need some kind of gateway to stop those who were under age from viewing it. I don't how difficult this is, and what the legal position would be if it were found that they were able to get through and view your content.
Reply
MrJon1980 Premium
That is a perfectly valid niche. However, I advise against it for 2 reasons. First, is this a website you really want to be associated with? Really think about that one. Certain niches have a stigma around them that may be difficult to get past. The second is, age restricted material could be difficult to maintain security against minors being able to access it. Until you learn more about web design, and how to use age verification tools to limit that access, it might be better to pick a niche that doesn't have to comply with those kinds of laws. But as I said at first, it IS a perfectly valid niche. And there is a heavy dose of competition for it.

Thanks so much, I wasn't so sure will definitely pick one of my other ideas until I properly research that one.

As a noobie in the online business industry choosing a niche could be really overwhelming.

I would like to ask the people who had already gone through this, how did you choose an exact niche? I am sure that you, just like everybody else, have had at least a couple of ideas. How did you make the choice between any one of them? Because for me right now every idea seems like a good one, while it also seems like a bad one (due to big competition on the market for instance)...

I am thinking of making a blog about fashion or sports and put the links of the products there, but the competition is too high and I will probably need to narrow the niche down to a specific category.
Another idea that I am seriously considering is billiard accessories? Do you guys think there is potential in there? There is a chance for high ticket sales in this category as well.

What makes an affiliate website stands out from a original seller website? Aren`t they all using the same online marketing methods?

I am sure I will get some nice answers, so THANK YOU guys in advance for the help and support! I am really enjoying this community.

Hi Teodor7,

Choosing a niche can be overwhelming, BUT IT'S NOT.

Keep it simple - choose a PASSION you have such as -

Health
Cuisine
Gardening
Weight Training
Running
Nutrition
D.I.Y.
even....bringing up kids...

The major niche headings go on...

We all have a passion. Once you've found a major niche, then just simply go in a specific area of that major niche until you really get to an area that you -

1) Want to learn more about

2). Want to pass that knowledge onto others

3). And this is the SIMPLE ONE - WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?

If I wanted to choose an aspect of travel or the travel industry how would you narrow that down to a specific niche? With travel there really isn't anything to sell other than all the travel preparation type of products...like luggage, power banks, etc. How would I incorporate my Network Marketing Travel Business in with an affiliate website or would the network marketing component simply be a link on the site while I'm promoting other travel related products?

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.

With travel, you can break it down many ways.

luggage for kids
traveling solo for women
luxury travel for retired couples
travel gadget tech reviews
exploring [specific city] in detail
cafe and bar reviews in [specific city]
first time backpackers
eco travel
how to plan a trip to Southeast Asia
tips for making plane rides more comfortable
...and more!

Seneca once said...

“It takes you more time to solve a problem than to set it.”

Keyword research allows you to eliminate the time to see the problem. What problem did you have and how did you find the solution for it?

Was the solution lasting and did it have HUGE BENEFITS for you? If so, you became content.

4 billion online searchers want contentment. Sell your contentment.

I think my problem is less in identifying passions I have, and more about how I would actually find a way to monetize them through affiliate programs as they don't really seem related to products at all.

For over ten years I've actually run a Ren Faire event entertaining people with legends of dragons for example, something that has interested me since I was a kid. That's not really a 'category', though. Similarly, I enjoy writing and teaching others how to do it (I actually taught this at the university level during my graduate school program), but that's also removed from the 'material/monetize' world to me.

Does anyone have any advice for someone in my kind of situation, where you know your passions but not how to connect them into something productive?

I agree with PastorDre. But I would add this..Since the first few months is designed to help you build first a website and a trusted platform. Your first focus should be sharing what you know with people. Get them to your site by not selling them anything at all. Just bring them there by showing them you can provide the information they seek. That way, you are going to get noticed by a lot of people. At that point, you will find a way to monetize. You could start selling more in-depth books?

From watching this video, I understand what a niche is...What I am struggling a bit with is once I have thought of a few ideas for my niche, what exactly should my knowledge base of that niche entail? I understand that I don't need to be an expert, but should I have more than just basic knowledge of my niche in order to begin the adventure?

For instance...I am a HUGE Boston Bruins fan! If I were to start off with a niche involving my favorite NHL Hockey team, what should I start with? Products, like clothing or memorabilia? Or should I focus on a different interest like Essential oils/Aromatherapy?

Hi - remember, you will be writing a lot of articles on your chosen niche. Which one would you most enjoy writing about, and would be able to find enough of interest to say about it for the foreseeable future?

Another thing to consider is that until you join and are accepted by an affiliate program for Boston Bruins merchandise, you wouldn't be able to use their logo or other images, as they will be trademarked and copyrighted.

and internet networks. We all love the internet. I'm new to this. It is hard to choose a niche. Are their affiliate programs for game tickets (sports)? How about affiliate programs for cable alternatives? I know the travel industry is big. Any suggestions?

My advice to you would be to take a look into your recent purchases - what have you recently bought related to your interests? Could you build a niche around those purchases (the answer is likely yes!)

I have two primary passions - BBQ and promoting self-reliance through self employment. Neither is bigger than the other.

Starting with BBQ based on my current knowledge base will would provide me lots of original content for blogs, videos, etc. (Plus I already have a Go Daddy domain for this.)

And believe me, when people find out they can not only have but make high end restaurant quality food themselves, there's a sense of pride and accomplishment that goes along with it. Which, in my estimation improves people's quality of life immensely.

The top ranked BBQ site's affiliate has most of the products I want to promote. They are high ticket items that require fewer sales to generate a bit more money.

The thing is that these are one-time sales and most equipment will last years so unless I find a subscription service for say, meats or something, residual sale of current customers will be nearly zero and reorders few. So true passive income would be harder to come by.

Which brings me to self reliance through self employment.

Here, I have a chance to actually improve people's lives while also possibly gaining true passive income through recurring or membership purchases.

I am intrigued by the WA affiliate possiblilty. That opportunity and the direct training look incredible.

I do wonder about the level of internal competition there is. Not only with other members but WA itself as obviously, you guys promote this as well.

So I'm somewhat confused.

As for questions -

No matter what niche somebody picks is there an optimum number of affiliate programs to join? Is it possible to join too many?

Thoughts about my two options?

Sorry this was so long. All feedback welcome.

Thanks!

I haven't noticed any internal competition as far as promoting the WA affiliate program. Everything is very supportive whichever way you go. There are some pretty creating ways to promote WA from what I've seen. :)
As far as number of affiliate programs, I'd start small and focus on building your content. Some affiliate programs will look at your site and decide if they want you promoting their product based on the quality and quantity of your content.
Content first, affiliate programs second. It's pretty easy to become an Amazon affiliate though. There is a requirement of 3 sales within 180 days so have your site ready to promote when you join this one.

Thanks for the input, Palatia.

When I say competition I'm not talking people being competitive in an adversarial way with each other it's more about the numbers of people within WA promoting via an affiliate site. (In case I was unclear)

So for now, you're saying don't sign up with an affiliate program until I've been going for a while?

Hi I'm new to the WA community and I have a few passions that I could potentially build on. Does anyone have any insights or experience in niches such as:
-Automotive / Supercars
-Investing / Stock Markets
-Real Estate / Rental Properties

I constantly find myself researching at least one of these topics on a daily basis. Any thoughts and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your response!

I'm new too. So I'm not sure if I can help but maybe get you thinking I guess. I'll only ask 3 questions to start.

Do you have practical or applied experience in those areas? (Not that you need any but sometimes it gives you ideas.)
What do you search for constantly within those subjects?
What do you see as opportunities in those niches?

I liked the training on niches. I have not taken the plunge to the paid WA opportunity because I have some concerns. In a previous training, I learned that a niche is probably the most important aspect of where you go with your business. I was told you have to try to get a niche where there is not too much competition and there is at least some demand. I also learned that once you get that niche you have to try to optimize your site so it will appear as high as possible in search engines. I know the training says there are more than 4 billion people online and I believe it but there is also an enormous amount of web sites competing for their money. My point, if your website never gets a hit, you will never sell a penny worth of merchandise. Where can I find more training on this aspect. I can not afford to spend money unless I have a fair amount of confidence that I will, at the very least, get my money back in a month or less. Any thoughts?

I just finished lesson two and there was tons of information on how to make every page and post SEO friendly, How to choose the right key words and how to place them so that they are being ranked by the search engines.

I have taken several trainings as well and I have found this one to be the best. If you are still in the $19 offer period I would encourage you to go for it. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I feel I got more than my money's worth already and I barely finished lesson two.

Good luck to you.

Hi Johane

I recommend you find your niche first. That will help you decide on a name for your website.

When you know this then choose the website option - On a free domain. There you will type in the name for your website.

That option will build you one of your free subdomain websites you get with your Starter Membership. Later on as a premium member you'll be able to transfer it to a domain of your own.

Finding your niche is important.
- What are you passionate about?
- What do you want to help people with?

Go through the above video again for inspiration in answering these questions for yourself.

Hope this helps :)

Hi BrigitteB!

Thank you a trillion times. But be patient with me I am still struggling to get niche.

Hey Johane

Just as Brigitte suggested, you first want to decide on a niche.

Think about your passions first. Are you a keen fisherman, camper or other leisure outdoor enthusiast. I notice you're president of your church, maybe this can be what you build your website around, your religion.

Having said that, you want to be able to write about your niche topic at least twice per week. So, you want to make sure there's enough material to write about.

Your week could be setup like this. One or two written articles about your niche topic, then two written product reviews.

As far as setting your website up goes, as you're on the free membership, you'd choose 'On a Free Domain'.

Step 2 - type in the domain name you want. This will have '.http://siterubix.com' at the end of the domain name. (As you move forward, you may choose to purchase a domain name of your own. This can be transferred over easily. Here's how to do this. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/carson/blog/siterubix-website-to-a-domain-you-own-in-one-click)

Step 3 - Type in the name that you want your website called. This will be similar to your domain name. For instance, you may choose a site called 'Awesome Golf Tips'. Your domain would be 'AwesomeGolfTips.siterubix.com'.

Step 4 - Go ahead and choose a theme for your website.

Hope this helps Johane.

First and foremost, I have so much more clarity on what a niche is and how to choose one. This has always been puzzling for me until WA. Feels great to fully understand. Your explanations and visual just put everything into perspective so clearly and I thank you so so much.

However, with that being said, I'm at a fork in the road and don't know which way to go. As I'm typing this out, I'll probably be answering my own uncertainties but I must present what's on my mind here just in case I am able to gain valuable insight from anyone in the community to make a sound decision moving forward. I guess it's like talking it out but typing instead... lol...

Here goes... In the past year and a half, I have got into a few information affiliate programs basically went through shiny object syndrome and when I found myself having to search outside of the site because of information that was missing the more I consumed the more I stayed confused and just hopped everywhere thinking that the next program would reveal the answer. Not the case.

After coming only this far into the Lessons, I now know why this is such an important step and I understand that I need to make a decision as to if it's gonna be the affiliate Bootcamp or EOC.

Here's my problem, I've been confused for so long that I kind of got turned off by the whole information affiliate program bit and I just uncovered a whole other world in which seems so much more fun to build out in the form of a website or websites with different niches and especially something that it's going to be something I like or want to know more about. Now I don't know which way to go.

I feel like I should stick with what I know since I do have a year over-invested. Hmmm, like I said I probably was going to answer my own uncertainty but I'm interested in getting feedback.

I would choose the one that you want to do the most. Either or are viable directions and down the road you can do both, but when starting out you need to narrow down to it. It comes down to what you will enjoy the most and what niche you will enjoy working with (and the corresponding audience).

If you enjoy what you do, you can work hard and it doesn't feel like nearly the same amount of effort as it does when you don't enjoy what you are doing.

I am having a hard time figuring out my niche... My hobbies are, taking pictures from my phone, traveling (when I can afford it), working as an extra, model and actress in small roles here in Norway (it's a bit different here than in the US).

I love drinking coffee, reading books (however, reading a book is years since I have done), learning about ADHD (I am diagnosed and not on medication), podcasting.

To pick a niche, think what make you Happy! You like to model then their a lot to talk about in that.
But the one thing I know for sure is pick the one thing you love most. Why i say this is because when you get started their going to be a lot of writing. You'll she it not like you cant do more when you know more. Follow the training step by step and when you learn it then pick up more. Until then start out with one. Work with it and move on you got this we are all here to achieve are goals and Dreams. Don't make it hard make it fun.

I think although it seems quite a simple thing to do. Picking a niche appears to be harder than it looks, as I see I am not alone in the concept that it is difficult. I get the impression that it is best to consider something that you like, but could this option be thrashed as it is popular?

I was thinking about travel, could this be an option. But Amazon doesn't do travel. Should I just settle for something associated with travel like luggage?
Reply
YvetteC2 Premium
Choosing a niche can certainly be a hard task to complete. Choose a niche that you like, yes, and that you feel you can offer a lot of content around since you'll need to write quite often. Amazon is not the only affiliate-related option, so I wouldn't choose your niche around what they offer. I am not sure if you're able to see the "Affiliate Program" area here in WA. But there are certainly other affiliate programs you can research around travel. You can also Google: travel+affiliate programs. This way you can see what affiliate programs come up.

I hope this is helpful to you.

Kind regards,

Write about both topics. That shouldn’t be a problem. Are you passionate about smart tv? Do you think you are going to write good reviews about smart tv? Generally speaking, check the searches and competition to know how big is the market (and how profitable is the niche) for the product you are trying to blog about.

So I get the feeling finding a niche means finding a product one is passionate about. I don't think I am passionate about any product like I am passionate about computers, photography, dogs, immigration reform, southern border barrier, solar energy and electric automobiles. Not sure there is a niche in there anywhere. Hmmmmmmmm?

DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - a niche is not just simply a single product. It is a subject or topic you are passionate about and can help people with, by providing advice and useful information. Most of the subjects you have mentioned could be considered a niche but would require narrowing down. For example, photography, you could write how-to guides, and recommend different accessories such as a particular lens or tripod.
Reply
Thanks, Diane. Much obliged. Unfortunately, I don't consider myself expert enough in photography as yet to put myself in a position of an expert. I am still learning myself. The hobby/business is very complex to know enough. Just not sure how my writings or recommendations can mean much to others where I can earn money. Confused.
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - you don't necessarily need to be an expert. People are interested in hearing other people's views and opinions. Have you ever bought a product related either to photography or any of your other interests and been impressed by it? Have you found yourself saying to friends or family, "this is really good because..." If you can persuade people that a particular product helped you, then they will be interested enough to check it out for themselves, and maybe buy it. Then you will earn a commission.

So if using the example of baby products I use the idea of a nursery for my niche I assume that would mean cots, furniture, baby monitors etc would be included? Or have I picked this up wrong? I’m struggling to decide on one particular thing🙈 or I’m making this harder than it needs to be.

You can start with one category of these products and add more of them as you get bigger. Just choose one to get started. You will understand the process by moving forward.

Many marketers create more websites later or change their niche after a while. There is no reason to worry.

I was thinking it would be mobile phone repair. I wasn't sure if it had to be a product or something i could directly monetize strictly online.

Then the second part, is it's not just that. I specifically want to hone in and focus on the broken screens and parts that have a lot of salvage value and hidden value, if you're willing to put forth the extra effort.

Does that work?

I want to work with Women of menopause and pre and post age, women of 40 plus. So it will be health products, other items for luxury and comfort. I also want to push the affiliate program for those who are at an "is this it?"stage in there lives. Literally my niche and ideal customer is me. I buy lots of health and beauty products on line and would like to pull them all together for my customers.

Hi there Angel
Yes you can.

All you need is a Wealthy Affiliate review post with links so they can join.

Within your posts, or somewhere on your home page, even in your menu if you want, you can promote WA.

You can promote to your readers that if they are interested in learning how you were able to build a website like you have they can check out your review on your favorite website building program (WA)

You can also promote to your readers that you are an affiliate and you earn from your blog and if they want to find out how they can also become an affiliate, they can check out your review post of the #1 affiliate program (WA)

Or, promote to your readers about what they are there for.
So lets say you have a website about dogs.
Now, to promote WA, maybe you are doing a post about a specific kind of "show dog" then you can say to your readers...

If you want to create a fun blog about your "show dog" and learn how to earn some extra cash while blogging, check out my review post on "how to build a website about showdogs and earn income"

Then, in that post you are directing them too, you can add in a "call to action button" or link them to WA. (This post will also be a review post of WA) Informative and showcasing how your reader can get creative with their interests :)

Those are just a few examples, feel free to get creative.
All the best,
-Amelita

Hi Angel, as Diane said, I agree that you should do it on two websites. I have other blogs, one in particular which is like my sandbox. It's whatever I want to write about rather than something specific. Here's my blog where I wrote about WA using my Affiliate link. https://luigicappel.wordpress.com/2019/06/05/affiliate-marketing-that-works-while-i-wait-for-my-back-surgery/
If you don't have one, you now know how to do it. You can get a second website here at WA the same way you got your first one. A lot of people say to get your own name .com if it is available. I have a unique name so I didn't feel I needed to, but if you have a name which is more common, and there can't be many people like me, then I'd go for your name.
I don't think it is a good idea at this stage to use the one you have developed for Affiliate marketing UNTIL you are a huge success. At that point, irrespective of your niche, you would be in a good position to create a post saying how you got to be so successful and that people can click on your Affiliate link to learn how to do it yourself.
Just my thoughts, hope I've added to the discussion.
Regards
Luigi

hey guys, I have chosen a niche in a digital nomadic lifestyle, and travel services, I love this idea because I really love to travel the world on budget not luxury. I wanna see different places and people. I did some freelancing work in IT field, but I now I wanna know if is it possible to make an affiliate program in this niche so it will be passive income. I already did some offline affiliate in that field, like selling tours and stuff but I wanna know if this niche is good for online or not.

Hi - you are not limited to Amazon. Check out this feature here at WA, where you can search for relevant affiliate programs. Do remember though, some programs expect to see a good deal of content on your website before approving you, so concentrate on that first, before applying.

Hi Kyle,

I was wondering since your recommendation is NOT to do the OEC and Bootcamp but to choose one of them, how would I be able to start referring people to WA? :) I have a niche ready to work with but I also would like to have the opertunity to refer others to WA.
Are there any specific reasons to your recommendation other than "Timeconsuming - focus on one project at hand"?
From what I understand the reason is to only focus on one project at a time? Atleast for a newbie like me, but as I get better, faster, more secure should that stop me from going through Bootcamp?
I mean going to Vegas does sound like alot of fun... :)

As always,

Hi - the training is quite intense and as a beginner, it would be challenging to work through both courses at the same time. Plus, ideally you would need two websites, as they are separate niches, and trying to add content to both on a regular basis is very time-consuming.

There is nothing to stop you completing the Online Entrepreneur Certificate and getting your first website set up, and then moving on to the Bootcamp. If you have friends or family interested in joining WA, you could send them your affiliate link by email.

Thank you very much for that answer, Wow, this community really IS the best.
And also thank you for clearing that out. I guess I already knew the answer.
I might have friends to refer one day. I just need to get things going so that I can show them that WA really works. =)

Best regards,
Wresh

The video is very informative and easy to understand about the niche. I have a lot of interest to start with, but I should start with the most I am interested in. I hope I get a good start with my niche as my first trial. The only thing I am a bit scared is how and what to write in the content of my niche.

Thank you,

Hadrian

WA is a great place to learn new things.

a very important lesson I learned about choosing a Niche is that it starts with me - What I am passionate about. This really helps to narrow it down and make it a little easier to center on what interests me. I have always thought about how to make money online - feasibly. I guess I will take a Jump-Start from there, using my own learning experiences to expose the Niche more as I gain the required skill-set

I am new here only been a member two days now. I'm thinking for my first neche will be health and wellness products or baby clothing. I have a 1 year old daughter and always need more baby clothing lol as they grow fast. I also am interested in health and wellness so this should be a good start I think...

You will want to narrow either one of these categories down a bit. 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. :)

guys if i choose a niche lets say fitness and then narrow that down to accessories is it best to then narrow it down even further to a specific item and just specialise in that one item i.e lets say jump ropes etc?? thanks in advance for the help

I would say keep it with accessories but you can narrow down your blog post and reviews to things like ropes, protein drinks, and different types of accessories. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Jump ropes and skipping could be a niche indeed.

Within that niche there are many things that you could discuss, many different exercises, many products/services you could promote, events, etc.

Thanks for your response. I was using the fitness as an example however I am very interested in hiking and it’s something I do myself. I followed your example in the video to narrow down the niche and didn’t know whether hiking equipment was to broad of a niche or wether to choose a particular piece of equipment and focus the website just on that item range?

if i want to use images or pictures i have found off of google on my niche website, am i allowed to do that or is that a copyright violation ? For example, i am needing pics of the muscles in the neck and can find plenty on google. I am just just not sure if i am allowed to use them?

can I still have the opprtunity to be able to apply affiliate even if I am not yet premium. I am a handicapped And I will not be able to find a regular job to pay premium. So I was thinking if I can earn a bit outside premium membership. Then later I can upgrade to premium can I do that here in WA?

Hi you can be a free member for 6 months, so if you do that work on the training as hard as you can and get as many blogs on your website as possible. After 6 months you will be asked to go premium. Good luck with your decision.

I have decided on my first niche. I am the designer/owner of a greeting card company. I am trying to see how I could make this work for me. All of my greeting cards are different, intentionally. I hardly ever make 2 of the same card, but only because that is boring to me. I think that my niche is to make things beautiful;to the best of my ability and that is through my greeting cards.

I am obsessed with beauty and there is so much of it in the world. I believe that I make amazingly beautiful greeting cards. My cards are made to order some of the cards are made in different color options I try to put lots of samples of my previous work so that you have a clear picture in your head of what your card could look like. Then there are some cards that the buyer will have options to choose different things on the cards i.e. sentiment, occasion.

I have been making cards for the last 20 years. I have grown a lot in those 20 years, but you can always learn more. And I am always up for that. If by chance you choose to allow me to design a card for you from one of my many designs, you are saying that you allow me to make some changes according to the product that I have on hand. Your card will look very simular, but with my own special twist on it. The product you recieve will be somewhat simular, but better and filled with love.

Does anybody think that his will work, besides me?

I have decided on my first niche: vacuums and general cleaning supplies. I could do reviews, product suggestions, what not to use, maybe even review Pinterest cleaning suggestions. I am a cleaning lady and have been for almost 10 years so I thought it might be a good place for me to start. What do you think? Maybe after I get that one set up, I could move on to another passion of mine.

yes that would be great and a review of the products will help your people who visit your website get a good ideal how well it cleans

I think that's super cool! Not everybody would think that their regular job would qualify as something you could take online. But I research almost everything I buy online, and reviews have been most helpful on making the purchasing choices I have. And my wife loves Amazon immensely, so a lot of those are purchased through affiliate links. So congrats!

I have many ideas and i will start with one and as i know more I will expand the products and services. First I have to get my feet under the table and then take it from there.
The way the course appears to be presented it appears to be a very logical step by step education.
I'm very excited to see my futuer progress alongside my WA colleagues

Yeah, just narrow it down when you are starting out Eric. It only takes ONE niche to be very successful online.

I really look forward to seeing your progress moving forward. :)

hi,
I have read many of the comments below and found out that the main point of choosing a niche is to be specific. But I am so frustrated that I don‘t know what to choose.
I saw some of you saying that choose a niche that is your hobby / you have passion in it,
I think TRAVELING is my hobby and passion, but I don’t know how to narrow it down :-I

What are your favorite places to travel to? What would you bring with you or wish you had brought when you went/go there? Just pretend to be somebody who wants to travel but is completely unaware about what it takes to do what you do.

I'm loving this but I need to be clear, so if I know the niche that i want to do, I carry on with this training but if I want to promote only wealthy affiliate I leave this training and go to the boot camp training?
Is this right?

Thanks

Wow okay thankyou!! Me being me would like to eventually do both... I'm going to try for my own niche at the moment and see how I go with that...
And, Do most people not usually promote WA at some point anyway?

Good Day, Hamza.

If I'm reading your question correctly, you're saying:

... I want to walk, but I don't want to use my legs, or
... I want to walk, but I don't want my feet to touch the ground, or
... I want to walk, but I don't want to get off this chair!

The easiest way to be successful in life is to follow the teachings of successful people.
This is not some crazy maxim that I've invented.
This is common knowledge.

Go back as many steps as you need to understand what a niche is.
Find a NICHE that you are comfortable with and begin there!

You cannot start at the top of the pyramid,
there is someone there already.

You have to begin at the bottom.
You cannot begin as president of the bank.
You have to start as a teller.

There are dozens and perhaps 100's of pages here explaining what a niche is and how to go about finding one. This is where you have to begin. I'm not suggesting that you become the proverbial lemming running off the cliff, but you have to follow instructions to achieve the results that the program describes.

Research what a niche is UNTIL,
you can explain to someone else, "What is a niche?"

You will have to bother with a lot of stuff you don't like to achieve success.
There is no other way around it.

If you do find any easy way to success, market that idea!

A niche, ... "the easy road to success"

Everyone would like to find it, but no one has,
and besides it would take all the hard work out of it and make success, meaningless!

Paul

Sure, this is absolutely the direction that you can head here. If you are going to head in this direction, I highly recommend that you head through the affiliate bootcamp training.
