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.

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!!

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!

OK...so my excitement just cranked up another 50% :-)

I will still take a bit of time for choosing a niche but I have a question if you could go for a general niche such as clothing and make changes in future??? I mean clothing general in terms of target audience for all age group. However I tried to choose a niche in sporting attires and jerseys for sporting teams specifically for addidas brand. Any suggestions.

I'm not an expert here, but I would think "general clothing" is too broad, However, your idea of team jerseys may be more in the ballpark. Might be stiff competition tho (pun intended :)

Sounds like you're getting your niche honed down.

Best of luck,
Tom

Makes sense to me but their commission is not all that great at just 7%.

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.

Hi - remember you will be writing lots of articles on your chosen niche, so it is better to think of something you are passionate about, and won't get bored with. Plus, your readers will realise if you have no knowledge of your subject.

It's a bit broad, maybe you could narrow it down to environmentally friendly products, or going plastic-free? Something along those lines?
