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.

Hi, I'm passionate about cats and have already built a wordpress blog as well as ecommerce store. My store is based around cat t-shirts and printables. Most of which I design myself. However, I'm also promoting Amazon cat trees, cat beds, cat toys etc.

Hopefully cats isn't too broad a niche, but having researched the pet niche, both cats and dogs seem lucrative.

Pets are very lucrative, right behind fashion and electronics :)

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!

Thanks for the pointer to Jaaxy. Looks like a great service and will definitely give it a try. Have a great day!

Hi Patricia,
I hope you find THE niche that speaks to you and gets you off and running towards abundance.

Living in the world of "info at the fingertips", it's not too difficult to be an expert on an chosen topic. I like your suggestion ;)

Have fun!
Tom
