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.

That was so informative ! I already have a niche that I am highly passionate about but now on to search for the QSR and traffic . I'm almost ready for that step !
Also I'd like to be an affiliate of WA , but you just suggested not to do both. I wanna make money helping others make money too !

Yeah, don't do both. Focus on just ONE niche, work to create success within that niche, and then diversify once you have the formula for success down. This will definitely happen with time.

I am bubbling with ideas for niches. I am going to go down the OEC path first and then see if I want to do the boot camp. Right now, I am texting with my best friend and mentor how to blend my love of fashion and beauty with my career in project management and data analytics. I'll start with the fashion and beauty niches, then move on to the technical ones as I get more comfortable with the process.

I wouldn't try to blend, I would recommend that you choose one or the other as the direction for your business Annmarie. That is the best approach here.

Which niche resonates or interests you the most? I would make that your starting point here. :)

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.

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. :)

That would be a GREAT niche for you to choose because you are already knowledgeable in it and passionate about it. My diet is very similar to yours and there are many people out their who are really looking for the information you and I both know about and are living in.

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!

Ok now I'm confused!!! As a "newbie" you say don't do both BUT I have a couple niches in mind (Golf and home improvement) but i have my goals and money to think about so do i just head over to the bootcamp start making money there or stay on this course???

Hi - the Bootcamp training is for those who intend to promote WA itself, the money making online business. The Entrepreneurial course is for other niches, such as you suggest, golf and home improvement. You really need to choose which path you intend to take to start with. There is a lot of work involved, and you may get overwhelmed if you try and do both at once.

Hi Diane, actually I have the same questions as TomW3. Bcz English is not my mother language so it is hard for me. I guess, the Entrepreneurial course is for someone who has own product and want to develop the product business, and the bootcamp is for some one don't have product, need to join affiliate marketing platform to make money, am i right? thanks for your feedback.

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.

Woooo, I totally understand. Your explanation is very clear and easy to understand. Thank you so much,Diane. You help me a lot, really.

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, can someone help me with my question, please?
I decided to upgrade to premium membership and I wonder which payment plan I should go for. Can I choose monthly payment for now and then after few months change it to yearly one? Or I am stuck for good with my first choice.
Thank you for your help

If you decide to go yearly or 6 monthly mid month of a $49 month the days you havent used will be discounted so you don't lose out.

You can upgrade any time you want. It works out so much cheaper obviously in the Yearly option. Yes you can upgrade anytime like.

Hope that helps.

Debs :)
