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 again for the awesome clear simplicity . I'm going to focus on dog/cat tracking collars, seeing as there are an abundance of lost pets . Or, I may focus on the natural herbs for the dog/cat health. It will all depend on the research , I suppose. Thanks again, you guys ROCK SOLID!

I have decided to choose a niche and want to check if people think it's a good choice. I have decided to go for classic football shirts, football (not soccer), as I have always been a football fan and I should have no problems writing content related to this niche. Is this too broad of a niche? Related question is that I am resident in the UK where football is national sport. I intend on selling all famous football shirts (not just English football shirts, but all countries), so was curious if .co.uk or .com domain would be best going forward? Does it matter?

I think that would be a fantastic niche, Darren - certainly not too broad. Regarding your domain, I would definitely go for a .com domain unless you just want to focus on the UK as your target audience, which, I assume, you don't intend to do.

Hi,

What I understood from this lesson is that Health & Fitness can be a niche, but it is recommended to start with a such vast one? It's recommended to start, for instance, in the niche "Running" (it is a niche right?)?

I would like to receive your recommendations please.

Thank you all.

Cheers.

Yes, health & fitness is far too broad, running is better.
Reply
cramervod Premium
What about health and fitness interests you? What you are aiming for is a group of people that have specific problems you can find solutions for. For a group of runners, you want to narrow it down first to which gender, age, income level, how long have they been a runner, and so on.

That is how you find a niche which is a targeted audience for your website. But before you do that you really need to understand the niche enough to figure out what you are looking for. i.e. You either have experience in it, you have a passion to learn about it, you're a runner yourself and know tips and such...

After that, if you would like to move forward, start to come up with an outline of your site. This means you will be adding content on the site that will be focusing on the big problems which you will be solving and anything else that will help you to assist the targeted audience.

I'm glad I watched this video. For me, it busted some personal misconceptions I had about niche businesses.
1. I used to think niches were only for experts.
2. I used to think that if you were in one niche then that was all you did.
3. I used to think that a niche was exclusive, that it only worked if only very few people were doing it.

I wonder if other people had these same misconceptions?
Reply
Kyle Premium
So glad it broke up these misconceptions. The one thing that lots of people worry about is the idea that they are not an expert. However, NOBODY starts off as an expert at anything...any expert you see now was once a complete newbie in their space.

The path going from green within a topic to an expert is much quicker within the online world because of the amount of information available to all of us (and the fact that your website can become a true platform to communicate and engage with your audience).

I think I like mini cams and virtual reality glasses niche, both these things are for seeing and looking at things in new and amazing ways. I can integrate some other stuff under a/my own brand name web site, or will I need to have two different web sites for the different products then?
Also, will I need to, should I, or can I set up another / different gmail account in the brand name?

I think I will go for body building supplements. I have always enjoyed working out and have let myself go a little bit while going to school. I think it will be good for me, allow me to get back into something I have been very passionate about in the past, and be a very lucrative area.

I wanted to mention as well that these discussion boards seem almost, if not just as, important as the training itself. I am already picking up alot from reading other members' questions and the answers and advice offered in return.

Definitely a direction, you can even narrow a niche like this down even further. Things like mass building supplements, pre-workout, etc. Those could all be niches, but you can start with a broader brand name and start narrow, and then diversify.

There is a lot of opportunity within any niche, including this one. ;)

I would like to start with a niche related to dogs. I think dog toys & training tools would be a good one. Also later on I would also like to become an affiliate on Wealthy Affiliate. Is that a possibility for my next website. I realize I would then need to go through the boot camp program.

Sure, you could head in that direction with your niche. I would focus on one or the other, I would not try to do too much at once. Down the road and once you get the formula for success down within one niche, you can diversify and get involved in man others.

Yes. Doing a website in a niche related to dogs first and then promoting WA is the best way to go. I highly recommend that you do not do Affiliate Bootcamp before completing the Certification Courses because it will better your outcome once you do start to promote WA.

Nice clear explanation of how to come up with a niche.
Sorry just thinking ahead with the affiliate links to the supplier websites, have those that have already have this developed experienced any websites that don't do affiliate links?
Say I went for "gifts for pets" - there maybe smaller companies/websites that have this in place (not you're Amazon's) that don't the capability to want an affiliate (as it cuts their margins despite having more traffic directed to them). Any comments welcome

Almost every established brand and all of their products will be available for affiliates to promote. You can promote over 550 MILLION Products/Services as an affiliate.

There is no point in trying to get a company to set up an affiliate program if it is very technical to set up an affiliate program and if a company doesn't have one, move on. There are 10,000's of affiliate programs out there and MILLIONS of products that you can promote as an affiliate.

So I wouldn't bother in this scenario, all sorts of things would have to be set up (tracking/etc) which is a lot of work and a company is not going to do something like that for you unless you have an establish brand/authority in a niche.

Well, Of course I am struggling to choose my niche. Well, I like computers and stuff related to technology, and I need an opinion from someone.

Should I use the technology niche which would include basically everything related to tech (computers, phones, components, accessories) or should I target it down to something like... Computer cases?

Who can help me with this?
Reply
Would definitely target it down to a specific product or two for now if I were you. Maybe try phone cases or even laptop cases. I know at least 99% of people with a smartphone always have a case. Best of luck to you!

Hi Kyle,
Deciding on my niche today. A couple I have thought of is Car Parts, specifically JDM parts so for Japanese cars and people who like modifying them. Also Electric bikes.

Any thoughts or recommendations? I don't know that much about cars and parts but I love cars and would enjoy looking at that area also I think ebikes are awesome haha.

Hope to hear from you or anyone in the community soon.

As I was watching the video, I was brainstorming some ideas. I am trying to stick with what I know and is passionate about right? Okay so these are my niches/interests. I'm kind of not sure what to call the niche. But I want it to be my personality, because I can talk all day about me. haha

Gift Giving
Getting naturally healthy
Healthy Families
Music, Arts, flipping projects
Spiritual topics: deliverance, biblical topics
natural healthy make-up

The gift giving thing I think excites me the most. But also how to take care of yourself as a whole. I'm a christian, is that a niche? haha. I'm just delighting in the thought.

So could I have healthy-related products in a gift giving niche? I hope I am understanding correctly.

sorry I am so scattered brain!

It's fine to narrow it down and help a more specific audience. For example: gift giving for women, men, girlfriends or a special occasion. I think there are many people who search for relevant information on the internet.

So, after reading many community post about niches here I will get my supplement website transferred and fixed here first. Being a caregiver for some almost forty years, I have a great passion about how we age and why our bodies do what they do to become unhealthy and sick. I already have readers on that site because health is an important thing now and how we take care of our bodies. Our doctors and the health and aging world are always trying to find fixes for why thing are the way they are.

So this was one of the problems I ran into in the past when trying to pick a Niche and starting my website was that for example if I wanted to do weights should I start with a general fitness page and target keywords about weights and just write my articles about weights or do I just make my website all about the weights.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Weights is not a niche. The people that lift weights is. The audience in other words. Sure you can head in this direction and in terms of your website name/brand, you can be more generic if you want, or you can be specific.

LiftingBigWeights.com

For example, that could be a potential brand.

This is definitely going to take me longer than 15-30 minutes. Can you tell me if an affiliate marketing niche generally makes more money than most niches? How can i find out which niches are most popular or most used? Is my website more likely to get clicked on if I use a less popular or less used Niche?
Reply
Kyle Premium
No, it doesn't necessarily make more. It depends on you and the business you create. If you want to create a successful business within the photography niche, you can. If you want to build a business helping people within the dog world, you can. If you want to create a website that educates people on affiliate marketing, you can.

With 4 billion+ people online, any and every niche can absolutely be profitable.

My passion is film. Since I can remember I always wanted to have a job in the film industry. I studied film editing in college, and after looking at differetnt occupations in the film industry I came up with an ideal to promote the people who work in film. Now my question to the group is: can that be a niche?
Reply
RobertDoyle Premium
Yes, films are always popular. With such a big industry, you probably should narrow it to a certain genre. What are your favorite kinds of movies? Action, comedy, romance, family, sci-fi? Or you could creatively categorize it differently to still include several genres. For example, if someone loved Tom Hanks, they could capitalize on all of his movies in various genre. Just an idea.
Reply
Duke101 Premium
Yeah thanks, I'm still figuring out what area I want to cover. Like you said it's a variety of subjects to choose from. But I'm focusing on the talent in film, both in front of and, behind the camera. So that narrowed the subject line I guess.

Hi Group,
As an aspiring life coach, I am wanting to write about self help programs—Tony Robbins, Esther Hicks, Bob Proctor, etc. My question to the group is: Is it smarter to choose one coach's program to write about, or write about several self help programs? This may also help me narrow down my domain name. Thank you everyone in advance.

EddySalomon Premium
You don't want to limit your content to just one program. Ideally you want to do what WA sort of teaches for the affiliate bootcamp but in your self help niche. You can review and write about many self help products but have 1-2 that you highly recommend as alternatives or in addition to the ones you may be reviewing that you don't have a relationship with. So it's the best of both worlds. But you want to review and write about any new product or service related to your niche since it will help you get traffic. Basically following what the training teaches us.

My family and I live on a farm, and would like to hit just about every market for farm life and our extracurricular activities. Which sort of ends up meaning, our niche is expansive. I've thought about creating either hub pages or websites that hit each thing individually. Cooking/baking, gardening/canning, sports/camping, animals/butchering, children etc.
The website name i want has a lot of the dot __ for my specific categories actually. WHich is what gave the idea to have individual pages and then use social media to broaden the audience. IS this not recommended?
Reply
JerryHuang Premium
I would recommend to start with a targeted and specific niche instead of having everything all together. But you can choose a more generic and broader domain name so that when you want to include more relevant niche, you can easily do so.

Having a narrower and more targeted niche allows you to see results much faster.
Reply
Would creating many websites for specific things not work to do that?

Ill use an example website name (because i like mine and don't want people to see it! ;) )

example.farm
example.outdoors
example.family
example.cooking

all of these domain names were available- and at low cost. I'd like to create a social media site with the prime name of example and then have links to the websites for specific information on the topics. But my page would hit the farming/outdoors/cooking topics if searched on social media. I'd keep things separate but all under like an umbrella name. So people eventually would know they're all the same creator. Is that a bad thing? Letting your audience know that you have multiple connected sites? Is it better to make them all different and not clearly created by the same person? My actual niche would be farm life more or less. Because everything I've mentioned is related to living on a farm. Even camping. I don't know anyone that owns a farm that doesn't camp or hunt even.

I would strongly encourage you to get one site up and running well first. While I understand what you are trying to do (sounds like a great idea too!), each website is far more work than you initially think it will be.

Get one up and running well. Then, if you enjoyed the process AND have the time go for more. Over-reaching kills many new sites because of the shear volume of work that is necessary to make a site a success.

Best of luck to you!

Very true. I’d like to purchase my domain names at least in the event I do expand. They’re next to nothing, so it’s not really a pocket robber situation. I think my issue will be focusing on only one aspect of the niche..since it’s so broad.

You can create categories within your main domain for different niches. While you get more experienced, you can also look into creating subdomains for each niche if you want to.

Thanks for a very clear walk through on niches .
This is my third attempt at this but I think I have finally come up with a niche I am happy with. My site will be called - www.mylifeingredients.com - here I will review personal development tools online and give my recommendations after using them - I will register as an affiliate with these sites. I have a Masters Degree in Education so I am hoping my education background will be the credentials I need to put together a good review site on personal development tools that I can recommend to my readers. I also have my own story of recovering from a serious car accident and the personal development tools that worked for me to help me change my life and live a happier much more fulfilling life.

I know choosing is should not be that complicated, but should I choose a niche that I love or the one that is profitable.

For example, the niche that I am thinking is leadership. I don't think there are lots to sell on that niche except books. Are there affiliate programs on selling conference tickets, private courses, schools, etc?

There are tons of courses and other items to promote on clickbank .
Create a free account and then go to marketplace. Search the niches on the left and find the offers in the niche you are interested in. Then make your decision .
I would lean towards something you are passionate about because it will much easier to create content .
If you choose a niche based solely on promotions it may get difficult to come up with relevant blog post content after a short time.

I just started learning about affiliate marketing a few hours ago.

Hello all, I just finished the module on niches, and have narrowed it down to three...I wanted to ask you all what you thought and if they were viable options:
1) press-on nails - I'm kind of obsessed with these and have tried different brands enough to narrow it down to a favorite. This particular brand doesn't have an affiliate program yet though.
2) coffee - something I need to function on a daily basis, I enjoy trying different brands and trying it at different locations.
3) cleaning products - when I find a product I love, I am excited to share it with others.

Do any of these sound good to anyone?

Totally love the idea of creating a Niche or two to start.....
one difficult thing is I've got a broad Niche, which is general health - including mental health. I've got a decent list of things I could try to sell, and plenty that I could say about certain topics or products.

(Actually, I have my own blog, too. It is a personal blog that includes much about mental health. Good Nutrition, exercise and mental health are important to me, so I'll write about things like that in my blog [still working on it.....] I will try to include my blog in my profile - if my free membership allows.

Anyway, is it necessary for me to narrow down my Niche?
So far I am interested in promoting, writing about and selling information and products about a variety of health factors:
- Mental health
- Nutrition and Exercise
- Environmentally friendly and very chic hair, skin and beauty products
- environmentally friendly cleaning products
and last, but not least, to promote but also to research and learn more for myself....
- HEALTHY SKIN! Minimizing eczema!!!!! Eczema has disrupted some of my happiness. the only way for me to get it under control is to get ointments from doctors. SO, the more i research it and find quality info. and products to sell, the better off I - and other people dealing with eczema - will be......

Really interesting video. And all comments are really good.
I want to create a site that empowers mum's to earn a living from home. I am a mum that really struggled as my children were growing up. Couldn't work because nurseries were to steep and what ever I earned would all go to paying nursery. We had to live on my husbands income and it wasn't enough to cover all expenses.

Absolutely a direction! If you are going to head in that direction I would recommend that you head through the Affiliate Bootcamp as that is the direction that you want to head if you are interested in a niche that is related to "make money".

Thanks for the advice.
So the one I am doing now is not applicable to what I want it for?
Does it matter if I do it anyway?
I really want to learn all of it.

So, I understand the overall concept of how this works but I do have one question: What keeps an individual from leaving my website or niche and going directly to the vendor (Amazon, Walmart, etc.) Example; in the last video you mentioned baby items, lets say my niche was baby wipes. On my website the icon for Amazon is listed there. Why wouldn't the person just go directly to Amazon in the url instead of clicking the link? And I am asking this assuming a person might think they are paying less for the item if they are not going through a "second hand" person so to speak.
I am also assuming if you do not click on the link and go search Amazon after finding the product on an affiliate site, you would not earn the commission on that product.

I would say that your visitor will find that the price of the article would be the same, whether going through your link or going directly. In order to have them click your link, WA teaches you to make professional product reviews, that go beyond what Amazon would advertise. The right reviews will convert.

You raise a good point! You're absolutely right in that some people do not click on the links and just go to Amazon on their own. However, this isn't as much of an issue as you might think, especially as you start getting a lot of traffic to your site. Also keep in mind the number of people using smartphones and tablets over desktops and laptops continues to rise. It's just easier to click the link in most cases.

Amazon sort of makes up for this as well. You get commissions on ANYTHING sold. For example, I have a site, DogFoodInsider.com, which reviews dog food and uses the Amazon Associates program to earn revenue. However, I receive commissions on much more than just dog food. In just the past 30 days, I've sold everything from dixie cups to clothing and even a gas grill. Amazon is really, really, really good at converting visitors into sales. Most people already have an account with Amazon, and as long as you "get them in the door" so to speak, there is a decent chance they will buy something. When I send someone over for dog food, they might decide to think about it, but also remember they have other things to buy.

So, to answer your question, it's true that some people will not click your affiliate links, but it's not really that big of an issue.

Hope this helps!

You can definitely head in the video game 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.

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. :)

Thinking about getting into recording studio equipment. I’m an aspiring audio engineer so the niche was pretty easy to choose. There are a ton of studio starter kits on Amazon that would be great for novices who can record podcasts and set up their own studio at home without paying thousands of dollars.

Sounds like a potential niche to go for Khalidah. Leverage your expertise and experiences as audio engineer and write content and reviews which studio equipment is good for different groups of buyers would definitely help people to choose what product they need to consider.

That's a great niche! Seniors especially need dental care they can afford, because as one gets older dental care becomes more and more necessary and expensive. I agree with Kyle, however, that you should focus on dental or health, but not both. And I think the greater demand would be dental, because it seems the most forgotten in mainstream health insurance programs—and it is outrageously expensive!

It's really best to start off with one niche, focus on that, add your content and grow your traffic. Then when you have that going, you have a much better understanding of what it takes to grow your sites and the time that it takes, you can then add another.
Reply
you can always start narrow with just one smaller subset of health and fitness etc just to learn the mechanics of doing affiliate marketing. then broaden the site or start several small sub-niche sites.
A lot of people really like doing mini sites for one or two items or types of items. lather rinse and repeat.
There are also a lot of people who do a broader niche and write tons of content and do affiliate marketing to get an idea of what their audience wants and then go off into creating their own products. so why not start with a mini website with a very focused single topic and then later you can expand that site or start another site.

I just had Chemo so I was out of it these last 2 days and dealing with a case of Chemo Brain lol for real. So I'm back and still working on my niche and I've decided that I wanted to appeal to the younger generation 40 and up dealing with health issues who are still active in their fitness regimen. So I wanted to go into the Health and Fitness and talk about Gym equipment in particular to treadmills,elliptical and stationary bikes. Do I need to narrow it down to just One of these machines or can I incorporate all of them? Any thoughts would help me a great deal I'm trying to get over this hurdle and it's been eating at me all week. And I thought, that's what the WA is here for. Thank you in advance WA family.

First of all, hope everything is fine with you Stan. Sorry to hear the challenging life you have to go through and hope you keep your strong spirit.

Gym Equipment is a potential niche but you might want to narrow it down to certain type of equipment, targeting specific audiences as I know this is quite competitive niche. Do some research and look for something not so competitive keywords related to gym equipment and you can start with specific equipment first to get your site indexed and ranked. Once you start to get decent traffic, you can expand your coverage to include other equipment as complement to your main products.

All the best to you.

Thank you, NewMPro I appreciate your input I was going to narrow it down to one of those 3 equipment pieces I mentioned. So what your saying is start off with something easy like free weights and then I can add on to my site more equipment as my business grows? what search engine should i use for the keywords?

Yeah, that is exactly the case. You can always diversify and cover a wider breadth of your niche as you build out your website, you just don't want to start out too broad or you are going to be in a constant state of overwhelm. Let us know if you have any further questions. ;)

Something to that direction but again do some research with Jaaxy.
Looks like free weight is quite competitive niche (image). As you can see there are keyword phrases you can explore by looking at the right hand side of Jaaxy. Use them and do more research to come up with something you are comfortable to be working with. Don't rush!

Hope that gives the idea how to proceed.

remember a niche is a group of people. narrow down a gropu of people to talk to. so if you are going the fitness angle, than maybe cardio for ... who? Fitness is a tough niche, but can be cracked with a little work espeically if you are passionate about it.

regardless, do not let choosing a niche paralyze you. choose something and go to town. many people experience "paralysis by analysis". that is the surest way to never get started. even if a niche is too broad, having content on the site is better than still being stuck on a niche selection, understand?

I know it is easy to want to work within many niches at once, 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.

I am having trouble with my niche. I have decided I want it to be somewhere in the pet product niche, but that it not narrow enough. I have a bearded dragon, so I am interested in that niche. The problem is there are already popular websites out there already that I would be competing with. Would it be appropriate to narrow it done even further to bearded dragon decor, bearded dragon terrariums, or bearded dragon lighting? I could also do reptile decor, lighting, or terrariums to make it broader. I am not sure. Any advice?

I also have a question on how I would implement this niche. For example, if I choose bearded dragon terrarium decor, how would I turn that into a website? Would I write reviews or articles about bearded dragons? or would I just make categories of products and place the links of items I am trying to sell there? Basically what I am asking is should I make the website obviously a shopping website or would it be better to hide the links in articles?

What is it that you really want to do about bearded dragons? What can you write in a sentence or paragraph that shows me the kind of site you hope to build. Competition is something you really don't need to consider unless there is nobody competing at all. Then you would want to ask why there isn't anyone else doing this?
Reply
JackieSmith Premium
First of, there will always be competition out there which makes this business interesting. Look at what your competitors are doing and try and go one above them.

If your interest is in the bearded dragon, then go for it. Nothing worse than working on something you have no interest in.

Bearded dragon decor, bearded dragon terrariums etc can be potential post ideas on your site.
Then you can group them into categories i.e. lighting, decor etc.


You can then sign up with Affiliate Networks that sell lighting, decor, kit, supplies etc and insert the affiliate links into your posts.

For example you might talk about the types of lighting suited for a dragon you can then insert your affiliate links to the different lighting types.

Hope this helps.
NB To find affiliate programs type the following into Google bearded dragon + affiliate programs. I just did and some interesting sites and ideas came up.

All the best!

I would like to be a affiliate for bearded dragon products at amazon and petstores. I could maybe make an informative website with links in the articles. I could also go the opposite direction I make a website purely for shopping with no articles. I am not quite sure which way to go. I am interested in bearded dragons, but I am not sure how that would translate into revenue in a website. Should I narrow down the bearded dragon niche in your opinion? If I narrow it down, I am not sure how I could put out new content. How much can you really write about bearded dragon lighting?

Hi Valerie,
Great questions! I think a niche website focused on bearded dragon owners sounds great. The focus is narrow but not so narrower that you wouldn't have a ton of things to write about. I wouldn't worry at all about the competition. In every niche, there are still a ton of low-competition keywords that you can target to help you rank high in the search engines.

You definitely want to write helpful content that appeals to your niche because that is how you will draw in traffic. The great thing about affiliate marketing is that you connect people with things they're already searching for. A shopping website is not the way to go because no one will find your site.

I frankly admit that I don't know anything about bearded dragons but after spending about 2 minutes doing keyword research, I see a whole bunch of very low competition keywords with decent traffic that it would not be hard to rank for.

Here are some of the keywords I spotted.

I'm sorry to hear about you losing your job.

However, your experience can help someone else.

People go through grief and depression and will seek ways to overcome it. By using your own experience and enlightening others on what you have done you are helping them.

Nothing better than a personal testimony.

So you have listed 3 ideas ..To see what is trending, have you tried entering the phrases into Twitter to see what questions are being asked?
You can then decide on which is the 'best' niche to choose. However, these 3 'topics' are intertwined somewhat so you will probably end up writing about them in one way or another.

Write posts about what to do to raise your own birds.

Hello!

First off, I hope you are doing well here in WA! In regards to your question, I just wanted to share my experience in trying to choose a niche and how to apply it to a website and audience.

I initially went with computer programming (which is a broad subject) but narrowed it down to computer programming for beginners. This defined my topic and audience and gave me some great ideas for content (tutorials, opinion articles, news on computer programming, etc). It also gives me some great potential products to eventually have on my website (computer programming books, online courses, etc).

I enjoy computer programming and want to share my passion with others. It sounds like you enjoy cutting hair and want to share your knowledge with others. The fact that you picked something you enjoy or have experience with is great. It makes it a lot easier when writing content.

Along with hair cutting clippers, maybe you add or consider hair styling products, hair care products, etc. You could go a lot of directions with it!

Overall, I think you do have a good niche idea... just think about what type of articles you would write and maybe even start researching keywords using Jaaxy that relate to hair cutting clippers.

The ideas will start churning!

Good luck with everything! Cheers!

I have several ideas for a possible niche. Does a website only have the ability to center on one niche or can it be evolved to include several different ones? Say you are interested in the occult but also health and wellness, Can you make your site available for both? Why do you have to choose between a niche of your own or the affiliate niche? Doesn't the more you cover help bring traffic for multiple things help people learn about and buy other products that may be related but not necessarily apart of the initial niche they were looking for? Should you have more than one website to affiliate with different niches? Does this help make more affiliate marketing money to you by including yourself in different programs and companies?

Hi! To start with PLEASE only do one narrow niche. It's more work than you can realize right now. Later you can start other websites for each niche. The reason for a single niche is that you are trying to be seen as an "authority" site for your niche. Think of Amazon, what are they an authority in? Nothing is the answer. They are just a big unpersonable retail store online.

Think of how you would feel if you went to an online baby clothing site and suddenly saw posts about Wiccan topics. Would you think something doesn't match here? Probably yes. And, then you'd be off to look at something more on topic.
Best of luck to you.

To add to the answers already provided, your one niche can have several ways of monetization and several products or services to promote. One niche doesn’t minimize your earnings in anyway. You only need one site to make 4 or 5 figures. It’s also highly not recommended to do more than one site to start as your work will be spread thinner and your results for each will be much slower.

You can start with a narrow niche like how to train your dog, and everything on there will be specifically about training dogs.

As your site gains authority and traffic then you can branch out to proper diets for dogs, or dog carriers, etc.

Why focus on a smaller niche to start is so you can rank easier with more specific keywords for your niche. Keywords are your site’s lifeline as that is what will drive traffic to your site.

You will learn more about everything as you keep going with the lessons and you’ll understand more why the courses are structured the way they are.

I hope this clarifies it more but ask more questions if you still have them. :)

I grew up in 90's and my one and only thing that I can remember is that I spent a lot of times playing video games and up to this day I still play video games but not as often. Can this be a niche? I know this is a very broad subject. Can someone helped me here?

Sure, it is an interesting niche with passionate audience. Video games niche is too board but you can find hundreds of subniches.

You can start with a specific genre of games, for a specific console, ages, or anything else you may think. Some sites are based on one video game. For example, I played Football manager some years ago and I know there are many websites and some forums only for this game.

If you narrow it down it can be a niche that’s for sure. You need to think about what it is these people want to know, have questions about or want more info on. Also can you and do you want to write 100 - 150 posts about the subject?

As I am my whole life a jeweler, that niche won't be difficult for me. But I also know that there is a very small market for that and the transportation of those products is very very hard. So I also have a problem to choose a right niche that fits me.
Reply
Bryan8 Premium
I would suspect, from the number of jewelry stores that I see, that the demand is huge. If you could do a blog that features posts on exactly what to look for to find quality jewelry, sizing, popular gifts, etc I would expect you to do very well.

Sure, there are lots of stores and sites out there, but how many will tell you the truth about what to look for? Mostly they will talk up their own product. Be different. Don't try to monetize at all for the first six months or so and then only on maybe 1 out of 3 posts. People will get to know, respect, and trust you. When they trust you that is when the magic happens.

Do some keyword research in Jaaxy (under research in left sidebar) I suspect that you will be surprised. Make sure to check for terms like how to buy quality jewelry, 10 tips to buy the best engagement ring, etc.

Best of luck to you. I think you may have a gold mine on your hands!

Hi Kelli,
I can understand it could be challenging to start off when you have so many ideas come together and you ended not knowing which to choose as your first project. I would suggest to list them down and choose one that you think you are most passionate now. The rest will be good for your next website.

Focus on one niche now so that you can focus on building the site. Do some keyword research and see if there are people looking for the keyword or phrases around the niche you have chosen.

All the best to you.

Really helpful video here, guys. I love the concept of doing what you are really passionate about. So my passion is music and I was thinking about traditional musical instruments around the world. Like for example in Bulgaria a traditional instrument is the bagpipe, in Greece - bouzouki, in Hawaii - ukulele and so on and so on. Does this sound like a good niche? I personally had searched for stuff like that and I was wondering if this is a nice idea?

Perimenopause support - I don't think that's overly broad, but I am interested in hearing from anyone who might think it would be good to narrow that.

I love sports especially football and I really get into the details of the game. Looking at each position matchup to see who has the advantage, going over a teams favored defensive scheme compared to the opponents offensive scheme. With how big fantasy football is as well as people just betting on games, is it better to go towards football sportswear instead of something that helps picking fantasy players or teams each week? It’s always been a hobby to looker closer at the game and has helped pick a high percentage of fantasy winners and even higher game winners, but wasn’t positive if that is a good direction to go compared to Football gear to wear.

Why not use your expertise on this in-depth football knowledge and help people make a decision on which team to bet on? Make your content help them making the decision for the next big match to come up. If you manage to do this correctly people will start paying you for your next estimate ;)

I have one niche that I am certain of and I have already started with the website. However, apart from this, in the future i would like to focus on a more personal blog (let's say, different ideas for spending valuable time together for the whole family). I was wondering: what do you think about using such a personal blog also for online marketing? I have many doubts about it but I see that others are doing it successfully. What do you think? I mean in such case I am really personally recommending something. Doesn't it make me less reliable in general if people know that I want to sell them something?

Miałem podobne wątpliwości. Wiesz Aniu, cała sztuka polega na tym, żeby nie zaczynać od sprzedawania. Wszyscy tutaj powiedzą Ci, żebyś najpierw pomagała Twoim potencjalnym czytelnikom, a dopiero później myślała o zarabianiu. Wiem, wiem, to pachnie pustosłowiem i hipokryzją, ale to rzeczywiście tak działa.

Jeśli to, o czym piszesz, będzie wartościowe i ludzie rzeczywiście będą tego szukać, to nie tylko nie uznają Cię za 'less reliable', ale wręcz będą chcieli się "odwdzięczyć" (przynajmniej niektórzy) i celowo kupią dana rzecz przez Twój link, chociaż będą mieli inne możliwości.

W Stanach wszyscy blogerzy mają obowiązek wyraźnie informować odwiedzających, że używają Affiliate links. Ci nalepsi już wcześniej wcale tego nie ukrywali i podobno z ich doświadczenia wynika, że to nie tylko nie zmniejszyło ich wiarygodności, ale wręcz zwiększyło zaufanie do nich.
Oczywiście pod warunkiem, że promowali produkty i uskugi, które były naprawdę wartościowe, a nie wciskali chłamu.

Reasumując, wydaje mi się, że możesz pisać osobistego bloga i - jakby przy okazji - coś polecać. Jeśli to coś będzie naprawdę dobre i Ty sama będziesz do tego przekonana, to myślę, że nikt nie będzie Ci miał za złe, że trochę na tym zarobisz. Nawet biorąc poprawkę na polską mentalność:-)

Jest natomiast inna sprawa. Chodzi mianowicie o to, żeby nie robić zbyt wielu rzeczy na raz, szczególnie na początku. Ja, na przykład, zrobiłem ten błąd. Mam tyle 'dobrych pomysłów', że żadnego jeszcze nie udało mi się zrealizować. Czasu nie starcza mi na prowadzenie jednej strony, a uparcie próbuję prowadzić trzy. Może więc warto skupić się na tej jednej niszy, której jesteś pewna, a jak Ci już dobrze pójdzie, zabrać się za następną.
Ale się upisałem. Chyba muszę kończyć, bo będą się domagać, żebym pisał po angielsku:-)
Powodzenia

As a lawyer, I have an interest in civil rights, animal rights, disability rights, and service dog use and training. I'm not sure if it's too small a niche to attract enough traffic. The broader niche I like is pet care, which I know is a large area. There are service dog services/items that could be advertised on the first type of site, and of course everything pet for the second. I will do more research but at this point, I'm more interested in staying away from legal content and creating content that is more generally related to pet care. Thoughts?
Reply
onmyownterms Premium
I think a narrower niche like service animals is better than 'pet care' - for one thing, you'll be doing the community a HUGE favor, and if intimately familiar with the subject matter, you'll quickly gain authority and market share for your site.
Reply
goobygirl Premium
Thank you. It's a narrow area of interest but there's a lot of legal misinformation out there and there are products and services to link to such a site. It could also be a larger topic niche such as disability in general with links to medical equipment, content on disability-related topics, including legal topics, legal referral services, etc. With 20% of all Americans being disabled and an ever-aging population, disability continues to be a big area.

I would think if I could create enough traffic to the site that lawyers would be interested in having a legal referral link with me to gain new clients. The one thing I know about people using service animals is that there are very few lawyers who even know the law, let alone practice it, so a lot of legal issues that arise while using a service animal are self-help or handled through over-burdened government agencies like the DOJ or a state's civil rights agency. As a service dog user, trainer and lawyer, I have a unique perspective on what happens in denial of public accommodation/housing issues involving service animals, disabilities, and how someone might be able to help themselves in a situation in which they cannot find or hire an attorney.

So, there's a lot of topics to write about and I think I would easily be able to research and focus on the top issues affecting service dog users and/or people encountering disabilities quite easily. I could probably write all day long! LOL

Pet care had me thinking of birds, reptiles, hamsters, rabbits etc. I think pet care is a large niche and I have not even touched on the exotic. I would try and narrow it down Wendy.

Thanks Harvey! The animal species used as service animals in the United States is now legally limited to dogs and miniature horses. However, the related area of assistance animals (animals belonging to disabled individuals not trained to specifically assist a disabled person, but providing comfort in housing situations), therapy animals, and companion animals (pets) includes more animal species and I can comfortably write on all those legal topics and explain and explore the differences. So you could have technically an assistance animal that is a hamster and would like to know how to legally keep your hamster when you are mentally or physically disabled and your landlord wants Hammie out!

I'm really excited about the area and can see another site or perhaps related topics on legal pet issues such as dog bites, when the state can take and euthanize your dog, and broader legal topics on pet/animal ownership.

For example, I was shocked to learn my state has a law that allows anyone to make a report about a dogfight without actually witnessing the fight, without being injured or incurring damages from the fight, resulting in the dog being seized and euthanized. So you could literally hear second hand about a fight and have someone's dog taken and killed!

I am sure there are many people who have dog bite and legal issues resulting from stray dogs, dangerous dogs, and the like. Not to mention, there's been a lot of news lately about people traveling with service animals and pets on planes (restaurants and places of public accommodation as well) and all the issues there, including how do you protect your service animal around people with untrained pets/owners.

I'm not sure about building an online user forum, but I know that there are thousands of complaints to the government for disability discrimination regarding service animals. A user forum would allow people to help each other and provide a basis for legal referral to law firms or state agencies. So it could provide an outlet for frustrated users and also build a community (and followers!). I see it as possibly become very heavy on the admin end so I think it is something I would grow after putting other parts of the site together first.

I agree with @onmyownterms here Wendy. I think "legal issues for people with service animals" is a very interesting and specific niche to work with. Or even "legal issues for pets" or "navigating the world with a service animal"...any of those three ideas could be good niche website ideas.

My personal favorite is "navigating the world with a service animal" because it's a more personal tone, and I think legal writing would be dry and boring. You're the attorney though! Maybe you find that interesting :)

My only advice would be to avoid running a forum right now. People can comment on your articles, and you can discuss with them that way. Once you start a forum, it's really easy to get bogged down with spam and other issues when you let people run their own discussions. Modding a forum takes time, and usually can only be monetized with Adsense, which doesn't pay much.

Thanks for the insight! I've written three posts so far and am going to outline how what topics I want to write first. There's going to be more chatty posts and then the nitty gritty legal posts, which people need when they get denied service.

Not the technical aspect, but more of how it looks and how to make it seamless. Do you have any example pages?

I have just started the hobby (sewing) and would like to document my journey from needle and thread to making clothes (hopefully!)

You can earn a great deal of money when you have a following and then incorporate courses (either your own or those you recommend) and being an affiliate for higher ticket items such as sewing machines, fabrics, etc. Let me know if you want to bounce ideas around, you can always PM me.

I think sewing is a very desirable hobby in our day. A lot of people are into that,and I believe it is growing. People are often looking for creative sewing projects and how to do them. They often will go to Pintrest, which connects them to blogs. Providing education about products would be very good in the sewing field because many are just getting started. Simple projects is what more people want.

I thought I had my niche figured out, but now after watching this video, I'm not so sure. I am very passionate about history, and am constantly learning more. My plan was to start a "On This Day in American History" type blog. I figured that the Amazon affiliate program would work well with this if a reader wanted to delve deeper into related books or videos.
With this blog, content would be very easy for me to generate, but is the idea too broad? Is my idea too focused on content and not enough on an actual product?

It sounds a good niche to me Jason. Definitely they are people who you can target with this niche - student, people who make research about American history, people who love to read history etc. I believe you have the idea and once you affirm with the niche you should proceed.

Hello Jason, it is a good niche. There is a lot of Modern history that has not surfaced yet. It can work but you have to determine the areas in American history that you will include in your posts. Will the areas be all inclusive or focus on what is already in the history books or will you search out the history that is not being told. I think that would attract me as an avid reader of truthful history, not the history told from the conqueror’s perspective.

Hi JoD1, you are bit correct that there are no links available to choose your niche.
Re: Keywords, it is not your niche. Your keywords should justify your Niche. Niche is much broader concept.

For example, you decided your Niche as electronic devices but which electronic device, say it a Television, Washing machine, Fridge. It can be anything you like. Make your Niche in which you find fun in learning and helping others.

And also on the affiliate marketing side. This is where my question is. Where I need opinions. I was thinking of one website. Where I would have pages for categories. Well to separate The different items that I am promoting. Like a education page, a digital product page, a page for material, physical items. ect. A affiliate marketing super store. But not to big. Not to wide of range. of course I would have to create a custom funnel. But then I can promote several items in one website. My website. and of course the site that the product owner has with the product. allot of them do. But I can also source my own product to slip into the super site as well.
It is just a thought in rough now. A way of having several affiliate items in one website. Without advertising it that way. Its hard to write it down the way i'm thinking it. I guess my question is. Is this just the stupidest thing heard of. Or how hard would it be ( knowing the targeting problem ). To get traffic to a affiliate supersite. If a custom funnel is designed for it.
Another niche of mine is. ( Real home businesses. With great income potential. And little to no startup investment.). That will be a BLOG site. To help keep people from throwing away their last few bucks on some scam, or something that doesn't work. There I said way to much.
Thank You for reading. And your opinions.

(pilots pride).

I would suggest doing the training and associated tasks for a narrow niche website. Once you see just how much work is involved in just a narrow niche you might not be so keen on trying to be the next Amazon....

Sorry but I would not second the idea. I would suggest choose one first that really you can start fast. See, Google normally see a website from the theme of topic the site present. If you build a website with many different and not related items, which particular niche that the site will present?
You already have many ideas. I would suggest break them down into different niches instead of combing them into one site.

My opinion.

Yea. I would almost have to make up a key word that would describe a mix of things. Your right. The funnel would have to atract people from each catigory and suck them all in to one site. could be difficult. So yea. I will stick with the conventional way. And I will just stick some links in my blog site here and there.eded
Thanks for the insight. Thats what I needed.

I have a financial background and experience in alternative financing. I would like to start working on the site which will educate people how and where to choose the best source to loan money - peer2peer financing, installment loans, title loans etc. I did a quick research on google and it seems there is no tough competition in terms of educating and navigating people. On the other hand there are plenty of fruitful affiliates programs from established lenders.
Guys, I would greatly appreciate your insights and opinions on this topic.

Sure, this could definitely be a direction you head. I would narrow it down to ONE of these concepts within the finance world, I would choose the one that resonates with you the most. ;)

I will be working the same niche I have been interested in for a long time now. Small business is the genre I have been involved with for quite some time now. The difference is that now I will focus on New Businesses, I would then like to take it a step further and specialize in Tools and resources for people who are starting or thinking about starting a business. I have knowledge on the subject and I find it interesting and exciting. I also feel that I can provide a valuable service by helping people find the information and tools they need on one website rather than having to scour the internet and guess at what they need and where to find it. By choosing to go with this niche I also have an opportunity to keep learning and apply what I learn to my blog and my marketing content.

So yesterday I was thinking about doing world/ethnic foods as my niche. However, I think it would be too hard. Another think I love is coffee. I am now thinking about doing coffee mugs, cups and tumblers as my niche. Since I'm new and this is my first try at this, I'd love some feedback. Do you guys think this could work?

Most anything can work as a niche. Can you write 2- 1,000 word posts per week about this niche for a year? If you can you can probably make it work, BUT what is your commission going to be on a coffee mug? Most Amazon products are in the 4-5% range. How many would you have to sell to make it worth your while?

Thanks! Answering the question, can I write a couple 1000 word posts per week is a good way to think about this. I think I'll probably rethink my niche a bit. There's so much to think about when starting out with all of this. I guess if I don't do something related to coffee, I'll end up with something dog related.

Dogs are always a popular niche! You had mentioned world/ethnic foods as well. If you could write this much about that subject you could probably sell, specialty ingredients, special cooking tools, and even appliances..... Think of the commissions on say, a Sub Zero refrigerator. You could also create and sell your own recipe book(s), or have a membership site with cooking videos. Limit your niche, but expand your thinking within that niche!

Best of luck to you!

I'm a bit lost about choosing my niche.

Basically, there are tow directions I am considering. I know the subject should be something you're passionate about, but for me I think I need something I'm kind of interested in and want to learn more about, because otherwise I'll be just way too involved and my inner perfectionist will keep kicking in.

Eventually I want to understand internet marketing well enough to run my own successful website promoting my own wire sculpture and illustration, but I have a feeling that for me it would be easier to learn on something less emotional for me.

My two main ideas are either just going with the bootcamp or picking out a niche somehow related to wire sculpture, art and illustration.

1. Starting out with the Bootcamp.
The good thing here is that I am really interested in the subject, and I will obviously naturally have new content as I learn about the stuff. And I'll probably have max support with this program. However, I'm kind of woried that this niche may be just way too competitive, and maybe I should choose something more narrow.
But in general, blogging about my learning process and (hopefully) success feels like a good way to enhance the learning process.

2.Starting out with an art/wire sculpture/illustration relatedniche.
The good thing is that this is something I'm interested in, and the audience I can eventually gain in a niche like that is likely not only to bring me affiliate profit, but also to be interested in my own sculpture and illustration I am eventually planning to promote. So it's kind of a double win in a way.
But at the same time, I'm worried that everything art related is way more emotional for me, and I'm going to have big perfectionism attacks while creating content, so there's a big risk of getting stuck.

I am really overwhelmed by this, any ideas?

I really like the idea of doing wire sculpture. I can see you doing youtube videos and lots of illustrations as well. Accept the challenge to not be perfect. You are going to learn that when you start out writing the content for your niche, you will want it to come from your brain through your fingers perfect and it is not going to happen.
Dare to be imperfect.. When your future customers see this they will not be intimidated.by a very niche subject. It will also look more natural. I think.

I would like to advice you to chose No 2 first.
Reason is simple, once you progress with it. You will use it for Bootcamp as a success example

I must say it was overwhelming for me , didnt know what niche to choose. I asked myself what I really love, yes I love skin care, colour cosmetics and mostly how to make these. Although this is a great niche i also love sharing information and these days people want to know how to start a business online, so i found my niche, :-)

I have a lot of houseplants, both indoors and out.Would like to make that my niche, but am trying to make it a little more specific. For instance, which plants prefer to grow indoors, even which fruit trees might thrive in doors, etc...then there are the ones that do much better outside on a porch or in full sun. All comments appreciated!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you could certainly head in the"house plants" direction with your niche.

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. :)

I hope I'm understanding this correctly. Choosing a niche should be something I'm interested in, yet I don't need to have working knowledge about. Or should it be something I'm interested in, have a small amount of knowledge about but would like to learn more? I would like to promote Travel through WV Fly Fishing. Do I understand that would be considered a market? I would need to narrow that down to say Fly Fishing Rods?
Thanks for any input.

Sounds like you've narrowed it down already. Why not promote fly fishing tours and from that you can specify best rods, flies, reel, clothing, accommodation etc for a particular tour.
The opportunities are endless

I have a couple of passions that i could use as my niche and that's what's giving me sort of a hard time trying to figure out which ine to go with. Im a barber student and im currently in barbering school to get my masters barbering license. Barbering is a passion of mines and has been for many years. So i was thinking since im already in the that field and it's a passion of mines that i could promote barber products. Im also a dog lover, owner and breeder so i was thinking on promoting dogs products.

Both sound like excellent ideas. Things people are always going to take care of, themselves and their pets. Good Choices

Im thinking about my niche being living green. Iv not always lived green but i would like to. And its something id like to learn more about too. Is it a good idea to have your niche be something you dont know much about? Its my passion to be able to live green one day, just never startded. Maybe this will help me out. I could advertise eco friendly products. I could blog about what products are better for our enviroment, the products i use, and tips for living green.
What do you think?

As long as you have that passion or even the slightest interest of learning, you can definitely make it work Jolena. And with "living green" you can and will definitely learn as you go. Man, I really like that one, lol.

Wonderful to hear, a niche can be literally anything that you want and EVERY niche can be very lucrative. As you build out your website/brand/authority in any niche, the success element is a natural byproduct.

Thanks for the video taring! Love WA and I am only here for a couple of hours so far.
One big question I have is, must my niche be country based or not? I am in South Africa and I am not sure if I will be able to build my sight with say dollar affiliated programs? Or will I learn this later?
