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
  • Understanding Affiliate Bootcamp
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.

I guess my main concern in choosing a niche is to choose one that is not saturated with so many people promoting the same product or product lines that there is too much competition for customers.

The statement that niche = audience makes easy for me to think about my niche. Because if I can talk to my audience about something I am familiar to or about a problem I want to help them to resolve (because I was there); then creating content will be natural for myself :) and easy!

Thanks, Kyle!

There is nothing stopping you from promoting WA on your own niche website. However, it's not likely to convert very many people as that is not the reason why people are visiting your site.
I tried doing this a while ago and it didn't lead to a single conversion. I have a site about contact lenses and I showed some WA banners and posted a WA review on it. But people go to my site because they want to find out about contact lenses, not about how to make money online. I did much better by showing contact lens ads instead of WA. That's been my experience.

My passions and skills are in the areas of child and adolescent mental health and behavioral health. There are a lot of products I can recommend with personal and professional experience, and I can think of plenty of content. But is this too broad to be a good niche?

Should I instead focus on something more specific like their emotional regulation and emotional expression? Or specific diagnosis? This will be more difficult to come up with as much content, but if it what makes more sense, then I need to drill down and find something that will be a good fit..

BethTerrell Premium
Hi, Janaeles. My suggestion would be to either find a common thread that will allow those different things to fit under one niche (only if they have the same target audience) or to start with the one you're most passionate about and could generate the most material for. Then once that site is performing well, make a different site for one of the others if you have the time and inclination.
Reply
NeBro Premium
Agree with Beth, the articles need to be related otherwise you are running a general info site...which is not a niche...

If you want to do other material then do so, there is nothing stopping you, just focus on the niche you have chosen first, learn your craft then apply it to the other subject areas that you would like to cover.

I think that's a great niche and you will find a ton of resources to inspire writing as well as a lot of great products to review and promote. The sky is the limit in a niche like this.

You can blog about buying organic vs local, the potential dangers of GMOs and the list could go on and on.

That's a great niche with lots of long term potential. I mean, literally, you could target so many topics that you'd never run out of tasks.

That being said, I'd start by trying to tackle your favorite part of this niche and really explore that niche first. The more specific you are, the better when you start.

This will allow you to target a particular niche group and then expand as your business expands.

Go for it if you love it.

Self-help is a huge area, I think I would narrow it down to a specific subject to offer self-help on.I to love self-books and use them a lot. For instance, when my washer broke down some time back I found a self-help book on repairing household appliances and with it I figured out that the machine wasn't broken, the "dog clutches" just needed to be replaced. It not only saved me having to replace the machine, it saved me calling a repair man to replace a two dollar part that only took me 5 minutes to do. So, yes I think self-help is a great niche, as I said I would think about narrowing to a specific area of interest.

God bless and have a wonderful, prosperous WA day. Remember, set a pace for yourself and a pace doesn't mean fast just steady.

Again, Have a wonderful day.

The affiliate bootcamp is training on how you can build your website around promoting the Wealthy Affiliate program.

You're basically telling folks about how they can start an online business using the awesome WA way. If they sign-up as free members and ascend to premium, you receive a monthly recurring commission, something like $22 per month for as long as someone stays subscribed.

Many WA members do this exclusively since it's a program they believe in. The FREE training is awesome such that when people come in, they are more willing to stick around and get the premium membership.

Hope this helps.

depends, if you are wanting to promote say fishing ( a niche I use) pinpoint what part of the sport you want to write about or know the most about. For example, I write about the large flathead and blue catfishing> then about catfishing tournaments> then about tackle and bait I use. And in every step I have in mind how can I help the person that is reading my blog improve their fishing.

The Thing about a niche at least I have found and I am in no way an expert is, write what you know about and are passionate about. Do not write about what you think you can make the most money from, write about what you can help your reader with if you write to sell a product without the intent to help the person chances are you're going to fail.

My niche will be guitar related, at the moment I am thinking pretty broad in that I would probably like to give reviews on anything from guitar lesson websites to guitar strings and anything in between, in other words my website would be a one stop shop for advice on most things associated with guitar, might this be overkill or would it be better to concentrate on just one area, for instance only giving reviews on guitar lesson websites.
Thank You.

Take a look at some guitar related sites to get a sense for how folks are organizing. There is no shortage of angles.

The question isn't broad vs. narrow as much as are you going to be able to dedicate the time to write on all the topics you suggested?

You may be looking at a half-finished website for a while which may lead to discouragement maybe even abandonment of your project.

In addition, I think there's always the thought that we'll leave money on the table if we go too narrow. But you don't need a million visitors to have a profitable website.

Smaller niches allow you to go deeper on any one subject. They give you authority and allow you to stand out because now you're the Wordpress guy (instead of just another online marketer), or the classic guitar guy or whatever sub-niche you are in.

A guitar related site can go in many directions. Choose 2-3 related topics and build each out in succession. Take what you learn on the first topic and apply to the others.

When you have established a stable site with visitors, rinse and repeat with another set of related topics.

Good luck.

Yes, higher commissions produce more income. Amazon however pays for products that you don't promote so there is a possibility of higher commissions based on other factors.
Reply

High priced items may require a longer sales cycle. However, you are correct. Your commissions will be significantly more with higher ticket items.

There are many reputable affiliate companies that sell high-demand, high-quality and high-ticket items.

Check out Tecademics, for example, which was founded by Chris Record.

The key is having a good sales funnel or sales system in place and being able to attract the right visitors who are looking for what you are promoting.

Send me a PM if you need more info on Tecademics.

Good luck on your online journey.

You can choose just about any topic that's of interest to enough people. Crochet would work but you don't have to go with a hobby.

It can be another interest of yours or something you want to learn more about and would enjoy researching and writing about.

I'm trying to choose a niche, and I feel like something related to books and reading is perfect. But I don't have an interest in one specific genre of books. Is the niche of books in general too broad? Thanks!
Reply
gkarakey Premium
Describe your perfect visitor to your site and the top 2 or 3 things they would gain or learn from coming to you vs. someone else.

Sometimes we feel that if we go too narrow, we'll leave money on the table. But I would argue that the opposite is true.

When you go narrower, called niche-ing down (i.e. Kindle Paperwhite readers), your message takes on focus. People will feel a bond with you because you are targeting their specific needs and even using the language they would use.

You can call your ideal prospects out in your ads or your content: (Hey Kindle Paperwhite readers, wanna know how you can maximize your reading experience?)

You can start with a narrower focus, like a genre, fiction vs. non-fiction or the one big promise you want to deliver to your prospects and build that out with cornerstone content.

Then, when you're having a little success, make that first section a pillar of your site and create a second pillar, another genre or another big, bold promise that readers would love.

Good luck.

Although this is an interesting viewpoint that you put forward, I do think that you could be almost 'forcing' people into finding a niche before they are really ready to do so. Eddy Salomon has an alternative view on this point, and I do tend to agree with him.
For those of us that may be somewhat more 'matured' (age-wise that is!) sometimes all of this 'new-leaning' can take some time to be digested.

I have alotof hi.e remedies and I do all the quilting in our homes. Every bed has a quilt made from granny. I've sold them on eBay before. I'd also like to bring in vitamins and talk about 45 years and on with grandchildren. You see I lost my parents when in was 13 so very close to the family I have. It's been tough not having a mom to talk me threw menopause and the over counter meds that work as good as the not so good. 5 years ago in was building à tree house with the kids, this year a knee replacement that my body is rejecting. Alot of health issues I know about because I owned. Home in Snohomish, WA that house 6 Alzheimer's. Loved that job. I also have N invention Davison is trying to help me get going. They love the idea, just haven't came up with the money to do it all. It well be awesome and in the same line as my Niche. So I'm asking for advice.

Hi Joleen,

I'm not sure I know what your specific question is. Is there a specific niche idea you had in mind, if so what exactly is the niche you're thinking about. Is it quilting? I couldn't really follow what you were saying.
That said whatever your niche idea may be, I would recommend that it meets what Ive laid out here: and the training. A lot of times our friends and family may think a website idea may be great. But they're not thinking of all the elements that are laid out in the training and in the article i just listed. So I would make sure your idea does. I hope this helps.

Amazon has products in that niche, but once your site is a bit bigger, I would partner with other companies.

We all know sex sells. So it can definitely work. You can write review on certain products. Read the following though to finalize your niche idea:

I would like to promote others products within the health field. Vitamins, herbal or natural supplements and eating healthy. Well I guess I don't have to choose my own niche.I guess I will need to get much help there.

Things you sell yourself??
Because I affiliate at last four Natural Suppliment stores so far... and health coverage. Doesn't sound like you were paying attention to the training -at all-. He uses WealthyAffiliate as an example. YOU go apply for your own things to promote, then make a site talking about them, and giving them your affiliate link you so make your money when they click on it...

My target audience is in Guyana but presently I'm living in the UK, how will my niche reach my target audience?

You need to think how you will generate traffic and how people will find you. Where you live is not related to what is your site and what is your niche.
Chose right keywords for google ranking, become a part of Guyana Facebook groups where you could share your site or find related forums.

Hi my thought is to write about what I know really well for now, which is my where I come from and everything about my culture. Hopefully I attract the globe travelers....so my niche...on the east coast of kiwi land...(that was a song that we wrote when I was 7 for our school concert). Hmm a thought.

My focus will be hip hop artist's that are trying to build a fanbase organically & make money from their music!

that sounds like a niche to me...there must be many artists seeking that solution. you need to do some research on that audience and deliver the goods...stay dedicated...

I've made the decision to choose plus size women lingerie/ underwear/ bras/ clothing etc. But what button or direction to go to let that be known?

Hi tinacp25
All the best with the niche you have chosen. It is truly a wonderful journey when you follow and progress each stage of the courses.

Hi there, people will find your site performing a google search. So first you need to create a lot of articles about your niche.
How are you planning to help people in your niche? What type of articles are you going to write? why people would visit your site and not the clothing company's site straight away? These are some question you need to consider

Okay, so I want to use adult dating as my niche. I checked out a few affiliates and went to sign up for one and them it asked me to fill out a bunch of stuff, Then I got to the part where it asked for a tax id number and the name of my website. The wheels in my head came to a screeching halt. Now what? I havent even come up with a name and dont have a tax id.

If your interested in your topic and its something that you really want to pursue then it usually helps if you follow an order of sorts. The training has been ordered in a great way so maybe its best you just follow it and most questions are answered that way. However for a tax id i think thats just a standard one which depends on what country you live in so a percentage of your income goes for tax purposes.

If your unsure about your topic because of competition and all that you can always use the keyword tool to help you see the competition, but as i said thats all covered in the courses

best of luck

Definitely come up with a domain as a lot of these affiliate programs require you to have a website. Your tax id will usually be your SS #.

Is elderly care products too broad for a niche?
Reply

As long as you can get it down to specifics and the most relevant product and best quality. Focus on an endless growth of products to promote and sell.

Thanks for the help
it does narrow it down for me

Elderly care in what respect? Is it for people that are able to care for themselves? People that live in a home? Or are they products for people caring for the elderly?

Focus on a specific group of people.

Hey guys do you think weight loss can still be a good niche? Or it can be too saturated? Anyone else who is also working in this niche? Please please please help!
Reply
Beid Premium
A great way to find out if a niche is too saturated is by planning ahead first. So think of your websites name, think of its title and three page names and check them out on the keyword tool. Thats how you can easily find out how easy it is to get into any niche. your looking for a search number over 50 and a QSR under 200
Happy Hunting

Hi there,

I haven't any experience using the keyword tool as I am relatively new in online marketing. can you point me in the right direction if there's any tutorial on WA?

Also, what do search number and QSR mean?

Thanks

what if my niche is a group of niches that all work together for a certain outcome? So is it all right to have multiple niches that all go together is what I am say?
Reply

Sure you can if those niches are narrowed already. You can use a few on the same site if they're all related.

FrankieTrill Premium
Thank you little mama that works for me because I have a few niches and one help the other to happen so I have to figure how I'm gonna put it together. I have to go premium before I put it together
Reply

Just make sure your site is not too broad that's all. If your multiple niches are really narrow anyway, then I say that's okay to group them.

Yes go Premium! :)

Pfft. Having just one is alright. Through the rest of this course, he'll be teaching you how to make it actually WORK, You've got this. Just a hands-on training method. <3

Don't even worry about it, It's not a test, just a hands-on first-time worksheet, basically. You're amazing for wanting to be perfect, though, I admire that, don't stop the training and the stubborn "I WILL NOT FAIL" attitude. You're going to make it far. <3

I have all these ideas that i would like to do. Then the problem is i end up not knowing where to start! i think i over think things way too much and end up with a whole load of ideas in my head and still nothing concrete... i can um and ar about what to choose for weeks!! Now as im writing this i;m thinking maybe i should just make ideas a niche in itself!! Can you do that? I mean like an idea factory! i need to be more decisive.

Pick one to learn with, as you get more experienced you can always start another that fits better.

I've got what you've got. Idea's followed by planning, thinking, mapping... NO DOING.

Procrastination has killed me. The only cure I've found for myself is to restrict my time. Give me all the time in the world and I'll take it, and still get nothing done!

If I restrict my time to an hour or two and accept that what I produce will be 80% of what I'm looking for, I start producing.

This small momentum seems to break the spell.

Every action produces a reaction if it's bad learn from it, if it's good learn from it.

Restricting my 'planning' time has worked well for me.

Nike has this down too... "Just Do IT"
