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.

A question I've had for some time about niches is what is the best way to know if a particular niche or sub-niche will fill a need in the market so that we do not spend too much time trying to sell a product only to find out that there aren't any customers who want your product.

this is one of the reasons you are shown that it is best to choose a niche you know - this way you know the problems you have and can help others with your knowledge.
if you are going for a niche you don't know them find where the niche hang out- what they talk about- what are their problems- and can you help them.
just remember you don't buy a product - you buy a solution.

Hello, I'm looking for an affiliate program to sell home appliances(for example, the niche will be "electric tools for carpentry),I know I have to take account of Cick Bank, Amazon, or others, but I do not know how to enter affiliate products on the site.In other words, how do I promote my affiliate program (products) on my site?Thank you for help!

Nicu,

Thanks for reaching out.

When you sign up for an Affiliate Program from Amazon or Clickbank or anywhere really, you will be given some sort of "affiliate link" you may need to log in to a marketing portion of the site and get your links in there or most likely you will receive an email with instructions. Then once you have your Affiliate link you can use that as the link to add to images of your products or in a post in the text.

The training here should show you how it works, but the best way is to add your link.

You have a WA Affiliate link already Go to $ icon at the top then Program details, then your link is at the top of the screen.

I'm sure others will have better comments for you on this but I hope this helps

Thanks for the information! I can write a lot about electric tools, not the writing is the problem ~ I am good at writing ~ I did not know how to proceed and you did light.

Kyle shows how the links work in the training. I'm not sure which lesson. Focus on your content first. You can go back and add Affiliate links strategically afterwards.

Jay has done some great demos in the video webinars about this and how it all works. Sometimes it is best to see it from someone else first. You need to be Premium to access them incase you decide to go that route.

Keep learning and apply what is taught and you will be fine.

Cheers

Hi.. video talks about choosing a niche based on your passion..: then goes on to show baby niches... there maybe money in baby rugs, etc... but how many people out there would have a passion for baby rugs? How could you make a site that ranks for baby rugs. Guess I’m confused to date... what do we do? Pick a niche that seems small enough that we can get it ranked and then simply post articles/blog posts about it or do we build a larger site based on a niche we are passionate about? I’ve been around awhile and it is hard to get ranked in google. So how would you do so with a niche like baby rugs? That would take a lot of writing/posting about a small topic? Then you talk about fitness equipment... ankle weights... are you suggesting someone does a site just dedicated to ankle weights, etc? Just looking for clarification. Thanks

Hi Robb
what Kyle is teaching is everyone is looking for something online to buy, sell, learn, teach and more and when you choose a niche it should be of interest to a lot of people
For example- lets say you chose Tennis for beginners. You could have best shoes, best rackets, best coaching
Saddles- Best Saddles for Western riding for men woman and children
It is about picking a subject you enjoy and creating a website based on this subject and you can choose to learn about anything as all the information you can find online is there to help you grow
I hope this helps

RobbCorbett Premium
Thanks Vicki... guess the thoughts in my head right now is how broad is to broad to get ranked and how small is to small for a niche to be profitable and be able to produce enough content about. The study of the Football Snack Helmets seemed really small of a niche and I was curious how he got ranked for it, or was it so small that he was the only one trying to get ranked for it and was able to. I'm sure it will all come together in the training videos for me. Thanks again. Cheers Robb

Originally, I planned to do something in global warming. I was very ambitious too, but not in a commercial sense. The site I envisioned would have struck fear in the heart of even an American marine! But I have put that on the back-burner because you don't really involve yourself in that field merely to make money, it's much too painful. So my first niche will be in pet's products, we have two dogs, three cats and my wife has her horse stabled not far away. To remind me of more important issues I have used, as my image, the last known photo of the Titanic sailing to a watery grave. It is is metaphor and quite melancholic isn't it?

I've always been into knives. There are many different types of knives but I'd hate to narrow it down to just 1 type of knife. I know if I were shopping on the web for knives I would want a variety but with a choice to search for a certain type of knife if I so choose. I guess my question is do I have to narrow it down to one type? Doing that just doesn't seem to make sense to me.

I think knives in general will be okay...:)

Dale123 Premium
You would narrow it down to a particular use... For example, somebody shopping for a bread knife likely isn't going to want to buy a military Swiss army knife. So some example niches would be "hiking knives" or "kitchen knives" or "camping knives" etc...
Reply
feigner Premium
but if you were shopping you would be shopping for a type - so a folder or a legal carry in xx or a bread knife.
i would seperate it into different types and create a general knife site, but blog about the one type until you are seen as someone who knows about that catagory.
remember that general knive stores have been around for ages, you will be up against them - so you could go for hunting knives or outdoor knives or camping knives.
this will narrow your niche, but allow you o create articles about a lot of different types of knives.
good luck
phil
type knives into jaaxy and see if you an come up with a few sub niches that you would be able to create a complete site about
i found - butchers knives, collectible knives, hunting knives,tatical knives, survival knives.wood carving knives
or as you are a starter then use google related or the alphabet soup technique or ubersuggest

Sounds like you are very passionate, knowledgeable and experienced in this area. I would use that and maybe create the only site in the world where people get great advice on what knife to choose depending on what they want to do with it... Are there any competitors on your market?

I jist don't see the reason to do only 1 type of knife. I myself have several different kinds and narrowing it down like that just seems pointless when ppl that collect knives usually have many different varieties. Idk that's just my opinion

Thanks yea just like there are many types of juices, there are many types of knives. If I do have to narrow it down tho I may do either hunting knives or collectibles. I'm also very much into woodworking and building things out of wood but I may do that 1 later cuz it seems like it would be a difficult niche to start with

Start narrowed down - with say military knives for example, then you could can gradually expand out to cover more & more different types as it grows. By starting narrowed down though you’ll likely generate commissions sooner as your audience will be much much more targeted.

Being an expert in the field of agriculture I would like to pick my niche around that. But I would also like to join the WA boot camp coz that's my other interest. I was hoping to start with two websites. So what do I do, since it was mentioned in the video that one can't choose their own niche and the boot camp. .

Hi - there is nothing to stop you from having two websites, but trying to set them both up at the same time will be difficult as a beginner. I suggest you pick one to start with and follow the specific training.

So, if you pick your own niche, start here Or follow the Bootcamp training.

Later on, you can always set up your second site.

Hi Debby,
If you love dogs, start not only writing posts about dogs, but also searching affiliate products related to dogs in order to make money. Always keep this in mind, help your audience first, money comes later. Check this out https://onemorecupof-coffee.com/best-pet-affiliate-programs/ to get ideas or to take one or several of the programs mentioned there. I’m pretty sure that it will be helpful.

All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 3.75 BILLION people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

I am going to make a list of things that I am interested in and have experience in doing. I will then narrow down my selection after researching the internet and make my final selection, to begin with. The others will be kept to explore future possibilities of incorporating into an opportunity. Some of my ideas are DIY gifting projects, products which assist with caring for loved ones, other medical opportunities for which assist with one's illness, etc. All of these are broad spectrums so research will need to be completed before choosing one to begin with. I will dedicate the time to make my choice, Thank you for your insight and I will ask questions for guidance is needed.

That sounds like a good idea, you have a lot of different directions you could potentially head. It just comes down to choosing the one that interests you the most. You can always diversify down the road and be involved in many different niches, but I recommend you focus on ONE first before you focus on many.

Yeah, niches, niches. If one contemplates the broad range of niches it makes one nearly dizzy.
Specially if you have a great variety of interests. I have an product from Clickbank for immediate promotion and furthermore a niche that may be interesting for people around my age.

Help, please. I am more so interested in promoting links to affiliate websites and making money off of those referrals. I'm talking about survey websites, etc. Is it that something possible to do without a website and niche?

I also have my own virtual call center with a company called Arise Virtual Solutions and I struggle to sign people up for that as well.
Reply
TommyPotter Premium
The purpose of the site and the niche is to attract traffic "highly focused" on a product or service and with great possibilities of buying whatever you offer.

Yes, you can promote affiliate links without a website, but it would be a much broader audience with a much lower chance of response (in some cases practically null), and many sites like Facebook do not like that you post affiliate links, but links to your blog from where you can tunnel your potential consumers.

I just watched the video and it gave me some ideas. I have been marketing online for awhile without very much success. I know I can do this. The 2 niches I'm thinking of is Affiliate marketing with Wealthy Affiliates. Also one of my boy's is autistic. He is 10 years old, and nonverbal. I was thinking about Autism as another one. I'm just not sure how to break the austism niche down. Any suggestions.

Just starting out. Thinking about going boot camp route. I do have interests such as cats. Thinking about a problem my mom has currently with the cat going outside of the litter box. I don't know enough to continously write about them.

I have two huge pokemonfans and one not so huge, second idea was gift ideas for pokemon fans. I do play pokemon go, but again I'm not indepth with it such as my husband who constantly watches videos on how to do things in pomemon go and lets go. The vids are always current with what is coming up.

Looking at all the content for just those two ideas, everyone else seems to has it covered. Pokemon gift ideas and cat problems. Even thinking about the bootcamp portion, it seems like everything is saturated by much more knowledgeable people than me.

Or am I missing something? Where should I start?
Reply
merlynmac Premium
You can start out with the Bootcamp if you want but I recommend going through the process before you promote it.

Pick one of your passions and go with it. Saturation isn't everything. Remember, the idea is to set yourself apart and become an authority in your niche.

feigner Premium
there is plenty of room for you in the cat market - especially when you have a problem to solve.
ok, you don't know enough now, but are you willing to learn? do the research and make it easy for others?
essentailly that is what you are doing, making others lives easier.
if you go with the bootcamp you are going into a very competative niche and unless it is a passion then you end up resenting it.
i know i did at the start.
i went back to the oec and created a site about 3d printing.
it might be worth looking at the first site as one you will make mistakes on - so choose something you like and know about but don't be suprised if you need to shift focus partway down the course.
but have a browse in the top search bar for niches and you will find loads of training from members on it.
i hope you manage to select a niche you like.
phil
if you are part of your niche or know people who have gone through your chosen niche then it makes it easier to talk to your niche and know what they are going though - another reason to stay away from bootcamp till you have built a site through the oec.
you can always go back and do the bootcamp in the future.

If you're having problems figuring out a niche the best thing to do is look at your own interests and think about the things you put in your Google search box. We all know something about something. Personally I know a lot about all natural products, where to find them, how to make them, what works and what doesn't and why...However, I don't know much about new technologies or body building or video games , etc. So if I'm looking for a product I am going to go to someone who knows about it...What are you knowledgeable about?

Hi guys. I make a living as a sports trader/matched bettor/gambler working from home. This is the route i wish to go down and already have a couple of affiliate links from the site that got me started in my career. I feel if i could drive traffic to a blog and possibly join other betting exchange affiliate programmes,it may be a good niche? Never written a blog though!!
Reply
feigner Premium
nothing too it - just think what you need to do to learn how you do the matched betting and write it down rather than talking to yourself in your head.
finding your voice and a direction for your site which is narrow enough for people to be interested is one of the hardest parts.
and once you get into the swing of writing a bit daily then it should be no problem.
worth giving it a go.
start with the level one training for the oec and if you stay free for a while then try out the level one in bootcamp.
and have a look around at what the community has created.
hopefully you will be persuaded to join the premium membership, although once you do you cannot go back to a free member on that account.
is it worth it - i would say yes.
even if you don't continue as a blogger you will have learnt a lot of new skills and opened up masses of online job opportunities.
good luck Ray

Got some good ideas out of this video. I've heard of "drilling deep" when doing keyword research. It's not how large an audience you can reach; it's how specific an audience you can target. When you get to keywords that show a monthly search volume of, say 1k to 10k searches, the more likely you will find people who /want to buy that particular product or service.

Hello I understand the idea of choosing a niche based on my interest/ passion. However, I maybe interested in a niche that is already saturated, and maybe difficult for a newbie to gain traction in. Isn't rather important first to do a thorough niche research before picking one? For example, finding out how competitive your niche of interest is? How easy / difficult is it for my website to rank in the top 10 google results page? For one thing, I believe that it is discouraging for any new marketer to build a website and regularly upload quality content without any ROI for more that 2 years because you have a chosen a difficult niche to crack?!
Reply
merlynmac Premium
You have valid points. I'm sure you have multiple passions. Go ahead and do the research but keep this in mind. Picking a niche related to a passion of yours has several advantages from a learning standpoint:

1) As it's a passion of yours, you already know a lot about it. This means less research (aka less tedious work) as you're learning the steps.

2) Again, since it's a passion, you tend to want to work on it vs the "Ug, I have to work now" mentality. You might even find it fun.

3) You already know where to look, what to buy, and so on. You probably already know good resources, people/organizations to reference, etc.

Keep this in mind.... Even saturated markets can be profitable. You just need to set yourself apart from the rest and become an authority in it. Traffic will come. Yes, there may be competition (there always is) but, someone has to come out on top at some point.

I hear you Merlynmac and thank you for the insightful reply. But as a new affiliate/ entrepreneur one of the most important milestone in any business is the validation that the process or business model does work (one can make money) and the sooner that happens the more motivated one becomes to work harder.
Based on your experience, how long does a new website take to rank in Google in a fairly competitive niche?
Once again thank you for the reply.
Reply
merlynmac Premium
I'll use my drone site as an example as there's quite a bit of competition there. It took me about 6 months to rank for some keywords. The trick is to produce quality content consistently. I noticed a big drop when I went on vacation and didn't have any posts scheduled during that time.

Once the trust is established with search engines, activity and engagement really help.

I'd say 6 to 12 months is the sweet spot for starting to rank.

How about that? 😇 I know this would be a great thing to be part of it, but at the same time, trend is one of the competiting aspect to be considered in the world of business. Haha.

Hello, I was thinking of creating an online video course for Fantasy Basketball for Beginners. I was never really into watching sports, but I did enjoy watching the NBA from time to time. My friends randomly wanted to start an NBA Fantasy League one year and invited me to join. I had no idea what I was doing and I ended up 6th that year. The following I year spent about a month researching articles and strategies online on how to draft the best team possible and how to manage your roster throughout the season. I came in 4th. The next year I came in 1st. This year I'm in the top 3 and hoping to win it all again. For my video course I'm planning on putting together maybe a 2 week course on strategies or a guideline to prepare them before the draft as well as ways to manage their roster throughout the season. I'm really wanting to narrow it down for the beginner who just wants to play with a group of friends, not so much competitive play for with pros or for money. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

I think this would be an excellent niche for you. You could write about and/or make videos and podcasts about this topic and there would be tons of people that would be interested in the information.

My niche come from my career. Self-Diagnosis and troubleshooting with iPhones, iPads, smartphones, computers and home networks. This is actually quite simple for many to do but there are so many out there that are intimidated by technology. The longer many are intimidated the bad guys win and continue to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting or unknowing person. People need to know some simple steps they can take to protect themselves. It very well could mean the difference between recognizing a scam on your device when you see it and getting you or a family member out of harms way. I plan on building my niche around this concept of Online Protection and Security in simple terms that many can understand and apply themselves.

I would love to know your thoughts on this concept. What do you think?

While you give all this information out about online safety and protection - of course you can then recommend the products that will help them keep safe.

Hey everyone! So my situation is a little strange but I wanted some opinions. This is my 3rd time back at WA. Each time I have tried going the route of choosing a niche (i have tons of things I am passionate about) but I had a lot of trouble narrowing it down since everything I thought of is SO broad. I spent SO much time on the niche and trying to create a very catchy and nice website I kind of lost my way and gave up. I was thinking about going the route of BOOTCAMP and promoting WA however from the videos and what I see people posting it seems that's not the route that is really suggested. If I take what I am MOST passionate about it would be

mental health, depression, motivational quotes, dating, swimming, spinal health, and wellness.

Now each of those can kind of relates to each other, swimming helps your mental health and depression, its great exercise and great on the spine. It is a great way to lose weight and a lot of people who want to get back into dating want/need to lose weight which helps with their overall wellness etc.

I guess my question is HOW do I decide if I want my niche to be "Network Spinal Analysis" (which is a form of spinal therapy that also heals you inside) swimming benefits, mental health, and depression etc? I was thinking if I choose Network Spinal Analysis that is the least broad and I can touch on each of my other interests in blogs. Like how NSA has been linked to helping depression and mental illness. Then I can talk about how swimming is great for the spine...

I know this is super long but PLEASE I appreciate suggestions feedback and what everyone thinks about me just going the Bootcamp route and maybe later on after that's up and going create my own target niche website. I just don't want to do this a 4th time the same way I continuously failed at lol.

THANKS, EVERYONE!

I think sometimes we put so much pressure on ourselves to come up with the perfect niche that it can lead to inaction. I think the "Network Spinal Analysis" sounds good, so long as you think you can write about 50-60 articles about it. Like you said though, you can write content about related fields or related topics that impact spinal health which should really increase your options.

I'd say though, don't worry about perfection, get something out there and start creating content. IF you find that the content is too narrow or too broad, you're still gaining valuable experience that will help you create a better website the second time around.

Here's to your success!

I like the Network Spinal Analysis as well. I guess my question is once I choose a niche do my articles ONLY have to be on that topic i.e. Network Spinal Analysis? Or can I write articles on other topics like depression, benefits of swimming, mental health, weight loss and etc because each one of those could fall under spinal health and relate back to Network Spinal Analysis.

The second niche I want is Yoni Eggs. That relates back to my passion for natural healing, I could write about what a yoni egg is used for and the spiritual journey as well, different essential oils, natural healing remedies, yoni steaming, and i feel like with that niche i could write articles about Network Spinal Analysis since the Yoni Egg is used for many purposes with the main one being to heal yourself from within and that's exactly what NSA does.

I love swimming and was going to choose swimming exercises or swimming goggles but I couldn't really think of many ways I would write on that.

Which do you like best Yoni Eggs - with my direction to talk about self-healing, depression, healing inside and out and etc. Or Network Spinal Analysis? I only like Yoni Egg because I feel that relates much more to emotional healing, essential oils which I am obsessed with, using sage and palo santo to attract positive vibrations, healing stones, and my experience and SO MUCH MORE. '

I feel like my NICHE is self-healing/natural healing and YONI EGGS and/or Network Spinal Analysis is just one thing in that category I would talk about. I think I am not understanding exactly the purpose of niche.....

I think what you really need to think through is what would your target audience be interested in reading about and what would build trust with your audience. When I looked up more about Network Spinal Analysis, I found this:

"Network Spinal Analysis takes chiropractic care one step further. Instead of dealing with the subluxations on a physical level, they treat them on a mental level as well. Network chiropractic allows the nervous system to better communicate with the body, expelling any negative interference causing the pain."

If this was something that I was learning about, and I came to your site, I might want to know more about how this works, what these practitioners do, how to find a good practitioner, what questions to ask when choosing a practitioner. But I also might want to know about other ways that I can take care of my spine, how can I improve mind-body connection, what other tools allow the nervous system to communicate better with the body, complementary therapies (light and sound therapy), etc.

I think you have a lot of great opportunities there, but no everything does not have to be directly written about Network Spinal Analysis, but should be related to what your target audience might be interested in learning.

I hope that helps!

Yes, that helps a lot. I think I am going to go with Yoni eggs. I think someone coming to my site will want to know where to buy yoni eggs, how to know the site is trusted and stones are real, what benefits come from using a yoni egg besides women thinking it is only to tighten the vagina, the 21 day yoni journey, how to clean and recharge your yoni egg, if its safe to use while pregnant, MY experience with the journey and what it did for me, other ways to take care of your yoni which is the sacred word for vagina.

I know A LOT about this. I believe in that route I can then talk about all the HEALING properties of different essential oils, sage, palo santo (because those are things you use to recharge and cleanse your stone) I can talk about other ways to heal yourself from within and so forth. If you google Yoni Egg do you think I am on the right track?

I even have a domain name I like... I am very into cosmic vibrations etc so since all of my social media and etc are about that I chose cosmiclotuslife.com

Any thoughts? And thank you for your help! I will return the favor if you need anything at all just let me know :)

After watching the children come through the school system, I have at least taken on some of their learning. The 'Mind Map'. Blank piece of paper, 'niche' written in the middle and then just add random word connected in some way, shape or form. Before long you will have a comprehensive list. They might not be the definitive ones but in turn can become the 'centre' words or ideas to spin more off.
Also, sometimes just writing stuff down can free up much needed 'grey matter' space.

You might find it interesting to read book by Betty Edwards “Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain”. Though it is somewhat directed to artist much of it applies to everybody.

Set back relax and stop overthinking. Learn to shift between the two sides of your brain. You are definitely not alone in this issue.

Going to join you network to see where this goes.

Kyle is so sensible.
To progress online everyone needs a "niche", but people can be so obsessed in trying to find the best idea for themselves that they become bogged down in the process, frightened that they might choose the "wrong" niche for themselves and I have been one of them. However time flies and can make you lose sight of your objective, that is to help people and yourself to complete your aim to free yourself and household to supplement your income. Life is too short and if you are struggling to decide on your next step online, follow Kyle's idea to choose one to begin with, you can always try different ideas or, if not, follow the "bootcamp" training.

Best Wishes for your future success.

hey hi Oarliene & welcome to Wealthy Affiliate (WA) starter!

Glad that you're enjoying the WA training and yes, absolutely, you're on the right track in defining and selecting a niche that you'd love to work with!

As you progress along the training, the niche that you select will become more finely tuned and it also needs to be a subject area that you are most interested in (having lots of knowledge with your first niche would make it easier to write about for you) as you'll need to research, blog in-depth and extensively over a fair length of time to achieve success for the longer-term in engaging and keeping an interested audience ....

Encourage you to continue onward with your training to upward success!

Thanks Diane, I feel like I'm more comfortable with hair care for the simple reason I have been doing hair for years. Family members, my two daughters, friends, and my own hair.

That is what I want also. I am starting to collect tools to make it happen, but there are some spots where they will require my intervention. I feel like most of the things can be outsourced if you have money for it, but things like finding affiliate programs, choosing marketing approaches, keyword research, and a few others are better handled by me. BUT if I can get it down to those things, then I can manage it in a few hours a day from my laptop. When you go this way, make one niche completely and then go to another one and do it completely. I estimate 6 months per build out to know what each niche will need in terms of advertising, maintenance, and upkeep. Good luck to you.

The niche is your main topic ... First you select a niche, then you can try to identify, to target the most active target groups interested in that particular niche.

On contrary, the narrower, the better. A narrowed niche means well-targeted interest groups.

I do think a niche should be something you are passionate about, or at least something you have experience with that you can write solid content about, or something you want to learn about and can still create excellent content. I think the niche you choose will be up to your own interests and the goals you have for your website. There are a lot of great tools, blogs and articles here about choosing a niche, but you could also do searches to help you come up with ideas and research to see the viability of these ideas.
I don't know that there is any "wrong" way to decide your niche, as long as it's something that interests you and you are motivated and ready to build it, create engaging content, and gain your potential customer's trust, you are on the right track!

Hi Benard,

Your niche then is whatever those products are which sounds like health supplements. So if you want to build your business here to promote those MLM products, then that's cool you CAN do that and when the training talks about affiliate products, you would just substitute that with your MLM products instead.

You see, what you're trying to build here is a FREE Traffic Generator with your website. WA's training teaches you how to build your website in a way that it attracts its own traffic so you have leads coming to your online business without paying for any ads.

So your niche will be whatever products you want to promote: health supplements.

So you will think about how you will help this particular group of people who would need your type of health supplement.

I hope this helps!

You don't actually have to be an expert to blog about things. You can show your journey or talk about things you learn as you go through life. Just think about all the people that do the weight loss niche. Sometimes, overweight people blogging about losing weight, while they are losing weight. Those people aren't experts or dietitians, but still people follow their journey and return to see what is new with them and what they have learned. People just want value and someone they can relate to. Give them that and then you can talk about different drivers or wedges you try and why you like them or don't. Hope that helps.

Hello!!! As per my understanding niche is anything you like and can write about. I am quite interested in fitness as I follow a regime of either running my static bicycle or some rounds of yoga.

This can absolutely be your niche. I would pick one area of fitness you know the most about and want to write about the most. You can bleed to other topics once you are established, but most all of your posts starting out should be on your niche topic only.

Fitness is a great start, but you should narrow down the idea. Yoga could be a niche, or stationary bikes for weight loss could be a niche.

Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

The video is very informative and gave me a clearer understanding as to what a niche was. One of my long time passions has been to own a Thrift store. I love to thrift shop however due to working a 9-5 job for the last twenty-something years, I never made the dream/desire a reality. I am soon to be retiring and have once again revived this desire. I believe online Thrift and Consignment stores are becoming more popular. I don't know if there are affiliate programs for this type of retail industry so if anyone has some feedback I would greatly appreciate it.
Reply
ItsRyan Premium
I am not aware of any affiliates (but I'm still a little new), but what you might try is to connect with the thrift stores in your area and let them advertise on your site in exchange for a percent of the sale price. This would not be much different than an Amazon affiliation since the commission there is only 2-6% on average. You might even be able to do make more. You could also have them have banner ads or something linking back to their web page if they have one. There are lots of possibilities if you get creative and want it bad enough.

I've been trying to come up with my niche and this is where I'm leaning towards. I have been working on healing some health problems over the last 3-4 years with a holistic approach. I've reversed my thyroid condition, eliminated several other conditions and uncomfortable symptoms that I've been battling over the years. Throughout my experience I have learned a lot about how to heal naturally and I would love to share that with the world. I was wondering if Holistic Healing would be a good niche and I could write separate articles about all the different methods I've used to heal my body holistically as micro niches. For example, juicing, rebounding, detoxing, essential oils, etc. These are all things I have a lot of knowledge and experience with and I would have a great deal of content to write about on my website.

I want to help people that want to heal their bodies holistically.

I'd appreciate any and all advice!

From what I have learned, anything can be a Niche. Just make sure that it is something that people would be interested, first and foremost, and then make sure that it is a subject that you are knowledgeable. And from the sound of it, you do know a thing or two about the subject.
In my opinion, I would say that it would be a great Niche and you will be able to target many people with it.
Make sure that you research it further before you commit to it.
But I think you might a winner.
Wishing you all of the best.

Trying to figure out my niche, I think my main category would be skin care as this is something I research on a daily bases and have done for years, due to having sensitive skin. I have always thought to myself "I wish there was a site I could just go on that would simplify the searching process for me" so im wondering...… if its possible to have a niche for a certain skin type maybe? or would the niche be skin care as a whole. im a newbie so just trying to get my head around it all :)

Hi - skin care as a whole is a very competitive market. The ideal choice would be to use your own experience of having sensitive skin. Then, anything you write would be genuine and from the heart, and readers would know to trust your advice.

J-KWest Premium
That's a great question. The more specific your niche the more success you'll have. There are a few advantages. It's easier to become an authority on your specific topic which not only gives your readers confidence that you understand and can help them, but search engines will see you as an authority on that topic as well making it easier to outrank a site that only treats it as a sub-topic.

The other advantage is that your traffic is highly targeted which is critical to converting it into sales later on. People rarely "impulse" buy online. They may become interested in something, but they'll then go off and look for more information. You want to be the site where people go to get that information and position yourself further along that buying cycle. By the time they reach your site they will have identified their specific problem and you can provide a specific solution. The closer you can match problems with solutions the more successful you will be.

When your audience knows you've gone through something similar and you can provide the "exact" thing they want... that's when they buy.

Dedicating your website to a certain skin type would be far better. You'll know exactly who your audience is and what they want. In turn, they'll know who you are and relate to you far better because you share a common experience.
Reply
caljones6750 Premium
The answer is yes. To both queries. Skin care as a whole would be like a "macro" niche, and a specific skin type would be a "micro" niche. I personally think focusing on a particular type of skin is a good idea. With a potential audience of three billion plus, you can be sure that there are millions of people out there with that "certain skin type." The better you define your target audience, the more cost-effective your marketing strategy will be.
Reply
Joy3 Premium
Seems to me a good niche would be for your type of skin. Skin care as a whole has far too many parameters and it would take longer to get a following. It is easy to choose something that concerns you and as you gain customers, you can add on and diversify. Good luck

If art is at the top of the list of things you are passionate about, that IS your niche! And a great one it is. You have a universal audience, and prices for art-related stuff can range from the sublime to the ridiculous, giving you quite a range of commissions. Just pick something to get started. You can always change later if you want to. Heck, start with brushes! Artists swear by them, can't work without them and they use a lot of them! Hey, you could end up with a website brokering million-dollar paintings!

I might be able to help with my tools. First step is to see if you can find a website that exists that does what you want to do. We can look at their traffic and top keywords and find some areas that could be even more niche focused. Photography is going to be a big area of competition, so a pocket inside of there would be even better.

Now, another idea is to focus on the home photography, make videos and content around best shots, tips and tricks and focus on the equipment that a real estate agent might buy. Your target audience would be smaller, but more focused.

I will be adding a drone in the coming months so will have that content too as I learn that skill. Am I on the right track?

Yes, it's a great start. And it's OK if it morphs or evolves into something else. You'll want a great blog with tips, social shares, and tutorial videos if you can

Most assuredly! Photography is big business and as you well know, the equipment can get very expensive, so the commissions should be pretty nice.

I've had a hard time deciding on a niche when it came to blogging for the past two years. So, as a result, I've resorted to creating a multi-niche blog, which I started less than a month ago. Through writing a few articles, I realize health and science-related topics make more sense to write about since I have a background in Science and healthcare.

I understand how having a single niche could make one appear to be more of an authority in that area, as well as help with google rankings. However, I've seen multi-niche sites out there. Is it possible to make the website I create here a multi-niche site instead of just one? Not too many areas but maybe two or three?

Hi - well, of course, your website is your own and you have free reign to take it in any direction. However, you could be seen as providing mediocre content on a variety of subjects, rather than being seen as an authority on one niche. You need to retain the interest of your visitors, who of course are your potential customers. Say, for example, I visit your site to read advice on sleep problems but discover half of your articles are on the keto diet, I would soon leave.

Thanks, for your input Diane...I get it! I'm going to try to keep it in one area for now at least ;-)

One area is good. You can have a couple of niches in healthcare, or a couple in science, but as Diane alluded to, you might lose 'em if you spread yourself too thin.

Hey folks, I'm really crazy excited about the RV lifestyle and sharing my family's misadventures, the crazy-cool things we find that helps us, and how we adapt and thrive with our disabilities. It's me, my fiancé, and our two dogs. I have a severe anxiety disorder, and my fiancé has ankylosing spondylitis. We want to see and do so many things that we can't even decide where to start, so I'm starting here.

We have discussed starting out just helping people on our travels, jumping from town to campground to park, where ever people want to meet us and show us something they love or a project they want help with. We mostly just want to accept the occasional donation or workamping-type jobs.

What do y'all think? If I build it, will they come?

BC, I love the idea. My niche is in the RV lifestyle as well. This is an up and coming lifestyle where people live the "Nomadic" lifestyle. My girlfriend and I have a future retirement plan of living the lifestyle. It's only a short 6 to 8 years away.

I started my website https://myrvessentials.com to help people learn able RVing. I had an RV prior to my divorce and plan to purchase my next RV in the spring. Our goal is similar to yours by traveling to enjoy each other and our retirement.

If you have any questions or would like to compare note. Please contact me. I would love to hear from you.

In my daily life, I have been trying to reduce my plastic usage and avoid products with BPA and other harmful chemicals in them. I want to choose a niche within this category. I have been looking a lot into food storage solutions that do not contain plastic (things like glass food storage containers and reusable silicone bags). Would this be considered a niche? I'm just not sure how broad or specific it should be...

Yes that is considered a niche and it is not too broad because you have already focused it down to non-BPA and plastics.

Yesterday I was up to my head with makeup. Today, after seeing this and doing a few minutes research, I chose Self Improvement books. Sharing experiences with others and helping people improve their lives is something I'm interested in on a deeper level. Further on, I have a feeling I'd be doing quests on those subjects and possibly reviewing it. Other niche ideas came to mind - natural face scrub products and educational books/videos/games for kids. Time to get started ;)

Sure, either or could be the direction you head. Makeup might be a little broad, there are many much more narrow facets to this niche. What type of makeup? What aspect? For who? etc

My niche is easy to pick as it is a huge passion of mine.. Everything to do with natural health and medicine! (I have almost completed my bachelor degree in natural medicine so my foundational knowledge of health and the profession should set me in good stead to create content.. right??).

My question to the crowd out there now is, what natural, organic, eco-friendly, sustainable etc products do you search for/buy online? Beauty products? hair/skincare? health/nutritional/herbal supplements/medicines? weight loss/diet/meal plans? gym equipment/memberships? eco-friendly and biodegradable household products? chemical free? cruelty-free? vegan? What are you most likely to search for and buy online in this area (if anything)? I'd be ever so grateful for constructive input to help me refine my niche and get some ideas of where to focus first :)

Besides using Jaaxy, there are other ways to do your research.

Another would be to go over to Pinterest and take a look there. There is a huge following for the various topics that you describe. Also don't forget about hashtags, they can also bring up lots of ideas for you.

I am excited but now thinking the domain name is not right so about to delete it and start another one. I would like something that I can eventually purchase for myself and I tend to overthink things and 'sit on my hands' for too long. I actually make my own skincare products but currently, they still have no branding and a small following because I have been reluctant to pick a name and build a site! I am hoping this training will help me build the confidence to take the plunge! I am hoping that affiliate marketing will help so I have a wider range of products to share rather than struggling with my one or 2 products that take lots of time and effort for me to get out there. I also have a lot of friends that run small businesses so am thinking that being an affiliate for WA could work in my favour too? It's confusing but I am keen to get onto it!

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer this for me!

That's great that you finally found your niche. When you get to picking your domain name, try and make the domain name something brandable and broad like ClassicCarGuy.com, then have your niche be something like 1966 Ford Mustangs. Then write about them a lot on your blog, but leave room to expand to other cars also, if you want. If you make your domain something like 66Stangs.com then that is pretty much all you should focus on. Hope that helps.

Being permanently disabled myself, I am sorry for your predicament. I like the idea of your niche and if you take the time to look at google trends, put the various terms side by side for comparison and see what you feel is the best buck for the money (content wise). You could also create numerous pages with the focus on only certain items listed under that heading, and then repeat for other types in the same manner. That way you would be able to still focus on the primary niche and be able to present all aspects to your readers.

Hi Anne,
No. You don't need to buy anything. However, if you have bought something and you want to recommend it, then that's even better as you can give your own personal experience (like a lipstick).

For the "pregnant mom wears" example, you can recommend clothes without buying them.

Choose just one niche for your website.

Hope this helps.

Great video. I'm passionate about traveling fulltime with family and homeschooling...but homeschoolers notoriously are thrifty people, so I think I would skip that niche competely!

Hmmm?

I have other ideas more related to health but wondering how big they are. Wondering how I might narrow it down to pertain again to travellers. Like dealing with anxiety, or doing keto while traveling. Open to suggestions/pointers!!

Great question! For me, it came down to what do I think I can write about for a long time without running out of material. Some things can only be explained a few times and then it's just repetitive. Also, I considered what related topics I might be able to cover. Example: a site about basketball shoes might also be able to talk about socks, shoe inserts, custom laces, etc. Then you also want to think about what kinds of products you aim to promote. You can find a product for every niche, but will it be one that you can make enough money on for your effort. Example: Amazon book sales of at ~6% means you need to sell nearly $17,000 of books per month just to make $1000. Seems like a lot to me when the average book price is less than $50. Just my input.

Health drinks as a niche has over 4 billion hits in Google and thus would be way too broad and lots of competition. Try to narrow it down to health drinks for kids or teenagers or something similar.

Since I've heard about affiliate marketing, almost two years ago, I've thought a lot about a niche. My first thought was to pick something that I'm good at, something that I can share a wealth of knowledge based on my experience. Then I realized, that while I do enjoy my professional "tasks," it's the thing that I want to escape. So, I am selecting the Vegan niche. My family and I have been eating a plant-based diet for a little over 2 years now and it's something that I am really passionate about and enjoy. I want to help people who are new to plant-based eating explore the wonderful world and variety of recipes. A lot of people think that plant-based eating is boring and it is quite the opposite.
Reply
ItsRyan Premium
The vegan niche is certainly a good one to get into. There are TONS of things to recommend to people for you to affiliate later, but the fact that you personally have experience to share, you should be able to gain people's trust and really help them. That should be your goal starting out. If there is a way to narrow your niche further, you could do that so it is not quite so broad, but you can do well even if you don't.

Hello! Yes, there is so much information out there. I have so many ideas about how to help people. People in my community have been asking me for recipes and to host classes. I want to take people on a journey beginning with helping them understand what it is. It seems everyone is talking about it right now and it can be trendy, but there are so many health and environmental benefits. I plant to create a meal plan helping people replace a one current meal with a plant-based meal per day. Trying to go cold turkey is overwhelming and will lead to failure. I think the more I write out a plan and talk to people, I will be able to narrow down my niche.

So I have a niche picked out- Vinyl Records and turntables etc- I have gotten to the content writing part

I am a musician for many many years- and grew up in the 70's. I am certainly no expert on the subject although I bought and used records for years

My thinking on first article is about the resurgence of vinyl record sales- as i say Im no expert and my aptitude is in music- math- not writing. I feel a bit overwhelmed about researching and coming up with a 5 point article without copying what is already written on other sites


Any suggestions
Thx

Well this is a good niche. I think your approach to writing could be to speak from personal experience and where you know something, add value or give people insight into a reason for choosing one option over another. For example, I remember the sound of my first pioneer turntable as Queen came on. Those same Pioneer turntables are still the leading brand. Amazingly, they still retail quite high on Amazon (insert link to many) or any other site you choose. Anyhow, pick a voice and go with it. For me its personal experience and thoughts that I find it easiest to talk about and people can relate with that and thus trust what I say and recommend. Try it.

I have 1000 niche ideas OMG I'm stuck between WhatSexygirlslike.com (beauty supply, cloths, shoes, makeup) switchwigsdaily.com (wigs, lacefronts, care products, wig reviews) Highqualitygenarics.com (site with generic versions of everyday namebrand items) IndependentArtistBestie.com (what you should spend money on to make money from your music)
PinkPlease.com (find a lot of hard to find in pink items) I guess my question is how broad can we be?

You can be as broad as you want really. However it is also better if you can be narrower not broader. Kyle will get more into that and the reasons as you go through the training's.

Don't go broad you have many that you mentioned that can be specific on its own like makeup can cover the type of skin certain makeup is for, caring for the skin when using makeup, natural makeup organic make up and so on
Bring down your niche to what resonates with you the most and what knowledge you have the most
Wishing you well

You should really pick one niche and focus on that. To many at one time isn't easy... Now that those names have been put out there; you'll find they're unavailable or SUPER expensive.

thanks! pinkplease.com is that narrow enough?

What I learned from Kyle and the person I signed up under is narrowing your niche is better because we can not write about everything and we will be successful with only one of our websites. I hope that helps.

pinkplease dot com is a domain name; not a niche. AND will cost you around $30,000...

Hey, Shalanda, is also to have so many options right? But, sometimes overwhelmed. Think what your heart tells you to do?

Another question, I want to promote WA as well, I have desire to promote pet foods/treats, vintage clothing, beachwear, and a new product up and coming called Halo Fi, with all these swirling around Will the training I am currently in provide all I need or do I need to switch up to the bootcamp?

If you want to promote WA then you should go to the Affiliate Bootcamp as your best resource. If you want to choose one of the niches you mentioned, then the Online Entrepreneur Certification is where you want to be. Now, I can see that you are like me when I first started, you have a million ideas and not sure which one to follow. That is great! That means you are excited about what you are doing and want to get started. You will find, as I did, that you "just need to pick one" and stick with it through the training. Just learn all the skills for one focused niche idea and then once you have learned the ins and outs, you can repeat later for something different. Whatever you pick to focus on, make sure it is something you can see yourself writing about and researching about for the next year at least and in a subject you are passionate about. Best wishes for you future success.

Thank you so much...I appreciate your input. I'm trying now to figure out how to set my site up for interactive tabs for visiting traffic. I want people to be able to share stories and pics. I was given permission to add someone's story to my page as well. Any assistance you can give is appreciated...

I think what you might be looking for is a Wordpress plugin called BuddyPress that allows you to make your site "social". In your Wordpress dashboard click on plugins (on the left), then choose "Add New" and you will be shown the WP Plugins page. There, on the featured page, you should see Buddy Press or you can search for it. It seems like it will do what you are requesting. If it's not, let me know more details and maybe I have another suggestion.

Ok, so I finished the training video on choosing my niche'. I have one question, If I have a t-shirt design I want to promote on a web site, Can I set up just for the t-shirt designs I create and have them made and purchased by the customer through an affiliate site?

Affiliate marketing can't be done like that. From my understanding you are promoting products or services that you don't own. There are many sites like Etsy that my allow you to set up with them, and then you get paid if someone buys through your affiliate link. Hopefully that was helpful to you not confusing.

Sincerely,
Chris

If you are going to have it made then you wouldn't need affiliate marketing Shelley. You would just sell the product yourself and take all profits. With affiliate marketing, you would be taking other people's products and then making a commission from the sale. Make sense?

I like how honest WA appears. Niche is substance of our passion and money is a by product of our journey.

I don't have many passions but I am passionate about trying to find something which is popular that others will be interested in. As long as I create an interest, the money will follow.

RoseAnn1234 Premium
Remember that you will need to research information and write about it constantly. If you don't have an interest in the subject you may get bored easily and it is likely to show in your writing. At least pick a niche that you are interested in even if you are not passionate about it.

Great tips on how to find a niche. What about research though? Should I research if there are any programmes/competitors/keywords at all or can I succeed just by using the "build it and they will come" approach?

I plan to make a small site following my own interests, perhaps something super niche like the snack helmet example to gain experience before moving on to a bigger project. Obviously I don't want to waste my time and would like to at least make a few sales within a few months so that it gives me the motivation to carry on when it gets tough (as I'm sure it will at some stage).

Here is an excerpt from my latest blog -

Niche marketing is not a magic bullet. It isn't a matter of putting up a website and then sitting back and waiting for the money to roll in - "build it and they will come" may have worked for Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams, but it doesn't work that way on the Internet. If you do that you'll be waiting a long time.

Hi Chris - the more research the better. This is all covered in the training, but what you can do is search Google using the phrase Affiliate Programs + Niche (using your own niche of course). This will give you an idea of what it is out there for your idea. Take a look at competitors and think what you can offer that will make your site unique and lure away the traffic. Realistically you are unlikely to make any money within the first three months and should count on six months. All the best, Diane

I suspected that choosing a niche right at the beginning and diving head first into building a website could be a massive waste of time so thank you for confirming.

I found a load of programs in the last hour so thanks for that. I work as an accountant so know full well that most businesses don't make money for a long while so don't expect this to be any different! Do you think it is better to go super niche and potentially limit the size of the business or to really work on a broader site that can give me more topics to write about?
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Super niche can work but bear in mind that you will have to write dozens of articles on your chosen subject, plus reviews. Is it something you can talk endlessly about, giving your readers something new to learn all the time? On the other hand, super niche means less competition of course!

Here's a couple of examples from one extreme to another from sites I have seen on here today - laptops, easy to write about but way too much competition, but then stethoscopes - a limited market but if that's what people are searching specifically for, then you have a higher chance of being found. Lots to think about isn't there?

Cool vid. Comprehensive and straight forward. I'm wondering but whether to choose the entrepreneur route or the affiliate bootcamp. I was thinking to try to do both, that's b4 ya said ya wouldn't recommend this, but 2 choose or th other instead. Why is this please? And if we gotta choose 1 or th other,, which'll see a return on investment quicker and which is more profitable pls??

Most of us, if not all, will do the affiliate marketing training first in order to gain experience. Do that for 3-6 months and you will be ready to start Bootcamp as well. Bear also in mind that starting a website for your own can be very time consuming especially when you want to do things right. Starting two websites simultaneously might be too much in the beginning.

I had similar thoughts, in fact, I started to do both at the same time and it quickly got out of hand trying to do both. You have to remember that you will do all research in duplicate, all posting in duplicate, all page changes and other researches in duplicate and if they are on totally different topics (affiliate marketing and anything else) then you quickly run out of time. For instance, let's say you opted to do the suggested 1,000 word posts X 2 X 3 posts per week....that's 6,000 researched, keyword targeted, rich and engaging posts. It's a lot. I had to submit to just trying to master one route and then once I have learned these skills then I can try the other when I know what I'm doing.

Sure, that makes sense, to just focus on 1 task at a time. I believe I've already got an ace up my sleeve,,,,,(maybe/hopefully), pending answers I get to other queries,,, that I have a website already which I'm looking to edit, update and incorporate into the mix to get me started, if I can do that. Hopefully we can stay in touch and brainstorm or bounce some ideas back'n forth from time to time.

Hey y'all! I decided to look at my 2019 goals and decide on a niche from there. My main goal is organizing/decluttering my home this year so it is much more functional and easier to keep tidy and clean. Would you think this is narrowed down enough?

I also have goals geared towards budgeting simply and maximizing family time and teaching my kiddos about money...
So many options!

After doing some research about paying websites and apps & finding out that some are legit & that people can really earn money online, I've been thinking of creating some blogs and later on a website about the topic. Can this be considered a niche? Should I go on with the Online Entrepreneur Course or should I be better off promoting Wealthy Affiliate & take the Bootcamp instead? Which do you recommend? I would truly appreciate your inputs guys...

Anything can be a niche. If you have some background knowledge you can always share it here at WA and earn credits for more websites.
The keys to success online are pretty much endless. The Online Entrepreneur Course is not that long with some very useful training as one of your keys.
My biggest suggestion for people is to be patient. If you promote WA now, that's great. The question is, do the people buying through you trust you? Build the trust of people and the rest will follow.

Hello Everybody,
The niche I am thinking of is in the area of music instruments , amplifiers and associated products, particularly bass guitars. I have been a passionate musician all of my life, but as bassist I feel that not enough attention gets directed towards my friends in the low end deserving of the quantum leaps made through the artists and manufacturers that continually push the boundaries and possibilities of our sonic realm. Drawing from my years of expierience and knowledge I feel this niche will be particularly gratifying and beneficial to the bass community and affiliated businesses at large

If your niche is going to be focused solely on the needs of bass players then that is a good niche to get into. Just be careful not to promote too many general music products that are not really specific to the bass community.

One thing I am doing for myself is simply picking something I know at least a little about and making a website around that. My idea is that I can always make another niche website later, but the important thing for me is just to start a website, get it running, and get a few visitors. After I clear that hurdle, then I can do some serious & profitable niche picks and replicate the process. No analysis paralysis! Don't get stuck, just go and claim a short term win of creating a website and getting a bit of traffic. I hope it helps some people! It certainly took out the pressure of picking a niche and allows me to move forward easily.

one thing for sure..this keyword and niche thing is just a little bit more difficult than anticipated. Once you start playing with jaxxy for keywords and domain names, it gets overwhelming at times just with all the information you find. However, I am learning a lot and hope to settle on something soon so i can continue the training.

At this point I think I need a piece of advice. I intend to grow my present business bringing on my own site ( which until now has presented devices, kits and installations I have been mounting for over a decade now), products and kits of the same type that is surveillance, access, automation, intercoms, routers, fiber optic, KNX products, smart home products/kits etc, but this time to sell them. What should I choose, OEC or Affiliate Bootcamp ?
Tks!

Sure, that can most definitely be the direction that you head here. I would recommend that you head in the direction of "bass guitars". You can definitely have room that way to diversify and discuss many areas of bass guitars, but music itself.

Add your passion to this space, and I think this would be a winning niche for you.

Hi everyone,
The niche I am thinking of is in the area of remote control cars and trucks.
Now I do understand this is very broad, and I am going to break down into different categories.
There are types, and what I plan on doing is breaking every category into sub categories.
Or should I make two different websites to separate the different types of remote control cars and trucks?

You can go either way. I chose to be a bit more specific with my drone site and focus on the DJI Mavic series. It has worked well for me.

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. :)
