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.

Kyle says in the video to choose either your own niche OR to promote WA but he does not recommend doing both. Is there a reason for this? It seems to me that it may be easier just starting out to promote WA to create some traffic coming in and perhaps even have your membership here pay for itself this way before branching out and building other areas of interest as time goes on. Has anyone else done this?

Hi - the training is quite in-depth and it could be overwhelming to do both courses, requiring two different websites. You should start with one, and of course it is your choice which one. Bear in mind, you will be writing a lot of content for your website. In some ways it is easier to start with your own niche, as you will know more about it.

You should really focus on one niche at as time; for times sake. Promoting WA would be a full time gig, just like promoting your own "product" would be a full time thing. You CAN do both, but starting out, it's better to focus 100% on one niche.

So the niche I would like to start with is travelling! I love travelling and I want to build something for that but I know that travelling is so broad of category. Refining it could be difficult because Id want several things to be able to link through my site. Also with choosing my niche and maybe deciding later to also do the bootcamp to help promote WA can I do that as well?

You can do whatever you feel is best for you and who cares if traveling is broad if that’s what you like do it

Hi - you really do need to narrow down your niche. Is there a particular aspect of travel you have experience of? Travel with children, travel by rail, travel in Europe etc.

You can do the BootCamp training whenever you want, but it is best to focus on your niche site first. You could get overwhelmed trying to do both at the same time.

Hi :)

Here is something you could do: Find a narrower sub niche of traveling like some have suggested.

BUT...when it comes time to get your own domain name, make the domain name a little broader.
Then you can continue in the narrow niche until you are getting lots of traffic and slowly broaden your niche (still in the travel niche) over time as you want.

Then you won't feel so limited forever.

Then it is about talking on the blog about something I know and what I can tell the world, then I research a little more and find an article for sale and that's why I make my blog? for example...
I can talk about carbohydrates as they affect especially in the age of menopause besides that it favors the retention of liquid and body fat apart from the lack of energy etc, in addition to find a slimming program ... is it correct? or promote gyms or activities ....

Yes, you'll write about things you know that will help a certain group of people. Then when you've built up an audience, you'll recommend products that will help them.

A niche is a group of people with a common interest, who hang out in the same places, and buy the same stuff. Start with something that you already know a lot about or are really interested in learning.

You have a good grasp on the idea however, you may want to write your own articles/posts instead of purchasing someone else's. What they write may not line up with what you have in mind. Best to continue with the lessons and let your natural writing style be your guide. It will develop and so will the flavor of your site.

Hello everyone.I'm excited to be here.I was going threw the next lesson where they talk about buying your own domain.
Well I've had the name of my business for a long time now.well in my head at least.
I wanted some advice n which .com name I should go with.
One version of it would look like this ogcreations.com...
The other would look like this theotherguyscreations.com...
What do y'all think?
Also,would i be able to use both names in different variations in which ever one I choose?
Let me know what would be better choice?

You are welcome. I had another member who did more than 10 years business consultation help me out with my newest website and we picked TWIBED which is modern, easy to remember and each letter stands for things specific to my business. So using acronyms do make it easy and also easily indexed. Whatever you do, do not use hyphens or full stops, because that makes it difficult for people to find your site.

my niche is fashion, bags and shoes. I love shopping online, and I have a big passion on knowing what design clothes goes well with our culture, especially clothes that is formal, chic and unique style. prices on my arrange is affordable for everyone.

I like to help schoolies when they need to choose their dress for formal night, age range from 15 to 25. no one wants to pay few hundreds to thousands of dollars for a formal dress which maybe only wear it once or twice. so my price for them will be range from $70 to $250

shoes range is sandal heels and high heels, boots - all real leathers price range from $69 to $170

bags - looking for branded bags

I am still trying to decide what my niche will be, but I have always loved fashion and am pretty good at spotting trends myself. I look forward to seeing if we can help each other, if I do choose this niche. :)
