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.

I would be really keen to focus on yoga as my niche. There may be lots of competition but willing to give it a real go as lots of people love yoga, myself included!

How narrow do I need to make it to get started - is yoga equipment still too broad? Or should I focus on one type - eg yoga mats?

Thanks for any advice,
Lorraine

Yoga equipment can include things like mats, mats you can roll up and have a carrying strap, mats that come in many colors, etc. You don't have to just focus on mats, though.
Although there is not a lot of equipment for yoga, you can talk about comfortable clothing to wear - which material stretches with your body, headbands, leggings, some people might use ankle or wrist weights for the added strengthening.
OR - you could talk about the different types of yoga, the chakras, etc.

Ques 1 / This course is it the certification course mentioned or do I need to make another purchase?
Ques 2/ What are some high ticket affiliation products that we can promote?
Ques 3/ The course mention the building of 2 websites..does this mean as starter I choose 2 niches?
Ques 4/ Will I be taught to create several websites or subpages with just one domain name for several niches?

Am much clearer about the idea of a niche...thanks....it is the product that interest me and for me to promote..I want to encourage entrepreneurs into the digital market, so affiliate marketing will be my prime product. Right?

I will try to answer all your questions so that you have a better understanding of WA.

Q1 - I see that you are only a starter member. If you choose to upgrade to Premium, you would pay $19 the first month and $49 each month thereafter. There are many benefits to upgrading. You can see them here: Q2 - You would need to do a Google search. Just search affiliate programs and tons will come up. Electronics are very popular and could be high ticket as well as digital products that require a monthly subscription; you would get paid each month.

Q3 - As a starter the purpose of the two websites is one for each course - OEC and Bootcamp.
It is not recommended to have more than one niche to begin with because you may become overwhelmed. It is also recommended to start OEC before Bootcamp.

Q4 - I'm not sure I understand your last question. You are taught to create a website in OEC and you are taught how to promote WA in Bootcamp. You choose your domain and branding. You have the ability to create/purchase as many or few websites as you want.

I hope my answers help you. I have to step out for a few hours. If someone else answers you, great.

If you still want MY help, PM me.

Hi, I'm passionate about cats and have already built a wordpress blog as well as ecommerce store. My store is based around cat t-shirts and printables. Most of which I design myself. However, I'm also promoting Amazon cat trees, cat beds, cat toys etc.

Hopefully cats isn't too broad a niche, but having researched the pet niche, both cats and dogs seem lucrative.

Pets are very lucrative, right behind fashion and electronics :)

Follow the training...it is all explained in detail. It is a good idea to visit the Live Events section and search adding pictures. There are step-by-step instructions on how to do this.
When you created your website with wordpress or siterubix, there is an option for add images.
Follow the training...that will help you!

You can definitely head in the fashion direction. 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. :)
