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.

Hi,
I can perfectly understand the niche concept for the services (like affiliate program for example or alike). And I think, that it is the best way to start, to see how and why and what. I will go that direction for sure.
But when we come to products - everybody today knows about either Amazon or Aliexpress or alike. If someone needs a product, why on Earth he/she/them would go to some website (even if it is MY website) instead of going directly to Amazon website?

Almost everyone does a little research before the go buy an item for the first time. That's where your site and authority come in. I actually has a local guy ring my drone site and came to my house asking me for advice and even training. All because I had built trust with him via my site.

So it means, that in order to achieve some results, your niche should not be just "product", but something more complex (like further training or advise), right? otherwise people goes straight to Amazon?

Right...if all you do is churn out reviews, you'll miss a whole bunch of potential visitors. My drone site has a lot of reviews but it also has a lot of informational articles, how-to's and troubleshooting tips. Much of my traffic comes to those non-review posts first and then the visitors see my reviews and recommendations secondary.

Thanks. That is how I also see it. It is just a little bit more complicated then selecting any one product from million others...

Personally I don't think I've ever gone to Amazon directly, because I always assume there is something better than the product I am thinking about buying, so I look for reviews first. I go through niche sites (just like what you'll be building here) and then generally make purchase decisions based on what they tell me may be the best option.

On the other hand there are often times when I simply don't know what product to buy & I need help - so I will search something like "what tool does X job"... And then I will come across an informative article of how to complete the task which generally recommends the tool I need for the job... And I'll buy it based on their recommendation :)

Because regularly enquiry searches point to blogs and product reviews rather than to Amazon directly.

What if I’ve got a fb page that advertises goods from a company I joined?? They say it’s my business could I get sell the products on amazon?? They do have really nice things if it’s only fb pages I can sell them on, I’d like to move on to something that is more guaranteed for a residual income , what are your thoughts please xx

Think of this as an opportunity where you can explore any interest you may have. What would you want people to see you succeed with? What is something you know you would love to teach to others? What do you picture yourself having accomplished when you think ahead in 20 years time? You have the chance to find out what you are all about and what will make you feel fulfilled.

The book of faces is a good vehicle for driving traffic, but I don't know if you can do as much on Facebook as you can on your own website. I'm not a fan of Facebook, because I like security, but I think you should continue with the training here so you can see the difference between Affiliate Marketing and Facebook. Neither are going to provide you a quick fix for residual income issues...

When you're looking to make sales, the key is driving traffic to your product. With a facebook page, how do you get people to find it? How do people know it exists? Paid ads? What kind of return do you get on paid ads on FB? On Amazon, how would you get people to find your product? How will people know it's there?

Driving targeted traffic is the key to any business. That's why the training at WA is so powerful. You're taught here exactly how to drive traffic to your content. This means you publish your posts once and as you're continuing to build other posts Google is sending traffic to them over and over and over again. That's the best kind of residual income I know how to make :)

So, you want to be a travel blogger going from place to place mapping out the best things about each area you visit? If I remember correctly eric cantu does that very thing.

My idea is to build a website for online shoppers and for online sellers where they experience a more convenient way and hassle free and safe online environment that is applicable especially to most people in the city where I live. I really love shopping and shopping baby products so I think this is a very good way to bring out the best I can to organize and come up with an idea relating to this. Anyone who could give me some advice or other ideas on how I can make this happen in an effective way?

That's exactly what you'll be learning to do here at WA - just continue going through the training & everything will soon fall into place :)

so im thinking of creating multiple niche's over time and essentially taking these niche's and creating a sustainable directory for each niche. for example say i take baby travel products such as car seats or travel packs and collate all the sustainable alternatives with purchase links. does this make sense? the intention is to do this concept with several niche's. any advice?

The only advice I have is don't spread yourself too thin. You want to become an authority in each niche. To do that, you need to dedicate considerable time and effort into each one. I suggest you start with just one and work it to the point where it doesn't need so much attention and then consider starting another one. Just keep in mind, as you devote time to your new niche, time is pulled from your old one.

thanks i'll take that into concideration :)

So I was thinking about some niche ideas...
Ideally I would like to make the kind of website like the snack helmets one in the tutorial.
The reason is not so much laziness but the fact that I never imagined myself as much of a writer, and I don't really know if I'm good at producing a lot of content but I would give it a shot.
Browsing Amazon I found a few niche ideas and then it hit me, the more expensive the product the higher the comission, so I would really like to try drones, do you think it could work?

The few subjects I know about and would gladly produce content for are video games, movies like Star Wars which I love and has a lot of cool memorabilia and children's toys, or tv shows like Game of Thrones (can't wait to see the premiere today).
These are subjects I actually know about and would love to write about, but I am willing to learn about pretty much anything.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated!

I humbly suggest finding a niche that you are passionate about. Then research the heck out of it so that you can give good advice on that product. I write my content as if I was talking to someone next to me. I am sure you are good at making conversation. Just write like that. If you need help, dictate your article into your phone voice recorder and then just copy it into print. Hope this helps.
