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 have two general ideas for my niches.

1. Self-Care for college students: As a student myself, I see the damaging behaviors that college students do all the time and would love to help find ways to help in that area.

2. Long-Distance Relationships: I have been in an extremely life-giving and successful LDR for the past 3 years or so, and I would love to share with others what I've learned. However, I am less sure on how monetizing this niche for affiliate marketing would work.

Any thoughts?

Hi all I can think of off the top of my head is setting up a coaching program. I am not sure college students are a money market, so would not know how to help. Maybe put this to Kyle and see if he can come up with any ideas for you.

Ryan I like both of these niches. I was once in a LDR. This population most definitely involves travel by car or by air. I could imagine something tied into making all the traveling easier. travel. Also, I remember searching the internet for gift ideas for each holiday that we couldn't be together....even 4th of July, Valentine or Veteran's Day. To make sure he was always thinking about me😇.

My first niche is really easy for me because I have already dabbled in it, when I say dabble, it's dipping one toe in the water. The niche is gadgets and accessories for the guitarist. I have already experimented with a couple of YouTube videos (for way too cheap products) demonstrating products like an awesome guitar slide and a gadget called a Spider Capo. So really looking forward to going from dipping that toe in the water to doing a belly flop:)

I think this is a great niche! I know quite a few musicians and the one thing I can say about them is they are very passionate about what they do and very interested in the equipment and gadgets that go along with it. Good Luck!

Thanks Shannon, I think this is something I should have done long ago but sometimes its in the timing. I think I am a typical guitarists. I have 11 guitars and gadgets for Africa. I've learned a lot over the years and I think if I have fun doing it, others will have fun following it:)

Hi! These are the things that I like talking about.
1. Personal Finance
2. Healthy/plant based food or ingredients
3. Dog care
4. Kitchen Equipment, I love to cook
5. Leather Handbags

I can't decide which one to use as niche. My concern too is that there might be a few online stores in my area that offer affiliate programs.

I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!

All of those topics are excellent niches. Remember: whatever one you choose, you will need to create content consistently. As for competition: there is always going to be competition. There are also 3.75 BILLION people online. Don't be overly concerned about competition. Everyone is looking for something online :)

There was a comment somewhere about focus on what you know. If it's something you are excited about, that will show in your blogs and your marketing material. That doesn't mean you can't be excited about more than one niche, but start with one imho.

Thanks Kyle for this very useful video. My 3 niches I have selected are in the following domains.

1. Aromatherapy and essential oils with more than 10 years of experience. The website would mainly be an information site where I provide full description of the identity of more than 50 oils.
The idea would also be to sell the (BIO) oils.
In addition I created what I call the "Bible of Healing with Essential Oils". In cooperation with a therapist, I can provide cures using oils for the more than 100 diseases.

2. Blockchain, where I already made a manual called "Introduction in the Blockchain Technology and Cryptocurrency". I tested the training with a volunteer who knew nothing about this tech, and it was successful. Next month I will provide training with a 10 people audience in my company.

3. Lithotherapy: Here also, as a start the website would mainly be an information site with description of precious minerals, stones and crystals and their healing effects. Afterwards I would sell these stones and crystals, as well as jewelry, pendants,...

4. And maybe register at some Affiliate Programs (Amazon, BestBuy, Walmart, Clickbank,..

Best regards
Vincent

The only way your website will become profitable is with affiliate programs/links. It is a good idea if you find affiliate programs that are in your niche. The way to do that is to use the + sign in your search. For example: affiliate programs + aromatherapy OR affiliate programs + blockchain, etc.

Hi, you will want to be careful of the word "cure" and be sure to include a medical disclaimer page on your site saying something like - for informational purposes only, not to replace the advice of a professional physician etc.

It sounds like you know exactly where you want to go with your websites. That's great!
All the best,
Shannon

Hello Signora Shannon, nice to meet you. Thanks for your kind message. You are absolutely right, as we need to be very careful and protect yourself in the health domain.

Normally I work two jobs in order to make ends meet and it was very draining and exhausting. A few years ago I would leave my cleaning job and drive down the street where I worked 3rd shift in a warehouse. So, the "Make Money" niche is where I want to start--Every since I lost my job earlier this year, I am always looking out for new interesting ways to make money.

Yesterday I setup my seller account on Fiverr (maria.mhoon) and right now I am brainstorming to come up with a catchy name for my website/blog. Here is what I have come up with so far ChannelCreationUniverse / LaunchParty / TheSuccessChannel......what do you guys think? Which one catches your attention the most?

I like The Success Channel - I think of all kinds of possibilities for blog content and products. Good luck, I know you are on your way. It will take some time as in any business, but you will reap the $$$ in due time and then you can quit all those other JOBS. Be your own boss and be happy! Linda

Hi - if these are names you are thinking of purchasing as a .com domain at some point, the second two are already taken.
