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 said in my last comment I was thinking of 3 types of niche, small business help, twins and autism. After reading some of the comments from you wonderful people and seeing that I will need to be adding content etc on my site I think I may go for the Twins option. Personally I have spent a lot of time lately researching this subject and looking for twin products so maybe I can use that to help others. As I said just becoming a grandparent to twins also makes me passionate about it. Niche sorted yay!!!!!

Hi - that's a great choice, and having personal experience will give you trust with your readers.

Great choice! I have no idea what I would have done if any of my children had been a twin lol. My oldest daughter is going to make me a 1st time grandmother come October 2019; I'm excited as I'm sure every grandparent is ;) My youngest son is on the Autism spectrum and I have been running my own small business (offline) for about the last decade so we seem to have a lot of interests in common :)

That is great news on your coming grandchild. It does sound like we have so much in common lol. Look forward to seeing how our journeys go.

I have a couple of ideas for my niche and am not really sure which route to take. Firstly working as a Virtual Assistant I enjoy helping small businesses find ways to run more efficiently etc and help them find solutions to problems so I could take this route. The other two ideas I have are Twins - I have just become a grandmother to twins and am finding searching for twin related products etc interesting and lastly Autism. I have a stepson who is Autistic and love looking up ideas to help him. The choice is so great. Can I start with one and progress to others? Should I start with something business related to help my current business or go for something outside that? So many decisions to make.

They both sound like they are a passion for you, so I think you will be good doing either one.

All of these are pretty valid and you have experience with them. That puts you ahead right away. At first choose the one you know really well and are passionate about. As you are learning, you then just need to learn the mechanics of website building. You already have enough, at your finger tips, to start writing your articles.

Once you are comfortable with your first website then think about which of the remaining two you want to do next.

Just remember this takes work, so set you pace to match. You don't want to get frustrated trying to do too much at once.

Hi Debbie, interesting ideas, all of which sound good. You’ll be best picking something you have knowledge of and an affinity for. If you really love your job and aren’t looking for a change then that could be good for you, as long as you think you can monetize it.

Twins related products is another smashing idea, there’ll be lots of opportunities there I guess for product reviews. Autism comes under the health niche which is always quite a good one too. It has lots of sub-niches to specialise in, but competition for keywords might be high.

Kyle will tell you to pick ONE of those options and build on that. Don’t be tempted to open 3 sites, you should open ONE and focus on that 100%.

Hope this helps,

Dave

Thanks Dave. Had thought Twins would be best option to monetize as well as my work related one probably wouldn't provide that. Thanks for input I hadn't thought that way until you said.

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.

That is exactly what I was just thinking about!

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.

If you are right, at the moment I am writing my articles, I'm sure it's a lot to be super super, but it does not matter, I have to learn from my mistakes, so for now my blog is in the online world, and I'm super happy .. with that I stay ..
