How to choose the perfect niche
Now let's see the second component ...
One of the biggest misconceptions regarding niche marketing is that there is considerably less money in it than with the mainstream markets. Honestly? It’s just another inexplicable, stupid and hard-to-kill myth. In my opinion: when there is less competition it is far easier to penetrate markets and efficiently target your customer base! So, hear me out! Here’s an essential tip that will help you to crack the “how to affiliate marketing” mystery: the smaller the niche the better. And believe me, there is virtually no limit to how narrow you can go!
Your goal is to find a highly narrowed (sub)niche with enough people searching each month to make you a nice income stream (preferably at least 1,000 searches per month). With these smartly narrowed niches you will have less competition in both numbers of competitors and size of competition. As a result you’ll find the competition easier to deal with and that in itself is huge advantage in affiliate marketing. Additionally, less competition means that you have better chances to successfully sell even more expensive products.
So don't forget: very narrow areas of expertise can be very productive. Develop your own profile. Develop your own niche.
The easiest way to dodge the competition in affiliate marketing is to get more specific! All you have to do is to dig a little deeper. Believe me, a well-narrowed sub-niche can still have a lot of interest and more importantly, can be incredibly profitable. And there is one more important benefit: when you are focusing on a smartly-narrowed niche all your efforts are concentrated and you can easily become an appreciated, established “expert” in your niche.
