OK. Let's see the next important questions ...

Are there enough really good keywords?

As I told you earlier, your goal is to find a well-narrowed niche with at least 1,000 searches per month. Evidently, you’ll want to target a few main keywords that can help you to get the desired amount of monthly searches, but you can’t build an affiliate website using only one or two main keywords. You are going to need at least 25-30 other supporting keywords too.

Do you like this niche?

I admit, is not a literally vital issue … However, having some sort of interest will make it easier for you to create better content and to really understand your audience, which can be extremely helpful when you are trying to market your affiliate website. So, after all, I could say that is an important factor if you want to crack the “how to affiliate program” dilemma. I know, unfortunately, is not always possible to find something that you are passionate about that also happens to be a truly profitable opportunity. If the niche that you are passionate about is not really profitable, you will need to start looking outside your interests to find another lucrative niche. And who knows … you could actually start to enjoy it over time …

Conclusion

When you are trying to find profitable niches with low competition, always keep in mind that you are looking for a niche which:

  • is evergreen
  • has enough motivated and active buyers
  • can be easily and efficiently penetrated with your preferred marketing methods
  • can be associated with enough high-quality keywords
  • it’s enjoyable as possible

Finally, one last advice on the whole “how to affiliate marketing program” topic … Many affiliate marketing experts will tell you that you should use the in-built reporting tools provided by some major affiliate networks in order to find a profitable niche. I have seen dozens of tutorials about “Finding profitable niches with Amazon’s Help”, “How to find a profitable ClickBank niche?”, “How to use ShareASale to find a profitable niche?”, etc. In my opinion these methods are delusive and unreliable, because each network or platform has a completely different evaluation system based on completely different weighting factors and ranking algorithms. Yes, these “internal stats” can help you to find the best-performing niches within a given affiliate network or to identify the best-selling products within a given niche, but they won’t help you to find the best platform-independent niche that really suits your needs. This is why I strongly recommend you to choose your niche using the above simple, two-step framework instead.

And forget the herd mentality … Why? Because ...

If everybody is doing it one way, there's a good chance you can find your niche by going exactly in the opposite direction.

And that's it my friends!

Hi Zsolt!
Thanks a lot for this useful tutorial!
My question is that how can you check the demand and the competition of a given niche?

Hi Zsuzsita,

Thanks for your feedback!

So ...

Demand .... Well, are many ways and indicators. Here are a few tips:

First of all any keyword research tool will give you some information regarding the associated search volume, expected traffic, etc

Second: Google Trends ...

Third: successful niche-related products promoted by the major affiliate platforms; each major platform has some sort of profitability indicator

Fourth: related online activity, interest and engagement on blogs, social platforms, forums, etc

And so on :)

Competition ... Putting aside the complex (paid) competition analysis tools and methods, it's quite easy ... Once you have a general idea regarding your niche, you'll find them everywhere: the Google Search Results Page, the niche-related online and offline communication channels, on social platforms and so on.

That sounds simple Zsolt.
At the same time, I would believe, it is the initial part of finding a profitable niche that really make the difference if you will make or break it - the searching and a bit analyzing parts. Once you hit it 'bingo', you will be cruising to collect the big bucks.
Thank you for taking time to create this important tutorial.
Bookmarked.

Once again, thanks for your time and your feedback Joe!

And I agree ... That's the secret: analyzing a bit those componenets ...

If you are talking about the cash credits, yes, I might collect those big $5 bucks :)

But the really important thing is to help others in finding a good niche. It's a quite common question for newcomers.

I believe the tutorial will be very useful to our new members who struggle with finding a profitable evergreen niche. I have seen, while many managed to identify their niche after the training, there are still many who stuck at that level.
Thanks again.

Joe:)

Hi Zed. Thanks for the info. One of my niches is very in demand right now but it has a ton of competition. So much so that I am having trouble finding topics that haven't been discussed a gazillion times. I am trying to put a different spin on the articles but it is getting difficult. Less competition would be great :).

I don't want to give it up because I know it is here to stay for the long term.
