There are TWO important things to remember about niches.

(1) ANY niche can be profitable
(2) You can always change your niche down the road

Don't over-think your niche and definitely do not look for a perfect niche. It is you and your efforts that make a niche perfect and I can assure you that you can be successful within any niche that you choose.

As outlined within the video, try to keep your niches more targeted. If you are too broad, the scope of your niche will become too vast and you will easily be overwhelmed. The more specific, the more engaging and interesting your website and content is going to be for your visitors.

If you have any questions regarding niches or this video, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

I want to promote myself as a musician and give live classes online to teach how to be yourself and find your own voice in the music industry.

My niche should refer to seniors primarily; such as how to create an income using the Wealthy Affiliate Program and a web site full of helpful ideas for seniors to improve their lives. That is my goal. Getting there seems to be a problem. Any advice would be welcome. John

Hi, thanks for this. It was really useful... my niche may be too broad, but I suppose I'll figure that out down the track. It's children's books for 11-16 year olds. I'm going to be doing reviews, best of lists etc.

Sounds pretty good to me, allows you to "split" into cats and pages and you will learn where your traffic is landind and thus grow the site. All the best! OldMule

The best way to find out is to follow the directions on how to research 'keywords' for finding your niche. There are almost any kind of niche you can think of, but not necessarily lots of competition in every one.

I found a niche that had very little competition, but my business is tanking, so be careful of being too specialized.

Good luck!

I liked the overview, but would have appreciated searching through a niche which was more specific to the kinds of niches that were not as broad as the "health" niche.
But thanks for allowing us to traverse the hardest field first. It might make my search a little easier. But I'm game. So here goes.

I am confused. I am looking for a niche. I love cooking and collecting recipes. When I go to DMOZ, I find cooking separated by category (ie, appetizers, breakfast, etc., and numbers after each one.) What do the numbers mean? To be the most successful, should I choose a category? Thanks!

Try "Google Alphabet Technique".
go to google - type: recipes a - see what comes up in suggestions. then b, then c, etc.

I have a big interest in Genealogy and I have traced my ancestry back to the 1600's already. I'm just not sure there is any way to make money in it. What do you think?
DNTL Premium Follow Me
Go for it! :) Every niche has it's possible affiliate programs. Type genealogy + affiliate in Google and you will see many results such as this one: http://www.ancestry.com/cs/us/affiliate
It is a good choice to go with something you love and/or have experience in. I'm sure you can find your own take on it and build a successful website. Good Luck!

This sounds like an excellent and very interesting niche to get into Randy. It looks like Genevieve has already found an affiliate program for you. Keep going through the training and let me know how things are going for you.

ancestry dot com dot au. They have an affiliate program for promoting monthly/yearly memberships. Also have "freebies" you can give away as incentives.
howmuch Premium Follow Me
That's awesome, Randy. Ancestry affiliates are available, as has been mentioned, and you could grab Amazon.com as an affiliate too and promote their genealogy books as well.

On a side note, I'm impressed you've got that far--I've only got to the 1850's and have bogged down clarifying and verifying. I love it, though.

So if I am interested in the health and wellness niche, Is it necessary, or optimal, to narrow the niche down to say, Vitamins & Herbal supplements ? or keep it broad and market all kinds of heath stuff, I honestly am into the entire spectrum of health and wellness so I feel as if marketing it all would work, Feedback?
nathaniell Premium Follow Me
I would definitely narrow it down. You can always go broader at a later date.
katheemis Premium Follow Me
Thanks for all that information. It makes it pretty simple to find a niche with so many pointed out.

Hi is liquor a good niche i like how liquor ages,what typical background,and where its from.
howmuch Premium Follow Me
Even that might be too broad. I would start with a particular liquor--whiskey, or rum or suchlike.
NT2014 Follow Me
I'd never visited DMOZ before. The topics are a great guideline to narrowing one's hobbies/interests down to the right niche. Thanks for a solid dose of clarity on this! :0)
