PAGE 1 – How to look at your surroundings for niche ideas

PAGE 2 – Clothing and accessory niche markets

PAGE 3 – Automobile, fishing and baseball niche markets

PAGE 4 – Travel, swimming and camping niche markets

PAGE 5 – Kitchen, music and sports tailgating niche markets

The topic of finding a niche when starting your affiliate marketing website still seems to escape people. It really is simple to find niche markets because we are totally surrounded by them all the time. When Kyle says in the training, that a niche can be practically anything, he is correct.

ARE YOU READY TO FIND SOME NICHES?

In this training tutorial I am going to post 3 different photographs per page. Then I will list the possible niche markets that are obvious to see within the pictures, as well as others that are not so obvious. Hopefully this will give you some ideas and help to expand your scope when searching for and breaking down your niches.

One thing to remember, just because a photograph might be of specific type of an event, this does not mean that all of the niche markets within that picture have to be a part of that event. For example, I have a picture of a baseball game, yet I list different niche markets that are not a part of baseball.

SO LET US GET STARTED!

NEXT UP = Find the niches in the clothing and accessory markets

This is very detailed with a lot of clarity.

Let me just ask? Can one target a sub niche like the the sub-music niche you showed and then build content on the various smaller niches i.e like Amplifiers, drum kit, cymbals, microphone or one should just pick a microphone as a niche and build content around it?
Reply
JerryHuang Premium
Yes, you can promote smaller niches in your sub-music niche. That's a good idea. If you just focus on something like a microphone as a niche, it'll be too narrow and hard to scale.

Yea, because I was thinking the sub of the sub-niche might be too narrow to scale. Great comment. Thanks Jerry.

I really liked your ideas. I was struggling to figure out what my niche could be. After reading through your posts its made it more easy for me to come up with something. My problem is i am passionate about many different things.

boomergp08 Premium
Thank you. I am happy my tutorial has helped to inspire new niche ideas for you. I also know the feeling of having multiple niches you would like to do.

What I did was to not do my most favorite first because I knew I would be making more than just one website in the years ahead.

I also knew that each website would be better than the first because of my gained experience in making them.

When I first started finding niches was like finding a needle in a haystack, I did not make this up my parents always said this.

Now I see possible niches every time I am online, I think it takes people time to understand niches when first starting a business online

Yes. That is exactly what needs to happen. Some people can grasp the understanding of what a niche is and some take a little longer. Once a person understands what is a niche, it is easier to find them all around us everyday.

Great post, Robert. I do have a question though.

Although anything can be a niche, not everything is easy to write content on that people actually search. For example, lets say I was in the beer and drink cooler niche (mentioned above), how much content can I truly write about, aside from reviews and trying to sell products, that will drive traffic to your site?

I don't know if this is completely off base from the point of the niche or not (still new to WA).

Hope you see this, I look forward to hearing your answer.
Thanks in advance.

edensbox Premium
I am sure there are all kinds of things you could find to write about. Types of product used to make beer. Types of distilling. I am sure you can think of more items if you have to.
Reply
NickStern Premium
That actually cleared up a lot of questions I had running through my mind. Thank you!
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
If you were to do a niche about beer and drink coolers you could do reviews on the different kinds, like shoulder soft wall coolers, coolers with wheels, compartmented coolers, and others.

Then you could write other content that talks about why certain coolers are good for certain environments like while camping, traveling on a road trip, at a barbecue or tailgate party.

You are welcome. The majority of people when first considering a niche will most times over-think the process and then start to procrastinate in their progression.

But the one mistake many people make is trying to find a niche that they deem to be profitable when they should be finding a niche they have a great interest in.

Personally I would not work with Bitcoin. It is too risky and just because there is a lot of buzz about it does not mean it is a good thing to get involved with.

You need to select a niche not based on how profitable it seems but rather on how well you can promote it to people. Remember, you are creating content to help people and not to sell to them.

Reply
Rbobejr1960 Premium
anything can be a potential niche or sub niche and yes if you promote them to people interested in them they could be great earners say for people wanting to travel. See if they have affiliate programs and apply. Also don't over look things that could help your readers also like books on travel, different luggage, things like that.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Both TripAdvisor and Booking.com have affiliate programs I have mentioned in the training. You would affiliate with these companies if your affiliate website is about traveling.

AirB&B does not have an affiliate program but they do have a referral program where you can earn points towards product purchases instead of earning money.

I think anything has potential if done properly. Mine niche website is Formula 1 related. I was already doing a F1 podcast, so it was just logical to build a website around it. I've only just started adding my affiliate links, and I'll continue to do so every day while still adding relevant content as well. Hope this helps!

Luxury Cars is too broad. You would need to narrow that down to something like the following.

Mercedes performance parts

Great post, but what confuses me is the content for many of these niches. For example - porcelain dinnerware. What could you possibly write about? Thanks!
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You could write about the elegant quality of certain kinds of porcelain dinnerware, how some that are polished are done so to protect against crazing and scratches.

You could also write about various styles and how some brands have a better reputation of quality and longevity of use. Then you could write a few personal stories of your experiences in using various types of dinnerware.

This latter subject can be fictitious if you do not really have any personal experiences, but if written with a level of creativity, can be quite convincing.

True, niches are all around! Question is how to monetise them?
Reply

You should always study a niche for all of the associated products that either compliment or work against it. Then you go to Google, type in the names of these products followed by the words Affiliate Program, and then see if any programs are listed. If an affiliate program is listed, it can be monetized.

Robert - Great post. As you pointed out there are niches everywhere, you just have to look to find them.

I'm kind of biased towards the tailgate pic. I spot an Eli jersey or two in that photo, which makes for an excellent NFL jersey niche.

Finger foods at a Giants tailgate party. It must have been an away game in LA.

Go Giants!
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Thanks Patrick. Though an Eli jersey on its own would be too narrow of a niche, a niche representing all kinds of products having to do with Eli Manning would make a great niche.

As for the finger food, it was a pre-season game and we normally do not bring in the big guns of gourmet food until the regular season. ;)
