Niches...this is the scariest word for most people when starting out. However, the idea of a niche should not scare you. Instead it is rather exciting!


What is a niche?

A niche is a distinct segment of a market, in other words an "audience".

When choosing a niche that fits you, you should be choosing something that is ideally an interest, a passion, a hobby, a problem, a need or a want. Almost anything you can think of is a niche and that is why we are going to get you to choose YOUR niche based on things that you are interested in. You can earn money online from absolutely every single niche because there are billions of people out there searching every day.

The idea of a niche can be a little confusing at first, so I have created a video walk-through for this lesson that is going to walk you through what a niche is, how you earn money through a niche, and I will get you choosing your initial direction online. Watch the video below...


DISCUSS THIS VIDEO HERE:
Choosing Your Direction - It Starts With a Niche
!

Your online business should not feel like a day job. Earning money online should be fun, and it is fun. This all starts with choosing a niche that you are interested in and will enjoy working with.

The more you enjoy doing something the less it feels like a job and the more productive you are going to be. Carson and I are immensely passionate about online business and teaching people how to make money online, so that is the niche we have chosen with Wealthy Affiliate.

Your niche could be anything, but at the core of your niche selection it should be something that you "like". Something you enjoy. Something you can talk about. Something you want to learn about.

But Really, a Niche is a Group of People

In the simplest form, a niche is really a group of people looking for stuff. When you select your niche, you want to avoid being too broad with your niche selection. What people fail to understand is the fact that there are millions of people looking for stuff online within what seems to be the smallest of niches, but they really are not.

Because of this, I have spent some time putting together a blog post outlining how you should approach your niche selection, how to avoid going too broad with your niche, and how to really narrow it down to a group of people that are more specific and targeted.

READ BLOG POST: A Niche is a Group of People Looking for New Stuff

I provide you with some real life examples of how to break down a broad niche into more specific groups. There is also a very active discussion there if you have any questions about your particular niche or you want to join in the on the conversation. ;)


Task 1: Choose Your Direction

We want you to select the niche that interests you most and gets you the most excited. You can either choose your own niche at this point or you can choose the "make money" niche (that should be your choice if you have no idea what niche to choose).

A few things that you should understand about niches are:

(1) You are going to be writing content within your niche
(2) You are going to be communicating within your niche
(3) You are going to be choosing products to promote within your niche
(4) You need to enjoy helping people within your niche.
(5) Your first niche PROBABLY won't be your last (so don't worry about it being perfect)
(6) Any niche can become a "full time" successful business

There is NO SUCH THING as choosing the wrong niche.

Also, note that niches can always change. Just because you are choosing a niche now does not mean you will be in this particular niche forever. Either way, please do not spend a week choosing your niche. Within the next 15-30 minutes (maximum) you should have your "starting point" niche chosen.

If you are REALLY STUCK at this point and you cannot decide on a niche, perhaps you may be interested in the "make money" niche.


If you don't have a niche at this point, this will be your niche and we have an Affiliate Bootcamp dedicated to those that are interested in promoting Wealthy Affiliate. Go here if that is you.

I've heard about WA over the years but I do not know what kind of business I could do as in years past tried so many that I cut it all off. where do I start as far as a concept/idea.. I'm into music. I do karaoke. I wanted to do a karaoke booth business but that never seemed to get off the ground. Also, I know nothing about building websites but I do know you have to pay to maintain them. Lastly, most of anything on line is 'advertising' that also requires a budget. so I guess my real question is, bottom line what is a person expected to invest in order to get something going successfully?

My friend and I brewing beer in his garage and I was thinking to do a website about german beer brewing and would be able to create affiliate links to brewing equipment. Not sure if my niche would be brewing in general (maybe too broad) or better german beer brewing. Not sure if this is a good niche at all what do you think?
Reply
Oli Premium
As a german I find it interesting ;-) I don't know the numbers how many people are looking for brewing equipment. But if you have some expertise and can provide helpful information, with a few insights/pictures of you and your buddy brewing beer, I guess it can work. Perhaps you can sell your brewed beer some day?!
Reply

I also brew. I think it would be a good idea. I often spend time online looking for methods of streamlining my process.
Reply
Hi Oli, thanks for your reply. I thought we could document every single brewing session with all the mistakes we make a long the way and how we still managed to get a decent beer out of it :) Selling commercially this would definitely be great but it's still a long way to go.
Reply
It looks like there is definitely some interest just need to get my head around the website structure and content. You always learn from your mistakes and its probably a good idea to share that with others to as you say streamline the process and own success.

If u gonna make profit out of it, go ahead

I think you can do well with home brewing methods and affliate products. In fact this was a niche I thought would be interesting to pursue as my son does home brewing and is always buying equipment and brewing ingredients. I have no brewing background myself so need to leave it to the experts- you!
My feeling that German brewing is too specific. Even a Brewery that opened a year ago near us has abandoned their German only beer business plan.

hi, im want to ask if i upgrade to premiun in 1st 7 days $19month so next month is i need to pay again and what is the cost or no need? Another question is about the course if i upgrade premiun i can learn more lesson course then if i not upgrade next time the lesson with still ther ,example i learn until course 4 5 next time i nt premiun anymore the progress still saved ?i can get back to learn course 4 5 anytime or im jus have course 1 only?
Reply
BetterDays2C Premium
Yes, if you upgrade during the 7 days, you get the first month for $19.00. The following month you will then be charged $49.00 for each month thereafter. That is unless you sign up for the yearly upgrade. If you can swing it, this is a real money saver. If you upgrade after your first month, the cost is $359.00 for the year. That works out to only approximately $29.00 per month for the year.

As a free member, you get access to the first 10 lessons. In order to access ALL of the lessons and the videos, you will need to upgrade to Premium. Some people can get their websites going by not upgrading, but those people are pretty tech savvy and already have a lot of knowledge about how to do it. If you are not, I would suggest you go Premium. Hope this answered your questions. Good Luck!

So if I upgrade to premium next month I don't have enough money to pay what will happen because USD exchange to my country money relly is a big amount to me
Reply
feigner Premium
what i would advise is to save up for the yearly subscription, this way you will not be chasing the dollar every month.
i know it is a very big commitment, but you are starting your journey to a long term online business.
the training here is very good and will result in you settin up your own online business.
so stay a free member at the moment, save as hard as you can - have a look around the site using the top search bar and when you have the money for yearly plus a domain then sign up and work hard over the year to learn and implement the business model taught here. can i guarantee you will be successful - no - only you can become successful and you can start being successful by looking around the site and making sure this is for you.
good luck with your online journey

you do not have to upload Jaaxy. Just sign up for it. No credit card necessary and free to use for so many searches, can't remember exactly how many. (if you use it all up, you can always sign up again with a different email, shh). If you decide you like it, you can subscribe. It actually is very good, but I don't subscribe. You can also use the WA keyword tool for absolutely free.
Reply
BetterDays2C Premium
You do not have to have Jaaxy for keyword search. It is an option to purchase for $49, but you don't need to pay for it. You do get to sign up for 20 free searches. Once you use those searches, you then can use the WA Keyword Lists Tool that is on the left side right under the RED UPGRADE YEARLY. Just click on that and you can use it to do the same keyword research. I only use that as I do not want to spend any more money right now either. Jaaxy is not necessary. You can move forward without it. Any questions, ask.

You can use the keyword tool here in WA...this is mentioned in the same lesson...it is fine, I don't use JAAXY either.

2 and 3 You need to have a menu setup and added to the 'Manage locations' http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-add-navigation-menu-in-wordpress-beginners-guide/ because some themes have multiple menu points so WP needs to be told which goes where for it to appear in the appropriate place.

hey chuck, what would you like to see in a site about model cars?
would you like to see new models coming through - the chance to buy before anyone else?
info about how to paint your car, mod it, what are the special addons you can get for the kits?
would you branch into rc cars?
would you be up to adding a forum? it is a lot of work
sit down and write everything you would like to see on the site, put all of these ideas into some semblance of order on a mindmap
get the structure of your site worked out before you make the menus
have fun with your niche

I know I had the same problem. You have to go into your settings and check a few things allowing the pages to show on a menu at the top. The best way to figure things out here is to click on everything and read what you can do in your different settings. This is the best way to learn how to operate this web builder. Keeping in mind things change a little with the different site themes you pick.

In your dashboard look under appearance and then click on menu. Here you will see everything you can do with your menu. The page titles are added here. When you go to your site live if you click on the menu tabs you will see your pages. Have you done your privacy page? It will be there too. Your dashboard is where you can do most things. You can click on posts or pages to see all you have created. Hope this makes some sense and helps. Or as Gregory explains it too.

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Reply
Pernilla Premium
Choose a subject/niche which you like a lot, something you are passioned about. Then it is easier to create a blog or write the website content and at the same time it makes fun to work.
Think about what's your hobbies or what experiences you have made in life.
Your preferred niche must have an audience/customers - people who are searching what you are offering.
Figure out what sort of products you can offer which suits your niche (Google around and look for affiliate programs within your niche). If you find a lot of products in the niche, then it is a niche where you should be able to earn money.
Hope this helps you further on your WA-journey!

Go with something you really like doing. Don't feel it's too "stupid" or that it seems too odd to make a website about, with 6 billion people around the world we always find a similar interest.

If you like taking a walk on the beach, maybe consider doing stuff on beaches and which ones have the best views, best sand/water color.. etc. Or if you're like me I did a DIY site, where I am not constrained like some of the other DIY sites. I found something that interested me, found an issue (that I felt DIY involved more things than just cooking and craftes) and I improved on it.

You'll get it!

Hi Jasmin - think about what you have a passion for - write down these things. Then think about the list you may have produced - then try ranking those things - then ask yourself could you write about this topic &/or read about it without ever getting bored? That should lead you to an idea of what may be a good niche for you. You can then hone it down further by thinking about where you live &/or where or how you interact with your niche already.

It is a learning process - if you pick a niche you love - all the hardwork becomes easier thereafter. Hope this helps - Harjinder

My non-financial goals are:
In 10 days, learn as much as I can from WA, get an affiliate marketing website up and running. More importantly than that, have a great time on my birthday in two days' time!

In 30 days, spend less time hustling for work and more time on myself, getting more exercise and writing more (I'm doing course on short story writing).

In six months, have enough free time to be able to concentrate on my writing full time.

In a year's time I'd like to have the book I am working on published.

Post back if this does not help so we can try something else to get you back on track.

Hi William, what was the issue?

Hello, I just joined yesterday and I'm a newbie, willing to learn.
It does seem a bit over whelming at first but, after starting in on the lessons, It's not bad. ~ thumbs up! ~

Good for you Chyrel. It just gets better and better as you move along.

Hello Chyrel,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! It does seem a bit overwhelming in the beginning, but it does get better. I promise. Take one lesson at a time. And if you didn't understand something, go back and watch the video again. I have had to do that a few times. No worries. :) If you have questions, don't be afraid to ask. We are here to help you. This is a very friendly and helpful community.
All the best as you move forward.

Welcome to WA, Cheryl! I've been on for just over a week now. It's amazing how fast everything progresses if you can find a couple of hours each day to commit to getting through the lessons. Wishing you much success on your journey!

Si tardo más de 7 días para completar el curso gratuito perderé todo lo que haya hecho y no podré acceder de nuevo a la plataforma?

hola señora usted ya esta realmente en esto cree que esto si funciona ?

Hola. Me registré hace pocos minutos. No sé si funciona. Lo que veo es que el factor tiempo no ayuda al proceso de aprendizaje si sólo se tienen 7 días para las 10 lecciones. Usted está desde cuándo?

See if it works in a different browser, it works here ok.

If you get the same result in a different browser it could be a routing and network issue either at your end, your ISPs networking/DNS, or delivery of content for WA, aka, CDN...

If you are able to browser in a different browser then clear the other browsers cache to see if this helps connect, the browser cache could be corrupted for example.

Always have dreamed of a personal website and within days the dream will come true. What an accomplishment to be able to link around the world in real time and see reaction & results from my coffee table. Astonishment and so gratifying that I can independently do business and prosper at a rate much faster than a hotdog stand or some lost storefront with taxes to pay.
Six months from now will determine how strong my online foundation is and how I can further develop the framework to support personal independent living style from home or on the road.
The goal being a [PT]. That being a part-time tourist and a full-time traveler.
Follow me though the clouds of dust if you will,

David that was an awesome post and I really like how you clarified the 6 months. Instead of rushing ahead you realize the foundation may have a few cracks that need fixing too. Kudos and I wish you the very best!

My domain is with godaddy and it says DNS Only (Hosting) and has no options to change anything
Reply
MsMerry Premium
yes there are Robert. I use GoDaddy so hang on a minute and I will get it all for you. Okay?
Reply
MsMerry Premium
ready? click on your domain in Godaddy, and then click on settings and nameservers and then manage. Where you go from here is where you put this info in. NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM
NS2.MYWAHOSTING.COM You will have to click on the custom button first then replace the godaddy nameservers with the above. Then click save. I think that is all. Then wait for an email and you will be good to go today.

None of those options are there. under the 3 tabes is a black field. and says DNS Only (Hosting) above.

See if this helps, do you see anything like the photos?

https://uk.godaddy.com/help/change-nameservers-for-my-domains-664

https://uk.godaddy.com/help/set-custom-nameservers-for-domains-registered-with-godaddy-12317

I know these are UK links but the process is the same.

When did you purchase your domain? And was it ever hosted a GD? Is your domain name already pointed at hosting elsewhere? Or have pointed your domain to GD from somewhere else.

DNS hosting only usually means 'offsite DNS' which indicates that your site could already directed either to or from GD, thogh there could be another explanation.

If you cannot find what you need then contact GD tech support and explain what you are trying to achieve.

are you going to see earnings right away once you are set up

No, Marynilda, and it could take up to 6 months. The learning process is most important right now. Follow each training module and then take action on what kyle says to do and you will find yourself moving along nicely. Just reach out if you need help. WE are all here to help.

How do I add information on my pages linking to the affiliate programs like Amazon or Microsoft? Do I need to pass a training with each one of them too? Any help is very much appreciated.
All the best

Do the lessons, you will find most of what you seek inside...though to be fair, some of it, you won't see until Lvl 2 training/lessons onwards, which you will not have access to unless you move to premium membership.

Alternatively, you can google or bing your question if you have not done so already. Everything in here is out there too, but of course, it also means you have to sift through it yourself.

You do not need to do training for affiliate programs generally, you just need to join and have some traffic coming to your website in order to benefit from them.

Thank you NeBro! I imagined I could always find it on Google, but given the amount of info that I already need to get through, I was hoping for a shortcut
Reply
HisbelA Premium
By the way, How many levels of training are on the Premium side?
Reply
NeBro Premium
For theOnline Entrepreneur Certification, there are 5 courses of 10 lessons each, so another 40 lessons beyond what you are able to see in your trial period.

For the Affiliate Bootcamp, there is a total of 7 phases, each with about 10 lessons per phase.

There are no shortcuts when you are learning new things. If you miss out chunks, you generally miss something fundamental, this can have a huge negative impact on your success in the long term.

You know this is true, you are a seasoned and accomplished academic already, so you understand the nature of progressive learning and building on foundations.

I believe you will do well with this program and the knowledge you gain from it, your background has given you a solid foundation and an understanding of the learning process itself, from which you can springboard into a new direction such as this.

Best wishes

You have put a smile on my face! But as any old teacher knows, it does not matter how much experience you might have or not, we all misbehave when we are sitted on the pupil side of the classroom. And I will never grow out of being cheeky

I might be able to help you with some of that question. You don't need to take any courses with Amazon, Microsoft I'm not sure, but Amazon you can just find their site and go to the bottom of the page and look for the Amazon Associates link under the title Make Money With Us and click it. Open an account if you don't already have one and there will be instrucyions on how to get hop links for the products you want to promote.

Hope that helps and I hope you have sucess on WA

Yep. Just look at Site Rubix on the left. Click Site Domains and you will see a button that says "Transfer Domain to WA".

Can I have more than one niche?
Reply
Oli Premium
Of course you can. But I recommend you start with one.
Reply
BManor Premium
You can have as many as you wish but me personally, I would keep each website to a specific niche.
Reply
Evon1 Premium
I'm with Oli...much better to start with one, and when that one is successful, you can branch out into the others. :)

I'd say pick the one first that you're most passionate about, one you can write 100+ articles on...or talk about forever and ever. You can also do further research on the topic to be able to continue to give your readers cutting-edge information.

Welcome to WA and Blessings on your journey,

Was that helpful?

Gotta say that makes sense.

If it helps I would like to add to what Evon1 said. Another way to get more information on your niche is to buy an ebook that gives you Private Label Rights or PLR. There are lots of sites that sell ebooks for about a dollar. With PLR you can copy and paste articles or rewrite them to make them your own.

One tip I would give you is to read through the articles carefully as you use them and make sure the spelling, punctuation and grammer are ok.
