- Level 1 - Getting Started
NICHES. The scariest word for most people when starting out. However, the idea of a niche should not scare you. Instead it should be 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, but it could be something that you would like to learn about. You don't need to BE an expert, you BECOME an expert.
I personally enjoy many different things. I enjoy basketball, I used to collect baseball cards, I like to go skiing, I am really interested in men's fashion, exercise, internet marketing, and I love everything about the online business world.
There are also many niches over the years that I have been very successful within without knowing anything about them before getting into them. Dieting, Karaoke, Cycling, Sun Protection...are just a few.
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 for information, for solutions, and spending billions of dollars or products/services 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 "Choosing Your Direction - It Starts With a Niche" 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.
Check out the video below.
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.
Task 1: Choose Your Direction
We want you to select the niche that interests you most and gets you the most excited. There is NO SUCH THING as choosing the wrong niche.
Here are a few example niches out of 1,000's of potential ones:
- Natural Skin Care
- Learn How to Play Basketball
- Starting an Online Business
- Learn Sand Art
- Baby Feeding
- Wine Making
- Cryptocoin Investing
- How to Write Faster
- Black and White Photography
- Go Kart Racing
- Make-up Tutorials
There are so many directions you can head, so simply choose an audience that you want to work with.
We have a "Niche Finder" tool that you can use to come up with ideas, it is very easy to use and will help you come up with all sorts of ideas.
Simply enter your ideas, and then click "Find Me Niches" and it will produce 10 targeted niches to your search.
===> Access the Niche Finder Tool Here
Also, note that you can always change your niche down the road. 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 have any questions about your niche, feel free to leave a question below in the comments area and we will help you out.
If you are REALLY STUCK at this point and you cannot decide on a niche, perhaps you may be interested in the make money/affiliate marketing 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 (one of the most lucrative affiliate programs in the world).
If you have any questions about your "niche" or direction of your business and you want to get feedback from the community, leave them below and we will be happy to help.
Onto the next lesson, building a website! Exciting stuff is ahead! :)
Yes make up products can be a little too broad. Try digging deeper, like what kind of products?
You can also use the niche finder located on the home page under dashboard.
Hope this helps and wishing you the best of luck on your journey to success!
Where you are at an advantage is that you know how you want to develop your business, and grow your range. This can help you when you decide on a domain name and branding (logos and site colors). So, don't have a domain saying "teenmakeup" unless you are going to focus solely on makeup for teens (which will keep you busy for a long time if you want to go that route).
So my advice is to brand with your medium to long term direction in mind, but focus on a more specific sector in the early stages.
Hope that helps a little.
Warm regards and best of luck,
I completed the 1st level with creating website successfully but,
I'am forced to stop here because to upgrade my leve a$$$ is must and I Can't afford .....
You may remain a starter indefinitely and communicate with the platform indefinitely; you may search for resources in the magnifying glass top menu. You can also start building content for a focused niche website. You can join the platform when you can; no rush here.
Moreover, I would consider joining the platform if you are serious about pursuing an online business.
First a disclaimer - I am brand new here, so take my comment with a grain of salt.
I love the idea of herbal tea as medicine. I think that really makes herbal medicine approachable and even enjoyable. "Tea Time Is Me Time" is catchy but I don't know if it conveys the nuance and depth of your intention of herbal tea as medicine. That distinction is key to your brand, I think you want it front and center.
That is a great niche, but you’re right. It may be a bit too broad.
Herbal Tea is a type of herbal medicine. You can come up with many keyword ideas around herbal tea.
As for the name, it is catchy, but try to focus on what your website entails.
Maybe “Natural Remedies with Herbal Tea” could be a good name because it entails the different kinds of treatments you can receive when drinking certain kinds of herbal teas.
Hope this helps!

Also, as this may affect someone's life, it may fall under Google's YMYL (your money or your life); you can learn more here.
Initially, you would want to discuss an aspect of a focused niche with a qualified group of people who would be your target audience. You walk them through your journey, give your visitors sound advice and promote products however feasible.
