Finding the Pain

Once you identify your starving crowd of people, do some research to understand what they need and want.If you followed my advice in section 1 of this training module, you know that it is easier to know what people want if you are a part of the same group.

Another way to learn about what people in your starving group of people want is to type some keywords into Google, Bing and Yahoo.

For example, I have a passion to help women who are either recently divorced or about to be divorced. By typing in “what every divorced woman needs to know” or some variation of those keywords into the search engines, I am able to research the urgent needs and burning desires of my starving target group.

By simply skimming through a few articles that pop up in the search engines, I learned that women in life transitions want advice they can trust concerning many things like:

    1. ·Finding an Attorney
    2. ·Finding a Financial Advisor
    3. ·Making Financial Decisions
    4. ·Questions to Ask a Financial Advisor
    5. ·How to deal with spousal abuse
    6. ·How to deal with spousal affairs
    7. ·How divorce affects children
    8. ·Who gets what in a divorce
    9. ·What are the divorce rules in my state
    10. ·How to set up a co-parenting agreement
    11. ·What are the child support rules in my state
    12. ·What if he doesn’t pay child support
    13. ·Financial survival for divorced women
    14. ·What every woman needs to know about retirement
    15. ·Life transition considerations
    16. ·How to bolster self-confidence after an emotionally devastating life event

Notice what I accomplished by asking one question in Google.I found more than a dozen topics that I can write about.If your question produces sparse results, there is a good likely hood that you haven’t found a niche with a lot of interest.That means it’s not going to be very lucrative for you.

It could also mean that you need to more broadly redefine your keyword search.

Is this starting to make sense?

I like to keep a list of topics that I have brainstormed or that I have found by asking questions on Google, Yahoo and Bing on an Excel spreadsheet along with related keywords.Doing so helps me organize the content for my website.

Hi Rebecca,

I was thinking of sharing my life experiences.. for example, how do i manage with unemployment, sister's marriage, life after graduation.. basically telling people out there that it is okay to go through it, i have gone through it, this is what i did.. i wonder where does this category fall under?

Could it be self help? unemployment?

Would be great to get opinions from you and anyone who can relate to my train of thoughts!

Hi Munira,

I have something of the same idea but i have no idea of how it can be profitable as a niche. I am a realtor and aspiring christian speaker to women's groups. I speak to women from my own experiences, abuse, death, infidelity, divorce and how they can get from heartbreak to where God wants them. In the real estate market I have been an expert on getting people home loans even when it seemed impossible. I have just started my ministry
and I am in the process of getting speaking engagements set up. If i can find an answer for my niche I will pass the informatoin on to you, please do the same for me.

Wishing you great success in your online business.

God Bless, Judith

Hi Rebecca,

You really have opened my eyes to finding a profitable niche. I have toyed with a couple of different niches but I couldn't decide on one that I thought would either be profitable or me having enough knowledge to make my site authoritative in order to drive traffic and potential customers to a website.

I am going to read your training again possibly a few more times and take notes.

The training here at WA is beyond words how good it is but they ask you to pick a niche in the beginning of the training and create a website based on that niche but they do not go into detail like your training here and I think it confuses members on what is the best niche to pick just as i have experienced but I think after reading your training it will give me a better understanding of what to decide on for a good profitable long lasting niche.

Thank you Again,

Thank you rebeccas:

This was very well done, while being thoughtfully laid out for the student reader. I was really intrigued and impressed by the level of sophistication and expertise, which was evident in your presentation.

The material also contains an exceptionally high level of focus, on the relevant subject matter, while going into lengthy detail about the specifics involved (how it works).

Yet as I've seen before with Wealthy Affiliate Lesson plans it was pleasantly straight forward and was rather easy to comprehend due mostly to its clarity.

Finally, I enjoyed following along with your step by step concepts through how to actually profit online, because they really did illustrate quite well to me, where the money is.

Again, thank you so much for sharing this, because it was truly an awesome learning experience for me!
Ok,Rebecca,Thank you for your tutorial. But finding a niche is so complicated that I have to go through many person's tutorial to grasp it, because I find myself lost in the ocean of niches. I must learn to swim in various ways to reach it. I learned from you that I have to 1..find the right audience 2..To understand their problems give them some solutions. I am trying to find the right audience, but I am failing. Any more help from someone , please.

What life experience do you have? perhaps it would help to try and find something that you're able to relate to personally.
Redundancy, retirement, marriage, divorce, children, grandchildren. - Why did you start with Wealthy Afflilate? - Helpful if you decide the to follow Bootcamp.
What are your hobbies, interests. Sports ( any).
Why do you do the things you do?
Where to get your pets next Halloween outfit?
What problem do you want to help people with and provide them with solutions for?
I hope that is a little helpful. J

Interesting niche training. I know now what I will do!
It seems I've been living this niche for the last 30 years.
Now I know something about it to write about i!
I think in everyone out there that there is some inner thought will eventually rise to the surface of your mind and you can use it!
I hope to have my site up soon and will show you what I mean!
