What is a Profitable Niche - Tips for Choosing a Niche
Passions / Hobbies Markets
Just like with the Evergreen markets, those that engage in the Hobbies and Passions of people can also be highly profitable. Think about it! If someone enjoys doing something, don’t you think that they will continue to spend money doing it?
Marketing to people’s passions, you are targeting an area that many people spend a lot of money on. For me personally I could easily drop $100.00 every time I go to a baseball game at Yankee Stadium. That doesn't include the cost of the ticket & parking.
Now I am not going to be able to list all of the Passions and Hobby niches here. There are just way too many of them! Just think of all the sub niches available in this niche market. These can all bring huge profits depending on how you market to your target audience.
MY PASSIONS & HOBBIES
I am into many different hobby niches, some can even be called passions because I just cannot do without them. I need my weekly fix otherwise my week is not complete. I am sure we all have something we cannot do without every day or week, like coffee.
I know people that cannot start their day without a cup of Starbucks coffee and guess what? Starbucks has an online store where you can by fresh ground coffee and gear with an affiliate program. We all have or need our fixes. So here are some of mine.
The SPORTS NICHE is a massive and very profitable niche. There are so many kinds of sports and sub niches within each sport. Let me mention some. Being that it is currently Baseball Season here in the U.S. I will focus on my favorite team, the NY Yankees.
No matter what team you target there are many sub niches associated with it. There is the obvious sub niche of Baseball and related equipment and clothing apparel related to a specific team itself or a specific player. Even more sub-sub niches are available too!
- NY Yankees Memorabilia
- NY Yankees Jerseys (generic or player specific)
- NY Yankees Caps (One-Size or Fitted)
- NY Yankees Clothing for Boys/Men and Girls/Women
- NY Yankees Baseball Related Toys
- NY Yankees Baseball Team iPhone Cases
- Baseball Gloves
- Baseball Bats
- Baseball Cleats
- Baseball Tickets and Ticket Packages
- Baseball Daily Fanrasy Sports Memberships
Every baseball team has individual players who are famous within all of Major League Baseball. Niches can be assigned to just them alone. All of these sub niches can be narrowed down more, and this is just for one team & sport. The Sports Niche is huge.
The VIDEO GAME NICHE is another very big and profitable niche. But like most niches you must narrow it down for it is way too broad. Even if you were to narrow it down to only Sony PlayStation games, you would still have to focus on a specific aspect or genre.
Being that I used to work in the Video Game Design Industry, I have insider knowledge into how video games are created from beginning to end. So one of my earlier niche affiliate marketing websites was on the correct approach to video game testing.
Though I used to manage a Nintendo video game testing department, I wouldn't expect most people who decide to get into the Video Game niche to narrow it down to the niche topic I did. You would have to narrow it down to somethings like I list below.
What was special about the approach I took was that as a Video Game Tester you are required to test every kind of game genre there is, so I didn't need to narrow down my niche further. However others will. These are some of the highly profitable sub niches.
- Video Game Consoles
- Game Controllers (Generic, Steering Wheels, Flight Sticks,...)
- Audio Headsets
- Portable Video Game Systems
- Game Hard Drives & SD Cards
- Portable Travel Cases
- Game System Skins
- Shooter Games
- Racing Games
- Fighting Games
- Arcade Games
- Role Play Games
- Sports Games (Baseball, Football, Basketball, Soccer,... - focusing on one sport)
- Simulation Games
- Retro Games and After Market Game Systems
- Poker & Casino Games
- Nintendo Specific Games
- PlayStation Specific Games
- Xbox Specific Games
- PC Games
- Online Games & Download Games
- Learning Games
- Games for Girls
- Plus much more!
The TRAVELING NICHE is a great one and could be quite lucrative as people tend to pay big money for travel packages to various destinations. You will also want to consider all of the types of niches that go into the Travel niche beyond just the vacation destination.
I am a huge fan of Disney World in Florida and you can spend quite a bit of money when going there. But there are ways to save a lot of money too and that is what many will want to know, especially if they are traveling with their children.
- Carry-On Rolling Luggage & Garment Bags

- Event Tickets
- Sightseeing Tours
- Airline Tickets
- Travel Insurance Plans

- Plus much more!
MORE OF MY HOBBIES/PASSIONS

- Movie & TV Show Figurines

Can you now see that no matter how popular you may think a niche is, there is no way it is too saturated for you to make a HUGE profit? The sky is the limit when it comes to the amount of niche ideas you can come up with in regards to these profitable niche markets.
When you start out as narrow as possible, you can grow your niche broader as time goes by and thus tap into more money from various other aspects of that niche. I hope you have learned a little more insight into the many different Evergreen & Passion Niches.
I tried to give you some better ideas for different niches to select for your next website. These ideas can bring you many profitable niches, and by the way, can be combined with other niches too. Such as the Cooking Niche can tie into the Health Niche.
