How to find your passionate niche topic and narrow down broad niches.

Last Update: January 14, 2021

Hi folks, there's 2 common issues I see (and have faced personally) with the topic of niches and they are:

1) That people have a hard time choosing one.

2) When they do pick one, in some cases it ends up being either a niche market that is NOT really niche at all or it is a niche, but it's too broad.

Well this post is going to help you solve both problems and:

1) It's going to help you isolate YOUR unique and profitable niche.

2) Help you move forward with that niche with WA and turn it into a real online business.

Remember, WA's training advises people head the route of selecting specific niche markets to see success and I can relate to this very well. So in my years of doing this stuff, I'd like to share how I've been narrowing down broad markets and making them into niches.

The following is a screenshot I took from a YouTube video I made about niches. The whole point of this screenshot is to illustrate that as you define a specific topic more and more, the more niche-y it becomes. Here are some examples:


Now use this as a signal light. Red means no go, yellow means use caution (broad examples) and green topics are niches.

Now you don't need to use any of the ones I used as examples above but you should see the progression of how a general topic becomes a broad niche topic, and how that becomes a specific niche topic and it's the specific niche topic you want to go for.

Additionally, here's 3 more tips for you:


For more brainstorming ideas, here's a list of 50 niches (again you don't need to go with any of them, but just see how the logic works there):

The next step (After you picked the niche):

It's simple: Start the main traning in Wealthy Affiliate which is the online entreprenuer certification course:

This is the exact advise I give to everyone who asks me about niches and how to get started.

In short, by choosing a niche you love that you know is profitable (and you will if you use this guide), and combining that with the Wealthy Affiliate training to take that niche and turn it into a real online business, you're going to be starting off on the best path to your success in Wealthy Affiliate, online and in your life.

The lessons I shared with you in this article took me YEARS to master and figure out, but now you possess that knowledge and it only took a few minutes to learn :)

So if you have any questions about this stuff, ask me below!

This is an amazing article ever for me here in my 6 days old on WA. It's short and precise. But why fitness is not in health industry or market?

And i feel i can comment negatively on what u call 3 parameters in choosing a niche but with my experience compared to yours in this business, I decide not to do so.

Instead help me, is tourism or adventure as industry itself? What about traveling? I guess they have some similarities but i want to hear from you as an expert.

Thanks Vitaliy,
Faustin

Hi Faustin, fitness is part of health but something like six pack abs would be a niche in this case.

Regarding your questions, here's a few options:

Tourism-->Touring exotic locations.
Tourism-->Touring popular hiking locations.
Tourism-->Touring historic places.

Traveling-->How to solo travel.
Traveling-->How to travel on a budget.
Traveling-->Best hiking trails.
Traveling-->Best traveling spots for students.

There you go :)

This looks quite interesting to me. I have been thinking of the travels industry. This form of categorization will help to put things in better perspective. Even though I am yet to decide on the niche to start with.

Should the niche topic be popular or not? I mean, the more popular it gets, the bigger competition, right? And if I got it correctly, even something that seems to be unpopular might be interest among 3,7 billions of people with internet access, so it SHOULD be unpopular. Am I thinking right? Please feel free and be open if I am thinking wrong. :D

Yes the niche topic should be popular but because its a niche, you will see less competition. The training in WA will help you monetize it.

Ok than. Let me show you my "chain" and I would love to know on which stage should I stop and build.

Home interior > home decor > cozy home decor > specifficaly: lamps/carpets/pillows etc.

Also, let me explain that girls loooove cozy stuff at home :D Should I just go into stuff that makes home cozy, or specifically turns into just one part of that (like pillows or window curtains).

This has always been a sticking point for me. Thanks for your explanation!

One thing that has helped me a lot is something I heard once: Niche is a decision, not a eureka moment.

In the end, we need to make a decision and test it out - and your parameters are great for helping with that decision. :)

Hi,
Clear and easy to follow. There is a ton of questions asked about Niches so I have a post I can guide them too now. Thank you.

It's great to see you in live chat also. You was there for me when I shouted out for help. So Thank you for that. I see you there for Susan to @marley. You make time for us it means a lot.

Debs :)
