How to narrow down broad niches. Examples and tips.

Last Update: November 01, 2018

Hi folks, one common issue I see (and have faced personally) is that people tend to in most cases select niche markets that are either NOT niches at all or are too broad to work with.

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):

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. :)

one question I haven't heard answered is how do people post tons of content to a narrowed down niche, eg biotin product.

Talk about any and all products/foods/vitamins that help hair grow and cause it to fall out, and review different biotin supplements and topics about ut.

I think this is part of the problem with my niche website. My site is about back pain specifically about my experience. I have been all over the place with this topic, thing's that have worked for me. I have written about elliptical training, as a low impact way to exercise. But I have also been all over the place with other stuff like massage chairs, inversion tables, etc. I have probably confused Google ๐Ÿ˜. I think my focus has been too broad.

I added this to my list of bookmarks so I could look back at it. I'm getting ready to narrow my niche, so I'm researching to find the best spots where people need help solving their problems.
