How to Select A Profitable Niche
In order to be successful as an affiliate marketer, you have to
choose the right niche. The mistake a lot of affiliates make is trying to find
a product to promote before choosing a niche. This is not the best way to choose
a product, it's best to choose an evergreen niche first then worry about the
Much like a store, there's a variety of niches. Which will you choose?
I'm about to explain to you how to select a profitable niche.
First of all you, need an evergreen niche as I just mentioned. An evergreen
niche is a niche where people will always need what you have to offer. For
example a health product such as weight loss, anti aging, or an
embarrassing body odor; or self improvement products such as dating or
success. Evergreen products will always make you money because people will
always have needs and people will always experience these types of
issues. Products like these will always be in high demand because people are
always looking for solutions and they want quick solutions.
Plus the niche you choose need to be a niche where the market is
big enough and the demand is high. You need to choose a market that is starving
for the product you want to promote. If people are not hungry enough for the
product or niche, you need to steer away from it.
You need to also consider choosing a niche where you can find
products that people are desperate for. For example, think about the guy who is about to go on a date and has an on going problem with stinky breath; you could
choose a product in the health niche that will help this guy fix his bad breath
issue. Also think about the person who has a sexual problem; example premature
ejaculation or loss of sexual desire, you can find a product to promote that
will help people fix these problems. What about a person who
has infertility issues or the one who wants to
prevent identity theft; you can look for products geared towards
helping these people prevent identity theft and a book on healthy
eating to help prevent infertility.
The examples I give above are very good examples to help you get
started. You need to aim for niches that are making the money. I will provide
the steps below:
Ask yourself what is the problem that people are very desperate to fix?
Think about the problems that keep folks tossing and turning or even
awake all night. Think about the people in your life. What do they have
problems with and what do they always talk about concerning the problem? I have
a friend who is constantly talking about her excessive sweating
problem under her arms. I went one day to look up information to help her and
guess what; there were a lot of other people asking the same questions. Yahoo answers
is a good place to start when looking for niches and products.
Now what is it that you don't like about someone you
hang around? This could be a family member you live with or a friend. I know
someone in my life who has a problem and it is very nerve wreaking to be around
this person sometimes because it is an annoying situation.
Once you figure that
out, do some research and see what other people are saying on the internet
about similar problems. The more you can find other people talking about a particular
problem, the more of an indicator you're on to something good.
When you do your research ask yourself do people spend money in
the niche you are considering. If loads of people are spending money, it's a
good sign you've found your niche. You can even type in Google words
like "how do I", or "how can I" and see what else pops up. It will give you a great
idea what people are searching for.
Always remember that the internet is the first place people will
come when they are looking for a solution to their issues. You need
to be the person that can provide the solutions. You need to also look at other
products similar to the one you are considering after you've picked your niche.
You need to also make sure you can provide information on your site that no one
else has offered yet. This will put you ahead of the game if you can do this.
Competition will be fierce and you will have to pick the right kind of product
that you can successfully promote that will make you a comfortable
steady flow of monthly income from affiliate marketing. There are
many people selling products online and many will be selling
and promoting similar products you choose. If you can, you need to
choose a product that will allow you to make money through up-selling and
Before you make a final decision on what to promote and what
niche to choose, take a trip to Amazon's website and see what's selling in the book and
kindle book section. This will give you a strong indicator on what niche is hot
and what's not.
You should always remember that new niches are created daily and
you should always be on the look out for new things in technology, health,
and well everywhere. Think about how you can now tweet videos on Twitter.
Soon you will see people creating products on how to market or make money
tweeting videos. Look at Amazon kindle books, there are books out there on how
to make money through that channel. There will always be new products and
niches, but you have to pick the right one, that's the key. Also if you choose
something you have a little knowledge about or something where
you experienced you own problem or
something embarrassing that troubled you, it will always be easy to
keep up with a blog and write articles or blog post on your
own experiences. People will feel your past pain through your writing and will be more willing to check out what you recommend.
