In the online world of affiliate marketing the number one question that everyone ask is “how to find my niche”.
This can sometimes be a difficult question. So we will take a look at some factors that plays a part in finding someone’s niche.
Finding Your Lane
Now a niche is a word that not to long ago gained notoriety in today’s society. It’s especially used within the online community. I’ve come to find out that a niche can be any venture or title someone can make money in.
I always found this funny that people would always mispronounce and explain the word but in all actuality I believe that a niche is just another word for “nitch” which means something that you’re good at.
It sounds to me that someone might have mispronounced or spelled it differently and somehow it stuck.
Or better yet it sounds like someone from overseas coined the word trying to pronounce it. No matter the case wherever this word originated from I’m here to say that the word niche is here to stay and doesn’t look like it will be going nowhere anytime soon.
I’m Up For Ideas
Now to be honest there’s a niche in just about everything. Literally anything a person can think of they can turn that idea into a niche.
The question a person has to ask themselves is can money be made within the particular niche they’ve chosen.
In other words do people use or need services in this particular area? The key to finding your niche is to answer these 2 questions and if the answer is yes to either one of them then you may have found a niche you can make money in.
Finding Your Way
In the real world I have tried to find my niche in all kinds of things. Sad to say it hasn’t led to success yet.
Finding a particular niche can be harder that you think but the key is to try not to over think it or make your area of expertise to vague. For example you may want to try your hand at men’s clothing.
However, men’s clothing is very vague so it might be hard to sale within that niche. But if your narrow down the selection and become more specific (e.g. high fashion, exercise gear, men shoes, etc) you have a better chance at cornering the market and making some money within that niche.
I’m glad to say that I believe I found my niche within the affiliate marketing lane. The only problem I seem to have now is that it’s been hard for me to find a particular niche within the affiliate marketing niche.
I mean give me a break this feels like a total enigma. I have difficulty in choosing who I want to help, which products I want to promote, which direction I want to go in, etc.
Finding a noteworthy niche can be tedious but rewarding when you figure out which path you’re going to take.
Believe me guru’s make it sound so simple, but the truth is that finding a proven niche and making money is anything but simple.
I stumbled onto the word niche a few years back when I tried my hand in the real estate market. I was trying to buy homes in foreclosure for little to no money down or for pennies on the dollar.
The guru’s would always talk about what niche to take within the business. Apparently there are multiple ways a person can go about acquiring a home through foreclosures.
Shame to say I never made 1 red cent in the real estate niche either, but I can tell your that I spent $1,000’s of dollars in acquiring things that the guru’s said I would need in order to succeed.
The Golden Ticket
I know this task is pretty hard, but if done correctly and done for along period you will begin to see results. Whether growth and knowledge is what you’re after within the niche or growing your money.
Either one can be beneficial but when you put both of them together it becomes a well oiled machine. These 2 characteristics working together in unison will let you know that you have found your niche.
A person must realize that any niche they choose they have to first have passion about the subject. Passion alone can take a person a long way when it comes to choosing a niche.
Through my research I’ve learned that a person doesn’t have to be an expert in any niche. I’ve learned that through research and content a person becomes an expert on the topic.
Once the content is readable ( meaning it makes sense) knowledgeable, informative, and truthful to the best of a person’s ability. The people will seek out and engage with the content.
I found out that most times people are just looking for some good information to help them sway their decision in either direction (to make the purchase or not).
The New 7/11
People seek out information every day 24 hours a day with the thought on possibly buying a product/service if the deal sounds good or feel right.
If people are searching for any of these things chances are there’s a niche for it and money to be made.
Now finding your niche is half the battle because the hard part ( at least for me) is finding how to market the products/services.
In other words there’s more to the puzzle once your have found your niche. Your next set of questions you have to begin to ask yourself is:
- How will you get your customers?
- What will make people want to come to your website?
- Why will they buy from your website?
In conclusion, you can carve out a niche in almost anything your mind comes up with. You have to ask yourself what is it that can guide you to believing success is possible within the niche you’ve chosen.
Two key factors to making money in a successful niche are do people ask about or seek information on the topic and are you passionate or interested enough in the topic to make it your job.
