You’ll often come across the term – “niche” marketing.
Niche marketing can mean various things, but it’s often used to mean finding a profitable niche you could explore online, and making money from it. In essence therefore, “niche” marketing is just picking a particular topic, or niche, which is a money-maker.
Usually you find niches by researching keywords, although there are other ways – watching what makes the news, for example.
Let’s see how you’d find a niche to explore with affiliate marketing, in the dog topic. The topic/ niche “dogs” is very broad. It’s so broad that to get traffic from the search engines you’ll need a site of several thousand pages.
That’s too broad to be viable, but just sub-divide the topic, into:
While “dogs” is not a true niche, “dog beds” is.
You don’t need a lot of traffic to make money from your niche idea.
Check out this keyword tool.
Type “dog beds” without the quotes.
Dog beds gets around 944 searches a day (estimates for all search engines). That’s WAY more than you need. Any word which gets more than 50 searches a day and has advertisers is a money making niche.
