If you’re new to making money online, you’ve heard the term “niche marketing”, and were told to “find a niche.” Six months later, you’re more confused than ever. You don’t know where to start. Here’s how.
1. What Magazines Do You Read?
Niches are basically topics. To find a profitable niche, check which magazines you read regularly. Do you read gossip magazines? Do you read fashion magazines? As well as checking out your own reading habits, look at what your spouse and children are reading.
Magazines are always created around topics which are profitable, because magazines depend on advertisers to survive. Once you know that there are advertisers in an area, you know that money is being spent.
Next go to your favorite search engine, and type in the topics you found. Find websites and blogs on these particular topics, and read them. Do these sites carry advertising? If they do, the sites are making money.
2. Choose a Topic
Your next step is to choose a topic which you like. The more interest you have in a topic and the more knowledgeable you are about it, the easier it will be for you to make money in this area.
3. Write Down Your Opinions
Everyone has opinions. Your opinions matter, because the more passion you have for an area, and the more honest you are, the easier you’ll find it to make sales, because you’ll be real and credible to your audience.
Write down your opinions about the topic you’ve chosen. Be honest.
(If you go back to the sites which you found, you’ll see that each site has its own point of view.)
4. Find Products to Promote
Now you’ve found a topic, and you’ve decided on your own particular point of view, it’s time to find some products to promote. Go back to your search engine, and type “topic + affiliates” in the search query field.
Sign up for several affiliate programs. Now start promoting those programs.
5. Create a Niche Website
You may be tempted to spend a lot of money and time setting up a website — don’t do that. Create a site as quickly as you can by using any of the free site-creation tools which are available online
Follow this simple process and you’ll become a proficient niche marketer without tears.
