Find my what?
What is a niche anyway?
A niche is what you are passionate about. What you enjoy doing and talking about. I am sure you now have a growing list of ideas in your mind of all the things you just love and feel like you can’t live without.
Discovering your niche and turning it into your career is, I think safe to say,
Everyone’s Dream Job.
Are you still feeling overwhelmed on choosing the one niche that is right for your online business? I want to mention that if you are familiar with shopping on Amazon and know the millions of items available there, you can choose any item from there to focus on.
Amazon has an affiliate program which you can find more about here. When you are a member with Wealthy Affiliate the training includes how to become a successful Affiliate with Amazon.
Now that you have some ideas let’s take a look at how You can make MONEY with your niche.
The first step is narrowing your niche. You do this because it makes what you have to say a voice of authority which will strengthen your audience.
A few Examples of how to narrow your niche
- Photography =
- Cannon cameras
- Gardening =
- Lawn care
- Perennial flower care
- Growing your own food
- Education =
- Teach your toddler to read
- Making math fun
- Writing essays
- Fashion =
- Dress for success
- Teen athletic wear
Don’t be scared that you will limit your audience there is more than a billion people using the internet looking to find authoritative content. You want to be the authority they find. If your information is too broad your content will feel like it didn’t have a lot of thought that went into it.
When You Are the Go To Authority of Your Niche
You can have Unlimited Success!
Now that you have narrowed your niche the next step is to research how others look for the information they want to know about your niche.
Your Niche is their Niche!
When you know how they are searching you will know how to get traffic to your website.
TRAFFIC = $ MONEY $$
So how do you do the research?
We will start with Google. Every time you search the internet with Google or any other search engine you will see a drop down of suggestions that changes as you type. Those suggestions are how others are frequently searching for the same or similar information.
If you prefer Yahoo or Bing that is okay too they will give you similar results for what we are doing to begin our research.
Play around with this by re-wording and re-phrasing questions about your niche.
- What is the best camera for action photos?
- Are Fujifilm cameras any good?
- How to use my Fujifilm XT10
- How many megapixels should a camera have?
By doing this you are getting into the head of your audience and it will Give You the Power to direct them to you and your website. You will also discover the many angles and options you will have when discussing your niche giving you endless possibilities for future growth.
