Struggling to choose a niche for your affiliate marketing business? In this video, you'll discover 4 amazing resources to find profitable affiliate marketing niches.
Why is it important to choose a niche?
When you choose a niche, what you're really doing is finding a target market that has shared pain points and desires, and then connecting them with products that can help them solve their pain or achieve their desires.
In order to do that, you have to create content — blog posts, youtube videos, podcasts, social media posts, paid ads, etc.
And in order to create effective content, your message (or copywriting) has to speak to the specific pains of that target audience.
When you go too broad, your marketing message lacks clarity and relevance. You've probably heard the saying, "When you market to everyone, you market to no one."
But when you niche down to a more specific niche, you are able to craft marketing messages that tug at the heartstrings of your target customers.
You can't go wrong with choosing a sub-niche in one of the big 3 categories:
Humans are hardwired to improve themselves in each one of these categories.
Other profitable affiliate niches are hobbies niches, like golf, pets, photography.
Does the niche have repeat customers and multiple products to sell?
I do not want to choose a niche where customers only buy once. I look for niches where customers buy more than once, and niches that have multiple products to sell, like digital products, physical products, and services.
One marketer I really look up to is Russell Brunson. In his book DotComSecrets, he teaches a concept called the value ladder.
The value ladder is designed to get new customers in the door at a low price point and them ascend them into higher priced products and services after you build trust.
The first method I recommend is taking out a piece of paper and write down 10-20 topics that you already love.
Can you build a business around one of these topics?
If not, here are a few websites you can check out to get niche ideas.
Look for the categories link at the top of each page and browse through the different topics and sub-topics to find niches.
One thing I want to vaccinate you on is that you do not need to pick the perfect niche and commit to that niche for the rest of your life
It's okay to change niches later on.
The important thing is to start building the skillsets to become a prolific affiliate marketer — like building an audience, driving traffic, copywriting, etc.
If you decide to change affiliate niches later on, then you can carry those skillsets with you and get results faster.
