You’ve just decided to start your venture into online marketing. The online business world is a relatively new and exciting platform, and the opportunities are endless!
Profit or Passion?
And so there lies a major problem. There is literally an endless amount of categories, or what what they call in the marketing industry, niches. Like me, you are probably torn between a niche you are passionate about, or a niche that will generate that sweet sweet dough.
What if I told you, these two modes of motivation actually overlap. Many people have the same passions and interest as you, and because you will be enthusiastic in your tone when you are giving your opinion about these products, you will attract more sales than if you were just forcing yourself to review an expensive high commission product.
Profit will follow your passion.
Although, there are niches that are the best of both worlds. These are niches that everyone is interested in, and also huge money-makers. Let’s see what they are.
I’m here to help
Here are some popular niches that will always be profitable, often called the evergreen niches.
- Health and Wellness
Generally, if it gets you paid, gets you laid, or makes you live forever, then everyone will want some. Search deep down into your soul, you will see that we are all passionate about those things in one way or another.
Health and Wellness
Whether it is diabetes prevention, or brain-enhancement pills, this niche is a multi-hundred million dollar force.
Every one of us has been on some sort of regime in trying to improve health and wellness in our own lives, so what better way to achieve greater success in this area than to take others along on the journey with a blog or review page?
Reviewing health supplements will provide a lot of value for consumers looking to enhance their results from recreational or therapeutic activities. Products can be purchased through an online supplement store like Bodybuilding.com, and from what I can see they have a great affiliate program going on. Another great thing about that site is the community there, so you may not only be turning a customer on to great products, but also to a network for their fitness endeavors.
Enough said. Well, maybe not, so I’ll elaborate. Everyone has money problems in one way or another. Every employee wants to be a millionaire, and every millionaire wants to be a billionaire. And the billionaire wants to live forever (health and wellness).
Reviews and opinions in the wealth niche can have a huge impact, as according to StatisticBrain, the US gambling industry is worth $35.5 Billion dollars. Use the Amazon affiliate marketing program to review books and audible programs on Poker. There are millions of people trying to be a better player.
Alternatively, there are programs like Rakeback, which incentivize their members to refer poker players to their site. Players on play-sites pay a small percentage back to the site called a “rake” which acts as a fee for use. Players on Rakeback that refer new players receive a percentage of that fee back. The high earners in this program consistently make 5 figures! Pretty good, considering they are getting paid to play poker.
Another popular niche in this day and age is bitcoin trading. And yes, there is also an affiliate program for that: Bitbond offers 50% back on their origination fee for all new referrals. I have a very good friend who is obsessed with this niche right now, and is easily playing in the six figure ball park. Someone like him can get tremendous value in new and innovative blog sites.
Finally, another niche that belongs in the wealth category is affiliate marketing itself. You can be an affiliate marketer for an affiliate marketing course which you are using to learn how to affiliate market. META.
I’m a little bit biased, because this community has taught me so much, but anyway, Wealthy Affiliate has a great affiliate program, and even a “bootcamp” education program to learn how to make money promoting their products.
Dating, romance, online dating, pick-up community, you name it. Simply put, we are biological beings with primordial needs that need to be fulfilled. Along with these needs comes all the complications that go with it.
A lot of couples are unhappy with their sex lives, men don’t get laid enough, women don’t get laid enough, and people want to attract their ex’s back into their lives.
This is actually a niche that I’ve delved into in my past as a consumer upon finding out about the book The Game by Neil Strauss. The pick-up community might not be something you’re into, but it is a growing industry full of information-products, and live courses to review.
We can all relate to a lot of these relationship issues, and a wholesome, informative blog can help steer us in the right direction when seeking help.
This niche is one of the most profitable ones because of the many information marketing programs out there. David Wygant has a great affiliate program, and he offers very high quality coaching for his clients from what I can see.
Now follow your passion: Hobbies and interests
Good news. That hobby that you spend all your disposable income in? Thousands, if not millions, of people are also doing the same thing. Some of them might actually be buying the high quality version of what you’re buying. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to afford them soon, once you learn to market it.
Think about how much Golf clubs cost, or camping gear. Whatever your hobby is, there usually is gear associated with it, and more likely than not, you’ll find that stuff on Amazon.
If you are very ambitious, I would recommend going into the Yacht niche. Imagine the commission on a 100-footer…
Love hunting and fishing? Cabela’s has a pretty decent affiliate program Where I’m from, It’s hard to drive a few kilometers without seeing a Cabela’s, so you won’t have trouble building credibility for a brand like that.
Whether you want to delve into a niche that is forever-profitable, or something that you take part in yourself, you can be a successful internet marketer.
The evergreen niches have a inherent attractiveness to them because of their pandering to our biological needs, but at the same time, if you are passionate about something, that passion will transfer to your content, and you will attract like-minded consumers.
