When doing affiliate marketing its important to choose the right niche market to enter.
Choosing a great niche is usually the most common thing that people struggle with, so I have provided 9 examples of good affiliate niches and also the criteria that makes a good niche.
First of all here’s the list of niches that are winners for affiliate sites:
Get ex back
Survival (economic collapse and natural disaster)
Gaming (World of Warcraft etc…)
Organic living (this could be food, clothes, cleaning products, supplements)
…oh and one more – Natural health!
Criteria for a Great Affiliate Niche
Before entering a new niche as an affiliate I like to make sure it meets as many of the criteria listed below:
Does the niche lean well towards building an email list? It important to be able to collect emails on your site and over time build relationship with. If you do can this you will make more money in the niche and if something were to happen to your site in Google and you were to lose traffic, you still have an asset.
A niche leans well towards email marketing if the niche is one where further education on the niche topic is possible. Some niches don’t do this and hence won’t work for email marketing, an example would be how to cure warts!
Wide range of keywords/topics to write on
It’s important for a niche to have a lot of varied keywords that you can target. I refer to this as a ‘fragmented keyword list’. The classic example of a fragmented keyword listed is ‘dog training’.
In the dog training niche you have keywords that are based on breads – chihuahua, bulldog, poodle etc…however to add to this you also have all the training problems – biting, chewing, digging, jumping up etc…so when you combine all the breeds with the problems you get a HUGE range of keywords/topics you can write about.
In niches like this you can create a great information based website, that you can continually add content to. Overtime these sites if done well, will collect more and more traffic in Google and produce a good return for the webmaster….(continued on page 2)
