Top 10 Niche Markets That You Can Actually Succeed With.

I’m going to show you the “top” 10 niche markets I have found and through online marketing, how to make a wonderful online business out of it.

I am continuing a “promise” I had made several months ago where I talked about helping people out who are stuck on niches but because I haven’t really kept up with it, this article is going to compensate for it and basically keep the promise going until the end of 2016. And I’ve updated it today to adjust to 2019.

top 10 niche markets

There are 2 important rules about this “top 10” list:

First, I recommend you only take one or more of the niche markets I will reveal to you if:

  • You know about the niche, like or love it and if you don’t, here’s how you can find them.
  • If you are currently not involved with another niche site that you like and if you hate the one you’re doing, only switch to one of these for the above point.
  • If none of the 10 niches on this list interest you, leave me a comment below. And I also added an add on list below (through a link) which will show you at least 100 more ideas! 

And second, whether you find a niche topic here you like or don’t, regardless, once you choose one eventually, I’m going to give you 2 options for monetizing them:

  • First if you’re somewhat experienced with online business, you can go ahead and apply these 2 steps I use to make money of any topic. Just choose one of the topics you’ll discover and use the steps. 
  • And if you’re completely new, skip that tutorial and do this:

Alright I get it, now give me the top 10!

Hang on a moment, I want to spoil something…

It’s that this list is not something you would consider to be worthy of being in the top 10. But you will only think that if you’re only focusing on the money and have never done online marketing.

Here’s the thing about these topics…

I’m not here to give you obvious information on markets you already know are popular. I’ve been through many courses and people telling me to go into weight loss, dating, fitness and other extremely general topics that frankly speaking suck to market in because broad topics like those get beginners and even experts nowhere!

I can tell you to make an online business focused on general subjects, but guess what? You’re not going to make it in that if you don’t know how to narrow down the topic and promote correctly (Hint: It’s the laser niche topics that truly count!).

I can give you 100 examples of that, but they will all fail you. And notice, part of my title did say it’s topics you can SUCCEED at. So it’s going to be EXACT topics that I’m going to show you. But…

Look past the general numbers and you’ll see that…

All these ideas can be turned into 6 figure websites (I can say this as someone who has accomplished that as an affiliate marketer):

If you take something general like weight loss, where there’s likely around 50-100 million users browsing for it online every month and compare it to any of the 10 topics I’ll show you, you’re going to see the traffic numbers are MUCH lower, a fraction lower even.

But look beyond just those numbers and understand that these are REAL niches with defined audiences and know that with the products you can promote to them, the prices and affiliate commissions you can earn and services you can sell can make you FAR more money.

So while the people who are still looking away (you’re making a BIG mistake…) and still focused what I like to call “surface topics” (the general ones) they shouldn’t be targeting, you’re going to make a lot of money targeting the RIGHT ones which those same surface topic chasers would consider to be a wasted effort!

Alright so let me reveal these subjects (it took me about 5 minutes to come up with them):

Wow, 5 minutes to come up with 10 ideas that can all make 6 figure businesses!? Yep, that’s what a my experience in online business will do for you.

Now I’ve had posts like these go into specific niches where I deconstructed them and showed you how to make money of them, but if I do that for every single one on this article, this post is going to be as long as book so again, do one of those 2 tutorials above if you want to really get going with these subjects. 

What I will do is give you basic information on each subject such as:

  • A description of the niche and the general audience that is interested in it.
  • Keyword statistics that will show you the traffic potential.
  • Affiliate opportunities and other monetizing ideas. 

1) Emergency supplies: 

emergency preparation

Description: People buy these things usually after a natural disaster hits. Seriously, use your imagination and if you are one of these people or have bad experiences where one of these problems hit and you were stuck in line trying to get the essential things to keep your home/family safe, you’re probably perfectly suited to make an online business from it. This is an evergreen niche.

There are also times where depending on the timing, this topic can easily become a hungry niche, such as if a disaster is on the way or if it has happened, people will be flocking to get supplies ASAP and when stores will have big lines or empty shelves, the internet will be where hungry audiences go to get those necessities. 

How do you do it? Remember that 5 step tutorial to making money online? Well you already have step 1 down if you choose this to be your niche topic.

Keyword statistics: Let’s look at some facts about this niche and by facts, I mean keywords:

What I did was I looked up different topics within this subject. We’re talking:

Information on actual disasters that strike every year (Hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, ect…).

I also looked at the keywords for EACH of those things and that people (surprise, surprise!) actually look up ways to prepare for them! 

What sort of things do they look for? Power generators, boards, long lasting food reserves, ect…seriously if you know this niche, you can list about 100 different things people can buy. 

Then take those different topics, put them in a keyword tool and you’re going to find some very, very interesting facts. Let’s take power generators as an example…


You’re looking at over 8,000 searches monthly for JUST power generators. Now if you actually started reviewing the different models there are, they also have their own keyword stats which adds to this 8,000 number and you would probably hit about 50,000 in traffic potential and that’s just for ONE sub topic of this niche.

Combine that with the other things people NEED if they’re interested in this niche? Man, you’ve got at least a million possible visitors and hundreds of topics you can already write on. 

Any affiliate opportunities? OH. YES. Let’s just do the power generator one. Thinking of promoting them on Amazon? You should…

emergency supplies niche

With just this one promotional opportunity, you are looking at commissions that can make you from several dollars to $100+. 

Now that’s just for power generators, in a niche that has WAY more selling opportunity than just that.

So hypothetically (and realistically…), if you add in the potentially million+ niche audience, the products you can sell (knowledgeable people on this topic will know ALL the things they can promote) and the commissions (plus these other monetizing ideas), conservatively, there’s no reason why this site can’t cross 6 figures.


Now as I said before, I don’t want to get into TOO many details on each of these because it’s just going to make this article WAY too long but as I said before, use this post where I fully dissected one big niche and just use it to brainstorm one or more the topics you’ll read about here and then again, use one of those 2 major tutorials I told you about…

2) Self defense/martial arts:

self defense

Description: One of the most in demand and evergreen markets you will find is self defense and people wanting to study martial arts. If you are someone who has trained in it, been a fighter, competed or even better have been a champion, you can also make a site on this and share tips. 

Keyword stats: I’m just going to go with a general topic:


10,000+ audiences looking at this and it’s only for self defense. 

Hang on Vitaliy! I have a keen eye and I noticed something…

First, it appears the competition is too high! Self defense has over 500 QSR (for those of you who don’t know, QSR is competition). And frankly, the power generator one also had a lot of them too! 

You are correct, but ever single term I’ve listed is SUPER basic. I’m not interested, at least right now in going in too deep and finding every single none competitive term. All I’m doing for you guys is showing you basic stats. If you want to find the low competition terms, all you have to do is this:

Add words to self defense like: For men, women or target the different arts there are, how to some special moves, ect… and I promise you, you’re going to find that all those BIG competition numbers drop to the point that they are so low that landing on that first page is no problem!

Don’t believe me? Well ok, I’ll do this once, but after this, on the other examples, I’m going to be lazy about the research and you’re going to have to go that far:


Oh look, by just adding a few more definitive words to our niche keywords, we have found SO many more low competition ones! That’s all you have to do with your options as well.

Ok, you got me there Vitaliy, but I noticed a few terms that may not apply to my site?

Of course you’re going to find keywords that will never work for you. You may have also noticed some terms have the world “classes, courses” and things which require that you promote a physical business. Well why not do that?

You can easily do business with some local martial arts schools and promote them. And if you own one, well that’s even better because you can get more clients…

Anyway, back to the stats. I’m going to estimate another million potential visitors a month for this niche.

Affiliate opportunities: Well besides you promoting a business that is yours or someone else’s, supplies for martial arts will absolutely work, personal courses you can make yourself and promote as videos (look up martial arts videos on YouTube and see how many views they get). Start a channel on it!

And also, I have an updated YouTube tutorial where I advise reviewing popular products. In this niche case, make videos showing self defense moves instead. It’ll still get a lot of views.

Is it safe to say this kind of site can cross 7 figures, not 6?

3) The survival niche.

survival alone

Note: From here on in, you already know how I search the stats for these things and I don’t think I need to provide more proof of profit potential because you can already find this yourself. 

Description: This topic generally deals with people who love the idea of surviving (generally outside civilization). People want to know how to make their own food, how to hunt, how to make fires, and there is also another funny group of people that are preparing for the…zombie apocalypse.

Just another niche tie in you can add to this site or do separately (that’s actually a whole other idea, but here, they are related so they can be used in one site).

Keyword stats: Again, you have an easily 100,000+ a month niche audience for a site like this. Most survival terms get several thousand searches monthly (but again, look beyond just that term, look at ALL the terms and things you can sell, add them up to get a more proper estimate).

Affiliate opportunities: Ok, so we have a situation here where people aren’t really interested in buying products as much as they interested in knowing how to live WITHOUT them, so how do you profit?

Well it’s not that hard, you can actually sell camping supplies to these people, tools to build fires, backpacks and other things people will pretty much always carry. You can also sell lessons where you teach people how to survive and charge for that. I do know of people who charge for classes in this subject and price them at $500+ per person…

4) Hiking trail ideas:

hiking trail decisions

Description: There’s MILLIONS of people who love hiking, want to know where they can go to get the best experiences and for money making purposes, want to know accessories to make their hikes more worthwhire (Hint, hint affiliates!). If you enjoy traveling and hiking, document your travels on a website and recommend them to your audience while also sharing the supplies you use when you go on them. 

Keyword stats: Millions upon millions of people love hiking. You can literally dissect EACH state, provide, country and it’s famous areas where people can go hiking. Here is an example:


The keyword tool Jaaxy was also smart enough to provide specific areas where people look for these trails. Imagine traveling to those places and recording that, then blogging about it and/or making a video? And seriously, the term: Hiking trails in (Add ANY area) is guaranteed to get results and this can offer you endless amounts of blog ideas and notice how many of those examples above are in the GREEN competition area.

You can also personally USE the money you make on your site to travel to those places to better inform your audience of whether or not they are worth it. Eventually an online business should provide the funds you need to try new products and things that deal with what you’re selling so you can EXPAND the business.

5) Camping sites. 

camping near river

Description: Like with hiking, there’s also millions of people who enjoy camping. Basically take the same example of hiking and just replace it with camping, find actual landmarks people travel to and use that to generate content.

Keyword stats: 100K + searches in my estimate and the bottom example is just a portion of the potential…notice how there’s ALSO regions being shown to have searches!


Affiliate opportunities: Sell tents, camping supplies, HIKING supplies too (a tie in to the previous idea) things like cameras and outdoor equipment for cooking (kind of like the stuff in the survival niche!).

Oh and that updated YouTube idea I linked above? It’s perfect for this niche too. Again, here is the link. You can literally just review camping supplies and link your videos to Amazon that sell those camping supplies.

6) Taking care of a specific pet.

exotic pet

Description: Have a specific breed of a dog, turtle, cat, lizard, ect…? Well guess what, so do plenty of other people and you can BET that there are on Google looking at ways to better improve the health and lifestyle of those pets. 

Keyword stats: Depending on the type of pet it is (some are very popular), for example, Labrador retriever dogs, you can find probably about 100,000 people who own these specific pets. Let’s do the Labrador retriever one:


Now you can repeat this type of search for any specific pet. Usually you can go a bit broader on non-common pet types. For example, if you own turtles, while there are different kinds, I’d make a site on general turtle health and tips, whereas with dogs, you’re better off going with a specific breed unless you want to target a specific age group they are in (a site on taking care of puppies would work).

Affiliate opportunities: Pet clothes, accessories, health advice/consultations if you’re an expert on how to make their life better, ect…

7) Aquariums and scenic environment setups for exotic pets.


Description: There are groups of people who love making a beautiful environments in their backyards for pets. Maybe it’s some kind of aquarium that instead of being a glass one is a bunch of rocks with a waterfall, grass, and other beautiful set ups that decorate the backyard, maybe it is the actual aquarium but it has many beautiful environments set up in their to recreate what a real one would look like.

You will often see these in pet stores. I often find these types of things in big sushi restaurants. They generally have fish and turtles swimming there.

Keyword stats and affiliate opportunities: Now this is one where you generally won’t find huge masses. I would estimate it’s probably less than 100,000 people but what you can target here is 2 things: an aquarium for a specific pet and/or supplies they sell separately FOR the aquarium so you can customize how it looks. 

These things sell from $50-$1,000+. 

Note: This is a niche topic I included in another long list I did (see this list of 100 niches that I made).

8) Scuba diving gear.

scuba diving topic

Description: If you enjoy diving and have tried scuba diving and know about it, make this type of site right away. You have incredible opportunities and HIGH priced affiliate items you can sell (high ticket).

Keyword stats: Man, this is huge, you’re looking at a combination of accessories for scuba diving, LOCATIONS of where people can do it, how to’s on the subject and many more variations. In total, several 100 keyword ideas can easily be written about on this subject alone and in total, at least 100,000 visitors can hit your site monthly. Here’s a FRACTION of the keyword stats potential:


Affiliate opportunities: You can sell lessons, accessories and just like in the hiking/camping niche, document places people can go diving, ect…

9) A niche on pool management (The water one, not billiards).

cleaning the pool

Description: Pools are very expensive add on pieces of property people add and taking care of them is also an expensive feat if people don’t know what to do. Fortunately, if you have a pool or have cleaned/repaired/took care of them, this type of niche site will definitely suite you.

Keyword stats and affiliate opportunities: I would say in total, also around 100k people. You have audiences all over the United States for example which live in the suburbs and/or own their own pools who actively hire people to maintain them.

But this can cost a lot of money and as an affiliate, you can sell your services to help them save it. You can promote accessories people can use to maintain their own pool rather than wasting money on hiring someone. 

10) Hedging finances: 

protecting finances

Description: This is a group that is somewhat similar to the emergency crowd, but more so on the financial area where they want to know where and how to invest their money from inflation and where to make good investments.

Keyword states and affiliate opportunities: If you’re someone who makes smart investments to protect finances, a wonderful site you can make is where you recommend certain stocks, how to store money, where to preserve it (maybe you recommend things like gold and silver or buying real estate for certain budgets). You can even handle people’s finances if they see that your advice is truly making and protecting investments.

This is a never ending topic you can write about because you can easily take ideas from popular news stations like CNBC and document current events and how they can effect the economy and other aspects of finance for people. 

Affiliate wise, I would recommend you offering consultations or if you’re not an expert finding someone whose advice has saved you money and to promote them for a fee.

How about 100 more niche ideas? Here you go:

Again, here is a post on 100 niches. You’ll see some repeats from this list here, but a majority will be completely new and some are mind blowing niche markets!

My final thoughts: 

This was not an easy list and certainly the topics here were not BROAD (some were even hungry!), but I hope I was able to show you the profit you can make by these seemingly less popular niches than most of the common names surface topic people keep latching onto!

Got questions or thoughts on the topic I listed? Let me hear em 🙂


149 thoughts on “Top 10 Niche Markets That You Can Actually Succeed With.”

  1. It is always a pleasure reading your posts. I found a ton of benefits from this read. It actually exposed some niches that I have never really thought about. Particularly the survival niche. 

     And I have come across some misguided criticisms of WA on the web and it baffles me how misguided people can choose to be. Yes WA is not a perfect place but to call it a scam or MLM platform is totally out of place. And on whether its members are succeeding the answer is yes, for those who take consistent action.

    • Yes those same people ctiticize me too, but unfortunately for them, I have factual arguments which usually make them disappear or look foolish and it’s not like I want to do that, they just think labeling something they know nothing about such horrible things makes them look good. 

  2. Wow you really done some great work here with your website! There are so many people looking for niches and you have provided some excellent examples. What am I saying? You have over 100 here! I’ll definitely be coming back here to check out more topics that you have posted. 

    Keep up the great work you’re really helping out a lot of people!

    – Ryan

  3. I shared the same opinion about the martial arts niche too – or sports of any kind – but there were some critics who disagreed when I published a blog about the topic. In their opinion, most of these skills are best learned through face-to-face settings and teaching online wouldn’t be as effective, even if it’s possible. 

    Yet there are so many experienced coaches out there. Imagine everyone sharing their expertise and promoting gear/products that are useful for the students, they can surely offer more value than any type of eCommerce stores. 

    Based on my research, the keyword opportunities for this niche are super rich. I wondered why these coaches haven’t thought about tapping into the online market before. 

    • Hi Cathy, those critics you mentioned do have a point, but what they don’t understand is that there’s so much traffic on Google and social media looking for videos on these subjects (which is why you probably saw so many keywords). 

      I personally follow a bunch of trainers and fighters on Instagram and they post videos regularly. Being that I also train, I take a lot of value from these short videos and include them in my training, and even use them with my clients. 

      These same people who also post these videos also get a lot of sponsorship’s and more business to their schools from marketing this way. 

      I am certain if you made that point to the same critics, they would change their mind. If not, they aren’t meant to be marketers.

  4. I like the financing niche on your list. I am learning about the stock markets now and thinking of starting my website in this niche. You said to provide a consultation service. It’s a good idea but I might wanna do it later in my journey. 

    Are their also quality affiliate programs for this niche? And how can I find it?

    • In this case, you may want to just Google for stuff relating to stock market consultations and affiliate programs. I did and what I found was a program called CEX.IO. Now I’m sure there’s more, but you should find multiple ones, then read the reviews on the affiliate programs to see which one is most legit. 

      Ideally, in this particular niche, offering consultations yourself would be the easiest way to go, but it will only happen when you become good at it so continue to study the stock market, and jump into it personally so you can then gain a better understanding of trading, stock betting and all that.

  5. I would be interested in looking into the self-defense area, I do have some experience in it but not enough to choose it as a niche. I think this is wonderful information, on how to look at the competition too, in any niche that you choose. I have an interest but it’s not so marketable. But I now have a better idea now of how to find out what exactly to look for when choosing your niche.

    • Good stuff Andy, I’m glad that despite having a few options for niches, you still decided not to opt for them because you are not confident enough to build off this. Typically people who know a little bit of info on a topic, just dive into making their site and stop shortly after because they run out of ideas.

      One option you can consider to actually push ahead with your existing ideas is to start the site, learn the info as you go to build up your knowledge of it and add to the site as you learn more about it in real life. This really helps if you have a major passion for your niche, but are worried you won’t produce enough content in it.

  6. Wow, thank you ever so much, Vitaliy, for the very sound advice. I can only vouch for the niche related to specific pets or breeds. My main website – the one that I’m still monetizing the most from – is about my dog breed, and it does exactly what you suggest it should do: it attracts the attention of dog lovers of that breed, because it is not general. So, once again, thank you for making the whole niche choice process much more worry-free for me.

  7. The niches that I found interesting were martial arts, emergency supplies and survival. There are more than 1 billion people out there, so no matter what niche you choose, there will always be potential traffic to your website! 

    People tend to create websites focusing on WHAT to sell for profits. But a few focus on building a BRAND, a website about something you really love. That’s why you see so many websites full of affiliate links and posts that only talk about PRODUCTS, not topics. Thanks for this post!

  8. I’ve found what I’ve been searching for. This is an amazing article because it shows you the niches you could get right into and build an amazing online business from. Before reading this, I never Knew camping sites and emergency supplies were great niches with lots of traffic. 

    I also like the fact that you display the keywords and traffic to let one know how many keywords they can use on their websites to get it Google ranked as quickly as possible on the first page. Once again thanks so much for sharing. Was very helpful and informative indeed

  9. Hi Vitaliy

    Thank you for clarifying the niche market data stats. I’m thinking about the anti-aging products niche. Are there specific formulas necessary to be successful in this niche? I’m really interested in this market and should do a keyword search, yes?

    • Great question and this is indeed a hungry niche market. Here’s how I would go about it:

      1) Target the specific group (niche) best suited for this. I’d go with women.
      2) Yes target keywords, target keywords such as anti aging tips for women and other things that attract that specific group to the site.
      3) Find best selling anti aging products on Amazon, find their keyword data and review them.

      That’s literally the blueprint on how I would market in this niche. It’s a competitive one, but you’ve got so much potential with what you can create content on that it won’t be that difficult to get good amounts of traffic from it.

  10. Do you prefer these niches primarily because it is not as competitive as a make money online sort of niche?

    Also, wouldn’t the martial arts and self defense niche be a little bit broad? Can you not break it up into a specific martial art or self defense art? Or would doing so cause it to be less profitable because the niche is too focused and their is not enough of an audience?

    • Good questions Jessie, most of these niche markets are NOT as competition as the make money online niche, and that one happens to be pretty broad because there’s so many ways to do it, so the fact that these topics are more specific, makes them less competitive.

      Regarding the martial arts and self defense niche, the answer is yes and no. I should have been more specific with it because I used both terms, but what I actually meant was focusing on self defense, as it implies street defense, and arts which deal with that, which is itself a niche.

  11. These are some awesome niches that you gave us. I would of never thought that the survival or emergency supplies one could be such a good niche, but after reading your post it does make a lot more sense. When you’re picking a niche to pursue, what’s the average amount of traffic you want the search term to be getting?

    • Well I don’t really have a quota for that Michael, all I do is examine hot niche markets and those always carry a large audience, every time. I think about that first, and then I worry about the keywords in the niche and that usually adds up to 1,000’s or more in traffic.

  12. Thank you for these great tips. I agree that it’s important to love the niche that you pick. It can be really hard to write articles day… after day….after day…if you don’t actually like your topic. You can also get questions from website visitors and if you don’t know the answer, this can be really annoying for everyone. I like how a lot of these niches have physical products that you can recommend. I find that people are often more willing to purchase physical items rather than services because they know that if the product is faulty they can return it. I was just wondering if you prefer recommending products or services best?

    • Hi Glenys, that ultimately depends on the niche itself and what the audience is looking for. There’s plenty of niche topics where services are better to be offered than physical products.

      For example: 

      Doing consultations on various topics such as business, law, therapy, dating. With these topics, the audience member seeks value from speaking or consulting with someone who is experienced in whatever niche topic it’s in. Physical products here may not help as much, but speaking to someone who is a professional and getting their expertise on the subject holds way more value. There’s a reason why consultants in popular fields get paid a lot.

      I’d even say that some of the niches on the above list would also benefit from adding services to them. For example, the survival niche topic. One could make a site, sell physical products, sure, but also offer a free eBook or service with tips as bonuses for people who buy products from the site. 

      So basically it can work both ways. As you become more experienced with the niche and find more ways to add value, you may very well find that adding services or free tips that act as services benefits your online business.

  13. You hit on some good niche’s in this article. It was very helpful. I would have never thought that the survival niche would be so popular. I like camping too, maybe I’ll try that one. Could you combine camping, survival, hiking, into one niche or would they all be separate niches?

    • It comes down to the target audience Jonathan. If you can tie in these 3 topics you listed and apply them to the niche audience then yes. For example, if my niche audience is into survival, I’d probably target survival in the wilderness and then pitch them camping products and hiking gear connecting those topics to HOW it would help them survive. 

      The point is that you need to let the niche audience (which is the bulls eye in all this) know how your products would help them. Don’t think about the product, think about how the product can help the target audience and then tell them about it.

  14. I have just recently started using Jaxxy myself and I can already see the potential in it, one of the better keyword search tools I have run across. Right now I am in a niche that I am passionate about: rewiring your thoughts for positive life transformations. Not sure how lucrative it will be if at all.

    I have thought about the hiking niche and I could even use my personal viewpoints. I try to hike somewhere at least once a week in my own state and the surrounding states within a day’s drive. So that might be something I can build on in the future. I have definitely bookmarked your site for further reading.

    • The hiking niche is great considering the passionate audience within it and the things you can sell them. As for the first one you mentioned, I would target something like boosting confidence, stopping stress/anxiety, those sorts of things and then tying that into the positive life transformation you mentioned.

  15. This is a seriously comprehensive post! I’m actually in a couple of the niches on your list already and I can verify that they are good ones. Survival, in particular. Which keyword tool are you using? It didn’t look like Jaaxy, which is what I’ve been using so far. Always good to keep the options open!

  16. The generators are most interesting because they remind me that people buy quickly when the need is urgent. But, since people tend to buy “wants” more than “needs” (which I think is still true), I feel OK with acoustic and electric guitars as my niche. My focus at the start is on the acoustic ones, as historically electric guitar sales have slowed.

    My site isn’t yet ranked though after about a month of having purchased my domain. I’ve increased blog lengths with relevant and substantial information; all topics are based on narrowed down Jaaxy keyword phrases; been adding internal/external links; ensuring exposure in the social network realm, etc. Any advise, please?

    • Hi Terri, the site being one month old is actually very young. The question I’d ask is how many articles have you put up since you started this guitar site? 

      Also, did you install Google analytics to it? If you have content on the page and it’s been a month, there has to be some sort of indexing and ranking going on, and Google analytics will tell you this.

      Otherwise, what I would recommend is continuing everything you mentioned already doing.

  17. Thanks for sharing these great niche ideas. Truth is, however, that I cannot relate to any of those. My niche is PC hardware and games and while there is huge potential, I have so many competitors who have been in the field for more than two decades, that even great content based on low-competition keywords will not rank me in Google. Do you have any tips on how I can improve that? Maybe I have chosen the wrong niche, although I am really passionate about it and know what I am writing about.

    • Hi John, you are incorrect in believing there is too much competition. You will find this exact same scenario in any niche market as you are currently seeing in the one you’re looking to build a site on (computer games & hardware). 

      And also, writing keyword based content WILL get you ranked, trust me on that, the important thing is that you actually do it and you will see over a period of time that you’re going to be outranking your competitors.

      Here’s an article where you will see just how to post basically endless amounts of content to beat your competitors.

      The other thing that can work too is using paid ads such as on Bing to send the traffic to specific reviews of gaming gear for computers that you’re reviewing, but I would only that when you have a good amount of organic traffic coming in from Google and again, this all points back to you having to write content to get there.

  18. Hi Vitaliy!

    Thank you very much for this articles and ideas. Funny that I thought about creating a website about dogs in general, but the next step e.g. creating a website about a specific pet is something I would have never have thought of for some reason. But it makes totally sense since it is much more narrowed down.

    I recently also set up a website about affiliate marketing. However, the field is super broad. I am currently trying to find a niche within affiliate marketing, but right now I am a bit stuck there. You mentioned you came up with these ideas within 5 minutes, do you have any tips how to find niche markets within affiliate marketing?



    • Hi Mia, affiliate marketing is itself a niche, so you can go ahead with the site idea you have in this. Talk about topics related to making money online and working though home and tie it to affiliate marketing. 

  19. These niches are on a rise in Google trends. That is why most people that will benefit from it will be the ones that are able to catch the trend early on. Everyone will try to sell the same stuff so you need to provide a better service so you can get your piece of the pie.

    The fun fact is that at the rate the number of online users is increasing there will be a place for everyone and the most hardworking ones will be rewarded.

    • Yeah I agree, although despite, for instance these 10 markets being on the rise, they are still competitive, YET within each niche are a plethora of low competition keywords users can find, leverage and put on their site. And you are right, there is tremendous potential, not just with these 10 markets, but with internet marketing in general.

  20. Hi Vitaliy, how are you man?

    As you may remember I have a boxing site which focuses on boxing gear like boxing gloves. I’m thinking of expanding the site with MMA gear like gloves etc… I actually started expanding it before but stopped writing. I focused only on boxing gear for 2 months.

    However, do you think is it a good idea to expand my site with different MMA gear? For example, I already have writings like boxing gloves vs. MMA gloves. I basically want to do a martial arts gear guide site. In that way, I think that I will also have dropshipping opportunities in the future since there is a myriad of different products.

    • Hi Furkan, there are a lot of open ended ways you can expand the website, but is the current one you have making you sales? This is the most important question I have since if it’s not, you should continue to focus on boxing gear and perhaps discussing boxing topics on your site to help expand the site’s rankings and grow your traffic.

      I don’t know if your focus is more on blogging or eCommerce, but I would mix the 2 to help the site expand using the tip I just gave. Regarding expanding into other art/gear like MMA, you can do that, but I would only focus on that when you’ve exhausted the content ideas you have for the main niche topic which is boxing.

      • Yes, this is the site I make consistent sales with and have made $100 dollars per month for 10 months or so. Mostly it consists of boxing gear reviews, how to use them, taking care of them, etc… My focus is on blogging and I just do regular affiliate marketing (just linking to Amazon).

        I understand when I will finish ideas I can go onto MMA but there are still a lot of keywords so I will continue writing about boxing :). Thank you man and have a good day.

        • I think it’s great that you’re seeing consistent results, now it’s time to scale (grow) the site. There’s a number of ways you can do this:

          1) Do what you’re already doing in adding more content to the site via boxing articles. Do more product reviews on gloves and other gear (mitts, wraps, ect…).

          2) Consider starting PPC campaigns on the most popular products you’re reviewing. So if there is say a boxing glove that gets a lot of searches, write an ad about the glove, link it to review and see if this increases results.

          3) Consider collecting an email list and giving people boxing tips, you can also cross promote the existing gear you’re already selling to this list in the future.

          • Yeah, I am doing your first tip for months : ) Exactly I will do it more, I can find some review keywords which get at least 40 searches on a keyword tool and write it. Man when I get more visitors, I will definitely start collecting e-mails and learn PPC when my site becomes an authority. Again thanks for the answers man and have a good day.

          • No problem Furkan, let me know how this all works out and I’m glad these tips are working and growing your site.

  21. Hi Vitaliy! I was very curious about the list. I thought I would have found my niche inside this post, or something else that would have captured my interest but it hasn’t gone this way. 

    My niche is about the perfect balance between the mind and body. I’m still trying to understand which way to narrow it down to succeed. Do you have any suggestions?


    • Hi Marta, the thing is that there are many different ways to describe your topic, thus making it broad. To narrow it down, I would explore these types of niches: reducing stress, how to concentrate, how to get rid of headaches, how to have a healthy brain.

      These are niche topics all pertaining to mind and body being aligned. I would pick one of those.

  22. This was a very informative article with a lot of good niche ideas. I didn’t think about none of them but I after I get my 2 websites bringing in good revenue I would like to make a 3rd site to try something different. I have not made a sale yet and I’m not sure what to do different but I keep trying, thanks for the niche ideas.

    • Hi Justin, based on what you’re saying, I believe you’re focusing too much on having multiple sites rather than putting the attention on one. And in that regard, with the 2 existing niche sites you have, what are their topics? You need to identify this and create niche content on one or both of them and let them make money this way. Too often I run into people who try and spread themselves thin in doing too many niches sites at once and this actually leads to failure.

  23. Hi Vitaliy,

    Wow, wish I’d had this list when I first started my website. There are a few there that interest me.

    For now, I have a website that is very slowly building traffic and it has taken a lot of work to get there. I think my niche is a bit too broad. The great idea that you’ve given me is to use Jaaxy to narrow down my niche with individual blog posts and keywords with less competition. Thanks for the great article.


    • What is this broad niche you went with Ed? I could help you narrow it down to use with Jaaxy so you make better content moving forward.

  24. Thanks for the great list Vitaliy! I have to agree that any of these top 10 niches could easily be turned into a six-figure website. Over the years, I’ve found that any niche can make money so long as you’re passionate about the topic.

    The important thing in my opinion is to always try and provide your audience with consistent content that is valuable and helps them to accomplish a task or goal.

    With that said, do you recommend going into niches that offer both physical goods as well as Digital Products? Would you recommend creating a course or digital product if the niche doesn’t offer an existing one?

    Just trying to think a little outside of the box on this one and again thank you so much for the list of topics. It’s actually really funny, but two of the niches on the list are ones that I had looked into personally in the past and actually purchased a domain for one of them.

    • The niche is the most important choice Tony, what you promote on it is way below in terms of importance, so whether it be a digital good, a physical one or both, I honestly wouldn’t care much about it. Certainly digital goods have an advantage over physical ones in terms of delivery time and ease of purchase, but physical goods have that “tangible” value still. 

      You can always test to see which product on your niche site sells better, but obviously try to pick out one that pays the most and makes the customers happiest. 

      Now regarding the other question you have, I assume the context of the question involves you having a niche site but not being able to find any good product to sell for it and/or one that doesn’t pay enough correct? If this is the case, then by all means, make your own, make an eBook, make a digital good, something that fills in that market value and sells it at a price you would be happy with and the customer would be happy to buy.

      You can also make it a free thing, give it away if people sign up to an email list, then do email blasts to products in mass to that list.
