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 decade plus 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: 

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.

How do you do it? Remember that 5 step tutorial? 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…

pge

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…

ams

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.

Note: 

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:

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:

sd1

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:

sd2

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.

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:

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:

sd3

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. 

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!

sd4

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.

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:

sd5

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+. 

#8: Scuba diving gear.

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:

sd6

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).

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: 

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 50 more niche ideas? Here you go:

I wrote a post here and included 50 awesome niche ideas you can use. 

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 🙂

Update: 100 more profitable niches.

I have personally wrote an article covering at least 100 more niches you can profit from. If you’d like to see this list, here you go! Believe me, most of these ideas aren’t things you’d imagine that would be niches (you’ll see).

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

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

    Best,

    Mia.

    • 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. 

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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?

    Thanks

    • 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

    Ed

    • 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.

  23. 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. 

  24. What an interesting read! I really liked how you flushed out all of your niche ideas using the keyword search tool. As someone just starting out in the affiliate marketing world I really appreciate reading your insights. My site is in the health and fitness niche. I found your PPC link very helpful as I am very new to the whole website building experience. I have been working hard on the social engagement side, but can see that PPC needs to be my next step.

  25. Thanks for yet another great post! I would never have thought of these niche ideas by myself and some of them are actually starting to appeal to me, because I have experience in those fields. Specifically with pets and scuba gear. Thanks so much for these great idea. Now I can’t wait to narrow them down further to really become a niche.

  26. Hi Vitaliy,

    Thank you for posting such a detailed breakdown of how to find a niche to promote online.

    Although I find quite a few of the niche topics interesting (hiking camping, self-defence, emergency supplies), I’m not really enough of an expert in them.

    I really liked the thought of showing people big ticket items on Amazon such as those power generators.

    The big takeaway for me is that you can drill down into a broad niche and find some lucrative sub-niches.

    Thanks,

    David Hurley

    • That’s how many niches are found David, but you should combine that brainstorming idea with passions you have, you are bound to find plenty of niche options then.

  27. I thoroughly enjoy reading your website. It was filled with well-thought out ideas on niches that can be chosen to make money with.

    The niche I like the best was the pet niche. People love talking about their pets, and they need so much to care for them.

    I have an 11 year old dog and he has such a problem with sensitive skin. He is allergic to flea saliva, so we try to keep him up to date on the flea treatments.

    The camping niche interests me as well because there is so much stuff that you need to take on a camping trip. You can do product reviews with Amazon affiliate links.

    With Christmas coming up, I want to get started on those reviews in my niche.

    • Hi Debra, doing a niche for your particular dog breed would certainly lead to good traffic, and a camping niche site is also good, although I would not try to “flood” it with product reviews, talk a lot about camping topics as well as this will help your audience not feel that they are just being sold something.

  28. Hi, Vitaliy. Thanks for another great post. There are some great niche ideas there. I like the self defense and the survival niches you mentioned, especially in these time of big hurricanes, wild fires, earthquakes, and whatever else is on the way. People need to know how to be prepared.

    There is a lot of crime in the world too, so self defense is something people need to know. Do you think people will wake up soon and get themselves ready for the big bad world?

    • When you say people, I assume you are talking about the general populace. I will say no, this “wake up” term that’s used is very subjective, my whole thing is, target the niche audience that already is interested in my subject and inform/sell to them. 

      There’s already plenty of people who want to know about the niches you picked out of the list above, so if you do a site on that, write the content and the people who know and want to do something in regards to it will come to the page.

  29. Hello,

    I loved this post. As a new blogger coming up with a niche boggled my mind. I decided I’d have a website of various niches so I didn’t hone down to one specific area. This way I could write about whatever came to me at the time. Would you please give me your thoughts on that? Is it a good or bad idea? I am new to all this, but am excited about learning and becoming successful with it. Thank you again for all the information you provide. I am a fan of your website.

    • Hi Liz, thank you for being a fan of the page. About your question, I would say in most cases it is a mistake to chase different niche topics on one site. A lot of people when starting out have the same issue in picking the “right” niche for them and end up doing what you are planning to do.

      The thing is, a key factor in success with niche sites is being an authority in 1 particular niche. Now the mistake people make when they read that type of statement is they think it’s too “limiting”, when in fact, the opposite is true.

      Take ANY of the 10 topics above for example and consider that if you review products and topics within each of those niches, you will have potentially hundreds of ideas to write about. That itself provides months and years of work time on the site to build it up and remember, it’s still within the realm of 1 niche topic.

      Now when you get going this way, it is OK to broaden out into a different, but related niche topic. For example, if we take #3, the survival niche, if you break it down enough, you will have plenty of survival topics and products to talk about, but when you “run” out of ideas, you can go into other survival related niches, like surviving in the wild and add that to your site’s content base.

      I hope this helps you out and if not, let me know more details about one or more of the niche topic/s you were interested in doing.

  30. Hello Vitality! Another great post with lots of information to help people who don’t know what niche to choose. Yes, in order for your niche to be successful, it must be something you like. Interesting that your #1 niche is emergency supplies and your #3 is survival. I will forward your post to a friend who will benefit greatly from reading it. Thanks!

    • Hi Janxio, I want to point out that the numerical order of the niche topics I posted isn’t related to their popularity or which one is bigger, it’s just a number and they are all popular.

  31. Hi Vitaliy,

    I find it amazing how you came up with these niches. With regards to the “know” part, I’m sure there is a way to learn. But if you don’t like or love it? Well, I don’t think it’d work; Not for me anyway.

    I think the list you shared is a good list and agree with you that they’re good niches. But what about if “my niche” really isn’t a niche? What I mean is, what I like and want to write about is weight loss. Sure, I can focus on a particular area that I know pretty well to try and narrow it down more. But are you saying that I won’t be successful if I take this kind of route?

    Anyway, I think you’re doing great for yourself and I do hope to get to where you are some day.

    Good luck with everything.

    All the best,

    Marco

    • It’s certainly not impossible to succeed in a broad market like weight loss Marco, but I’ve tried that sort of thing before in targeting broad markets like that and I can tell you that it’s very difficult to make money in that. 

      Although it is ironic and perhaps rational to think that bigger markets like weight loss will make you more money than say an actual niche of weight loss like talking about low carb diets, in practice, when you make a website like this, you aren’t narrowing down your target niche audience.

      When you have a weight loss site and target the whole topic, you have a lot of different branches of topics to talk about and people who land on your site, will have different things in mind they are looking for. The problem is that a wide thinking audience doesn’t really know what they want, but a niche audience does, so selling to them is better. 

      Furthermore, when you try to create a site targeting a broad market, you’re looking at a lot more work in creating content since broad topics tend to have higher competing websites in the SERPS. 

      A niche audience can actually be in the millions if you look for it correctly and the 10 choices I gave you above are simply examples of what to think about, you don’t have to choose either of those 10, but you should consider how I made the choice and how defined each choice is. 

      There is no question about what I’m talking about in each of those topics, people can identify it and understand it right away and if I made sites on any of those topics, you can bet the incoming traffic would be ideal and of the sort that knows what they’re looking for. 

      However, if I were giving out 10 choices on say broad markets, people who landed on the site wouldn’t be able to clearly identify (since they are so many ways broad markets can be broken down and interpreted) and that would confuse them. And a confusion from the audience perspective creates difficulties in selling to that audience. 

  32. Hello and thanks for making this article. I a new to affiliate marketing and you really have explained a lot for me. The whole idea of keywords has taken some time for me to grasp. But by reading your post I have a pretty good idea now of how to approach a specific niche.

    Many of your ideas are interesting and fun. Survival, self defense, and camping is something I have been involved with for many years through he military. I can really see myself using these niches.

    It’s hard to imagine 1 million visitors per month but you make it seems quite possible.

    • Hi Angel, I’m glad to see my article helped you out. It certainly sounds like you’re into outdoor activities and have a lot of experience with the topics you specifically pointed to, so it would certainly benefit you to make a niche site on these 🙂 

  33. Wow, you have definitely provided a wealth of information and food for thought. I like your perspective on narrowing down your niche topic and keywords to successfully monetize your efforts. Your article gives your audience a proven method on keyword research and targeting specific issues that concern most people and meeting those needs.

    Your results shown as a Wealthy Affiliate member and the enormous growth tells me that my goals are reachable. You have also given me another reason as to why I will be purchasing Jaaxy as an integral part of my success equation.

    Thank you for the tips, suggestions and for unselfishly sharing what most Internet Marketers don’t, their guarded secrets.

    • Thank you Phildora, although I have to say, I would not consider what I shared here secrets, nor would I say this is information most marketers share. From my experiences, most of the marketers in this industry share an old, overused technique of marketing (list building, high ticket sales), which rarely help people succeed. 

      This idea on niche marketing has been proven to work many times and I just wanted people to understand that you can succeed if you target a niche you like, you don’t have to go about and collect email lists, scam people or do the old things those other marketers did and continue to do. 

  34. Thanks for the article. Some of that stuff, I never would have thought of. Having a keyword tool to research them is a smart move since so many people get started blindly and don’t even know what people want to buy.

    The one I found most interesting was the one of pets, number 6. People think of pets as part of the family. They spend a ton of money making them happy. It makes sense to tap into that niche, especially for someone who is having a hard time decided what niche they want because pets don’t require a lot of “tecky” knowledge.

    • Yes you are right on the point you made about the pet topic, but it is not a niche, remember you need to pick out a specific TYPE. This is why I mentioned things like reptiles or dog breeds. Be very careful if you go with this topic and make sure to pick a niche topic of pets, not the overall topic of pets. 

  35. Wow thanks so much for this Vitaliy, I think it’s one of the crucial parts of being successful in online marketing or not. The niche has to be with not too much competition and have a large online following. Personally I have a martial arts website, and I so know that the options your suggesting are very strong 🙂

    I’ve also got some keyword ideas from you so thanks for that! I also had no idea that emergency supplies had such a huge demand!

    You really are going to save people a lot of stress with this post, thanks for sharing!

    • No problem Marley. I’ve been considering doing a niche site for both martial arts and emergency supplies for several years, but the problem is I already have too many niche sites I’m engaged with to spare the time. I’ve contemplated hiring a writer to work on the other sites, but in my opinion, I first have to understand the niche very deeply before hiring someone and having them do what I want them to. 

      In any case, I just decided to share them in addition to the 8 others you see here to help people along, glad it helped your site as well.

  36. Vitaliy

    I had never thought of some of the niches you mentioned, but with the current fear being peddled in America I can understand the emergency stuff, survival stuff and even the self defense now a bit more clearly.

    You opened my eyes to some new areas online to look at more closely at and I do appreciate it. Thanks again for the great read, all my best,

    CannaGary

    • Thanks Gary. I will be honest though, I never listed the 3 particular niches you mentioned because I was thinking about what’s going on in the states, but it certainly does make sense. I will say that even if there isn’t some sort of panic going on, those 3 niches will still work fine. They are basically all evergreen and you can apply them to make profitable websites at any time.

  37. Dude! I love that you are taking the time to help people like me to hone in on a niche! it seriously can be so overwhelming for some of us who have no idea what we are doing going into online marketing. Some of us are lucky enough to already be passionate about something in particular. But having some guidance is huge so thank you so much for provided some great niche ideas and also giving some insight into how to monetize!

    • No problem man, I’m glad this article helped you brainstorm niches and hopefully pick one out, even if it is not part of this list.

  38. I am now looking for a new niche to start building an affiliate website. The few things I am interested in are Sports, Finance, and pets. Which do you think to have the most earning potential?

    The badminton niche has little competitors but less traffic too. Should I pick niches with more traffic and competitors, or less traffic and competitors?

    • The niche you should pick is the one you relate to most. Other than badminton, the other topics you mentioned are NOT very niche specified so I would not tackle them unless those topics are dug into deeper. With regards to potential, I only have to go by traffic, and sports would get the most, however that is NOT a niche topic which is why my estimate is VERY off. 

      If you give me a specific sport (like Badminton), a specific finance topic like trading stocks and a pet topic like taking care of bunnies, then we can go further and all those topics I just narrowed down ALL have great earning opportunities. 

  39. Very important points you have there. I’ve really been thrilled by those 10 niches. I think anyone without any ideas in online business can now get the flow of how it is done. Personally, I love the self-defence niche despite the fact that I don’t have any skills but it’s something I’ve always been yearning to know.

    I’m wondering if the music niche is a good one according to you? This is another major field of interest among others. What are your thoughts on this?

    I’ve really enjoyed reading your article it is so informative and simple to understand.

    I’m wishing you every bit of success

    Paul.

    • Hi Paul, “music” is not a niche, but there are examples: Being a DJ, a specific genre of music, specific type of electric guitars, those are niches pertaining to music and you can go with that and yes, it’s a good, popular market to explore.

  40. Great information! I only thought of one of your ten niches, hiking. But the other nine I’d never guess. After reading each description they all seem like great options. I appreciate your research into each of these niches. I did not know their were so many people interested in each of these.

    I’m really interested in exotic pets so I may try building a website and business off of that. I love designing and putting together aquariums for reptiles and amphibians. I always want to make it as natural as possible.

    Thank you for your help with ideas!

    Weston

    • I think the aquarium choice is amazing Weston and I think you have as deep of a knowledge on this as there can be to make a site on it. While you have experience designing them, you can actually show pictures of great designs people can make and promote products that people can mimic their aquariums of.

  41. Wow! Really great info. Can’t believe you came up with this list in five minutes! I’m really interested in creating a niche website on option #6 – taking care of a specific pet. In this case a miniature Schnauzer.

    I have a min. Schnauzer that I love and take care of him like if he were my son (LOL). I’ve had him for over a decade. So, I’ve even learned to groom him. I’d need to research the topics I would cover in the site but I think knowing about what is the target niche is a great start, right?

    What are your thoughts?

    Best,
    Mar.

    • Oh yeah this is a great niche option Mar, usually when you have a website dedicated to a specific breed, that is as niche oriented as you can get so with your 10 year experience in this, I would defiintely recommend buildign a website of this.

  42. Hi, Vitaliy

    I liked your idea about niches. I picked two of them.

    I really like to know about the survival niche and if I find a such a website, I will read and even buy some tools from them. The second one is about finances that are very important these days for everyone. Actually, I have a website in this field.

    Thanks

    Amir

    • Hi Amir, since you already have a site for the other topic, you can easily build on that by really helping people out with their porfolio and/or whatever other form of finance you’re good at.

  43. Hi, great post! Do you think you have to be very interested in your niche to be successful? I know that it is better if you have a passion for your business subject – but there is clearly value in letting the niche guide you as opposed to your hobby/interest? Just a thought. Ricky Brigg

    • Hi Ricky, certainly interest can carry you to build the niche site, but up to a point though! I actually distinguish this in this article which I recommend to you where I actually point to having an interest in the niche as NOT being enough, there also needs to be knowledge.

  44. Thanks for this – I do some part time work at home setting up niche affiliate sites. Researching keywords can take a lot of time, and you break it down in an easy to follow manner, which is great.

    I am always looking for tips on getting the most out of my keyword searches. Sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to find keywords that have low QSR and build up a site around them in order to start generating traffic quicker.

    I’m a little familiar with the tool you were using for your keyword searches, Jaaxy. I have never signed up to use it officially past the free trial run they give. But after looking over your article I will have to go back and take a second look at Jaaxy.

    Thanks!

    • Hi TD, if you set up sites for people and do keyword research, then Jaaxy will save you a ton of time, trust me. I would absolutely get it to help expedite your work faster.

      What will also help in addition to using Jaaxy is taking products in each niche site you set up and looking at the keywords for the product itself, generally you will find a lot of low competition options there, as well as accessories that go along with the product itself, those too tend to carry low competition keywords.

  45. Thanks for this great article. I have been wondering how narrow a niche should be and you have answered this for me. I am very interested in the scuba diving niche you mentioned as I am a Master Diver and a Handicapped Scuba Association certified instructor.

    I have taught scuba diving at the YMCA and I have taught handicapped people to dive. I was one of the first people to certify a quadriplegic person in the State of Ohio, back in the 80s.

    I have not dived many exotic locations, but I guess I could read up on places and then talk about them. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions that you might have with regards to topics to start with. I will check back soon for your response. I am also retired now and I am not familiar with today’s technology for scuba divers, I guess I would have to learn all of that too. Thanks again for the information.

    Carl

    • Hi Carl, it sounds like you have found your perfect niche topic. You certainly have more than enough background experience to help a beginner start scuba diving, but you are right, there are technological advances and places you have not dived in which will require you research these areas/advances before adding on your own experience to create great content.

      So honestly, I really think your path should be to make a niche site on this and make the way a program like Wealthy Affiliate advises. The way you talk about this topic and your history in it really shows me how interesting it is to you and it is rare to get someone speaking so deeply about topics that interest them. Again, I think this is a great choice for you to start with.

  46. Thank you for this post! People really tend to get stuck in finding their niche because it would seem like to narrow it down means narrowing the topics that you could write. This is not, however, true. For as long as your niche is something that interests you and something that you can talk about forever, I guess you are good to go.

    • The interest part is correct Cherie, this is the only way people can hang onto a niche site and keep building it, other people just don’t get this and they almost always fail then.

  47. Wow, thanks man. That golden retriever option seems like my cup of tea.

    Do you have any suggestions for niche ideas under the home remedies category?

    The hiking option seems interesting too but I do not know much about hiking. I will do some research and see if I can work on it.

    Thanks again for the info!

    • Hi Crystal, if you’re not that into hiking, start with the other niche topic, on the golden retriever one. As for the home remedies, you would need to isolate a particular health problem people have and offer up the home remedies as the solution, so my advise is, pick a common problem (it is a niche) and give out the home remedy information as the solution for this niche topic.

  48. Hello there! So thank you for this post, it is something I needed as I have a thought block on picking a niche. This article has given me some insight to select a niche with the ideas put out there. I am trying to drill down to specifics of some of the niche topics you mentioned. Hope to find one soon and start up a site soon. Thank you once again.

  49. Dear Vitaliy,

    A great post with just some simple niche ideas based on your decade of experience. I trust these 10 niches you have recommended will generate 6 or even 7 figures income.

    Being your avid follower, I am also looking forward to reading posts about high-paying affiliate programs.I have bookmarked this post anyway, so I can come back in the future to get ideas and inspiration. I personally love to write about drones and personal robots, for instance. Any idea from you would be highly appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Kipps

    • Oh wow, it’s a strange coincidence you mentioned drones Kipps, because I recently got 2 of the best ones, and I even considered writing a case study on the niche potential behind reviewing drones.

      I still may write about it now that you mentioned it, but let me tell you, it’s a fantastic niche and with the prices they charge for the high end ones, you can make some great commissions. Check out some drone videos on YouTube for ideas on what you can do. This is the type of niche I’d connect with not just writing articles about, but also making videos.

      As for other high paying affiliate offers, you may want to check out what some classify as high ticket offers, but of the ethical sort…

  50. You are offering awesome niche ideas!

    I was about to abandon my website about eliminating back pain because I had a very difficult moment in creating enough content…but with the support of the Wealthy Affiliate community I decided to not give up and few days ago I made my first affiliate commission!!

    Anyhow, in the future I might start a new site and you have some great ideas. I would like to have good survival skills and when my baby gets older (3 years old now) I would like to participate with him in a survivor course. Then I could have more knowledge to start website on that subject. Also emergency supplies is interesting. I once read about a way to grow vegetables vertically together with water “space” where fish were grown too and it was somehow a self feeding ecosystem that could give you fish and vegetables to eat in a very small space. Unfortunately I can’t remember the name of that system, have you ever heard of it? That could be also related to the aquariums and scenic environment setups if made a beautiful way.

    Hedging finances is something I would be advised in but don’t feel that I could give advice to others. I should become an expert first.

    My mom and dad are travelling through Europe with a camper so I could make a site about camping sites together with them… Not bad idea!

    Thank you for taking the time to give these awesome niche ideas!

    • Hi Maria, first of all, congratulations on the first sale made on your site. If you managed to reach this, then keep doing what you were initially to build this up. The first sale is always exciting, but make sure this doesn’t make you lazy.

      I am very glad my article is giving you a ton of ideas and you’re considering other sites, but for now, it seems like you have one that is interesting to you, and that is about back pain, which is a wonderfully profitable niche topic.

      I would not let these ideas distract you from your site. Definitely keep them in mind for the future, but make sure you focus on just one right now. I really warn people about the dangers of running multiple sites without good experience first here and I think you should a look at that to avoid this common mistake people make when they experience some level of success on their sites, then instead of working further with it, they put less work into it.

  51. I won’t lie, I’m not looking into getting into another niche right now since I’ve started one that I love, although my competition on the web is high (I’m hoping with time and hard work I can get my site ranked). With that said though, if I were to pick a niche that you mentioned it would probably be along the lines of your hiking suggestion. I do like to hike a couple of times per year. I wish I had the money to take up an interest of scuba diving as I’m sure I would love doing such an activity. If I did take up this hobby, I would also go for that type of niche. Thanks for some potential ideas if I ever need to switch niches or want to start another one!

    • Hi Jeremy, you will want to go ahead with the hiking niche site if this is what you truly love and let that be your entry into niche sites and making money. Should the site do well, you can expand, through the profits made into the scuba diving site should you wish it.

  52. I gotta say this post is good because so many people find it hard to find niches that work for them. Thank you so much for sharing this info because i think it will be very helpful to your readers.

    But should I choose a niche that makes me more money or ones that I have knowledge about?

    • The knowledge one is better Marshall, and you will often find those actually have great money making potential as well.

  53. Hi Vitaliy,

    I loved the article, very in depth and interesting. I think that I like the 1st and 2nd the most..think that they’re great ideas. You obviously know the way to make a living working from home online..I always wanted to do that. Do you think that it would be a good idea to be an affiliate selling a product or having your own brand created, stored, shipped, etc? I love the site and will be back..thanks.

    Pete

    • I always start with affiliate marketing to gain experience but ideally, you want to focus on the niche, not the product. It is the niche topic, mixed in with your knowledge of it which will help you decide if promoting a product to your audience or making it yourself is better.

      I actually just remember I also wrote a long article comparing both sides of what you are asking me to pick from, that being vendors and affiliates, so check it out 🙂

  54. All I have to say is WOW!

    Ok, I will say more… 🙂

    This list and the whole post are absolutely awesome! One of the things that really got me excited was the fact that you listed a niche that I will be working on as soon as I finish up with my first niche and get it rolling.

    Your whole take on this is an absolute gem that everyone should bookmark. Its not so much about the actual niches you listed but your whole idea about not going after the over saturated markets just because they show high numbers.

    Excellent right up and thank you very much!

    🙂

    • Well I didn’t target those niches because they aren’t “over saturated”, in fact many of them are, but it’s a myth.

  55. I always enjoy reading your new posts. They are so direct and strong, no waffle no fluff…just good info that I can make use of.

    I have a domain name waiting for me to action it into a real website but I keep stalling on it. It’s about old jack russels like the one in my photo.

    One day I think it’s a viable niche and the next I think its over loaded. I’m stumped and stuck and I guess I just don’t want to spend heaps of time on a niche that won’t earn money.

    After reading your article I went back to my keyword lists and dug some more. There is sure plenty to write about old dogs.

    With the new Amazon payments, this niche is still going to get 8%. I am looking at other affiliate programs to work alongside Amazon as well.

    Would you like to comment on my thoughts, Vitaliy?

    • I would not pursue a new niche without first making sure your first niche site is working and making money to fund the other/s Janelle. But in terms of the topic you listed, I think you can definitely make a page about that specific breed as they are popular and there is a niche audience there.

      About Amazon, I would not worry about the affiliate program and whether it’s available, worry more so about the niche topic and traffic (considering your current niche site is already working well which is the biggest priority).

      You can and will always be able to find stuff relevant to sell to your niche through more than just Amazon. Worst case, if NO affiliate programs are available, you can literally become a vendor yourself and sell things lik consultations on taking care of that breed or even do things such as open up a donation to the site so people who like your content can contribute. In short, there’s more options than just affiliate programs available.

  56. Thank you so much for helping me get started with a niche.

    You provide some very unique and insightful recommendations that I wouldn’t have thought of on my own!

    I’m most interested in the hiking trail ideas as I feel equipped with enough knowledge to discuss this topic thoroughly.

    Thanks again for getting me started with my website!

    • That is a great topic and one I may start on later this year as well. Lots of selling opportunities there as well some exciting ways to see new places while getting paid from your site to view it. You may also want to check out about travel blogs and how to go about them.

  57. Hi Vitaliy,

    Thanks for another informational post, it is great to hear your opinion about what you think a very good and profitable niche would be.

    I have to agree with your trend of thoughts on coming up with these. There does seem to be a need in these niches that you applied, and I do agree that no matter when or how long into the future we move on, these will still be niches that will be highly sought after!

    Thanks again for the great sharing! Keep it coming!

  58. What a fantastic list of niche ideas. I hope you kept some left over for yourself in the future as it’s very handy. You have done the niche research for all of them, ready to go and start on some of them. A number of those niches i’d be interested in using.

    • Thanks Ash, honestly, even if I were interested in any of these niches (I actually am!), it wouldn’t matter if someone also went into them with me or tried to piggyback of me. We would still have our own unique work to put out there and Google in the end would always rank the better site/content over the other.

  59. I found the top 10 niche’s on your post very interesting. The keyword stats revealed some amazing results and I was fascinated how this keyword tool can reveal so much about a niche.

    Theseniches look like good money spinners. I think I would pick emergency supplies as my top niche and the outdoor generators would be my first choice as it serves a multitude of purposes.

  60. Hi there Vitaliy,

    Great article! and some fabulous niches to exploit and market to here! And with Amazon there is never ever a shortage of products to review in any niche.

    I am quite surprised you didn’t mention anything to do with babies or children or teens those niches can be pretty viable and profitable too.

    • Those niches are so big that they require a single post to be dedicated to them Derek! My goal in this post was to just let people know that besides the big niches such as the ones you mentioned, these are wonderful too, less competitive and also extremely profitable.

  61. Hi, Vitaliy.

    Looks like you really poured your heart and soul into this article. I’m just curious, out of the ten niches you just talked about, which one do you think is the most profitable? Does it matter which niche I choose as long as I use non-competitive keywords?

    Thank you for your insights,
    Kalie

    • I don’t have a preference for profit, the thing is it all depends on the work you put into each niche topic, how many keywords you target and the type of content you write Kalie, that is what determines the profitability, not the actual niche.

      Sure there are exceptions, but something to keep in mind is that all 10 I’ve listed are profitable, the question is which do you prefer? And when I say that I am hinting at preference not based on profit value, but your knowledge on the niche.

  62. One of the niches you mentioned here is something I would definitely be interested in. I am already finding some promising keyword phrases and I’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible! Thank you for this!

  63. You niche suggestions certainly were varied. I had not thought about checking out the number of searches for a niche before really beginning to do research. The camping and hiking suggestions really hit me. I enjoy both activities, but hadn’t really thought about building anything around those activities. Both of these these involve a lot of people.

    As well, there are lots of affiliate opportunities. One thing, important to me, when looking for a niche, is being able to blog about the subject. The blogging possibilities for both of these niches is almost unlimited. Thanks for the suggestions. Not only have you given some ideas about niches, but also information on hope to research for a niche.

    • I varied the choices to show just how diverse the topics can be. And honestly, if someone has an interest, I guarantee you there’s always a niche they can link that interest to and build a business of it.

  64. I am glad pets were on the list as I’m going all in on mine and even though it’s not breed specific the topics I’m covering will be along the lines of “Expat’s pets” and “pet travel’ and “pets in the tropics” all from a layman’s point of view not as a substitute for veterinary advice of course. I am involving my own pets and I would also like it to be interactive. My pets will be facing quarantine and things like that so I think it will be unique.

    Great post and I am learning so much from this site. I need to get better at selecting keywords and I appreciate the detail on that here.

    Cheers,

    Alison

  65. Really nice of you to share these ideas. I was actually thinking of one of the niches you mentioned and thought it too broad. I never did do any real research and when I saw your keyword search I thought to myself “He hit it just right”. I am going to review your 5 steps and see where it leads.

  66. Hey Vitaliy,

    I think when it comes to pets everyone likes to go for cats and dogs. These are all great, but I think they are really oversaturated. I can personally attest to the pet niche. I have a site in the leopard gecko niche. I don’t have a lot of competition, and it’s starting to make some decent money now. I did have a question for you, though? How long does it usually take you before you start to notice if you can make money in a niche or not?

    • Hi Garen, for the question you asked, I’d say as soon as you see traffic coming in from search engines everyday, it’s a good sign, but you are partially right regarding the “saturation” thing.

      The pet niche itself is very general and the one you’re in is actually quite great so I’m not surprised that it’s working for you, but be careful with the topic of saturation because I have never found an actual niche that is actually that and I’ve proven it many times.

      • That is very interesting about saturated. I guess you just have to dig a little deeper into your keyword research.

        I do think a lot of people do lack the persistence, though. Good things take some time 🙂

        • Exactly, they don’t think far enough or don’t dig deeper into the niche. Just because a niche is hot among affiliates doesn’t mean everyone is willing to work as hard to reach the top results or rank for the limitless keywords out there that they can get traffic and sales through, hence why market saturation is a lie.

  67. What a great list of niche ideas and the they way you broke it all down was brilliant. It really helped me break down my niche ideas, which I need to work on a bit more, especially as a beginner. I was a scuba diving instructor and didn’t even consider this as an idea, so might check that idea out a bit more.

  68. Making a site which will help people prepare to a zombie apocalypse? I’m all in! 🙂

    Seriously, though, those are some great ideas for a niche Website.

    Actually, I’d like to ask what do you think of portable gaming devices (handhelds for gamers) – can it be considered a niche or is it too broad? I have a site dedicated to this and I think it’s really a niche – there aren’t a ton of such devices, there are actually a lot of people who are interested in those devices, but I believe there are not too many of them.

    Anyway, I just want to know your opinion on it.

    Thanks!

    • Well if you include tablets which are portable and have games, then it can work Dmitriy, but it’s a tough one because it’s a combination of different audiences that are too spread apart on the interests (some may only like games on tablets, some may like games on portable things like Gameboy).

      Maybe a better niche than this one would be gaming computers which in my opinion has a much more identifiable audience.

  69. Vitaliy, I gotta tell you, these are some awesome niche ideas. I’m happy that you broke each one down with its traffic and affiliate stats. It really allows us to see the potential with each one. Also, how you specifically targeted an audience. This really simplifies and and teaches you how to brainstorm in finding niches ideas. I personally like the taking care of your pet one. I have a golden retriever, and I know just about everything there is to know in how to care for it. I am totally thinking of tackling this niche!

    Thanks,

    Jonathan

  70. Bro, what a wonderful list of ideas!

    I think a lot of beginners don’t fully understand the extent of possibilities, that’s why they say: “I can’t think of a niche”… not realizing that everything around them is a potential money maker 😉

    Keep posting these ideas, I’m sure we’ll see some of your readers take on some of these niches and build profitable sites.

    Alex

  71. I find the specific pet niche appealing, mostly because I can relate to it. The survival niche is too far from my interests so creating content on this topic would be really hard for me.

    Of course, there is the possibility to outsource the content, but this s not something I am comfortable with yet.

    Anyway, I find all your suggestions interesting, thanks for sharing.

    • You know the outsourcing part is also something I was thinking of covering Daniela and frankly, I think if you could put in a few $1,000 for an article writer, you can probably get one of these niche sites up and running to about 50 articles, but that’s not an investment I’d make until you have the budget.

  72. Hey Vitaliy,

    Wow I never knew scuba diving gear is a great niche to dive into. Lately I’ve been really hooked up with scuba and I’ve been learning new things everyday.

    Awesome list you’ve put up man, thanks for taking the time to write this. Definitely creating a new website now thanks to you 😀

    • Hi Riaz, you should begin a site on this. At this point, you have more than enough interest and some experience to start the site and grow it at the same pace you are growing your experience on it.

  73. Vitaliy-

    Wow… first and foremost you really did your research to come up with such a diverse group of niche markets. Man that ‘self defense’ niche kinda got my juices flowing a little bit despite the all the competition. All in all… the effort and detail you put into this article is very much appreciated. This is a great stepping stone for new marketers struggling with niche ideas. If I do decide to proceed with the self defense niche, I’ll come back and let you know how it worked out.

    Thanks
