    Wood working - from sheds to cabinets and such. It sells itself ... there's a ton of interest and people have no problem plopping down money to learn.

    An added bonus, a lot of the content can be sourced from public domain material.

    Another niche that has paid nicely is the model train niche.

    I do not have a membership site around model trains but it's an expensive hobby and the people that are into model trains are into model trains. Obsession level high. That usually makes for some great cash.

    I came across the idea of 'how to get your ex-girlfriend back' recently. I figured it would be a good niche, always growing with emotional buyers.

      my husband recently created a product for this niche, but I'm having a hard time trying to market it. I thought about turning it into a membership but we decided to do a monthly coaching for this instead. Still would like to see sales but it's still in the early stages.

      Tried it - failed miserably. Might work for you, though

        That niche has been saturated for awhile. You'd have to have a really unique angle to get buyers.
