    I don't know if it is against the rules, but breaking into the adult niche would be extremely difficult. It is a ruthless!

Any Help Would Be Appreciated. http://www.gofundme.com/vg5kt4c

      I'm really fascinated with how UFOs are included in this list I remember being obsessed with it for a while. Just brought back memories. I really need to do more keyword research!

      On to topic, general top 5 for me are:

      Health
      Insurance
      Dating
      Pets
      Weddings

        Belief in UFOs originating from extraterrestial worlds and of aliens living among us is persistently held by large segments of the population, and is consistently among my top 5 most profitable niches. Here's a couple of books on Amazon that sell extremely well in these circles:

        Aliens Among UsAliens Among Us
        Alien Agenda: Investigating the Extraterrestrial...Alien Agenda: Investigating the Extraterrestrial...

        Telescopes, UFO detectorsUFO detectors , and gag gifts (my favorites) are top sellers among both sides of the issue

    The 5 niches that are very profitable.....I know of only one.

    It would be the home business niche online. That niche is growing very fast and will grow for years to come. Some people think that it is saturated and no one will ever buy again but they are wrong.

    New babies are born each day around the world. In 18-25 years from now they will be searching for a way to earn money online.

    Everyday, 10,000's of new people all over the world (maybe more) go online for the first time and have one thing in their mind. They want to be able to learn how to make money online.

    The biggest and most profitable niches are usually those who have
    the most people looking to solve a problem that they're desperate to
    solve.

    Problems= good, large niches

    You'll always make more money in niches
    where people are actively searching for a solution
    to their problem.

    That's why weight loss, dating and relationships, sex,
    finances, career, job, work at home, biz opp, health,
    fitness... those are all top niches and markets that
    will continue to be top sellers.

    Think of all the areas in your life that you either
    want to have success in... or be happy in... and
    more than likely, there's a large group of people
    (market) who want to fix that area of their life.

    So, most top niches/markets are those
    where there's a large group of people
    who have desperate problems they want
    solutions for.

    Good markets are those with a large base of
    passionate fans... passionate to either solve
    a problem they have or fulfill their desires.

    That's why markets like weight loss, work from
    home, health and wellness, dating, etc... those
    will always be top sellers, because people want to
    fix those areas of their lives, if they're not happy in
    them.

      Adult is one of the leading markets online, it is years ahead of most markets. Then you have weight loss, dating and gambling, not sure what number 5 would be. These are just my opinions of course.

        The adult industry is not the leading one. It is one of them.

        The lead goes to the online home business niche. You can profit from it if you know what you are doing.

          Anything which backs this up? I just stated my opinion, I can see the adult industry completely killing online home business niche, along with weight loss, gambling and dating. If you could point me to something which shows otherwise, that would be an interesting read.

              I am sure that more people are looking for ways to loose weight or find a partner then there are people looking for ways to make money online. I am not saying that make money online is a small market, it is huge but the demand for weight loss products far exceeds that. With over most developed countries having an obesity in the areas of 40-70%, this is a much bigger market and quite honestly, a lot more money is being done here. Weight loss in America alone is worth 60.9 billion, that is a huge value for that market.

        The best information I can refer you to on this subject comes from Eben Pagan in his "Niche Intelligence Report." It can be downloaded freely (without opt-in). Just Google "Niche Intelligence Report" (with quotes) and it's the first search result.

        Why Eben?

        In the report he says, "I’ve invested almost 10 years now building a successful Information Product business that has sold over $100 Million in information products and services."

        I'd say he has a pretty respectable track record and more experience than most of us on the WF. He knows his stuff.

        He talks about "The Big Three Mega-Niches" which are:

        1. Health & Fitness
        2. Dating & Relationships
        3. Business & Money

        He further breaks those niches down into 29 of the best sub-niches he has found within the big three. I suggest you get the report and read it - a short 26 pages total. (Pay attention to these 29 suggestions)

        Am I giving his secrets away? No. The last line of his report says:

        "Oh, by the way: If you enjoyed this report, please forward it to others and tell them to get on my interest list!"

    A lot of people are saying the make money online niche - which is a big money niche; but it is not an easy money niche. Also I agree that the adult niche is a ruthless one - not to mention the fact that Google HATES it. And, by the way, Google also hates the IM niche.

    It's funny I stumbled across this thread because just within the last hour or two, while doing research for the site that I'm in the process of building (I have a site that sales niche bundles of resale rights material) I found a blog post "5 Affiliate Marketing Niches That Can Make You $1000 A Day." The writer's premise here is not that these are the top earning niches per se, but the easiest to break into and make money at relatively quickly. And he writes from his own experience. And I have to say I think he's pretty much spot on. If you Google it you can probably find it and read what he has to say (the author's name is Justin Dupre), but here they are in a nutshell:

    1. Dating
    2. Gaming
    3. Education
    4. Weight Loss
    5. Muscles

    I think it would be make money online, weight loss, relationship, finance related and gaming in no particular order. It may be easier to make money from low competition niches and there are tons of them out there.

      Top 3 evergreen markets are Health, Wealth and Lifestyle.

      If we go deeper to each market's niches, we can find:

      Running, Diet, Yoga, Weight loss, Martial Arts, Pilates, Diabetes, Wellness, etc. for Health

      Making money online, Home business IM, List building, Affiliate Marketing, etc. for Wealth

      and

      Dating, Relationship, Gardening, Puppies, etc. for Lifestyle.

      If I just have to rank them according to their GMS, I'll have these 5.

      1. Running
      2. Dating (same with Yoga)
      3. Diabetes
      4. Weight loss
      5. Martial Arts

      Of course there are other keywords that have higher GMS than these 5. These are just top of mind, thus, many other hot niches may have been left out.

      Making money online per se has lower searches compared to some of the keywords above. Ironically, money is made in these other niches through the terms that IM coined (affiliate marketing, list building, traffic, etc.).

      I just didn't include the adult stuffs, but they're huge.

      Thanks!

    2) Wealth - wealth creation, forex, stockmarket.

    4) Wellness - natural remedies, despression

  • Profile picture of the author aceshigh888
    So in other words what you need to strongly consider is those 5 markets are gonna be way way way overly competitive to the point where it's really not worth doing. I'd focus on finding one niche were you have little to no competition. It could be the goofiest thing too but if you have no competition and there's enough search activity for it, you actually have an opportunity make a mint. It's a license to print money if you do it right. The alternative to that is creating a new market that no one has thought up yet. Like with some of the new sites like pinterest, twitter, reddit, adf.ly, and on and on. But ya I'm not sure, that top 5 or top 10 scares me, just too much competition. It reminds me of the mall that opened near my place. When it first opened shockinly there was like 10 shoe stores in the mall. And it was a small mall. (like 10 FREAKING SHOE STORES!) I was thinking, this is weird! Now yrs later it's actually down to just 1! And it's the biggest and most discounted.

    In general, I can list these:

    2. health/weight loss/wellness
    3. relationships/dating
    4. learning to play a musical instrument
    5. (not sure…??)

    Besides #1, not sure of the exact order.

    These are all categories, with many niches falling under them.

    The above 4 (and maybe 5) deal with self improvement in one way or another…

        Well, in my experience, I think the following niche would drive plenty of traffic, and therefore, plenty of online revenue.

        My top 5 Marketing Niches are:

        1) Health and Fitness (Diet, Exercises, Programs, etc)
        2) Home Improvement (Furniture, Interior and Outside decoration, pool pumps, etc)
        3) Web Design, Blogging, and SEO tips, tricks, and techniques. :rolleyes:
        4) Medical and Dental (Hair Loss treatment, etc)
        5) Lifestyle for Men and Women, etc (just think Oprah.com)

        These niche are just a random list I think is profitable for people who wants to rake in all the profits, if they do their SEO properly.

        Thanks

    Out of all the people I've coached I have noticed when there's a problem to be solved, there's money to be made. Being said (I'll throw my 5 up in a second) I have a 'student' that loves politics and banks around $700 a week on AdSense between 3 of his blogs: Conservative, Liberal, and Independant political discussions and he made it easy on himself. He'll take a trending news story and hit it from the Conservative and Liberal sides (2 posts) and then his own. He also sells a TON of syndicated talk show host books (Smirkonish, Inghram, Combs, Beck, etc.).

    I find the following to be lucrative:
    Controversy
    Hobby/leisure
    Trending (a multi-purpose newsy type of blog)
    How to pass (different certifications and licensing)
    And finally Brad Gosse's favorite (I think) - Adult based (it's against my religion otherwise I'd be in it).

    Hi everybody,
    I dont think Weight Loss is the biggest niche. I think the biggest niche whether we like to admit it is PORN. Sorry but I had to say that word. Let me tell you a short story. Back in the days when Clickbank were happy selling software for downloading movies etc for free I had a website selling their software and making about $50 a month. I went into the logfiles to see what people were searching for and guess what the majority of it was "download free adult movies" etc. so I added a few extra pages explaining how the software could be used to download this type of movie and suddenly my affiliate commission was $2000 A FORTNIGHT, not bad for a mornings work changing the site. needless to say CBank decided that filesharing software was not really acceptable to them and stopped it and likwise overnight stopped my commission - well thats life, never mind. Just my opinion of course but think about it, what do people think about most - their weight or sex.

    1. Affiliate Marketing- This may seem odd, but as an affiliate marketer you can promote affiliate marketing courses.
    2. Dog Training- This may sound funny but people are always looking for good information about how to train their dogs better.
    3. Weight Loss- This is a Niche that will never go way. Why? Because there will always be a need for people to lose weight.
    4. Hair Loss- Just like weight loss, the hair loss Niche is a big market. Men really hate the idea of losing their hair.
    5. Travel Bargains- This is a niche that will never disappear either. We all want holidays and we always want to save money so this niche will always be popular.

    Those are my top 5.
