Give Me a Niche You Would Like to Try But Can't Figure Out How to Research

Update! Go to message #14 to see the first example for you.

Hey Warriors!

A student of mine asked a good question:

"Let's say you have a niche like Elephant Hunting that you know nothing about! How would you go about researching it and deciding what to write about?"

Well since we know that's not a real (broad enough) niche, give me some ideas here on a niche YOU would possibly like to enter and I'll try to do a few examples to share on how to research for it for an eBook, etc.

    Elephant Hunting actually is a very profitable niche, and a perfect example of trying to focus on the obscure. I would have my people interview elephant hunters and suppliers, and also set up a blog. But I think this would be so fascinating so see how else it could be done.

    How about golf. I think there is too much competition and all the most searched keywords are spoken for.

      Would like to see your take on this one as well.

      5-HTP is a wonderful thing. Over the counter at Walmart, less than $9.00 US.

      I would highly recommend some study.

      Feel free to e-mail or PM.

      Hello TifannyDow,

      Can you add up "business marketing" , I think it has a very high competition.

    Thanks for your patience, Warriors – and for giving me some niche ideas you’d like to learn how to research! I’ve done a video (21:22) and txt for your convenience depending on if you prefer to watch or read.

    One thing I want to point out – when ghostwriting for someone else, if you don’t know a topic enough to be able to write it off the top of your head, factor the research time and resources into your quote. You should get faster at this as you write more.

    Back when I was only ghostwriting, I remember some of my guru clients offering $100-$500 extra for resources so then I realized I COULD include that! I’d tack that on and go to Barnes and Noble and buy about five $20 paperbacks – usually Dummies Guides and Idiots Guides – they’re PERFECT for topics you don’t know because they’re well laid out and thorough.

    Then I’d have those resources for future projects, too. Okay so let’s do the first niche idea and later I’ll do the other three you guys suggested last night. Here’s the video and below is the text:


    Golf

    This is a very broad, but very profitable niche. It’s also a niche where problem-solution is dominant. EVERY golfer has a problem – even the pros. First, I know golf’s broad so I want to narrow it down a bit so that I can compete better in the marketplace.

    I use Market Samurai (but you can use Google’s free tool too) and search for 2 or more word phrases for the broad word “golf” using 100 searches per day minimum and 100k or under competing pages and the two that qualify are:

    Golf tips driving - no
    Golf driving tips - no

    Then I go back to MS and type in “golf driving” and get more options:

    Golf driving lessons – no domain available
    Golf driving practice – no domain available
    Golf driving technique – yes domain available
    Golf driving tips for beginners – yes domain available
    Golf instruction driving – yes domain available
    Hitting longer golf drives – yes domain available
    Longer golf drives – no domain available
    Tips on golf driving – yes domain available

    I take these and plug them into Google’s free keyword tool along with the basic “golf driving” phrase to get more options and then keep that list open so I can switch back and forth between Google’s tool and GoDaddy to see if the domain’s available. I listed the ones available above just in case anyone wants to go grab them. They’re all the dot coms.

    I would gather tons of keywords for a blog and use them daily, but always focus on the same keyword as my domain more than any other.

    Next I would start spying on competition and existing books to see what’s being sold already on this topic so that I would know what needs to go in there and make my eBook outline from that.

    Golf eBook Outline:

    I randomly list keywords I find in spying on the competition. I never cut and paste. Just pick out topics that are covered – like stretches, muscles, etc. After I gather them all (you can see me finding that in the video above), I organize into a logical sequence.

    Of course you’d stretch before playing, the backswing would come before the follow through, and so on. And you take each topic and research it as if it’s its very own eBook – drill down.

    So below I did an example of this for the muscles chapter. I quickly discover that shoulders, back, legs, and core are the main ones. So I add those to the outline, then drill down each one of those – take legs, and drill down into calves and thighs. For each one, explain what the muscle is, how it affects your golf drive, and then the solution – how to build it into a better performing muscle for golf.

    1.) Stretches
    2.) Muscles – better golfing and injury prevention
    -shoulders
    -back
    -legs
    *calves
    *thighs
    -core
    3.) Equipment – best driver (brand and models), training equipment – indoor mats
    4.) Backswing - Weight shift – shoulder rotation – backswing
    5.) Follow through
    6.) Drills (balance and power)
    7.) Accuracy/Aim – body alignment
    8.) Distance

    Once you flesh it out like this, you should have a very thorough product covering everything that needs to go into this niche topic.

    After analyzing your outline you could come up with a good title, like I have listed below the outline topics:

    8 Tips on Golf Driving for Better Distance and a Lower Handicap

    From this point, you do the writing! Remember – NEVER cut and paste and rewrite. EDUCATE yourself and write from scratch. If you need reminders, just jot down a few keywords and that should spur your mind.

    More to come later on:

    Self-improvement
    Natural relief for serotonin disorders
    Career Advice

    PS – If I’ve missed something or you have more questions, please ask here and I’ll cover it in the next example!

      Great info Tiffany - thank you so much
      How much time would you suggest a newbie spends on researching a new topic and how would you cost it? I'm a bit OCD when it comes to research and know I would get carried away and probably spend way longer than was necessary!
