How to choose a market?

Hello there,

I am new to CPA marketing. I would like to find an appropriate market to start promoting offers at. I have been advised to choose a market first, not an offer.

So now I want to choose a market and would like to ask you if you know any tips or hints on how to choose a good market/niche, taking into account that I am now starting out and don't have funds to run PPC.

    In CPA networks, there are ton of really great markets out there, but the best converting one are:

    - Health/fitness
    - Muscle Building
    - Teeth Whitening
    - Credit Cards

    you may also have a look at:

    - Free Trials.
    - Short Form Submit
    - Email/Zip submit

    As a beginner, be away from PTS (Paid To Sale) offers.

    I hope this will help.

    If you want to join an affiliate marketing program and make lucrative commissions promoting that company’s products through your website, then you have got to find a viable niche first.

    In Affiliate marketing, you must first focus on the three "EVERGREEN" markets which are Wealth, Health, and Lifestyle. These are individually huge markets and it is impossible to sell to everyone in these markets. Choose one market and then focus your attention on a smaller segment of that market.

    I don't want to spam with another thread, so I am posting this question here:

    Allright, so now, as I've chosen the weight loss market, I intend to build review style website with affiliate links leading preferrably to free offers (multi-field submits and so on). My main question is: what keywords/keyword types should I go after, and should I build sites dedicated to just one product or a more general selection of offers/products?

    Do you guys have any thoughts or suggestions you could share and get me there faster? :-)

    Also, is it a good idea to build review style sites? I plan to build bigger sites, as I have heard that Google doesn't seem to like small sites with about 3 pages anymore, and I've personally seen that happening to a number of my sites.

    Thank you for any input!

    for me, i would choose the product first, and then build any sites around that kinds of product. I want to be more specific and all my traffic will be converted

    Hey

    What you want to do is NOT go for a niche product. You want to grab yourself a slice of a MASSIVE market where competition is stiff and payouts are huge. Wherever theres no competition, there is no market anyway.

    I do mostly financial offers which pay out a ton (up to $90 for a simple form submit without a credit card), so THAT is serious money.

    Any questions just let me know

      I've also been told that finance is not good for beginners to start with and that it is more for seasoned CPA marketers, who I am not. Maybe dating could be OK at the beginning?

    Pick something that you are comfortable with. If you are building a website try to rank for some long term keywords and build your way up from there.

    Pick a market that you are personally interested in... Unless you will only be doing paid traffic direct to offer- You're going to have to create some content, and even if you outsourced your content creation- you're going to have to have the personal insight to make sure that the content you had written is accurate, relevant, and meets a visitors needs/interests.
    So again, start with something that YOU are interested in.

    In my opinion, the best market is the one you know the most about, regardless of its keyword popularity. This is because if you know a lot about a subject, you can write the detailed and unique content yourself and corner those keywords, which should lead to profitability.

      I enjoy and find success in the health niche. It's very broad with lots of sub niches to choose from. Especially these day people are taking their health more seriously and are willing to spend money on it.

      Plus their are tons of offers to choose from within this market. Always a plus!
