What niche would you go into if you had to start now?

40 replies
Do you see any trending niches that might stick around for a while?

What about a sub-niche within that niche?

    I saw lots of dirty old MLMs all over the popular social media asking people if they want to get rich while they themselves are struggling to make ends met. LoL!

    Well, I don't know about trending. But since you also asked--"that might stick around for a while", maybe this thread can help...

        Niche Man,

        I would add Weight Loss/Exercise and Travel to your list of evergreen markets (maybe you're including weight loss in "health." And just to be clear since the OP asked about "niches" . . . you're not suggesting that your Super 7 are niches. You're talking about "related products and services" in their own niche within the Super 7 broad markets. Correct?

        Your job is to create or find an idea that hasn't been done or done as well within those markets.
        agree! all these are called evergreen niches!
        BUT they are at a higher level, you should go into a lower level of these board niches, narrow the idea down, for example, paleo food is very popular now

        food
        -diet
        --paleo
        ---weight
        ---receipt

        so you can find two niches from this structure, paleo food for weight loss or paleo food receipt, you may use kindle market place for reference or think about your own life experience, same niche finding can be find in make money:

        money making
        -online
        --affiliate
        ---email list
        ---squeeze page

          "your job is to create or find an idea that hasn't been done or done as well within those markets".

    electronics - samsung s6, ipad mini, laptops, cell phones
    fashion (shoes) - Jordan's, Lebron, running shoes, football cleats
    school supplies - backpacks, art supplies, dorm room furniture
    fashion (clothes) - jeans, coats, think stuff for fall and winter, people shop ahead to get stuff on sale
    weight loss - insanity by shaun t
    halloween - costumes for kids (parents usually buy more than one - home, school) can break this stuff down by age group
    toys - can also be broken down by age group

    These are just a few things you can promote. Stuff like this works all year long. I hope it helps.

      How about eSports? Professional videogaming is a rapidly growing spectator sport and there are so many genres of games.

      Check out the popularity of the game streaming site Twitch[dot]tv on Alexa. Twitch was bought by Amazon last year for $970m.

      I'm not sure how you would enter this market to make money, but it is a busy and growing niche though.

    I built a keyword tool and it's now recording what category of topic people are researching (stats here).

    It needs to chug away for a few more days before more data shows on the public facing site. But I am surprised at how diverse people's niche ideas are. Health, shopping and making money are of course popular, but there are plenty of other niches.

    NSFW niches seem quite popular - where there's muck there's brass.

    I've always loved the prepper niche. If I wasn't so damn lazy I'd be building a sick authority site in that niche.



    Also, health, wealth, sex, and god will always be profitable.

    PS:

    Ask yourself what demographics there are around the world who are spending money. (Hint: Retirement age baby boomers are a great target demographic, so what are they buying? Health? Wealth?).

      Here's a general list of a few of my favorite marketing arenas and hottest niches, which has not really changed much at all over the years (no particular order):

      economics, health, medical, pharmaceuticals, diet and fitness, recipes, financial, real estate, technology, biotechnology, genetics, energy, art, fashion, jewelry, literature, architecture, engineering, history, ancient civilization, hobbies, biography, sociology, education, religion, philosophy, politics, criminology, security, sports, travel, aircraft, space exploration, agriculture, chemistry, physics, astronomy, cosmology, psychology, zoology, ecology, biology, archaeology, geology, oceanography, climatology, meteorology, mythology, occult, astrology, conspiracies, UFOs, end of the world catastrophes.

      Specifically, if I had to all over again, I would most likely just stay away from the Mayan 2012 prophecy niche, because it expired after only a 16-year run.

      Good "backend" products? Seriously?

      As to the original question...

      There are a variety of related niches, in markets already mentioned, that are worth pursuing. In narrowing that down, I'd still focus on just a few market segments, like newly affluent, or DINKs (Double Income, No Kids, which includes both empty nesters and the never-had-them types, along with the gay market even though I poked fun at Randall for his choice of words.)

      Bottom line, find groups of people with money to spend and a demonstrated willingness to spend it, then offer them the things they want to spend it on.

        Stop poking, John. Leave a man's backend alone.

        I'd probably jump into personal finance with a twist. Make the articles more actionable as opposed to merely providing old, tired finance tips.

        I'd also interview people who have gone from homeless to living comfortably, and so on. Ya know, keep it fun and interesting.

    I can think of several potentially profitable niches that I might consider getting into. However, I realize I know little or nothing about them, am not personally interested in them, would find it difficult to write about them, and would not stick with them for very long. I know I would soon fail in my attempt, blaming the failure on the niche itself, and then jumping to the next niche where I would fail again.

    Although a very broad question but there are many many niches that trend (trend does not mean long lasting, although it is not a fad or fashion but it does not last long). What I believe is that you do not want to find a niche which is trending now, but a niche that is growing and will be trending in sometime, therefore will be a good market to get in right now.
    I saw review and rating services are growing in very particular markets, for example Uber driver reviews, although you have it on the app but websites are also growing.
    Also wearable technologies such as e-fitness gear are getting noticed and will be big in future.

    As far as niches go, look for the niches where people are fanatical.

    Pet owners, especially dog owners, are fanatical

    Look for the specific breeds... pit bull, dachshund, bull dog

    Sometimes you have to look at people in your own social circle to get some good ideas

    I have a never married aunt who is retired with no kids and all this money to spend

    She owns a dachshund and treats it like a kid

    She spends money on this dog like it's a kid

    She is a perfect avatar for this niche, and you could keep selling stuff to her all year based just on her love of that dog

    So, with niches, look for the fanatical niches with money to spend, and get SPECIFIC

    Don't be afraid to pinpoint a niche group that may seem "small"

    If they fit the other criteria, you may find your conversion to be quite good.

    Hope this helps.

    You can't go wrong with male enhancement (specifically extender devices). Lots of demand and very profitable.
    Also coupon codes. Anyone searching for a discount/coupon/promo code is in the process of purchasing. Intercept coupon code traffic and provide coupon codes on your site and you will pick up the easiest commissions you'll ever make as there is no selling involved.

    Computers were a trend in 1985, the MAC had just been introduced.
    How to use the home computer, and software hasn't gone away.

    Look to ANY person spending money, if there is a group of people buying similar things, you may have a market and a niche within it.

    Golf...a market. Niche; new drivers. Putters. Training equipment. Trends? All things Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Justin Spieth. Donald Trump.

    One of the most favorable niches for you, is one you are involved in and know about. What do you spend time and money on?

    Riding a trend requires skill in an exit strategy, for example. when baseball cards and comic stores were springing up, the guys who got out before the bubble burst made the dough, while today, there are basements and garages full of cards and comics, which most would have trouble getting back their initial investment.

    Basics (or evergreen if you prefer) are food, clothing, shelter, cars, relationships, music, sports and many other markets with scores of niches to tap into.

    INFORMATION, from experience, is always welcome in the niche and trend markets. And, it is easily acquired and readily bought and sold to those who buy such information.

    To paraphrase Richard Condon...

    "interest is the key to life (profits),
    interest is the clue,
    interest is the drum and fife,
    and ANY niche will do"

    One trend always with us, people grow, they are born and they die. The Parade of Life between the cradle and the casket is rich with opportunity as long as you are in synch with the parade.

    You're asking the wrong question. If you want to build a REAL business, you can't leap from trend to trend.

    Look at two things, and two things only:

    1). What are you a subject matter expert in?

    2). What are you still going to be interested in 5 years from now?

    If you just want to make a few quick bucks over the next few months, then sure, chase whatever is trendy. But if you want a lasting, persistent, evergreen income stream(s), then don't chase trends.
