    Well numbers will depend on where you are going to compare it. We cannot give you a good number it is up for you to analyze.

    I mean what is a good sign that the domain is good? I'm using similarweb. This domain ranked #77 in this niche. Country rank 15,000. 1.33M total visits. Has about 70% bounce rate. Page visits duration 1:58. Is this domain good?

      Yes I know that. The reason why I asked for domains is because I was reading up on a guide and the author said "another way to determine the demand in a particular niche is to look at how many visitors some of the most popular sites in that niche are receiving." The author goes on to show images of web traffic and rank, and tells you if it's good or not. So I thought I should write my course with a live showcase + images. But before I write my course, I just want to make sure if this is a good method to jot down for niche research. But Steve has already clear that up.

        Steve showed you how to go about niche research as a newcomer to the market. But if your intention is to write a course on niche research based on what you've read in guides and the responses you get from a forum thread, I'd urge you to think again.

        Unless you can bring some real world experience to what you write and teach, your course is likely to be just one of countless other similar products that offer little of practical value. It's your time, but you're going to find that approach a difficult, if not impossible sell.

          Actually, I already know what Steve was talking about. I use the FB Audience Insight Tools everyday for niche research, and I'm pretty sure this is what Steve was referring to when he brings up passionate hungry audience.

          And yes, The FB Audience Insight is great! I use it to seek out the most passionate niches and audience size. I can assure you this stuff is practical and real experience. I'm not a newbie btw.

            My bad. Should've realized your user name was simply an antithetic rhetorical device.

            Really! could have fooled me with the replies , Steve & Frank go out of their ways to help others in their own time and you give them attitude!!

            I does not matter you know the answer the fact that they gave you the right info is what counts and BTW I was the one who changed the thread title as I thought you were a newbie by the title FYI 2 word titles get nuked and I wish I had known you were not a newbie

    Noobz,

    IMO, you're trying to analyze the wrong thing. Don't worry about specific domains just yet. A domain will not tell you what you need to "discover" as the first step to creating a business online.

    What you should be doing is identifying what you can offer to a specific marketplace to satisfy a pressing problem or desire that people in that marketplace niche have expressed.

    Start with yourself. Do a self assessment to focus on your own talents, knowledge, experience, training, hobbies, education, and passion. Find an advantage or a strong inclination that you have that will help other people.

    Next, look for a hungry audience - a group of similar-minded people that are expressing a want/desire/need in their lives. It could be a problem they're having, a particular pain point, an unmet desire, or similar struggle they face.

    Then find the intersection of these two assessments. In other words, what strength, ability, knowledge, or experience do you have that can assist this hungry audience that you have identified? How can you help these folks to get beyond their problem or to realize their dream?

    Said in "marketing speak" . . . this process is simply to find a particular demand in the marketplace and then fill that demand or supply the solution for which you can be paid. That's the essence of niche research.

    Good luck,

    Steve

    Are you selling $500 canoes or $100 million dollar yachts?
    • If it's $500 canoes, you'll need a lot of traffic.
    • If it's $100 million dollar yachts, you'll need one paying customer this year.

    Hi

  • For niche research, you do not have to overdo this. Just a simple research on the market demand will do. For competition, you can always work around with this by doing research on the keywords that you can rank for and choosing a different angle (a sub niche perhaps?) to target a specific market.

      Exactly right!

      If that were true you wouldn't be asking this question:

      What I'd like to know is what is a good number I want to look for before I tap into this market niche?
      You'd be answering it.

    Since you read about this evaluation method in a guide, did it occur to you to ask the author of said guide?
