    In my experience, the amount of money you make is directly linked to a few things:
    - How consistently you take actions related to your business - SEO, content updation, promotion etc.
    - The quality of your website content. No theme or plugin can help you if people don't see value in your web content. There are thousands of price comparison websites out there. Unless you are able to add your own flavor, you won't be able to attract buyers in the long run. Any attractive theme just won't cut it. Try giving discounts, helpful tips, honest reviews (preferably video) etc.
    - Phone niche is both good and bad - it's popular - so demand is more. But unfortunately, so is the competition.
    But is you are able to get great content and promote it - like using social media media - competitions, coupons, discounts etc, then you can make some good money.

      Thanks for your comment.
      Most of the price comparison websites i have seen is multi niche site, i just want it to be a single niche to avoid much completion.
      What niche do you think I will switch? as am from Nigeria.

    SS,


    Let me be blunt . . . I see disaster written all over your plan.


    You will be entering the cutthroat, extremely competitive phone marketplace that will eat you alive! Phone and access providers are everywhere and they are dropping millions of dollars on their marketing. You, as newbie marketer, won't be able to survive this kind of competition.


    Solo entrepreneurs, IMO, do best by carving out niches that are not on the radar screen of multi-national corporations. IM is a wonderful way to make a living, but you have to be smart about "picking your battles" and focusing on marketplaces where you can enter with an impact and something valuable for the prospects.


    I don't see how you can offer something valuable in this area unless you niche down, way down, and offer some type of analysis, tutoring, or help to the prospects.

    If you are asking the question..."How Much Will I Make" you are not ready to launch the site.


    Have you done your market research yet?


    No one here can tell you how much money you will make.


    Do some market research.

      Thanks for your comment. I have done so many researches and found out that there are more competition on the niche. But there are not much competition if is Nigeria targets but the problem is that most of Nigerians don't buy online.

        If you focus on international calls, I think Nigerians abroad will be interested in your site. They should contact their relatives in Nigeria right? I think you should focus on them.

    Competition is a good thing.

    If the right strategy to get the traffic at low acquisition cost, you can definitely do it. One idea would be to run a contest and give a free iPhone. You can gets lots of pool of prospects to whom you can sell. If you got 5000 people on contest and 100 bought the phones; chances are you will make profit. At the end of the day that's what we want. People who buy phones will also buy cases for protection. You can buy bundles from alibaba and sell them at higher margin.

    Sounds like you built the product/site before selecting the niche. Just because you built the site, that doesn't mean "they will come". I have no idea how much money you would make with this site. You may have to scrap the site and start over - focusing on the niche FIRST, then giving them exactly what they're looking for.

    Because right now you don't have an idea of what to do. Never build the site or product first, and then go in search of someone to sell it to. You have it backwards.

    And you want to go into the weight loss and "health niche". Why these niches?

    You're doing it wrong.

    Don't start with a NICHE.

    Start with DEMAND.

    Where are YOU currently hanging out online?

    What are those places' traffic potential?

    What are those people's needs?

    How do they like being marketed to? (ex: content > review > aff links)

    Start with A TRAFFIC BASE first and everything will flow from there.

    Otherwise, you'll suffer the fate of over 95% of FAILED marketers. It's not pretty and is COMPLETELY AVOIDABLE

    Hey,

    I went through all the comments and I agree with them..

    Nowadays almost every famous niche has cut throat competition (and phone comparison is definitely one of them).

    I am not demotivating you, just making you aware that you need to do proper market research before you enter a niche.

    Putting up a phone comparison website is a good idea, but you must do something which makes you stand out from the crowd (create a sub-niche preferably..)

    Now answering your questions:

    1. For the money you will be making, let me very blunt. You would hardly be making anything in the first few months, until your website gets traffic and you can monetize that traffic, your website would not be making any money.

    2. Changing from one mega-niche to another won't change anything. You would again need to carve out your piece of the mega-niche.

    3. You can buy the theme from whichever is giving you the cheapest. there are multiple options available and you can choose whatever you like.

    I am not trying to demotivate you mate. But what you are planning requires a lot of hardwork. Be prepared to commit yourself for some hours atleast on a daily basis.

    With your consistency and intelligence you should see some results.

    Till then,
    Keep Hustling, Keep Winning!

    Shubho

    It Depends on the Quality of your content and also you should maintain an user friendly site ,which helps in people for the easy navigation from one page to other and asking some extra information should like card details should not be there as you people looses interest in filling these kind of details.

    Phone niche is very competitive so it's best to try other less competitive niche.

    1 How $$$ will i be making monthly?

    Depends Sunday on the energy, persistence and generosity of your actions.

    2 Will phone niche a good decision to make, is the niche converting or should I change to weight loss or health niche?

    Follow the niche you enjoy working. This is the niche you work patiently, calmly, for the joy of working the niche, where the greatest serving and earnings are.

    3 Where do I find a place to buy the theme and plugin at cheaper price?

    Don't think cheap; losers thing cheap. Winners think the best theme and plug in, for your site and brand.

    Google will be your best friend buddy Use it to find ideal matches for your affiliate site.

    Impossible to answer. How long is a piece of string? It depends how much effort you put into it.


    2 Will phone niche a good decision to make, is the niche converting or should I change to weight loss or health niche?


    The niches you have mentioned are the most competitive you could ever enter. If you have no experience then you might be better looking at lower competition niches that are easier to enter.


    With technology in particular, you'll constantly be having to add new reviews because products change so much and new models are launched all the time.



    3 Where do I find a place to buy the theme and plugin at cheaper price?



    If you're looking to buy a paid theme and/or plugin not from the original owner but looking for someone to sell it cheaper, that's not a good way to do business. Just start with a free theme and do the content yourself.

    1.) Your income is directly related to the work you put into it. There is no guarantee or promise of money that can be made by anyone here.

    2.) Phones may be good, shoes may be good,etc. I have had many try one niche and become successful, others 10x that to hit a winner. All comes down to testing at that point.

    3.) Hit up places like fiverr, upwork, etc. Many people may have the theme and plugins your looking for and install it cheaper than it would be to buy them out right.
