Niche Finding Question

9 replies
hey all -

Quick niche question...and I'm sure there is a product out there to answer this

For the more experienced IM's that are looking for niches, do you actually care about the competition or do you just go into the niche anyway because it has traffic and interests you?

For example - if you like cooking....well...that niche is pretty much saturated but so is everything underneath cooking. So do you just pursue it anyway because you can buy traffic?

I guess the real question is how do you still find niches when pretty much the majority are occupied!

    IMO you must consider competition. It is one of the most important factors of the game.

    I guess the real question is how do you still find niches when pretty much the majority are occupied!
    You've got to think outside of the box. For example, back when I wanted to buy some occupation gift domains, everybody had grabbed ones like doctorgifts.com, electriciangifts.com, etc. so I thought about it real hard. I thought about how people searched on the net. How else would they type it in. It dawned on me that many people would type in "Gifts for Doctors" or "Gifts for Nurses", so I bought all of those. Nobody was thinking that way back about 4 or 5 years ago. This enabled me to grab a lot of high value names.

    Go into a quiet room and spend some time thinking very creatively. Let your mind go. There is an unbelievable amount of things still out there to discover and make money from. People are doing it every day.

    - Good luck!

      There is no such thing as a "saturated" niche. Usually heavy competition means the niche is very lucrative, and there always are marketing techniques to beat out the competition no matter what the big hitters are doing.

      Thanks Giftys - I like the thinking outside the box because ultimately it does come down to what people are seeking not what we think they are seeking....

    I love the competition! Because we make most of our money in huge markets. If you want to make a ton of cash, you need a big market with competition. On the other hand, just starting out, you can go with a smaller niche.

    Hi,
    Choosing a profitable niche is the key to online success. If we pick a keyword that has got good amount of searches but is very much saturated then we will end up with nothing in hands. Not exactly NOTHING IN HANDS, but we will have to put in loads of extra effort and time in that niche which can range from 8 months to one year or above. Would you want to go for such a niche from which in order to extract some money, you have to put in your fortune before?

    A proper keyword research is very important before finalizing the keyword for your site.

    I just created a FREE EBOOK on choosing a profitable niche that you might want to read. This Ebook has been liked by many members on other forums, I am sure you will like it too! Due to less posts, I can't post a link here. I am PMing you the link ..


    When you are in the online business, always remember that you have to make sure that you do better than your competition. And what if your competition has already put in ages of efforts in it? Are you willing to put in your life in it when you can easily choose other low competition keyword and reap profits within just 2 - 3 months??

    However, everything depends on how much effort you want and can put it. You CAN beat the competition but you gotta check how much time you have with you!

    Nowadays there's competition en every single niche.. but you have to start with the smaller ones in order to succeed..

    start small and grow big, know what I mean ?

    Don't go for the ultra competitive ones, you will work in vain!

    I do not care about the competition.

    I am involved in just one niche and that's internet marketing. When you enter a niche make sure your are passionate about the subject and also, make sure that people have problems in that niche. That way you will make much more money.

    Also, do not go into small niches, because you will not be able to develop a deep backend, follow up and so on (except if you are using SEO as an affiliate).

    If it weren't profitable to get into saturated niches, everyone would just close up shop and go home. You have to compete to get into most niches.

    Don't make "cooking" your niche. Break it down to sub-niches and attack one of those instead. If you're interested in promoting actual products, there's cookware, kitchen appliances, etc etc. Tons of opportunity, especially if it's a passion of yours and you can easily write good content for it.
