Don't get me wrong, I've looked all around Amazon and while it is nice to browse it does not help at all. I've also used the keywords tool and PR rating to analyze every single niche I find because something is always wrong with it.
Example: I go into the Pet Supplies section. I choose cats. Do I stop here? Let's say I do. So I have cat supplies. Keyword tools shows 3500 exact searches with high competition. Obviously I move on since it's a high comp right?
Moving on. I go deeper, so next on the list is cat cages. I use the keyword tool to analyze. 2500 exact searches with high competition. Obviously, I back off and go deeper. Ok, so we have the Merry products pet cage. Using broad search, google shows 2500 broad searches with high competition, and 390 exact with high comp as well. I say heck no because 390 exact searches it way too low, right?
And I'm back to square one. Having narrowed my idea all the way down to pet cages, I have to backtrack because pet cages with 100-500 exact searches a month will convert into nothing, right?
And this happens with every other single niche in the pet supplies department. First it's too broad with high competition, then branded exact searches which are dominated by the official company website, and then comes the micro-sub niche which I cannot take since it yields too little searches. So when is my time to jump in?
Can someone just guide me on how to find a niche specifically and not that "go on Amazon" thing that the 3 WSOs I bought have offered? They just tell me to go to the best sellers in each category but all the best sellers have high competition already and brand-name websites.
This gets me so frustrated because it's like I can't complete step one even. Thanks
