Are car niches not interesting?

26 replies
The automotive industry is one of the biggest industries in the world, cars, insurance, aftermarket, detailing and much more. Still I not see much WF being active in it.

WHY?

EDIT:

There are a lot of possibilities

Car parts (affiliate programs)
Car detailing (affiliate programs)
Car reviews
Bannering for car companies
Used cars
Car loans (affiliate programs)
Car insurence (affiliate programs)
Car repair guides
Car manuals
Car magzine subscriptions (affiliate programs)
Car video's
Adsense
Car garages and bodyshops
Car rentals (affiliate programs)
Car hollidays (affiliate programs)
Car products (affiliate programs)

etc

      In fact there are a lot of products that are sold over CJ and other affiliate companies.

        There has to be a niche for that industry. It is too big. Probably a lot of competition in it, too. Google some auto blogs or auto websites. Surely, you can find some sites, replicate their format, and tweak your content. Just research it and you will find out.

            Well for me it's the perfect niche, but I have the feeling that I'm here all alone in the car niche. It's my breat and butter. I also have no problem with sharing my idea's. But then their must be people to share it with. )

            I not worry if other people will copy my concept, it is allmost impossible.

            How I make monetize it? I find advertisers, work with affiliate programs and adsense. I think it is one of the most interesting and fun niches to work in. But i seem to be the only person that think so.

              Is this a bad thing?

              You've found something that you like, something that works for you, something that you consider fun! Why worry that you don't see a lot of others in the niche?

              I'm sure there are folks who are working in the niche but aren't being vocal about it - they probably have their reasons.

              Don't get overly concerned that you think you're alone!

              The best to you,

            This is not true at all. There are a TON of auto industry affiliate opportunities.

            Yep and CJ is just the start. So many it's hard to even list them all.

            No niche is too big. Big is good. I'd rather work in an industry with millions of buyers than one with hundreds.

            I know a couple of marketers who are killing it in the car market, but they focus on specific niches such as: auto insurance, how to boost your Mile Per Gallon (MPG), how to make simple repairs and save thousands, and I know of one marketer who is 20 years old, does very well with his affiliate business and used his profits to start an offline auto detailing business (it's 100% outsourced).

            So it's definitely interesting, I just think most people don't want to talk about it in a public marketing forum.

            RoD is right and keep in mind this is an internet marketing forum. Most won't reveal their niche unless it is internet marketing.

            Google Adsense, affiliate products, CPA, etc. Pick one.

              There are many people here in car-related niches.

              Maybe some don't want to say. Others do. Have you tried the search function? There was a post made, mentioning car insurance marketing, exactly half an hour ago, in another thread.

      Good to know.

      I read someone saying that they made a lot of money with a car-parts website.

      Most niches can be profitable, if done well.

    I'm in the motorcycle niche and it's been very lucrative for me over the years, I know it's not cars but it's still vehicle.

    Along with that I've also seen others in niches related to RV's, ATV's, and other vehicles.

    One of the affiliate type deals I have done in the car industry is when someone was trying to sell a car, I went to them and told them if I could sell for the car for xx,xxx they'd give me 10% and they agreed. It took me about 2 weeks to sell the car, but it wasn't a lot of work and knowing that it worked.. I know the car industry could do well if people were going after it.

    One thing I will note is that ebay does really well with car parts and they offer an affiliate program.

    How exactly would a website owner make profit off of the auto industry?

    There aren't digital download products. And you can't sell a car on a website (well you can, but it's not common).

    And most automotive dealers probably don't have affiliate programs for relatively tiny internet marketers.

    Actually, I don't share anything I make good money at. Now cars I will say I do not deal in. I don't do insurance any longer and never was a car type person.

    I do know a few warriors that do Car related stuff, One does oil and the other one does parts.

      That is pretty cool, running your car on tapwater, I can imagine people like to know how that works.

    Yes this is a huge industry with tons of money floating but still don't see anyone on WF doing stuff like this may be because people on this forum don't find this an appropriate place or maybe they have some other platform where they are active.

    I would not worry too much about not seeing people in the niche here, as a lot of people, as others have said, will not share what they are doing.

    But, you are interested in the niche.

    And it is a big niche.

    So, my advice would be to not worry about what other people are doing--and do your own thing.

    And in this case, it is the car niche.

    Hope this Helps

      One aspect of this market which has been nearly completely under the radar here on the forum for at least a decade or more is quite a substantial amount of MLM recruiting done by veteran marketers who are primarily targeting the newest or floundering members.

      Despite the open and persistent hostility against MLM in general on this forum, it is thriving exceptionally well virtually undetected.

      For example, Amsoil and other networking marketing companies in the automotive aftermarket are particularly attractive to growing numbers of people who are experiencing disappointment (or worse) in much of the highly flawed yet prominent so-called "traditional" marketing.

    It's a big niche but needs to be unique.

    Most car guys are only interested in going to what they know for their favorite websites. That's because there are so many of variety these days you simply can't go to all of them.

    Take for example Drive Trip, (Jeremy Clarkson's and his 2 other friends) version of a social media for cars. It's not doing too well, slowly becoming irrelevant. Why? Cause everyone is already on their favorite platforms such as IG and Facebook.

    Maybe because Internet marketers don't share much about the car niche here in WF. It's a pretty big industry, but I think only the ones with passion for cars are willing to promote them, because you have to know ALL the details.

    I mean, people are very particular with the cars, car parts and accessories they buy... so you have to be able to answer their questions, not only market the product!

    It's a great niche. A couple of years ago I was collecting a list of forums, and car forums were one of the most numerous out there. Many are run by hobbyists and I saw all kinds of monetisation methods. Sponsorship of certain forum sections was quite popular, e.g. a wheels sub-forum could be sponsored by an alloy wheels manufacturer.

      i would think this would be a good strategy for a savvy internet marketer. Do a roll-up of several similar sites and bring the expertise of monetization to them for a split. As you say, many of them are just hobbyists for the love of their niche but not good internet marketers for monetization
