Been going back and forth on what niche I should choose when starting a website which eventually be monetized (mainly affiliate marketing). When it comes to the affiliate part I believe that for example Clickbank and Jvzoo are good because of their great commissions. Amazon if perfect as well but the low commission of 4-15 % means you got to promote a shitload of products to actually make a decent buck. Anyway, narrowed it down to three different types of niches or topics if you will, all with personal pro's and con's:
- Health and fitness: Focusing on how to stay healthy and good exercises mostly.
Pro's: A lot to write about, I have some personal experience worth sharing, a big public to reach out to, a lot of products to promote on chosen affiliate sites.
Con's: Big competition, cannot call myself more of an expert than the rest of the bloggers out there, not my biggest passion but still interesting for me.
- Sci Fi games site with a weekly story written by me:
Pro's: Something I really burn for, cannot write enough about sci fi games, would be great to publish my own sci fi story, competition not too big.
Con's: Not too much to sell, Amazon offers more but the commission rate sucks.
- Wealth and money managing: Focusing on how-to guides regarding money managing and making money.
Pro's: Lot's to write about, lot's to promote on my affiliate sites (clickbank and jvzoo) and it's an idea that can be expanded in the future if all goes well.
Con's: Seems like a large competition, same as health niche; not the best of the best.
So, what do you guys think? What should I do? Just write any tips or ideas that you have, I'm all ears!
