Niche Market Research (Part 3)

It’s easy to profit from niche markets if you know how to get started. Niche markets are the backbone of affiliate marketing. If you’ve done any kind of research into this exciting field of business, you’ve probably come across the term more than once. Affiliate marketers depend on niche marketing to bring them steady incomes over the long-term, and those who ignore niches do so to their financial peril. That said, if you want to profit from niche markets, you need to know how to find them. Fortunately, this can be done in just a few easy-to-follow steps.

1.  Choose a general industry that interests you, such as health, weight loss, dating, shopping, etc. You’re going to whittle this industry down to a tiny component.

2.  Ask yourself what sub-markets exist within the industry you chose. For example, weight loss might have the sub-markets of people who want to lose weight through diet, people who want to lose weight through exercise, or people who want to lose weight with no effort.

3.  Choose a product to promote that falls into one of these sub-markets.

4.  Keep whittling things down by asking yourself what type of people might be interested in the product you’re promoting. For example, people who want to lose weight through diet may want to do so for swimsuit season, to prepare for a wedding or high school reunion, because their doctor told them they had to, or to keep their spouse interested in them sexually.  These are your potential niche markets.

5.  Find which one of these niche markets is the hottest by entering the keywords you think would be associated with it into Google. Surround the keywords with quotes. When you get your search results returned to you, look for results with less than 10,000 organic pages returned, but with three or more paid ads on the right-hand side of the page. These are hot markets with little competition, and you should promote them.

Remember, you can profit from more than one niche market at a time. Set up several campaigns to keep a steady flow of money coming in.

Find Profitable Niche Markets (Part 1)

Knowing how to find niche markets is one of the keys to affiliate marketing success. Many beginning affiliate marketers choose to focus their efforts on broad categories, such as clothes or jewelry or money making products. However, there is so much competition in these broad categories that it’s easy for your efforts to get lost. Further, when potential customers do internet searches for broad terms like these, they’re usually in the very beginning stages of their buying cycles. People usually do lots of research on products before they buy, narrowing down their search words each time to be more and more specific, until they find exactly what they want. You want to catch people at the end of the buying cycle, once they know what they want and are ready to purchase it.

The more specific you can get with your market focus, the better chance you’ll have of attracting buyers. So, instead of focusing on “wedding dresses,” focus on a very narrow market, like “maternity wedding dresses” or “spring wedding dresses.” It will be easier for your marketing efforts to stand out when you use niches like these, and your chances of making a sale will be much higher.

It’s also best if you can find niche markets that have a lot of hungry buyers. In fact, the more desperate the buyers, the better your chances will be of selling to them. Finding hot niche markets with ready buyers isn’t difficult. All it takes is some basic research. Scan the headlines of magazines and see what themes develop among the article titles. Chances are, these are the topics people are interested in. Then, search the Internet for information about these topics, using narrow search terms. If you get lots of results returned to you, including paid ads, then you’ve found a hot niche.
