Q: I’m very curious if you happen to know what are really good current niches to promote or if you cannot release any tips? I’m looking into Commission Junction products. I plan on promoting my fat loss campaign from ClickBank next year.
A: Some niches that are currently hot include dating, dog training, gaming, web hosting, and weight loss.
You can try focusing on any of those, but bear in mind that they are not secrets, so they’re pretty competitive.
One thing I’ve mostly done is focus on niches that truly interest me. That keeps me interested in the sites. I continue working on and promoting those topics that I like.
I have fallen into the trap where I chased trends, and then lost interest.
This played out a handful of times where I did all of the grunt work to set up a site, and then didn’t want to bother with it after investing time and money.
If you are able to stick with it as a gun for hire and chase the niches, you should give it a shot. Be sure to have some unique value proposition – original content or something else that will give people a reason to visit your site.
Whichever way you go, there are a couple things you ought to do:
- Build a list – you need to continually remarket to interested people to keep bringing them back to your site. I use AWeber for my email lists.
- Be a specialist – when you decide on your niche, drill down to be more specific and become the specialist in that sub-niche. Work the long tail.
Either way I think you can do well if you really dedicate yourself to it – either some topic that interests you or a popular niche.
