The secret to success in marketing isn’t so secret. If you’re looking for a profitable niche, start with powerful evergreen topics like money, relationships, and health, then ask yourself what interests you. Find a sub-niche that draws on your personal expertise, like careers, investments, online dating, or meditation. The 10 golden niches listed below have helped others turn a profit; use them to spark some creative thinking of your own.
1. Online Classes
Online education is flourishing, as more and more schools set their sights on a digital future. From YouTube tutorials to fully accredited degree programs teaching everything from baking to quantum physics, there are endless sub-niches to claim.
Insurance keywords are highly searched for and are among some of the most expensive AdWords. Consumers almost exclusively use the Internet to get quotes and purchase auto, homeowners, health, and individual technology insurance. Become a voice of authority in one of these areas, and the visitors will flock.
In today’s market, people are carefully weighing the risks and advantages of opening lines of credit. They want to know how their credit scores affect loans, home buying, and long-term financial freedom. With countless companies offering “points,” miles, and other incentives, people are turning to experts to tell them which credit card is right for them.
More than 40 million Americans have tried online dating, making it a billion-dollar (and growing) industry. Users are searching for advice on how to craft a fetching profile, how to land a date, and which sites are worth their money.
Mankind will never cease its quest for the fountain of youth. People are willing to try anything if it promises to banish crow’s feet and restore beauty.
6. Stress Reduction
Yoga, meditation, massage, acupuncture, retreats, positive thinking – those are just some of the increasingly popular alternative therapies for our burnt-out, stressed-out culture. The Internet has become our source for everything we seek; the meaning of life is no exception.
7. Weight Loss
This one’s a no-brainer. The weight-loss industry isn’t going anywhere. New diets, supplements, exercise equipment, and health gurus pop up every day. Stake out a niche writing about the latest in flat abs, green tea, or going Paleo.
This one may seem out of place, but you can use the Internet to tap into the obsessions of conspiracy theorists and fringe- science enthusiasts. Big Foot, alien abductions, and government experiments continue to pique our curiosity and capture our imaginations.
No one goes anywhere these days without scouring the web for deals, discounts, ratings, and travel guides. Airfare search aggregators have long since eliminated travel agents, and smartphones have brought the world to our fingertips.
Video games and online gaming are an addictive and ever-popular realm of entertainment. In gaming, there are nearly as many niches as there are gamers. If you can cater to one gaming community, you can gain loyalty and even build user-generated content through blogs and forums.
