My Top Secret* Niche List

*Granted, it’s no longer a secret now that I’ve shared it with you. Oh well, enjoy!

 

Over the years I’ve been compiling this list of niches one by one. Some of them I added because they’re obviously hugely profitable. Others intrigued me. A few of them look pathetically small, and yet they are being used by people who earn 7 figures a year in these exact niches.

And all of them are worth looking into when choosing your next project.

I’ve also added a few notes under the main categories to give you more ideas.

 

LOCATION Based – Create a site that highlights all the happenings in your area. This is awesome for bringing in local advertisers. Suggest that your advertisers use a direct-response type of ad, such as “Mention this ad to get 25% off.” This will show them exactly how effective advertising on your site is.

  • Your home town
  • Your county, state, province or area (if it’s not too big)
  • Your country (if it is small in geographical or population size)

 

MONEYsites that teach how to make money through investing can command high dollar for advertising. These sites and their corresponding emails lists sell for high prices, too.

HEALTHthis word ‘health’ encompasses so much that it can be difficult to know where to start. Just remember that you’ve got to niche it down or you’ll never be successful. All health to all people won’t work. But natural remedies for people with Type 1 Diabetes will work. Weight loss won’t work. But weight loss for women over 40 via the keto diet will work. You get the idea.

  • Weight loss
    • For Women – This market is TOO big, subniche this down into age group or some other demographic
    • For Men – Great idea to focus exclusively on men, their insecurities and problems with excess weight
    • For Overweight Kids – Tricky, you might partner with a doctor for this one
    • For Teens – The motivation to lose weight here is HUGE because of peer pressure and wanting to fit in
    • For Specific Body Parts
      • Tummy Fat – This market is HUGE
      • Upper Arm Fat – Women over 45
