What is The Best Affiliate Marketing Niche?

If you are into or thinking of getting into affiliate marketing then finding the right niche is paramount. If you choose a niche that is over subscribed you will be pushed out by the established and wealthier affiliates that are promoting their products for this particular niche.

There are many products and even more niches so don't make the mistake of wasting all your time, effort and sometimes money on oversubscribed niches. If you like a niche like ‘relationships’ which is over subscribed, break it down and just deal with marriage or divorce. Don't try and cover all relationship problems as millions of people are doing this already. Take one part of relationship troubles like 'broken engagements' and focus on just that niche.

Another example is 'dog training'... another oversubscribed niche, don't bother covering all 'dog training' just focus on one part such as 'barking'. There are affiliate products that teach people how to stop their dog barking... focus on this one section of the 'dog training' niche and swamp the internet with information on this subject with links to your affiliate product.

My wife runs a blog that deals with Mirena Coil Side Effects and this is more popular than most of the stuff that I do because it is a big problem for some women and hardly anyone is dealing with this issue. So... some niches are better than others and it's important that if you are serious about making money from affiliate products or a product of your own that you choose the right niche.

There has to be a starving crowd (meaning people that need help) and the niche has to be fairly free from over exposure. A good friend of mine Travis has done a short video on this subject and the link is at the bottom of this post. If you are new to this it all seems a bit complicated... but it really isn't and there is plenty of help online. If you get this right and pick the right niche and a great affiliate product to promote that helps the people in your chosen niche (the starving crowd)... the world is your lobster :-)

Affiliate marketing is the easiest online business to work on and if you get it right, you can make great money very easily and like all business models, once you get it right... you just repeat it over and over and boost your income by doing more. All you need is access to the internet, the right niche, a great affiliate product and a blog with regularly updated content on your chosen niche. You can devote as much or as little time as you like to it, obviously the more you do the quicker you will start earning and the more money you will make.
