The biggest frustration and challenge that I hear from new marketers is “I can’t decide on a niche!”
Choosing a niche can be very hard….
And yes, it is important for several reasons. A niche needs to be something that people are going to search for (otherwise you wont get traffic). Yet, it can’t have a lot of competition or else someone else may get that traffic. And the most important thing is you will be writing about this niche for a long time, especially if it ends up being a money maker.
No wonder affiliates get stressed over the subject of niche marketing.
Okay yes, choosing a niche is very important when it comes to affiliate marketing and building a website. But I think people put way to much emphasis on choosing the perfect first niche.
Guess what?! It doesn’t have to be perfect. I mean we are all here to learn right. So I say relax and have fun with your first niche. You can even call it a “practice Niche” if you want.
Here is what I want you to know and understand…
You can make money in just about any niche. So really don’t make yourself crazy. Just find something that feels right to you. Find something that you can relate to and you think will be easy for you to write about.
And then remember that a niche can be changed at any time. You CAN change your mind! Really you can. So just let this first niche be your practice niche. And you may decide to keep expanding on it or you may want to add more niches later. What ever you decide is up to you. There are no hard rules in affiliate marketing. But I think if you learn what works with this practice niche, you will then have all the tools and knowledge you need to start other niche websites.
So stop getting stressed and just find something of interest and run with it. Narrow it down to a small niche market and build a blog or website about the niche. Use this niche as a practice niche.
Now don’t you feel much better?
You can relax knowing this niche doesn’t have to be permanent. Just pick a niche of interest to you. And get rolling…
Now that you have your niche, you can start researching that niche and learn about your target audience.
