How to find your first affiliate niche in 5 easy steps.
Don't you wish finding your first niche was easier? Well it is... Here's my tried and tested method used to find top notch quality niches.
Step 1: Think from HEART not mind.
Most people who buy anything buy don't buy it because they need it they buy it because DESIRE to have it. Don't look to fill needs but rather things that have an emotional connection with target market.
Step 2: Keywords Keywords KEYWORDS.
Finding what people want is not a difficult process all you need to do is see people search for... They will only search for something want even if they're just bored. If had to invest in anything a good keyword research tool would be it, not only will it save you many hours of hard work but also help you get best most accurate results as possible. The two research tools that I use are Wordtracker (www.wordtracker.com ) and Niche Database (www.nichedatabase.com), so go check them out. Then use these tools to find low competition/ High demand keywords and phrases.
Step 3: Let creative juices flow.
You don't really need to be a genius to find good keywords... here's a good tip, use a thesaurus which groups words by meaning not alphabetically and use that to find new words that might just be used. Another very good way to do so is this... but don't tell anyone I told you ;) Go to web and look up your target market and their favourite activities, search for their keywords in google. Once you've found top ten, right click on them and go to "view source". Now look in sites HTML text and I'm sure you'll find lots of good Keywords ( They are normally seperated by commas in a list )
Step 4: Show me money....
If you want to promote something you must make sure you're getting into a paying market. One way to do so is by looking them up in google and then checking how many addwords there are... people pay for prime add space and they pay unless it's paying off advertising there in first place. One application that will really help with that process is Adword Analyzer and will save you a lot of time. But manual research should never be neglected to check up on your competition.
