Finding a niche can sometimes be a very daunting task to many who are just starting out. It doesn't have to be really. Niches are all around us and if you take a look at yourself you might even be part of a niche.
So how do we find a niche.
- Take a look at yourself - Is there something you're very passionate about? Something that you absolutely love to do that you would spend money on? Like a hobby? That could be a niche. Is there something that is a problem to you that you need to spend money on for a solution? Like acne, etc?
Many other people are likely to have these passions and problems so you could say that these are niches where people will spend money. If people spend money then that gives you an opportunity to make money.
- News and Trends - Is there something that people are talking about a lot at the moment? Whats on the news right now? Can you find situations related to these trends where people will spend money? If so, then you have a really hot niche in front of you. Here's a link where you can find stuff thats really hot in the news right now. Its updated hourly so you always know whats hot.
Google Hot Trends
- TV and Magazine ads and articles - You can get lots of ideas from looking at television and also from reading magazines. Some magazines even specialize in one topic (thats a niche) and some tv ads are for products specifically targeted to a niche. You can get ideas for articles by looking through popular magazines once you've found a niche.
The next step is to do some thorough research. Skipping the research phase is not recommended or else you'll end up with a hot topic, a hot product, a lot of visitors but NO MONEY.
