Choosing a niche for your business can be a little daunting. A question I see a lot online is “how do I choose a niche” or “how do I know which niche is profitable” and many similar questions. Choosing top niches for online business needs a little thought.
I often hear people advise other people saying “what are you passionate about” or “what are your Hobbies” Then start a niche about your hobby or your passions. Although these niches may turn out to be profitable more research should be done before just going with a topic you are passionate about.
Do Your Research
You must first research if there is a market for the product or service you want as your niche. Plus, you need to know if there are people out there willing to buy what your niche has to offer. Also, you may have a fantastic idea for a niche and have the enthusiasm to go with it but without customers to buy your products you may as well bang your head against a brick wall.
Find out what people are already buying and fill in the gaps. For example:
Say your niche is ‘Golf Clubs”. What gaps can you find within the niche “Golf Clubs”? There are plenty e.g.
- Women’s golf clubs
- Golf Club Bag Accessories
- Golf club sets
- Used golf clubs
- Golf Equipment
- Golf Iron Sets
- Men’s Golf Clothing
- Wilson golf clubs
What you need to do is fill in the existing need for a product. “Golf Clubs” is far too broad a niche, so you need to narrow it down. Just by doing some research on google, amazon, or with a keyword research tool and any other means you can think of, you can come up with plenty of topics.
So after you have narrowed “Golf Clubs” down, do some more research on the topics you have narrowed it down too. Here is another example: Let’s take “Mens Golf Clothing”
- Golf Shirts
- Golf Trousers
So now you have narrowed it down even further to a specific item. Now do some more research on 1 specific item you feel you want for your niche. eg “Golf Shoes” so these sub-niches are the ones you need to focus on. Why? The competition will be lower and it won’t be as hard to be ranked in the search engines. “Golf Shoes” is still a broad niche you can narrow it down again into let’s say “Women’s Golf Shoes” Do you see where I am going with this.
Something you need to take into consideration when choosing a niche as well is will you be able to write enough content on the subject. You don’t want to pick a niche where say in 3 months time your content will dry up as there is no more to say on the subject. But also you want a narrow enough niche that you will not have too many competitors and will get good rankings in the search engines. It a fine line so be careful in choosing a niche.
Here are some top niches for online business
Almost all the top and profitable niches fall into the 5 main categories you see below.
1. Money (Business, Employment, Marketing, Investing, Gambling)
2. Health & Fitness (Medical Conditions, Diet & Weight Loss, Addictions)
3. Dating & Relationships (Sex, Love, Family, Marriage, Relationships)
4. General Interest (Hobbies, Skills, Activities, and Interests)
5. Religion & Spirituality (Belief, Christianity, Atheism)

The above list is by no means a comprehensive list. Just imagine how many niche phrases you could come up with by narrowing these niches down again and again. You could have enough subjects to make thousands of niche websites.
If you can think of a niche that is not on the lists above, please contact me either with the contact form below or in the comment box below. I will add them to my lists for other readers to see.
My niche is “making money online” and “working from home” these 2 niches go hand in hand. I have sub-niches too that I can use from the above 2 niches. I promote a program called Wealthy Affiliate, which is an affiliate marketing training platform that also has an affiliate program attached to it. So I can promote the training platform to individuals that want to learn affiliate marketing and I can also promote this platform for its affiliate program. So it’s a win-win situation.
When looking for programs to promote within your niche, try and find the ones that give you the most value as in Wealthy Affiliate. Good Luck.
I hope you enjoyed this article and I look forward to speaking soon.
