When I came upon that little word - Niche - I wondered, “what is this thing called a Niche - and most importantly, can I find my own niche too?
What is A Niche
Well, a niche, is a service or product, that fills an unmet customer's need - that is more of a speciality. You are not competing with the masses for a sale on an ebook or an affiliate tool. Instead, you carve out a small corner of the market for yourself on the Internet.
Well, the definition was simple, however, finding a niche that I felt comfortable with was going to be a chore, because I wanted to avoid the affiliate programs - and if possible find a company that privately carried their own affiliate program - without the quota's and the many rules.
How to Find A Niche
When I started looking for a niche market, I started to make a list of my hobbies, what I liked to do, what I was interested in and what I was familiar with - to help me brainstorm. If this little task does nothing else, it will definitely give you an eye-opener to who you are.
Anyway, when the dust finally settled I realized that I wanted a niche where it would assist others - perform a service of some sort, and would compliment my current website. Not very decisive, but I had a direction.
Then it happened, just by chance, or maybe it was divine intercession - anyway, I received a personal email from one of the assistant manager's from DentalPlans - stating that she liked my website and wondered if I would be interested in becoming an affiliate.
I looked at their website and the affiliate plan - and I knew that this affiliate program was for me.
