In our list of niche markets that drive passion and create top 10 affiliates, we will not be looking at things at all from a money first perspective. The fact is if you are only here for the money you will find it harder to start a business, become profitable, and earn a life-changing wage for your work.
Holy Crap Batman, did you say a desire to make money makes it harder to make money? ARE YOU CRAZY???
Here in the United States, you will find among a list of niche markets that the leading Entrepreneurs are people who are not looking for money as much as they are to solve issues related to a niche they are passionate about.
That’s not to say there aren’t industries of necessity like making underwear that many would find it hard to find a love for but what makes the difference between Haynes and Fruit of the Loom?
A drive for quality and comfort comes to mind when you buy and wear the products. Profitability has to come second so someone has to be thinking, “How do I build the better mousetrap?”.
F.R.T.L., please don’t build Mousetraps into your boxers it was a figure of speech. Regardless of bad jokes and such, I will tell you someone has to love a great feeling nice and roomy set of drawers.
Passion drives invention, invention drives more invention which drives competition. Passion sets those competitions apart and decides who the leaders are in that list of niche markets.
Invention starts with an interest in something, that is called a niche and that interest becomes a passion or love of doing for someone who then sees a solution to problems in that niche.
You do a thousand things a day and never notice the small flaws yet someone notices minute mistakes in Baseball cards, miscuts in dollar bills and that silk makes softer boxers than even fine cotton.
In seeing these issues and finding solutions we become business owners but it has to start with enough niche interest to see opportunity.
Without Interest of Passion, a list of niche markets is as plain as a flat white wall. You just won’t see the money, and will always be late to the changes your customers demand.
As an Online Business Owner, you likely fall into one of 3 categories each with its own list of niche markets that drive passion and profits.
The categories most frequented by online entrepreneurs are Consultant or service provider, Online retailer or drop shipper, and last but most common is Affiliate Marketer.
The consultant will look to channel expertise gained in an offline pursuit that began with the words I want to be X when I grow up most likely.
An Online Retailer is best served serving one industry than trying to compete with big-box stores like E-bay, Amazon, Wal-Mart, or Overstock, These companies have those non-focused anti niche segments filled.
Small retailers are best advised not to compete with these mass marketing juggernauts and instead to focus on refined niche ideas and the products these giants have left off their shelves like close personalized service.
Affiliate Marketers are my favorite because they have the same passion as a consultant with the flexibility to promote any niche they choose and spend less to get established doing it.
An affiliate marketer is driven by passion but has no shelves or warehouses to stock so they can have all the products of Amazon and Wal-Mart combined as a place to make money.
Like the other two though we are served best by our attention to detail in a niche we are passionate about.
Business online and your list of niche markets is always pushed by content. Lots of gooey content.
To write all of these articles, record countless podcasts, create these videos, and so forth as invention works to factor in the next big thing in digital communication you will still need that flawless attention to detail. You will find in a niche you love doing that the problems will come like water and the solutions are all worth dollars.
A big example you will find in the pursuit of making money at anything online is that you will need advertising to cut down on your time marketing and marketing to improve the results of advertising. In another article, I will discuss the difference between the two.
The point here is both are not likely in your passion wheelhouse or are you experienced with so you either put a thousand hours into learning the. Maybe hundreds of hours a month into doing them, or you pay someone to make it happen like maybe a CONSULTANT?
Passion is a driver of sales too. People look for retailers and authors who love the topics they are using from the list of niche markets.
The passion will always show in how you write the content of your site as nothing cookie-cutter will suffice in selling. NO FREAKING CONTENT ROBOTS, I want a retailer who loves their business and their customers.
The following is our shortlist of niche markets that drive passion. It is a list of niche ideas that come from the blogs of myself and my students over the past 17 years.
Model Trains are a small area of interest in today’s modern world but the products are still of deeply passionate interest to those who share this niche addition. Some model trains might be $20 a set but others are $2,000 or mere per engine or cars on the train.
There are branded units like Coke Christmas Train Sets and Texaco miniatures that have dual niche interest and can demand prices o0ver $10,000 each piece or train set.
Baseball Cards are one of my interests and I already own the domain name GrandSlamCity.com which will likely be devoted to connecting sellers and collectors for future generations where passion is strong but time is tight. just imagine someone fulfilled a passion connecting me to that stellar domain name as well.
There are domain flippers who buy domain names as virtual real estate and then build starter sites and resell them as ready-to-go websites for a serious profit.
Some of these sites and domains have sold for as much as 7 figures and a friend of mine recently sold a 1-year-old site with around 150 posts for over $40K. In all, she had made over $50K in the life of the site which isn’t bad for a 1-year investment in growth.
Skin Care. While the niche is saturated with sellers many lack passion and newer specialty niche in the wider niche markets in the category. Prime examples are organic skincare and CBD oil supplements that rejuvenate skin for a healthy look.
Fitness is massive as everyone has a different method of getting or staying fit. From weight loss to Pilates and diet supplements to energy drinks there are nearly a half-billion items on the list of niche markets in the4 fitness category alone. What a great way to combine Health and Money.
Also on our list are Cars, NASCAR, Advertising Specialist, Search Engine Marketing and SEO services, and those who help people learn to write blogs like this one and make money.
There are basketball blogs, Hockey Playoffs, the Olympics, and Gymnastics, cooking, and so much more. If you are a realtor you might check this post out on things you can do with or without a license in the real estate niche to make money online.
