Pick the right niche for your website.
What is a niche?
A niche market is the subset of the market on which a specific product is focused. The market niche defines as the product features aimed at satisfying specific market needs, as well as the price range, production quality and the demographics that is intended to impact. Wikipedia
I told you about taking your time to get to know what you are good at (your talents or strong points) I guess you already have your list of talents written on your note book, so by this time you know what you love to do and what people think you’re good at.
Getting to know your strong points will help you to know what niche you are, there’s a niche for almost every talent people have, think about any talent and you can thing about a niche for it.
You’re good at car mechanics – how to change your car oil, how to change a flat tire, how to wash your car, and many more thing to do for your car.
You love to cook – how to cook dinner in 30 minutes, how to plan your week meals, how to cook low carbs dinner, how to cook Italian (Mexican, French, etc.), how to make dinner for 4 under your budget, etc.
You love to travel – how to travel and make money, how to book a hotel for the best price ever, how to travel to (fill the blank) for 500 dlls., how to get paid while you travel, what you learned while you travel, etc.
You speak more than one language – learn to speak your second language, best ideas to learn a new language in three months, easy conversations to help you to understand this (____) language, etc.
You can think about anything and you will find a niche there, people have some problems to solve in every niche, people need to know what to do to make life easier.
Think about a parent who is thinking about how to make a family dinner in 30 minutes and get everyone happy, I think if he or she find your website where you share your secrets about how to solve this problem, you will get a client.
What are the best niches to make money on the internet.
I could tell you that anything you can think on might be a niche where you can make money from it.
But today, the best advice I can give you it’s to take your time to work a little bit more about your niche and how can you work on it to do better on the internet.

Time to narrow your niche so you can achieve your goals easier.
Lets talk about “Cooking”.
Everybody eats three times every day, and here you can find all kinds of problems you can help to solve, just think about one and you will be right.
But if you start a website about Cooking, the probabilities of finding a website about cooking are like millions and millions of website already about it.
You need to be more “Creative”
If you start a website about “cooking breakfast” then you will find less people among those who write on the internet about cooking that only focus on writing cooking for breakfast.
So, you need to think about what specific problem you want to work on about “cooking”.
Here are some ideas:
- Gluten free recipes
- Low sugar recipes
- Cooking for a small family
- Cooking for a big family
- Vegetarian cooking
- Plan your meals
- Home cooking
- Traditional cooking
- Cakes and cup cakes
- All kind of cookies
- Decorate cookies
As you can see, in a niche there can be as many “micro niches”as you can ever think.
To give you another example, let’s talk about “websites”, as many people wants to start their own website, this niche is one with many opportunities of success, but you need to find what “micro niche” you will be working on.
- Start your website
- Niche website
- How to start a website to make money

- How to become an authority of your niche
- How to make money from on your own business website
- How to make money from Pinterest

Think on one “micro niche” and you will find one, if you don’t find one for your talents, just go to Google and type your talent with “how to…” and you will get some ideas to work on.
Why to choose a “micro niche” for your website is important.
You can’t do everything by yourself, once you start working on your website, you will find it’s easier to be specialized, you will find there’s many people interested on your micro niche, and it will be easier for you to work on it and start making money from it.
When you start your website, you will be working hard on it, you will be writing content and the more you know about your niche it will help you to do better, and your visitors will know you as an authority and they will go back to visit your niche and learn more from you, then it’s when your business will begin!
Great content + traffic = you have a business here!
You don’t need a website with millions of visit everyday to make a good business from it. You need to get the right people (clients) interested on what you do and what you have for them to solve a problem = your product or your service.
If you get even 100 people who have a problem to solve with your product, you have there a business!
I hope I gave you a more clear idea so you have more basics to work on your website.
