How to target a niche.

Now that you are thinking about a niche market, we are going to go step by step through one strategy for how to target that niche.

Select a niche.

Niche researchTo select that niche we have  find what people are eager to buy, and then give give them what they want.

Here is a list of some potential niche categories:

  • health and fitness,
  • religious and spiritual,
  • finance, investments and trading,
  • travel, trekking, camping, going to the sea, or may be the mountains,
  • food, cakes, or fish, or meat, vegetarian peoples,
  • people who love safari, the desert, adventure.

These are just a few of the potential wider fields in which you can find a niche. There are plenty of them everywhere.

Looking  in places like clickbank marketplace, in general directory groups, or at amazon.com may help you find a category to investigate for your niche. There may be groups in your favourite social networks that can give that idea to get started.

Another place for finding that big idea for a niche check out infomercials or browse through the magazines on the news-stand. If they sell, there’s a market.

Work from the big idea.

Take the first general idea, then go to a more specific idea.

For example you are interested in martial arts. You could try a niche in self defense, then refine that further to self defense for women. By looking through the category you can select from there  continue until you find the niche which will make you profit.

Using tools to help select a niche

There are free tools on the web to help you to find your niche.

In  Alexa you can find the traffic rank for websites in the niche you are considering, and how many visited that site per million visitors.
Finding related keywords will help you find the niche, and the Google Adwords tool is one way to do that. Checking the keywords that you use will identify those related keywords to help build and guide you in your chosen niche. By using Google you will also be able to find out if there is a lot of competition in your niche.
This all takes time, and the preparation time should help you establish your niche. In fact it may be useful to develop three ideas or more. Test all your ideas, and  keep the one that you find most profitable.

    I like the way you are explaining niche targeting step by step using absolutely free tools already available online. I think I was confused when I was searching for my targeted niche because I was looking in general never thought about more focus.

  • Barnali said,

    I think Travel and food (especially the health food) are two most important niches people are looking for and this I have not realized before. But one thing I just want to know from you. What if a person has gained expertise in one niche but the other niche would be successful at that moment, how would he become successful entrepreneur at that time?
