Finding Your Niche Business by Work at Home Grandma

Have your made an internet marketing plan for finding your niche business?

If the answer is no you’re in good company.  Very few potential entrepreneurs sit down and make a business plan before they begin the arduous task of building a successful business.

The first place to begin is to decide on the niche you will be promoting for your business.

A niche is a group of people looking for something specific.  When you determine what your niche marketing website will be it should be something people are searching for but also something that interests you.

This is the only way you will be successful in creating a website where products will sell or ideas will generate into services.

How to you find the perfect niche?

This is an easier question asked than answered.  There is, however, a simple way to determine what people are interested in.  Then it is up to you to determine if your interest matches theirs.

You begin by doing a Google search or using specific products to aid you in your search.  You should begin with a broad search and narrow it down from there.

For instance, you could begin with freelance work.  If you put freelance work into Google, you get the below results:

About 126,000,000 results (0.38 seconds)

As you can see this is a huge market.  Keep narrowing it down such as freelance work at home to get you

About 87,500,000 results (0.38 seconds)

  1. Upwork™ Freelancers – Pick From Our Diverse Talent Base

Or still further with freelance graphic work you get about 24,500,000 results (0.41 seconds)

In other words, as you narrow the field, you narrow the results and make your choices easier and more specific. 

Now if you enlist the aid of a tool such as Jaaxy, you will be able to determine exactly which niche would be most profitable.  As in the example below.

 

freelance work 4836 823 462 3 Search
freelance work at home 768 131 251 55 Search
freelance graphic work 40 7 230 82 Search

As you can see, using a service on Jaaxy can really improve how to determine the best niche to pick.  Too broad of a niche will bring you too much competition thus narrowing it down will give you the necessary interest without having such stiff competition in the search engines.

Freelance work has 4,836 searches per month giving you the potential of 823 hits to your site in a month but you have 462 competing websites which grossly narrows your results and keeps you from being on the first page of Google.

Freelance work at home looks much better with 768 searches a month with the potential of 131 hits with a lower competition of 251 sites.

Freelance graphic work narrows it down considerably to only 40 searches per month but 7 hits and only 230 competing sites. This might be too narrow for your purposes.

However, the end numbers of 3, 55, and 82 show the actual chances of ending up on the first page of Google.  The higher the score the better.

Using the Jaaxy tool you will be able to determine which niche will enable you to fall in better Google ratings thus helping your website’s ranking.

http://dmoz.org  is a tool that gives you thousands of websites and possible niches for your own website.

The biggest thing to remember when deciding upon a niche website is to determine:

  • Is it something people need.
  • Should you pick a product, a service or simply information.
  • Are you interested enough in this niche to maintain a website designed around promoting it.
  • Make sure there are many ways to increase interest in this niche and make it profitable

Your niche can be something so simple as how to take care of a Betta Fish or something more intricate such as what type of software is best for various online marketing processes.

Only you can decide the niche that works best for you; then you need to explore the avenues of that niche and determine which affiliate marketing is available in that area.  This too can add to your website.

  1. Thank you for reminding me that my niche is more than just what I’m good at or have a flair of doing, the reality is when my niche goes to market, I must find as many potential customer looking for it.

    I totally agreed with you to use Jaaxy tool to help find that somewhat elusive niche. I am still finding my niche but before that, I need to finish my Bootcamp courses. Cheers!

    • Fred, so glad you stopped in to take a look at the post. Yes Jaaxy is a tool I have learned to use on a regular basis. It is often surprising what people are really seeking out on the internet.

      Blessings to you.

  2. Hi Sandra,

    What a great tutorial on how to choose a niche! Sometimes people forget that the thing they love to do may not be loved by many people out there and may not lead to a profitable enterprise (if that’s what they’re looking to do).

    Fantastic information. Thanks!

  3. Hi Sandra! Great article on finding niches. I always forget about using moz.org yet it’s a really good place to help you find a niche! I used to use it a few years ago but like I said, I forgot about it! Thanks!

    • Hi Alanna,
      I’m so glad you stopped by the site for a visit. I’m the information was useful to you. Please visit again and let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you out. Blessings.

  4. Hi Sandra,
    If I want to do a niche which I am not interest in, would it be okay? Do you think I would make money on it?
    Is 500 competitions too much? What would be a nice figure to go for?

    I hope you can answer my question.
    Cheers,
    Stephen

    • Thanks for your question. If the niche is getting 500 searches it is probably very competitive. If you aren’t really interested in it you might have a difficult time finding content to place on the site. For instance if your interest was fresh water fishing the field may be too broad but fishing for walleye and how and where to find it would be niche with less competition than fishing in general. I’d do some searching in Jaaxy or google and see how you can narrow down the field. Hope this helps.
