One of the best ways you can make money online is to create your own niche website. A niche website is site that is targeted to a defined audience and is based on one topic. Niche sites are built on a particular keyword. They are monetized using a variety of methods such as Amazon, AdSense, Clickbank, Commission Junction, CPA offers, Linkshare and Shareasale. This type of site has to include a lot of quality content.
There are thousands of niches that you can choose but you want to pick an evergreen niche. An evergreen niche is one that is not seasonal. The three biggest niche markets are:
- Health and dieting
- How to make money online
- Dating and relationships
There are several types of niche sites – physical product, digital product, or “done for you”. A physical product niche site will promote one physical product. Amazon is good place to find a physical product to promote. You just include a link to the product from your Amazon Associates account. The site should include product reviews, articles and videos. You can also create a review site for a particular niche instead of one product.
A digital product niche site can promote an eBook, a video course or an audio course. This type of site should include articles, videos and images. Clickbank and JVZoo are two places where you can find digital products. You can also create a digital product niche site with your own digital product.
“Done for you” sites typically include everything you need for the site including articles, pictures and videos related to the niche. Sometimes these sites also include monetization such as AdSense. You should always add some of your own content to these type of sites. You may also want to go with a seller that only sells limited copies of the same site.
You need to do keyword research to find a niche that a lot of people are searching for. You want to find keywords that people search for but are not too competitive. You can use specific keyword tools as well as other tools. Google trends can be used to see what people are searching for in Google. You can find top products in Amazon. You can also search for the most popular and profitable products in ClickBank.
As you can see, there are various types of niche sites that you can create. Once you have first niche site set up, you should clone that site to create additional sites in other niches.
