How to find Niche markets as an affiliate marketer?

I will proceed with the previous example so you fully understand the sequence and flow. So, we start searching for supplements or home gym products that can help out with burning belly fat. The reason I would pick supplements over gym products, simply because they are recurring income for you (if it is a good product).

  • Customer Base reviews.
  • Company profile.
  • Research the founders & business owners.
  • Use search engines to find out more about the product and the company such as Google.
  • Check for competitors.
  • Check if they are running Google or Facebook Ads by them or through affiliates.
  • Check communities reactions through advanced search
  • Check Instagram & social media for any hashtags
  • Check for email support
  • Check for the demographics (to understand the behavior)
  • Email support or customer service
  • Check the demand on the niches you chose
  • To understand your Niche products and the values of each competitor product, by analyzing the values, processes, conditions, future, growth, expertise, presence, size, marketing efforts, and any statistics for the niche chosen.
  • Broader market research in forums such as Reddit and Quora
  • Message one of the testimonials by searching them on Google & Facebook to see if they are real or fake

“The framework I found, which made the decision incredibly easy, was what I called — which only a nerd would call — a “regret minimization framework.” So I wanted to project myself forward to age 80 and say, “Okay, now I’m looking back on my life. I want to have minimized the number of regrets I have.” I knew that when I was 80 I was not going to regret having tried this. I was not going to regret trying to participate in this thing called the Internet that I thought was going to be a really big deal. I knew that if I failed I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not ever having tried. I knew that would haunt me every day, and so, when I thought about it that way it was an incredibly easy decision.”-Jeff Bezos (Amazon CEO)

How to pick a product in Market places?

A niche product idea for the sake of our example is Okinawa flat belly tonic in the Click bank market. In January 2021, 327 affiliate marketers were promoting this product, but over 440 now promote it. This is a clear indicator that the product is great, but with so many marketers out there, there is likely a fierce amount of competition among them as well. However, you can always be creative on how to promote? Where to promote? When to promote?

  1. Clickbank
  2. Jvzoo (only digital products)
  3. Digistore24
  4. Shareasale
  5. Warrior +
  6. Market health
  7. Avangate
  8. Cj affiliate
  9. Rakuten Marketing
  10. Amazon Associates (very low commissions)
