Today, I am very honored and delighted to have my good friend Dee Power of Your Financial Independence Day to share with us on “Article Marketing”

Dee Power

There was a contest done recently and it looks like many subscribers have similar questions on article marketing.

She is going to guest post 5 posts (including this) So here goes (and make sure you digest every bit of it)…

Selecting Your Niche Day 1

If you don’t have a website or an established blog your first step is to decide on a niche. A niche is a small subset of a market. For example: “pets” are a huge market, “dogs” a smaller market, dog food smaller yet. “Natural homemade dog food” would be a niche market.

Here’s another example Wedding – Wedding Apparel – Wedding * Dresses – Budget Wedding Dresses. And another Health – Lower Blood Pressure – Lower Blood Pressure Naturally- Lower Blood Pressure Naturally for Women. And another Jewelry- Gold Jewelry- Gold and Gemstone Jewelry – Gold and Gemstone Ankle Bracelets.

I’ve found that it works best for me if the niche is one I already know about or one I want to learn about. Don’t get all tangled up in picking the perfect niche with no competition and lots of searches. Just get started. You can refine the niche as you go along.

Get niche ideas by going down to your local grocery store. Look at the women’s lifestyle magazines and see what topics are popular. Saving money, weight loss, get out of debt, looking younger, and parenting are all evergreen topics. Remember to take the niche and narrow it. Get out of debt is a huge niche, how single Moms get out of debt is a smaller niche and more easily targeted. Or perhaps you might choose how college students can get out of debt, or seniors.

Go on the Internet and find newspapers’ websites.

Today, New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, and your local newspaper. Scan the headlines. What are people worried about? The real estate market fluctuation, protecting their money, how to sell their house in a down market, sports, and avoiding foreclosure are all exploitable niches. Go to Amazon and see the titles of the bestselling books. Look at the bestselling products in the category you’re considering. These days Amazon sells just about everything.

Visit www.magazines.com to browse through a huge selection of magazine categories.

Go to Ebay and look at the most searched for items or the most often used keyword phrases. Or go here eBay Pulse: trends, hot picks, cool stuff and popular searches on eBay.com

Google Groups – One of the suggestions later on is to post on groups as a way to promote your blog or website. In this case look for groups with a lot of members in a broad topic that interests you.

Yahoo Answers – People post questions that can be answered by anyone. Look for topics that have lots and lots of questions posted.

Or go to What’s Buzzing? You Tell Us! Top News and More – Yahoo! Buzz for the most searched for topics.

43 Things is a site where people post their goals. You can get an idea of what topics are of interest and that can help you decide on a niche with a built in customer base.

Once you’ve selected your niche make sure that people are interested in buying products or services for that niche. Raising Discus fish may be a fascinating niche but if no one wants to buy products about raising Discus fish it’s not a good niche to be in.

    These are great tips for anyone looking to break into niche marketing. These same research tools are recommended by other “niche marketing” experts like Chris Freville and Kim Roach. Kudos!

    Thanks for the tips and the sites. I really hadn’t thought about how much more to narrow my ideas on the niche that I will be picking.
