Great affiliate marketing niches for 2020
Finding a profitable affiliate marketing niche is going to be a big factor for your success online. But before we look at that, let’s look at what a niche is.
A niche is a particular subsection of the larger online market or in other words a group of people who are looking for similar products online. This product they seek could be a special type of physical or digital product or a type of service. What the affiliate marketer seeks to do is to provide the products that people in the niche desire. Without actually having to produce the items themselves.
Let’s look at some great affiliate marketing niches for you to consider going into for 2020 and beyond.
Health has been one of the most important niche markets forever it seems. Billions of people all around the globe are interested in maintaining or improving their health, so the sub-niches in the broader health category are not going anywhere at all in the future.
These sub-niches are what we call evergreen niches. Meaning that you will always have a market if you choose to make that niche the focus of your affiliate marketing efforts.
Some great sub-niches that an affiliate marketer can target in the health arena include:
The pursuit of love and happiness in relationships is another very good area for an affiliate marketer to hone in on. Everyone on this earth has a basic innate desire for love. It’s one of the core desires of the human psyche, programmed into each and every one of us as human beings.
It is therefore not surprising at all that it is one of the most sought after thing all over the world and the internet provides a huge market of people seeking for both informational and even physical products to improve and enhance their love life and their relationships. Some possible sub-niches are:
Handling a breakup
Making Money Online Niche
This one is also huge and is always in demand too. Yes, there are some of us who have more than enough money to take care of their every need, but in all honesty, the majority of us on this planet do not find ourselves in such a privileged situation, therefore, we always have to be looking out for that opportunity, that way to make more money to help ease our financial burdens or pay for that dream vacation or whatever else we may need.
In today’s day and age, there are a lot of legitimate ways out there to make money online, but sadly there are so many scams out there purporting to give you opportunities to earn money online. There are possibly even more scams out there than there are legitimate programs that actually deliver what they promise.
I have come across a lot of these scams in my time online, and i must admit that i have lost a bit of money to such no good programs. Luckily it was not a lot as i am very careful about where i spend my money. Some of us i know have not been so lucky.
However, all that stopped the day that i came across Wealthy Affiliate. I found that the program at WA is 100% legitimate and you get what you are promised and so much more. I truly believe it is the best place to be on the internet if you want to make money online.
Now as an affiliate marketer in this niche your aim is going to be to help people to avoid the scams and direct them to programs that you know are legitimate and can help them to actually earn money online. You can also introduce them to the best tools and resources available that will help them to make money themselves.
Some great make money online sub niches-include
Affiliate Marketing (definitely my number 1)
Travel is also another great area for affiliate marketing. Representing another huge international market. If you would love to travel then this is the niche for you. Apart from the money, you will be making as an affiliate there are other benefits that can accrue to persons who choose this niche for their business.
Some of these benefits include the opportunity to get free sponsored trips, free stays at hostels and hotels, free meals, etc. in exchange for writing reviews about the accomodations and you can even get paid.
You also get to meet lots of new people as you travel around and gain tons of experiences from the people you meet and the places you visit.
I would like to mention one particular travel blogger here. His name is Fredrick Marwa and I watch this guys videos on Youtube. I find them to be very entertaining and informative.
He is from Kenya and has been traveling from country to country continually for over 2 years now. I believe he does his traveling alone. Staying in available hostels and AirBnB accommodations around the world.
His travel Vlog is interesting because he immerses himself in with the local populations, visiting the places that the locals visit, sharing the same foods, etc. I will show you one of his travel Vlog videos below and you can say what you think in the comments section at the end of this post.
Here he is. Fredrick Marwa from Kenya Vlogging from Negril Jamaica
Here are some great sub-niche ideas for those interested in starting an affiliate travel blog.
Traveling around the World – This is where i would categorize Frederick Marwa’s Vlog.
Self Improvement Niche
All the niches i have been presenting here so far are among the most profitable niches to be found. The self-improvement niche, also known as personal development or self-development is also rated among the most profitable.
People naturally want to improve themselves to better their lives in certain areas. They want to live life to the fullest and to reach their true potential. There are lots of good products and courses out there to help them to reach these goals and as an affiliate, you will be able to assist these persons to achieve these aims.
Great sub-niches in this category include areas such as
Personal Finance Niche
These days everyone is faced with money problems. Unless you’re a Billionaire of course. Wait a minute, Even they have money issues sometimes too.
So we all are faced with financial problems from time to time. However, for most of us, our financial problems is a taboo subject. We don’t like discussing money and sometimes there’s a feeling of shame or fear if the subject ever comes up in discussions. So we shy away.
However, lots of people like to search online to try to find creative, innovative and helpful solutions to help them resolve the issues they have with their finances. Especially if the methods they read about have been tried and tested by other people and found to work.
Because of this craving for ideas to help solve financial issues this niche is quite profitable.
Pet Care Niche
Most people find their pets adorable. Whether it’s a favorite dog, or cat, that pair of lovebirds or even pet fish. We just love and adore our pets and we want to keep them happy and take the best care of them that we can. For that reason, Pet Care is a huge market worldwide and there are many products that you can tell people about as an affiliate marketer.
There are many sub-niches for this category, and even sub-niches for the sub-niches so to speak. Let’s look at a few of these.
Specific dog breeds
Dog food and treats
Specific cat breeds
Pet Fish Care
Pet Bird Care
The list of possibilities goes on and on
Fashion and Beauty Niche
Oh, the ladies just love this category. Women are experts at putting themselves together so beautifully that we men are in awe when they appear all dolled up in their finest. I dare say that every woman can find a sub-niche within this sphere, and it is one of their favorites from young girls right up to the mature woman.
For a lot of the sub-niches in this category, i believe that a Vlog works better than a written blog. Wondering why i say that? Well just do a search on Youtube for the term Make up. I just did and the search results presented me with a ton of videos done by ladies showing how they do their makeup.
These videos have had tons of people looking at them, many with millions of views and i even saw one that had been viewed an amazing 60 million times.
That just goes to show how profitable this category and it’s sub-niches can be.
Here are some of the sub-niches for this category.
Again the list of possible sub-niches is long and varied. Making it easier to find sub-niches that you are favorable to.
