Deciding which affiliate niche you want to get in will be one of the most challenging decisions that you will find yourself having to make when starting an affiliate marketing business.  Conduct your due diligence, do some good research. 

If you find yourself struggling to make a decision, here are 5 steps you can take.

Determine Your Interests and Passions

Create a list of your interests and passions, stick with 10 for now.  

When you start an online business, it's going to be challenging and more likely than not, you're going to get tested. 

If you're new, start off in an area that you care about so that you don't lose motivation when you face challenges.  

You will face challenges.  We all do.

Determine What Your Target Market's Problems Are

Once you've created your list of top 10 interests and passions, narrow them down.  

What problems does your target market have, what challenges are they facing.  You must determine this - you can do so by conducting some research.  Once you've made this determination, figure out what you can come up with that will help solve those problems.  What can you create or offer that will make their problem easier to deal with or handle. 

Study and Research the Competition

Competition is good.  Don't allow the presence of competition steer you away.  As a matter of fact,  the presence of competition shows that you've found a profitable niche. Go to your competitors websites, analyze them, see if there's any opportunities for you to stand out from them. 

Determine the Potential Profitability

By now, after completing the previous steps, you should have a pretty good idea about what niche market you want to get into.  So now you need to get an idea about how much money you can potentially make in your chosen market.  

A great place to start is ClickBank.  When you visit their site, start off by browsing the top products in your niche then take note of the price points in the products that are being offered. 

It's not a good sign, if you don't find many (or any) offers in that niche.  In that case, you should consider a different niche. 

Take Action

There isn't a perfect process for finding an affiliate niche that is profitable, but these steps will help get you on the right path.  Start your website, and creating your content once you've found and confirmed that you're chosen niche can be profitable.

Anyone can create a successful online business, with the right mindset.
