There is a lot you should take into consideration when starting a new online business, in order to have the best chance at success.  When launching your online business, you must look at every angle and knowing how to pick a niche is one of the most important angles of all.  

Finding your niche and making it a point to also find the best keywords for your niche isn't any different. 

Here are three easy steps you can take that will help you pick a niche - successfully.

Step 1:   
KEYWORDS

When it comes to discovering your niche, looking for keywords is the fun part.  With many keyword tools out there such as Ubersuggest and Google's Keyword Planner, it's super easy to search for these keywords and ideas.  These free tools allow you to research search volumes for particular keywords and find other related keywords. 

You will also discover the competitiveness of such keywords. 

You want keywords that pull in, a minimum, of 1,000 searches a month. 

Pay attention at how competitive the keywords are but keep in mind that competition is NOT a bad thing.  You want keywords with competition, just not ones that are overly competitive.  

Which brings me to step #2.

Step 2:   
COMPETITIVENESS OF YOUR KEYWORDS

After discovering some keywords in your niche market that you think may be profitable ones and that you might want to work with, you can now start looking into their competitiveness. 

One way to do this is by using Google's search engine. 

Simply type your keyword into the search bar.  This will show you how many other pages are listed for that specific keyword. 

This method will also show you how much pay-per-click (PPC) competition there is too.  So pay attention to that as well. 

Step 3:   
PICK A NICHE

Based on the simple research you've done with the previous two steps, you now have enough information to make an informed decision about wether to move forward with your niche idea or not.  

As I mentioned earlier, pay attention to the number of PPC ad's that come up during your research.  If there seems to be a lot of competition but you notice a small amount of PPC ads, then you can safely move forward with your niche idea knowing that you won't be wasting your time or energy on one that is not profitable. 

Once you’ve decided to move forward with your niche, you’ll need to select a domain name that fits your niche. 

Finding your niche is just the beginning.

Once you’ve found the best niche for you, based, not only on your research, but your interests and passions too, now you can move on towards creating your content, building your links, conducting email marketing, and so forth.  

Have fun with everything, but remember this is your path towards achieving your success - so while you're having fun, also take it serious.
