The KISS Method – Selecting A Profitable Niche

Selecting A Profitable Niche – Overview Follow Your Passion

Let’s start by defining the word niche. A niche is denoting or relating to products, services, or interests that appeal to a small, specialized section of the population or more simply a group of people with either a common problem or a common interest. If you want to boil internet marketing down to its bare essence, it’s essentially finding a niche, identifying what it is that people in that niche want and delivering it to them. The word niche and market, by the way, are used interchangeably. So, if I say that we found a great market, it’s the same thing as finding a great niche and vice versa.

In the following Training We’ll be showing you a step-by-step method on how to identify and select a niche. The niche you select should be centered around something you are passionate about and one that has both short and long-term profit potential. Many online marketers choose a niche because they see a certain amount of money in it, but they don’t go deeper than that and determine the true long-term profit potential of a niche.


What is a good niche?


Searching for a niche can seem like a daunting task

We can’t emphasize enough how the best niches are the ones you are passionate about but are also ones that could potentially generate income for you fast and have all the qualities that make them perfect for scaling into a five- or even six-figure per month business.

In this lesson we’ll show you how to identify what those qualities are so that you can pick profitable niches with confidence and accuracy and never have to second guess your decision. There’s nothing worse than choosing a niche, setting up a website, driving traffic then realizing the market isn’t so great after all or that you just don’t have much interest in the market and you don’t really want to be in it.

The niche selection method We’re going to be sharing with you analyzes a niche from all the key angles and naturally uncovers everything you need to know about the market before you enter it. This way you can move forward with total confidence and never look back.

Now, there are good niches and bad niches in the sense that some niches are very profitable, and some aren’t. It isn’t enough to simply identify a niche. Just because people share a common interest it doesn’t mean they’re willing to spend money on that interest. The key is to find a niche where people experience a lot of pleasure or a lot of pain.

Typically, the more pleasure someone feels in relation to something, the more likely they are to spend money on it if it increases their pleasure. Conversely, the more pain someone feels in relation to a problem, the more likely they are to spend money to solve that problem. And that’s because people buy based on feeling and emotion, not logic.

KISS Method Affiliate Market Analysis – Finding Our Unique Niche

This market research method is called The KISS Method Affiliate Market Analysis and it consists of four specific checks—What are you passionate/Good at doing, what are your skill sets/what do you love to do most, can my passion fill a need, and will anyone pay for what I’m offering? These checks ensure that you’ll pick a niche where you can make great money as an affiliate marketer.

We’ve adapted the KISS Method as a way to make things a little easier to understand.KISS is an acronym for “Keep it simple, stupid” and was noted and used as a design principle and training mechanism by the U.S. Navy in 1960. The KISS principle simply stated means that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore, simplicity should be the key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.

Well, this isn’t the U.S. Navy and we don’t think you’re stupid so for the purposes and our training the KISS Method acronym will stand for “Keep it Simple and Short”

Let’s get started.

    I am really passionate about making money online and I think that it can be profitable. However, I wonder that can I make it a full-time job? Or should I just stick with other niches like romance?

    • admin says:

      I think if you have multiple interest you can certainly can focus on more than one niche. The “making money online niche” works well in that you have acquired the skills developing your current niche into the making money online niche. It’s really a goof fit I think!

  • Lee Ann says:

    Thank you for explaining the KISS method as well as your tips for picking the rich.
    I had such a hard time determining what my niche would be. This would definitely have helped me in choosing.
    Do you have tips on narrowing a niche down. Example, If my niche were to be, make money from home, would you consider this to be to broad? How could it be narrowed down if need be?

    • Hey Lee Ann,

      It’s important to take your time and not rush the process in the beginning. Finding your long term passion is what is most important. Affiliate Marketing is not a get rich quick scheme and requires constant effort. Finding something you wake up excited about is what brings it all together and what make it fune! I like the making money at home as a niche because there are so many legitimate way to work from home and it allow us to bring value by reviewing these opportunities and letting our readers know the scams from the legitimate opportunities

      We also have the opportunity to promote Wealthy Affiliate as a work from home opportunity. It’s one of the best in my opinion as I’m sure you would agree 🙂

      It’s not alway recommended having more than one site in the beginning but I have started with my work from home site and am promoting legitimate work from home opportunities like Wealthy Affiliate

      I Also have a niche specific site built around another of my life’s passions as well. It’s a lot of work and keep me very busy…and very happy 🙂

      Please visit again Lee Ann and do not hesitate to reach out for anything you need!
