So far, my list is this:
- Office desk accessories
- Laptops/ Tablets for kids
- Bed covers (or weighted blankets)
I’ve checked out Amazon for potential products I could promote in my blog, as we said in part 4 of our case study. (You did it for your list, too, right? Right?)
Well, now check out the products you liked for:
- customer reviews
- overall rating
- number of orders – even though that’s relative. Maybe it’s a new product.
- value for price – do you think it’s overpriced?
If all these are okay, ask yourself: “Would I buy this?”. If the answer is yes, the niche stays on the list.
After checking the products on Amazon, here’s my new list:
- Tablets for kids
- Bed covers for kids
As you see, I chose bed covers for kids, because I found more interesting products for kids than adults. You can do this with other groups, as well. For example:
- a variety of jobs (e.g.: teachers, nurses, farmers – depending on the niche)
* The items I deleted from my list didn’t have any good products to promote.
Bur why Amazon?
Since Amazon is a very trustworthy place to buy products, a lot of people use it to order stuff every day. People trust Amazon, so they’ll buy easier something from there than from a site they’ve never heard before. That’s why promoting products from Amazon is great.
(Another reason is that Amazon’s affiliate program is very easy to join, but that’s something to consider later.)
Down to one
The last step is to narrow our choices down to one.
How will we do that? Of course, by using our Internet Marketing tips! To help our site rank a little faster, we’ll use a keyword-rich domain – meaning we’ll use a phrase people regularly search for.
To find which phrases people search for, we need a keyword tool. The one I use, Jaaxy, is a paid tool, but don’t worry, you won’t need to buy it. There is a free trial, so you can use it for free (for limited searches, but that’s all you need for now).
Create a free account with Jaaxy and we’ll see tomorrow how to use it to find awesome keywords.
