Target Niches for your Online Business – How to Pick One

A Worldwide Audience to Address

When you sit down and think about all the people in the world that would like to make more money, you could pretty much include just about everyone.

Every person from every little corner of the population could use extra cash and that is really the target audience. So in essence, your target audience consists of the close to 7 BILLION people that live in this world, 3.4 billion of them have high speed internet and would love to have access to a platform like Wealthy Affiliate.

That is a pretty MASSIVE target audience, so within this post I am going to give you a hand with some more targeted examples of audiences and show you exactly how to break them down.

Pretty big and pretty broad right? That was intended to prove the scale of the market that you can promote to, and within this section we are going to explain smaller more niche target audiences and also let you in on some ways in which you can research and market to these audiences.

When many affiliates begin to work on their keyword and industry research for Wealthy Affiliate research, they typically think of the most obvious marketers that are highly relevant to the services offered at Wealthy Affiliate.

The main audiences that come to mind are:

Making Money
Work From Home
Internet Marketing
Affiliate Marketing
PPC Marketing
Email Marketing

These are fine and they are definitely targeted, however marketers typically run into a wall when they attempt to promote under these top-of-the-niche keywords as they are very competitive. They convert, but they are sooooooo competitive. It would probably cost a fortune to do PPC on them for that very reason.

More Targeted Niches

Because of this, we recommend also venturing into other smaller, but very targeted niches. I have included a list of these below:

Entrepreneur Programs

These are all hot topics and highly related to what is offered within Wealthy Affiliate. Anyone looking for help in any of these areas can easily get help and get training within the Wealthy Affiliate community if you look a little deeper you find that there are even more than the obvious.

Demographics to Target

These can all be target audiences and I am going to show you how to elaborate on these. However, there are complete demographics of people that should not be forgotten about.
