How To choose/make A Niche Site For Real – Make Some Money. I will cover how to pick and choose a niche site. How Amazon affiliate works. And basic tips.
In order to set up a niche site, you first need a product. It can be any product but, if you want to attract people it need to be something that hasn’t been covered extensively.
Check out this example niche site I created:
It’s a simple site showing how to use the Pomera DM100 a word processing device from Japan.
Why did I choose this device to make a niche site around?
Because no one in the world had done a review over it. Which leads me to tip #1.
If you are traveling in a different country keep your eyes peeled for anything that stands out. Maybe that country sells an expresso machine that can only be bought there. Think outside of the box. When I first heard of the Pomera, I believe it was from a random Japanese YouTube video.
The point is there are all kinds of products out there that haven’t been reviewed in depth.
If you find one then you can create a niche site around it.
Be the first to get and review a product. Tech reviewers a notorious for getting the scoop on the latest apple iPhone or gadget. This is because they know that being first means getting more eyeballs on them.
If you can’t be first, do it better than any other reviewer out there. If you watch reviews over products you will often see that the reviewer left out some important feature or add-on. Make a list of what you can do to improve you’re own reviews.
If you’re not the first to build a niche site around a product or idea, don’t worry. Pay attention to the comment section and see what people are talking about which i’ll explain below.
Keep an eye out for what people are saying in the comments. This is what I do. I watch products that I like and I scan the comments for problems people have or questions that weren’t addressed in the video or blog post.
For the Pomera DM100 niche site, many people from other countries were asking if the Pomera had the ability to switch between special characters in the comments. When I read this I immediately knew this would make for a great blog post to the site.
The point is, you want to pay attention to what people are saying in the comments so you improve or build a niche site better.
Set up an Amazon affiliate account. This is how you make money. I’m not saying that you will make tons of money at first, but it will get you started. After that, it’s all a matter of getting traffic which is another story completely.
Get a genesis wordpress theme. These themes are great and easy to customize if you have some CSS knowledge. It’s what I use for this site and my niche site. The reason I like genesis is because it looks good on mobile and I don’t have to program anything extra. It’s all built in and ready to go.
