Micro Niche Affiliate Marketing In The Works


If you have been following this blog you would know that I’ve focused a lot of effort on Micro Niche Adsense and have achieved good success so far. While I’ll still continue to grow my adsense sites, since I follow the successful XFactor’s Adsense Master Course I’m now working to create my first micro niche affiliate marketing website.

Is  Affiliate Marketing Over Saturated?

There are many Internet Marketers who feel that the affiliate marketing industry is over saturated at the moment, but I prefer to see it in a different perspective. Affiliate marketing is not over saturated, it’s just that your niche market is too competitive for you to make any real money.  You have to seriously re-look at your ‘how, where and what’ to promote. So if you have a make money online niche or a make money blogging niche, it can be an uphill task to promote your affiliate products successfully in them.

Here’s the solution:

Micro Niche  Affiliate Marketing

This just means creating a micro niche website which specifically targets at a smaller niche market. The truth is that every market has its problems that need solved  and people are willing to pay good money to get rid of the problems that affect them. If you can identify what kind of problems are affecting them and provide them the means to solve their problems, you just had it made. In an affiliate marketing perspective all that you do is use your keyword tool to look for specific products and market to these people so that they get to fix their problems fast.

Here is the plan…

Step 1 – Find products you think can solve a problem or lots of people search for

There are many places that you can go to but the most obvious one would be Clickbank since it is well established and there are thousands of top quality products to choose from. The key is to find products that you are really interested in and you know that people are ready and willing to put their money in .

Step 2 -Keyword Research

  • You can use any free tools to do your keyword research but I used Micro Niche Finder since it has successfully found the right profitable keywords for me in all my micro adsense sites.
  • For every product that you chose in Step 1, enter the most appropriate keyword that relates to the product.  So if your choice was a stop snoring product then your keyword to be used is “snoring”. The micro niche will list down all the suggested keyword ideas for you. It’s that simple.

Step 3 – Evaluate who are your competitors

  • Your keyword research is not complete until you know what competition you are up against with in your niche. For more details on how to do this you can refer to my post “Micro Niche Finder Makes Keyword Research Fun” and how it tells you the ‘strength of competition’.
  • The strategy as you might have guessed is to find keywords that have low competition and yet have sufficient traffic searching on these keywords.

Step 4 – Pick Your Domain Name

  • Your domain name should contain the main keyword you have selected om Step 2.  Not only is this good for SEO but good for visitors’ experience because it is also the name of the product.
  • Personally my domain name extension preference is .com, .org and .net in that order

Step 5 – No more one page website

The one page website wonder is probably a thing of the past when people could create in hundreds these one page websites and still make money from them no matter how skimpy they may look to the visitors. I figured you must have a minimum of 5 pages (excluding your required pages of privacy, about, contacts).

Step 6 – Link Building

Needless to say you have to do your backlink building to your new website to ensure you rank not just on Google’s page one but top 4 positions before you can get any decent traffic.

    I agree, it's time to go to the micro level. You'd be surprised to see just how profitable some micro niches are and without nearly as much competition, you can dominate them.

  8. peterlee says:

    @Murlu: Looks like we have similar passion. Keyword research is still the most important and determines how successful you will be.

    Hi

    I agree that very small websites probably don't work anymore. I try to make my websites something that will genuinely answer the readers query – even if it is just a very specific one.

  15. I agree going micro-niche is surely getting more responses than the over saturated niche markets.
    Thank you for the informative view.

    If you’re into niche marketing of any kind, then one of the biggest problems you’ll likely have in your business is finding and researching not only profitable niches, but ones that are easy to compete it as well. That’s always been one of my biggest problems, and to a certain extent it still is. Thanks for your cool tips and suggestions.

  17. peterlee says:

    @Abdullah: It's my pleasure. Thanks for dropping by.

  18. peterlee says:

    @home business networking : My pleasure and thanks for dropping by.

  19. Tolls like MNF and Market Samurai really make our job as affiliate marketers so much easier, but it won't do the work for you.

  20. Creative Web Design says:

    A niche depends on how hard you look for a business in this slow economy. there are many online businesses that do not require a software to be found. try using the search bar…

  21. Creative Web Design says:

  22. Nick says:

    Hi Peter,

    Do you think John Xfactors course is still relevant with opportunity's still available.

    Or perhaps that ship has sailed???

    I only ask as I know it was released sometime ago.

  23. peterlee says:

    @Nick: Yes this course is still relevant. I bought this course for 9 months and I have been practicing what I've learned even till today. That's why everyone says once you purchased this ebook you don't need any other book. It's that comprehensive.

  25. getting the correct niche is vital, i signed onto a product last year and after thousands of clicks on the ads never made a penny, its important you find a product that people want

  26. peterlee says:

    @make genuine cash: Absolutely. Keyword research is key to success in niche marketing.

  27. Great Work Peter,
    Only fact is that anything you are selling must fit one of two categories, it must solve a problem or fulfill a need.!!

  28. Win Money says:

    Yea I think finding a product that solves the problem is the best solution. Also products that people already use and buy but are just looking for a better brand. Those products seem to work great.

    Nobody wants to buy expensive ecofriendly laundry detergent which is really expensive with shipping if they can get the same thing at Walmart.

  29. peterlee says:

    @Win Money: Yes Brian, solving a problem is probably key to why people buy a product or service. Products seem to be most sought after and that's why focusing on products in niche marketing is good.

  30. peterlee says:

    @Affiliate Recruiting: Absolutely. solving a problem and fulfilling a need are top reasons why product niches are doing so well.

  31. I’ve seen a massive increase in this trend. Lots of people are trying to create tons of micro niche blogs just for adsense and although it does work out, its getting a bit saturnated.

  32. peterlee says:

    @Personalised Gifts: Well the key is to find those niches that do not have too much competition. There are still a lot of untapped niches if you care to spend sometime to look for them.
