The Best Niche Website Ideas

The definition of “Niche”

Choosing a niche is such an important part of starting your online business, so in the beginning of this lesson Kyle explains exactly what a niche is. The training is done by Kyle who is actually one of the creators and owners of the Wealthy Affiliate platform! Did you know that the Wealthy Affiliate program has been in existence for over 14 years? So many of the thousands of members on the platform have been with the program since its inception.

Let’s talk “niche.” This is the subject of your website. This is what you are going to make your website about. You want to choose a niche that you are passionate about, the reason being that you are going to be immersed in this niche as you build and maintain your website.

definition of niche

Kyle talks a lot about your niche because it is so important. In the world of Affiliate Marketing, your goal is to get traffic to your website. Traffic is people. People who come to your website to read your content. Why would you want to pour your heart out onto your blog to have nobody read it? No, you want a lot of traffic to your site, and in order to get that, you have to be approved by the search engines who will send that traffic your way.

Search engine optimization

Getting that traffic, or those people, to your website is done when the search engines, like Google or Bing, send those people to you. Let’s say you search for something like “fountain of youth lifestyle,” Google is going to pop up results for you to view:

When people search something you are writing about, you want to have your website appear at the top of the results for that search.   That is what is called “search engine optimization.”

In this lesson, Kyle goes over how you are going to become an expert in your niche so that the search engines look at your site as credible and relevant and want to display your website on page 1 when people search for keywords related to your niche.

I want you to begin to think about your niche and what you might choose.  Kyle stresses in this training that you want to enjoy this venture, you should choose something you love for your niche, something you are passionate about!  He talks about how he and Carson, the other owner and creator of the Wealthy Affiliate platform, are passionate about teaching people how to make money online (as am I).

I chose this niche regarding coaching for internet marketers because I have been a teacher my whole life, and I have been running my own online business for many, many years as well! It just made sense for me to choose this as my niche.

Making money in your niche

One of the things you will come to appreciate about the affiliate marketing business is that you really can make money in just about any niche you can think of. Wealthy Affiliate University will give you the tools and resources as well as the knowledge, and they train you to go after your dreams.

I’ve seen fellow marketers on the platform with website niches that range from diabetes to perfume, from children’s tablets to dog kennels. When I say anything, I really do mean anything. People are making money by providing solutions to their readers. People search online for information to help them, and as a blogger (affiliate marketer), you are there to provide that information for them.  First and foremost!

The way you make money is by offering products that provide the answer or solution your readers are looking for. If they are searching for ways to look younger, you may present the best facial creams to make their skin look more youthful. If someone is curious about CBD Oil and what the best ones would be, you could research and present the best company to buy that product from.

Wealthy Affiliate training style

How do you learn best? Do you prefer written text to read from or do you learn best from video tutorials? Either way you prefer, you get both with the Wealthy Affiliate University training. Kyle will train you with written directions, screen captures and discussion, and then he includes a video to reiterate the training and show firsthand how things are done!

Born in Texas, raised in upstate New York, I have been marketing for my entire adult life.I have decided to share all the information I have gathered on what works in affiliate marketing, and what doesn't because I want to let the world know that working online gives you the freedom to work from anywhere, and that is exactly what I do!

Starting out can be tough, I know, so I will also be sharing lots of free resources to get you going.I am dedicated to providing this information to my readers, and I hope you always feel free to reach out to me.

Thanks for visiting my page!


  1. You covered niches perfectly! I have seen so many websites where the creator didn’t know what they wanted to do, so they ended up trying to make it about EVERYTHING! You might get some readers that way, but it’s so much better to break your blogs up into specific niches. That way you know who your readers are, you know what they like, and you can make content that they’ll enjoy. That helps you as the creator as well.


    1. The indecisive affiliate, lol.  Sometimes I see websites where they really just can’t make up their minds, but they are not doing themselves any favors by doing that.  You need to focus your attention on one niche at a time on a website.  – Babs 

  2. Before I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I have never heard the term niche before, if I have, I don’t honestly recall. 

    So, joining Wealthy Affiliate, the first thing that’s thrown at me, is this niche business, at first, I thought I’d never get the hang of it, because, it was a super duper foreign word. 

    But, a few days later, after joining WA, I can say I’m now a pro, with the term. 

    1. That’s one thing I love about Wealthy Affiliate is that they teach you all the terms you need to know in an easy-to-understand format.  I learned so much from them, and I continue to learn through their weekly live training and the affiliate bootcamp modules.  – Babs

  3. Selecting a niche is one of the most important tasks that an affiliate marketer has when starting out with online marketing. Get the wrong one and you will be disappointed and frustrated as you see few results from many hours of work creating a website, writing engaging copy that will draw in traffic, and design marketing campaigns to sell your related products.

    Of the many people that I have helped over the years, this is the one area that most have a problem with. They do not understand the significance of the task, and they are in a hurry to just get something started. Doing a little research prior to that is essential, however.

    It seems that Wealthy Affiliate has a rich and deep set of training materials to help marketers o through the necessary process, and I am sure it has saved countless people from making a mistake as they start out. The tools and training that are available will point them in the right direction.

    You have rightly highlighted some of them in this post, and I can only add my experience to this by saying that the Wealthy Affiliate platform has been a crucial piece and part of my online business journey. Being a member and using the tools and taking the training works. It is that simple!

    The fact that they offer a free 7-day trial is a testimonial to the confidence that the owners have about their platform, and it is backed up by the success stories that are to be found within the platform members, to include myself. It is a great way to get a viable online business off the ground.  Thanks once again for the excellent and eye-opening post!

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more, the niche is critical, and people really need to find something close to their heart that they can make money from.  So important!  – Babs

  4. To attain success in a business both offline and online, one must first understand what a niche is and the best niche that suits the person. I got a lot of knowledge about what a niche is and how to choose the right one from wealthy affiliate and I have attained a lot of success since then

  5. Thanks for writing out this lovely article and I must say its a must for everyone to read and digest. I began to understand the word niche when I was a network marketer but I have the full understanding of this word when in joined wealthy affiliate. 

    Your niche might be what interest you most. Your niche will makes you stand unique among others. This article worth reading by every newbies in affiliates marketing. Regards 

    1. Thank you, Adam!  I believe choosing the right niche is one of the most important aspects of this business for sure.  – Babs
