You want to work from home and your wondering, “How to make money online for a beginner such as myself?” That was a question I asked myself several years ago. The first thing I learned after joining Wealthy Affiliate was that it all begins with a niche. Not sure what a niche is? Continue reading and I will explain the two-fold definition of a niche and how it is the starting point for you to begin making money online.
A Niche Is A Passion or Interest
I want you to take a few minutes and write down a list of things that you are passionate about. For example, one of my passions is helping other people learn and succeed with an online business of their own. I am also very passionate about sharing & educating others about the health and wellness of cats.
Now I want you take a few minutes and list a few things that are of interest to you. One idea I can think of off the bat is how can I make money online? If that wasn’t something that interest you, you wouldn’t be reading this post, Right?
Some people want to make it complicated and confusing. It is not! A niche in the online market cyberspace is two things. A passion or interest and an audience or group of people.
A Niche as an Audience
Once you have discovered you passion or interest, it is important that you now focus on a niche as a group of people or a targeted market that you are going to share your niche (passion/interest) with. My targeted audience with this website are people who want to start their own online business. Those who want to make money from the comfort of their own homes. People, like you perhaps, who want to be their own boss, try something new, or just make some extra money to supplement their income.
How to Target Your Audience
When I looked up the definition of target I had to laugh. As a noun I found: a person, object, or place selected as the aim of an attack. As a verb: select as an object of attention or attack. Geez, there is that word again, attack. Let me clarify here, we are not going to physically or mentally attack anyone BUT we are going to single out, aim at, and fix on a group of people that are interested in something specific! Here are a few examples of how to target your audience:
- Music: VERY BROAD. An effectively targeted audience would be those interested in let’s say – Music Production
- Abuse: VERY BROAD. An effectively targeted audience would be those interested in let’s say – Discriminatory Abuse
- Online Marketing: VERY BROAD. An effectively targeted audience would be those interested in let’s say – Affiliate Marketing
- Financial Services: Very Broad. A targeted audience would be those interested in let’s say Insurance or Investment funds etc…
As you can see from the examples above, you want to narrow your marketing efforts toward a specific product or service targeting our reaching out to a specific group of people.
