Find Our What Your Market Want

I bet you probably have seen this thousand of times when you started your affiliate marketing business. Still, I see many affiliate marketers are still having problem in this area. So, today, I am going to share with you 2 channels I personally use to find what the market wants.

But before that, let's recap on what you might have seen,
  • Do market research in your target
  • Find out specifically what they want
  • Are there any differences between what they want with the what the market is offering
  • How much are they willing to pay to get what they want
  • Check out your competitors, their offers and pricing

I think those are the basics you need to do when you are looking for your niche.

Then, where to start looking for your niche?

When I want to research about the niche, I usually go the particular forum to see what people are looking for. If you are affiliate for digital camera, simply key in "digital camera forum" and join the forum as member.

Read the thread to see what issues the members are facing and you can ask specific question to understand better what they need. You are in that niche, you know better than me how and what to ask.

You can even start a poll to get the members to vote on your research. For example, you can start a poll about how much are the members are willing to pay for a digital camera. Give them a few ranges and monitor the polling over certain period and then you will know which kind of digital camera you should focus on.

From the forums, you can also link the members to your website through your signature. Once they are there, offer them something valuable so that you can capture their email addresses for further contacts. Remember, most people are sold after they have seen your offer at least 7 times.

The second channel I use is to go to to see what people are trying to achieve.

When you reach the page, just look for the goals that are listed under the "need inspiration?" tag. Simply click on the goal and you see a list of 10 smaller goals. Indirectly, you have just gotten 10 ideas for your niche.

If you want more, you can click on the avatar on the left side of the page. Once the page load into the particular person's goal, scroll to the bottom of the page to see what people from around the world want to do.

Another tip for you, the bolder the font, the more people wanted to achieve that goal hence, the bigger the market for your product.

I hope the 2 channels help and you have no more excuse to say that you don't know where to start looking for your niche.

Create your affiliate marketing success,
