First Quarter 2017 Niche Picks

I am admittedly a bit behind on my niche site goals for 2017 already, but that is mostly because I took the first week-ish of January to evaluate some personal decisions and spend quality time focused on recharging my own internal batteries. I’ve been working at planning some niche PLR content to share with you as well some new niche sites to build. If you’re looking for some ideas, here are 12 broad niches that I’ve considered for projects this first quarter of the year….

  • emergency preparedness (aka preppers)
  • coffee makers and other coffee products
  • vintage kitchenware (and other vintage kitchen/dining decor)
  • backyard landscaping (DIY projects)
  • home wi-fi routers
  • specialty diet cookbook reviews
  • skateboard maintenance and DIY builds
  • home bars (equipment, glasses, decor, drink recipes)
  • resume writing and templates
  • hemp and cannabis news or products (growing industry = growing traffic)
  • pet technology (or rather tech for your pets; ball throwers, fitness trackers, water filters, cameras, and more)
  • turntables and vintage vinyl

Now that you have your niche thinking hat on, go out there and create something awesome 😉

Are Beards a Big Niche?

Back in January I made a list in my niche notebook of niche topics that I wanted to keep an eye, things that seemed trendy or new and possibly trendy. Beard accessories and tools was one of the things on that list – and it seems to be growing. When I say beard accessories I mean things like beard oils, balms, conditioners, combs and trimmers, etc…

So are beards a big niche and does it have long term potential?

Interesting New Niche: Wearable Fitness Tech for Your Dog

So early this morning I was browsing around looking at some cool new technology stuff on Amazon when I came across not one but two different wearable tech devices for dogs. At first I sort of wondered why my dogs would need such a thing. Then I looked down to see my two aging dogs laying around doing nothing and wondered to myself, “Are they still getting enough exercise in a day? I’m not even sure. They definitely don’t do as much as they used to.”

The more I thought about it the more it seemed like a useful device. Making sure your four legged friends get enough exercise is a critical part of their care and it can be hard to keep track, so why not use a wearable device to make sure they are getting the best possible care you can give them. That and they look kind of fun.

So here are two examples that are available through Amazon, these are brand new products to the marketplace through Amazon’s new Launchpad section. [Read more…]

Keyword Canine is My New Best Friend

Keyword CanineLast year I shrunk my budget for tools and products because I was spending too much and not using all the cool things I was buying. So I thought long and hard this week before I purchased Keyword Canine.

You see, I’ve had a really hard time finding a keyword tool that I like and that I can use without getting a headache. I’ve tried so many over the past five years, I thought I was running out of options. When I saw the videos and information for Keyword Canine it seemed like it might be “the one” for me. It was simple to use, it showed level of difficulty to rank for a keyword at a glance, and it scoured the web to find random keywords for you and pulled them into it’s little brainstorming tool.

Niche Ideas : Starbucks Collectibles

I’m cracking open the niche notebook again this morning to share another idea with you. Yes, you read that right – Starbucks Collectibles. It’s not just about coffee anymore.

You would be surprised what people collect from the coffee powerhouse franchise. Some people even collect the gift cards that are available, and will pay you quite a nice sum if you have the hard-to-find design they’re seeking. I was really surprised to see “empty” and “unused” Starbucks gift cards being sold on eBay during the holidays.

But, when I scribbled this niche down in the notebook I was thinking more about the coffee mugs. There are several different design sets, many with limited edition designs, that collectors strive to get in completeness. [Read more…]
