One of the toughest hurdles to overcome when deciding to start a new website is what it will be about. In other words, what is my niche?

100 No-Nonsense Niche Ideas to Inspire You

Niche marketing sounds complicated when you are new to the idea of website ownership, but it doesn’t have to be.

Basically, you need to pick a subject (a niche) to focus your website on. It should be a niche that is not too broad and not too narrow so that you can be focused, but not so limited that you will run out of material to write about and grow your website.

“If everybody is doing it one way, there’s a good chance you can find your niche by going exactly in the opposite direction.” –Sam Walton

For example, a dog niche could be about a specific breed. You would frame your website around their health, training, family compatibility, intelligence, services they can provide, how to find them, expenses and so on. Then you would sign up as an affiliate with providers such as Amazon to sell dog products on your website. One way to do that is to review products and recommend them in a blog post.

You see this every day on the websites and blogs you visit. For example, when you are looking for a new cell phone, you look up reviews for the device and a link is there to click to buy it at a good price. You appreciate that service right? I know I do. It certainly saves a hike to the Apple store.

While you are browsing the subjects below, think of them in terms of targeting a specific audience. How can you take an idea and tailor it for a group of people looking for a solution to a problem or who want to learn how? What has been lacking when you have searched the topic yourself? What experience can you add that will help others?
