Day 2: Finding Niche Market Ideas
Posted on 15/07/2010 in Internet Marketing, The Basics, The Challenge

If you’re having difficulty coming up with some new niches, this post is for you!  The Challenge suggests two places to get niche ideas:  Amazon and Google.

1. Magazines in Amazon

The premise with this approach is that if there is a magazine for a topic, then there is a market!

Head to, point your cursor at the Books link on the left hand side nav bar, and then select Magazines from the drop down menu.

You can then see the list of subjects (eg Crafts & Hobbies). Click on a subject and it will display niche areas (eg “applique”, “baskets”, “beadwork”).

Write down any niche ideas that interest you.You will then explore these niches in detail tomorrow.

2. Google Search-based Keyword Tool

This is another tool to help generate markets and niche ideas. You can find it here:

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the link that says:
Or see top keywords across all categories

Click on a category (eg Hobbies), then a sub-category (eg Arts and Crafts), and you will see niche ideas. This table also gives you an indicator of monthly searches and competition, but that will be explored in details in subsequent lessons.

3. Other Ideas
