15 Most Profitable Affiliate Marketing Niches to Tap Into
15 Most Profitable Affiliate Marketing Niches to Tap Into
Affiliate marketing niches are in no short supply. Whichever one you choose will make or break you. So it’s important not to just jump into the first idea that sounds interesting without first doing your homework.
The good news: it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to get started. (Or any at all.) But you are going to have to work for it.
By that, we mean you’ll need to align passions and interests with marketability and income potential. Thankfully, there are at least 15 affiliate marketing niches that are sure to hit the mark. In the following article, we’ll cover each one.
1. Online Dating
Finding Mr. or Mrs. Right isn’t just a whimsical fantasy. It’s also a multimillion-dollar business. Most of it comes in the form of informational programs or products.
But there are ancillary products as well that you can easily connect to an Amazon affiliate link. Think specific colognes or lifestyle brands. Basically, anything that makes you look good, feel good, or smell good can generate affiliate income with a large enough following.
2. Marriage Counseling
Being rejected by someone close to you is hard. It drives people to reevaluate their views, decisions, and lives. All of this comes in an effort to “fix” whatever led to the breakup. A growing segment of affiliate marketing niches belongs to counseling , and marriage counseling in particular.
Naturally, this journey lends itself to the dream of reconciliation or getting back together with your spouse or significant other. And while the road is almost always a difficult one, it’s not impossible.
In fact, a study of 1,001 divorced couples found that around 6 percent were able to marry, divorce, and then remarry with success. Those aren’t great odds, but they represent a chance. And people will pay big money for that chance.
3. Healthy Eating Habits
Another one to consider when niche picking: eating habits. Notice we didn’t say “the food space.”
That’s because there has emerged a whole other niche devoted to some of the most decadent foods imaginable. And if cooking is your thing, then you might consider it.
But healthy eating habits has been a mainstay for a couple of reasons: 1) People find it difficult to stay on track while taming their cravings and hunger, so they need help learning what to eat to become satiated. 2) We know more today than ever before about the correlation between what we put into our bodies and our overall quality of life.
4. Going Smoke-Free
This entry on our list of niche ideas has become super-important over the last 25-30 years. The reasons are two-fold:
- Cigarettes are so expensive that buying them isn’t sustainable for the typical family’s budget; and
- Cigarette smoking, according to the Centers for Disease Control, is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States.
Bottom line: if you want to save money and your life, you’ll cut it out as soon as humanly possible. The problem with that is cigarette smoking is highly addictive.
Programs that demonstrate how to break the addiction are encouraging enough to instill hope and structured enough so that many people can stay the course. That makes it a lucrative niche inviting millions of potential customers.
5. Women’s Fitness
The women’s fitness space presents an evergreen marketing opportunity if there ever was one. We can debate why that is all day. At least part of it is due to the tremendous amount of unfair pressure that society places on a woman’s looks.
But societal expectations aside, many women have noticed the correlation between looking better and feeling better. They also see high-profile female athletes who are making names for themselves in what was historically a man’s world — Ronda Rousey, Danica Patrick, to name two — and they’re going for it!
6. Making Money Online
Ever been to an affiliate programs affiliate website? Essentially, this is a website that earns affiliate income from offering a variety of affiliate opportunities. This is the very essence of making money online because it generates all income from online income-generating opportunities.
While we would not suggest a generalist approach to this, you might be able to get some mileage out of it if you do the following. Pick an individual niche and offer only affiliate programs related to that area.
Example: if you’re going the “smoke-free” route, offer only affiliate programs to products or solutions designed to help you quit smoking (i.e., the patch, special chewing gums, “cold turkey” methods, etc.).
And that’s just one way you could be making money online using affiliate marketing niches. There are myriad other ways, some of which we cover in this post. Be sure to check it out.
7. FOREX and Digital Currency
FOREX (foreign exchange) trading is where you buy and sell currencies from different countries similar to how you would a stock or mutual fund. The biggest difference: the FOREX market is way more volatile.
Spend enough time in the market, and you’ll hear jokes about losing $1,000 or more while going to the bathroom. It can seriously turn that fast!
Bitcoin and other digital currencies sort of coincide with this space as well due to the rampant volatility. It’s not uncommon for a bitcoin or a foreign exchange trade to gain or lose rapidly in the span of 30 minutes.
If you’re the type of person who knows how to effectively gauge the profitability of these trades, then you can make some serious money selling your knowledge to others who want the same results.
8. Multilevel Marketing
Multilevel marketing often gets a bad reputation with good reason. That’s because many “sellers” are like the Emperor without any clothes.
They employ an army of people to sell for them with only the promise of a dwindling amount of the payment. Meanwhile, they do little of the work and reap the largest percentage of the sale.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing except much of what is being sold is just the sales pitch. The actual “product” is unproven at best and fraudulent at worst.
That said, multilevel marketing can and does work if it’s attached to a product that people love (Tupperware, for example).
9. Finding Your Career
Jobs and careers often are used interchangeably. For our purposes, we’ll do the same. That’s because most people looking for a job online are really hoping to find a career.
Starting an affiliate program designed to guide the right candidates toward their destinies will make you very successful provided you know what you’re doing and have the results to prove it.
But how do you compete against the job sites themselves? Consider for a moment that 80 percent of jobs, even in the age of the Internet, are not posted online, and it shouldn’t be hard to figure out.
Find an affiliate program — or start one yourself — that shows candidates tips and tricks for how to root out these jobs within the industries they’ve chosen. Before long, you’ll be able to paper the proverbial wall with thank-yous.
10. Credit Repair
Perhaps the only thing worse than being unable to find a job is being flat broke and incapable of bettering your financial position. Bad credit does that to people.
It makes them feel ashamed, frustrated, and hopeless. It sucks every last breath of air out of the room.
The “good news” from an affiliate perspective is that this desperation leads many people to search for credit repair opportunities online. If you’ve chosen or created the right program, it could become super-successful. Better yet, you’ll be changing lives for the good.
11. Pet Products and Training
Some people don’t get the whole “treat your pet like a child” thing. But millions of pet owners around the world do. And that’s where your affiliate prowess can come in handy.
Pet owners look online for all types of pet-related solutions and products that could benefit their lives. And if you’ve found something that’s worked for you, then it’ll likely work for someone else.
12. Pricey Hobbies
This one could encompass dozens and dozens of individual niches — many you would never have considered — but they all share a basic commonality. They inspire the people who take part in those hobbies, however small, to spend a ton of money pursuing their passions.
Yes, you may not be able to attract a large audience. But the people you do attract come ready to spend, and they’ll keep you wealthy for a long time thanks to their passion and their tendency to continually invest in it.
Like hobbies, it could encompass anything: drones, watches, tablets, specialty corkscrews. Find a cool gadget and drill into the niche it serves, or make your whole niche about cool gadgets. Either way works.
With more uncertainty between the political parties and fewer people willing to see eye-to-eye, concepts like The Walking Dead are turning many people toward prepper culture. What will we do if the zombies come?
Well, there doesn’t have to be a single brain-eater afoot to find useful information, products, and gear in the survival space. Choose this niche and start populating your blog posts and newsletters with affiliate links to stock up before it’s too late!
15. Become a Better…
Everyone wants to live their best lives these days. Just fill in the blank, and you, too, could find millions in the “Become a Better” whatever niche.
Word of warning, though. Make sure you actually know what you’re talking about. Because in this space, authority is everything.
The Riches Are in the Affiliate Marketing Niches
Remember this if you really want to turn your dreams into dollars. Affiliate marketing niches will help get you there, but you need to find something that will hold your passion because it’s a marathon and not a sprint!
But if you’re pressed for time, fear not. This guide will help you start any business for free — in your spare time. Good luck!
