Five Niche Markets that Will Always Make Money

written by Guest Blogger on October 21, 2011

Secure Affiliate Marketing

When it comes to making money online, many people are too focused on the concept of trying to make a quick buck. Instead, take the time to build an established web site or business model that could pay off year after year. Instead of constantly jumping on the latest hot trends of and trying to make a quick buck off new affiliate offers, there are also some niches that will always be in demand and make money forever.

Here is a list of 5 markets you can continually make money day after day, year after year!

Dating

As long as their will be people in the world, there will need to be a service for dating. Look at the dating industry online in just the past few years, and there doesn’t seem to be any reason for a slow down in sight. The well known dating web sites may attract a broad audience, but the new money is in the niche dating area, which targets based on religion, ethnicity and interests. To see what some of the latest dating web sites are using in their ad copies, be sure to check out my dating landing pages post.

Coupons

Coupons have always been hot, but lately it’s gone crazy with the release of the “Extreme Couponing” show on TLC network. Taking the coupon industry to an even bigger level, was the launch of daily deals sites like Groupon and Living Social. No one wants to (or can afford) to pay full prices any more, and the companies that are making coupons available to customers are seeing a nice return on investment. At the same time, there is a ton of money to be made by helping these companies market their coupons to the right people.

Pets

Did you know that there are over 78.2 million owned pets, just within the United States? That means 39% of all U.S. households own at least one dog, while 28% of these owners own two dogs. That’s an amazing statistic and just shows how profitable the pet industry can be. Whether you own a local pet store or franchise like PetSmart or Petco, go on to create a pet food delivery like PetFlow, or even just have a blog or pet information web site, there are a lot of ways to make money in the pet niche. How many people do you know that has at least one cat or dog?

Weight Loss

Let’s hit you with a few more cold hard facts. About one-third of U.S. adults (33.8%) are obese. Approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2—19 years are obese. How’s that for a target audience. I’m sure almost all of these figure have tried a weight loss product, or at least wanted to lose weight. The weight loss industry is especially hot during New Years Resolutions and right before summer. Year after year, billions of dollars are spent on the weight loss industry, pills and exercising gimmicks. Are you raking it in by helping others lose?

Make Money

Lastly we have the make money industry… which applies to nearly everyone! Who wouldn’t want to make more money? Right now the country is hurting bad for jobs and money, and people are looking for new ways to generate money, especially online. Unfortunately there will always be scams and garbage ways to make money, but if you have a quality product or the ability to teach people how to make money, you can help others while running a real business and cashing in.

There you have it. Five simple and easy to understand niche markets that aren’t going anywhere! Feel free to leave a comment if you’ve tried any of these markets or wanted to add to the list.

Beautiful post Zac, I have found that those markets have always made me money online and always have continued to grow.

Zac Johnson October 22, 2011 at 9:17 am

Always good to be in a niche that you know won’t die off anytime soon.

Erwin Miradi October 23, 2011 at 8:46 am

Yeah sure it’s good. But these are the hardest competition there is, right? I mean, even the oldest players are still there.

ZK @ Web Marketing Tips October 27, 2011 at 5:54 am

Just go for long tail keywords and you will enjoy these niches.

panax October 29, 2011 at 9:24 am

How is a pleasure

Earnmoneyblogging October 21, 2011 at 10:52 am

I am already in two of the niches you mentioned, i am new to dating niche may be start one later

aatif October 21, 2011 at 10:47 pm

which niche earn you most ? May i know ?

Zac Johnson October 22, 2011 at 9:18 am

Dating is a good one, always money to be made if you learn how to promote the campaigns effectively.

Jared Ronski October 21, 2011 at 10:59 am

I completely agree with this article and the niche markets chosen.
Providing payment processing for alot of companies in these markets gives me insight into what works, and all of these markets make money even with tons of competition out there.

Mate Hegedus October 21, 2011 at 12:03 pm

These are great niche markets but you may also exploit them by making money off it from youtube.

I have a post on my blog on how to make money with youtube and you can definitely create these little niches there too.

http://matehegedus.com/how-to-make-money-on-youtube

Zac Johnson October 21, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Definitely, and YouTube videos rank well on Google too!

Make Money Online Helper October 21, 2011 at 12:15 pm

Excellent post Zac. Great niches but very competitive though. In addition I think some people may find it easier to make money if they find a niche that is not so competitive. Try and be creative.

Zac Johnson October 22, 2011 at 9:19 am

Definitely competitive, but that’s where the money always is. Fortunately through internet marketing someone in a corner room in their house can compete and still succeed against billion dollar companies.

Faizan October 21, 2011 at 1:39 pm

I especially agree with number 1,4 and 5. I think technology, such as gadget reviews and social media tips, are also hot niches.

Zac Johnson October 22, 2011 at 9:19 am

The mobile phone app market has been extremely hot, especially for app review sites.

Dave Doolin October 21, 2011 at 2:16 pm

The crazy thing is that it’s true: these Big 5 *will* always make money. Thinking they won’t is like saying there won’t be any more new songs on the radio, because we have all the old ones already.

And the general principles for succeeding in these niches won’t change, either.

The devil, as they say, is in the details.

Zac Johnson October 22, 2011 at 9:20 am

Good comparison. A new wave of customers every day, out with the old and in with the new.

Pulkit Kaushik | TheDolt October 21, 2011 at 4:53 pm

I belong to the Tech niche. *Sigh*

panax October 29, 2011 at 9:27 am

I mean hell what the room:)

Tom October 21, 2011 at 5:31 pm

I figured money would be on your list. Really surprised pets are on the list.

Zac Johnson October 22, 2011 at 9:21 am

Pets is a good one. You don’t really think about money with you see dogs and cats, but just think about how much is spent on food, grooming, medical and toys.

David October 21, 2011 at 6:14 pm

Thanks Zac, I have learned a lot from you in the past couple months. I’ve really enjoyed reading you blog and have successfully started making money online by following some of your tips!

Cheers!

Zac Johnson October 21, 2011 at 10:44 pm

Thanks David, I’m so glad to hear that!

panax October 29, 2011 at 9:25 am

not to agree.

fazal mayar October 21, 2011 at 7:42 pm

Very simple post yet so full of information zac. You are smart marketer and the niches you are talking about are just exploding daily maybe except for pets.

Zac Johnson October 21, 2011 at 10:44 pm

Thanks, appreciate it. While most of the trends are growing, pets continue to be a constant. PetSmart actually just posted some great quarterly numbers, so business is booming for them as well!

Goa Carnival October 21, 2011 at 9:36 pm

Totoally agreed, all are some great niches which always attracts people attention. If I have to choose then I go Coupons site. People love to discover discount coupons so that they can get some off on their purchase.

Zac Johnson October 22, 2011 at 9:21 am

When someone goes to Google and searches for a brand name + coupons, they are already in buying mode. It’s a great way to make money online.

Avi October 21, 2011 at 9:57 pm

I agree with you… these fields will always be there in the market..btw nice article

panax October 31, 2011 at 12:09 pm

yes …you rght

Guru Web Portal October 21, 2011 at 11:41 pm

All 5 are really great niche for making money.

Property Marbella October 22, 2011 at 3:21 am

You forgot the biggest market to earn money on the Internet; SEX – PORNO.

Zac Johnson October 22, 2011 at 9:22 am

That one will definitely be around forever too :P

fas October 22, 2011 at 7:28 am

I guess some of them are niche no more!

Tom October 23, 2011 at 1:55 am

Health, love and money are great “ever-green” topics.You need to find a small niche in these big topics and you can earn a nice income online.People are always going to be interested in their health, finding love and making more money.

Erwin Miradi October 23, 2011 at 8:49 am

Really a nice post Zac. These niches will always live. I tried to compete in Weight Loss competition. Well, I didn’t realize that it was one of the hardest competition on internet. Gonna need a lot of money and time to invest.

Blogging & Make Money Online Tips October 23, 2011 at 10:45 am

Some great tips there Zac. I should definitely look into making some niche websites about these topics. Thanks for the ideas.

enoch October 23, 2011 at 11:04 am

Funny, I read a post here about a month ago saying you can’t make money in the make money niche. Yes, I know this is a guest post and I think the other was a guest post also.

But maybe someone needs to review what they post if only to make sure of contradictions.

Richard Brown October 23, 2011 at 12:00 pm

I am in 2 of the niches you mentioned and have yet to make any real significant money. Then again I have only been in it for a few months so I need to get back to work!

Matt Banning October 23, 2011 at 5:30 pm

Yeah, I really like the pet niche. I myself, own 3 dogs and believe me, i spend a lot of money on them. I also believe that people will continue to buy pet products online as a way of convenience. Either way, thank you John and great articles as always.

kurt October 23, 2011 at 6:20 pm

I am in 2 of those niches they really do offer the potential for long term revenue and traffic.

PPC Ian October 23, 2011 at 10:53 pm

Agreed, this is a great list of verticals for the long term, especially when it comes to affiliate marketing.

Guru Web Portal October 23, 2011 at 10:18 pm

Perfect!

PPC Ian October 23, 2011 at 10:53 pm

Great list, neat to see pets on there. Out of all these verticals, that’s one I have little/no experience with. Thanks for sharing!

Divya October 24, 2011 at 12:14 am

you are right, my suggestions are dating, make money and weightloss are the most ones.

Lalit October 24, 2011 at 7:07 am

Excellent list and I am in none of the above niches and therefore I think a lot of opportunity for me to enter into any one of the above and earn a little bit of money. Thanks for sharing the great ideas.

red October 25, 2011 at 9:18 pm

I love writing pets. Now I have website about poultry and fish. Is the niche good?

researchanalyst October 26, 2011 at 3:26 am

These are really good niches and I have noticed many people on Hubpages writing about these same topics because they get so much traffic.

I have found success writing about hairstyles, I actually stumbled upon it when I wrote a hub on hubpages about short hairstyles for round faces and was blown away by the traffic.

Thanks for the tips I may try the Pets niche next.

allan stuart October 27, 2011 at 7:48 pm

i prefer the pet niche.. they are many type of pet you can cover… you just need patient and perseverance… hardworking will pay off m friend :-)

just stick whit what you do and do it consistently…

top ranked mba October 27, 2011 at 10:09 pm

Yes but it’s not possible to get rank easily in these niche.

facebook clone October 28, 2011 at 5:50 pm

Having website on weight loss its really help to earn a lot

panax October 29, 2011 at 9:21 am

What do you mean bi communicated

Cheolsu October 31, 2011 at 1:53 am

I had registered domains related to dating and coupons before a couple of month. I will spend some dedicated time getting some unique content to those websites. With coupons and dating websites, I see a lot of competition for every other keyword.

iskandarX November 2, 2011 at 7:24 am

This is good, great and nice niche but it gotta ban topic in squidoo, too bad. But thank for the sharing this niche.

Divya November 2, 2011 at 11:59 pm

i think diet, finance, businesses,AUTO ARE UNNING WELL IN THIS SEASONS

Olivier Vasquez November 6, 2011 at 2:26 pm

These are defintely the best niches – but I love finding little obscure niches that nobody gravitate towards… That makes me feel comfortable, and I don’t have to worry about competition for a while… I know I can find my own avenue within those larger niches mentioned in the post (which Ido…)

But lately – I’m all about the micro-niche baby!
