I see many aspiring affiliates struggle with what audience or marketplace they should promote in. In this article I will simplify it and give you my 7 most profitable affiliate marketing niches that anyone can build a scalable digital business around.
Now, I’m well aware that a few of these may be obvious, but when you dig down deeper into these niches, you will uncover sub-niches that are right there ready for the taking.
Let Us Start With the Big “3” Evergreen Niches
- Health and Fitness
- Wealth and Make Money Online
These are considered “evergreen” because no matter if the economy tanks, where you may live in the world, demographic and background may be, everyone will always want to improve their Health, create more Wealth and better their Relationships.
Lets go ahead and dig deeper into these 3 and I will round this off with 4 more very profitable niches you may or may not of considered.
Health and Fitness
The Health niche as a whole is a multi-billion dollar industry. This is for obvious reasons as I stated above. However, did you know that there are literally 100s of sub-niches inside of this marketplace that generate millions upon millions of dollars a year?
Here are just a few of profitable sub-niches:
- Weight Loss for Women
- Weight Loss for Men
- Gain Muscle
- Six Pack Abs
- Dieting Recipes
- Diabetes Remedies
- Health Supplements
These are a small sample size of the possible audiences you could target inside this niche with your affiliate marketing.
Another great thing with the Health and Fitness niche is there are tons of products you can promote and earn high commissions.
If you are wanting to promote digital or instantly downloadable products, Clickbank.com is a perfect place to find potential offers.
For those that are wanting to sell physical or tangible products, like vitamins/supplements etc.., then you can never go wrong with Amazon’s Affiliate Program.
Also, you can do a simple Google search and find hot products and offers:
Wealth and Make Money Online
This is where I would guess the vast majority reading this would start. For good reason. It’s absolutely huge and there are so many digital products you can sign up to become an affiliate for. Like the Health niche, the Wealth niche has many profitable sub-niches…
- Paid Surveys
- MLM (Multi-Level Marketing)
- Network Marketing
- Affiliate Marketing
- List Building
- Software and Services
- Email Marketing
- Crypto Currency
The list really does go on and on.
This is definitely my favorite out of the 7 most profitable affiliate marketing niches I cover here.
There are a lot of digital marketplaces you can use to find high converting offers and products to promote in this niche. JVZoo.com is a huge marketplace for affiliate marketer’s looking for quality MMO (Make Money Online) and Internet Marketing offers to earn commissions on:
This rounds out our top 3 “evergreen” niches and it’s one that admittedly, I haven’t promoted too much in.
This isn’t because it isn’t profitable, but because I’ve been more focused on other markets.
Inside of this niche you find very profitable sub-niches like:
- Win Your Ex Back
- Dating Advice/Tips
- Save My Marriage
- Coping With Breakups
The Online Marketers that I know who are having a lot of success in this niche, use Clickbank to find tailored products for their audience.
So now that we’ve gone through the 3 more obvious niches, how about we look at a few lesser known but extremely profitable niches.
You could easily put this under the Health niche, but I keep this separate because it is so big on its own. Again, there are many smaller niches you could go into inside the audience.
- Paleo Diet Recipes
- Southern Cooking Recipes
- Diabets Diet Recipes
- Wine and Liquor
Another positive that I’ve found after researching this niche, is that the competition as a whole is surprisingly low.
This is of course compared to the others mentioned above, but still this is a Billion Dollar marketplace that anyone can jump into and generate nice commissions around.
The Gaming niche is on fire right now. There are countless guides, strategy manuals, cheat codes and gear this audience loves to buy and why not get your own piece of that as an affiliate marketer.
The one definite drawback with selling in this niche is that it is definitely geared towards the younger crowd.
This means that usually the potential customer doesn’t have the money to spend or buy products him or herself, but there parents definitely do. I speak from experience as one of these parents of kids that love these offers.
I have dabbled a little in this arena promoting physical products and the Amazon Associates Program is definitely a great place to begin if physical products are the way you want to go.
The Hobby Niche is probably my second favorite niche to work in. This is a broad audience but many different categories inside of it that are definitely profitable:
- Animals and Pets
- How To:
- Play Better Golf
These are 5 that I have actually made money in over the last 10 years or so.
The reason this marketplace is one of the 7 most profitable affiliate marketing niches is because we love to spend money on our passions. Plus, it is also just a fun niche to research and make money in.
Again, if selling digital products is your game, then head over to Clickbank Marketplace and have a look in the “Home and Garden” tab to find very high converting offers in this industry.
The final of these 7 most profitable affiliate marketing niches is Self Improvement and Transformational.
As a whole, this audience is a Multi-Billion dollar marketplace and only getting stronger and stronger. Like the other’s there are many highly profitable and scalable sub-niches:
- Stress Management
- Personal Finances
- Public Speaking
- Time Management
My wife started her affiliate marketing in this arena and made her first dollar online years ago in the Public Speaking niche.
I currently promote in the Survival and Self Esteem niches and have done quite well using only the offers I’ve found inside of the Clickbank Marketplace.
My Final Take On The 7 Most Profitable Affiliate Marketing Niches
While all of these are great to build an online business around, starting out I would recommend staying with 1 of the big 3 “evergreen” niches.
This is due to the sheer volume of products available to promote and the affiliate marketing training you can find online on how to properly promote these offers.
Another thing I suggest, is to begin with selling digital products rather than physical.
This is because of 2 reasons…
- The Commissions are Usually Higher with Digital Products
- Digital Products are in My Opinion Easier to Sell as Affiliates
As you begin to build and have success with your Affiliate Marketing, then you could perhaps venture into the physical products world.
That is all and I hope you enjoyed this post.
The main thing to do is pick a niche and get to work. Affiliate Marketing is a terrific industry and there is a lot of money to be made.
