People often ask “What are the profitable niches?” There’s no short answer to that; there are hundreds of niches that are profitable, and in theory, any niche can be profitable if you’re good at promoting it and have a good product to sell. Of course, for those who are new to affiliate marketing, it’s easier to start with a niche that already has a lot of built-in interest.
Beginning Internet marketers will likely see some success if they first try in one of the “evergreen” niches, such as dating sites – niches that are always popular and never, ever go out of style. The advantages of going with evergreen niches is that you’ll have lots of customer interest and that isn’t likely to wane. The downside, of course, is that these niches are popular with both consumers and marketers, and that means that niches such as dating sites are likely to have a lot of competition, and many people feel that this niche in particular is saturated. Is it still possible to make money with dating sites? The answer is – “maybe.” Read on for more about making money with dating sites.
You don’t have to have been involved in affiliate marketing for very long to know that dating sites are hot. In fact, the dating niche is one of the most popular marketing niches out there. A quick search of Google for dating sites shows more than fifty million results. That clearly indicates a lot of interest in that market, and billions of dollars change hands every year in that industry. And yes, affiliate marketers are making a lot of money promoting dating Websites. It’s a great niche in which to be working, but it’s also super-competitive. If you’re going to try to make money in the matchmaking business, you need to take a unique approach.
The problem is that if you decide that you’re going to promote a particular brand, such as EHarmony or Plenty of Fish, or Match, you’re going to find yourself having to compete with tens of thousands of other marketers. Just do a search for any of those brands online and you’ll find that there are endless review sites, countless ads, and more promotional material than you can possibly imagine. You’re also going to find yourself going up against some pretty well established competition. Some of the people promoting those brands have been doing it for years, and they’re very good at it. It’s unlikely that you’re going to start promoting EHarmony today and replace some of the big marketers who are ranking highly at the top of the search engines for that brand. So what do you do? How do you compete in promoting dating sites?
