The top niches aren’t specific to affiliates versus product creators. They’re all going to be the same. But some allow affiliates to make more money because they combine tangible and digital opportunities.
Relationships are one of the top niches online – people wanting to meet compatible matches and people wanting to save their existing relationships. But there aren’t as many tangible items you can promote in this niche. It’s primarily info product related.
Money is a similar niche that primarily has digital info product courses available to promote. But keep in mind that these two top niches have courses online that pay out a nice amount per sale – and plenty of people searching for them online.
Diet is a niche that’s evergreen in nature, suitable for both genders and many age groups – plus it offers a bevy of opportunities to sell both digital and tangible items. There are many online digital courses to help with weight loss, and many of them cater to a specific audience, like baby boomers or women.
On the tangible side, you could promote many things in the diet niche on sites like Amazon. You could do a review of an info product course and then pair it with tangible promotions for things like treadmills, elliptical machines, DVD exercise sets, Kettlebells, supplements and more.
Self help is a popular niche. People are looking for more mindset advice – stress relief, for example. You can pair an info product course promotion with the promotion of items like soothing candles, supplements, stress-busting gadgets, and even massage technology.
Insomnia is a popular niche. Sleep disorders are very common and there are both digital and tangible products available for you to promote on your site. Along with a digital course, think of tangibles like better bedding, soothing CDs, sleep masks, white noise machines, sleep supplements, and more.
Coffee and other gourmet foods are popular. When you have someone who is an enthusiast for coffee, they’ll spend top dollar on a variety of things – from courses teaching them about the topic to special tangible items like coffee grinders, brewers, beans, and more.
Parenting is a popular niche, too. This is a niche where moms and dads like to get advice on raising their kids, but they also have many tangible items to buy like nursery furniture, toys, educational items, clothes and more.
Pets are great affiliate niches – and you can specialize in one that you enjoy – dogs, cats, and tropical fish being the most popular. You can buy both info products on things like how to care for tropical fish – and tangible items like fancy aquariums, fish food and tank décor.
Household items are a big niche – and this goes for both indoor and outdoor. Homeowners are always buying like blenders, vacuums, lawnmowers, sheds, gardening supplies and more. They also buy info products to go with them, like how to grow tomatoes – and you could sell everything from the seeds to the pots they grow in!
