“Niche” is another word for the topic of your website or blog. Finding a profitable niche is just a matter of taking your subject and doing a little research
You NEED to make your niche something you are passionate about. Remember you will need to work on this constantly to build up your site – so you cannot lose interest in the subject matter!
Nothing will kill a website faster than if you lose interest in your subject and stop writing.
You can outsource your writing to keep it going though, so there are options. But best to pick something that has been one of your main interests for many, many years.
There are a few tools you can use to find your exact niche and a domain name specific to your niche.
TIP #1 – Just to give you a heads up before you do anything – DO NOT choose a domain name with a symbol in it like this one: www.wah-workathome.com. It needs to be easy and people type the name and boom they are there. But who is gonna remember that hyphen on that site name? Examples: www.google.com EASY. www.amazon.com EASY. Try to keep domain name to one or two words
