Creating a niche site

Creating a niche site

Niche sites have significant earning potential. They can earn over $1,000 a month within the first 12 months and eventually replace your regular "9 to 5."

But to reach that point, you need to know how to successfully get one off the ground using a step-by-step process.

How niche affiliate sites work

Niche affiliate websites work by promoting someone else’s product through content and earning a commission from every sale the company makes.

To do this, site owners produce articles and reviews, covering topics like what the product is, who needs the product and why, and how the product compares to other similar products. If someone makes a purchase, an affiliate commission is earned.

How much can you earn from a niche affiliate site

How much can you earn from a niche affiliate site

It depends on three things:

  • Choosing the right niche
  • Building the site right from the beginning
  • How much time and effort you put into the site to get it off the ground

Choosing a niche with high-ticket items, laying the right foundations, and putting more effort into the amount of content you produce and links you build will make your site earn more quickly.

Niche sites currently flip for around a 32X multiplier based on one month’s income, meaning if it earns $1,000 a month within 12 months, you can potentially flip that site for $32,000.

Choosing the right niche

Choosing the right niche

Choosing the right niche lays the foundation for everything else going forward. For example, the degree of difficulty to rank your site, the amount of money you can earn, etc.

When you decide on a profitable niche, consider:

  1. Personal experience/interests
  2. Choosing the right affiliate program(s)
  3. Viability in the long term

Personal experience/interests

Too much experience in a niche can make you too personally invested. You may want to vet all the content in the finest detail or write all the content yourself. This makes it very hard to scale.

Instead, choose a niche you find interesting but not too interesting. You should have enough interest to produce some of the content at first, but not enough to write everything in the long term.

Viability in the long term

You may be tempted to jump into anything that is hot right now, but it is probably not going to give you enough scope in terms of keywords to scale your site.

Focusing on seasonal niches, such as tennis, means your site will earn more at certain times and nothing at other times.

If you want to build an affiliate site to act as your main source of income, you have to take these factors consideration.

Finding the right keywords

Finding the right keywords

When doing keyword research for niche affiliate sites, you’re mostly looking for three main types of keywords:

  • General comparisons – Best wifi router, best protein powder
  • Branded comparisons – MacBook Air vs. MacBook Pro
  • Product reviews – MacBook Pro review

These contain all the keyword types that people regularly search for and where you can plug products to earn affiliate commissions.

  • Go to Ahrefs’ Keywords Explorer
  • Enter broad topics or brands related to your niche
  • Go to the Matching terms report
  • Filter for keywords containing a relevant modifier

Building your site

Building your site

Pick a domain and build your site using WordPress, as it is customizable and free.

  • Choose the right theme as it will form the foundation of your site. The theme should have its own built-in page builder functionality, such as Astra or AffiliateFish.
  • Consider conversions. Ensure your site has clear call-to-action (CTA) sections, such as clicking a link to your recommended retailer, downloading an ebook, or signing up for a mailing list.
  • Think about expertise, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness (E‑A-T). Ensure that your website has a clear “about” page and author bios to establish authority.

Writing Content

Content is vital to a niche affiliate site. This is where you will put all your affiliate links, which can earn you commissions.

  • Ensure you write quality content that will engage your audience.
  • Write content for people, not search engines.

This will help you build trust and a loyal readership because they love what you are doing.

Building links

Links building is getting other websites to link to pages on your own website. Links need to come from high-quality sources.

Top link building choices for beginners are:

  • Earned media. Use sites like Help A Reporter Out (HARO), Terkel, and Sourcebottle to build high-authority links and help to boost E-A-T.
  • Broken link building is an easy way to build links.
  • Guest blogging can help to build high-quality links to your website and help you improve E-A-T.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
