1. Participant actively in the well-known forums, web boards, chat rooms or membership sites. The first critical step to find profitable niche affiliate products to sell online, like crazy, is to find out and try to identify the problem in your markets. This means you have to know exactly what people's problem is in your markets. You have to identify what they are looking for or what the solution for their problem is. Without this action, it is difficult to discover highly profitable niche products or affiliate products to sell on the internet. Well-known forums, web-boards, chat rooms and membership sites are great places for wealthy affiliate marketing entrepreneurs to find the problem and solution in the market. Those places are perfect for people to exchange their experiences, be socializing, find out their problem and look for the solution. My experiences show that people always have their own problems and they are looking for how to solve their problems always on the internet. They believe that the internet is a global library where there is a ton of information. Additionally, the easy and quick way to find out the well-known forums, web-boards or chat rooms is to search from the search engines. You will discover a lot of great sites over there. My recommendation is to pick up the active and popular forums or sites. With those forums, it is easier for you to participant and get people's problem.
2. Read articles, news, review information and blogs. Obviously, choosing lucrative niche products requires an effective research. All you have to do is to do your own research by reading articles from articles directories, news from Google, Yahoo and MSN group, review information and blogs. With this action, you will discover what the market is and what people are talking about or what their concern is. Personally, I have no doubt that those articles, news, review information and blogs are great places to find out up-to-date information, people's problem and solution. That information will lead you to discover niche products to sell online.
3. Research effectively on keywords. The effective keyword research will lead you to discover profitable markets and products to sell online. There are many keyword tools to help you to generate hot niche keywords on the internet. Additionally, search engines are absolutely great places to find out niche products to sell online. Focus keywords (or search keywords) play a major role in those search engines. At the present, those search engines are so smart and intelligent. With those keywords and search engines, you can find out what people are currently looking for. I am sure that with the effective keyword research and search engines, you can discover untapped market and niche affiliate products in the market. The real keys to your success in this step are: to brainstorm your initial keywords, do your market research with those initial keywords, and dig down those keywords for hot niche markets and products respectively.
4. Exchange the ideas among wealthy affiliate marketing entrepreneurs. This approach is one of the most effective and easy ways to find out the niche products to sell on the internet. I highly recommend you to exchange your ideas, experiences and knowledge with other people. Sometimes, you can get the lucrative niche markets and products for your home based affiliate business by discussing with others. However, I highly recommend you to have your own ideas and exchange your ideas with others. Personally, I believe this is a give and take scheme. You have to give your ideas to other affiliate marketing entrepreneurs first and then you can take others later. More importantly, this could be a join venture relationship in the future.
5. Join the affiliate marketing networks. Many reliable and secure affiliate products are in the affiliate marketing networks such as CJ, Clickbank, and Linkshare. You can find great affiliate products on those marketplaces. Some of wealthy affiliate marketing networks like CJ and Clickbank have great tips, top recommended affiliate products, and hot new products for affiliate marketing entrepreneurs to advertise and sell on the internet.
6. Test the niche affiliate products by yourself. My experiences show that niche products are sold like crazy and are very profitable for affiliate marketing entrepreneurs, but it does not mean that those products can be profitable for other entrepreneurs always. All you have to do when you found your niche products to sell online is to test them. By testing, you have to plan, work and track results closely.
Final thoughts, with those 6 action ideas, I am sure that it will help you to find great niche markets and products to sell online. My bottom line is that you should not focus on #1 best selling products on the internet, but you should focus on the problem and solution people are looking for in the market. I strongly believe that everyone can earn huge affiliate commission in any markets and products if they have their passionate in those markets and products.
