Affiliate Marketing & Programs

Top Money Making Niches Online


If you go to the ClickBank marketplace or any other affiliate marketplace online, you’ll find that there are literally tens of niches you can join and try to monetize through an affiliate site.

Some niches are pretty basic and obvious while others are quite obscure, like the build a chicken coop niche, for example.

However there are three big niches that have been on the top in terms of profitability in every major affiliate marketplace. Some affiliates like to call them “the big three.” Here they are:

  • The make money niche.

  • The lose weight niche.

  • The relationship advice niche.

The reason why these niches are that popular is because they are ultra-evergreen. No matter what happens in the world people will still want to lose weight, make money, and have a good relationship.

Of course, just because the niches are popular doesn’t mean that you will be able to make money in them right from the get-go. Unfortunately, their popularity goes hand in hand with big competition.

This means that sometimes being a newbie in one of these niches can be even harder than going for some less crowded niches.

No matter what you do, you have to start with a nice affiliate product you can promote with all honesty.

Attracting visitors to your site is a whole other story. It consists of activities like market research, keyword research, content creation, promotion, and so on. But when it comes to finding affiliate offers, getting started is much simpler – you can go to ClickBank.

However, joining one of the three big niches is a bit different in comparison to other – standard – niches. You see, when joining any other niche you could just pick the best performing product and promote it.

For the big niches, however, top products have often gravity scores of 200 or above. This means that the affiliate space is a bit crowded (many super affiliates), and entering it with essentially the same kind of promotion can be difficult. Therefore, you’re probably better off picking a product with a slightly lower gravity (between 50-70).

The whole problem with promoting highly popular products is that you have to differentiate yourself as an affiliate, and make your offers attractive. But if 200 other affiliates are going after the same goal, than it can take you significantly more time to make any profit at all.

So why would you even want to promote any of the three big niches? Well, once you come up with a nice angle and attractive promotion you can make much better money than in other niches. Some niches have an upper limit of what you can make (due to the number of people interested in the niche), the big three, however, don’t have such a limit, and that’s their true power.

      Hi Solomon,

      I’m not sure who pays via Western Union, but other networks pay other ways than PayPal. Check out all the big networks, like Clickbank, Commission Junction, Peerfly and see how they pay. Always make sure to read their Terms and Conditions before signing up.
