When it comes time for you to choose a niche to start making money in and promoting offers, there is a world of options for you to choose from. The hardest part about choosing a winning niche, is deciding whether or not you want to take on the big spenders in a competitive niche, or try to become one of the top players in a non-competitive market. In this post we are going to highlight three of the most competitive niches and why they will always make money online.

The three winning niches that we are going to be focusing on are dating, weight loss and financial/make money offers.


It’s easy to understand why dating is one of the hottest and most competitive niches out. Everyone wants to find a special someone, and as long as people keep having babies, millions of people will look for their first date online every day.

Another reason why the dating niche is making so much money, is that there is a dating site for nearly any demographic and target you can think of. Religion, ethnicity, age, location, special interests… if you can think of it, there is probably one for it.

From an affiliate marketing perspective, dating offers are awesome because they pay out a decent amount of money just for getting someone to sign up for a free account. Dating offers have been more attractive than ever now that you can advertise on networks like Facebook Ads and Plenty of Fish based on full demographics and whether or not individuals are single.


Just like everyone wants to find that special someone, everyone also wants to lose weight and look good in the process. Let’s face it… the United States is one of the most unhealthy countries around and people are looking for a quick fix to get in shape and are willing to spend money in the process. Unfortunately for the people looking to lose weight, spending money won’t get you anywhere… but this is exactly why the weight loss niche is one that will always do well and is a $60 billion dollar industry!

Weight loss offers simply exploded every since the release of rebill offers, which basically paid a huge commission on an initial credit card sign up, and all the affiliate had to do was sell the concept of a free trial. Still, there is a massive amount of money being made through weight loss blogs, media buys, banner placements, social network advertising and anything else you can think of… online weight loss ads are everywhere!

No matter if you are pushing rebills, weight loss pills or exercise equipment, there is always going to be massive money to be made in the weight loss niche, along with massive competition.


To round out our list of three very profitable and competitive niches, we have financial and make money offers. This niche market can cover anything from credit cards, pay day loans and business related offers. Everything that is relating to making money or cleaning up your debt is sure to make a ton of money.

Once again, just like dating and weight loss, the competition is fierce! The majority of financial related affiliate offers not only pay a high commission, but the value of these leads are usually long time customers for the backend advertiser as well.

Choosing the Right Niche for You

Dating, weight loss and financial offers… which is right for you? The better question might be, should you even bother with these niches? The competition in these niches is very high and unless you have a nice amount of money to back up your ad campaigns for split testing and an initial loss in the beginning, it will be hard to compete.

One of the best ways to find success in promoting any of these niches is to make sure you spend enough time to know your audience and create extremely niche landing pages. Many affiliates have spent the necessary time to master promoting these niches through media buying and social network advertising on Facebook Ads and Plenty of Fish.

If you are a new affiliate and just starting out, these might not be the best niche markets for you to start in, but I have seen many people do extremely well in promoting these types of offers as well.
