How To Use Magazines.com To Find Profitable Niches
Use Old Style Magazines To Find What People Really Want
I have written about other techniques for niche ideas before now. Here’s another one that you will not see talked about too often, not least because it is free to use.
Here’s a couple of other niche research techniques I have written about before now:
- Using Google Suggest to find niches and article ideas
- Minimise keyword research by choosing ‘action’ terms
- Be an enthusiast!
If you are looking for ways to make money with affiliate marketing, you need to be able to find niches – areas of a topic that are small enough to get some ranking but not so small that there’s no one buying in it.
After all, you are in this to make some money, so you need to find new niches constantly.
One way to look for new niches is through magazines that also target niches – there are hundreds of magazines on a wide variety of topics, and many of them are specialized to focus on niche markets.
But going down to the local big bookstore to browse can be time-consuming, and they may not have the variety you need.
Fortunately, there’s a website that specializes in selling magazine subscriptions, and it is a treasure trove of information for the niche marketer – it’s found at magazines.com.
At the site you can browse through magazines by category, and they have hundreds of categories to look through.
Once you find a category you want to browse, you click through to the actual magazine display lists, which feature sample titles and covers.
If you click on a cover, you are taken to the magazine-specific page that gives a short but detailed description about the focus of the magazine.
But that’s not all – you’ll also find a customer review tab that features a customer review summary, and lets you read the individual reviews at length to get an idea of who reads the magazine, what they find useful, and so on.
At this level there is also a related products tab that displays just that – other magazines in the same general area of subject matter but having a different theme, target audience, or purpose.
You don’t have to spend much time at the site browsing the categories you’re interested in before you’ll make a discovery – one of those aha moments when you come upon an idea for a niche that you’d never thought of before.
It’s fun, it’s free, it’s a super research site – so use magazines.com to find niches – the success of your affiliate marketing efforts depends on it.
