The Netherlands is a real cooking country and if cooking is your hobby, you should consider this idea. For example, you get your income from recommending all kinds of kitchen tools and premium recipe books.

This is a bit ‘weird’ because you make money from it yourself, but it is perhaps the easiest niche. If you promise someone that he can earn 3,000 euros a month thanks to the method of video course x which costs 1,000 euros, then the math makes it quite logical to buy that video course.

In fact, you yourself are getting rich by teaching others how to get rich. That gives it a ‘strange’ feeling. But if you are actually empowered and if it is easy, do it!

Niche Idea 5-100: Your hobby

Any other niche ideas that you enjoy can also work, provided they meet the criteria below (see next section).

One of the most important things to take into account is the size of the total market in the Netherlands. There is a good chance that your passion for pocket knives is  a good niche idea, but that you have to create an English-language website because in the Netherlands there are only 10,000 searches per month for pocket knife-related matters, while you can more than a million people worldwide. to achieve.

Let’s look at the other niche criteria …

Niche ideas with the highest commissions

Do you see the image above? That is a screenshot of Daisycon, a platform where you can find all kinds of companies that you can promote as an affiliate. What point do I want to make with this? You can find a product of 50 cents commission, but then you have to sell 200 of it a day to earn 100 euros a day. If you just immediately choose a product with 100 commission euros, you only have to sell one per day to earn the same. If you sell 200 of them a day, you will get rich quickly.

So research the product types that pay the most

tradetracker commissions informed

Above you will find a screenshot of Tradetracker, a platform similar to Daisycon. Sort by the highest amounts per click, lead or sale and let your choice depend on that. You see that financial products and marketing products yield the most.

So let your choice also depend on the amounts of money that are earned, and don’t just pay attention to ‘what is close to my heart’. Fine if you ‘stay close to yourself’, but then there is also a good chance that you don’t earn anything. Learn to see your business and private life as separate things so that you don’t let feelings guide you too much.

A good affiliate niche must meet the following 4 criteria

  1. Preferably, the products cost between 100 and 200 euros . Because if the products are more expensive than around 300 euros, one rarely makes an immediate decision to buy. Then it will take many days, so there is a good chance that your tracking cookie has been lost.
  2. Choose an evergreen niche. If you are going to review smartphones, you have not chosen an evergreen niche. Then you can throw away your reviews every quarter because there is already a new model. Rather opt for niches such as equestrian equipment, camping gear, travel gear, etc.
  3. You have to like the topic. If it is your hobby , it will be much easier, so you can easily outperform your competitors.
  4. Preferably, it should be a niche where people can easily spend money . Your own health? We certainly spend money on that easily. Earn money and get rich? We would easily want to make an investment for that. Think in those directions.
