How I Discovered 28 Niches In 12hrs.

Filed in Niche Research, Ultimate Guides & Resources by on December 9, 2013

I'm constantly hearing from newcomers to internet marketing they can't find a niche market and yet I can't stop finding niches. I've discovered more than I can even begin to research yet alone turn into online projects.

Yesterday in the space of around 12 hrs I found 28 niches and I'm going to share not only how I found them but share the niche ideas too so you can go and research them and see if there's any value there.

I can't guarantee all of them will be worth pursuing but I'd be surprised if you can't find a few niches that would make good, profitable, projects.

If you want to grab an excel file with the niche keywords (and some related keywords) with monthly search volumes then you can unlock it by sharing on your favorite social media site below, alternatively if you just want to read the post scroll down.

1781 niches [new]


How I found these niches....

This was simple. I spent the day with my marketing hat on.

Everything that happened that day I took note of (just with a pen and notepad) and thought about whether it was something there was money to be made from.

I started as soon as I woke up. How did I feel? Very, very, tired as I never sleep well. That was niche idea number 1, bad sleep / sleep problems.

Definitely a profitable niche. You'll know yourself if you struggle to sleep at night you'll do anything to find a solution.

Then I had to go to immigration in Bangkok and extend my visa (I live in Thailand). I know for a fact there's a huge amount of people looking for visa information in Thailand based on the fact there's a huge forum dedicated to it called ThaiVisaForum, so definitely some potential here.

After the relatively painless immigration trip I went for coffee in my local coffee shop. Coffee is loved the world over and I know that people will pay good money for luxury coffees from around the world and accessories.

On top of that I bet there's a lot of people who'd love to own their own coffee shop and search online for information on how to open or run one.

The news was on in the coffee shop and they were talking about this condition called synesthesia in which individuals who suffer from the condition can TASTE words.

Whenever they hear a certain word a distinct flavor appears in their mouth. They interviewed people who had the condition and most said they would like to get rid of it. Is there a solution to it? I'm not sure but if there is people would pay for it.

Another section on the news was the growing fan base around the world of Nigerian music. Apparently it's now a global sensation. Haven't heard it myself but you can bet if there's a world wide demand for it there's money to be made.

As the day went on I started to feel lazy and unmotivated. This is a problem many people suffer especially when you are your own boss and there's no one to force you to do the work. If someone could give me a solution for this problem I'd bite their hand off.

I had a chat with a guy sitting next to me in the coffee shop and we talked about bad habits (I can't remember why) and that in it's self is a niche for sure with a ton of sub niches that could be explored, bad habits include biting nails, smoking, laziness.

In the evening I read a story on JKFs assassination, that in it's self probably isn't a profitable market (though it could be) but the conspiracy niche definitely is.

The evening news talked about gold prices and cameras. Two niches there for sure with different angles you could attack, such as gold trading and photography.

There was also a feature on Dr Who, there could be a niche in Dr Who collectibles?

I later met a guy who made money online running a translation business and outsourced all the work to a team of freelancers he hired from around the world. So many ideas there popped into my head for translation, language learning, outsourcing and so on.

The same guy told me he used to work on the oil rigs and I know for a fact that it's a sought after job that can be difficult to get. Perhaps people would pay for information or a course on how to improve their chances.

Neuroscience and Psychotherapy were 2 things I overheard in conversation by people in the restaurant I went to for dinner. I don't know much about either but there will be a niche market in there somewhere.

A friend later told me he was depressed, him and 121 million other people worldwide according to Google. Definitely a niche to be explored here.

Journalism was another topic I talked about with a friend, he told me he'd like to be one. I'm sure he's not the only one and there will be courses, books and guides for people looking to become one.

We went to see a stand up comedy show that night. There's a few angles here, how to be a stand up comedian, how to be funny, how to organize comedy events.

One of the comedians made a joke about male nurses. I wonder how many people would love to become a nurse and would pay for information to help them get there?

An article on trauma was featured in the newspaper I read. Anyone who suffers from trauma would do anything to get over it, if there's a solution out there it can be profitable.

I watched a feature on BBC News about bad parenting and how to be a better mother / father – I'm sure that's something many new parents would like to know.

Rottweilers were also featured on the news. The pet market is a huge industry and there's so many sub-niches that can be explored here. Training, teaching tricks, accessories.

I came across a webpage about 'how to be nice' and the Google keyword planner tool showed that 2,400 people every month in the USA were searching for that term.



On another website I saw a banner ad for 'job interview techniques' and the job market is a lucrative one, not just interview techniques but how to write Cvs, how to get a job in a certain market and so on.

I can't remember how I heard about this but I had written it down in my notepad – gall bladder problems. I'm sure gall bladder problems are not pleasant so people WILL pay for a solution.

Comedian Ruby Wax was featured on BBC News talking about depression without drugs – that seems like a gold mine of potential there if someone could offer genuine advice on how to treat it without medication. She also mentioned Alzheimer.

Watched a documentary after that about World War 2. I'm sure there are a lot of budding documentary makers out there and people who'd love to make one but don't know how. Lot of different things you could market to people there – how to write scripts, how to film, how to edit the film, equipment and accessories for sale.

World War 2 is also a niche in it's self. Memorabilia, history and so on.

I went to sleep not long after that and in less than 24hrs had 28 potential niche ideas that can be explored further.

Feel free to look into them more and see if you can profit from them.

    Hey Stuart,

    Just to let you know that I love your articles. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Gaurav says:

    hey Stuart,

    I like the way you give a pinch of uniqueness to each of your articles.

    For this especially, you made the task of finding a niche so easy.

    Now, to conquer any niche, we need to find where the specific audience lives online, right? 🙂 My question to you is: how do you do this? How do you find out which is the best way to target audience in a specific niche; Search engine, social media platform etc....?


    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Guarav....thanks for the comment. To find the audience get searching! Use Google, use technorati, use Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, Pinterest, AllTop, Boardreader etc etc etc. Go looking until you find's usually not too hard. Find out where they are in big numbers and get involved.

  3. Greg says:

    Well heck,.... it seems that i am now visiting your site daily. Attractive and useful information here, especially for a newbie like myself. My head is swimming in information overload associated with online marketing techniques. Everybody's got an angle and i am quickly discovering that this online community is inundated with tons of crooks. I have also discovered that the rules and red tape are closing in on web marketeers every year making it harder to make money online, ARRHHHGGG. I appreciate your site sir!!! Great stuff here. I will be in the background learning from here and ask that you continue to give back as you do, 🙂
    Thanks again.

  4. Jay Patel says: the niche idea is just around you. You just have to open your eyes and mind to see it. This will definitely change my thinking a bit.

    • NicheHacks says:

      Indeed Jay. There's niches EVERYWHERE. Open your eyes and ears, put the marketing hat on, and grab a pen and a pad (or your phone) and take not of EVERYTHING that happens that day.

  5. Sohil Memon says:

  9. Bernard says:


    Great list of niches and more importantly how you came up with them. I will try to stay focused with what is going on around me from now on.

    • NicheHacks says:

      Glad you liked it Bernard....try it tomorrow. Take a notepad and pen with you or your phone and jot down EVERYTHING that happens or that you see / hear / talk / think about.

      I bet you have dozens of niches by the end of the day

  10. Irfan says:

    Hey Stuart,

    Really nice article. But how about the SERP competition ? Finding niche ideas is fine as long as you get on the 1st page of google ? If top 10 competition is fierce, you would get no traffic from google ?

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Irfan,

      Forget about search engine competition. It's not important. You don't need to be on page 1 of Google or even ranked in Google to compete and make money online.

      Google is 1, very unpredictable source of traffic. You have no control over it and might never rank. So why spend all your time, effort and money on it?

      Instead get your traffic from other sources you can have more control over - email marketing, content marketing, paid ads, video, social or the hundreds of others out there.

      Search the site we've got tons of articles on traffic you can find out about.

  11. kevin says:

    Thanks for the great insight.
    As a newbie I tend to become complexly overwhelmed so much information just leads to total confusion. What I need is to clear it all away and start from scratch with one idea. I know this but later in the day in pops another email and I think that would be a good idea, HELP!.
    What I need is A. The idea which I have and B. A completely broken down step by step princess on how to get it to market. And when I say step by step I mean step by step (baby steps). We all know that when you have done something once the second time is easier and the third even easier until it becomes second nature, like it is for you.
    I find this so frustrating I know I just need to crack it once and it will all start to fall into place.
    Hey there's another niche (if only).

  12. Emma says:

    Hey stuart, i ve always find your posts interesting. Please can your posts be used on my blog as guest posts? What are the procedures

    • NicheHacks says:

      No Emma you can't put my posts on your blog. That's not even how guest posting works. A guest post is a new post you send to a blog that you want to get traffic from. For me to allow reposting of my posts to another blog it would have to be a very high traffic blog.

  13. Hi Stuart, great post and insight. I myself had a weekend just the same as you recognizing what and how I can change things in my business. Spent 1.5 days behind the desk and did some things that I have been trying for the last 12 months now I am pumped. Keep up the great work.

    Cheers Ray

  14. Inquirer says:


    I have been reading your articles coming in my mail about finding niches.

    There is one niche that I think could be or not be profitable i.e. "How to stop picking your nose".

    It is like a health related issue.

    I would like to know what is the traffic for this above particular niche.


    • NicheHacks says:

      Niche doesn't have "traffic". A website has traffic. But that's dependent on what you do to drive traffic. If you're looking for the google search volumes then check the Google Keyword Planner tool.

  15. West Chen says:

    Hi Stuart,

    from this article show the importance of mindset.
    when one complaining hard to find.niche but you can spot the niche throughout the day.

    if I cant get what I want,
    it is probably because I am not hungry enough.
