About Niche Hacks

NicheHacks helps every day people find their perfect online business idea and win back their freedom, even if they don't have any business experience (and I'll prove it to you below.)

Hi, I'm Stuart Walker, owner and founder of NicheHacks.

In my former life I was a pot washer and call centre office monkey with no skills or experience who is now a location independent online business owner (you can read all about that story here).

For now let me tell you more about NicheHacks and how it can help you...

NicheHacks is  a team of niche site owners, affiliate marketers, digital product creators, freelance writers, online business owners and location independent marketers.

All of the NicheHacks team are living our dream lives of being free from money worries and the 9 to 5.

If you're reading this chances are you're working 40+ hours a week at a job you aren't happy with for not enough money to pay the bills let alone save or enjoy life.

You have a lack of time to spend with your family and doing the things you love.

You know you need to find a profitable niche and launch an online business if you want to win back your freedom and independence.

But with lack of time, information overload, internet scams, and all the conflicting information out there on the web you're fighting an uphill battle.

And that's where NicheHacks.com comes in:

I'm here here to help you find a profitable niche that's perfect for you.

Then teach you the the online marketing skills and knowledge you need to run a successful online business.

And cut through all the noise so that you avoid the scams and low quality junk products and only get realistic, actionable, advice that you know works.

So that you can turn your new found niche and skills into a sustainable online income that gives you the momentum you need to replace your day job income.

And with the aim being to eventually turn online marketing into your main income source and get on the path to living the life you always dreamed of.

A life where you've won back your freedom and gained back your independence.

A life where you've built a successful and profitable business that generates income passively.

And a life where you have more time to spend with your family and enjoying doing the things you enjoy in life such as hobbies or travel.

Look, I won't make you any guarantees as we've no idea what you'll do with the information on this site if you do anything at all with it.


I believe that if you're willing to be realistic, work hard and smart, and put the time and money in to building your perfect business and life than you CAN be successful.

Especially with the NicheHacks advice, knowledge and training as a guide.

You're wondering what's in it for me, right?

Well …

Both you and I found internet marketing because we wanted more freedom in life, yeah?

So just like yourself I am are here to make money, win back more free time and live the life I always dreamed of.

And there's no reason why both you and I can't work towards that goal and succeed together.

If we're both making money and wining back our time then we're both one step closer to absolute freedom.

And that's a win win scenario for everyone.

Sound good to you?

Then let's win our freedom back together and build our dream lives.

Just a heads up though:

Despite the word "hacks" in the title there are no easy, money-making, methods or get-rich-quick-schemes to be found here.

Or any "blackhat" or spammy short term techniques.

That stuff doesn't exist or is short term at best.

The "hacks" part means I've made things as simple and easy to understand as possible, for everyone, no matter what level they are.

And have cut out the lengthy niche research process by revealing and analyzing 1000's of profitable niches. 

I am all about helping you to build long term, evergreen, sustainable niche businesses that will earn you money today AND in years to come.

Otherwise what's the point, right?

And this IS business despite the fact it's online.

So it must be treated like a business with investment of time, money and effort.

There are no easy roads to success so please be realistic that this will take time and investment on your part.

I prefer to be realistic with you than give you false hope of overnight internet riches.

Still happy to be here?

Good then read on...

How This Blog Will Help You Succeed Online...

If you want to learn how to find, red hot and profitable, niche markets as well as access niche 'hacks' (shortcuts to dominating your niches of choice) you're in the right place.

If that wasn't enough you can also expect  done for you niche research reports and top notch affiliate and internet marketing advice and tutorials.

I publish epic resources, give away trade secrets, and post information for free that most other internet marketers charge big bucks for.


So Why This Blog?

There's a lot of poor and re-hashed information in the internet marketing world and so many people promoting anything that will make them money.

I want to try and create something different where you find advice that you can trust and product recommendations for products that simply work.

On top of that I saw a demand for providing 'niche hacks' in the form of done for you niche research reports, content, and hot niche ideas that I think newbies and seasoned marketers could benefit from.

If you're new to the online marketing world I know you'll find a lot of good advice here. Even if you're not new you'll still find a lot of useful stuff.

So Who The Hell Is Stuart?

My name is Stuart Walker, the wrong side of 30, originally from the UK but now location independent and I founded NicheHacks.

I'm not a guru, I'm not a millionaire.

I don't have a mansion and a fancy sports car (nor will I pretend to by posing in fake photos to make you think I'm the man) I don't know everything and won't pretend to.

What I do have is more than 6 years of internet marketing experience.

I live wherever I please and have travelled the world.

And done a lot of cool things from scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef to trekking to Machu Picchu to celebrating Carnival in Rio De Janeiro to exploring the salt flats of Boliva and much more.

You can learn a lot more about my history and challenges I faced here.


My Online History...

Websites for fun...

My first venture into running a website was when I was only 12 or 13 years old and I started an 'e-fed' (e-federation) which is basically an online fantasy wrestling league ran through message boards.

I then went on to run various Yahoo groups on topics such as the Neo Geo Pocket Color handheld game console which was a niche Japanese games console designed to compete with the Gameboy but it never took off outside of Japan.

I messed about with various groups, websites and forums for years just for fun but it never dawned on me you could make money from any of it.

Eventually somewhere in my mid teens I lost interest in running websites or forums and didn't explore it again for around 10 years.


Life Before Affiliate Marketing

For years I worked mind numbing office and call centre jobs dreaming of travelling the world and making money online but I couldn't seem to find anything other than scams or dodgy ways to make money.

I hated working those low level jobs, doing tasks that should have been performed by a monkey, and being somewhere I didn't want to be.

Finally after a lot of searching I discovered affiliate marketing, somehow I'd over looked this idea for years. Within a couple of weeks I knew this was the way forward.

It took a while but I built a series of websites. There were many ups and downs. I created many websites, some of which were a success and some total failures.

I've been involved with affiliate marketing, product creation, email marketing, SEO, video marketing and more. You name it I have dabbled with it to some extent.

Now I focus on a few select websites, mostly niche blogs / authority sites, and mostly on non SEO traffic.
