101 Resources To Discover Trending New Niche Ideas

100 resources discover hot niche ideas

Are you ready to find your very own hot and profitable niche?

Or, are you just confused about what a "niche" really is?

I understand it can be tricky at times because you're just not sure where to look or what you should be looking for.

Seriously, I used to think I had to try and find out about some secret topics no one else knew about.

That's not true, a niche is simply a topic that a specific group of people spends money on. And you yourself are a person who spends money on things.

Which means, if you pay attention to what's going on around you on a daily basis and check some established sites to see what people are already interested in and spend money...

...then never again will you struggle to discover niche ideas.

And with these 101 resources in this niche market ideas list, you're going to be off to a flying start...

1. A Day In The Life Of You - With a Notepad And a Pen.

Carry a notepad around for a day and take note of everything that happens, things you hear, read, and talk about and any issues you have in the day.

Guaranteed you'll have a nice long niche market ideas list.

Remember, a niche is simply a "topic" or "interest" that a certain group of people spends money on.

So basically anything that people are willing to talk about, discuss, read, or do is a potentially profitable niche you can make money from.

You just have to start paying attention to all the opportunities around you every day and start to think about whether they are something people spend money on and you could profit from.

2. Look at Your Hobbies And Interests. [Recommended]

These are often the best niches to enter in IF they are able to be monetized as you already know a lot about it and are passionate.

If your hobby is rock collecting then perhaps not but if you're into a popular sport or activities which you spend lots of money on then it's likely there's a lot of other people out there who do the same.

And taking it a step further, you could go to either Amazon or eBay and check out what they recommend to you (based on your browsing/shopping history with them).

These are usually best sellers and stuff that really sells well.

3. Look at Your Problems And Challenges (Health, Life, Dating, Money etc)

What problems do you face on a day to day basis?

What health issues do you have?

Any other issues like relationships or money?

Other people do too and your advice could be valuable to them.

Problem niches are the most profitable.

4. Watch the news, TV & Documentaries

The news is an excellent source for finding out about obscure niches you'd never hear of otherwise.

I've discovered untapped sleep disorder niches from watching the news in recent months.

I don't specifically watch the news to find niches but I pay attention whenever it's on.

Also, documentaries and TV shows offer insights into popular topics.

If someone is willing to spend millions on a TV show it has to be a popular and profitable niche.

And you don't need much time to become an expert in any niche.

In fact, you only need 4 weeks as Chelsea proves here on how you can become an expert in any niche within 4 weeks.
