25 Niche Site Ideas: Niche Online Business Ideas

In this blog, I’m giving you 25 niche site ideas. These are business ideas from my personal list that I have researched, validated, and considered pursuing. I strongly considered creating a website in the below niches, but unfortunately, I don’t have enough time to start a new niche website every day so I’m sharing my niche site ideas with you!

These 25 niche site ideas are websites that you can start today to begin generating passive income online. I want you to pick one of these ideas and run with it.

This blog will be updated frequently, every couple of months with my “learn online business series”, as these niche site ideas get too competitive and as new niche online business ideas arise.

And remember, if you haven’t already, download my five favorite niche business ideas with step-by-step instructions on how to launch each business AND step by step instructions to find and validate unlimited niche business ideas so you can rinse and repeat the process to find your own niche.

Idea #1: Great Dane (the pet niche)

I call this the pet niche because really, any type of pet can be your first business. For me, I love dogs, and I’ve created a profitable blog in the dog space that I sold for $95,000. So, I’m going to focus on dogs for this niche site idea.

The trick here is to pick a specific breed. Don’t create a niche blog about dogs in general, or cats in general. Make it about rat terrier dogs. Make it about sphynx cats. Make it about hedgehogs, iguanas, or clownfish. Pick something really niche and focus on that. Become the expert on that breed or type of pet, bet the go-to resource for everything about that pet.

If you own a pet, what type of pet is it? If it’s a snapping turtle. Great. That is your starting point. A niche blog about pet snapping turtles.

For sake of example, let’s look at great Danes. Simply because I have three pet great Danes and I’ve already researched this niche.

368,000 people per month are searching online for the term “great Dane”. With that search volume, there has to be an opportunity for a niche somewhere.

Looking further, I found the following opportunities:

  • Great Dane puppies for sale – 9,900 searches per month with low competition
  • Great Dane price – 5,400 searches per month with low competition
  • Great Dane adoption – 3,600 searches per month with low competition
  • Great Dane names – 1,900 searches per month with low competition

This is just four examples from the hundreds of keywords that people are searching for relating to the great Dane breed each month.

Using Long Tail Pro, I can see that each of these keywords has a keyword competitiveness score under 35, which means there is very little competition for these keywords. This means, you can go in right now and write a couple of quality blogs to begin ranking and driving organic traffic to your blog with these keywords.

Based on these keywords, we can determine that people are searching about how to adopt or buy a great Dane. With this, you could become the go-to expert for people that want to own a great Dane.

Idea #2: Vegan Soup

My wife and I are vegan. So, in the winter in Maine, we eat soup like everyone else in the North East trying to stay warm.

The problem is, we can rarely find any variations of vegan soup in the grocery store. Almost every soup at the store is made with chicken stock. Even regular vegetable soup, it’s still made with Chicken stock. Who does that?! So, this past winter, we spent months Googling various vegan soup recipe trying to make our own concoctions.

This piqued my interest because I know based on my previous research that there is a ton of opportunity in the food niche.

I went back to Long Tail Pro for my niche research. I found that 8,100 people per month are searching for “Vegan Soup” and almost NO ONE is ranking for this keyword! It has a Long Tail Pro keyword competitiveness score of 29. That is really low for a root keyword with only two words like “Vegan Soup”.

I looked deeper and found more relevant keywords with high search volume and low competition including:

  • Vegan cookbook
  • Vegetarian split pea soup recipe
  • Vegan Mexican soup
  • Vegan soup brands
  • Best vegan soup recipe

People are searching for Vegan soup and there are very few reputable websites creating content in this niche. There is a clear niche website opportunity here. This is just one of the many opportunities in the food niche. 

Additionally, as you can see in the image below (from JungleScout’s Web App), Vegan cookbooks make a killing on Amazon. I could make a vegan soup cookbook as my flagship product in this niche.

Idea #3: Fantasy Football

There is a lot of opportunity in the Fantasy Sports Niche.

This can be any fantasy sport, but for sake of research and personal preference, I picked fantasy football. In reality, you could pick any fantasy sport, something like fantasy hockey or fantasy golf might be less competitive and easier to build a niche site.

But for sake of example, let’s look at fantasy football. Hundreds of thousands of people play fantasy football. I’m a fantasy football junky. I follow ten different blogs and five different podcasts, and you better believe I spend money on their premium products telling me who to draft.

It’s a competitive topic. You are competing against ESPN, NFL.com, and Yahoo. 450,000 people per month are searching for the keyword “Fantasy football”. On Long Tail Pro this keyword has a keyword competitiveness score of 64. That is really high. Unless you are creating a website bigger than ESPN, you probably won’t rank for the keyword “Fantasy football”.

This is a good example of finding a niche within a niche. When I look into this niche site idea, I find a couple of interesting keywords that have little competition:

  • Fantasy football trade analyzer – 27,100 searches per month with low competition
  • Fantasy football trade calculator – 6,600 searches per month with low competition
  • Fantasy football trade evaluator – 1,900 searches per month with low competition

Now that sounds like a niche within a niche. Trades are big in fantasy football; I am always looking for the best trade opportunities. Become the go-to expert for fantasy football trades, create a trade calculator, and build your niche site!

Idea #4: Golf Photography

Now here’s an interesting niche site idea. Golf photography. specifically, golf ball photography.

There are a ton of niche opportunities within Golf, but this one is just so niche and specific, it’s beautiful.

I don’t know what this is or why people want it, but people are searching for it. And you better believe it’s a niche.

This is one of those niche site ideas where you need to do a little market research to figure out what people want from this niche. Do they want to buy photos of golf balls? Do they want help learning to take professional photos of golf balls? Are these Amazon FBA entrepreneurs that are selling golf balls and need professional photos for their Amazon listing?

I have no idea. But it’s a great example of a niche opportunity.

Idea #5: Keto Diet

There is a lot of opportunity in the nutrition niche (and also the food niche).

The trick to building a niche site in the diet and health space, is to pick something specific. Don’t start a nutrition blog, start a blog about a specific nutrition and health topic like the Keto Diet.

Keto is a hot topic. It’s one of the most popular diets in the world, followed by millions of people.

But Keto is too competitive to be a niche itself. 1,830,000 people per month are searching for the keyword “Keto diet”. There are thousands of people competing in this space. This is a case of finding a niche within a niche. With nearly 2 million people searching for this term per month, there is plenty of room for you to carve out a niche.

My friend Kevin Davis and his wife Dena are in this niche, with their website and podcast Our Ketogenic Life. Kevin is a Physician; he is carving out his own niche in the Keto space with his deep understanding of the diet. He wrote a top-selling book about Keto and he’s now growing a following through podcasting. He is leveraging some powerful connections to grow a large following and is now a Keto coach getting referrals each time he helps a new client.

Let’s look at where you could carve out a niche in this space. Here are a couple of niches within the niche:

  • Keto diet crock pot recipes – 27/210
  • Keto dessert recipes – 31/480
  • Vegetarian keto diet recipes – 32/480
  • Keto diet Indian recipes – 31/390

You could be the go-to resource for everything vegetarian Keto.

There is a lot of opportunities here. You can generate revenue as a vegetarian keto coach, you could write a book of keto dessert recipes, you could create a membership site to share keto recipes. There are a lot of opportunities to find a niche within a niche here.

Idea #6: Pontoon Boats

I talk about this niche in my ecommerce case study of the boating niche. There is opportunity here. In my research I found the following low competition topics in the pontoon boat niche:

  • Pontoon boat weight – this keyword has a monthly search volume of 1,000, and there is very low competition for this keyword with a 14 KC score on Longtail Pro.
  • Pontoon boat for rent – monthly search volume of 27,000 and 22 KC score on Longtail Pro (low competition).
  • Pontoon boat kits – monthly search volume of 720 and 22 KC score on Longtail Pro (low competition).
  • Pontoon boat trailer – monthly search volume of 3,600 and 29 KC score on Longtail Pro (low competition).
  • Small pontoon boat for sale – monthly search volume of 1,900 and 30 KC score on Longtail Pro (low competition).

This is five subtopics that I could focus on to build a business in the pontoon boat niche. Add that up, and it’s over 30,000 monthly searches. If I can reach even half of this audience, 15,000 monthly visits, I’m confident that I could create a profitable business. Going even more niche, I could focus on one of these topics like “Pontoon boat for rent”.

Idea #7: Xactimate

This is another idea that came from my book Use Your Job to Quit Your Job. Xactimate is a software program used in the insurance industry. In the book, I use SEMRush to analyze the potential market.

I found that there are 18,100 searches per month for Xactimate (a software used in the insurance industry). Even better, I see there are 2,400 people per month searching for “Xactimate training”. That is great, if I’m selling Xactimate training, I know there are approximately 30,000 people per year that are directly looking for training. Since I know this is a corporate software, I know I can charge a premium. I estimate I could sell a live training, that I host once per quarter, at $1,000 per person. That means, I only need to sell 15 seats to my training per quarter to generate an annual profit of $60,000. That is absolutely doable.

Idea #8: Bonsai Tree

This is a major example in my book Step One. In fact, it’s the business idea I choose in my analysis throughout the book.

There is a lot of opportunity in the plant niche. With bonsai trees, in particular, I absolutely see the niche business potential. For reference, this is the analysis criteria I set for myself when analyzing this niche.

Here’s why I see opportunity in the bonsai niche:

The root niche is bonsai tree, which has 301,000 searches per month, more than enough to carve out a niche. I could get even narrower and look at the root niche of juniper bonsai (12,100 searches) or Japanese maple bonsai (10,000 searches). Each of these topics could be its own niche business, but I would prefer to focus on the larger niche of bonsai tree, which definitely meets the criteria of more than 10,000 searches for the root niche.

I can clearly see more than five subtopics in this niche, each with more than 500 monthly searches. Just a quick look shows me subtopics like bonsai tree for sale (27,100 searches), bonsai tree care (12,100), juniper bonsai (12,100), bonsai pots (12,000 volume), Japanese maple bonsai (10,000), Ficus bonsai (8,100), and bonsai soil (4,400). There are clearly more than five subtopics with 500 searches apiece.

For this analysis, in Long Tail Pro I sorted the KC column from lowest to highest. I wanted to see which keywords Long Tail Pro identified as having the least competition. I found a lot of opportunity here, with plenty of green and yellow highlighting, which means there are an ample number of keywords relating to bonsai trees that do not have a lot of competition. The Long Tail Pro results reveal keywords like how to grow a bonsai tree from seed (590 searches, 24 KC), juniper bonsai turning yellow (170, 22 KC), watering bonsai (720, 30 KC), Japanese bonsai pot (480, 29 KC), bonsai mango tree (590, 25 KC), oldest bonsai tree (4,400, 23 KC), juniper bonsai care indoors (320, 26 KC), best indoor bonsai tree for beginners (140, 24 KC), bonsai tree cost (720, 29 KC), and bonsai tree types beginners (390, 30 KC). There are clearly a lot of viable content topics that I could blog about in the bonsai niche.

Lastly, I looked at existing products and services being sold in this niche. To conduct this research, I simply went to Google and I searched bonsai tree and bonsai tree care. I could have picked any of my seed keywords, but I chose these two because I knew there would be products and services sold for these subtopics. From these two searches, excluding the brick-and-mortar bonsai nurseries, I found dozens of online businesses in the bonsai care niche. I can see dozens of products and services being sold in this niche, including bonsai care tutorial courses, bonsai care books, bonsai seeds for sale, bonsai accessors for sale (pots, soil, plants, etc.), and DIY home bonsai garden kits. There are dozens of online businesses making money in this niche, this meets the criteria and confirms that other businesses are selling products and services in this niche.

Idea #9: Parakeet

Another idea in the pet niche. This topic meets the criteria of the Long Tail Pro analysis that I set for determining the viability of a niche.

This meets the criteria of 10,000+ search volume for the “Root” niche, with 165,000 people per month searching the keyword “parakeet”.

This meets the criteria for subtopics with 500+ search volume as I see subtopics including monk parakeet (14,800 and 46 KC), parakeet care (5,400 volume and 38 KC), and parakeet food (2,900 volume and 41 KC).

Lastly I see dozens of keywords with a KC of 35 or less and 100+ search volume including “how to train a parakeet” (1,000 volume and 31 KC), and I see plenty of other businesses already selling products or services in this niche. This meets the criteria of a viable niche market.

Idea #10: Pit Bikes

Another niche idea that meets the criteria of the Long Tail Pro analysis.

This meets the criteria of 10,000+ search volume for the “Root” niche, with 80,000 people per month searching the keyword “pit bikes”.

This meets the criteria for subtopics with 500+ search volume as I see subtopics including pit bikes for sale (14,800 volume and 19 KC), 110cc dirt bike (12,100 volume and 24 KC), dirt bike goggles (8,100 volume and 41 KC), pit bike 125cc (4,400 volume and 24 KC), pit bike parts (3,600 volume and 34 KC), and kids pit bike (590 volume and 30 KC).

Lastly, I see dozens of keywords with a KC of 35 or less and 100+ search volume, and I see plenty of other businesses already selling products or services in this niche. This meets the criteria of a viable niche market.

Idea #11: Gardening tools

Any hobby can be your business. Even gardening!

Gardening tools is another good example of finding a niche within a niche. I started by researching gardening but found that it was too broad, so I picked a specific niche subtopic within gardening. I chose gardening tools (there were a lot of other niche options in gardening such as “gardening tomatoes”).

Gardening tools meets the criteria of the Long Tail Pro analysis. This meets the criteria of 10,000+ search volume for the “Root” niche, with 74,000 people per month searching the keyword “gardening tools”.

This meets the criteria for subtopics with 500+ search volume as I see subtopics including garden hoe (33,100 volume and 48 KC), best wheelbarrow (4,400 volume and 32 KC), garden tools for kids (4,400 volume and 40 KC), and best gardening tools (3,600 volume and 44 KC).

Lastly, I see dozens of keywords with a KC of 35 or less and 100+ search volume such as “common gardening tools” (170 volume and 21 KC), and I see plenty of other businesses already generating revenue in the garden tool niche. This meets the criteria of a viable niche market.

Idea #12: Archery

This is a good example of a business idea sparked from the brain dump question “What sports do/did you play?”.

Archery meets the criteria of the Long Tail Pro analysis set in Step One.

This meets the criteria of 10,000+ search volume for the “Root” niche, with 74,000 people per month searching the keyword “Archery”.

This meets the criteria for subtopics with 500+ search volume as I see subtopics including archery target (33,100 volume and 41 KC), archery bow (8,100 volume and 41 KC), archery games (5,400 volume and 35 KC), archery gloves (3,600 volume and 35 KC), and kids archery set (3,600 volume and 37 KC).

Lastly, I see dozens of keywords with a KC of 35 or less and 100+ search volume such as “best archery bow for beginner” (260 volume and 23 KC), and I see other businesses already generating revenue in the archery niche. This meets the criteria of a viable niche market.

Idea #13: Acrylic Paint

Here’s a good hobby business idea. This is another example from my book Step One.

Acrylic paint is a good example of finding a niche within a niche. I started by researching art and painting but found it to be too broad. In my research, I saw an opportunity to narrow the scope with the subtopic of acrylic painting, which meets all the criteria of the Long Tail Pro analysis.

There are more than 10,000 searches for the root niche; 201,000 people per month search for acrylic paint.

There are plenty of subtopics with at least 500 searches, including acrylic painting ideas (49,500 searches, 35 KC), acrylic painting for beginners (14,800, 29), acrylic painting on canvas (8,100, 35), step-by-step acrylic painting (2,400, 28), and acrylic water painting (880, 29).

There are dozens of keywords with KCs of 35 or less and at least 100 searches, and I see plenty of other businesses already generating revenue selling acrylic painting courses and acrylic painting products. This idea meets all the criteria of a viable niche market.

Idea #14: POS Systems

I wrote about this in my book Use Your Job to Quit Your Job. Giving the example of the retail and hospitality niche, how you can find a business idea using your day job.

I found that there is a lot of opportunity in the POS space (point of sale software and products).

22,000 per month are searching for the “toast POS”, 14,800 per month are searching for the “square POS”, thousands more are searching for the lightspeed POS, Upserve POS, and Touchbistro POS.

This could be your niche. You could pick one of these and specialize on that POS. As of writing this book, the Square POS offers an affiliate program. You can earn money by recommending this POS to local restaurants. You can sell you service to set up the entire POS for the restaurant. You could publish training guides and courses teaching small businesses how to easily and seamlessly integrate this POS with their business.

Idea #15: Actuarial Exams

This is another idea from the day job niche.

There are a couple of actuarial designations and something like fourteen actuarial exams. There is the SOA, ASA, and CAS actuarial designations.

For reference, 1,600 people per month are searching for the term “SOA Exams”. Each exam has a couple of hundred people per month searching for the exam.

Using Long Tail Pro, I see lots of opportunities here to rank for keywords like “ASA Designation” and “CSA exams”. There is very little competition here, someone could easily go in and create content to outrank the competition to begin driving organic search volume to a website.

There is a clear need for better study material here.

Idea #16: CAPM Certification

6,600 people per month are searching for “CAPM Certification”. Hundreds more are searching for “CAPM Exam” and “CAPM Training”. People are searching for this exam and there is little competition in the space.

Reading the study material reviews on Amazon, people are always complaining about the PMBOK Guide (the main study material for this exam). On Amazon, it is rated with 3.3 stars. 27% of the reviews are one-star reviews. Check out the reviews here. People HATE this study material.

Someone can easily come in here, begin offering a better study material, and carve out a nice niche website.

Idea #17: PMP Certification

Both the CAPM and PMP are issued by the Project Management Institute. The PMP uses the same study material as the CAPM. It uses the PMBOK guide. As I mentioned above, people HATE the PMBOK Guide. Someone needs to create better study material. Maybe flashcards, a study guide, an online course, a video course, or even 1×1 coaching. There are so many opportunities here for someone to create a website in the CAPM Certification and PMP niche.

60,500 people per month are searching for the keyword “PMP Certification”. 5,400 people per month are searching for the keyword “PMP exam”. That’s a ton of search volume and interest in the PMP! There are lots of opportunities to create a niche website for the PMP Certification.

I leveraged the Project Management Institutes this for one of my websites in the Agile Exam space. You can do the same.

Idea #18: Information Technology Certifications

There is a lot of opportunity in the information technology space. There are a lot of designations and certifications popping up. It’s an incredibly fast-growing and competitive industry. Here are a couple of the most popular information technology certifications:

  • ITIL certification – 18,100 people per month are searching for this certification.
  • CCNA certification – 12,100 people per month are searching for this certification.
  • CISSP certification – 6,600 people per month are searching for this certification.
  • CSM certification – 6,600 people per month are searching for this certification.
  • CISA certification – 4,400 people per month are searching for this certification.
  • MCSE certification – 2,900 people per month are searching for this certification.

In full disclosure, I haven’t done too much research into these certifications. I’ve never worked in IT so this isn’t my strength, but in doing my research for new exam prep niches that I could target I kept coming across the information technology niche. I couldn’t escape it! So I want to make you aware of these certifications and the opportunities in this niche. If you work in IT, there is a TON of opportunity for you here.

Idea #19: CIA Certification

The CIA Certification is the Certified Internal Auditor certification. NO ONE is taking advantage of this niche.

1,900 people per month are searching for the term “CIA Certification”. Another 1,000 are searching for the term “CIA Exams”.

And no one is targeting these keywords. Most of the blogs ranking on the first page don’t even put this keyword in the title of their blogs. I could go in right now, write a blog on The Entrepreneur Ride Along website, and rank for the keyword “CIA Certification” within a week. That’s how little competition there is.

And guess what, the CIA review course costs between $400 to $900. You could be generating $900 per sale from one online course. 10 sales per month for 12 months is $108,000 in annual revenue.

Please, someone, take advantage of this niche. It is just sitting there waiting for someone to come in, create a different product, and make thousands in passive income per month.

Idea #20: Six Sigma Certification

I give a full breakdown of this idea on Episode 14 of The Entrepreneur Ride Along Podcast. It is definitely a niche site idea I have considered pursuing.

I found that over 18,000 people per month are searching for “Six Sigma Certification” and “Certified Six Sigma”. That is PLENTY of people searching for this type of certification, that is plenty of volume to create a profitable business teaching people how to earn their Six Sigma certification.

People are also searching for:

  • Six Sigma Green belt exam
  • Lean Six Sigma Yellow belt
  • Six Sigma online
  • Six Sigma training
  • Six Sigma Black Belt certification cost’

Lots of relevant search terms here. It’s clear to see what people are searching for relating to Six Sigma. People want information about each “belt” of the Six Sigma! You can provide that. There are a lot of ways that you can differentiate yourself in this niche, even if there is other competition out there.

Idea #21: Inflatables Summer Toys

I had conducted this research over the summer. So, a lot of results came back for inflatable summer toys. The only downside to this is the sales are seasonal, but if you are selling thousands of items in the summer months then you are making enough revenue to sustain the whole year!

Below is some of the research I conducted and my analysis on inflatable summer toys that could be viable Amazon FBA niche products:

  • Inflatable Limbo – this is a summer game. It’s an inflatable limbo set.
  • Inflatable lounger – this is the Amazon FBA product that I chose. I no longer sell this product, but I did sell over 500 units of inventory.
  • Inflatable pool floats – I found a TON of niche inflatable pool floats that could be feasible niche products. Including “pineapple pool float”, “inflatable pizza float”, “inflatable flamingo float”, and “unicorn pool floats”.

I give a full breakdown of each of these products, and why they offer profitable niche potential in my Amazon FBA Niche Blog.

Idea #22: Skateboard Bearings

Here’s an interesting Amazon FBA niche that I know nothing about. Skateboard bearings. I found two types that would make good niche products:

  • 608-2RS skateboard bearing
  • 608zz skateboard bearing

I haven’t touched a skateboard in the last fifteen years, so I personally was not a good fit for this niche. For someone familiar with bearings, or anyone that skates, this is a very viable Amazon FBA niche.

I give a full breakdown of each of these products, and why they offer profitable niche potential in my Amazon FBA Niche Blog.

Idea #23: D&D Dice

There are a lot of opportunities within the gaming niche, especially D&D.

Dungeons and Dragon (D&D) dice, in particular, is an Amazon FBA product with potential.

I was quite surprised by the results when researching this niche. There was a clear opportunity for a niche product here. There were a ton of different ways to differentiate in this niche.

Looking into the keywords we found the following niche opportunities with Dungeons and Dragon dice:

  • D&D Dice Bulk
  • Wooden D&D Dice
  • Rainbow D&D Dice
  • Metal D&D Dice
  • Galaxy D&D Dice

All of the above keywords had good keyword search volume and limited competition.

I didn’t go too in-depth into the Amazon research for Dungeons and Dragon dice because I knew this was not a product that I could succeed with, having limited experience playing Dungeons and Dragons. That being said, someone with experience or someone invested in board games could easily take this niche idea and create a viable business with D&D Dice through Amazon FBA.

As you can see below, people are making upwards of $50,000+ per month selling D&D Dice sets. Not bad for a product in the gaming niche!

Idea #24: Slime Storage Jars

Slime Storage Jars sold surprisingly well on Amazon. Some of the best sellers were selling Slime Storage Jars in bulk packs of 6 or 12. I suspect that these are being purchased for children by moms, dads, and teachers. There is definitely an opportunity to sell Slime Storage Jars in the Amazon FBA Niche.

Idea #25: Hanging Wall File Folder

Hanging wall file folders sell well on Amazon.  I see these hanging all over doctors’ offices, veterinarian offices, and at the dentist. Of all the Amazon niche site ideas listed in this blog, this one is probably the hardest to rank for. There is a good amount of competition, you could probably rank in the top ten, but it would take a while to climb into the top three spots.

I did a full analysis of this niche in the Amazon FBA Niche blog.

More “Content” Niche Site Ideas

I often call this the “blog niche”, it’s the basis of each of my websites because I look for a niche topic that I can build a blog around.

This could really be called the “content” niche because you can use this same concept with YouTube or a Podcast, it doesn’t have to be a blog (but a blog is easier to utilize SEO for organic traffic).

For a full breakdown of the blogging niche, and a full detailed analysis of each idea, see my 10 niche blog ideas.

The above-mentioned niche site ideas are just a few that I’ve researched. There are a TON more out there.

One of my strategies to find blog niche site ideas is to see what’s selling on Flippa. Flippa is a website where you can buy and sell websites. I like to go to Flippa for research. I go to Flippa, apply a couple filters to make sure I’m only looking at websites that generate substantial traffic, and I analyze the websites that have been selling recently. There are a lot of sites still in their early stages on Flippa, where people find a niche and create a basic website then sell the website to other entrepreneurs. This is a great way to find niche site ideas. The sites that are being sold on Flippa are still in their early stages. Most of them never amount to anything, so you can find a niche or keyword on Flippa and then go create your own site in that niche (or buy the website on Flippa).

Here are just a couple of the niche site ideas that I’ve found on Flippa. These are a few good online business ides for beginners. These are viable niche site ideas that I researched but never created. I recommend you take a look at these blog niche site ideas:

  • Buy pickup trucks online
  • Insanity workout schedules
  • Best pocket knives
  • Tropical fish aquariums
  • Fishing license locator
  • How to make honey
  • Philippines travel

There are thousands of niche opportunities out there. If you are still wondering how you can find your niche product idea, then I recommend you download my list of the top 5 niche sites that I would create today (if I had time).

More “Exam Prep” Niche Site Ideas

This is my favorite niche site idea. I used this idea to create a small, but incredibly profitable business.

I call it the “exam prep niche”. In the exam prep niche, we are creating a business by providing study material, guidance, and advice to those pursuing a particular set of exams, designation, certification, or licensing.

If you’ve been following along with the niche site ideas case study, then you already know all about the exam prep niche, my website AssociaePI, and how I’ve generated over $280,000 in passive income in the past few years with this one simple niche site idea.

Here are a few ideas to leverage a certification or designation, to turn it into a niche business.

The above-mentioned certifications and designations are just a few that I’ve researched. There are a TON more out there. Here are a couple more ideas that I have done preliminary research on that I recommend you check out:

  • Bar Exam (legal)
  • PE Exam (engineering)
  • FE Exam (engineering)
  • CFA (finance)
  • CPA (accounting)
  • PHR certification (human resources)
  • CDAL certification (health)
  • NRP certification (health)
  • CISA certification (IT)
  • CCM certification (contract management)
  • CDL license (commercial driving)

Conclusion – My Five Favorite Niche Site Ideas

We covered a TON in this blog. This thing just keeps growing as I build my own niche sites and come across new niche sites and small profitable business ideas.

This can be overwhelming. I know. And once you choose a niche, it can be even more overwhelming getting started! To help, I simplified things. I put together one free resource covering my favorite niches. These are the once that I would create today if I had more time.

I highly recommend you download this free resource. It’s the five niche sites I would create today (and why I would choose each niche). Plus, I’ll tell you exactly what to do to get started with each of these five niche site ideas.

You can also check out my series about how to make money online for beginners without spending anything.
