For as long as you are creating your own success online, you will be online a lot. You will become deeply immersed in the needs and foibles of your niche market. As a result, you should choose a niche market that you enjoy being dedicating your time to. Just because you want to get rich doesn't mean you have to hate doing it. In fact, the opposite is true. You see, becoming successful online will take a lot of time. The more you enjoy the time you spend online, the more productive you will be, and the faster you will make things happen online.

What do you enjoy? What are your hobbies? Write a list of all your hobbies, of all the things you enjoy doing. This should be a list at least 20 items. Next write a list of things you really enjoy reading or learning about. This should be at least 10 items. Now, cross off half the items on the list, leaving the items you most enjoy.

Now, go online and begin to research these areas. Use the search engines. Look at the first 10 results for any keyword related to each item on your list. Are there good quality products in that field, or are there some gaps? Use Overtures's keyword inventory tool to see how often a particular keyword is searched. If a keyword is searched 50 times a month, that is probably not a great candidate for your niche. But if it is searched 500,000 times and there is not great information in the top ten results, maybe this will be a good niche for you.

Look up your potential niche area and the word 'forum' in the search engines and find some forums for your niche. Read through them. Is there a lot of current interest in your niche?

Look up the forums in Alexa. Do they have rankings of less than 100,000? Or less than 50,000? (the lower the ranking, the more traffic it gets) If a forum is ranked less than 100,000 and certainly if it is ranked less than 50,000, there is probably some solid online interest in your niche.

Don't be too concerned to decide on the perfect niche. Just one that has a lot of interest online, that interests you personally, and isn't flooded with great products. Once you finish this product, you can always create another in another niche market.
