Oh the niches you could enter. Here are another two that have been on my mind lately – both outstanding opportunities for people looking to start new sites at the moment.
Different to “virtual reality” where the user is immersed in a virtual experience, “AR” is a category of products that adjusts (augments) your experience of actual reality.
The most popular product in the category are the once dorky glasses.
According to Google trends this niche has been more consistently popular than I expected. Over 5 years search volume has been pretty steady. There’s been an upswing since 2016 but nothing major.
The big change has been in the technology. It’s better, people have grown more accepting and it’s brought a range of new products to market, many of which now have search volume and market awareness of their own by now.
Case in point #1: Vufine
This is just a brand of augmented reality glasses that sell for $199 on Amazon.
Low competition, and a list of long tail keywords to go with it.
Like the “smart home” niche I talked about in the last edition, I see this as a niche with lots of education potential. The number of ways to do cool things with your AR devices will keep increasing and there will end up being personalities and authorities in that space that are making money teaching, reviewing and comparing.
There’s also this thing that has higher competition on the short tail term, but still plenty of long tail opportunities and sells for over $700 on Amazon.
You just won’t run out of ways to monetize in this market in the next 5 years.
Like it or not, with changing legislation around the world, the market for cannabis products is exploding.
CBD oils are a huge product (CBD oil having 320k searches a month at time of writing) but a look at this page on Trendhunter gives a sense of just how many ideas and products are cropping up in this space:
This is a market where in general, price points are lower, but volumes are higher. Oil products seem to be cheaper, ranging from $20 to $50. Capsule products (like some of the ones below) can push over $100.
There are already small brands with their own bits of search volume, and low competition, like these:
The latter even having what seems to be a private affiliate program (which I came across a couple of times in this market and I would expect to see more of, before there is the kind of full mainstream acceptance that means Amazon products – and the associate program – will dominate the affiliate space.)
But there are shorter tail keywords that aren’t yet out of reach either…
This market has the virtue of re-ordering potential and if you got with the right program nice and early I can see the possibility for a profitable relationship into the future.
It will have education potential (do I need oil, or capsules, or should I use a vape?), it has the controversy element that would allow extra promotional opportunities, and it’s pickup up steam rapidly. 3 things that make it a strong opportunity for content business entrepreneurs like us.
That’s it for April.
I hope you saw something interesting in these!
