Section 1: Course introduction

Introduction to the course on how to find your business niche. Many first time entrepreneurs struggle with discovering the exact niche they should get into, and this online course is meant to help clear up a number of confusion points and help to structure the entrepreneur's thinking and help them find what might be the right niche for them. In my business coaching, I help many entrepreneurs, and one of the issues that comes up most frequently is how to discover the right business niche for the individual entrepreneur to leverage their skills, strengths, passions and interests. In this course, I cover many of the topics that I talk about with new entrepreneurs.

Section 3: More Niche Advice

I am a big advocate of looking within yourself and your background in order to discover the ideal business niche for you. But some people like to get inspired by the outside world. For that reason, in this tutorial I give tips and strategies for how to discover business areas that might be good to get into by observing everything around you, and helping you have more potential business ideas and niches that you can get into.


This part of the course gives you additional things to consider when trying to discover the best business niche that is right for you.

The mistake I made when choosing the niche for my first business

In this part of the online course, you will learn specific strategies for affiliate marketers, and how affiliates should approach choosing the business niche they should work in. In affiliate marketing, the topic of choosing the right business area to focus on is a big one because there are many nuances to consider. Many people choose the wrong niche, and then pay for it because that business area is either too cluttered and competitive, or isn't lucrative enough for them to make a good income, or is something that they don't actually care about enough to work on full time and be passionate about. So this part of the course focuses how to choose a business niche for affiliate marketing.


In this part of the online course I talk about a very common topic when starting a business, and that is how to brainstorm business ideas. Many people get new business ideas on a relatively frequent basis, but not everyone is able to figure out a good strategy for their ideas or understand where the weaknesses in the strategy might be. This is why it is always good to brainstorm your ideas with others. Of course, if the other person is also a relative beginner, it is easy to get lost and go off track. So in this tutorial I explain one strategy that I like to use to brainstorm my own business ideas, and for you to better discover your business niche.

Section 4: Actionable steps you can take

In this part of the course I talk about the importance of having real conversations with different people to get feedback on your business ideas and your niche. You should talk to many different kinds of people like industry professionals, peer entrepreneurs, your friends and family, and potential customers who represent the kind of people you will potentially be trying to sell to in the future if you do start your company. This way you will get many different types of perspectives.

How to tell if an idea is good & cheap market validation of business ideas

In this part of the course you will learn about the importance of looking deeper inside yourself to gain an understanding of what you would have more of an affinity towards, and what niche you naturally gravitate towards in your day to day life, or even your daydreams. There is usually something that you probably have more of a natural attraction to than other things, and that is a good place to focus on when trying to discover your business niche.


In this part of the course on how to find your business niche, you learn how to use social media and Facebook groups and online networking to find industry experts in your niche, and get their advice and mentoring. When you are looking for your business niche, it is very important to get expert feedback. It isn't always easy to get expert feedback, but in this part of the course, I explain how to easily get plenty of feedback from your business peers and industry experts.
