If you are into Affiliate Marketing, you must have heard about the amazing opportunities in niche sites. Why don’t we take it one step further and talk about how to build a niche store for your niche site.
The advantages of working in a niche market are great, not only for the seasoned affiliates but also for many newbie marketers. A niche is a specialization or an extended category of a broader more competitive idea. For example, Halloween Costumes is a very competitive market with some of the most influential names taking up the front pages of Google. With the age, website optimization skills and reputation these leading stores have built in the market, it is next to impossible for an affiliate to just pop out a little online store selling Halloween costumes and beat these websites’ rankings.
So what do you do? You build a niche store around the larger concept of Halloween costumes. You can specialize in ‘Plus-size Costumes’ or maybe ‘Costumes for Pregnant Women’. This will put you up against lesser competition and other niche stores like yours which will be easy to beat if you play the SEO cards right.
You can either build a store on a dedicated domain, or you can have a single page on your blog where you sell products related to the topic of your blog. If you do not have any domains to your name yet, you can even insert your niche stores into your squidoo lenses.
You must be thinking you are not ready for all that comes with handling products or customer service, but just like affiliate marketing, you do not have to own anything. The only difference between this and the traditional affiliate marketing is that you are solely selling physical products. It is as simple as that.
So how do you build a niche store if you don’t know anything about ecommerce and other technical aspects of it? Lucky for you, I have been in that place and you can use my research to help you out. The way to put up a store with dynamic products is to use data feed. It is the easiest way you can build a niche store in just a couple of hours if not less.
It is very easy to do. I have done it many times and had good results. The stores you build with datafeed look professional, work like a charm and can get addictive.
