  • A nice detailed article. In my opinion, health and food niches will remain at the top. With new-new inventions in electronics, this niche cannot be underestimated. But it has a lot of competition.

    I recommend you should also include sports and outdoor accessories niche in your list too. I have a niche site on this and it is doing very well.

    Great post man. Thanks a ton.

    • Hey Navdeep,

      Yes! health and food niches always do well. And yes tech niche is getting too much competition these days. Sports and outdoor accessories will come under our last niche “online shopping”.

  • Health niche is always very profitable any day any time but one has to have a vast knowledge as you cant just write crappy health advice for people to read. Make money online what I love the most. I am now looking at other possible niche mentioned here.

  • Graham Lee says:

    I do hope I will get sales from my blog using the tips you gave. My affiliate blogs been running for months but products just sit there and it’s so frustrating getting no sales at all.

  • I have been looking for the profitable niches since long. Thanks a lot for sharing this. Is there a way to get a list of most profitable products and services for each niche?

    • It depends on which niche you pick not all niches have affiliate marketplace for you. In some niche, you can directly register with an affiliate marketplace such as CommissionJunction and ShareASale for blogging, internet marketing niche. But in many niches, you have to read other blogs for better profitable products for your blog.

  • Excellent article, it’s simple and easy to understand. Alok what do you think about WordPress niche ( theme, plugin, and hosting ), is profitable?

    • Hey Falendo, WordPress niche is one of my favorite niches as it has huge blogging scope and growing time-to-time. WP themes, plugins and hosting could be the best niche you could pick for faster growth. WP theme affiliate is always good to monetize your blog, plugins review and how-to are helpful to attract new visitors and hosting are one of the best affiliate niches in market.

  • I have learned one thing. Don’t run after free sources, they will soak up your time and keep you in a lose forever. You won’t learn anything for a really long period of time. Just invest some money and start a real-time course. You can search the course online. Find the best course possible, by the way, here is the course that I took. Highly recommended…https://tinyurl.com/kap8xqm

    • Well said, Shan. Same goes with affiliate marketing sales. Free tools attract good traffic but no conversion, but premium tools with good offer attract visitors to buy it and get you a good conversion which is an essential part of blogging.

  • Nice informative article, i think weight loss is a really great niche for affiliate marketing, as it is a common problem for most of the people in the world and widely searched offline and online.

    • Yes, Sud. These days people around the world are getting more concerned about their health. And therefore more health products are arising giving uplift to large health affiliate marketing.

  • Cody Meredith says:

    Thank you for the great tips. I think affiliate marketing does depend on the relevant and quality content ,traffic volume and appearance of the site.

  • Akmol Hussain says:

    Absolutely great post I loved the last point. You have to do something different rather than promoting affiliate products in the traditional matter.
