When I came upon that little word -- Niche -- I wondered,
"what is this thing called a Niche -- and most
importantly, can I find my own niche too?
What is A Niche
Well, a niche, is a service or product, that fills
an unmet customer's need -- that is more of a
speciality. You are not competing with the
masses for a sale on an ebook or an affiliate tool.
Instead, you carve out a small corner of the
market for yourself on the Internet.
Well, the definition was simple, however, finding
a niche that I felt comfortable with was going
to be a chore, because I wanted to avoid the
affiliate programs -- and if possible find a company
that privately carried their own affiliate
program -- without the quota's and the many rules.
How to Find A Niche
When I started looking for a niche market, I started
to make a list of my hobbies, what I liked to do,
what I was interested in and what I was familiar
with -- to help me brainstorm. If this little
task does nothing else, it will definitely give you an
eye-opener to who you are.
Anyway, when the dust finally settled I realized that I
wanted a niche where it would assist others -- perform
a service of some sort, and would compliment my
current website. Not very decisive, but I had a direction.
Then it happened, just by chance, or maybe it was divine
intercession -- anyway, I received a personal email from
one of the assistant manager's from DentalPlans -- stating
that she liked my website and wondered if I would be
interested in becoming an affiliate.
I looked at their website and the affiliate plan -- and
I knew that this affiliate program was for me.
Here's What DentalPlan Offers
1. High conversion rate -- 1-5% percent conversion
ratio from click thrus.
2. Commission -- $40 to $50.
3. Extremely high EPC.

9. Free Web templates (standard and editable), banners, affiliate links
10. On-line tracking of stats
11. Multi-tier possibilities (Need to ask about it)
This is what I or any affiliate is looking for in a program! If you would like to join, you can go to my website at
or if you would like to look at one of their editable website's
go to http://www.myaffiliateplace.biz/Affiliate_mydentalwebsite.htm
and look around.
Anyway, I found my niche -- it compliments my affiliate website.
So yes, you can find your small corner of the Internet and find
a niche product. But always remember -- even though this may have seemed difficult -- your chore is not over -- you must
market, market and market.
To you success.
