As an affiliate marketer, what are the challenges that you face while starting up?

I am sure the first decision you would have had to make is deciding the niche that would yield maximum returns. Though not a rocket science, but identifying the best niche for your affiliate marketing surely needs some smart thinking.  Your entire efforts could simply go waste if you select the wrong niche.

Seeing the trends from the end of last year and beginning of 2013 here’s a list of 7 hot niches for you for 2013.

7 hot niches 2013

Tablets/ Mobile Devices

The sale of Tablets and Mobile devices is rising and is expected to rise even more in 2013. These devices are capturing the market at such a good pace that it would be really unwise to ignore this niche for affiliate marketing.  Let me give you an example, suppose you go to an electronic store, you can easily feel the difference between the time today and in 2010. The difference is that today majority of the stores are marketing tablets and mobile devices instead of personal computer desktops as it was in 2010 or before that.

People who already have this as their niche in 2012, I am sure had a good time in 2012 and will definitely have a nice time this year too. The competition will definitely increase this year as many new affiliates will focus on this profitable niche, but you don't have to worry as the demand is very high and increasing too at great pace. Therefore, it will hardly make any impact in holding back your profits.

Another indication is the vast usage of mobile devices and tablets. People can carry these devices even into the washrooms if required, which was impossible in case they had a laptop for that purpose.

 Therefore, if you are planning for a good and profitable niche to enhance your earnings, you can surely go for the Tablets and Mobile devices category. Check the demand for this niche on Google trends to get clearer and factual picture.

Thanks Nitish. Well, first I'll tell you what is "Forex trading" in case you are not much familiar with the term. It provides investors with the ability to make quick profits due to small changes in one country's currency. Due to the time differences around the world, forex trading takes place continuously because as one market closes another one opens. The best part of buying the niche on Forex trading is the constant demand of it that means you can keep this niche for a long time and keep earning out of it. Do let me know if you have any more doubts related to Forex Trading. :)
