If you have been in the affiliate marketing sphere for a while and unfortunately have not been making any money, you would probably be sold to the idea that all good niches are taken. You have been told that the weight loss niche is a great market to go into only to find that competition is fierce. Talk less of the fitness niche… This can be so sad that you do not have anywhere to look!
Take heart and thank God you are here. I am going to share with you some untapped niche markets that will give you great niche ideas. I will also share with you methods and ways you can use to tap into any niche, even seemingly competitive ones and you also become competitive in any niche.
In brief both Digital Worth and Income School show easy to follow steps to make any niche conquarable, there are some noticeable differences between them but in the end when you follow either approach you will win. To find out more about these approaches – Click here for Digital Worth or here for Income School.
Coming back to what I was saying before let me give you a hint, by methods and ways I am talking about;
- proper and in-depth keyword research that will uncover these untapped niches,
- use of auto-suggested and LSI keywords,
- strategic keyword targeting with content writing and marketing,
- using whitehat and highly effective SEO techniques for high rankings in search engines – think Schema Markup, strategic internal linking, etc.,
- starting with one simple affiliate marketing strategy before diversifying into other strategies or affiliate programs – hint: micro niches and amazon affiliate sites,
- short-cut to reducing labor intensive and time consuming tasks like building a website from scratch, finding products to promote, etc.
A niche can be broad or narrow or even require a certain angle to approach it. This is what I am going to be talking about here. I will show you untapped niche markets in 2019 and also give you great niche ideas to approach each market.
Untouched Niche Markets 2020
Just so that we are on the same wavelength, think untouched to mean low competition, unpopular, no saturation compared to other niches.
If you are looking for niche market ideas in 2020 start with the below mainly for 2 reasons, one reason with a condition – the condition being, the second reason is valid if you are an Amazon affiliate. When you know how to build a successful affiliate website make successful Amazon affiliate websites by choosing niches that have a higher commission rate with a mix of low commission rates but with high traffic volumes.
Before we get to the niche ideas let me show you the niche selection strategies of the above approaches.
Digital Worth vs Income School Project 24
There are a lot of similarities between Digital Worth Academy and Income School Project 24 that we will pick for the purposes of this comparison. To make your own conclusions read this article in its entirety and listen to the webinars fro both.
Without even buying the courses you can learn so much that you can implement and still see results. Just from using information from the webinars and combining it with what we already know we will be the first to say making money online is true!
Digital Worth Approach
One of the ways Digital Worth start on a niche is when you already have a niche idea in your mind, same niches we have shared below. Say if you want the fitness niche you simply use their software called Commission Wizard to select for you profitable products in the fitness niche. See the video below how it does it.
This approach differs with our method discussed in the Profitable Niche Markets With Low Competition article. Here you choose products that you already have an idea of how much commission you can get. While our method is based on choosing bestsellers which is almost always a win for as long as you follow other guidelines you will see below. At the same time you will never run out of good niche ideas.
Income School Approach
One of the best methods they use to select a niche and I like it is turning what you already know into blogging.What they are saying is say you were buying something online and you did w research before buying the item.
They give an example of a boat which Jim, one of the co-authors of the course called Project24, started a blog about boats after he bought his.
Before buying it he had made a research then he realized that he could share the same with other potential buyers. So this way you start a blog or affiliate website with what you already know. In the webinar they go into details of how to start writing the blog.
Our Approach And Take On Above
In a some way there are similarities between our approach and both methods and we will share our ideas as we look at some of the best niche markets below. Each niche idea can be approached differently but in the end the fundamentals are the same – robust structure, sound SEO, informative articles, good user experience, etc.
What we have noticed with both approaches as we listened to their webinars their SEO strategies differ but fundamentally the same. With Digital Worth they emphasize on writing an informative in-depth article even if means hiring a freelancer for as much as $50 an article. Then they will show you how that article can bring back that money many times over. They have a goal for each article earn at least $76 per month, and they have a step by step process to achieve that goal.
On the other hand, the Income School Project24 approach is what I call the one-third approach. They divide the kind of articles to write for your blog into 3 categories, with each category having 10 articles. So before you can say you have started or launched, your blog must have 30 articles and they call this the seed stage. On the seed stage they are not worried about which products to promote though you would have selected a niche.
(Go to the video to learn about this…)
With our approach, we start with 10 products which we believe are in demand from the research we would performed – with Digital Worth you know before hand the amount of commission you are likely to make. And these products have have minimal competition which you can beat. Income School do not start off with products their initial concern is getting traction to your website, getting traffic first!
Instead of starting with low competition products they start with low competition keywords that will be much easier to rank for to attract that initial traffic. So all 3 approaches complement each other. Let us share our method in more detail and see how you can use it as a standalone, or with Digital Worth Approach or Project 24. I think you will get even better results if you combine it with either.
What I have noticed with either method they do not say anything about site structure at least in their webinars. I think starting off with a good website structure is one of the best ways to win especially when you rely on search engines for traffic. It appears the structure falls into place as you go along, but that is also one of our initial steps.
We have created all our micro niche starter websites with a solid structure, adding content to them is a breeze and if there is need for additional categories it is also easily done. Read How To Plan An Affiliate Marketing Website and learn how to create amazon affiliate niche sites from scratch.
General Approach To Niche Market Websites
Where possible use all 3 approaches you see here to really turn any project into the best niche for affiliate marketing in 2020. This is what I mean use our method of how to find low competition niches such that you can hone in on a niche market. Next if you have joined the Digital Worth Academy, look for additional products and at the same time you will have a much clearer idea of how muc commission you can make.
The next step we recommend have a select of 10 to 30 products in the same micro niche such that you are able to develop coherent product niche ideas. By this I mean you can start making out your affiliate website structure.
Mostly the main categories are Brand, Price Range, Uses, FAQs, etc like common product features. See this example of how to build an affiliate website using WordPress where we give an example of planning out a Television’s site. This is before even loading up WordPress let alone install plugins. The selected 10 to 30 products will give you an idea of the general feel of the site.
However, be mindful that you might have to expand to another set of products, still in the same niche though because you should not narrow yourself into a micro niche. So we recommend that your WordPress installation must have pages and posts (these are standard with every installation), then;
- products section using WooCommerce plugin – this will turn the website into an eCommerce website and have ability to add as many products as possible.
- FAQ Section using an FAQ plugin – there are several such plugins that create a dedicated section for frequently asked questions. As you will later this ties in very well Project24 strategy.
How To Use Different Sections Of The Site
Following the strategy discussed in the Project 24 webinar, what we call the One-Third approach, this is how we propose that you use each section;
Page: Use pages to write articles that are targeting 2 to 4 word keywords, what Project24 call Pillar post articles. These are long articles that can even go beyond 3500 words and highly researched.
Posts: Use posts to write articles that target long tail keywords which can be covered in 2000 to 3500 words, even longer is fine. These articles can be considered as subsets of the Pillar page articles. This is where you can write posts like Best X Products In To Buy In 2020, etc. Using Projet24 terminology, this will be Staple Posts!
FAQs: Use the FAQ section to answer question type keywords and can be answered in 1000 to 2000 words, even shorter. This is we liken to what Jim and Ricky of Project 24 call Response Posts in their Content Mix strategy and they suggest that these are the type of articles to start with.
Choose an FAQ plugin that allows for categories such that it is much easier to expand when you niche up.
Products: Use Products section to post product articles, not reviews but rather in much a similar manner you will find on a merchant site like Amazon. Write this as an affiliate marketer with SEO in mind. This can be as long as possible depending on the amount of information available.
This approach we believe is all encompassing and not limiting such that when you develop more niche site ideas it is easy to incorporate such ideas. At the same time should you have more niche product ideas it is also easy to add more products in the products section.
Best Niches For Affiliate Marketing 2020
The niches below attract a commission of 8% which is one of the highest commission rates, some niches will give you a 2% commission which is very low. For a commission this low you will need to be selling huge volumes of the products. This means you will need to be an expert in looking for low competition, high traffic keywords list and that can be hard.

Fitness is a broad niche and it will be almost impossible if you attack it head on. It is one of the top niche markets one can go after since this an evergreen niche. People always want to be fit, to exercise, etc.
One way to approach it is to pick a sub-niche within the broader niche. There are several fitness niche markets, example, Rowing Machines! Let us see how you can start a fitness blog beginning with rowing machines.
Follow the method we explained above – General Approach To Niche Market Websites. However, when it comes to FAQs rather research on FAQs around rowing machines specifically instead of the general fitness niche.
Do the same as you add more products from different micro niches with the fitness niche. That way your affiliate website will be well themed and can easily become an authority.
Home Improvement is a huge market that has some top affiliate marketing niches to go after. Use the same approach as above, start narrow and go wide with time. With this niche you are more likely to find untapped niche markets in 2020 because it has some innovative products like home security systems.
Some consumers convert their homes into SMART homes and there is a wide range of products that are new in the market making them an untapped micro niche. Below are some examples.
Home Security Systems
The home security market is wide open for the taking, there is diverse choice of products in this broad niche. And to let you in on another secret, it is also tied to the smart technology discussed above. People want to tune in to their smart phones to see what is happening in the yard. So a smart security device is a good niche market to go after.
Household is a huge niche and you can start with cleaning and look at vacuum cleaners or even go narrower into robotic vacuum cleaners. Possibilities and combinations are endless. This might as well be the holy grail of the best amazon affiliate niches for 2020.
Vacuum cleaners have been there since long back and it may seem it does not qualify as an untapped niche market. But I disagree… Have a look at the robotic vacuum cleaner niche especially Smart ones i.e. the ones that are Wi-Fi enabled.
Robotic Vacuum Cleaners is great niche to go after more so that these items are not cheap. You can find units going for $800.00. And as an affiliate market we thank that in terms of commission. How much commission is that when you sell such a unit?!
The Kitchen might as well regarded as a household niche is broad and full of affiliate marketing niches in 2020 that you can go after and dominate. You can start with the cooking appliances and write about the new gadgets like Air Fryers, Slow Cookers, etc. There are many more kitchen niche ideas other than cooking appliances, think meat grinders, meat thermometers, kitchen scales,etc.
Kitchen appliances are like consumables, every kitchen must have them. But as a marketer you should look deeper than that… don’t only think pots, cookware, cutlery! Think Smart and new technologies…
Kitchen appliances like Smart Instant Pot, Smart Sous Vide, Slow Cookers, etc… these are kitchen appliances in case you are wondering what Sous Vide is… I know I was when I first saw it. Do you know how to find such weird profitable niches? Go to Amazon.com and play around the categories and go narrow in each category, you will come across things Sous Vide, slow cookers niche, etc…
There is also mention of new technologies… air fryer! That’s another niche I never knew existed until I played around Amazon Kitchen appliances category. You must agree these are some great niche ideas in truly untapped markets. Kitchen Appliances, air fryers in particular, should be on the top of your list of untouched niche markets in 2019 because new products and technologies emerge more often.
In the same way outdoors is a huge niche such that it is impossible to run out of outdoor niche ideas.
Outdoor Power Equipment
This is the OPE niche. People want to go green and are do not want to use gas powered equipment where possible. Manufacturers saw a space here and took full advantage of it. You should follow suit. And here are some of the great niche ideas!
Cordless Outdoor Power Equipment like cordless Chainsaws, Trimmers, Nail Guns, etc. You catch the drift…!
Smart technology and smart devices are relatively new in the market and the good thing is everybody wants to go smart. By everybody I mean people who would want to buy the smart gadgets.
You will find smart devices often controlled by voice using Alexa or other technologies out there and these are great to build an affiliate marketing website around them. So what is so great and so untouched about this niche? Here are some great niche ideas.
Think Smart Water Sprinklers
Smart Water sprinklers are the in thing right now even before 2019 for several reasons.
They are ripe to go after because everyone wants to save water. Not only save water, certain municipalities have water restrictions and a smart sprinkler controller makes it much easier to adhere to water restrictions in those areas.
Further some areas go to the extent of offering rebates on purchase of a smart water sprinkler device. Not only that, they are smart! You can use voice commands to control or operate it, you do not have to go out!
So if you want to win in this market look at smart devices, starting with Smart Water Sprinklers, some other products that incorporate the SMART technology are listed below.
Well we could go on and on in our search for untapped profitable niche markets. The above 5 should give you enough to go round especially that they are profitable niches with low competition, so you are bound to make some money. For the whole year you may not run out of great niche ideas within the same markets.
Affiliate Marketing Hurdles
However, I must add, as much as these are great niche ideas and profitable niches with low competition in 2019, there might be a few stumbling blocks especially when you are not yet a seasoned affiliate marketer. I am talking about setting up a review website, writing content and uploading it, getting traffic to your website and making sales.
These I know are some of the worst stumbling blocks an internet marketer can come across in their career. Further if you want to start fast you might have to spend more money than normal – read this article here, How Much Money Do You Need To Start Affiliate Marketing?
That being said, how to make money using the internet requires some elbow grease contrary to what some people say, the same is true with using the affiliate marketing model. So if you do not have the basics, there will be some learning curve. If you have the basics you will just need to rinse and repeat until setting up a review website, writing content and uploading it, getting traffic, etc. becomes second nature.
At VirincSolutions.com, we can help you with some of these hurdles that you need to overcome. We have some packaged products that can shortcut some of the stumbling blocks experienced by most affiliate marketers. With these products you will be able to use them immediately and at the same time learn instead of learning first (which can take forever) them implementing later (which at times never happens).
Keyword Research That Uncovers Untapped Niche Markets
Keyword research is the first and basic step one has to take when looking for ideas for niches. It can be shallow or very thorough either way at least you must know how to do it and do it properly.
We have Niche Research Packets which are in 2 parts and we call them Basic Niche Product Research and Advanced Niche Research. The former is essentially finding keywords related to products you wish to promote as an affiliate marketer. We have packets that are ideally made for Amazon Affiliate marketing and you can easily build amazon affiliate niche websites from them.
The latter, Advanced Niche Research Packets, are an in-depth general niche research exercise which potentially uncovers untouched niche markets and is capable of giving you more niche ideas for a website.
For clarity, say you want to start an Amazon affiliate website on Pressure Washers, the Basic Niche Product Research Packet will give a list of top selling products (according to Amazon BestSellers at the time of research). Then each product will have a list of keywords that search use when looking for that particular product. Depending on how popular the product is that list may range anywhere from 1 to over 10 different keyword (or, in this case, product name variations).
These product variations are generally auto-suggestions from Google search engine. Read more about our Basic Niche Product Research Packet here…
Following the same example, when we come to Niche Research Packets, the research will be on the broader niche – Pressure Washers. As we conduct this research using different keyword research tools, the process will uncover micro niche ideas like say “pressure washers under 200”, “for car wash”, gas, electric, telescoping wands, etc. Basically you can use these packets to expand an affiliate website or create several micro niche sites based on the broad niche.
The other most important use of the Niche Research Packets is that they can be used to categorize your affiliate site. That is, with the uncovered keywords you can create categories on your wordpress affiliate site to group products according to their features, uses, makes, etc. It is important to know how to plan an affiliate marketing website and the best way to start is with a well researched niche.

How To Tame Popular Niche Markets With Auto-Suggested And LSI Keywords
Our affiliate marketing niche research is thorough in that it includes auto-suggested and LSI keywords. We found the need to include this not only to make these packets complete but to make content articles, when written with these sprinkled in them, very themed around the subject matter.
When you write a themed article, that is an article with relevant auto-suggested and LSI variations, search engines will identify and class it against other content correctly. This will increase the chances of the content to be ranked and show up in SERPs higher for the keywords. This also has the effect of targeting several keywords with one article.
