Hi, as you might know there are many marketers out there who want to sell you their Amazon Niche Site System, nothing false with that but I would like to help you for free.
You need more than a simple 10 step list to really build a website, so this post might take a while to read.
1. Niche Site Research
If this is the first niche website you´re going to build just start with something you really like. So if there is a sport you like, take a product niche and think about it. But of course you have to do some research, otherwise you would burn money very fast.
The basic formula:VKP(Sales Price) * X% commision = Y€/SaleSearchvolume (Short + Long) * 0,5 = TrafficTraffic * 0,3 = CTRCTR * 0,5 = CVR
This formula is not made up by myself, it´s from Markus Laue. He´s a trusted affiliate marketer in Germany, if you´re speaking german you can follow him on Facebook for more tips.
You want to sell camerabags
Your VKP is 30$ * 6% commission from Amazon = 1,80$ per Sale
Search Volume for the key „camera bag“ 12.100 * 0,5 = 6050 Visitors a month
6050 * 0,3 = 1810 clicks to Amazon
1810* 0,5 = 907 Sales
907*1,80 = 1632$ revenue per month
Important: This is just an example, the market for cameras and camerabags is extremely competitive, the example is just a simple calculation and you should never trust too much on your calculations. BUT it´s a good way to see if your niche is big enough to make money from it.
Tool of the trade:
Google Keyword Planner
Next Step: Domain:
Just go to your hoster, if you don´t have one, I would recommend Bluehost (No affiliate Link!) – but just go with the one you trust. Now you have to find a domain, and that´s not so easy.
How to check for domains:
1. Start with your mainkey -> keyword.com
2. Frankly your short keyword domain won´t be available, now you can try variations like:
But don´t go with misspelled stuff. And always look at .com. if not .com go .net -> .org. .info .
There is a really nice tool to find domains a lot easier -> http://www.peew.de – there are tons of filters. Start with searching normal expired domains, if there´s nothing that fits your niche go to the markets tab. It´s easy to use, so I believe that you´ll be able to find a domain without a complete documentation of the tool.
I hope this first short post could help you. Next post of the „Amazon Niche Site“ documentation will come soon. Have a nice day, don´t forget to have fun 😉
