Help Me Find A Niche!!!

Hello there!

I bought the SiteBuildIt! kit today and I’ve been using the BrainstormIt! feature, which lets you look up keywords and compare them using the “(demand/supply)*1,000=profitability” formula. I’ve looked up broad terms like “guitar” and “anime” and I’m using the keywords that I get back in order to figure out which niches are profitable and which aren’t.

Here are the broad keywords that I put in that came out with a high profitability:

anime, band, drawing, fiction, japanese, local bands, magic the gathering, manga, shred guitar, and writing.

Out of those broad keywords, I have compiled a list of keywords with the highest demand and the lowest supply (that’s a good thing, hehe). Note the inter-relationships between them. Here they are from least profitable to most:

“japanese nudities”
“ufo band”
“lap band surgery failure”
“briefcase in pulp fiction”
“japanese zodiac”
“beauty pop manga”
“baseball diamond drawing”
“drawing graffiti letters”
“local phoenix bands”
“drawing of a red rose”
“how to shred guitar”
“anime drawing guide”
“drawing giantess”
“harry potter slash fiction”
“free book writing software”
“pencil drawing of a fairy”
“rat drawing”
“las vegas local bands”
“pittsburgh local bands”
“train the band”
“write my name in japanese”
“how to draw manga hair”
“pencil drawing of a skull”
“buying magic the gathering cards”
“basic magic the gathering rules”
“anime expansion”
“dress up anime games”
“drawing character cartoon”
“japanese symbol dictionary”
“how to draw anime hair”
“male pregnancy fiction”
“how to draw manga eyes”
“magic the gathering wallpaper”
“magic the gathering rulebook”
“anime hug”
“how to draw anime faces”

The last one, “how to draw anime faces”, was the only one to go over 1,000,000 (it was damn close to 2,000,000 in fact). Let me explain. Remember the “(demand/supply)*1,000=profitability” formula I talked about earlier? In essence, I want to build a business around a niche that has a high demand and a low supply. The reasons for this are twofold.

First off, building a business around a niche that has a high demand is like selling ice cream in the summertime. You have a product that is in high demand and that can be immediatly bought by the customers. It’s much harder to sell ice cream in the wintertime than during summer.

Secondly, building a business around a niche that has a low supply will allow the little guy (me!) to harness a generous and steady stream of income much easier than trying to compete with all the big boys. It’s like trying to get food with big mean dudes guarding it.

Now getting back to the numbers. Although I don’t know the details, I can reason that the supply and demand figures are generated by the amount of search engine traffic and other websites’ keywords. Of course, the profitability is generated by dividing the demand by the supply and multiplying it by 1,000. Why 1,000? I dunno.

So what keywords do you think that I should look further into? I can’t wait to hear what you guys have to say about it!
