A Quick Question
What would you rather start?
So what is a niche website?
An Internet meaning of a niche website is a site that focuses on a narrow group of people in a larger market with a common specific interest. While targeting a very specific term that people use on search engines, a niche site offers its visitors helpful and quality content that answers a question or solves a problem.
It means that it is a website that targets a smaller amount of people with common interest. It does make sense because the meaning of niche is:
Niche - denoting or relating to products, services, or interests that appeal to a small, specialized section of the population.
Notice the words they used, "Small, Specialized". So you might be asking; if it is small if it's specialized, how can I earn money on that?
Have you ever heard of the saying, "It is easy to be a big fish in a small pond than to be small fish in a big pond"? It is true in the fact that competing in a small market, when you are just starting is much easier than to compete in a very large market, with big competition. Furthermore, keeping it small makes you focus more and if you are laser focus you can do more things that are unimaginable.
