Forever Affiliate Review Part 4: Finding Niches to Promote
Hi everyone! The Forever Affiliate course by Andrew Hansen is now open to the public! The price is $67 for the first 9 days, after which it will be raised to $97.
This is part 4 of my Forever Affiliate review. In the previous part of the review I learned Andrew’s method for gauging the profitability and competition strength of a niche, and in this part of the review I will learn how to find niches that I’ll then check with the methods I learned yesterday.
I was actually listening to the videos during work today – they kept me awake during some really boring and repetitive tasks that I had to do. 🙂
Putting Stuff Into The Funnel
This is the second part of Phase 1 – here we’ll learn how to find products to put into the funnel we learned last time. Andrew says these methods don’t have to be done in order, they’re just a bunch of different techniques for finding niches and products to promote, and we can use whichever ones we like best.
I may have to change the names of the videos so that I don’t give away Andrew’s methods, as a few of the titles might be a bit revealing.
Video 1 – Bonus Video: Our Most Profitable Niches
The first video is a 20 minute long bonus video in which Andrew shows us what markets have yielded the best results for himself and his students following the Forever Affiliate method, and which markets and niches to avoid.
Video 2 – Follow The Trail
In this 18 minute video, Andrew teaches us an easy method for finding niches just as they’re becoming popular, so you get a head start and are ready when their popularity booms.
It’s quick and takes very little work, and then it will work on it’s own without you having to do anything! Why didn’t I think of this?! This method even makes use of one of my favorite sites, but I never thought to use it this way!
Video 3 – Looking Differently At Clickbank Offers
The 3rd video is 11 minutes long. It’s about finding products on Clickbank using a different method than what people usually teach.
I’ll have to try this out. I’ve never promoted Clickbank offers before, because I could never find niches that weren’t too competitive using the methods I learned from others.
Andrew also gives us an interesting reason why the products you find using this method are better, other than the lower competition.
Video 4 – Grabbing Products/Ideas From Others
This video is just 5 minutes long, and I don’t really like this method. It seems to me that it would be very hit or miss, and there are not that many products on this site.
Video 5 – Ferreting Out Products Affiliates Don’t Know About
The 5th video is 14 minutes long. In it Andrew teaches us how to find products or niches that a lot of affiliates don’t know about.
I love this method! It takes more work and more time, but I think this is where you can find real hidden gems, because most people won’t go to the trouble of doing this.
Video 6 – Affiliate Network Part 1
This video is 16 minutes long, and it’s actually part 1 of 2. This is a method to use if you don’t have a specific niche in mind.
I know the website used in this method – I actually first learned about it from Andrew, but I’ve never really used it, though I always meant to. Strange how in the years since then, this site has never been mentioned in any other courses I’ve bought. It’s always just Clickbank and Amazon, maybe sometimes Commission Junction and ShareASale.
There are 2 methods in this first video, but there’s nothing too special about the first method.
The second method uses the same site, but is much more interesting. Andrew gives us some keywords to search for or keep an eye out for, that might indicate very profitable products.
Video 7 – Affiliate Network Part 2
This video is part 2 of the previous one, and it’s 12 minutes long. This method uses the same site as the previous video, but this one is for when you already have a niche in mind.
This video covers 3 different methods. They’re so simple, but I don’t know if I would have thought of the first and last ones!
Video 9 – Sourcing “Ready to Pop” Niches and Affiliate Offers
It looks like videos 8 and 9 are swapped around. 9 is first, and it’s 10 minutes long.
Andrew gives us a website that we can use as a starting place for some potential niches; it’s a way to get a head start on certain industries or products that might get a jump in popularity very soon.
It’s a very interesting way to find products growing in popularity, and I wouldn’t have been able to do this if Andrew hadn’t shared this method with us.
Oops, Andrew forgot to do a recap at the end of this video!
Video 8 – Lateral Thinking Niche Discovery (And Technique)
Video 8 is 10 minutes long and covers how to find niches and keyword groups that are a bit different to the ones we looked at so far.
Wow, this is a good point! If we don’t do this, we could be losing out on very profitable niches. In the example he showed us, we would have thought the searches were 3,000, but they were actually at least 90,000!
Video 10 – Alternative to Amazon
This video is also 10 minutes long, and underneath the recording there’s a note from Andrew apologizing for the weird sound in this video, he says it only happened on this one. Lol, it sounds like he’s talking underwater or through a pipe or something.
I struggled to hear him for the first 2 minutes or so, then either the sound got a bit better or I just got used to it. It still sounded weird but I could hear what he was saying much more easily.
Hmm this is good to know. I’ll check this out, and maybe I’ll switch my Amazon sites to this method.
Underneath the videos, they have a bonus pack of pre-researched niches available for us to download. The pack contains 20 niches, each with keywords, monthly searches, competition, and affiliate program to use.
I don’t know if I’ll use one of these, they might get too difficult if a bunch of Forever Affiliate customers all use them. But maybe everyone is thinking the same thing and nobody ends up using them! A lot of people also buy courses and don’t implement them, so maybe I’ll consider it, but I want to try some of these methods that I learned first to see if I can find my own niche. It’s almost 2am again though, so it will have to wait until tomorrow after work.
End of today’s review
This last section of phase 1 was over 2 hours long, and I learned lots of great methods for looking for keywords. There were a couple I didn’t like so much, but they were balanced out by the ones that I thought were really good.
I think I forgot to mention that there are transcripts under each video. However, I think you really have to watch the videos to fully understand what Andrew is doing.
Tomorrow I’m going to implement what I’ve learned today to find some niches, and then if there’s time I’ll begin Phase 2: Testing and Validation. This phase includes setting up my sites, creating my content, monetizing my sites, and more. Remember to subscribe to my newsletter below so you don’t miss any updates 😉
See you soon!
