Magazines are a good source of successful niche ideas as magazines only survive if people buy them so titles that have lived a long time demonstrate the popularity of a particular market.
The key indicators of a good niche market based on magazine information I’ve found are:
- range of magazines published on the subject
- different subscription options
Here at the Dr Nitch Niche Marketing Center our preferred source for printed magazine ideas is magazines.com although you can also use Amazon too.
The Magazines.com site holds a huge range of published magazines across many categories that can be used to add niche ideas to your list or used in your research process to test the popularity of a particular market.
To find potential niche ideas you should browse around the different categories on the site and review the range and variety of magazines published.
To start using Magazines.com to look for niche ideas just go to the link below:
Alternatively, if you want to look at magazines on Amazon then you can use this link:
By browsing through these sites you will be able to identify:
- number of magazines published for each niche market/sector
- popularity of niches based on the ‘Top Titles’ section
- varying subscription offers
For example, when I looked at the Magazines.com site and browsed through the Sports & Recreation category and looked inside the ‘Boats’ magazine section I found there were twenty five titles alone on different aspects of Boats and boating.
Just looking at the titles and subjects the most popular titles covered gave me niche ideas such as:
- trailer boats
- water ski boats
- cruising by power boat
- choosing a luxury boat
- using a chart plotter
Magazines are a key niche indicator for you to use to generate ideas given that each one published represents a proven niche market. And please don’t stick to the obvious, mainstream titles but look instead at the more specific titles on subjects you’d not normally consider.
