How to Choose a Niche YouTube Channel Idea

In order to choose a niche YouTube channel idea adapted to your needs, take your skills and personal interests into consideration. You also need to consider how popular, seasonal monetizable, evergreen, and YMYL the niche choice is.

1. Chose a Niche You Are Interested In

It’s important to take your personal interests and skills into consideration when choosing a niche idea. It’s even better if you are part of the target market you would like to address. If you have a personal interest in the niche you chose, it will be easier to stay motivated to build a passive income stream. Learn more about passive income here.

2. Niche Down to a Micro-Niche

Some of the niche ideas we provided above may not be targeted enough to have a targeted following, so you may want to consider a niche within that niche (micro-niche). For example, instead of choosing “Fishing” you may choose “Salmon Fishing.” Here are some more examples of micro-niches:

  • Teaching: French as a Second Language
  • Basketball: Basketball Drills For Kids
  • Photography: Long Exposure Photography
  • Gardening: Pruning
  • Painting: Painting Portraits

3. Make Sure It’s Monetizable

You are probably starting a YouTube channel or niche site because you want to make money. In that case, ensure the niche you are interested in can make you money in some way other than just ad placement. See if there are affiliate programs you could promote or sponsorships related to your niche so you can generate passive income from your blog or YouTube channel.

4. Use Google Trends to Spot Seasonality

In the video above we demonstrate how to use Google Trends to see if a niche idea is seasonal or not. If you put a niche site or YouTube channel idea into Google Trends and see ups and downs over the months, the niche you’re interested in is seasonal. This doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but it’s important to be aware that if the niche you chose is seasonal, you will have expected swings in traffic and views throughout the year.

5. Popularity

You can also use Google Trends to see how popular the niche is. If there are no searches for it in Google or YouTube, it’s probably best to choose a different idea or micro-niche. If the overall trend is heading downwards, it’s important to know that this niche is losing in popularity. Keep this in mind when making a choice.

6. Evergreen

Evergreen content is content that will still be relevant in a couple years from now. So for example, if you write a recipe, it will probably still be relevant in a few years from now. However, if you write about the latest VR technology, it will probably be outdated in a few months. It’s important to keep this in mind depending on how passive you want your business to be. The less evergreen, the more often you will have to create and update content.

7. YMYL: Your Money or Your Life

Your Money or Your Life (YMYL) topics are Some topics that may be very competitive and hard to rank for. These include personal finance, health and fitness, eCommerce and news. It’s important to establish EAT or Expertise, Authoritativeness and Trust to truly stand out in these tougher niches.

You can learn more about building a successful niche blog or YouTube channel, building EAT and more in Project 24 by Income School! We also have guides on how to make passive income from YouTube and from niche sites on our blog. Here are some things to keep in mind about the niche ideas we discussed above:
