Welcome to Part 1 of the niche site ideas series!

Today, I'm introducing you to the "exam prep niche".

This is my favorite niche site idea. I used this idea to create a small, but incredibly profitable business.

I call it the “exam prep niche”. In the exam prep niche, we are creating a business by providing study material, guidance, and advice to those pursuing a particular set of exams, designation, certification, or licensing. If you’ve been following along with the niche site ideas case study, then you already know all about the exam prep niche, my website AssociaePI, and how I’ve generated over $160,000 in passive income in the past three years with this one simple niche site idea.

There are THOUSANDS of niche exams, designations, certifications, and licenses with hundreds of thousands of people taking the exams each month. Off of the top of my head, I think of the CPA, CFA, CNA, Real estate license, underwriter licensing, Fundamentals of Engineering (FE), and CLU. And those are just the big-name designations and licensing that I could think of without doing any research!

Use your day job, use your college exams, use the designations you earned five years ago, use any exam you have taken to create exam prep materials that you can sell online. It’s such a simple, small, profitable business idea that not enough people take advantage of.

It is the perfect opportunity to leverage the niche nature of these designations to create your niche business that generates tens of thousands of dollars in passive income per month. It’s possible. I’m doing it now.

Niche Site Ideas – Part 1: The Exam Prep Niche

  1. 1. PART 1: NICHE SITE IDEAS THE EXAM PREP NICHE In this presentation, I’m giving you three types of niches that I love.
  2. 2. NICHE SITE IDEAS – EXAM PREP This is my favorite niche site idea. I used this idea to create a small, but incredibly profitable business. I call it the “exam prep niche”. In the exam prep niche, we are creating a business by providing study material, guidance, and advice to those pursuing a particular set of exams, designation, certification, or licensing. There are THOUSANDS of niche exams, designations, certifications, and licenses with hundreds of thousands of people taking the exams each month. Off of the top of my head, I think of the CPA, CFA, CNA, Real estate license, underwriter licensing, Fundamentals of Engineering (FE), and CLU. And those are just the big-name designations and licensing that I could think of without doing any research! Exam Prep Niche Site Ideas Below are a couple of niche site ideas for the exam prep niche. Remember, these are niche site ideas that I have personally researched. I strongly considered creating a website in the below niches, but unfortunately, I don’t have enough time to start a new niche website every day so I’m sharing my niche site ideas with you. Exam prep niche site ideas: • CAPM • Information Technology • CIA Certification
  3. 3. NICHE SITE IDEAS - CAPM CERTIFICATION This is one I strongly considered pursuing and creating a niche site for. In fact, I’m still considering it if I have time within the next year. Here’s why: • 6,600 people per month are searching for “CAPM Certification”. Hundreds more are searching for “CAPM Exam” and “CAPM Training”. People are searching for this exam and there is little competition in the space. • Reading the study material reviews on Amazon, people are always complaining about the PMBOK Guide (the main study material for this exam). On Amazon, it is rated with 3.3 stars. 27% of the reviews are one-star reviews. People HATE this study material. This is viable niche. Someone can easily come in here, begin offering a better study material, and carve out a nice niche website.
  4. 4. NICHE SITE IDEAS - INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY There is a lot of opportunity in the information technology space. There are a lot of designations and certifications popping up. It’s an incredibly fast-growing and competitive industry. Here are a couple of the most popular information technology certifications: • ITIL certification – 18,100 people per month are searching for this certification. • CCNA certification – 12,100 people per month are searching for this certification. • CISSP certification – 6,600 people per month are searching for this certification. • CSM certification – 6,600 people per month are searching for this certification. • CISA certification – 4,400 people per month are searching for this certification. • MCSE certification – 2,900 people per month are searching for this certification. I want to make you aware of these certifications and the opportunities in this niche. If you work in IT, there is a TON of opportunity for you here.
  5. 5. NICHE SITE IDEAS - CIA CERTIFICATION The CIA Certification is the Certified Internal Auditor certification. NO ONE is taking advantage of this niche. Here’s why this is a viable niche: • 1,900 people per month are searching for the term “CIA Certification”. • 1,000 are searching for the term “CIA Exams”. • No one is targeting these keywords. Most of the blogs ranking on the first page don’t even put this keyword in the title of their blogs. I could go in right now, write a blog on The Entrepreneur Ride Along website, and rank for the keyword “CIA Certification” within a week. That’s how little competition there is. • CIA review course costs between $400 to $900. You could be generating $900 per sale from one online course. 10 sales per month for 12 months is $108,000 in annual revenue. Please, someone, take advantage of this niche. It is just sitting there waiting for someone to come in, create a different product, and make thousands in passive income per month.
  6. 6. NICHE SITE IDEAS - INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY There is a lot of opportunity in the information technology space. There are a lot of designations and certifications popping up. It’s an incredibly fast-growing and competitive industry. Here are a couple of the most popular information technology certifications: • ITIL certification – 18,100 people per month are searching for this certification. • CCNA certification – 12,100 people per month are searching for this certification. • CISSP certification – 6,600 people per month are searching for this certification. • CSM certification – 6,600 people per month are searching for this certification. • CISA certification – 4,400 people per month are searching for this certification. • MCSE certification – 2,900 people per month are searching for this certification. I want to make you aware of these certifications and the opportunities in this niche. If you work in IT, there is a TON of opportunity for you here.
  7. 7. OTHER NICHE SITE IDEAS - EXAM PREP NICHE The three certifications in this presentation are just a few that I’ve researched. There are a TON more out there.
