Traveling: 5 Reasons To Promote This Lucrative Niche

22 Aug

#1 – People Have Always and Will Always Want to – or Have to – Travel…

We live in a world where traveling is no longer simply a luxury that few can afford or partake in. In our global economy and near global society, traveling abroad is nearly as common as traveling from one town to the next. At any given moment about 5000 commercial airplanes are above the USA alone, flying to or from a location. People travel for business, pleasure, opportunity, and unfortunately sometimes even a tragedy. Traveling is a huge evergreen niche that will not be going anywhere. It’s a niche that has lots of facets, and it’s one that you can count on over and over again.

#2 – Tons of Things to Promote

One of the greatest things about promoting something with such a wide scope as traveling is the fact that there’s just so much to promote. You’ll certainly never run out of items to sell in the travel niche. Here’s just a small list of things to consider…

  • Airline Tickets
  • Cruises
  • Hotels
  • Bus Tickets
  • Bus Tours
  • Tourist Attraction
  • Travel Shopping (clothes, shoes, bathing suits, sunglasses, etc.)
  • Train Tickets
  • Books on travel
  • Information Products
  • Leads for Travel Agents
  • Restaurants
  • The List Goes On and On…

These are things that come off the top of my head, and I’m sure I’m missing some glaringly obvious ones, but you get the general idea, and can surely come up with at least a couple of your own.

#3 – Searches for Traveling Are Constantly and Consistently Enormous…

Of course these days we hardly have to guess at what niches are in demand. Google simply tells us. Here are some of the astounding monthly search numbers from Google for the traveling industry.

  • Travel = 101,000,000 monthly searches…
  • Travel Agent = 1,830,000 monthly searches…
  • Vacation = 20,400,000 monthly searches…
  • Vacation Packages = 1,500,000 monthly searches…
  • Airlines = 83,100,000 monthly searches…
  • Airline Tickets = 5,000,000 monthly searches…
  • Cruise = 30,400,000 monthly searches…
  • Rental Cars = 3,350,000 monthly searches…

You certainly get the point. These are astounding numbers and best of all they’re constant and consistent. There are plenty of places for you to tap into, and be of great service for people who simply need to get from one place to the next. But people who travel, often do so quite often. In this case it’s important that you realize that this niche is…

#4 – Great for List Building

There are really two reasons why this is a great niche for list building.

First of all, people who love to travel… LOVE to travel. That means that they’re likely going to be traveling again soon. Or they will at least want to travel more. This means that if you keep in contact with them, and keep sending them travel deals, or content about traveling, they’ll eventually do much of their planning through your links… therefore making them sort of a lifetime customers.

Secondly once they’re on your travel list/newsletter, you can branch them on to other lists which are sort of sideways niches. Maybe they want to get healthy before traveling and so will be interested in a fitness product or a fitness list. Maybe they’re restaurant buffs (people who like to travel like to eat) so you can get them on a list talking about the best restaurants, most unique restaurants, etc.

The possibilities are virtually endless and limited only by your imagination. This can be a stepping stone to building other niche lists.

#5 – Great for AdSense or Contextual Ads…

Because of the search volume, this is a great way to earn from AdSense or other contextual ads. The Cost Per Click (CPC) isn’t enormous (most terms averaging around $2.50), but there are still a lot of players in the game, and with the traffic volume that you could receive from it could be huge money for you in contextual advertising. Every click ads up, and you’ll have a lot of topics to create content, starting with the content I’ve already provided for you with my PLR!
