I Posed This Question On Facebook The Other Day.

I posed this question on Facebook the other day, asking this...

"If you could build a business around ANY passion, interest, or hobby....What would that be? "

The response was actually quite amazing. People shared their interests about just about everything, from gold, to drawing, to bonsai trees, to dogs, to sleeping, to simply helping others.

This to me says, everyone has a dream path they want to take, but very few have the "know how" to make that happen. The reality is that affiliate marketing can serve as a gateway into any on of these industries and there is a TON of opportunity with each of these.

Let's have a look at the ones I outlined above and how "affiliate marketing" can be a viable (and significant) opportunity in each of them.

1. Gold

  • Commission Range: 1% to 3% for physical gold; $20 to $200 for investment platforms.
  • Audience Size: Estimated in the millions globally, considering investors and enthusiasts.
  • Products/Services to Promote: Gold coins, bars, IRAs, investment platforms.
  • Brands: BullionVault, GoldBroker, Augusta Precious Metals.

2. Drawing

  • Commission Range: 5% to 20%.
  • Audience Size: Tens of millions worldwide, including hobbyists, students, and professionals.
  • Products/Services to Promote: Online courses, digital tablets, art supplies, software.
  • Brands: Blick Art Materials, Adobe, Wacom, Skillshare.

3. Bonsai Trees

  • Commission Range: 10% to 20%.
  • Audience Size: Hundreds of thousands to a few million enthusiasts and hobbyists globally.
  • Products/Services to Promote: Bonsai trees, care guides, tools, soil, pots.
  • Brands: Bonsai Boy, Eastern Leaf, Brussels Bonsai.

4. Dogs

  • Commission Range: 5% to 15%.
  • Audience Size: Over 100 million dog owners in the U.S. alone, with a global audience in the hundreds of millions.
  • Products/Services to Promote: Food, toys, beds, insurance, training.
  • Brands: Chewy, Petco, Petsmart, BarkBox, Embrace Pet Insurance.

5. Sleeping

  • Commission Range: 5% to 20%.
  • Audience Size: Potentially billions globally, considering those interested in improving sleep quality.
  • Products/Services to Promote: Mattresses, pillows, trackers, supplements, courses.
  • Brands: Purple, Casper, Sleep Number, Fitbit, Calm.

This is just brushing the surface as well. There are over 550 MILLION products and services, across any passion, interest or hobby...that you can promote as an affiliate marketer.

If you take ONE hypothetical affiliate commission (on the average side of things) of $50, it only takes a few sales per day to get to the $100,000 per year mark. If you can refer 6 people per day, to brands that you are passionate about (and that they already want to buy) you are looking at $108,000 per year.

6 x $50 x 365 = $109,500 per year

There has never been a better time to get your butt online, and start thriving within a niche that you are passionate about. Millions of potential customers (and subsequent affiliate commissions) await.

What is your PURE passion that you would love to build a full-time business around? Are you currently building a business out within that niche? I would love to hear about it. ;)
