Building a product-based website? The Product Laboratory will help find you brainstorm product ideas.
I've added a new sample project - one based on the keyword teach english. Find the sample project here.
English is still the most popular language to learn on the planet and ever more people want to learn. So why not get a piece of the action and enter this popular niche?
As it so happens I know quite a bit about this niche. As well as a software developer I am also a qualified EFL teacher. I got my CELTA back in 2015.
This is a great niche for online operations, as there are still very few actual native speaking English teachers in many parts of the world. So language learners are increasingly going online in search of tuition. It's also a great way to make money online without needing to build niche sites and what not.
Remember other languages are popular as well. I've been studying Mandarin Chinese for years, and I passed my HSK 2 exam back in 2016.
I've now been testing this niche for a while.
Hmm, it seems fairly tough.
I tried a blogspot blog but it got sandboxed. Does Google still sandbox sites? Apparently it does. I'm not sure if it's because of the blogger domain, or the niche, or the fact I put in too many backlinks straight away.
Anway, I've now moved the content to my own personal domain which I registerered in 1999. My TEFL content is on brettb.com.
Let's see if this niche is a good one!

Been around since 2009 means you've had so much experience in this space. I'm really considering expanding into promoting products in other niches using paid ads but my limitation is that I don't know how to speak a second language.
I agree with you that low gravity shouldn't be a criterion for selecting products to promote as there are some uncompetitive products with very low gravity. I'll like to add some characteristics of products you shouldn't promote:
1. Clickbank products that have (external) ads on their sales page
2. Products with buy buttons that do not go to the Clickbank order page
3. Products that exaggerate their promises, especially financial promises. Promises like these will lead to high refund rates (most MMO products have refund rates over 20% in fact).
4. Unresponsive vendors. Before starting to promote a product, ALWAYS contact the vendor (ask for a review copy, or ask a question about the product, or just introduce yourself). If you get no reply within 48hours do NOT promote the product.
Recently, I came across a course created by Clickbank's current #1 affiliate that claims to teach people how to drive traffic to Clickbank offers using Facebook Ads. I've seen some good reviews and positive testimonies online about the course. Here's one https://abayomioloyede.com/commission-hero-review/
What do you think about the course?
