Niche of the Week: Parenting Advice Affiliate Programs

Being the mother of two young girls, I know from firsthand experience that children can drive their parents crazy. It starts from infancy and continues on through your child's adulthood. Children will do things that can irk, annoy and exasperate you.

They can also make you laugh with their antics and see the world in fresh, new way.

Being a parent brings on the pressure of making sure you're raising your child well, and issues that come with child-rearing can oftentimes drive parents up the wall. Some parents find a good piece of advice, whether from other parents or professionals, can really make a big difference.

An infographic by the Frugal Dad talks about "America's Billion Dollar Baby Scam." It points out how willing parents are to spend on their children, and how the baby advice industry has grown since the 1970s. Judging by the number of parenting advice sites and books on the Internet, there is a high demand and plenty of competition in the parenting niche.

"Parent" Keywords

It's ap-parent what some of your target keywords should be. But do they all need to include "parent"?

"Parenting advice" is a good keyword to target, but there are a lot of other keywords you can target and use in this niche. Most of the keywords you'll find are "crisis" keywords; phrases that emerge from a certain crisis or challenge parents may face.

Potty Training - Traffic Travis Results

A good example is "how to potty train boys," "when to start potty training," and "ready for potty training." These keywords are crisis keywords because they are about a specific problem parents want resolved. These keywords have good monthly search values and are between medium and high competition.

Some keyword variations have easier competition or better monthly values than your original target keyword, so make sure to check sites such as Ubersuggest.org for variations on your target keywords.

Get Parents to Your Site

Some link building and inbound marketing methods to drive your target market (parents) to your website.

It’s not enough that you get your website up. You need to drive traffic to it and let search engines and the rest of the online community know you've got your fabulous site on parenting advice up and running. Here are some of the methods you can use to let readers, particularly parents, know that your site has great info for them:

Content Strategy

Before promoting your site on social media sites and forums, make sure that you've got the right content to tempt them to visit and stay on your site. This is where good content strategy comes in.

If you're not a parent but really want to be in this niche, you need to read up on everything parenting before writing. Research the problems parents face these days and write about those.

Once you have a good content strategy, planning, researching and publishing these articles should be a lot easier.

Link Indexing

This is probably one of the least used off-page SEO methods—probably because once we've built links, we just leave them there and move on to the next inbound marketing method.

After building your links, it's a good practice to make sure that search engines are aware of these new links to your site. You can ping them, or submit them as an RSS feed, or use social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.

Social Media Marketing

Of course, it's important that you do social media marketing. This is where most people converge these days, including parents—and their children, too!

Once you have your site up, make sure to set up a Facebook or Twitter page for it. You can then share any new content from your site on these social media sites and gather followers. You can also share parenting information from other sites in the niche on your website's social media channels.

The best people to start a parenting advice site are parents, but if you're well and truly interested in this niche, then there's nothing wrong with starting one of your own. There is plenty of literature on parenting you can read through, and I'm going to say the odds are good you know a parent who can share their experience with you—your own parents, for example.

This is a competitive niche, though, so it's important that you've got a clear idea of what your site will be and look like. Having link-building and inbound marketing strategies before starting the site will be a great help too. You need to make sure you do your research well and know your target market.

Some affiliate programs offer more than others, but the commissions you can get from the products in this niche are good enough. With a good site and strong link-building and inbound marketing efforts, you can earn well in the parenting advice niche.
