The research when choosing a niche for affiliate promotion should be done properly, or you will never succeed. First you need to check the niche blogs and forums, where people in your niche are asking questions and looking for information. Research the forums and try to establish yourself as an expert by answering questions and providing free info.
After you have researched the niche, you can select a sub-niche. It is important that you are not going for broad niches, as it will be hard to diversify yourself and your offers.
