Golf is a club-and-ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible.

 Golf, unlike most ball games, cannot and does not utilize a standardized playing area, and coping with the varied terrains encountered on different courses is a key part of the game. The game at the usual level is played on a course with an arranged progression of 18 holes, though recreational courses can be smaller, often having nine holes. Each hole on the course must contain a tee box to start from, and a putting green containing the actual hole or cup 4 1⁄4 inches (11 cm) in diameter. There are other standard forms of terrain in between, such as the fairway, rough (long grass), bunkers (or "sand traps"), and various hazards (water, rocks) but each hole on a course is unique in its specific layout and arrangement.

 Golf is played for the lowest number of strokes by an individual, known as stroke play, or the lowest score on the most individual holes in a complete round by an individual or team, known as match play. Stroke play is the most commonly seen format at all levels, but most especially at the elite level.

The modern game of golf originated in 15th century Scotland. The 18-hole round was created at the Old Course at St Andrews in 1764. Golf's first major, and the world's oldest tournament in existence, is The Open Championship, also known as the British Open, which was first played in 1860 in Ayrshire, Scotland. This is one of the four major championships in men's professional golf, the other three being played in the United States: The Masters, the U.S. Open, and the PGA Championship.

    This is definitely one way to prove demand in a niche to show that it is can be profitable.

    Take a look at the sites below and others in the niche that are leaders today and emulate what they do and have on their sites. Some authority site owners build to flip and others build to create additional income revenue streams for themselves every month.

    What's your goal?

    1. 10BestGear.com - Sold for $10,000, Est. Profit p/mo: $251
    2. GolfDrivingTipsStraight.com - Sold for $1,350, Est. Profit p/mo: $328
    3. PowerteeSwing.com - Sold for $1,298, Est. Profit p/mo: $8,786

     

    The first thing is to run and maintain a relevant authority site, eCommerce store, email list, podcast, YouTube channel, etc. in the Golf niche.

    The Golf niche has all the makings of a successful online business regardless of how you decide to go forth and conquer this niche.

    There is a passionate audience that spends cash and time on products and services. There are other folks claiming their piece of the proverbial pie - competition is a good thing as it proves demand.

    The Golf niche has loads of social media accounts and personalities, many blogs, and active forums, podcasts with a huge amount of downloads as well as many paid advertising options on Google and Facebook to name but a few.

    This gives you many opportunities to reach the target audience easier.

    You can build brand awareness by driving traffic by answering questions using forum marketing and networking, commenting on influencers' social media content once you have optimized your social media accounts bio and links to get some of that influencer's traffic to your site.

    You can also participate in blog commenting with a link in your signature, guest posting to build up your own profile as part of this audience's A-List of online celebrities. You can spend time adding value in Facebook groups where your audience hangs out and become a household name.

    By being part of these communities you can collect content ideas from seeing what other site owners are creating and also from the questions that the community is asking.

    Use a method like "The Skyscraper" method, which simply means "building a Skyscraper a.k.a a blog" that is longer, bigger, better optimized, has more valuable information, linking to authoritative websites, is rich with media such as YouTube videos, images that are optimized, etc. than the guys and gals that rank on page 1 of Google for e.g. 

    This passionate audience can help you start to see some profits in a relatively short space of time. You must be consistent in putting out valuable content and making good strong offers that resonate with your audience. 

    The research data and insights in this report will help you get going quickly on that road! Take action today.

    Be social, that is why it's called social media. Share cool content, do reviews, link to others content from your website and you will grow. The law of reciprocity will kick in and some folks will return the favor and build links to you too.

    Ensure along the way, across all platforms, articles, etc. that you are providing value and you always have a call to action. That call to action doesn't have to be 'buy now', it could be "share this with XYZ", tag a friend, comment with your favorite emoji, download this free ebook, checklist, guide, and so on and so forth.

    And don't forget to build your email list so you can continue to build your relationship with your audience, drive traffic back to your newest content, and promote to your audience.

    1. A place for your blog/site to live. Look for professional, reliable hosting.
    2. You will need a domain that you can make your own with your brand. I like GoDaddy.
    3. Good images and videos for your site and content. Great free places like Unsplash, Pexels, and Pixabay to get you started.
    4. You will need an autoresponder software service to deliver communications of new blog posts, sales, freebies, etc. that your audience can consume from you. There are some good ones out there like MailerLite, MailChimp, Aweber, and ActiveCampaign.
    5. Email capture tools for your blog/site. There are stand-alone software services like OptinMonster, SumoMe, etc. but many of the autoresponder services mentioned above offer basic pop-ups, etc. that you can embed on your blog/site for free as part of your monthly service.
