How to find your niche on YouTube:
1. Beauty And Fashion
Beauty and fashion is such a niche that almost every girl will find luring and fun.
And indeed it is!
Though this one is a business in which there is extreme competition now as it is in trend and is hot but once you enter this business, you will know how much competition you have in it around you.
A good business strategy is that you always start it before knowing all about it, which also includes knowing your competition in the market.
Never start any new business without knowing the competition you’ll probably face during it.
Establish a trending channel or upload more videos of this sort, it will be more helpful for your business to grow than a mere makeup tutorial.
2. Survival Tips
A very interesting niche that has recently been emerging and standing out from other videos, is survival videos.
There are many people now who live remotely or like camping a lot in nature, they tend to upload their survival videos.
For instance, there is a girl on YouTube named Jonna Jinton, she lives in Sweden and she uploads her videos in extreme Swedish winters and in remote areas.
She has millions of subscribers, and her videos have millions of views.
It is a new trend, but just because it is quite different from other trendy but cliché videos, it is getting a lot of attention from YouTube viewers.
There are even a few channels that focus on survival in nature, in foreign countries, or in dangerous situations.
We think that no matter what you would like to choose to focus on, this kind of channel can become very successful.
3. Non-Mainstream Sports
Starting your niche with sports can be very competitive and if you pick mainstream sports, like football, cricket, tennis, or basketball, you will only have a few peak seasons.
Some selected ones, obviously, when the games are on.
So pick your favorite among the non-mainstream sports mentioned below::
- Rock climbing
There are so many and you can pick any of your choices, but we would honestly advise you to pick from non-mainstreaming sports.
There are and there always will be so many cooking shows and channels only because people like them.
But keep in mind that if you want to start this as your niche, you will have so many strong competitors.
And not to forget, they are in this field for years and they have tons of experience in it.
Cooking is one of those niches, which look very easy in the beginning, but by the passage of time, you realize that it demands specific food items every week, whenever you are going to upload to your videos.
You will have to spend money on such food items and then find new recipes every week and you cannot feel tired of it because obviously, people who cook are passionate about this art.
And cooking is so much about visual art, you have to present your food items in a way which will attract people, you will have to find new and perfect angles to click its pictures, edit them and make them attractive.
It demands a lot of work and energy.
If you love it, then don’t let anything stop you from pursuing your passion, just keep the heavy work and competition in your mind.
Being a representative of cars is not a joke, if you are going to pursue this niche as your promoting business, keep in mind that a mere fondness of cars will not be enough to make it happen.
You will have to know about each and every part of the car, their models, their engine details, their horsepowers, their differences, and a lot more.
But if you still want to follow up on this niche, and you are passionate about your fondness for cars, then this low competition niche is for you.
There are many aspects of any car that would interest your potential audience.
For instance, some of your users would want to find out all the new cars that have been launched.
While remaining might want to know How-To-Guides for the repair of their cars.
There are many child psychologists and non-certified but experienced people, who are good at this niche so they start their online pages/channels.
And people refer to them, they take their advice.
Either there are new parents or some experienced ones, everyone can come up with some new challenges in front of them.
If you think you are good at informing others about solid and practical details, this is for you.
This is also a low competition niche.
People who are progressing with these kinds of pages exist but they are less in number.
If you think you can make people understand and inform them, then you should go for it.
Further, if you have any certificate for any course you ever took that includes the concerned information, it will give you a stronger extra point.

Some of them show how they work in a café and what kind of fun café life they are experiencing.
They might show you their traveling survival tips and new language learning.
In these videos, you can share whatever experiences you want, both bad and good.
