    Has anyone here created an affiliate or ecommerce site in a niche where they had no passion in?

    Was it a success? Success being minimum 3000 USD a month?

    Thx!

    I don't give a shit about 99% of the best $$ niches I've worked with.

    My favorite niches (hobbies) aren't profitable.

    @bartosimpsonio - Thx for your reply - So what motivates you to write content / do link building on a regular basis to keep these sites growing? Believe it or not I actually enjoy link building but content / researching is a mofo. What motivates you to push yourself in these situations? Thx!

    Keep target fixed like 1000$ per month.This will motivate to work and outsource most of the things.

    Having a site in a niche you are passionate about is the best way to completely start hating your hobby. Especially if you will be writing the content yourself. Go after whatever is profitable and has decent competition. Forget about "passion" niches.

    I build microniche site based on hobby that i passionate about, guess what? Fail.

    Then i start build niche site focused on affiliate and the $$ is there.

    Bad for me cause i start hating my own hobby and leave it now.

    I have absolutely no passion for the niches that make me money. In fact, some of the niches I'm in that are successful and making a decent return are kind of embarrassing...but who cares? If it pays the bills and let's me buy toys for my hobbies, then I'm good.
