To start with answer these questions:

So once you have got all the data, it’s time to identify the best ecommerce niches you are going to focus on. It’s crunch time, well in so much that it is a great place to get started.
Please remember, this is only the beginning of your ecommerce niche selection, to test it.
It might work and it might not, but the most important thing is that you understand how to choose a niche and innovative niche ideas for your e-commerce business.
The thing is:
Most eCommerce Entrepreneurs go through many different niches before they hit the real money making one.
What is your chosen ecommerce niche?
Once you have that niche down, let’s go to Google Alerts to set up Keyword Alerts to set up an alert to ensure you know what is going on in your industry.
Then enter your chosen Niche where you see the “my brand” in the image.
You can set how often you receive these alerts, but I believe the best is to get them every day and scan them to keep up to date with your industry.
Niche Domain Name Research
Next what you will want to do is choose a really cool domain name, something that stands out, and something that is related to your niche. My favorite place to get domain name suggestions is LeanDomainSearch the coolest domain finder I know.
Let’s imagine your niche was “pets”.
Simply enter “pets” or your own keyword into the domain name generator box, click search, and await for the magic to happen.
The results for “pets” brought back over 2000 domain name suggestions that you could use. Now filter through and find the one that best suits YOU.
Once you have chosen your domain name for your e-commerce store it is time to go to Godaddy.com. I like to choose these as they connect really easily to Shopify and make the whole process very easy.
Go to Godaddy.com to register your domain name:
If this is your first time registering a domain, you can look for a coupon code to get the best deal on the domain:
Sometimes you can get the domain for as little as $0.99.
