Imagine if you could become an authority in a market that’s about to explode? Imagine if you could be early to the party, forming a wonderful website in a market where there are few competitors? Imagine that by the time your competitors show up to the party, you’re already the one leading it?

This could definitely be the case with 3D printing. Chances are you already have heard of it, although you likely don’t own a 3D printer yet. However, this is probably going to change sometime in the near future.

The fact of the matter is that the 3D printing niche is going to explode incredibly soon, and you have the opportunity now to get into it before that happens.

 What Is 3D Printing?

3D printing is exactly what it sounds like – with a 3D printer, you are able to print off physical, 3D objects using a variety of materials. This can range from something as simple as a golf ball to as complex as an actual, firing gun. Heck, scientists have even figured out how to 3D print off meat. Meat! Yeah, actual food that you can eat. Crazy, right?

The truth is that every day, more and more objects are being created that can be printed into existence with one machine. As the possibilities grow, so does the number of interested consumers. This is where you can step in, and give them the information and products they need.

Search Engine Popularity Of 3D Printing

The search volume of 3D printing related terms are already huge, and these numbers are bound to grow drastically as time goes on. Let’s take a look at some of the keywords related to 3D printing:

Not bad, right? Especially when you consider this is only a fraction of the potential keywords available.

Making Money In The 3D Printing Niche

Here’s the real exciting news – 3D printers are expensive, and there are no real alternatives to them. You know what that means? Massive affiliate marketing potential! Not only can you make massive amounts of money selling 3D printers to new people, you can also make a ton of money selling additional materials required for the printer to function, as well as different designs or models for various objects that can be printed off.

Let’s take a look at some of the products you could promote in the 3D printing niche:
FlashForge 3d Printer New Model: Creator X 

Price: $1,299. A solid 3D printer that has been selling quite well on Amazon. No matter, what, you’re guaranteed a good commission because these printers are so expensive.

MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer

Price: $1,999. $1,999! Could you imagine getting a commission on that? That’s up to $180 on Amazon!

MakerBot 1.75mm PLA Filament

Price: $48. It really adds up when you consider that people NEED this stuff to continue using their printer.

Adsense will typically pay around $1.30 a click for most keywords in this niche. Again, when demand for 3D printers rise, so will the competition for advertisers to meet the consumer’s demands. This means an increased CPC and more profit for you.


There is a ton of money to be made in the 3D printing niche if you get in on it now. I firmly believe that a 3D printer will be a common household appliance within the next few years. By building an authority site in the 3D printing niche now, you’ll be the one ranking high when all that traffic comes.
