If you don’t know what to blog about to make money, don’t get discouraged.
With a little thought and some brainstorming, you’ll be able to find your own personal niche that will enable you to create your perfect blog.
So what exactly is a niche?
An niche is just another name for a targeted group of people. A market or audience.
That’s all it is. It’s nothing complicated.
With the millions of websites already online, you may think the competition is much too great.
That just isn’t so.
You can still make money online in a niche somebody already has, you just have to know how to go about it.
In order to build a great niche business, you must come up with your own unique, original content website.
Yes, there are plenty of similar niche content websites online however, not one of them is exactly the same as yours.
It’s your uniqueness that will set you apart from the rest.
If you create your own unique niche website around your subject and add your own personal touch, you can succeed and make money.
Before You Decide What to Blog About
1) Make Sure Your Niche is Not too Large
In other words, don’t chose a market so large the competition is overwhelming.
The more focused your subject, the easier it will be for you to rank better with the search engines.
Let me give you an example.
Let’s say you like the subject ‘gardening.’
If you picked ‘gardening’ as your niche topic, it’s going to be extra hard to generate traffic to your website.
Because ‘gardening’ is such a competitive market.
In other words, that market is enormous. Especially for a beginner.
You would be competing with hundreds of other gardening websites. Websites that have been around for years and years before you.
So what can you do about this?
Just dig a little deeper and see if you can find a smaller niche topic. Something a little less competitive.
Like ‘Organic Gardening’ or ‘Organic Gardening for Beginners.’
You see, the more focused your niche idea, the less competition there will be for you to rank higher in the search engines.
Higher search engine rankings result in easier website traffic.
Now don’t get me wrong, if you absolutely love a large niche subject like ‘gardening’ and really want to make it your niche website topic then go for it.
Just be aware of the competition you’ll be up against.
I’m not saying it can’t be done.
You’ll just have to work harder to get decent search engine rankings.
Being passionate about your subject is most important when building your online business.
2) Make Sure You Can Sell Products In Your Niche
This is something to think about as well.
If there aren’t any products to sell in your niche, you might want to choose a different niche.
So be sure there are at least a few good products to sell to your audience around your niche.
What to Blog About to Make Money
Find Your Passion, Find Your Niche
Many online marketers believe that you should only build websites around niche topics that are already known to be profitable.
There is some truth in.
If you know a particular niche is already profitable and you really love that niche, then that’s the way to go.
In my opinion and most importantly, your niche topic should be something you are truly passionate about.
If you don’t like your niche topic then don’t let that be your niche. It doesn’t make any sense to build a business around something you don’t enjoy or know anything about.
With that said, you really need to think about what your are truly passionate about?
If you’re really good at something then you have the makings for a successful online business.
Oh come on, you know you are good at something!
Your website can be about something you’re good at.
Everyone enjoys something or is good at something in their life!!
You might not be aware of it yet, but you are gifted in ‘something’ and there are people from around the world that are interested in reading about ‘your something.’
Your website business can be built around anything you enjoy.
If you like “gardening” then it can be about “gardening.”
If you like “golfing,” then it can be about “golfing.”
Whatever you want it to be about, it can be. It doesn’t matter, it’s all about what you like.
It’s all about ‘YOU’ and what you want it to be.
What Are You Good At?
- Do you have any hobbies? Hobbies can be great niche websites.
- What do you do in your spare time? Do you like sports, electronics, computers or cars? What about shopping or fixing things?
- What are you educated in? Did you have any special education in a particular field? Can you show people how to do something?
- Do you like to review products or give advice to people on how they can save money?
