The most important thing before start blogging is to choose a profitable niche for your blog that will help you to grow and get profit from blogging.

After Reading This Article, You will be known to:

  • How to generate a list of niches that you are actually interested in.
  • How to determine which of those niches are profitable.
  • How to Choose the best possible niche for your blog!

How To Get Started

It all starts with the plan. Planning is one of the most critical steps to success in any field of business. And this is especially true when working online.

Before we begin learning how to actually get your blog online, it’s essential to plan out what your blog will actually be about. Finding your blog’s niche is important.

What is a Niche?

A niche is a specific topic that your blog will be centered around.

A few examples of niches are:

  • Building flower gardens.
  • Football players.
  • Learn jazz guitar.
  • Anxiety and high school students
  • Latest News
  • Tips and Tricks for Technology
  • And so on and so forth.

Why Choose Niche?

Now, you may be wondering why choose a niche at all?

Many people feel like they shouldn’t have to choose a niche that they should be free to publish whatever they think. Like writing at that time while you’re probably allowed to do that. It isn’t advised if the glow of your website is to make money.

Let’s say you have a defined niche. If a new visitor finds your blog and enjoys what you’ve written, they’ll likely come back that interested in your blog’s topic. Which means that they’ll also be interested in any new articles you write.

Then Surely,

They’ll check back regularly for new articles.

Now let’s pretend your blog doesn’t have a defined niche. If you had a blog on piano playing and then started writing about video games, it’s likely the visitors who are interested in one topic or not interested in the other.

Therefore, they will not bookmark your site, and they will likely not return. It’s unfortunate, but it’s the truth. This is why so many personal non-business oriented blogs fail to make any money.

Stick to one niche, and you’ll find visitors coming back, again and again, looking forward to your newest blog posts.

How to Choose a Profitable Niche?

All right, so you know that you’ve got to choose a niche but which niche should you actually choose?

In short, two things go into a right niche.

The First Thing,

It’s something you care about and generally the more passionate about the niche that you are and more will. And you’ll be to work hard to make it into a success.

Blogging really can take a long time to get off the ground and build an audience.

So it’s important that,

You actually enjoy what you’re doing so you’ll stick around long enough to actually see results from your hard work.

Secondly,

It’s essential that the topic is profitable. You could be super passionate about camels or something.

If there isn’t anybody buying stuff related to what you’re talking about and you’re going to have a tough time making money.

The Profitability Factor

The profitability factor is actually more important if you’re blogging for business. Because the point of a business is to make money, right?

A lot of people just wanna say to follow your passion, but if your passion isn’t profitable, you’re really pursuing a hobby rather than a business.

Ideally, they will overlap, but profits should always come first if your goal is to make money.

So, I want you to make a list of all of your primary interests and prioritize them based on how much you enjoy talking about them. Then I want you to cross all of them, that aren’t profitable.

To determine the profitability of a niche, look to see what sorts of products are for sale in that niche. Ideally, they’ll be a mix of both physical and digital info products for sale. And there’ll be products that both high and low price.

For example,

One very profitable niche is learning jazz guitar. As you could imagine, there are plenty of products to promote. You can promote the guitars themselves or the other equipment that goes along with the guitar such as the amplifier, the guitar stands, etc. etc.

You could also promote info products like jazz guitar courses books or online lessons.

High Competition Niche. Choose or Not?

There you may find that the profitable niches, which have a lot of competition but that’s a good thing.

To be honest, 

Competition is the sign of a healthy market. It’s a far better use of your time to work in a market with limitless opportunities to grow. And get a lot of people to a site with no money making potential.

Wrapping Up

If you’re having a hard time choosing a niche, write your field of interests in the comments, and I will guide you to choose a profitable niche for your blog.

Just to recap anything that you care about, or could come to care about that and have a money-making potential is a good choice for a niche.

You’ll want to figure out your niche before you continue any further because it will likely have an influence on where your website’s name will be, and that’s what we’re going to sign on in a minute.
