If you’re thinking of launching a blog on a particular area, something which may well be fairly restrictive, then this is probably going to be a niche blog. For instance, you may be planning to launch a blog purely about books because you’re a keen reader. However, you’re not sure what topic is the most appropriate one for you, you may have to think about this in a bit more detail. You’ve decided you’re going to launch a niche blog, but what will it be about?
In this article, I’m going to show you three things you should consider in order to launch a profitable niche blog.
The first thing to do is simply launch the blog on an area that you’re passionate about. After all, if you are passionate about it, you’re going to write a better blog post and the people will be drawn into your blog purely because your passion comes through in your writing. So, consider your different hobbies and are any of these worth making an appropriate blog? It needs to be something you do in your day-to-day life which would be a good source of interesting information and would allow you to launch a riveting niche blog for your readers. Give this some thought and you’ll some come up with a number of areas you can consider of which you can choose the one which will best reflect a valid niche.
The second thing you should do is look at what the latest trends are. Now, these may not be areas that directly interest you as much, but the good news is they have longer term money making potential. They may even have a very short term money making potential. If you use a sight, such as Google Trends to find out what people are searching for and you identify an area where there is not a huge amount of competition, you could very quickly launch a niche blog based around that trend. The lack of competition would mean you could get visitors almost right away. And if you capitalize on this with a small amount of advertising or selling an appropriate product to the readership, then as well as building a longer term business, you’ll be able to hit the ground running with a flying start with your new niche blog.
Finally, you may wish to consider some product research. This means go onto different sales site and see what’s selling well at a particular time. You can also do this offline. Just think about going into a large chain store and seeing what they’re advertising at the entrance. This tends to be something which they think will be highly popular. So, product research may give you a good idea for a niche which you can start writing about.
Once you put these ideas together, you should have no problem choosing an appropriate topic for a niche blog. If you simply want to write about an area you are passionate about, this will enable you to draw readership, and you may well find an area you’re passionate about which has good money making potential. Alternatively, try and find out what’s hot right now by doing trends research and capitalize on immediate traffic. If that isn’t appropriate for you, then go ahead and identify popular products, you can always base a blog around these and this has some good income earning potential through affiliate promotion of those products. Any of these will give you an appropriate topic for a niche blog. Now you just have to go ahead and do the hard work of writing for it.
