Remember: You want to enter markets that are thriving. By setting up a blog that focuses on one of the industries we discuss below, you are giving yourself a much bigger chance for success as you’re much more likely to generate an audience.
So first things first, let’s take a lot what factors you should consider when you’re looking at blog niche ideas and trying to pick the right one for you.
Haven’t got your Blog yet?
Now obviously there plenty of blog niches that make money. We’ve listed five blog niche ideas below but of course there are many, many more you can think about.
So if your chosen niche doesn’t happen to be on our list, no worries. The 5-question checklist below will help you decide whether or not your preferred niche is a good choice for your blog.
1. Is it a big market?
Think about the industry your blog caters to (broadly). Is there a lot of money being made in the industry – not just from blogs but in general? If yes, then there’s probably potential for a money-making blog.
2. Is there potential for traffic?
Do people in this industry regularly search online for advice, news, tips and other content? If so, then there is likely to be a potential to generate traffic to your blog.
3. Does the audience have purchasing power?
Think about the potential audience for your blog. Do they have money to spend to buy products and services you recommend via your blog? For example, a blog that targets teenagers only (and not their parents) can be a difficult choice if you want to generate money from it.
4. Are there opportunities for affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest and most common ways to make money from a blog, especially for newbies. You promote someone else’s product and/or services and receive a small commission when one of your readers makes a purchase. Think about brands and businesses in your niche. Research to see if they offer affiliate partnerships.
5. Are you interested in this niche?
Most importantly, are you interested in the niche? There’s no point starting a blog about something you have zero knowledge or interest in. You will quickly get bored or tired of it. Pick an area you can create unlimited content about, without losing steam.
All of the above will make more sense once you see our summaries of the most profitable blog niches, below.
Remember: At all times, think of your blog niche ideas in terms of whether or not you can generate an income from it.
