In this article, we’re going to talk about the simple five step approach that you can use to find a niche to blog about or put up a blog post about. This can be very useful if you are interested in niche marketing, and/or are looking for topics to start a blog about or a blog post about.
Just a quick word first on Niche Blogging. Niche Blogging is what it sounds like: finding a niche and blogging about it. This is a popular way to blog for the purpose of making money online whether you are selling a product in a niche such as a dog training manual or if you are selling yourself in a niche such as a real estate flipping expert. Some hobbyists already have a ready-to-go-niche in their hobby. Some others are just looking online for ideas to start a niche business. Here are five steps to find a niche and also to determine if a niche you have picked will be a good one to blog about.
With that small explanation done, here we go with five steps to finding a great niche to start a blog about.
First: It is a good idea if there is already money being spent in that niche. Money being spent usually means a niche which is desirable and will get traffic whether or not you plan to monetize your blog. While some people want to try and create something brand new, Niche Blogging is more about what has already shown to work. If there is money in the niche, your Niche Blog is a way of being able to stick your hand in that flow of money.
Second: you have to ask yourself whether or not you have a product or service that you can sell to the niche market. Niche marketing is all about selling products and services. Therefore, do not make the mistake of finding a niche for which there are no products or services that you can turn around and sell to people who are interested. If you don’t have your own product, there are many other products out there you can still sell whether it is through resell rights or through affiliate marketing.
Third: Now that you have a crowd of buyers and a product to sell, you need to focus and take action in your niche. Many internet marketers fail because of distraction from the overwhelming amount of information on the internet regarding internet marketing. Or they fail because of impatience. Niche marketing and any online marketing takes time to build so being able to focus and do daily tasks in your niche marketing business is a must.
Fourth: You need to have some degree of personal interest in whatever topic you select. Niche marketing is hard enough when you are interested in it, but if you have zero interest in the topic, it will be very difficult for you to be successful. When you really stop and think about it, that makes sense.
Fifth: think about supply and demand and if there is a huge supply of niche marketing sites and not much demand, maybe it’s better to pick another niche. Give yourself a reasonable opportunity to be a success online. And this will be made only more difficult if you pick a niche that is saturated with more supply than demand.
And those are my five things to think about when picking a niche to blog in and market in. Overall, niche marketing can be a bit tricky and it just takes time and experience and trial and error to figure out what works best for you. Just remember to look for all five factors: find a niche with buyers and action, find a good product or service to provide, be ready to do the daily tasks, make sure it is something you’re interested in, and give yourself a reasonable chance to succeed.
Because it is so cheap to start a blog and get an online business, it will ultimately be up to you to succeed and fail often to get a feel for how appealing a niche will be TO YOU. By following this advice, you will be able to find a niche, and successfully employ a variety of niche marketing techniques that can make you a lot of money. Go out, do some research, start a blog, and we’ll see you next time.
