Starting your own blog can give you the privilege of an online career with a huge potential to become a full-time job with a full-time income if done the right way passionately.
Blogging requires a lot of hard work, time and effort. Finding the best niche that you are passionate about will make your career much easier, flexible and more enjoyable.
There are some niches in 2020 that are easy to write about, however, they are very competitive with thousands if not millions of articles getting published daily, which can lower your chances of succeeding as a start-up.
One of the many big mistakes that beginner bloggers make is choosing the wrong niche for their blog which soon will be their long-term career. Deciding to write about the wrong niche for your blog can result in closure and quitting as soon as things do not go as planned.
Here is what’s important. The difference between discovering a niche and discovering a profitable niche. This is something that you want to find, the word that you should use is create.
A lot of people use the word find. In this article I’m going to help you create a niche by finding a profitable one. STAY TUNED!
What can choosing the wrong niche do to your blog?
When you are thinking about the niche, you want to think about the audience you want to write for. If you don’t know the topic very well and your posts are not very informative to that niche then you are not going to gain much attraction, authority or traffic that come from the things you write.
You must stand out from this crowd of bloggers that are all writing about this one topic. There are tons of bloggers that help other bloggers get started, I’m an example. You must find a way to be unique.
You can do videos, pintables, email marketing, everything that you focus on needs to be different from what someone else does. slowly you will make your niche one of the best blog niches in 2020.
So, think about how well do you know the subject? Do you know enough to be able to write quality articles? Is there enough interest for you to continue writing this over the next 2 to 3 years if you wanted to?
There are some topics where you can only write so much and then you start to regurgitate information.
Easy Four steps you must follow to pick the right blogging niche
#1 list all your skills and passions
Bring a blank paper and narrow down all your skills and passions, pour everything onto the paper.
Write anything that comes up in your mind which you think you would enjoy writing about, keep writing as you are going to eliminate some of the ideas as you progress.
#2 List what you think your category should be
People can sense lack of enthusiasm from a mile away so, you definitely don’t want to chose a niche simply based on the idea like ‘that’s where the money is’ because you will probably burn out very quickly.
By the time money starts coming (which it will but very slowly) you would’ve already quit simply because it takes a lot of hard work, time and dedication to start earning money from your blog.
#3 Narrow down all the different categories
At this point you’ve got these different things. It is good to be able to have many choices but just know that you are going to only write about one topic because you can only be an expert at one thing at a time. If you want to establish your authority you have to have a certain category (one or two at most).
What I would recommend is to write about all those different categories, get a good feel for what your readers like and what you like to write about. I thought writing about travelling tips and tricks was my ideal category, but it wasn’t until I established that category is when I found out that it really isn’t my thing.
For the best results, do this over a period of about thirty to sixty days and then slowly start weeding out one category after another until you are left with one or two categories that you really feel like you could build a profitable niche that will generate money aggressively.
#4 Step four start writing post ideas
Write a list of at least 50 blog posts that you think you could write about that category. 50 sound like a lot but, if you think about it there are 12 months a year and each month you may write multiple blog posts and if you’re doing that, 50 is easy to achieve.
If you are going to build a blog that generates money aggressively do not think short term, think long term. You want to be able to write consistent posts throughout the year providing value to people.
Top five main categories that tend to generate money aggressively (by earnings)
People love being food bloggers and many people like reading food articles because simply they like to eat. This is a popular industry.
Mommy hood/ parent hood
There are a lot of parents that need a guide. This industry is never ending with many topics to write about and discuss in depth.
The health category is very popular. This could be exercise tips, mental health and physical routine workouts.
What is good about this niche is that it has many affiliate products that are easy to make and promote as there are a lot of products out there that are health related.
Talk about all the different places someone should visit, eat and stay. ‘The world is the limit’ you could do a travel blog on just your local cities about when people come and visit your city. Your travel blog is whatever you want to make it and it is one of the more popular categories I see.
The self-improvement category is probably one of the most needed categories of all. As people are always searching to better themselves and achieve goals.
Self-improvement can be how to deal with failure, time management, thinking critically or how to be more productive.
A lot of people would love to read articles on how to better themselves. If this is the category that you want to go with, I highly recommend that you become very niched.
