One of the best ways to make money online is simply blogging. You have this idea in your head, and you have an idea to start a blog, but like many beginners, you do not know if it will work or not? If you are nodding your head, believe me, you are not alone. This is why we decided to make this article to show you some of the best niches for blogging and help you decide if it is the good one for you or not!
What is a Niche?
Before speaking about the best niches for blogging, let's define a niche.
If you go now and search for the word niche in a dictionary, you will find the following answer: a comfortable or suitable position in life or employment.
Many understand a niche that it is the idea that your blog will be talking about only. This is somehow correct, but it is not the definitive answer.
A niche is not only the topic, but it is also the approach you will take to talk about this topic. It is also the audience you want to target and how you are going to talk about the topic.
But most importantly, as the dictionary meaning states, it is the topic you find yourself comfortable to talk about. This helps you position yourself as an expert in the field or simply someone willing to share his/her experience about this specific topic.
But before talking about the best niches for blogging, let's share some history of how we at H-educate first started.
How did we start?
If you go to our blog, you can see the oldest articles almost all talk about one thing: email marketing.
But later on, our niche began to expand. This is what you need to do before picking the best niches for blogging.
We now post articles related to Webhosting, digital marketing, how to make money online, and much more. We now post articles about everything related to digital marketing and online business.
Rule Number 1: Start with a Micro Niche
See what we did there? The strategy goes by starting with a specific micro-niche.
When you want to pick a niche for blogging, you need to target a specific audience to target and get traffic from. It is not recommended to start with a very wide niche, as you will have tons of ideas to talk about. This will cause you to talk in general about the topic, which will not interest your audience.
When you talk about a specific micro-niche, you would be providing a detailed explanation about this topic. this will provide your audience something different than what is available online and hooks them to your articles.
Not only this, talking about the same topic, you will create multiple articles about the same topic, thus having connected articles that talk about similar keywords.
This will help you rank on google and drive free organic traffic to your blog.
Rule Number 2: Expand your Niche!
Once you start with a micro-niche, you will attract an audience that is interested in your topic. This will drive some traffic to your website.
Once you have a good audience and good traffic, it is time to expand your niche.
As we in H-educate did, we started with the email marketing niche. This attracted an audience that is just interested in email marketing.
How to pick the best niches for blogging?
Before showing some niche examples, let's discuss what you should keep in mind when picking up your blogging niche.
To find out the perfect niche for you, you should be able to answer the below 3 questions.
1-Do I have the passion to talk about this niche?
When you first start with your blog, you are so excited to start a new thing. Thus you start big, posting new content each week or so.
Then, one or two weeks later, you start to get bored and stop losing interest in the topic you are talking about.
This is why the first thing you need to look for when picking a niche is how much the topic interests you. The more you have a passion about the topic, the more you are willing to spend your time to talk about it.
2- Will this topic attract an audience?
If you find the niche that best suites your preferences, it is time to check if it will have a good attraction for the audience. After all, you are going to write to people, and they will have to decide if they continue reading your posts or not.
Now you may ask how to find the topics that are booming nowadays?
You can check Google Trends as a start. This will show you how much the topic you want to talk about is trending.
Another very simple way is to use h-supertools keyword research tool. This will help you find tons of specific terms for a general topic. You can find a micro-niche using keyword research!
3- Will this niche make me money?
It is important to know if the topic you decide to go with have good monetization methods. Of course, you can always start a blog and monetize it with ads, but there are several other ways to monetize your blog.
Check whether you niche has affiliate marketing, or if you can make a course about this niche. These are excellent ways to monetize your blog other than ads.
