How to find a Profitable Niche Market for your new blog?
What is a niche market anyway? A Niche Market is a specialized segment of the market for a particular kind of product or service.
Who creates a niche? Nobody. A niche does not exist. It is created by naming the needs of the audience.
What is a profitable niche for your blog?
I totally disagree with the opinion that earning money with a blog is all about finding a profitable niche.
The right niche for your blog is a niche that you are passionate about, something that you love.
When you write an article with passion, your article will reflect it. You will be open and honest. And your readers will sense that the article is coming from someone who knows what he is talking about.
This is the key to create a following and generate an income from your blog
If you love cooking, then select it, or if you love fishing then choose that.
Once you select your top level niche, then you can narrow it down to address a specific group. In the case of cooking, it could be Paleo or Atkin Recipes or if it is fishing, then fly fishing or surf fishing. It depends on what you really know about.
Why you need a niche for your blog?
Why not create a blog on everything about cooking instead of just Paleo or Atkins Diets?
You can do it; if you have enough budget to hire professional copywriters to write articles on all different cooking, vegetarian, Paleo, Vegan etc Even if you do it, chances are people who read it will immediately sense that it is not written by a cooking expert; unless you yourself is an expert in all these variations of cooking and you are writing it all yourself.
And if you are just getting into blogging, then this could damage your reputation as a trusted source for information.
If you concentrate on something that you know about, you don’t have this issue. Even if you outsource your writing projects, like many bloggers do, when you edit the article before you publish, you will know if something is not right. You can correct it immediately. Because you yourself have knowledge on your topic.
Frankly speaking, your chances to become a success is increased when you talk about something that you know and love about. And soon you will acquire dedicated followers. This should be the goal you should strive for.
By becoming an expert in your niche, your visitors will take your recommendations and buy on your advice.
Niche Marketing is a very focused form of marketing. When you focus on one well-defined group, you know what you need to write about. And you can come up with personalized articles with greater appeal to the audience. This will build a dedicated group of followers for your blog. This in turn, will make your blog a profitable one within a short time.
