You may just be getting starting within the world of blogging, or perhaps you have blogged before, but if you are considering starting a blog to earn money, then you are making a very wise decision!
Blogs have become a very lucrative piece of web property online because they have the highest return on your investment. This is because they require almost no investment to set one up, but can result in high profits.
Now, this all sounds great, but to ensure your success as a blogger, you have to make sure that you are getting into the right niche to begin with!
There are an infinite amount of niche topics that you could build a site around, but many of them won’t make you any money because they are too specific. For example, a site that focuses on glow in the dark shoes, won’t (I’d imagine?) get much traffic, therefore limiting its income potential. In contrast, a site that concentrates on women’s shoes, will be much more popular.
One of the most important things to remember when picking a niche, is that you must be interested in the subject. You could pick a great niche topic, with huge potential, but if you are not that interested in it, then you won’t put the work in that is needed.
Currently, there are three huge profitable niche topics online. These are; ‘Health & Fitness‘, ‘Relationships‘ and ‘Money & Finance‘.
Health & Fitness
This blog niche seems to be profitable no matter what time of year it is, the economic situation of the country, or how society and culture changes!
The health and fitness market is awash with narrow and targeted niches that you can focus on. Think about all of the different fields that fall under this category; diet, weight loss, exercise equipment, nutrition, etc.
Setting up a blog focused to answering some of the burning questions and needs people have with regards to their health and fitness level, would be very popular. After all, people will always be willing to pay in order to look and feel better. So a blog within this market is guaranteed to earn you money.
Another niche that has always been highly profitable is within the market of relationship advice. This is a huge market that has many targeted niches within it that you could build a site around. This can include; romantic relationship advice, dating sites, parenting advice, professional working relationships, social media, etc.
Our lives and our happiness is so dependent on the relationships that we have with one another, there will always be money in helping people to connect with others and lead a more fulfilling live.
Money & Finance
The third and arguably most profitable blog niche is money and finances! Everyone is always looking to improve their finances, make more money, set up a business, debt advice, getting a job, etc.
This is the niche that this site is built around, because I enjoy helping people learn how they can set up their own site and make money from it, which provides me with a nice income for myself. You yourself are reading this very article, so I must be doing something right!
