WHAT IS A NICHE?
In blogging a niche is a kind of strategy or system where a blog specializes in specific content or product. That is; the blog content will only have posts on one section and more subsection. For example, tutsvela.com specializes in making money online, that is our niche but we have subsection like blogging and e-commerce.
WHAT IS A PROFITABLE NICHE?
A profitable niche is a niche that has more organic search value. It drives more traffic on its own when the best search engine optimization is acquired and being followed, such a niche is said to be profitable because more organic traffic can be transformed to revenue if proper percussions are taken
WHY A NICHE HAS TO BE PROFITABLE?
One of the main aims of starting a business is to generate revenue from it; if a business doesn’t generate income for you then it is not a business. A blog is a business and the primary aim of most bloggers is to earn money from a blog.
Your niche is the first place to start from when thinking of how to make money from your blog. Once you are on the right trail with your niche, things will be very easy for you to accomplish. You will find it very easy to do things mostly when it brings you money.
STEP BY STEP GUIDE IN FINDING A PROFITABLE NICHE
Consider your Interest
On planning to become a blogger, you have to be sure of what you what to blog about. Ask yourself this easy but puzzling question “what is my interest” or “what do I know how to do best”. An honest answer to that question will guide you on what you want to blog about.
Outline the possible activities you have knowledge about
Write out the possible activities you can carry out within your selected interest, for example, you love politics, in politics, you can have the following activities political discussion, political news, history of politician and more
Consider your time
Having the above activities noted down, now consider how you can get involved in any if not all of those activities online, “will you have the time? Will your schedule allow you?” To partake in any of these activities. One thing is finding a good niche and the other is managing that niche to meet up to expectations and demands from your readers are another thing.Editor tips: sometimes you might have multiple interests, so it’s better you have a deep thought, can you teach someone based on your interest? What can you really achieve with that interest?
Do a keyword research
This is the best part of all as this step will let you know if the above-listed activities will be patronize or if it is profitable for you to go into it. Good keyword research will kind you on how to plan the blog and even know content to concentrate more on.
Steps to do good niche keyword research
I will be using moz.com keyword research tools on this guide, this is what I used and it is free.
- Go to: Moz Keyword Tool
- In the search field please enter the keyword you which to do the research.
In this case, we used “politics news” as shown in the image below.
- Change the country to the targeted country that you which.
Note: The country has to be the country you want to have more traffic from for this case we use the United States.
- If you look down the list you will see a tittle that shows “keyword suggestion” the content will show you a list of suggested keywords or topics involved in your search query.
Note: This might stand as categories for your blog.
- On the keyword overview tab, it will show the rank value of your keyword. This will let you know if the keyword has more organic search value and how difficult or easy it will be for you to rank on this keyword.
HOW TO KNOW IF A NICHE IS PROFITABLE
Still, on the dashboard of the moz.com keyword research tool, any keyword that has a good organic CTR is profitable, at least 50% of Organic search value then such keyword will be profitable. In the example we used “politics news” and it has organic CTR of 64% that means this keyword is profitable and I can build a niche beside it.
HOW TO KNOW IF YOU SELECTED THE BEST NICHE
Am sorry to say this but I don’t think you will be able to detect that until you have started the blog for about couple of month, the possible outcome will make you know if you have picked the right niche
WHAT TO DO IF YOU DON’T HAVE IDEA ABOUT A NICHE
If you don’t have an idea about a niche then you should change the niche because you will only get frustrated along the time of blogging with that niche, things will not be easy for you, and you will find it difficult to manage such blog.
This post is very important for you to study before you start any blog that is if you intend to make money from your blog. If you follow this guide properly you will have nothing to panic as your blog will be your next money-making machine in a few months.
