When it comes toward starting a blog. The most though job is the selection of most profitable niche in blogging that have greater demand, big community high authority and low competition. But unfortunately it’s one of the hard work and mostly the newbie bloggers are failed while choosing their niche. I have seen so many people who says that passion is everything. But only following passion is not the key toward success. If you want to build authority, if you want to become popular and if you want to earn money from your living room. Than you would need to slightly change you’re thought and select the niche that have some demand. Also you must know about the niche that what reader actually want from you and how can you convert your reader into customer by selling product online.
But before going to select any niche lets decide on which topic you are actually building a blog.
Well so easy “I will target the whole technology market” or blogging or Traveling niche…
Fine but we can’t say this is blogging. Because such type of work need a team of professional blogger who can write on every aspect of selected market. At least 5-20 post per day. Which is I think not possible for a starter who have no knowledge of even selecting a niche.
Before going to explore the most profitable niche to start blogging in 2015 lets set and ask some question from yourself?
1) Why I am choosing this niche?
Have you noticed while attending a class of your favorite teacher and Non favorite teacher?You feel comfortable, happy and have a wish in mind that teacher take a lengthy class. While on other side when you are setting in a non-favorite or a teacher whom you don’t like class. You will be feeling uncomfortable, with a wish of shorter class. Same in the case of choosing a niche, by selecting such niche which bring happiness and smile on your face while write a piece of content on it is the best one niche for you and your blog. You will write quality content because you love your passion. The topic or niche may be related to any of your interest. Ask from yourself and you will get the answer.
2) DO you have any background knowledge?
The main question which arise here is that many newbies haven’t much knowledge on the niche that choose. So what they do… First question is ask from yourself? Are you ready for writing on selected niche? Because blogging is all about leaning and experiencing new things. So don’t be afraid of telling the people that you are newbie and the purpose to write on this is all about learning new things. But one thing to remember. Don’t share false information just for the sake of traffic.
3) Check your Niche popularity
As you like to search and read only those topic in which you have interest, same other people too. So the best think before the selection of a niche is to do proper research. Search Google, Facebook groups and pages, LinkedIn twitter use different tools, study magazine and know that how many people are interested in your niche.
There are many tools through which you can determine the market size. Some of them are:
Search Google and you will find the answer
Search Facebook with hashtag
4) How Many other Blogs are covering the same Topic?
Here come two probability while selecting the most profitable niche in blogging. May be you find a niche market which have low competition and higher searches or having low competition in the day of choosing your niche but may have higher demand in future. While the 2nd probability is either you choose such on which there may be thousands of weblogs and contents. In the case of if you choose the 2nd option. Just ask 1 question may I get succeed? If you find yourself in doubt, don’t go for it. But if you have believe on yourself just close your eyes and select the niche. There are more chances of getting succeed if you go for the 1st 1 due to low competition and future market expansion.
So my advice is do not make it harder for yourself. The hard work which you want to spent on ranking your competitive website is better to spend on such website which can take less time in ranking and generating income.
5) Examine your Competitor blogs
The most common thing which I have found in our blogger community especially in Asian countries are they check there competitor weblogs and write the same post as they have seen there. In a result all their effort become 0. Always ask and try one thing “What can I do better from my competitor”?
For the purpose to do something better, cursor down to the comment section and read the comments. You will find very interesting topic for your blog. Search online forums like worriorforum, inbound.org and many others. Always try to do SWOT (strength, weakness, opportunity, and threat) analysis of your competitor weblog.
6) Is there Enough Topics on the Niche you are covering?
Blogger have 3 main source for writing contents. The one is his/her previous knowledge learnt from different sources. The 2nd source is what he is seeking now a days and what his thought for future either lunching a product or doing the same thing of what and how is. To know how much knowledge you have in the field? Just set down and start brainstorming different weblog post. May be some of them came fast but after some time you will find yourself in a cave with no light. But after thinking for some time you will start getting light of new topics. Just try to collect at least 30-50 content for your favorite chosen niche.
Writing articles for technology and news type website is not as difficult as their lot of new thing invent and happen on daily basis.
