Hello, Welcome back to Blog Central. Where you learn how to blog.
Welcome back, today’s lesson in my series about blogging for a living will be an important one. Go back and read my introduction about blogging for a living. This link will take you there. The first important factor about blogging is finding a Niche.
This is the first step, especially if you are trying to start a blogging website. You could write about anything, but either you get an audience or not is determined if you even have a niche or not. In a second, I’ll tell you what a niche is. Because you are probably scratching your head and asking yourself, what the heck is a niche? What is this guy talking about, niche?
When you have your own blogging website, it’s a good idea to write about one certain area instead of writing random things.
When I first started out, I didn’t know what I was doing. My website was all over the place. Since joining Wealthy Affiliate, I have learned a great deal. I think my site is coming along great.
What Is Niche Marketing?
A Niche is something that you have a passion for. Something that you love to write about. Like, let’s say, Health could be a Niche, but that is too broad. So you would want to break it down. You could get into the losing weight niche, or vitamins to lose weight. You get the idea.
A niche market is a market which a specific product is focused on. There are thousand upon thousand of different niche that you could write about.
I hear all the time about doing several niches on one site. You don’t want to do that. You want to attract a certain audience. If you have more than one niche, the best thing you can do is have 1 websites. Here is my site, you might be able to see what my niche by the domain name.
patsreviews.com-This is my main and #1 site. The name of my site is Blog Central. It’s in the making money niche.
losingweightwithpat.com-This is my losing weight niche. Something I like because we need to eat better and maintain our weight
So, as you can see I have myself 3 different niches. You can check them out and tell me what you think.
How To Find Your Niche?
The first thing you want to do is follow your passion. That is always a good thing. I pretty sure that most people have more than one passion. Research all your niche’s. Break them down. Find a niche that will be profitable so you can make some cash.
When you do find your niche don’t just get on and start putting products. You want first to understand your audience. You should see what your audience wants instead of products. At least for now. Products come and go. An audience could be yours for a lifetime. You have to build trust to start a great and healthy relationship.
Next, do research on niche market keywords. You want to see what your audience is searching for. After all, you’re here to help people. There are several resources to do this. You could use google Adwords keyword tool, you could join wealthy affiliate and use their keyword tool. Also, the wealthy affiliate has access to jaaxy keywords. This is probably the best keyword tool out there.
So remember when you are looking for your niche, think of your audience first. In any business, you have to build trust and look out for the people that are keeping you in business.
