A niche market is where a specific product or topic is focused. The word niche comes from bloggers and really is another word for topic or market. Finding a profitable niche to get into can be tough due to the millions of blogs that are scattered all over the internet. But with a little research using the “Google Keyword Tool” it can help to find a good profitable niche. A lot of people using niche blogging to make money by using affiliate programs and Ad publishing networks. Picking a niche that you have a passion for or you have a lot knowledge about would be ideal.
Is My Niche Profitable?…
The key to finding a profitable niche is doing some research on that specific niche. You always want to do research on your niche before starting a blog or website. If you don’t you could be wasting a lot of time doing nothing if your niche is not profitable. I recommend using a keyword tool to determine if your niche is popular or not and see the competition that your going against. When getting into niche marketing researching is the most important part of the whole process.
Using a keyword tool will tell on average how many people are interested and searching that niche on a monthly basis. Finding a specific niche with a good keyword volume and low competition is always the way to go. You don’t want to compete against thousands of competitors in the same niche. Picking a targeted niche with specific keywords will help to be found in the top pages of search engines. Being found in search engines is always nice because it’s free traffic. Your goal is to find a keyword with low competition to rank on the first page of Google search for that specific keyword.
You want to have your keyword or phrase in your domain for your blog or website. Say you find a keyword or phrase such as “How to get rid of cellulite” you want to see if you can register a domain howtogetridofcellulite.com or whatever keyword you find is. Search engines love when you use your keyword in your domain and also helps when ranking in search engines. Ranking better will help tremendously for getting your blog found on the internet through people searching your keyword or phrase.
After you found a profitable niche it’s time to set up a blog or website to start making money. You can get domains for like a dollar for your first year through GoDaddy.com or get a free one from wordpress or blogger. I would suggest Blogger.com if your new to blogging because it easy to manage and make a blog. Blogger is also owned by Google and tends to rank well in the Google search engine. Using a free service like blogger your domain would be yourdomain.blogspot.com because it’s free. You have the option to get your own custom domain through blogger like yourdomain.com as well for fairly cheap.
Ways To Make Money Using Your Niche Blog
Using affiliate programs such as Clickbank, Amazon Associate, Google Adsense, Media.net and other affiliate related programs work the best. I would recommend the ones I have listed but you can also explore Google for affiliate programs to find more. You can also search your niche topic to find related affiliates just for that niche as well. Find ones that have good reviews and test them and see which you like and what they have to offer within your niche. There thousands of affiliate programs to choose from but I recommend reading reviews on them as well. Like I said previously researching is a very important step.
