Stay away from any niche that you don’t want to go 100% full force into. Honestly, any niche can work if you can provide value and attract your audience.
What to blog about: “What you will not stop talking about” … where your passion and interests are!
1. Upside-down guest post. – Helpful resource section with 2-3 links, with your content as one of the links. 2. Use click to tweet link – Find something tweetable, e.g technique, quote, etc – Add link to your content for easy sharing. 3. Publish more LIST posts. – Ton of traffic – 5x more than “How-To” posts 4. Overhaul and upgrade old blog posts. 5. Add Share Triggers to content. – Social currency: Sharing info that makes the sharer look good, boosting their social currency. 6. Go on podcasts – Established audience exposure. – Back-links in show notes 7. Create predictably viral content – Visuals, lots of it. – Utility/practicality – Long-form content (>3000 words) – Initial “push” is needed. 8. Post on social media at strategic times. 9. Content transformation – eBook, blog post, video 10. Check Similar web – Best traffic sources in your niche – Check out competitors 11. Join Forums – Answering questions on forums. etc
I don’t think there is a single answer for this because success will be determined at the individual level. The best niche for affiliate marketing for one person will be different than another person. Person A will excel in the Health and Wellness niche, Person B in the tech niche and each would not necessary do so well if they switched places. Choose a niche based on your own strengths and willingness to learn everything about that niche. You could choose a highly lucrative niche, such as the Make Money Online niche, but if you suck at writing about it and cannot build a relationship with your audience, then you won’t see the same results as another highly successful person in that same niche.
The travel niche is broad, but there are many products that can be sold for the travelers. An idea would be to focus on products or services that make travelling life easier.
There are numerous affiliate products and also services you can sell in the travel niche. Keep in mind that the travel niche on its own is a very broad topic with lots of sub niches.
One of the first questions you need to ask yourself should be: “What is my demographic?”. Try to first narrow down your niche to determine what products to sell to specific target groups – your audience. That will make promoting product a much easier task. One tip we have is: search on Amazon for “travel”, there are close to 14 MILLION results.
This should give you plenty of inspiration for picking affiliate products.
You can sell many thing some of which are;
- Bag packs
- Packing cubes (amazing storage product and trending item)
- Water bottle with water filter (high demand product and also very useful)
- Trolleys and light weight suitcases and other handy travel bags
- Trekking shoes
- Trolley, suitcases
- Travel Books
- Action cams
- Dslr equipment and accessories
- Video Cameras
- Beauty Products
- Travel Movies
- Travel equipment like portable fridge, storage etc.
- Camping stuffs
Other tips and tricks:
- You can research at Marketplace – ClickBank under the Travel category to find suitable products to promote.
- Travel related Services which you are passionate might help to grow your audience fast.
The best (travel related) affiliate sites to join up for are these:
- Tripadvisor Affiliate program
- TravelPayouts (online travel affiliate program to promote travel services, best travel deals, hotels, cheap flights, tours, insurance, car rent and others travel related services/products).
- Agoda Affiliate Program
- Skyscanner Affiliate program
- AirBnb Referral Program (The Airbnb’s referral program is a good way to get some coupon credit or travel credit up to $5,000 per user)
- Amazon Associates
- GetYourGuide (tours and tickets affiliate, commission of 8 % and higher)
- Booking.com (pays a portion of their commission on reserved accommodations. Usually the percentage is 25%)
I hope this list will help you to monetize your travel website
Tip: you need to connect Google Console (Previously called Google Webmaster Tools) to get better data from Queries and importantly to get the Average Position.
There’s a great video by Matt Cutts that explains this very well: https://youtu.be/KyCYyoGusqs – This is where the secret sauce is revealed 😉
Here are some of the best free website builders:
- Wix – Best All-Around Website Builder
- Weebly – Ideal for Small Businesses
- SITE123 – Great Design Assistance
- WordPress – Perfect for Blogging
- GoDaddy – Best for Building a Site Quickly
- Strikingly – Made for Simple Websites
- Jimdo – Small Online Store Builder
Either one can work well. I think it’s important to have a site.
Researching keywords you want to target and understanding your particular niche. See who is scoring under those particular keywords in your targeted niche.
It’s average about $1/per active listing/per month (and that goes for Teespring, Merch by Amazon, and RedBubble). Hope that makes sense, for example 100 shirts on each site is about $300/mo total (or $100/mo from each site). I hope that helps!
How much attention do you pay to keyword density. I am usually in the range of 2-4% just by writing in a natural way without keyword stuffing. But are 4% already too much and would Google penalize me for that?
Are more words in my blog post better to get a higher Google Ranking in the SERP’s?
Is it ideal to have the most words, if the content is good? Can I have TOO many words? Just wondering if it’s ideal to get one’s article into the top end of the count?
Google has no way of verifying/deciding what ‘good’ is, google is a math based algorithm… So play the numbers…
Yes, veganism can be a successful niche. There are plenty of bloggers in the plant-based food world. Hope this helps!
Can I monetize my blog like using affiliate products?
You can start off by selling others’ coding for bloggers courses and coding books. Hope this helps!
Is Bluehost hosting more affordable and less expensive than WordPress in a way that it gives more value for this little price?
We absolutely recommend Bluehost for beginners. It will provide you more flexibility than hosing with WordPress. We love WordPress for CMS, not for hosting
I use the Amazon Affiliate program to monetize my site, but what other methods are good for revenue?
We have experienced the best income from our own digital products. Hope this helps!
I have been thinking about starting a blog in the personal development niche, but can it be profitable?
When it comes to blogging, the sky’s the limit on earning potential. The personal development/self-help niche has proven very profitable for many entrepreneurs
You can blog about whatever you’d like, but making it profitable is another thing. We of course can’t tell you for sure that a particular idea would be profitable, but my recommendation would be to do some research on similar types of blogs or niches first.
We like MOZ keyword research tool and Google’s AdWords Keyword Planner.
Should I expand my topics for now. I’m just starting out and I know there is an audience for my main topic, but I’m not reaching them.
Expanding can be helpful at the beginning to see what your readers are most interested in. Just make sure that you don’t expand too much and have too broad of a focus, because then you may not attract anyone (your blog will look and come across as too unfocused).
I want to start a blog about helping introverted people improve their confidence and become successful – is that a specific niche?
Do you think that is specific enough as a niche? I have a little bit of knowledge about what I want to talk about, but how can you still create content when you’re not an expert in that field?
Absolutely! It’s specific, yet has the potential for a large audience. Being an expert in a field doesn’t necessarily mean you have a degree or certification, but simply that you have personal experience you can share with your audience. It also means you have a willingness to continue learning everything you can about that niche. Of course, as you get further into your blogging career, adding additional training or certifications (if applicable) to back up your “expertise” won’t hurt.
Even a highly automated website cannot be 100% automated all the time. The website requires maintenance and we always recommend creating new content and updating old content to make sure everything is relevant to today.
If i was going to start a blog on a topic that I’m passionate about and also went to college for (digital marketing) but of course more niche down, even though i am still pretty new in the space with little real world results yet but I know the strategies and things would you still suggest blogging in that area or would it not work since I don’t have enough work experience?
As long as you are committed to continue learning about the niche, it’s totally ok if you don’t start out with the experience. Part of your story can be your journey to becoming the expert.
For example I’m trying to create a blog and I want to share videos made by other YouTubers in one of my posts. I was wondering what the legal issues are around this?
YouTubers have the option to allow embedding or not, so if embedding is an option when sharing, you are good to go. You cannot download the video to upload to your blog though. Only embedding is allowed.
Are people searching during specific time on specific days of the week?
The times you promote you blog on social media matter more than the time it’s published on the website. And the best time to promote will vary by niche. Google analytics will break down your traffic by day and time so you can see when you get the most traffic to our blog.
I’m a camera shy person and more focused on writing. Is it sufficient or do I HAVE to make videos to grow online?
You can still find success without creating videos, but video content does help build trust with your audience. This may sound silly, but consider going over to TikTok to make videos over there. It’s a great way to practice being on camera without the pressure of “being profession” on camera. Just food for thought 😉
We don’t recommend starting with a free website. At the very least, invest in paid hosting. For beginners, we recommend Bluehost+WordPress.
While it is possible to post random stuff and still grow a following, it may take longer to monetize than if you were to have a specific niche where you are an authority on the subject.
Writing about a topic you don’t know anything about is perfectly fine if there’s passion! Be sure to do your research before writing, however; don’t harm your credibility by jumping the gun and writing articles on something you’re not confident in!
I think it a great idea, especially when your end goal is to drive your audience to make a purchase 🙂
I’m afraid that if I niche down my blog topic, after some time, I won’t be able to produce new content cause I have already covered everything since my niche is too narrow!
How small should you narrow your niche into before you start isolating potential viewers?
Depends on the topic. You can start semi-broad in a niche, then niche-down depending on what content your audience engages with the most.
As you learn and become more of an expert in your niche, you will find new content to write. But you will also spend time updating older content to make sure it’s relevant to the current day and time with the latest and greatest info.
I have seen this on so many blogs, where every year they just freshen up or update existing content. They don’t write any new content, they update what they already have. Secondly as your blog grows so will you and so will the content, how people consume it, what they need and so you adapt to the changes as when they happen. You should be OK
How Many Blog Posts Should You Write Per Month?
it is all about quality over quantity, but what about frequency? Is there a sweet spot as to how many blog posts per week or month in the 2020 blogging world?
It really depends on the niche and how in-depth your articles are. Starting out, simply post as often as you can without sacrificing quality.
Blog until your fingers bleed. Good content and lots of it. Some affiliate marketers are posting three or more blogs a week whether it be advice or product reviews. And the stats from a few sites shows how sales are increased by blogging more.
Content IS King….but only if it’s quality content. We don’t think you should post more if the quality suffers. But, the level of quantity vs. quality will vary greatly by person and by niche.
How many would you recommend for a new blog?
Beginners new bloggers should aim for 3 to 4 articles published per week. After 3 to 4 months when some domain authority is established then publish 1 – 2 per week. This is a superb strategy to destroy the competition!
- Quality rather than quantity
- Help people do something (teach people something new)
- Social media is you friend
- Blogs are becoming harder to become passive
- Become a subject matter expert in a niche you are passionate about 6. Plan on doing it for a long time
- Always look for low-competition keywords to write about in the first case.
Do you write your articles by yourself ? or you hire someone to write on behalf of you ?
Does it count when I upgrade my articles? (I mean: re-write them and making them longer)
Content is important but there is so much more going on in making a website successful that if you over-concentrate on 1 aspect you will invariably lose out in the end. Having said that, content is (an will always be) king!
I’ve seen blogs in 2 languages, so I imagine 3 could work too if you have it organized properly. I’m not sure how that effects (or if it even does) Google ranking.
Determination to succeed.
It really depends on the niche and how technical or in-depth the information is. But starting out, it’s good to aim for 1-2 posts a week until you build up a good amount of content.
creating a single blogging website with different sections and tabs? or creating different blogging websites for each niche so they are not related at all?
It’s best to keep a blog to a specific niche. You can have several sub-niches, but they need to fall under the same umbrella.
I would want to know if it is a good idea to create a blog that talks about everything that interests me( technology, travelling, art, etc) or is it better to create different blogs for these?
You can do either. Sometimes it’s better to have a more targeted audience because it can be easier to market products to them. There are also a lot of lifestyle blogs that have multiple topics though.
I would like to purchase a WordPress hosting plan but I’m a bit confused whether I should go for Bluehost or GoDaddy?
We recommend Bluehost (managed WordPress hosting) or Cloudways (self managed WordPress hosting on the Cloud) for hosting. We would not advise anyone to sign up with GoDaddy as their servers and service are below par (do a Google search on this to verify)
By a specific niche I mean to really narrow down or simply take a broader perspective, for example: Making money (broader) or making money with eBay (more specific); fitness(broader) or building muscle for men(more specific)..
You can do both! Start a little broader and niche down depending on what your audience is most interested in.
You could also pick a few subtopics that relate to your high level topic, but can move in a lateral market direction. By doing this you stay true to your main niche, but have plenty of topics to write about.
Can you make money with every niche or should you opt for a profitable one?
As a start-up you must be careful about how to put it all together with the right way as time is money and investment in my time is paramount.
You want to avoid making a lot of mistakes, but don’t be afraid to make mistakes either. It’s one of the ways we learn. Some of this is inevitably trial and error.
I find that those who write about their day job, career, or degree field they succeed faster. They’re already passionate & experienced.
Does blogging about your fiction even work?
A lot of fiction writers use a blog to connect with their readers, providing a sort of “behind the scenes” picture. It’s also a great way to promote to books that you are publishing. I recommend researching blogs of other fiction writers to see what they are doing 🙂
I wouldn’t bother with Twitter. It’s very difficult to drive traffic from that platform. Focus on Pinterest and consider using Instagram which is a very visual platform. The best way to get your content in front of larger audiences on Pinterest while you are growing is to utilize Tailwind Tribes.
What makes a person qualified to be an expert in something?
An expert is someone with experience and willingness to learn everything they can about the topic. Even if you don’t start out as the expert, you can become one through the process of blogging as you learn more about your niche and how to provide value to your audience.
You don’t have to start out as the expert, but be willing to learn all you can about a topic and become an expert 😉
Become an expert in you niche! Own the topic!
If you’ve googled anything in the last week, that’s proof blogging isn’t dead…😂
Blogging is definitely evolving, but very much alive.
Even now in 2020 there are plenty of people making a great living off their blogs.
But keep in mind that some industries are more saturated than others.
Some key blogging tips for those just starting on the blogging journey:
- If you start from scratch, then don’t try to sell in your blogs.
- Bring value first, increase the level of TRUST and AUTHORITY. (solve people’s problems and answer their questions)
- When you have a loyal audience, then sell them. (affiliate marketing is definitely a way to monetize your blog. For example you can suggest products that have worked for you.)
Maybe the future of blogging is teaching others how to do it… (free niche idea there)
My understanding of a micro niche is best beds for dogs and all you do is blog about dog beds – But it can be even smaller. Bed dog beds for Yorkshire terriers 😀👍 in some niches that’s still millions of visitors a month.
For example: how would you build a laser focused site that niche is best dog beds for yorkies?
If you’re wanting to sell products I would create an awesome landing page then write species specific posts on various dog topics which include a link to your main landing page. URL specific to the breed of dog might help as well.
Hmmm that’s tricky to answer as a regional website could still be targeting a wide niche. So, it will depend on the niche and topic. Ie: I could have a regional website that was health related so NOT a micro niche… but I could have a regional website that covered… depression within a particular community. That would be a micro niche. Hope I have explained that okay.
It maybe micro but you have a very targeted audience. 1 great product can smash it. High paying ads as well due to it being targeted.
– Create unique content that stands out – How to stand out from the competition using stories – How to stand out on social media as an entrepreneur – How to get more views on YouTube by using the infotainment strategy – How to get more views on Instagram with these strategies to stand out – And more. If you’re a content creator, I really believe this can help you stand out in a competitive niche and make a name for yourself.
Building a personality and brand is key to success in your niche.
I think a key for a channel is just getting the initial ball rolling in terms of views, get some great video ideas.
Promote those videos on relevant fb groups, subreddits, forums etc. Share on social media and get the word out.
“there is no perfect product”, If you are perfectionist in your daily life then product research can become frustrating because you’re constantly looking for perfection. Give yourself a one month time frame to find a product or niche. If you dont approach it like this then you’ll be searching for perfection forever and you’ll never start my journey.
Also when looking for a product find a way to differentiate it and look at the reviews to see any issues and improve upon it – dont just crank out tons of marginal content, but really try and help your reader/follower
Everything I’ve seen online suggests targeting something more low cost and low risk.
There are a lot of reasons why we focus on expensive products, but some of the main ones are: 1) You can actually earn a good profit per sale. 2) You can do less work while earning more money. 3) It’s easier to buy paid traffic and turn a profit…. and there are a bunch more.
Also, the perceived value is higher with more expensive items!
Recently, I’ve noticed a lot of “Video Carousels.” We don’t have a video on this (yet), but you can certainly run some tests and see how it works out for you.
Buzzsumo or Ahref Content Explorer as comparing to Google trends to finding Trending topics?
If you’re struggling to decide, or you need more data to work with, use the following five steps to find your niche.

Finding Your Niche: 7 Steps
Think about your interests and passions
Solve problems for your audience
Carry out competitor analysis
Do keyword research
Assess your niche
Find your unique selling point
Test your idea
Finding a niche is one of the most common questions I get asked. And it can be really confusing to figure out what sort of niche to choose and what will be successful. In this video I explain 3 ways to find a niche idea for an Amazon Affiliate site. They are: 1. Browse Categories in Amazon 2. Browse Large Retail Shops 3. Browse Google That’s it! These ideas are easy and simple to help you find a niche that you could potentially build a site around.
I see green tea as a product rather than a niche. The question to ask is “Who buys green tea, and why?” Whoever those people are, if they fit the criteria laid out, it might be profitable to build a niche site for them. Does that make sense?
You should focus on the process of testing different ads, and optimizing your funnel to improve metrics like opt-in rate, CTR, etc.
I like the web hosting niche but I feel it’s almost impossible to rank for related keywords that are very competitive.
That’s the problem, everyone thinks they need to rank for the main keywords…. I don’t and I make plenty. There are 1000s if not 100s of 1000s of keyword variations that can be targeted.
We sometimes use it sure, but you would need multiple products to build out a good funnel for it to work.
When you sign up for Amazon did you know you have 180 days to make 3 sales you are accepted not approved. If you do not make 3 sales in 180 days you are kicked out of the program. You can apply again when 180 days are over again.
It could be but it’s not used nearly as much as Amazon.
Can you have affiliate links for Amazon and other programs on your website or does Amazon have a non-competitive clause? Will I be violating any terms?
30K views would come nowhere near $1K on YouTube (AdSense). You would need 800K++ to get that on YouTube.
I am using Adsense. But need other ad revenue to diversify. At what point should I integrate ads?
I think a mix of ads, affiliate and your own product in a mix is the answer because they all ebb and flow. This way you cover all bases.
Diversification is key. More than one site. More than one source of income.
There is a rule in business that says “never take more than a third of your income from any one source.” This is to avoid any other person or company from having too much control over your income. I guess this applies online as well.
Good advice: Be more specific. Add value but add some multi media flavor. Niche down and make a connection
understand if I’m just starting my first passive income site I should really probably still stick to Amazon affiliate marketing since I won’t have access to premium ad services so ads wouldn’t make much and I don’t have an info product yet.
Amazon has decimated their commission structure again – is Amazon affiliate marketing still worthwhile?
Amazon is a great place to start because it is so easy to sell, but honestly, going out and finding those “hidden gem” Affiliate Programs is where the money really is.
We’ve been talking about not relying solely on Amazon for over a year. Second, we are NOT AT ALL saying we aren’t using amazon anymore. It’s still a major piece of our monetization as we said in the video. All we’re saying is we never ONLY use Amazon to monetize anymore. We like to diversify. Third, we are earning more from passive sites than ever before. With a diversified approach we are seeing great results. Diversification of revenue streams is always going to be better in the long term.
Amazon’s affiliate program is solid. But, I agree, rules and terms can change at any moment. I had that problem with my FBA business. Digital info products are definitely the best. It’s always smart to have your own platform or list otherwise you can lose control of your business.
Amazon is moving the cheese, it is time to look for the new cheese!
Ahrefs, Alexa, Semrush, etc. Most good SEO tools can do it… Always an estimate, really… But gives an idea.
I believe there are sports-related companies (especially products) that have their own affiliate program so you can start applying for that 🙂 Also, the Amazon affiliate program is also a great way to start since they also sell sports-related products.
On Pinterest or in general? No such thing on Pinterest really. Where you have a lot of traffic there you have all the potential + Pinterest gives a boost to new sites, new pins, new accounts.
If I want to post 10 different pins for the same blog post, would little difference in title of pin create any issues?
If you want to have 10 different pin images, you are already doing a good thing – Pinterest likes a lot of fresh content. But you have to make sure you don’t save them all in one day and to multiple boards!
You can experiment with pin titles and use different keywords for them, Pinterest doesn’t penalize for this – if you are doing it to show your pin from a different perspective and it’s not used to deceive users then it can be only good and not a bad practice!Show less
Your pin can show up on your feed and your followers’ feeds the moment you publish it!
Or should I just offer tips for my audience and not share much about my personal journey.
It’s all up to you! I believe sharing your own journey will be appreciated by your readers and it will serve as proof that you know what you are talking about and the tips you give are proven and tested 🙂
Is focusing more on a YouTube channel rather than a blog better or combining both YouTube and a blog site?
Doing both YouTube and blogging has been a great decision for us and has provided many more follower than just one on its own.
Are niches like “ self worth and happiness aka self empowerment “ related to lifestyle niche profitable?
They could be in the lifestyle niche but they might get overthrown by other content that fit more in that niche (like home decor, etc). There is quite a huge community on the Personal Development niche on Pinterest, and yes, they are profitable as well 🙂
There are quite a number of education-related bloggers out there. And since it is not a saturated niche, you will have less competitors and higher chances of ranking. Though you will have to be patient in getting traffic because it does not have that much big of an audience as lifestyle blogs, etc. But if its your passion I still urge you to go for it! 🙂
I’am a therapist and I’ve been thinking of creating a blog about mental health (anxiety, self-esteem, self-care and so on). Is health and wellness a good niche?
In general you need to be careful about this niche especially on Pinterest. They are quite strict about what you can and can’t advice related to public health). https://policy.pinterest.com/en/community-guidelines Check here the section about Misinformation and don’t try to promote any drugs for mental health (Pinterest ads definitely will be rejected) – organically you can work in this niche but again be really careful with the choice of topics.
Do you think I can make money from my personal blog or should I start over and pick a different niche?
It depends on what you mean by a personal blog… are you writing in it about your everyday life? In this case it will be very hard to monetize it – you need to write about things that solve the problems of your audience or answer their questions.
If you are talking about a new Pinterest account and a new website, you need to give it at least 3-4 months to see the first pins of yours ranking somewhere. That’s approximately how often Pinterest makes search updates – 3-4 times a year and during these search updates new pins can potentially get keywords assigned to them and start ranking for them.
Sure you can! You can place ads on your websites as well as affiliate links.
That’s news for us as the weight loss niche is a successful niche on Pinterest and they don’t really go against Pinterest’s Community Guidelines. I believe that as long as you don’t make insensitive headlines and descriptions and don’t direct users to weight loss scam websites, then you’d do fine.
Is there any legal way that I could share food recipes/videos blog posts from other food related websites to my website?
As long as you source them correctly and link the recipes back to the owner’s website then you should be fine 🙂
You can get an Ahrefs subscription for $7 for 7 days. Do all your research in those 7 days and then cancel before the subscription renews (if you don’t want to keep the subscription)
When you start out, just target keywords with difficulty “0” or “1” or “2” maximu, and you will rank, if you write long content, without any backlinks.
No, you can’t use Adsense on Google Sites, unfortunately. It costs around $60 a year to have your own site on your own domain and it’s totally worth the investment
I’m very well aware of how hard it is to actually make blogging work… I’m ready to put in 70-80 hour weeks for 10 years if I know that at one point, i’ll be able to just let the ‘money machine’ do its things (bring organic traffic, send them to my funnels and make money while I just make sure all my ‘systems’ are working properly), while I travel around the globe…
From an experienced blogger: I think the biggest misconception about the 4-hour work week is that it assumes your content never has to be updated, that you never need to learn new skills, and don’t need to spend any time promoting yourself. I don’t work 70-80 hours every week anymore, and I work my own schedule around my leisure time and travel. The “work” I do is enjoyable, so it doesn’t feel like work, and I can do it from anywhere.
Can you please tell me more about YMYL (Your Money, Your Life) space niches.

How many articles will I need to write for my blog to get some traction with Google and also visitors?
Do you have a rough estimate of articles that’s I would need to write?
It’s hard to see results with only a few posts. I recommend to post at least 10-15 before expecting any serious results.

Its hard is to get an audience for my channel. How do you get enough audience to make Affiliate marketing work?
Is it better to have a separate website for each niche or I can combine 2 or more niches in the same website?
You’re most likely to enjoy building an affiliate site in a niche you already enjoy, which makes your hobbies a good place to start. For example, I love cooking so I might consider building an affiliate blog promoting cookware.
The great thing about using a hobby for your niche is your existing familiarity with the topic. This means you’ll spend less time doing research, which makes the writing process less stressful. Trust me, if you pick a niche that you don’t enjoy on some level, the work will be a chore.
If you have many interest, then start brainstorming how you would monetize each of the interest. Then choose the one that makes the most sense, business-wise
But whatever you pick you always have to provide value in order to succeed!
Picking a niche for TikTok is about what is popular most people on TikTok have a personal brand account and do what is popular following the trend and putting effort into your videos.
Look on Aliexpress and Alibaba and try to find products with a lot of orders, plenty of good reviews and also if the seller is well reviewed and it has to have a good product image. TIP test your products by yourself, buy it and make a test video for example
For anyone still deciding what to pick I recommend choosing something, you have passion for. If you make content about something you enjoy then you’re more likely to stick with it
Don’t beat yourself up if you dont have the right niche idea, dont get stuck in paralysis by analysis. Dont overthink it just get doing something.

E-commerce, Education/Info products and Real Estate!
Pinterest Videos. Working for a lot of people right now.
Definitely ads. From there, it depends on the angle you take. Are you just discussing topical political views or are you teaching people how to get into politics? The second will have more avenues for monetization

The modern version of AdWords REQUIRES that you already have a website running. You cannot make an account without it.
A good rule of thumb, DONT BE AFRAID TO FAIL. Failure is the quickest way to success 🙂
I always take inspiration from Edison. He failed over 10,000 times before inventing the light bulb. He succeeded once, and once was enough.

Niching down means having a clear focus on who your ideal target customer is and aligning your marketing to match.
The logic to this is simple: Catering to a larger market or audience will require the investment of more marketing dollars to reach that market, as well as more technology or personnel to satisfy their needs, if and when you do reach them
Dont make the mistake of being too broad with topics when you first start. It totally makes sense about being specific with a niche. Try instead to get into the “zone of genius”!
I think you can be a bit more specific. I think something like “vegan lifestyle” can be a niche and have its targeted audience
In order to start a niche and have rankings as a beginner go after low competition keywords and niches
When I use Google search engine to find popular keywords, the recommended searches are affected by my history and past searches. How do I avoid this?
Try using the browser in the incognito mode or wipe your browser history
It will take some time and effort for your article to start ranking. Various factors will determine how fast you show up in Google.
And what domain name register do you use?
We recommend Bluehost, Siteground or Cloudways (more for the pro user) for brand new sites and we use NameCheap for our domain registrations.
You can use the autocomplete function in Google to find keywords then click on the top result and read the length of content.
Using Google Suggest is a good idea. The feature is also available at the bottom of every search results page. This tends to be a great tool to use for finding sub-topics for your article or web-page. One last point – using Google Keyword Planner is critical for justifying whether or not a keyword strategy is worth pursuing large SEO campaigns. Most people like to see some evidence as to whether or not your strategy will work. The worst case scenario is the projections are lower than the actual results, which is fine. So, even if you want to use Google Suggest to find keywords, I would still plug them into Keyword Planner to create a basic benchmark.
You can literally find unlimited topics to write about now, and the best thing is it’s not just guessing at keywords like other keyword tools. It is going directly to Google and getting exactly what Google is suggesting when you manually type it in. I don’t think you can get any more current than that..
With some writing effort you can outrank Yahoo or Google answers etc for long-tailed keywords that people are ACTUALLY searching for.
You can outwrite the small articles but be aware of the big authority websites (hard to outrank them)
If I’m going after a keyword, is it better to make a 10 minute video or 1000 word blog post? Which will have the faster and/or longer lasting effect with results?
Video gets followers faster, but written content has keywords which rank faster – try a combination of both 😉
Don’t focus so much on back-links but rather write long meaty high quality content and the back-links will come naturally. You need good articles for other writers/webmasters to link too!
Is it to be the medium or does it have to be an industry, or, a combination of the two? Have not been able to decide for a long long time, and have remained stuck with no business.
A niche usually describes the type of business you write for. So more of the “industry”. You could also specialize in a specific medium too. But niche is generally more industry related. Hope that helps!
Try not to make the mistake on focusing too much on which niche is profitable instead of focusing on who you want to serve and what their specific problem that you can actually solve!
There are always variations across different tools because each tool uses different factors to collect data.
You can use keyword research tools like Ubersuggest to see how many people are searching for each keyword
Can I backlink from my own sites to my mian moneysite? Or should I just go comment on other blog post and forums?
Links in blog comments and forums don’t really help. Try building links from sites in your niche by guest posting.
If you are passionate about health and fitness then definitely go for it. It’s a great niche. Very competitive, but always space for more competition.
Contact the most relevant ones in your niche and figure out ways to collaborate that will help both of you
I want to start a blog about gaming with reviews and guides but I can’t decide whether I should go with one game or multiple?
Start with the one game, and then expand in the future maybe 🙂
They do vary a bit but they are both extremely accurate and awesome tools
For example – sports,gym and music.
It is better to focus on one niche then split it up between more than one
It depends on a lot of factors like niche and target audience. Some channels work better than others.
pick your niche around your passion not money
Blogging Step 1 Pick a topic you enjoy talking about. Step 2 Research The next step is to make sure that there’s a profitable and big enough market for your topic. and find a sub (smaller) niche.step 3 Look what the competition is like for your niche
step 4 find product/service something you can make money/being profitable
Specialists are in demand. Dont be a jack-of-all-trades.
master one Niche and then move forward with a second one the main point is to show your clients your knowledge of that niche and what you can do instead of showing your interested in their money that the confident you show them and they will do business with you. understand your market, know who is buying from you
Say you have a website that sells affiliate products, is that considered a business?
Yes it is considered a business
Absolutely! Affiliate marketing isn’t always about what you like the most. Sometimes is finding the market with the most opportunity. It’s always better to have a passion, but not necessary
If you have been agonizing over finding a good niche without a real passion for any one particular topic, the best thing to do is just get started and let it develop. A passion is not there automatically – passions are developed over time.
“Passions are not found. They are developed.”
When you have a niche for your blog, you have a lot more tools available to you. Plus, you can look at your content to see which posts are popular and revive them with a fresh new angle.
I’ve experimented with a couple of niches. Now I have several sites that are in “mixed” markets, how do you think I should advance with selecting a niche to concentrate on?
I’d now pick the best one with the highest potential and that you’ve had the most success with thus far and build your business around that niche.
Affiliate marketing is better as it’s more scalable, passive and probably something you’d enjoy better.
Go to Legalzoom.com or you can hire a lawyer. You can learn yourself but it can be fairly advanced. This is something you want to get right from the get-go otherwise the consequences can be great.
An authority site would most likely come to fruition 2-3 years out.
If you are passionate about music, specially guitars or other instruments and you find yourself constantly coming back to the music niche then it might be worth a shot. The music niche has a lot of competition so you will have to compete by adding excellent content for your followers. Give them something unique!
If you know where you want to focus on then just do it! Competition is a good thing proves there is money in it!
Just look at your competition and find thing they didn’t do well or didn’t do at all and do it better, longer and more in depth!
You can use Reddit’s ‘Subreddits’ ranking numbers etc. You can check the Recent Activity or the subscribers/ Growth columns for any potential niches with growth.
You just want to see growth… In the seeing world it may be a lot smaller than the gardening world and that is fine… Seeing there is activity and it is growing is key. then you compare the numbers of how fast it’s growing and engaging versus the other niche opportunities you have on your list
- research if the overall niche trend is showing that there is interest
- find out if there are a large number of keywords that have search traffic
- find out if there are high-priced products for affiliate marketing
- can you get ads for majority of the keyword phrases as well as different variations of them?
Copy-writing and marketing is important for online business that’s for sure
How well does advertising work on ‘make money online’ niches products in Clickbank and other affiliate programs?
What kind of ads should I run for those kind of ‘money making’ products ?
Our recommendation is to choose a different niche. Ads in those niches will often get your accounts banned and you’re going up against the most talented marketers in the world. You had better be one of the best in the world if you honestly want to try and compete
As much as needed… Once you know your niche move on!
Should I try getting guest posts to build my DA or focus on publishing lots of content on my own site first?
Most people start blindly with some new niche ideas but dont know that they’re heading for disaster!
There is no secret. There is no ‘Holy Grail’. Niche site selection can be from personal hobbies and low competition niches with high search volume and that serve a pain point or problem.
Is it possible to write content that you don’t know much about? How would you do it without hiring writers?
You should go for it if its something you’re passionate about and have a lot of knowledge about it
Ubbersuggest and Google Trends
Great tip: turning on alerts 🚨 for Google trends! Keep you updated on any new and relevant changes in your niche
RE monetization via ads though:
Wonder if google will identify PLR article as duplicate content?
I’m trying to SEO optimize my site. Is there a recommended limit of keywords to target on main page or other pages?
And what are the steps? You have a lot of niche sites and it’s obvious that you don’t know everything about those niches to write such great articles, but you do write them.
Before you can even start to think about writing an article it is important to do some background research into the niche or specific topic you are going to write about.
Niche selection is has been holding me back. I’ve purchased many sites, but they ended up abandoned!
Always create site on localhost and add at least 10 articles and then buy domain, register usernames, etc. This way you will know if you are REALLY interested in something or just kind of interested. People usually research for unique name that they will give to their upcoming site, unique domain, social pages and what not. That process fails 99% of the time. Your “good feeling” about starting something great fades away and you end up losing money.
