117 Niches You Can Blog About
One of the things I get asked about more than anything is; how do I pick a niche or what niche should I pick?
The choices are nearly endless. If you can think of it, or are into it, there is likely a whole group of other people who are thinking about it, or are into it too.
Below I’ve put together a very short list of just a few of the things you can build your blog around.
This is not a complete list of blogging niches or topics by any means. This truly just represents a fraction of what you could pick from.
What makes a great blogging niche?
There are two things you want to balance when picking your website topic and they are; passion and profits.
You need to have a passion for your niche so that you truly enjoy what you do.
If you have an existing business, then you may have already made your decision. Even if you already have your niche, look through the list and something might spark your creativity.
For new and existing businesses there is nothing better than blog funneling which we will discuss in other articles. But, suffice in saying that blogging is the best business there is.
You must pick a blog niche that’s profitable. Otherwise you don’t have a business, you have a hobby.
You want to pick a niche that people are excited about, where they spend money and that’s evergreen (meaning, doesn’t go out of style).
As examples: people spend tons of money on golf, beauty, boating, travel and many more. Be sure that there are people who want information and that are willing to pay for it.
To be evergreen really means that your niche will last for decades or longer. Examples would be: recipes – people eat, end of story. Sports – people have played them since before we could write about them. Fashion – people will likely always care about what they wear.
I’m sure you get the point.
So, make sure you balance these, and you should do well.
You need to make money at it, but, you need to love it too.
What Is The Best Niche To Pick For Your Blogging Business?
What you really want to consider are the following:
Yes, you need to make a profit as we discussed above, but, how are you going to make your money?
A). The Advertising Model.
If your plan is to make it from Google adsense or other advertisers paying you, then you’re going to need a lot of traffic volume to make any real money due to Googles blending.
Blending refers to them not just showing ads that relate to your keyword, but also showing ads that are follow ads.
Follow ads are when you go to a couple sites on shoes and then go to a car site or a florist and wonder why there are shoe ads similar to the site(s) you were just on, that’s because Google tracks you and shows them to you.
So, if your niche has super high CPC (cost Per Click) ads and you want to get a few dollars per click you’ll have to disable Google from showing ads not related to your keywords.
However, even then, you’re not building a real business. You’re not building a list, Google and other ad agencies control your destiny and income.
I can tell you from the experience of having over 300 niche adsense sites up at one time that this is something you may wish to reconsider. It’s a harder road than you might imagine.
B). The Affiliate Model.
Yes, you can make decent money selling other peoples (companies) products, but you’re not building YOUR business.
In essence you’re sending your best customers to them (your proven buyers) for free. They give you a percentage of the sale, but they keep that buyer on their list for life, while you are left looking for more traffic.
It’s not the best business model.
Think of it this way, who do you suppose makes more money in the end, the affiliate or the product owner who can afford to pay the affiliate?
You guessed it, the product owner.
C). Build A Real Business With Your Own Products
In this model you create a blog funnel as I’ll teach you in my upcoming course that should be out soon.
The basics of which are;
You build your list, send them to your blog, solve their problems with products that you have created like my Traffic Course and blog Funneling Course.
Your solutions must be so valuable that their cost is meaningless. They are exactly what your niche needs to achieve their hopes and dreams, so what they cost is not what matters to your subscribers, but, the fact that they can now, finally accomplish their goals.
You set this sales process up in a funnel system that doesn’t piss people off. There are no up sells, down sells, cross sells or side sells. Just pure honest solutions to their biggest needs.
Now, if you like, you’re the one hiring affiliates.
You’re the one with the amazing buyers list.
And you’re the one making all the money.
Think of the benefits:
You control your destiny, not someone else who can pull your ads or cancel their product right after you start making a little money.
You make all the money on your product sales, not just the affiliate commission.
You’re the one building the super solid email list not giving them your best customers to build theirs.
You can now hire affiliates to work for you for free and all you do is pay them a commission when they make you money.
You now have a business that you can will on to your children or sell for a huge profit when you’re ready to retire.
I’m sure you see the point. You are in control instead of being controlled.
Blog Funneling is the best business in the world.
Simple; you get to work only on the exact topic (niche) that you love.
When you go out and get a job, how many times are you really going to love it?
According to medical daily dot com(1) 70% of Americans hate their jobs.
Think about that for a moment. You wake up knowing that you’re going to spend the majority of your day preparing for, commuting to and from and working at a job you hate.
Why would you put yourself through that every day? WHY?
You don’t have to.
You can start discovering how to get traffic (arguably the most important part) and as your doing that you can be building your very own blog funnel, that will become your business that can support you for a lifetime.
The best thing is; you get to build your business in the exact niche that you love!
You get to wake up each day with no commute, no stress, no boss, great money, stay home and do what you love.
Unless you win the lottery, what could be better than that?
It’s Time To Pick Your Blog Niche
Here’s what you want to do.
Sit back and dream about your favorite things to do and make a list of them.
Then make sure they meet the following criteria.
A). There is a hungry audience of people who love this niche, who have problems in it that you can solve.
As an example: you are in the puppy niche. Everyone who has a puppy loves them. They need to know how to train them, that is their problem you can solve.
B). The niche is evergreen. This means that; it is not something that will be gone in your lifetime.
Example: if you build a blog about a particular star, they could die, or have a scandal and fall from grace.
If you blog about pets, people have had pets for 100’s of thousands of years and there is NO sign that they will stop.
A blog about a particular celebrity is not evergreen, blogging about pets is evergreen.
C). They must be willing to spend money.
There are some niches where people just don’t spend money for courses, lessons etc.
However, their are niches where people spend a ton on money.
Think about how much money people spend on beauty, cars, boats, golf, travel, real estate etc.
They have NO problem buying your information products if it will solve their problems, just like you don’t have a problem spending a little when someone solves your biggest problems either.
