Choosing The Right Niche
Lesson 13 Module 2
By now you probably have a few ideas on what you want to start a blog about. But before you start building your blog, answer these important questions first.
1. DO YOU ACTUALLY LIKE THIS TOPIC?
Blogger burnout is a real thing. The best way to avoid quitting on your blog is to find something you would enjoy blogging about.
2. DO YOU KNOW A LOT ABOUT THIS TOPIC?
Ideally you would be able to share both your knowledge and experience on this topic.
3. IS THIS NICHE POPULAR ENOUGH?
It's so much easier to make money blogging when you choose a tried and true niche that's popular. By choosing a popular niche you'll ensure there's a large pool of traffic available.
While there's nothing inherently wrong with niching down, it's better to do that later. At first, you want to start with a broader niche. Write some content, see what you're good at, see what people like. Based on the results you can niche down later.
4. DOES YOUR NICHE TAKE PEOPLE THROUGH A TRANSFORMATION?
Transformations make money. The bigger the transformation, the more money you can make. Choose a niche that can help someone improve their life.
5. ARE THERE MANY SUCCESSFUL BLOGGERS IN THIS NICHE?
Do a search for other bloggers in this niche. If there's a lot of them, that's a good sign this is a profitable niche.
6. CAN YOU THINK OF A PRODUCT YOU CAN CREATE?
The holy grail of passive online income is creating and selling your own digital products. While it's certainly too early to create a product, it's not too early to come up with product ideas.
