Are you looking for a profitable niche idea to start blogging? I have ten niche blog ideas waiting for you to fill! Literally thousands of blogs are being created daily, but only a handful of them get to last longer than three months. Why? Because they picked the wrong niche!
Now, if you have the perfect niche, profitable and has an audience waiting, everything will be smooth-sailing. Well, expect you’ll have to write tons of articles. But, hey, once you get your blog rolling, there’s no stopping!
So, are you ready to build a niche blog?
1. Smartwatches and other Wearable Tech
Smartwatches are popping in more often lately. People are buying these stuff like there’s no tomorrow. And rightly so, with it’s popularity, these little devices can actually help improve people’s daily lives!
In fact, scratch just writing about smartwatches. Write about devices that people can wear.
2. Mobile Marketing
The dawn of the mobile web and smart devices have given way to a new niche: mobile marketing. Create a blog that revolves around how anything mobile can be marketed. Answer questions like “how can I market my smartphone app?” or “what about mobile advertisements?”
3. Clean Technology
With the current world climate, people all over the globe are looking for little ways to help reduce pollution. With that growing awareness, people are starting to do more research about clean technologies they can use on their day to day lives. Talk about windmills, solar panels, hybrid or electric cars, and the latest development on green technology.
4. Web Design and Development
More and more people are jumping on the wagon of web design and development. There are students, hobbyists, and professionals who are shifting careers or enrolling themselves on web design and development courses. If you are one of them, or if you have some knowledge about web technology, you might want to consider building a web design and development blog that provides neat resources, tips, and tricks for beginners. This niche has been on the market for several years now and it is still growing, since the demand is high.
Like, seriously. This is so meta, but bear with me. The days when people just want to vent their frustration through blogging is gone. Blogging has become one of the primary source of information for people. Many people are always connected wherever they are, and as a meta-blogger, your goal is to help other blogs reach out to their audience by giving tips on how to market their blog, how to earn by blogging, and basically what I’m doing on this blog.
6. Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies
In case you have been hiding on your cave since three years ago, cryptocurrencies are on the rise, especially Bitcoin. It doesn’t matter whether these currencies are unstable. They are making news, and that’s what you want to hop on to. Start a news blog about cryptocurrencies. Help people make educated decisions. Give them the news they both want and don’t want to hear.
7. Self-Help, Lifehacks
“How to” type of blogs are gaining momentum with the help of social media. If you have a lot of things to contribute to the daily lives of your audience, then you are in for a great roll. Provide easy-to-do tips and tricks that will increase the quality of life of your audience.
8. Appeal to Emotion
Have you seen those blogs shared around on Facebook and Twitter? With headlines like “this touching reunion between X and Y will surely make you cry”? The future is looking grim and people want to uplift their spirits. Leverage on this. Start a blog that focuses mainly on happy stories.
Freelancing and home-based jobs are now gaining momentum, but people don’t know where to begin. If you can guide people how to transition from being employed full-time into becoming a freelancer (whether it’s freelance writing, web design, development, marketing, admin roles, etc), then you just found yourself a really great niche to write about.
10. Online Education
Let’s admit it, most of the things you can learn at school are freely available on the internet. You can learn how to speak Japanese, how to cook, how to build Flappy Bird, how to build an entire house, even how to download a car. Literally thousands upon thousands of things you can learn online. This is a growing niche, since people are looking for alternatives. And it’s real education too.
