5. Blogging

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.

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.

Freelancing and home-based jobs are now gaining momentum, but people don’t know where to begin.

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.

    Hi, Thank you for the nice post!

    I’ve been in and out of the blogging scene since 2009. I had a total of 5 and I had to delete all of them because I can’t seem to find the niche that I embody. How did you find yours? And What’s your advise? My financial goal for blogging is a passive income of P50,000 or $1,000. Is this feasible for the Philippine setting? Another reason, why I think I haven’t had my success in blogging because I don’t mentors to guide me through the process.(I apologize. I’m in a hurry, I wasn’t able to read details of you and your blog) GTG!

      Hi Armand, there is actually no trick. It all boils down to keyword research. I use Market Samurai for finding profitable keywords, but you can also use Google’s Keyword Planner to find: 1. a primary keyword with a high number of monthly searches (personally, 3,000/mo is good for me), 2. low competition (so you can ‘own’ the niche), 3. relevant keywords with high monthly searches.

      $1000/mo for niche blogging is definitely possible, and I should also add that earnings can be more than that. It’s not just all about displaying advertisements and hoping someone clicks on them. You can also use your blog(s) to promote someone else’s products for a cut (affiliate marketing). Lots of ways to earn. But first you’ll need good traffic, which is where keyword research enters!
