Are you starting your first blog and do no know what niche to get into? This is a common problem for people who think they need to select the best niche based on how much money they will.
You can make money in any niche as I will talk about later in this article. Maybe we should define what a niche is before we talk about making money.
1. One definition according to Urban Dictionary is “An area of the market specializing in one type of product or service”.
2. Urban Dictionary also says a niche is “A position or activity that particularly suits somebody’s talents and personality or that somebody can make his or her own”.
When finding a good niche you might consider an area of expertise you already have. This would fall good in definition #2.
I can also say start in a niche you enjoy or have a passion for. You will like it better and the content you create will reflect that.
So, let’s start with a niche you have knowledge in and already enjoy.
Start With What You Know
This will take a lot of the guess work out of finding a good niche which is hard for most newbies. When you start a blog in a niche you already know and understand it is very easy to get your blog off the ground.
Just think about the problems associated with your niche and write about them. Don’t worry about anything other then putting down your thoughts at this point.
I personally think you should blog about problems your readers have and offer solutions to them. Don’t worry about things like keyword selection, keyword density, article length, getting backlinks, or ranking on Google.
For now just ask the questions people in your niche have and answer them in as much detail as you can. This will give you some really good content.
Why on these 3?
Most new bloggers are overwhelmed with everything that goes into blogging. I think you should focus on getting 20 posts of high quality content and less on social marketing when you first launch your blog.
However, as you build your blog out you want people to find it. Some of your visitors will come from Google who will start to rank you in their organic results for the keywords people are searching for.
The next step is to get social and help people find you. You can do this in 5 minutes once you have accounts set up on Google Plus, Facebook, and Twitter.
If you want to expand beyond these 3 make sure you have the time to do it without sacrificing on content creation.
This is the thing to do when getting started in your niche. How are you going to make money?
If you do not have a product or service in mind join Google Adsense.
They will sell the ads for you. When people click on the ads you make money.
The great thing about Adsense is Google has ad customers in every niche so you do not have to worry about whether you will have good ads for people to click on.
That is an important point and makes it easy to start a blog in your niche!
A lot has been written about Google Adsense, but let me give you 3 main tips.
1. Keep your 3 ads above the fold on a page where people will see them.
2. Start with the sizes and colors Google recommends.
3. Build a keyword list and start targeting them.
The real key to making money with Adsense is to rank in the organic results for hundreds or even thousands of keyword phrases. This takes time, but when you are getting traffic from more keywords your visitors will increase and so will the number of clicks you get.
To summarize getting started in a niche is easy when you start in one you already have knowledge in or a passion for. Focus on answering questions in your first 20 articles. Make these real high quality articles. Once you have some good content add Google Adsense ads and you will start to make money in your niche.
