Blogging can be quite a good little money earner. In fact, some people make a successful full-time income from blogging alone. For the most part, it takes time and while it’s true that your stats aren’t everything, and that an engaged audience is more useful than a huge audience who don’t care, having a lot of viewers does help.
Having a strong niche is one of the best ways to pull in more viewers, and not just that, you’ll also be getting viewers who have got a genuine interest in what you’ve got to say and who will keep coming back for more. Being an expert in your niche and blogging with a strong voice, knowledge and authority is the best way to pull in the readers and the money. However, some niches are better for this than others. Mommy blogger’s for example. There are so many now, that to stand out from the crowd, you need to be doing something different. Whereas those with a more specific niche, with less competition, often get offers which can earn them money much sooner.
Here’s a look at some of the best niches to blog in if you want to earn big, and quickly.
Everyone is looking for ways to make money, to save money or for ideas of what to do with their money. Blogging about ways to make or save money can be a high earner simply because of the amount of interest. If you can provide people with genuinely useful advice, you could do very well in the niche. Brands are also keen to work with money bloggers as it shows they care about their customer’s finances.
Health and Fitness
Health and fitness is another popular niche because it’s a popular topic. There’s an awful lot of advice out there, and people can easily be left overwhelmed or confused. You can use this to your advantage and become someone people trust and feel they can go to for advice.
Food can be a tough one to break into, as there are so many food blogs and recipe sharing services out there. Even going offline, there are recipe books on sale in every store. But, if you do, it can be a big earner. Food bloggers make money by working with restaurants and food suppliers and tend to do well through affiliate marketing.
Green bloggers can do very well because saving the environment is something most of us are keen to do. But, again, there’s a lot of conflicting advice out there. People want to help; they just don’t know how. People don’t even realise how much they can recycle. Did you know that you can recycle scrap aluminium? Tell the world! If you are going to blog about the environment, just make sure that you go with a green web host.
A blog, about blogging? Yep! Blogs start up all of the time, but most give up within the first year. Bloggers who offer advice to new bloggers can earn well through affiliate marketing and selling their courses.
To be successful, you need to blog about your passion. So, think about what you love and go for it.
