How To Choose A Niche For Your Blog In 3 Simple Steps

Last Update: June 26, 2016

Learning how to choose a niche for your blog is one of the most
important things that you can do to get your blog setup for
longterm growth and success.

The good news is that this can quiet often be done in 3 quick and
easy steps as we shall see.

Step 1 - It is important that you choose a topic that you are
interested in because you either already know a lot about it or
it should be a topic that you have a strong interest in learning

The reason for this is because to be successful blogging you will
need to spend a lot of time immersed in your topic.

This could involve doing keyword research and writing articles
for your niche or it could be doing link building by making forum
or blog post with helpful comments that drive traffic back to
your blog.

This is why it is very important to learn how to choose a niche
for your blog before you make the mistake of choosing a niche
solely for the purpose of making money.

Step 2 - Next because we do live in a money based society, you
should do some market and keyword research to make sure that
there is a large enough buyers market with low enough
competition, for it to be profitable for you.

Step 3 - Look for a way that you can be a unique and valuable
contributor to this niche.

It is important that you identify what will set you and your blog
apart from all of the other blogs currently online.

This could be something as basic as your commitment to high
quality information or your ability to tell things in an
interesting and exciting new way.

By starting with these 3 simple steps you will develop a very
good understanding of how to choose a niche for your blog.

Good Tips, keep them coming.
Simple and clean, that is probably the best way to find a niche. Overthinking can often get you off track, writing about something you're passionate about is easier and you can simply pay more attention to it. Very nice and helpful post especially for beginners and those who are stuck at finding their targeted audience.

Once you decide your niche, make sure it is not too broad but don't make it a micro niche either. Thank you, John, great post.

Yes I think it is important to choose the right niche but it even more important to make sure you monetise it. Otherwise it will be just a hobby. Cheers Kev
