How do I choose a niche? And how do I build an online business?
In the recent few days there was an increasing trend that I noticed from newbies requesting assistance with choosing a niche for their site. For me the response was alarming, because everyone just gave advice along the lines of: "choose a niche according to what you know a lot about and can make money from."
Now honestly speaking, that advice is not so bad. It helped me because I knew immediately what I needed to make my niche (after I did a little introspection). But what about giving that advice to someone who is totally new to everything online?
What about the one who is asking for help on choosing a niche because his knowledge of anything is not very much. Okay, maybe that is a little absurd for some people, but for others it might be a reality.
Learning to ask the right question
I wanted to write this blog today to answer the simple question posted by many newbies (and many established WA'ers who are still struggling with their niche).
Instead of asking: "how do I choose a niche?", maybe ask: "what business should I start?"
Why do I recommend you ask this instead? Because when you choose a niche, you build a website, you write content, you devise strategies to monetize your website, you actively become involved in marketing your website and generating traffic, you attract more people to your site and become an influencer in your niche.
Now all of this that you do after you have chosen a niche, is actually building a business.
So rather ask yourself what business can I do that can give me an income online?
If you are just starting out and hear about choosing a niche, really take some time to think about it because your choice of niche will become your business.
Now luckily with Wealthy Affiliate you have multiple opportunities to choose a niche (you can build up to 50 sites if you are a Premium member). So choosing a niche and failing at it is really okay.
We have all heard the saying: practice makes perfect. So if at first you don't succeed, then try and try again.
PS. Look out for more blogs I will be posting on a few business ideas to get you all going.
