Is Make Money Online (MMO) Not A Good Niche for Beginners?
Last Update: Jun 29, 2018
Very controversial question, isn’t it? First of all, there’s no such thing as a bad niche. Every niche or a sub-niche has its own potential audience, and if you follow your passion, you’ll discover ways to monetising your blog. It’s as simple as that. Or is it?
There are the ever-popular mainstream niches such as health, finance, lifestyle, fashion, travel, etc. with a huge audience and hence it is not surprising that many successful blogs are there in these niches. There are many people who are doing extremely well and making a killing in these niches.
The Make Money Online (MMO) niche remains hugely popular and is usually considered an evergreen one. It is also undoubtedly one of the most profitable as well. MMO is a blanket term to cover all sub-niches like affiliate marketing, social media, WordPress, web hosting, content marketing, SEO, blogging, etc. Being profitable, many people – experienced as well as newbies – jump on to this bandwagon in hordes and you see new websites and blogs popping out in the MMO niche every day. Needless to say, it’s a highly competitive niche and bloggers are constantly vying for a place in the first page of search engine results page under various keywords or search terms. Yes, it’s a busy niche and the countless number of internet marketing forums are a testimony to its popularity.
Coming back to the question whether a beginner should enter the MMO niche or not, it is ultimately up to the individual to decide. Blogging is a serious business and much of your time and energy would be directed towards creating good content for your audience. You do not want yourself to be caught wondering, say one year down the line, if indeed the MMO niche you had chosen was a mistake or not and if a less-competitive (and yet popular) mainstream niche that you are passionate about would have been better for you. It certainly pays to understand a few things before taking the plunge.
- MMO niche is highly competitive and the audience is much pickier than in other niches.
- Many online scams happen in this niche.
- Being highly competitive, you have to be on your toes always to be visible.
- Too many strategies required to be in the game.
- It takes a lot of time to build up an authority and trust.
- More competition means more pressure to create relevant content consistently.
- People in the MMO niche tend to be more loud about their success and the “strategies” followed and coupled with the many scams happening, people are usually suspicious to take the bait.
Just because there are people making money online does not mean you have to enter the MMO niche with no experience at all. What’s the use of opting for a niche that you yourself are not sure about? Let' be honest. Isn’t it awkward telling people how to make money online when you yourself don’t know how to do it? Don’t you think it makes sense to dig a little deeper to find your moorings in a niche that you are truly passionate about?
The reality is that most of us do have a specific interest that we really, really are passionate about. Generally, most of us have a passing interest in different activities. Can we scale up this passing interest to something we can blog about? With a little determination and effort, I think we can. But one could argue that we can cultivate our interest in the MMO niche if we are sincere with our efforts. True. Only it is more competitive compared to other niches. Over to you now.
