? How To Find a Niche For Your Blog [With Examples]

How to find awesome niches every single time in five simple steps for your blog or website what’s up everyone This is Greg Kononenko the Caffeinated Blogger And today we’re going to be talking about how you can quickly and easily find some amazing niches On my channel I put out regular videos about making money online traffic and blogging So make sure to subscribe to my channel and also don’t forget to hit that notification Button to get notifications about my new videos as soon as I upload them The other thing you can do if you like is grab my free blogging course, the link is also in the video description below Alright now let’s go and find some niches Alright so you’re probably sitting there thinking well
I really need to find this awesome niche because I don’t want to spend Months or even years building up a website or building up a blog that’s just not going to go anywhere Or that’s not going to make me money right and look I’ve been there I actually have myself created over 150 websites And I’ve also out sourced and paid a lot of people to create a lot of websites I used to Have a little army of min blogs and I know all about the pain of actually going through and thinking listen I really really need to make sure that I’ve got an amazing niche. Okay, so I know how you feel I know way coming from I’ve actually developed a process that works Pretty much every single time and I want to share it with you guys So this is what we’re going to be doing So we’re gonna make start out with a larger list of niches and niche ideas and I want you guys to kind of follow along with me or maybe watch this and then go back to the start of the Video and then follow along with me as you can we go through every single step Alright, so but overall, they brought us we’re gonna make a large list of several niches Then we’re gonna filter that list using a few methods that I’m going to show you guys and then based on that we’re gonna come Up with a few great niches so we start out with a lot and then we kind of gradually filter them down, right and When we filter it down You should hopefully end up with a niche that you bite happy with that is profitable and then you can operate in for a long time so the first step is of course to Start creating your list. Okay, and I’ve got a nice template here for you guys as well You can download this template in the description below this video So to create the list the first thing that you should start with is, what are the sides? You know think of the sides that you are already following and I’m going to do this with you as I’m going along so you need to think of our sites write them down and then you can use my template or just create a similar template yourself if you want in Google Docs or in you know in a spreadsheet whatever you want So what are the websites that I’m already following and that I really like so I’m gonna start writing them down So I like guitar sites because I play guitar. Okay, and The particular sub topics are guitar lessons So I’m gonna write that down Then the other websites that I’m already following You know blogging Websites and subtopic. Well, or we can call it make money online niche and in particular Subtopic is blogging Okay, the other websites that I am already following an activity reading are Sports so soccer or football tip anywhere in the world you are Alright so let’s go ahead and put in a few more so the other thing is I’m interested in News so in particular the subtopic is Australian current events Also children, so Raising a child or Raising a daughter. I’ve got a delicious almost six So these could be some of the other things that I could potentially start a blog about So these gives you a pretty good list you get the idea, you know Just write down everything that you’re possibly interested in perhaps you’re interested in gardening Perhaps you’re interested in fishing Just write them down and try to outline any subtopics if there’s more than one set for example in a guitar on the guitar lessons There could also be something like get reviews reviews of different guitars under MMR there could also be For example traffic or WordPress Ok, so just write them all down break them down by subtopics try to create a nice list So let’s continue. So what you would do then is Adding some additional proven issues. So what I’m talking about is there are three Nicias you may have heard of them They’re sort of the three golden issues that are already proven to be successful. It’s health exercise Relationships including dating and money and Finance if you have a blog or any kind of websites within one of those three niches You’re pretty much guaranteed to make money as long as you can get the traffic to it. You guaranteed to make money So let’s think through as a second step Let’s think through these three golden issues and try to write down things within those niches that were actually interested in So within health personally I’m interested in body building Sports supplements working out Okay, you probably can’t tell from look at me on the video, but I did go to the gym from time to time So I’m quite interested in in those topics and I read a bit about it so, you know, I have a natural interest in it from the Relationships perspective. I’ve been look to be honest. Personally. I’m not really very interested in that because of my marital situation I’ve been married for 11 years, but also just never really been interested in This as a topic but you know, you might be there are a lot of people that actually are quite passionate about this so if it does apply to you, you know just write out things like they have dating or You know Maybe divorce like some people actually start Divorce related blogs that will save your marriage blogs after they’ve been through that kind of situation personally So everyone’s situation could be different This could be applicable to you just write those out if you think that they are applicable to you so I’m gonna get rid of relationships but you get the idea and then next for money and finance niche I actually am quite passionate about the finance niche weirdly I am I worked at largest rallyin bank here for 12 years and because of that, you know I do have a bit of interest towards morons and lending as well as property investment, so I’m gonna write those out so The next thing that we’ll want to do is we’ll want to Scan niche lists Okay And the reason why I’ve called that step 2.5 is because I believe if you are struggling with finding a niche You shouldn’t just go off and find a completely random niche Like if you know if I wanted to start a blog about goldfish, for example Or if I wanted to start a blog about some I don’t know for example makeup, you know, like women’s hair or makeup It’s just a completely random niche and there is no need no real reason for me to go into it Because there are so many other great niches that I am actually interested in but Still I wanted to include this because for some of you it might Come in handy having a memory job. So you could just type in something like on my side actually on caffeinated blogger sites I’ve got a blog post. So if you you can type that in caffeinated blog initially so you can check that out You can also just type in things like list of Nicias Into Google and just look at the results that come up and basically scan through and see if any of these tickle your fancy, so For example, you might look at you know weight loss sub-niches, okay? Diets various vegetarian diets intermittent fasting there’s exercises. There’s nutritional health there are supplements, you know, but there could be things like Okay, perhaps shooting or outdoor recreation like camping and hunting and Fishing and various other similan issues. So if you you know look for those if you feel like you’re a bit short go ahead and look at the list of niches and Write down any that appeal to you so you can just you know write them in here okay, so with that we’re gonna move on so now that we’ve got our Lists, what we want to do is now we start the filtering process So we’ve got our a big laundry list Now we go ahead and we start using this template to start actually filtering out the niches that we don’t feel particularly passionate Or that are unsuitable for one reason or another so the first thing we’re going to look at is can you create content for these niches content is important because either you yourself will have to write our blog post with content or you’re gonna have to hire someone but even if you hire someone You still need to tell that person. Hey, listen, you need to make a blog post about Five best fishing rods or about five best supplements or something like that. You still need to kind of deal with it, right? and If you really have no clue or you’re just not really interested in creating content and that needs you’re dealing with the content in that Niche, it might not be a good idea for you to be in that nature. So let’s go through this so guitar and guitar lessons Can I create content know because my guitar playing is honestly not good enough And I mean, I don’t think I’ll ever get good enough quickly enough to be able to create content in that niche Okay, so that’s a no guitar reviews. However, yes, I could you don’t even need to really have a guitar You don’t need to have something in front of you to review it You can still create content based on other people’s information that you find online. So yes, I could create content about guitar reviews for sure Okay, now the next niche the MMO the dreaded Emma Mohnish so Blogging traffic and WordPress. Can I create content? Well personally, this is a very strong Yes for me for all of them because I have been doing this for 11 12 12 years now and You know I’ve Sort of had a lot of exposure and I’ve got a lot that I can talk about and I just have a quite a good Knowledge of this topic, but guys, very important to note here. You don’t need to be an expert You don’t need to be successful at a particular thing in order to start a blog in that Topic, okay Let me give you an example blogging so even if you’re a brand new person who is starting a blog about Blogging or about traffic or about WordPress if you feel passionate about it You can still create content in that topic. Okay, so there’s a distinction for example You can’t really create a lot of content Related to guitar lessons because you really need to be able to sit in front of people and play the guitar But for blogging you take an angle of just reviewing things. So as an example, you could create a blog about What are the 10 best WordPress themes or 10 best Blogging courses you can still kind of produce content on that topic so Hopefully you get what I mean? you don’t need to be making a hundred thousand a year or a hundred thousand a month from blogging in order to be able to Create a blog about blogging. Okay, hopefully that makes sense So next sports soccer and football. Can I create content to be honest? I think that it would just be I’m not religious that I love reading about it But I wouldn’t really want to make content. So for me to know for you, it could be different News again same thing like reading the news But I don’t think I want to run a news site children raising a child the raising your daughter well Actually, I want to create content, you know, I would be interested in writing about this. So I would say that this is a yes So, I’m just gonna do I’m gonna skip through this a bit quicker So for bodybuilding a spot supplements, I would say yes because I’m interested in those finance and lending and property investments Probably yes, I would say okay, so you can see that a few of our ideas have been filtered out already Which is a good thing. That’s the point of the exercise. So let’s move on to the next step. So step four Can you make products now? the reason why I Recommend choosing a niche in which you can create content is because it will generate a lot more profits for you down the road Okay, so let me give you an example let’s say you have Your own course about weight loss, okay if you have your own course about weight loss then you can sell it on your site for example for $50.00 and If someone buys it then you make the whole of that $50.00 Okay, the second thing that a lot of people do and that you will probably do on your blog as well is affiliate marketing When you recommend other great products to your buyers, and let’s say you Recommend my product and my product is sold for $50 when you refer someone to me and they buy my product I might pay you a commission. Let’s say I pay a 50% Commission. Okay, so I collect $50 I pay you 25 you as a blogger Make $25. However, if this was your own product, then you would be making the full purchase price. Therefore $50 Additionally you could also hire affiliates you could get others to promote your product so it’s just a lot more ways that you can make money and you can make a lot more money if you can create your own products in the particular mission, so that’s the reason so Can I create products in the? guitar reviews sort of niche Well, to be honest, I think that it’s not applicable. You know, there is if I’m I can’t make my own guitars You know if I’m making my I can’t really create my own lesson I can’t think of another way that I could monetize the guitar niche. So let’s say my own products and the guitar niche probably no Blogging traffic and WordPress. Well, actually I can In the blogging space. I’ve got a blogging course already and Even if you are brand new into blogging space In six to twelve months down the track once your blog is successful You can create a simple course and you can sell it to your readers You know same about traffic once you’ve got a case that you can actually sell it to people About WordPress. Well, yes, you can create your own WordPress themes and your own WordPress plugins, and you can sell them to people What’s the next one children? Well, yes, you can actually create products in those as well and so you could create guides for example information guides about how to raise a daughter how to get how to get children to sleep I know that those are fairly Successful products and it doesn’t really, you know, you don’t need to be anything special. You can just write about your own experience So for me personally, yes, I could I could create a product in those niches Regarding bodybuilding sports supplements and working out. I would say this is probably a no simply because I’m not really a big huge guy that could make it onto the cover of You know a bodybuilding kind of magazine. I’m not really I don’t think I’ll ever get muscular enough to be able to do that So let’s say that this is probably a no for me. It could be once again. It could be different for you guys and Finance loans and lending and property investments. Well, I would say that not really simply because I’m not gonna sell my own loans I’m not to You know go into property investments or sell my own courses and property investments. So for me, this is probably a no. Okay, so I hope that this makes sense just go through whatever issues you record it and tried to find out whether you are able to make your own products in those niches or not the next thing is You would go through and you would research other successful sites. Okay, I there are other successful sites doing these how are they actually monetizing and You would mark it down for each of the niches. So let me give you an example So what we’re looking at here is we’re looking for other smaller style websites Okay that I’m not huge sites that are not sites that How should I say it that I run by you know? Dozens of people you basically want to see what other sites that are similar to, you know One-man operation to men operation family type operation websites, and how are they monetizing their blogs? so let’s just say I go with the for something different I’ll go with children raising a child raising a daughter and What you might do is type in some keywords related to that so for example Let’s say how to Make my child sleep And let’s see so health wine is a large website I know that life hack are Let’s see this Alaska sleep. This could be a smaller type website Okay, so looks like this is some kind of a Alaska international company, so this possibly ‘is a larger type site. So you would look at Raising children and honor you today’s parent So you want a blog that looks like, you know, it’s a blog that possibly Is run by one or two people you don’t want anything super massive Okay So, this is good okay, so I’m just gonna go into this category page and see how they’re actually monetizing this so they’ve got all the different points So you need to do a little bit of Investigation here So, let’s see how they monetize this So you can see they’ve got an ad at the top okay, so what I would do is just take this and Record it in here and now let’s say Adsense. Okay, and then let’s see what else we can find out how they’re doing this So there’s an Adsense ad on the right here as well. Are they selling anything on this site? Let’s see Okay, it doesn’t look like they sell anything direct it’s basically just monetized via Adsense okay, so you would what you could do is just click around and Have a look what you can find. So one other thing that I can find here So on their blog posts in general, I don’t see them promoting a lot of other products it’s mainly by the looks of it has just monetized by our Adsense ads and You can tell that it’s Adsense if you mouse over it in the bottom left that says Google Ads services But what I found here is product reviews, so let’s see how they do product reviews Because they could be another thing that you could do Okay, so for example, they’re doing a carseat review, okay, that’s interesting so you could do something like that as well you could push reviews for a car seat and Then as you can see They are they’ve got some links so possibly there there are affiliate links So you would sort of just try to suss out what are they doing is this an affiliate link or not? Where does this get redirected to nuna dot EU? CA en let’s see where these goes Okay, so this looks like this just goes directly to a site So browse around and get an idea on what else are they doing with this? Okay, so then you would complete that with This website and then you would do the same thing with the second website that you find in your niche Okay, your modern family comm so, let’s see how they’re doing. This. What are they doing again? This looks like this is a smaller site because it just says contact Becky. So it’s run by one person This could be something that you know, this could well be you So again, they’re doing ads so I can see ads here if I mouse over I can see the ad here at the bottom Okay There was a bit of a crash into my browser for some reason What else is she doing is she building at least is she selling anything or not? So we just need to Look around and you know have a look at these different things. So I feel it’s what is this affiliate? So maybe she’s got a course which she sells through they feel it. So let’s check that out, too Okay, my books and courses so she’s actually got books and courses well, this is interesting right So if you go store, okay. There you go So she’s got a store and she’s setting these things by the looks of it so I can see here different links potty-train a toddler Well, that’s very interesting so basically this lady’s a blogger and you know A lot of you like me are parents so you could have a blog like this. This is run by one person it’s got the personal branding Becky and there are courses that biggest sells so arguably what you could do is create a similar style website and then you could Buy Becky’s courses and buy a few other people’s courses that are in the same And then create your own course and make it for sale. So that’s a good thing. Okay I’m hoping that you’re following up. I’m actually kind of digging here in real time to see how are these people Monetizing their blogs and I’m recording this. So for Becky what I’m gonna write down is that yes, there is adsense and Owen Owen Forces books So this is what you would need to do with each of these niches So go ahead and do a little bit of research on each of the niches So that you can get a really good idea as to how these people are Monetizing their blogs and once again, very important don’t go for huge websites Try to find those blogs that are run by just one or two people That are smaller style blogs because this is essentially what you’re going to be doing You will never probably you know, get to a stage where you’ve got ten thousand Ten thousand pages ten thousand articles on your blog unless you’ve got a huge team of people so don’t compete with those huge corporate style blogs I tried to find blogs that are you can tell that it’s a smaller style blog and exactly find out exactly how they’re building their sites now the interesting thing as you go through these you will actually find out that for example in the you know some of the other things in the children niche would be selling our products Or in physical products for example coloring books, okay, some others would be selling Amazon Products as a feeling So you will see listings with links to Amazon and whenever someone buys they would Make a percentage of that purchase price and whenever someone buys children related product on Amazon, so you’ll start getting a really good picture I already know from experience that within the blogging WordPress space. For example, there are affiliate programs for themes and plugins You know there could also be some courses as well in it marketing and courses that are so your job at this stage is to go through and do that little bit of research on the Niches that made it through the the initial first few filters and what you’re going to be left with at the end of this exercise Is a really good idea as to how are the other side’s? monetizing this niche now The other component of step 5 is are there other successful sites? so what you need to pay attention to is those sites that you’ve researched have they been running for at least one or two years and Other sites do they appear like they’re making money So if there is regular content that’s been published for the last 2 or 3 years and the sites are not neglected There’s there is still fresh content And you can see some clear way of monetization then it means that this site most likely is is a successful site. Ok Now the next thing the next step If we can call it a step is just for you to remember that look there is no perfect niche There are drawbacks in every niche. So if you feel a little bit torn about a particular niche that’s completely normal You know, I felt very torn about pretty much every niche blog that I’ve started when I went with my travel site I was a little bit torn when I went with the Blog about blogging, you know, I was also a little bit torn. So it’s completely normal for you to feel to one What the aim of this exercise that we’ve just been through is is to minimize your risk of failure or make it Very very close to zero as close to zero as possible Because if you think about it, sometimes people just think I want to start a blog about Goldfish ok, and then they find out that for goldfish. No advice courses about goldfish There are no FT net programs about goldfish and the goldfish Niche itself is is reasonably small maybe yes, there is a way to monetize with You know, it’s recommending some aquarium products or something like that And maybe goldfish are a good niche, you know, I shouldn’t pick on them This is just my example if you pick a niche and you just Go into it without doing any research then your chances of failure or not being able to monetize are actually really really large But if you go through this exercise that we’ve just been through and you’ve got several ways of monetizing so you can create content you can create your own products and You can clearly see that the right affiliate programs that there are own courses that you can sell and that there are other successful sites Doing it you’re basically Minimizing your chance of failure within that particular niche. Hopefully that makes sense Next step last step is just do it. Once you’ve gone through this exercise And once you feel pretty good about particular niche, then stop procrastinating. Just get that blog going because you know ultimately as Much as you can you know I’ve been in a situation where I was thinking about a niche for a month or for two months Should I or should I not start a niche a blog in that particular niche? ultimately, you might know if for sure until you actually try this and that’s how that’s the only way that you can find out whether it’s going to be successful or not if you’ve been through every single Step that. We’ve just been through you really should minimize your chances of failure So that’s pretty much it guys Thank you so much for watching If you like this video and you want to get notified about my future videos then please make sure that you click here the subscribe button and Also, click the little notification bell icon to make sure that you get notifications about my future videos as soon as I upload them Thank you so much for watching.
