Selecting the best niche for blogging is the most important thing that can make or break your blogging career.

Yes. That’s right.

You cannot just write (and publish) anything to achieve the success in your blogging career that you have dreamed for.

In this 3-Step Ultimate Guide, I shall be sharing some of my proven tricks to find the best niche for blogging in 2017.

Followed properly, it should not take you more than 120 minutes to find at least 3 good niches for starting your blogging journey in 2017.

So, let’s get started.

Step-1: Write Down Your Passion and Interests:

In this step, all you need to make a Master List of all the topics that you are passionate and interested about.

Do not limit yourself.

Open your mind on a piece of paper.

In this step, your target is to write down all such topics which you are passionate enough about within 10-15 minutes.

I think you would be able come up with at least 10 to 20 topics easily at this brainstorming session.

For example, if I were to start a blog today, I would be interested in the following topics:

  • Self-Development
  • Fitness
  • Professional Grooming
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Etiquette, etc.

 

In this step, you do not have to think much.

Just write down all the ideas or topics which come in your mind within the first 10 to 15 minutes of your brainstorming session.

Step-2: Filter Your Master List Out With Profitability:

This is the step which separates Professional Bloggers from the Amateur Ones.

Professional Bloggers often earn their living by monetizing their passion whereas the Amateur Bloggers generally blog just for their passion.

If you want to be an Amateur Blogger, you can skip this step and go to the Step-3 directly.

However, if you are looking to make a handsome amount of money and ready to treat your blog as one of your most profitable businesses, you must cover this step very carefully.

In this step, you should filter your Master List of Best Niches for Blogging in accordance with their profitability (i.e. their money-making potential).

There are hundreds (if not thousands) of ways out to determine the money-making potential of a topic for blogging.

However, to keep things simple, I shall be discussing only best 3 of them here.

Advertisement Potential:

The most beginner friendly method to earn a few bucks from your blog is advertisement.

It means that you should determine the Advertisement Potential of each and every topic from your Master List, one-by-one.

You should check the CPC Potential (like Google AdSense) and Direct Advertisement Earning Potential (like BuySellAds) for your topic.

Affiliate Marketing Income Potential:

Most of the A-List Bloggers are earning huge from their Blogging Businesses by leveraging a few Affiliate Marketing Strategies properly.

There are hundreds of Affiliate Market Places and thousands of the Affiliate Programs all over the blog-sphere.

I am not going to discuss this method here as I have already published a detailed guide to serve that purpose.

Own Products and Services:

This one is my personal favorite method of making money from a blog.

Check if you can publish a few E-Books, Video Courses and Serve A few Clients with the topics of your Master List.

If you can, that will be a real gem for you and your successful blogging career.

Step-3: Sort Out Your List As Per Resource Availability:

If you have gone through the steps discussed above, I am sure you have found a few best niches for blogging, already.

Now in this final step, you should check the resource availability for your topic of blogging.

No matter, how good you are at your subject, you still should do some research work to provide your audience the best of the best information.

Right?

So, it is very important for you to have some great resources ready on your blog topic.
