You want to start a blog and have a list of niches for blogging in front of you but are not able to make a choice.

You feel lost and confused.

It has been over 2 weeks that you are doing research and you are feeling overwhelmed and unable to decide which blog niche you should choose.

Sounds familiar?

If you are nodding your head, I completely understand.

I have been there. That feeling, I know it very well.

Trying to decide which niche is best for you is indeed a difficult task. I personally think it’s the most challenging step to take when you are about to start your own blog.

No matter how difficult it is, I am sure with this list, you will have an idea about the niche that is most suitable for you, and you will be excited to start your new journey of creating the perfect blog for you.

First, let’s discuss what a blog niche is.

A blog niche is the main topic or subject that you’ll write about in your blog. Or let’s put it like this: ‘what’s your blog about’?

Deciding on your niche is the first most crucial factor that determines the success (or failure) of your blog.

Before we start, let’s elaborate on some crucial things that will help you have a better understanding of the importance of niche selection and success.

Shall we?

First, what makes a great blogger? Do you know?

Its Determination, Discipline, Passion, and the desire to help people.

Without those, it will be difficult for you to create a profitable blog. If you have only one thing in your mind (That is to make money), then I doubt you will ever make it in this competitive market.

Why is that so?

People who will visit your blog will only be interested in things that will help them. They won’t be interested in your personal problems, nor will they buy anything from you if you are not helping them.

Does that make sense?

Therefore, your main goal should be to solve people’s problems or help them find solutions to their problems.

That being said, let’s see which blog niches are the most profitable.

 

What are the most profitable niches for blogging?

In some niches, you can make a decent amount of money, these niches don’t have a lot of competition, and it will be easier to get traffic.

Some niches are very competitive, where you can earn a massive amount of money if you can get targeted traffic.

So what are the most evergreen and profitable niches?

The three most evergreen and competitive niches are:

  • Health/Wellness/Beauty
  • Make money/Investing/Business opportunities.
  • Relationship/Dating

Now, what blog niche you will choose depends entirely on your final goal.

If you are blogging for fun or just to get some side income, then I will advise you to choose a niche that you are passionate about.

But if you want to build a successful blog that will help you earn a full-time income, then you should choose a profitable niche.

Your topic should have a broad audience, and these people should spend money on things related to that topic.

The above niches mentioned are the perfect example. But there are also profitable niches where there is less competition and where you can make a decent amount of income.

We will elaborate on that below.

Before we get started, let’s discuss one last thing that I think is important for you to know.

 

Should you choose 1 niche or multiple niches?

When you decide to pick up a niche, it might be tempting to write about another niche or broader topics. I completely understand.

I was just the same when I was trying to figure out my perfect niche.

For example, when deciding to create this blog (which is about helping people to escape 9-5 and build their own business online), I was tempted to write about self-development also.

I thought it will help people to improve their personal life as well. I wonder how I came up with this dumb idea.

When you are new to blogging, it will be challenging to build authority for your blog. Google must first understand what your blog is all about before you start to get targeted traffic from it.

So, my advice will be to focus only on one niche. Then, when you have built enough authority, you can move to another niche.

I hope this will help you make a better decision while you are choosing your perfect niche.

In this list, I will only discuss the niches that have a better chance for long term success.

Now, let’s dive.
