If you are not targeting the right market then you would end up with the failure of your business.

Blogging is also a business.
Many bloggers have opted blogging as their full-time work and they are earning a hell lot of money.

According to an analysis, almost 42% of newbies fail in blogging due to starting a blog on the wrong niche or without doing any research before choosing a niche.
It is not a piece of cake to choose a niche and start writing upon it.
You have to be very careful during choosing a niche because you are going to invest a hell lot of time and money to grow your blog.
So, thatswhy it is important to choose the right niche before you start writing on it.
If you don’t know how to choose a niche for your blog then keep reading I have explained everything in detail.
But before, let’s quickly have a look at what is a niche?
What is a Niche?
Before diving into how to find a profitable niche lets talk about the niche
If you’re totally newbie then there might be a chance that you did not even know about what is a niche?
According to Wikipedia
Niche blogging is the act of creating a blog with the intent of using it to market to a particular niche market. Niche blogs (also commonly referred to as “niche websites”) may appeal to “geographic areas, a specialty industry, ethnic or age groups, or any other particular group of people.” While it could be argued that every blog is, in some form, a niche blog, the term as it applies to marketing refers to a particular kind of blog.
In simple words, you can say that niche a category of your blog about which you are going to write on your blog or it can be a market which you are going to target.
Some people also take a niche as a specific group of people that you will ultimately be going to target.
A niche can be also segmented into more sub-categories such as sub-niches under the main niche and under that sub-niche there could be also some sub-niches.
Let understand this with an example.
Industry → Health
Niche → Health ⇒ Healthy Diet
Sub-niche → Health ⇒ Healthy Diet ⇒ Keto Diet
Sub-Sub-niche → Health ⇒ Healthy Diet ⇒ Keto Diet ⇒ Keto Diet for beginners
So in the above example, you can see that health is the main industry and then a healthy diet is a niche in the health industry.
And under the healthy diet keto diet is the sub-niche and further keto diet for beginners is the sub-niche under keto diet.
If you start a blog on health niche without specifically targeting any sub-niche then it is going to be very tough for you because being a newbie you cannot outrank an old authority website.
Google is not going to rank your website over the old website if you target the whole industry in your blog.
Therefore, being a newbie I will strongly recommend you to start a sub-sub-niche (micro-niche) blog.
Because by targeting a micro-niche blog you can easily outrank even an old website that is talking about multiple sub-niches.
If you focus on micro-niche then you can drive good quality traffic on your blog.
Traffic that comes on your blog will be highly convertible because you are talking about what your readers are specifically looking for.
Once your blog starts getting tons of traffic and you have a lot of backlinks then, you can start writing on other sub-niches to increase the range of your blog and make your blog a much bigger cash cow.
Now as you have understood what is a niche so let understand the importance of selecting a profitable micro-niche for a new blog.
Importance of Choosing a Profitable Micro-Niche
Attracts Specific Audience
By targeting a micro-niche you can drive targetted audiences on your blog.
If you optimize your blog then Google is going to automatically send the organic traffic on your blog related to your niche.
If your blog will get the specific targetted audience then your blog is going to have a lower bounce rate.
Whereas if you target a broad niche then your blog will have a higher bounce rate because then many readers come on your blog and some of them will immediately click the back button if they will be looking for a specialist to get their problem solved.
Make Your Blog a Cash Cow
As I have said earlier that by targetting a micro-niche you will get quality traffic for your blog.
This not only helps you to reduce your bounce rate but it will also help you to increase your conversion rate.
By targeting micro-niche you only interested audience will land on your website and they are more likely to get converted into sales.
Helps to Concentrate Your Efforts
If you start a blog on the micro-niche then you will work with more concentration.
You will put your efforts in the right direction which helps you to grow your blog faster.
If you choose one micro-niche then you can make a hell lot of money.
If you try to compete in only one specific niche then you can keep on selling the same customers different products and services over time. You do not have to constantly try to attract new customers all the time.
The Attraction of Being a Specialist
By choosing the micro-niche you are going to be a specialist about that niche.
Because once you choose a niche you are going to invert a lot of time on that niche.
You are going to read a hell lot of articles from your competitor to write an awesome article for your blog.
Once you become a specialist then you will see that more people will start engaging with you.
By which you will start getting quality traffic which is specifically looking for what you are talking about in your blog.
Let understand this with the help of an example.
let’s assume that if a person got any kind of skin allergy then he/she would definitely prefer to go to the expert or a specialist rather than his/her general practitioner.
And even if he goes to his general practitioner he will also recommend a specialist to him.
So thatswhy choosing the micro-niche helps a lot become a specialist( Like Neil Patel who is an SEO expert).
Here you can also see that Neil Patel is a specialist in SEO( Search Engine Optimization ) micro-niche of sub-niche blogging and blogging is sub-niche of digital marketing.
Success of the Your Blog
Once you start spending your major time and put effort into a niche.
You will become a specialist in it.
By which you will stand out of the competition and you will start getting recognization in the market.
Once you start getting recognization people will start mentioning you in their blog or they will recommend your service by which you will get more clients and audience.
Once you stand out of the competition and get recognization then your blog will start growing at a very high pace.
Now as you have understood about the importance of choosing the micro-niche for a blog so let’s understand how to choose it.
Steps to choose a profitable blog niche
Check Your Passion
Make a list of niches about which you are passionate you may have done this before and if not then do it.
I am saying to make a list of niche related to your passion because if you start your blog about a niche about which you are not passionate then, you will quit blogging after some time because you will lose interest in it due to not being passionate about it.
If you don’t know about the niche about which you are passionate then let me help you.
Ask yourself some questions as follows:
On which things you spend most of the time?
What kind of magazines you read?
About which things you searching on Google regularly?
Which videos you watch on youtube?
What do you do in your free time?
Your role model belongs to which industry?
Whats topics do you love to learn?
If you answer these questions then believe me you will end up with more than 5 or 10 niche ideas to start a blog.
If you are still not able to make a list of niches you are passionate then you can try this method this will definitely work.
What you have to do is that you have to spend a whole day with the mindset of a marketer.
You have to see and hear everything from a marketing mindset.
Wherever you are you have to look around on the thing and try to find whether you can start a blog about it.
Once you start doing that you will start getting a lot of niche ideas.
When a niche idea clicked your mind then you have to ask yourself whether you can work consistently on that niche or niche.
Once you got the answer, “YES” then immediately write down that idea.
If you follow this procedure then you will come up with a lot of niche ideas.
I am saying it again that you should be passionate about niche.
I’m putting stress on being passionate because it is very necessary to start a blog around that niche.
So, let’s understand the benefit of being passionate about a niche and why I’m giving stress on it.
If you are passionate about a niche and you can work on that niche without getting board then, believe me, you can outrank your competitor because there may be chances that your competitor is not passionate about that niche, he/she is just running that blog to make money.
I passionate persona always do better than a money-minded person.
Because if a person is highly passionate about anything then he/she will not get disturbed by any hurdle in his/her ways of success.
No matter what happens he/she will definitely achieve that goal.
So thatswhy if you choose a niche about which you are really passionate then you will definitely on the right track to get success.
But, being only passionate about a niche not enough to get success you have to check some other factors in that niche to actually achieve success.
Being passionate is a good thing if you have it in your niche but other things also matter a lot.
So keep reading to get to know about whats are the other things which should be there in your niche and also on those factors we are going to shortlist your list of niches and we will end up with one profitable niche.
Check the Trends
Once you have prepared your list of passionate niches then you have to check the trends of those niches.
You can check the trends with the help of using Google Trends tool.
This tool will let you know about the trends of the keywords or niche.
Check out this video to know how to use Google trends
So by using this tool, you will get to know about whether you should go with a niche or not.
If the trends of the niche or keyword are continuously going down then you should have to understand the reason for declining trends of that niche.
There can be many reasons for that for the declining trends such as:
It may be a seasonal niche like ice keying
It may be due to the declining interest of people in that niche.
And many more reasons.
If your niche is a seasonal niche then you will only get traffic in that particular season you can start this niche but you have to keep mind that it is not going to be the cow for the whole year.
You will only earn money during a definite period of time.
If your niches trend in declining become people are no more interested in it then you should immediately drow the idea of starting a blog in that niche.
Because even if you will be able to rank your blog in the top results your traffic is going to reduce day-by-day
because people are losing interest in that niche.
If your niches trend is constant or continuously going upward then you should opt that niche to start a blog because people are searching for it.
Identify problems of people in your niche
Once you have checked the trend of your niche then you have to look for the problems of the audience in your niche.
You have to look for the problems because if there is any problem then people will be ready to pay for its solution.
For example, if I person does not know how to design a beautiful landing page of the blog then you can tell him the solution that you can use, “Elementor” plugin to make attracting landing pages for your blog.
This is where you are going to make money.
And this just a give and take you are giving him the solution to his problem and you will get some commission in return.
If you don’t know how to find problems of the audience in your niche then you can find it with the following methods:
Join Forums Related To Your Niche:
By joining the forms related to your niche you will get into the community of the people who are searching about your niche.
Once you entered into that community then you will get to know about the problems to write articles.
You will not only get to know about the problems to write a blog but you will also get to know about the solution to that problem when someone comments on that post.
Isn’t it so easy to find the problems of readers in your niche with there solution?
Use Google Auto Suggest
You have seen that whenever you try to search for a term on Google it automatically starts recommending to some options.
Have you ever tried to understand why those options are appearing during typing?
If you don’t know then let me tell you.
Those are the search terms which most people searching about and whenever Google gets to know that the user is searching about that term then it starts recommending the most searched terms.
Google does this to enhance the user search experience.
You can also check the ” search-related to_______” section under all the search results.
Believe me, this is going to help you a lot to find problems with readers in your niche.
Run a survey
You can run a survey to collect queries of the audience in your niche.
But in this method, you have to invert some money whereas the above two methods are absolutely free.
Analyze your competitors ranking
In this step you ave to check the ranking of your competitor.
Now you will be thinking about what you have to check about the ranking of the competitor.
So, let me tell you.
You have to check whether the top-ranking results are stable or there is any fluctuation.
If you don’t know how to check the fluctuations in the search results then don’t worry I’m here to tell you.
You have to use a keyword research tool and you have to check the SERP( Search Engine Result Page ).
If you don’t know what is SERP then check out this video.
If you find there is no fluctuation in the articles of the top-ranking sites then you should not enter that niche because those top-ranking sites are during those positions form a long time and they may have very high domain authority so being a newbie you can’t compete with the top-ranking sites.
But if there is any fluctuation in the top results then you should opt that niche because there will be chances that if you write good quality content than the top-ranking sites and increase your domain authority then Google will rank your article in the top results.
If you don’t know which tool you should use to spy on your competitor then I would recommend you to go with Semrush
Check the Profitability in Your Niche
You have to check whether your niche is profitable or not to earn money with your blog.
To check this you have to look for is there any advertisement running in your niche.
If you find that people are running advertisements in your niche then that niche is definitely profitable.
Because nobody invests money to promote anything unless or until it is profitable.
You can check for the advertisement on Google, Facebook, and Quora.
This is one of the best ways to check the profitability in any niche.
Check Monetization Methods
Once you get to know that there are some chances of getting your articles ranked in the top search results then you have to check whether there is any method of monetization of your blog.
If selected a niche to start a blog but it does not have any kind of monetization option then you will end up wasting your time because you will be not able to make even a single penny even if you rank your articles in the top search results.
There are different methods of monetization of your blog.
- Google Adsense
- Affiliate Marketing
- You can sell own products or services
- Sell your courses
- And there are many more ways of monetization.
If you Don’t know how to check the right monetization methods for your blog then let me tell you.
You can analyze the articles of your competitor and check with monetization methods they are using to monetize their articles you can also use it on your articles.
This is a very simple method to find monetization methods for your blog because in this method you only have to analyze the articles of your competitors which is not going to take a hell lot of time.
In this method, you have to find monetization methods yourself.
With the help of the previous method, you are just replicating the monetization method of your competitor but in this method, you have to do deep research to find any affiliate products for your articles.
You can use a tool, “Affilitizer ” to make this research process much simpler and less time-consuming.
Check The Willingness To Pay Audience
In this step, you have to check whether your audience is willing to invest money to get a solution or not.
This is a must check because if you are running a niche and you have affiliate products to promote but your audience is not willing to pay then you are not going to make money in that niche.
For example, If you are in a health niche then your audience will definitely pay you if you provide them a remedy for your niche.
But you have to create a good image of your blog in the eye of your audience because a reader is going to only invest in your product if he/she has enough faith in you.
And if you promote any wrong just to make money by which your reader’s health got worst then he/she is not going to come again on your website.
You have to be very careful if you want to start a blog in the health niche.
And if you are running a blog to promote luxury items then you are going to have a rich audience how to going to spend money open-heartedly.
You can earn a lot by promoting luxury items because your audience will be ready to pay any price.
But in that case, you are going to have very little traffic because general people can’t afford those luxury products.
If you start a niche to target the general public who can afford only normal goods then you will get tons of traffics and you can earn a lot because you will have a large number of audience.
So you have to see which keed of audience you are going to get in your niche and also to check the paying ability of your audience to promote the right products in your niche.
Because if you targeting the general public and you are promoting luxury products in your niche then you are not going to get a high conversion rate.
So, you have to check this out to promote the right products and get a better conversion rate.
Check Can you write almost 50 articles on that niche
This is the last step to find a profitable blog niche.
In this step, you may have amazed that why I have said you to check whether you can write almost 50 articles on a niche.
So, let me tell you the reason for that.
You have to check this because you have to check about how much content you can upload on a blog of that niche.
If you are passionate about a niche but you do not have enough content to upload then it’s not the right niche for you to start a blog.
Because if you start a blog on that niche then you would not be able to turn that blog into a brand.
If you want to earn real money with a blog then you have to turn your blog into a brand.
You have to upload content on your blog consistently to increase the visibility of your blog in Google.
Thatswhy it is important to check the quantity of the content related to the niche before starting a blog.
