Alternate Niche Selection Process
Even with the best plans, things can (or will) go wrong. You do not know if you really like your topic until you start blogging. Some issues that can have you doubting your niche selection are:
- Will I even like my topic in 6 months? What about after one year?
- Will people enjoy reading my posts? Are they reading it?
Blogging takes time to learn specific skills to make it successful. And there are tons of techniques and methods for a novice blogger to learn. It could be overwhelming if not managed correctly.
Instead of going through the niche selection process listed above, you could write on broad topics. Get a website with your name (i.e. JohnSmith.com) and write about whatever topic that makes you feel comfortable.
Your focus is to develop your craft: blogging online-apteekki.com. Take it slow and learn as much as you can while discussing different topics. Over time, you will notice that your readers will help you narrow down to a niche. Certain topics you address seem to get the most attention from your readers. Expand your reach into these topics and watch your readership grow.
In fact, you will be giving the people want they want. For example, you blog about exercise, gardening and reality TV. You notice you get twice as many comments on the exercise blog than the other two blogs combined. Your readers just pointed you to the niche that can make you successful.
The skills you learned while doing the broad blog can now be deployed to your niche. Techniques such as writing a good blog, posting to Pinterest, posting to Facebook and building an email list will turn your niche blog into a money-making machine.
Mistakes to Avoid
What are some Mistakes to avoid, when starting up and brainstorming the perfect topic or Niche for our blog?
- Do not start a niche you are not passionate – readers can tell if you believe in what you are writing. False motivation will turn people off quickly. Remember, your goal is to help your reader with a problem.
Don’t be a copycat! – Not because your friend has the fashion about a certain topic will also apply to you. Remember, never ever imitate someone to gain popularity, this is the law of originality. Be creative and create your own story.
