6 Tips To Find a Perfect Niche For Your Blog
Before starting a blog you need to have proper market research and at that time your niche plays a significant role in researching.
Niche will describe how your blog performs in the future, which content ideas are beneficial for your blog and how you can monetize your blog in the future.
Here’s one thing you need to be aware of that, how you can monetize your blog. It is a very big thing that most people are making mistakes. But don’t worry, we’ll discuss it in this article.
Alright, let’s take a deep analysis!
1. What is Your Interest
First thing first. The most common question that should be considered while finding a niche is what is your interest?
It means what topic makes you excited. Which topic, subject or thing makes you feel happy and you are interested to spend your time on.
You need to find that thing that makes you interested. It may be reading books, surfing the internet, grabbing knowledge from different sources, technology, life, food or relationship or it may be anything in the world.
The best way you can arrange these things to write down all your interest on a sheet of paper or notepad. Write down the words you love to talk about and share some knowledge about those things.
The next things are to pick one topic from them from what you wrote. It is even easier to choose.
And congrats!! You chose your niche.
But wait, is that niche has the potential to give you enough profit in future?

If there is competition, there is money but if there is no competition then there is no money.
Sounds strange, right? But it’s actually true!
People are running around those niches which have no competition, less competition or even dead niches. That’s wrong and if you are smart, then you shouldn’t make those mistakes.
I’ll tell you why?
Competition makes a niche more powerful means if there is no competition then why those people who have their high-authority websites give their 100% to rank on top.
When I was starting my blogging career, I also did this same mistake by taking a less competition niche and later when I realize, I sifted myself to another niche.
Pro Tip: Competition is not about just rankings but how the market performing, how people are engaging in that niche, how the monthly searches happening in google and how other marketers generate conversion around that niche, that’s matters.
So make sure your niche have the competition, not even much that hard for everyone to rank but have a decent competition that people are engaging and there are chances to make money.
3. Research The Niche in Market
Another question that might come to your mind: that how you can research the market and can identify which niche should perfect for you?
Alright, I made 5 steps process where you can easily make a market research.
The interesting thing is, these 5 steps are going to be even easier if you use the tools like SEMrush, which is specifically designed for market research and gives you the exact matrices around your topic.

These are some strong matrices that SEMrush gives you, which are going to help you to predict how your site will perform in future if you go with that niche.
Not only for niche selection but these matrices are going to help you take your site from zero to hero. SEMrush’s matrices are 80-90% correct, it means it will give you strong benefits.
4. Research The Market Trend
The market trend is always important while selecting a niche for your blog. Because it is the only sign that can help you to get the idea whether your niche profitable for future or not.
Google trends can make your work even easier. You can enter your niche in the search section and the only thing you have to do is to see whether that niche performing well in the previous 5- years or not.
In my case, as you can see, digital marketing is a top-grossing industry on the internet and gradually people are engaging in this niche.
5. Contain Some Best Products
If you want to do affiliate marketing, then you should look around this section. Not only affiliate marketing but if you doing normal blogging then also it is applicable.
Because the products are the only thing that makes the market more competitive, more engageable and authoritative.
To find those best performing products, you can search in google that what are some best performing products around your niche.
For example, digital marketing is my niche. So if I search “what is the best product around digital marketing” in google then,
It’s obvious that if the niche is digital, then all the products will be in digital form.
And as you can see here, there are lots of websites that already written an article about some best digital marketing tools or software that are being used by users.
And the interesting thing is you can search as per your niche and take the ideas that how those products are leading the market and how they are beneficial for you.

6. What About Other Affiliates
Last but not least! It’s a very crucial thing in niche selection time. You just have to see what other affiliates are doing related to your niche products.
If you don’t have an idea of who are affiliates, then these people are promoters who promote products. At this time, if you want to promote your niche related products, then you are an affiliate.
You need to inspect how other affiliate marketers are promoting those products. Because, if in the market the number of affiliates is high in a specific niche then that niche is highly profitable with decent competition.
You can check in google about this like the search term would be review article or deals article. If my search term is like “SEMrush review”, there are lots of articles on google that are promoting SEMrush software.
And if there are lots of affiliate marketers, then that niche is a profitable niche. Go with it!
Broad vs Specific Topics
To go with a niche, you need to first identify that niche is broad or specific. In my case, if digital marketing is my niche then it is a very broad niche that I can’t even cover everything.
So in this case, I would like to go with sub-niches which are SEO, Search Engine Marketing, Content Marketing, Email Marketing, etc.
So these are some sub-niches that are beneficial for me to go with. And your first priority is this. Whatever niche you selected, you should first target the specific one because the main niche would be very competitive and very hard to rank or compete with others.
