Before you continue, please don’t be a victim of this.
Many bloggers have not made a dime from blogging, but still, they are bloggers
While a few others, spend less than a year and start making money.
In the world today, monthly earnings have taught the young ones what to choose as a profession
And what not to venture into.
Same is in blogging.
All niches pay but some pay better.
So if you’re going to start a blog, it would be wise to consider which blog niche pays better, so you won’t end up spending years without earning.
Let’s see the highest paying blog niches
Blogging Topics that make money
how to make money
Health and fitness
Education / school
Fashion and Beauty
The above list was compiled based on Adsense CPC (revenue).
Bloggers who tend to teach people how to make money, actually are making their own money,
They sell e-books, run ads, sell courses
All about teaching you to make money! while making theirs (cool)
The real estate is a money bag because earnings per completed task is very high, many real estate bloggers make up to N200k per completed transaction.
So what am I getting at?
It’s always best to know if the niche you have chosen pays well.
In case you are wondering why Entertainment and News bloggers were not listed.
Here is a simple explanation.
They don’t pay well.
A blogger in the education niche can earn up to $10 with 500 pageviews and a few clicks a day but a news blogger won’t earn up to $2 with same stats.
Though, In terms of traffic news and entertainment are the best
but in terms of earnings, They ain’t regarded.
I would have ended the whole story here,
But then I don’t want you to make the same mistakes lot of persons make.
Here is what am talking about.
How to pick a specific topic inside a niche
Niches are broad and way too hard to manage
A wise blogger should know this!
When we say “Niche”, we are talking about “Music, News, Health” etc
But when we say topic, it means a subsection of a niche.
For music, we have “Gospel, hip-hop, Country ” etc as topics, you can even go further to languages And countries such as “Yoruba songs, Ghanaian songs”.
While for health we have same such as “Men’s health, Women’s health,” etc
What most bloggers do, is jump into the niche and start writing random stuff…
Not in this generation,
Nowadays picking a specific blog topic in a niche is way more successful than diving into a niche.
Here are a few facts to consider.
Easy to decide on what to write about: if you happen to be a Nigerian music blogger, then it will be way more easy for you, why? you can easily focus on just Nigerian songs
Targeted audiences: A man having health issues is bound to click on a site that talks about men’s health than a multi-function blog. In that way, you can provide real solutions to a specific set of people.
Converting earning channels: Advert program such as Google Adsense will find it easy to place relevant ads on your blog. And also if you decide to run affiliate marketing then it is easy to decide which programs to join.
Better lead generation: users will opt in more if they realize you cover everything they want in a specific topic.
Lesser competition: It is way easier to compete in a sub-niche such as “Facebook marketing tips” than a big niche such as “social media marketing”.
So what do you think?
Still going for a big niche?… I doubt that.
