What is a Niche

Well would­n’t you like to know? Yes it’s a strange lit­tle word isn’t it? But it is the cen­ter of every­thing for a Blog­ger.  To Mkake Mon­ey Online with a Blog, you have to choose a “Niche”.  So here is the def­i­n­i­tion:

a spe­cial­ized seg­ment of the mar­ket for a par­tic­u­lar kind of prod­uct or service.“he believes he has found a niche in the mar­ket”. Oxford Lan­guages

Yeah I know def­i­n­i­tions, hey at least I’m not ask­ing you to write the word and the def­i­n­i­tion 5 times! I remem­ber those days fond­ly.

Before You Write Anything

Before you Write Any­thing, you have to deter­mine what your “Niche” is and come up with a name for your “Domain”.  A Domain is the name of your Web­site (ie: myblog.com).

There are sev­er­al ways to do this. Many peo­ple have var­ied Pas­sions, Inter­ests, and/or Hob­bies. Any­thing of this nature would make a great Niche. You want to write about some­thing you enjoy, you want to learn more about, and pos­si­bly you already have some knowl­edge. That gives you a bit of an advan­tage. If its some­thing you like to read about or do, your more like­ly to main­tain your focus

Anoth­er sug­ges­tion is to walk thru you house, office, garage or work space. What do you see? Tro­phies from when you used to race cars. There’s a Niche. Maybe you col­lect Antiques, or Ted­dy Bears. Remem­ber the “Beanie Babies”? Talk about a Niche. Maybe you make those beau­ti­ful epoxy tables. Do you read a lot of Crime Nov­els, maybe you a Mechan­ic and know a lot about Tools and how to use them, All the­ses are exam­ples of a Niche.

Drill It Down

You would want to “drill” you Niche down. Be more spe­cif­ic, remem­ber you want to answer a ques­tion? Lets say you Niche is Grow­ing Plants. Pret­ty broad sub­ject isn’t it. So let’s say, Grow­ing Plants — Flow­ers. Still pret­ty large field, “drill” down even fur­ther. Grow­ing Plants — Flow­ers — Ros­es — Minia­ture. So you Niche is Grow­ing Minia­ture Ros­es. That sounds real­ly sim­ple when you read it but when you doing it your­self, it can be frus­trat­ing.

List every­thing you ever thought you might enjoy learn­ing about in depth. Sit with that list, read thru it again, and again. Mark off the sub­jects you just don’t see hap­pen­ing. Even­tu­al­ly it will come to you. Like a light bulb in the night.

Niche Finder

There are avail­able on the Inter­net, pro­grams and apps that search out a Niche for you. I use Google a lot. Google has a lot of built in tools for Mak­ing Mon­ey Online. They have Research Tools and tools that pro­vide you with the back office data you will be look­ing for lat­er, down the road. Plus Google Exten­sions for you Chrome brows­er.

Most Affil­i­ate Pro­grams you join will pro­vide with a Niche Find­er as part of their pack­age. I sug­gest you check 2–3 dif­fer­ent sources. Always look online for free Tools. Beware of any site that asks for cred­it card infor­ma­tion just to look at their site. I haven’t had to pay for any­thing except my Domain Name (wow $14 a year).

Final Thoughts

Select­ing a Niche can be as broad or as lim­it­ed as you want. Again, Noth­ing is Writ­ten in Stone. But using spe­cif­ic terms, tar­get­ing a spe­cif­ic Niche and know­ing you read­ers will bring you the Traf­fic you look­ing for. When I search for an item, I look for that spe­cif­ic item. I don’t want a trash can, I want a trash can with an attached lid and it has to be on wheels, See the dif­fer­ence in the search terms. One very gen­er­al, the oth­er “drilled down” to a spe­cif­ic Niche.

Take what we’ve talk about today and think about it. Roll it around in you head. What would you Niche be? Would you make it a Gen­er­al Niche or “drill” it down to some­thing more spe­cif­ic?

Leave me a com­ment below and let me know what you think would be your Niche,

Always keep in mind that we are here to be a part of a com­mu­ni­ty. Write every­thing with the idea that your help­ing some­one answer a ques­tion. Peo­ple like to find an Author­i­ty on the sub­ject they are look­ing into, Become that Author­i­ty by apply­ing thought about you con­tent, research, and link the site occa­sion­al­ly. Google likes that from what I hear.
