Before you start your own blog and aim to become a successful blogger, consider the following:
The meaning of life is in attaining the highest form of knowledge, which is the idea of the good.”
Ancient Greek philosophers
The same applies to blogging. You want to attain the highest form of knowledge in the niche/topic of your choice. So pick the one that appeals to you – the one you are passionate about and most interested in – aim to reach success, happiness, comfort, security, and recognition.
Picking a perfect niche is difficult
Because, it’s really important.
I’ve been using Cloudways since January 2016 for this blog. I happily recommend Cloudways to my readers because I am a proud customer.
It’s the first and most important decision of your marketing journey. Your actions and your entire future start the moment you make a decision – and of course, you want it be right one.
When someone says “there is no good idea, they are already taken” or “there is no room for me”, what does it really mean:
He is close to give up.
I can tell you “there are an infinite amount of ideas that can turn into successful online businesses and websites, even within saturated markets.””
You have to spend some time figure it out. I know, It is NOT easy and if you really want this, you cannot give up.
Picking a niche is a long-term decision, but if it’s the wrong one, it’s not a long-term loss. You may fail, but as long as you learn it is time well invested.
By picking your niche of interest and having your own point of view you will be able to position and differentiate your blog or online business from the competition.
Here is a post by Elizabeth Dyrsmid from Groove Digital Marketing that shows you exactly why niche selection will boost your marketing success.
Choosing the niche that best fits you is the first step to becoming a successful top blogger.
So, How to choose a perfect niche?
Brainstorm your idea
This is one process that can help you determine which niche is best for you:
Make a list of your interests or hobbies. Which topics fascinate you? List them all, for instance: golf, fishing, yoga, playing games, cooking, etc.
Make a list of the accomplishments you are proud of, for instance: musical talent, artistic talent, sports achievements, etc.
Make a list of difficulties you have overcome or defeated, for instance: lost a significant amount of weight, recovered from a financial setback, etc.
During the course of this exercise, you will get a better feeling for the topics that resonate with you. The ones that you are most passionate about are the best candidates for your niche.
If you still cannot pick one, here is an interesting approach from Nathalie Lussier.
