Money-Making Niche Blogging

by EzyBlogger on April 27, 2009 · 19 comments · Blogging


 Niche Blogging Is Fun

What a better and more enjoyable way to make money – potentially plenty of it – than by writing everyday about subjects you love, and about which you know a great deal!

For example, if you are a horse lover or owner, you may want to start a blog on race horses.

There are millions of people who would have an interest in reading about horses, so just that alone, and making the subject of the blog more specific by gearing it towards race horses, will help to make your blog a successful one that many people will want to visit again and again.

And the more specific you make your blog the more it will stand out, which in turn will make it more attractive to a specific group of readers.

To find a more specific or unique topic (or simply to get more ideas about what to write on an already unique topic) you can go to the Google or Yahoo Directory (to name just a few) to find sub-categories of the more general niche topic.

For instance, the broad area of interest in “books” might lead one to focus on “American literature”.

Unique niche blogging targets readers with a specific and focused interest, which makes it more likely that they will frequently visit and read your blog, which in the end means more money for you.

Another thing that makes niche blogging so attractive is that there is usually no startup cost.

You can do this by using WordPress or Blogger. But as your blog attracts more and more traffic on the Internet and becomes more profitable, it is quite likely you will want to invest in tools that will make your blog even more successful.

And why stop at just one blog? Unless you have severe time restraints, and as long as you have knowledge of and a passion for other topics, you can always get another, money- making niche blog going.

To make money from your blog, you need to find an affiliate website to which you can direct your readers for products and services related to the subject of your blog (and their interests and needs).

You earn a commission every time someone makes a purchase from that affiliate.

In return for the business you have sent its way, the affiliate directs readers to your blog so you can make more money still.

Also, companies will pay you if you allow them to post an ad on your blog page.

In those ways, you are actually doing your readers a great service by facilitating their access to what they might need or want.

In any case, it is important to update your blog daily so as to keep a high flow of readers coming to it.

Some people even update their blog several times a day.

This generates a consistently high level of interest in the blog in the form of return visitors who want to see what new ideas and information you have added, and makes the blog more visible to search engines.

Besides the fact that it is usually free to get started, another nice thing about niche blogging (which is really one of the most successful ways of generating income from the Internet) is that it usually does not require great demands on your time, except when you might have several blogs going on all at once.

But in the latter case, if you have chosen your niches wisely, you will be making all that much more money when your readers go to your affiliate site and make a purchase.

You can also make a decent income by building an email list of readers in your niche, starting a newsletter, guest posting once you get a following…the possibilities are endless!

Great post – it sounds wonderful. I’m just getting started with a new blog, and of course I have high hopes to have a lot of traffic someday in the future. It would be a dream come true to be able to make a living from blogging, but I’m having a blast now just getting a few comments and subscribers.

I have three niche bloggers, one that gives me a stable amount of money ($100-$200/month), one that I never thought would make me money, and one that never actually made money.

But had never ever dive into having an affiliate niche site.

Great post Roseli

Cheers,
Meg

Hi Meg,

Affiliate programs works only if the ads are related to your blog.

For example, like your blog, Developerholic, you are only using adsense to monetize when you can use many other themes affiliate program to monetize.

There are a lot of wordpress theme affiliate programs that converts well like THESIS and AFFILIATE theme or you can search on google.

Give it a try.

Excellent Excellent post! I have been working online for a little over 10 years now and I have been working “Niche Traffic” the entire time. There is a tremendous amount of potential in niche blogging, or niche anything.

I’ve just been blogging since late last year, and LOVE it. I am a writer, and would write for free, pretty much what I’m doing. But would LOVE to get paid. I’m going to try some of your suggestions, come back to your site, again and again. You have a lot to offer. I’m glad I clicked on your link from your comment on the 31 Day BBB Challenge. I’m looking forward to going through your site with a fine tooth comb!

Thanks.

I’ve seen your blog and you’re doing great actually. You write very well and you will be making money soon enough. Just try to get your adsense ads on more prominent place to get more clicks.

I started blogging since last month, but I have learnt about how making money online for about 3 years. Before I only made money online from both readings paid emails, subscriptions and betting on soccer/basketball games. Now I’m making money from either google adsense or bidvertiser, along with chitika and several refferal programs. I am going to promote products from some marketplace like clickbank, paydotcom and click2sell. I don’t like scam nor hype, I just want to promote products that are very helpful in the success of my readers. I am very determinated to quit my day work and spend more time on my blog to generate a decent income. I probably made a mistake in choosing my name as my domain name, but it will be a great challenge to gather visitors to my blog.

Create a blog in a seperate niche, don’t blog about everything in a single blog.

Niche blogs tends to make more money for me Benjamin.
