1 Choosing a profitable Niche
The most exciting and breath-taking step when thinking about blogging is ‘niche‘.
This is the most prominent challenge people are facing when they are going to think about blogging. There are millions of blogs running for competition on the internet.
Pick any topic, and there will be a competition which you will never beat. That’s the reason why most of the people close their blogging career within 6 months.
It is hard to achieve rankings, and it is impossible to make money without getting organic traffic. Well, the only thing which can pull you from the ocean is a micro niche.
This is where you can extract new ideas and can write an excellent post about a specific topic. The niche itself is a micro topic where the search volume will be low, but the conversion rate will be high.
Let me tell you one example. Suppose if your targeted keyword has only 1000 search volume per month. As we know, even you achieved the number one position in search results, you will get only 50 to 60% clicks.
That means approximately your keyword can pull 500 to 600 traffic every month. This is very low but what if you can make 20 articles which have a similar search volume.
Experimentally, you will end up by getting 10,000 visitors per month. Let’s say, you are making a 2% conversion rate. This is not a big deal in terms of conversions.
So, you are successful in making a 2% conversion rate with $5 Commission. (10,000×0.02×5$)
BOOM, you are making $1000 a month.
That’s the reason why you have to choose a more profitable topic, and you will get this commission only if your product’s price is above $100 (Amazon). The hottest trend of micro niche sites is you can earn passive income without investing money.
Long-term bloggers will focus on the authority, and they will write informative content to flow case their reputation, but their income will be low in the beginning.
All right. Now, it’s the time to find PERFECT NICHE. Here are some breakdowns of how you can pick a perfect Niche.
1.a) Explore what excites you
When something is impressing you, and you are passionate about that; you will write every day without compromising the quality and quantity. This is the best advice any marketer or any successful blogger will give you.
You have to choose the perfect topic where you are passionate about. Even if you are not passionate, you should be enthusiastic about the topic.
When you have interest, you will spend time to research, and when you research, you will end up by writing an awesome article.
So the first thing comes first, find the topic where you have an interest or where you are experienced.
1.b) Find your Niche using online tools
Probably you are in confusion right now because you don’t know in which industry you have interest and you can write. Don’t worry, I will tell you the exact process to find a profitable niche. Here are some methods to find a topic to start your blogging.
You know Quora. This is the largest question and answers platform on the internet right now. Quora is not only a place where you can find questions and answers, but also you can find the profitable and most hottest niche topics.
Open Quora and enter your search term. Suppose if you want to go with health niche, then Just enter your topic name and search.
On the right side of search results, you will find solutions which Quora will give you with maximum engagement rate. That means people are interested in these topics and from the list, you can choose a topic.
From the list, it suggested, select a topic which has less competition. Now how do you define the competition of a niche?
It’s simple that when you search for the term on Google, and if you find the results with the authoritative sites, then the niche/micro niche is competitive.
The best thing about using Amazon niche sites is, people will believe your blog because of the authority you are passing. If all your products on your blog are targeting Amazon or Flipkart, then it will be like a cakewalk to you to earn money if you are capable of generating more visitors.
Of course, people will believe and will follow your blog regularly to find decent products with great discounts.
The research said that over 65% of the people purchase online products from bloggers recommendation.
That’s the Killing point which you can hold and start making money online with these products promotion. Now, open Amazon and navigate to find the exact product in a specific niche.
When people search for something like “which is the best bike riding Jackets in winter” then they will end up by purchasing a jacket from your referral link.
This is one of my favourite methods to find any Niche before starting a blog. Now, you cleared the Niche, what’s next?
1.c) Is your niche profitable?
The next question you should ask yourself. Take some time and spend your time for research to know that, is your niche profitable and can make you money?
If you need some help, then our accommodation is to choose those products which cost above $100 if you think about affiliate marketing.
But if you want to depend on Ad networks, then you have to depend on the traffic. When you have great traffic, then you will earn great revenue from ads. But in the affiliate niche, you can make hundreds of dollars even with few action takers. That’s the beauty of affiliate marketing.
2 Finding the RIGHT DOMAIN
The domain is a brand. It reflects your business. Although there is no importance for the domain extensions in search engine factors, you should maintain the decency to market your brand. Pick a domain which will establish you as a marketer. Even before revealing your niche, your domain should explain your business.
So how do you find a good domain name?
Always choose the short and sweet domain with Global extensions (.com/.net) if there is a chance. You can also use a long domain, but it will be better if you can make it short because if someone is going to pronounce your domain name, then it makes sense right?
It is not mandatory to go with the Global extension, but it is advisable. Because people trust global domains and as well you can target worldwide traffic.
So how do you find a domain? Suppose you are writing about ‘dog food’ niche, then include these words ‘dog’ and ‘food’.
‘Instant domain search’ is a free online domain availability checker tool. Even though it is free and useful, I prefer ‘Lean domain search’. This tool is beneficial and will save your time.
You just have to enter your focused or targeted keyphrase in the Lean domain search, and it will suggest you the available .com domains.
You can also choose the separate extension in the settings, and you can also Filter it by the number of characters too. This is the best tool I use to find domains.
Your domain can be exact domain match(EDM) or related domain match(RDM).
3 Choose the Best HOSTING
The next step and important step is choosing the right hosting platform. There are so many hosting providers we can see online, but only a few of them are worth spending your money.
Siteground is one of the best WordPress hosting providers we have right now, and it is officially recommended by WordPress. A lot of marketers and influencers use Siteground for beginner sites.
Once you reach the maximum business, then you can move to VPS/Cloud hosting or dedicated hosting. Until then, Siteground will serve as a better doctor to your website.
Navigate to Siteground and create an account after registering your domain.
The most beautiful advantage of Siteground is it serves the best handling time.
If you already registered your domain, then you can use it, or if you want to register your domain from Siteground, then you can register your domain from here. The process and the price will be the same.

4 Install WordPress
