The top two questions we all ask when building a new blog are: Does this blog niche really get people’s attention? And… Does this topic help me make money? (or more money?)
You will then receive the following advice: Please select a topic that you are really passionate about! And go with it first and then you will also earn money!
Correct! But the truth is that some blog topics are hard to make money or maybe but very little!
So if you really want to make money from blogging then the problem here is that you will have to balance the passion and popularity (the interest of people).
I believe: To truly earn money from blogging you can not just go with the passion you need to go with the popularity!
More specifically you need: Identify a problem that many people are facing and help them solve that problem through your blog!
Ok, so let’s see what problems people are having (especially in the coming 2018)
5 Blog Niches That Get Good Traffic and Make Good Money In 2018
Note that the 5 blog topics below are very large and in each topic you can completely “dig deeper” and choose a smaller “niche”. I will try to give you as much detail as possible. And do not forget to leave your suggestion in the comment section if I have not mentioned it yet!
1. Make money online
Many bloggers make money online by teaching others how to make money online! And so a lot of people started a blog with the topic of making money online with the desire to make money but then never earn money!
That’s the truth! This is a wrong approach and a lot of people are approaching this way!
Remember that online money making stories from well-known bloggers (who make a lot of money) are always hoarded so you’re almost caught up in their “story”, and then you choose the topic same same to theirs.
So the question is: Should beginner bloggers choose the the making money online topic? Yes, You still can! But you need to approach this topic on a journey rather than “jump in” just to make money online.
When I first came to the concept of blogging, I decided to go with the subject of making money online but I approached it by setting a clear goal: Guide you make money online & build passive income from the internet!
And so to guide others to blog and help them generate income, I must first generate income from the blog. How can you teach or guide others to make money when you can not make money?
That is how you build the goal of making money online according to the roadmap. That means you need to build credibility, generating results from your online earning work. Then you can write about making money online!
How do bloggers make money from this topic?
Most of them usually generate income from affiliate marketing, but in the end most of them will try to offer their own services and products. And online courses, book publishing and ebook sales are the most commonly used way!
2. Personal Finance
People often confuse this topic with the topic of making money online. However, when referring to a personal finance blog, that means the blog will help people learn how to manage their finances effectively.
A blog about ways to increase your income, distribute your income streams on investment forms is a kind of personal finance blog.
However, as the topic is broad, so you need to shrink and target a specific form of investment that will be more effective. For example, investing in real estate, stocks, Cryptocurrency or sharing knowledge about insurance.
This is a very broad field and a lot of bloggers exploit. If you do well, the income opportunity from this topic is not bad either. Fields related to this topic will usually be:
- Fashion – Beauty
Cover all the topics that many people are interested in in everyday life. Often, to generate good income and develop a blog on these topics you need to become an influencer to the community itself.
The best way to make money for blogs is usually to advertise for brands. The combination with social networking will support very well for blogs with lifestyle themes
4. Health – Fitness
This is also one of the topics in the potential field for developing a blog. In addition to money, relationships, health is always the top concern.
With this topic you can thoroughly dig deeper to target a very niche market. For example, if you are a fitness enthusiast, you can build a blog about bodybuilding.
The world is changing everyday and the most dramatic change is technology! So in 2018 this technology topic will still appeal to everyone and you will have plenty of opportunities!
Keep in mind that the technology of the year 2018 is not about the internet, computer tricks, WordPress tips … anymore! All of that is over, and there are so many bloggers have done about them.
So the technology of 2018 must be Blockchain technology, artificial intelligence (AI), cryptocurrency exchange… This will be a new land for you to set foot in and explore very well for the coming years.
So with this article I hope to help you choose some of the potential blogging topics that be able to grow very well in the coming 2018 (maybe even many years later).
Basically, these topics are still in the areas where people are most interested, such as finance, health … and with each blog topic, there are different ways to make money to apply the most appropriate.
However, in terms of the long-term and the strategy of developing a blog into an online business (Online Business), ultimately, regardless of what your blog is heading to, you also need to develop the products / services of yourself instead of relying on advertising or affiliate marketing.
