Blogging can do a lot for your long term career goals — it can be a way to break into the sector you want to work in, or attract attention and gain a following. Best of all, there’s profit to be made.
Depending on what you blog about, there are thousands of people looking to sponsor or advertise through your website, and you’ll get a cut of every single cent these companies will make. And not only that, but if you get good enough at what you write about, you’ll be considered a specialist, which can lead to a lot of opportunities, which will be another great boost to your bank balance!
So, in the interest of taking your blogging dreams to the next level, here is a quick list of blogging niches that’ll always be profitable.
Marketing, especially digital marketing, is a hot topic of commodity. Everybody’s online, and they all want to know how to draw more people toward their blog, website, or business. And if you have some experience in this area, you have the chance to name your price for dispensing your wisdom.
Finance, as you might guess, has a lot of money in it! People will always want to know more about what they can do with their money, and if you’ve got some advice you think people will want to know about, why not create a finance or investment blog?
The more financial topics you write about, the wider the corner of the market you’ll be able to corner. So don’t be afraid to delve into serious topics, such as CFD Trading, dealing with taxes, getting a bad credit mortgage, and purchasing bonds, etc. The more you know, the better your chance at making a profit, especially when dealing with corporate competition.
Travel is more of a soft topic, but it’s a very interesting one to write about, simply because of all the adventures you’ll get to go on. And for the people that can’t go along with you or the people who are thinking of visiting similar places and want to know what they’re like, you’ll be the font of all knowledge for their wanderlust. So, why not capitalize on this?
You also have a chance to make a good profit off of the film, TV, and video game industries. These are three of the richest industries in the world right now, all worth billions of dollars, and people want to know more about them. Write reviews on the latest releases, garner a bit of a reputation for your critical, comedic, and totally honest conclusions, and watch how your sponsorship opportunities go up and up!
Yes, some blogging niches will always be more profitable than others, so why not move into sectors like those mentioned above?
