What is a Business Niche?

hey everyone Nayeem here of mxseller.com so the first thing you really need to start with is a
business plan so you have to stop looking at your blog as just this website that you’re
creating that’s gonna have

some like fun pictures on it and you know enables you to tap into your creative spirit okay first
and foremost you’re always running a business so you need to have a business plan which
means you need

to start writing things down like who’s your target audience that is simply the people that you’re
trying to reach the most are they stay-at-home moms are they traveling people are they knitters
are they bakers are they you know pet sitters whatever your target audience is you need to have

a very clearly defined paragraph that could point them out easily in a crowd right so you don’t
want to just say well I’m targeting stay-at-home moms you’ll want to say something along the
lines of I’m targeting stay-at-
home moms in particular that have five kids under the age of five
or large families or something like that.

1. So Fast Topic is You Select a Niche & Business Plan

You can Also Focus Your Business Plan within that business plan you’ll also want to have a
Content plan that is a list of ideas of the things that you’re going to post and you’ll also want to
bounce around some product ideas so no functioning

How To Start a Blog And Make Money

Business out there is going to lack in offering products or services and/or services because
technically you could do both so you want to be able to monetize your brand in some way
outside of making money  through the typical routes like ad revenue or affiliate income that is all
good and well and

I absolutely think you should have that within your business but it’s not the only thing you should
have in your back pocket you should absolutely be monetizing just your brand on your own and
also have control over 

how it is monetized that is having control over the products that you create or the services you
offer so you can make money within your business plan it’s also important to make sure that
you clearly define your very specific niche so it’s 2020 alright gone are the days where you can

just be a mommy blogger or a personal finance blogger etc. and so forth you need to become
very specific now part of identifying your specific niche is really just clearly defining your audience
so the main group of people that you 

really want to reach so once you have that figured out it kind of ties in with your niche and you
can clearly define what your very specific niche should be if you need some help trying to decide
what kind of niche you want to choose I will leave a link down below I have over a hundred

and sixty blog niche ideas they’re not boring they’re very good ones so you’ll definitely want to
check that out if you just
need some brainstorming help.

2. Stick to Your Specific Niche

How To Start a Blog And Make Money

To always stick to your very specific niche okay never deviate from the niche that you have chosen
so if you have been a paleo food blogger for busy moms for the past five years or even the past
year
 or the past month and you know for sure and for certain that that specific niche is the one

That you want to stick to for the next ten years then that’s what you have to stick to okay so if
you start having a sudden passion for knitting or maybe you’ve always had the passion but now
you want to start writing about it 

you can’t integrate those two topics because they’re simply too different ok people that are looking
for paleo recipes and our busy moms are not necessarily interested in knitting so if that is

the case and you feel that God is truly calling you to write about those two separate topics then
God is also telling you to
start to separate blogs.

3. Brainstorm Product/Service Ideas ASAP

 

Start brainstorming product and/or service ideas from day number one and if you’ve been
blogging for 300 days then start right now like I mentioned in tip number one being able to
have complete control 

over something that you can make money from is very powerful in a business and it enables
you to have a lot of freedom so while creating products or offering services can be
time-consuming and very draining and stressful that can also be one of the biggest money
may

within your blogging business when you depend on things like ad revenue you’re really chaining
yourself to a couple of different elements that are out of your control what time of the year

is it because advertisers will pay more around Christmas time and then how many page views
are you getting each month because that’s going to dictate

how much you’re making that’s fine and you can work within those guidelines but you need to
diversify your income streams in order to actually make more money and so the number one

thing I would suggest to you is that if I had to choose one way that I was going to make money
on my blog, it would be through products and/or services so I would create my own online courses
or eBooks or workbooks or things of 

That nature or on the other end of the spectrum I could offer consulting or some sort of service to
someone else a VA service a Pinterest VA service it’s just important to be able to have more control
over how you can make your money.

4. Be Humble And Get Help When You Need It

How To Start a Blog And Make Money

you need to get help when you can eat a slice of humble pie, my friend, if you are not good at
creating Pinterest pins and it takes you 10 times longer than it really should you’re wasting
time creating 

Pinterest pins they’re an integral part of your business you need to have good looking social
media graphics but that’s something that you could easily hire out now at the beginning of your
blogging 

journey and I did the same thing you’re not likely to actually spend loads of money I am very
frugal I like to just pinch those pennies whenever I can I like to keep them in my own pocket
so I understand

that hiring out some of those tasks, in the beginning, is not going to be something that you
can do that’s okay you can hustle and work hard right now and eventually get to the point to

where you can hire out some duties so if you need help with your bookkeeping or writing
content or creating social media graphics keep that in mind find the shortcuts as best as
you can right now do with your own skills

what you can and then eventually work to the point where you can hire that out because
the main thing is you’re the SEO you’re not somebody that should be doing those just tiny

minor details that take up a lot of your time you should be focusing on the bigger picture
stuff and so this is just something to keep in mind.

5. Be True to Your Authentic Self And Never Steal Anyone Else’s Ideas

How To Start a Blog And Make Money

Now I like I really had to put this tip on there because more often than it should happen
I find that people steal ideas from other bloggers they steal ideas from me they steal

ideal from the ideas from anyone else because and I’m sure they look at it as a shortcut
so when someone steals a blog post idea 

that’s very authentic to me it’s something that’s very specific to just Alison Lindstrom and
it’s not your typical you know five tips for starting a new blog you know that’s everyone
does something like that

but if it’s very specific to Alison Lindstrom and I see somebody else take it does hurt a little
bit because I’m like hey I worked hard to come up with that authentic content you shouldn’t
be stealing that you know 

but in the long run, I look at what’s truly happening there you’re stealing from your authentic
self so if you’re smart enough and you have the time to go steal someone else’s ideas then
you’re smart enough

you’re smart enough and you have the time to go steal someone else’s ideas then you’re
smart enough Channel I know you’re not gonna be stealing ideas so I wanted to include
this last tip as appoint as

just a reminder to say when you see another blogger that’s in your niche and they have
something that’s truly authentic resists the temptation to just carbon copy it to your own
website because one that is stealing 

and two it just takes away from your own brand readers are not foolish so they will catch
on to the fact that someone else’s kind of copycatting someone else’s blog and you don’t
want to do that because it

totally stints your growth as a blogging business owners my recommendation when
following this tip, in particular, is stop reading the blogs of the people that are in your
specific niche I can’t tell

you when the last time was that I actually read or followed anybody that was within
my immediate niche unless it like popped up somehow and my feet or something like
that if I just naturally saw them in the algorithm 

feeds that occur on social media right so outside of that I don’t voluntarily seek out any
other bloggers that are within my niche because I’m terrified that later on its gonna spark
an idea and

I’m gonna be like oh this is a wonderful idea I should create this blog post and I’m like
wait have I seen that somewhere and you want to avoid that as much as possible have
a little faith in yourself you can absolutely come up.
