Blog Niche Ideas That Can Make You Six – Figures

Choosing one of these unique blog niche ideas as the foundation of your online business can make you six figures a year. This needs to the first step on your blogging journey.

These blog niche ideas cover a large range of interests so no matter what niches you are interested in you’re likely to find it here. And, all of these niches offer ideas for less competitive, but very lucrative, sub-niches.

People often ask if you need to have a personal interest in a niche in order to build a blog around it, the short answer is no.

You can build a blog around a niche based solely on it’s profitability, but I would caution you against it for 3 main reasons:

  1. As you build out your niche blog you will be spending a lot of time researching what content to add. It’s much more interesting to read and learn about a niche that you already have an interest in. It can keep you motivated if you’re spending time learning more about something you already love.
  2. If you choose a niche that you already love you’re likely to have a lot of knowledge about that niche already. This means you have a lot of information right in your head that you can share with your audience. Personal experience within the niche not only means less time researching, it can mean your content will be more personal and pinpointed, and yes, more interesting to your audience.

Start Doing These Things Right From The Start

Before you settle on a niche, it’s important to know the specific steps you’ll want to take to grow a truly profitable business.

  • Set up optin forms and/ or landing pages to start growing your email list right from the start
  • Nurture your email list by providing quality, helpful content on a regular basis.
  • Your blog website is the foundation of your business, take care of it. Keep the plugins and themes updated for maximum performance and security.

Keep these points in mind as you go through this great compilation of blog niche ideas from a blog called

Niche Category: Health and Fitness
List of niches: health and fitness

There’s a reason why I chose this category first. Weight loss sites are HUGE when it comes to producing revenue. People who want to get fit or lose weight are desperate and seek out any information they can to help them gain an advantage in their struggle.

They’re also willing to spend money if there’s a product that can help them on their journey.

There are two things that sell better than anything else: pain and pleasure.

What’s wonderful about health and fitness is you can fit almost an endless number of niche ideas within this category. Think about how many different diets and exercise programs that exist today.

You can use this to your advantage and expand beyond one niche once you’ve covered one of the niches completely.

For example, you can start your website talking about the the right diet plans. Then you can also add information about exercises to help people reach their weight goals (you will find more Health & Fitness ideas in this list of niches, read on below)
