Today in this blog I want to talk to you about something that’s on my mind and it seems like it’s also on other people’s as well.
The number one question that comes up a lot when people are trying to create content for their blog.
What should I write about?
The standard answer that I would give is you need to follow your passion and then everything will fall into place. That answer is only half true. The part about following your passion. Because everything doesn’t just magically fall into place, nothing does.
I’m not being negative here, I’m just being real.
Let’s talk about the first part of that answer. It’s absolutely true you have to be passionate about what you were doing. This is going to make it much easier an automatic for you when coming up with content for your blog. Believe It or not. Your passion will come through in your writing. Your reader will be able to feel the energy you convey.
Now lets you and I take the second part to that answer. Things will just magically fall into place. Things don’t happen this way. If you’re just getting started you have no idea of what things you need to fall in place for things to happen.
I hope that last line makes sense. Read it again if you have to. I wrote the line and I had to read it at least twice.
I’m just trying to be more practical for you right now. This is what you need to do.
You need to be more serious. Think about your mission to the world. You also need a strategy and a purpose. This is not as difficult as it sounds. You just need some time alone to think about a few things.
I am doing a blog for two reasons.
1) To make money allowing me the freedom lifestyle that I desire.
2) To help people.
See, I told you it’s not that hard.
I want to take you through a little thought process.
I’m passionate about entrepreneurialism. I have a software engineering degree and using this to help my prospects and customers to become stronger techies for their business. I’m very passionate about building my community and have a sound strategy for what I am doing to help others grow with me.
I have also have chosen a niche based on others that I have found very successful. I chose this niche because it was an Evergreen niche (seel list below). What this means is that it is already working for people to make money and help others.
I chose to blog because it’s a great way to deliver content to others. Through my blogging, I can help them overcome whatever tech issues they may have with their business.
When considering what niche to pick so that I could make money. I had a choice from the seven Evergreen niches below.
1) How to make money
2) Personal finance
3) Health and fitness
5) Beauty and fashion
6) Relationships / Personal Development
There are obviously more niches that you can pick from to make money. But I chose the seven to give me the best chance to do that.
If you’re a little skeptical on this list. Check out the niche for any big blogger. Chances are it’s going to be one of these seven.
Hey, I get it. You don’t feel like reading the article. Check out the video were you and I will go through each detail.
These are very broad and big niches. The trick is to come up with a sub-niche or smaller niche within one of these. You want to become a specialist.
How to make money is a massive niche. You want to refine that down a lot more. There are literally thousands of ways to make money. You want to pick one of those ways. You could choose affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing works well because you can work blogging into it very nicely.
One of the best things I like about affiliate marketing it doesn’t take a lot of cash to get started. You can get started right away with a very low cost.
The training in getting started is included with the product. I look for products that have training already done for me. Why is this good? First, you will use this training for you so that you become completely familiar and confident with the product. Then take that same training and teach it to your customers.
I found this method one of the easiest and best ways to help other people grow and learn. most of the time I sent out an email that had a link to a live training that was already done for me. This was making me look like an authority in my niche (the expert).
The training I went through helped help build my confidence. As I gain confidence my passion for the product also grew.
Now I found myself easily coming up with content for my blog. The best part about this. Through my blog, I was able to help my prospects and customers also gain confidence and create a passion for what they do.
