How to Create a Profitable Niche Blog Within 1 Day
Creating profitable niche blogs are now widely used by online marketers as a way to promote their online businesses. Niche marketing has long been hailed by small-time affiliates and even gurus as the way to profit. Undiscovered niches offer little competition and are easier to conquer and definitely ideal for everyone. This article offers some quick steps to creating a profitable niche blog within one day. Imagine how many of these sites can you create in a month and how much you can profit from that!
Step 1 – Finding a Good Niche and Products
Brainstorm a few ideas, and dig deep into each of the ideas with keyword research tools like Overture, WordTracker and NicheBot Classic. Your goal is to find one with decent number of searches ie there must be sufficient demand.
Target one with a search count above 300 at Overture. Once you find some of these ideas, head to do an allintitle search at Google. Type "allintitle: yourkeyword" into the search box and start it rolling. If the number of search results is lower than 500 to 700, then you have hit the jackpot. We have found our target niche.
Next, it is time to search for a product to promote as an affiliate. If you already have a product with private label rights or resell rights collecting dusk in your hard drive, you may sell these on your blog. Otherwise, head to the affiliate marketplaces like ClickBank, Commission Junction and so on. Another quick tip is to Google "yourniche + affiliate program" to find a suitable affiliate product to promote.
Step 2 – Choosing a Blogging Platform
There are dozens of blogs you can use, but I would advise you to use either Blogger or WordPress. Both have its advantages. Blogger is very simple to use and ideal for first time bloggers. Set up does not take you more than 1 hour and you have a blog ready to go. But do not expect too many features. WordPress on the other hand can offer you a lot more features and there are powerful plug-ins you can find online quite easily.
Name your blog after the target keyword to aim well in the search engines. For example, if your niche keyword is "how to create a blog", then name your blog as howtocreateablog.blogspot.com.
Use nice graphics from some of the free graphics depositories or stock photo sites like Stock Vault, Every Stock Photo, PublicDomain Photos, and so on to decorate your niche blog. If your affiliate program provides great looking banners or book covers, use them!
Step 3 – Creating Content for your Niche Blog
You need good unique content for your blog. Go to Google and search. Take notes at the top 10 websites listed in the search results. Look for at least 6 useful key points.
Now, split the 3 key points into 2. Use each group of 3 to create a single blog post in your own words. Each blog post should contain at least 150 to 200 words and contain the affiliate link to your product. Weave the links into your content so that it looks natural. Ok, now you have your posts ready.
Post the first post to your blog, an introduction post so it may start like "Hello and welcome to my …… blah blah". Post the subsequent 2 posts at 4 to 5 hour intervals.
Step 4 – Promote Your Blog!
You are now ready to drive tons of traffic to your niche blog! Now, after each post you put on your blog, ping it at Pingomatic. This will announce it to the search engines to visit your site.
You want to also bookmark your posts at the top social bookmarking sites such as Del.icio.us, Stumbleupon, Digg and so on.
Do not forget to find a few blogs related to your niche through Google and start commenting on some of their posts. Target those with a high Page Rank and ranking well in the search engines. Also do the same at related forums.
Finally, write an article and post it to GoArticles and EzineArticles. And wait for targeted traffic and sales to start rolling from Day One. Repeat the traffic driving techniques at least once a week and your Page Rank and sales will grow!
