8 Best Blog Niches That Drive Traffic And Make Money

How To Making Money

Probably don't really need to say a lot about this niche it speaks for itself. It's the niche I am in, giving bloggers the tools and path to make money blogging. Although, I have added it to my main business where I create websites and blogs for clients, you could definitely use this as a great niche. In fact you may see a lot of blogs in various niches making money offering this advise. 

Other sub-niches in the How to make money niche could be Forex Trading, Social Media, Cryptocurrency, Video marketing.

Personal Finance

The personal finance niche is massive, and could easily overlap into the how to make money niche. Some bloggers adopt the opposite approach and create their blogs about frugal living and how to save money. Let's face it we all love ideas on saving money, why spend more than you need to hey...

If you use this niche you can give away frugal tips and then show people how they can make money doing the same.

Health & Fitness

An amazing niche for traffic as most people would like to be healthier and fitter than they already are. It can be aimed across every audience, men, women, kids, the over 50's. A great idea would be to maybe niche down on one of these audiences.

Monetizing can be tricky on this niche, so I would look at affiliate marketing to start with. If you are a personal trainer, yoga teacher or something similar then your own products and courses would be additional income streams you could add once you have a good following. 

Many bloggers merge this niche with our next niche diet and nutrition and why not the two go hand in hand.

Diet & Nutrition

Beware of this niche as choosing just food can be difficult to monetize as people are just looking for recipes and not really looking to buy. Traffic and building an audience can be easier though as soon many people are looking for ideas. It's always vital to build an email list whatever blog your start but even more so in the food niche.

You could also show people how to start a food blog and create another income stream in the make money niche too.

Diets on the other hand has a great monetizing side, but competition is high, so niching down is probably the best way to go.

Beauty & Fashion

This niche is more reliant on getting yourself known and being seen using platforms such as Youtube and Instagram. The writing of lengthy blog posts are not needed so much in this niche, as images tell the story. 

Most of these blogs tend to develop into lifestyle blogs as the owners share their lives around this niche.

The lifestyle model is one of the most diverse blog niches as it can vary on the sub niches that a certain blog can cover. 

Don't however think of lifestyle as just your day to day life... may find that harder to do. Incorporate sub-niches that are within your life. Some of these could be :-

  • Parenting
  • Food
  • Family Finances
  • Hobbies

For a lifestyle blog to be successful you still have to be solving a problem that your readers may have for example how to keep your house tidy, how to cook on a shoestring budget... you get the idea. The best way to monetize lifestyle blogs is through ads and showing people how to start their own  blog.

Personal Development

A huge niche this one and one of my favorites who doesn't want to be better than you were today. Okay maybe not everyone but still one of the top blog niches to be in. Works best if you niche down and again look at solving issues that people have :-

Examples could be - Helping people overcome the fear of anxiety or providing goal setting so you can become more productive.
