Most profitable Internet marketing businesses are those that make money online without having any inventory at all. Blogs are great forums for those who create income streams from; pay-per-click, pay-per-lead, Google Adsense and affiliate programs such as the Empower Network and Project A.W.O.L.
Of course the big challenge is to come up with an idea that is going to be a popular money-maker. Often that idea is right in front of you.
Start By Writing About What You Know
If you are brainstorming the writing of a new blog then it sometimes is well worth your while to just take a look around and examine what is new or interesting in your own daily life. This type of brainstorming can sometimes turn up a topic that is guaranteed to make you online money.
To come up with a blog that everyone can relate to start thinking about your hobbies, interests, what your family members are interested in and anything that you are fascinated by.
If you have children give a thought or two to what interests or concerns them and their hobbies. What are your neighbors interested in? What are their hobbies and what do they seem to be concerned about when it comes to their home and family life.
You can also find blogging ideas from watching television or watching the news. Surf online for tidbits about what people are talking about and see if there is a product around that relates to their interests.
Make A List of Good Ideas
Basic brainstorming involves making a list of all of the general, broad-based ideas that you can come up with and then start making even more associations about those topic areas in your mind. This is how you can find a profitable online money making niche.
The idea is to take something common and general and then take that thing and narrow it down until you find a niche.
For instance you might have the words “Empower Network” on your list. Possibilities for niche sites around this topic might be internet marketing, blog marketing, affiliate marketing, search engine optimization and other topics.
The ultimate objective of coming up with this list is to come up with twenty or thirty general ideas and then see how far you can go with it by looking up keywords that relate to it. If they are keywords and topics that get a lot of hits then it is very likely you have found an excellent niche to write about.
Only Write About What Interests You
If you want to create an authentic long-term online money-making blog then you better be excited about what you are writing about. You need to be adding fresh new content to it daily. This is far easier to do every day if actually adding content to it is a labor of love.
There is one caveat here and that is that if your passion is something SO niche that most people can not relate e.g. Army uniforms from WWII…. then your blog will probably not be as profitable as it could otherwise be, if you had more general content. So I think the thing to do in such a situation would be to straddle both worlds. Have your blog cater to your niche, but include information and posts of a more general nature. This could help bring you blog traffic, could introduce your niche interest to a new set of people and could ultimately still bring you those sales you are hoping for.
