3. Blogging Tutorial Niche

This is one of the most profitable blogging niche currently and competitive as well. A tutorial is a great source of learning. From a tutorial niche, by providing great tutorials about Blogging, SEO, Content marketing, Coding etc., you can help newbie a lot and in return, you can make a good number of loyal readers for your blog. These readers will help you to earn more from an affiliate.


Through blogging tutorial niche, though the earning through AdSense is a bit less as most of your readers would be bloggers, webmasters or the one who know about all these. So they easily know which is content and which is an ad. So these readers usually don't click on ads. But there is the great potential of earning through Affiliate, Sponsored review, and direct advertisements.

Blogging tutorials are also a big niche and if you want to focus on one particular area, you can target sub-niches like-

• SEO Tutorials
• Internet Marketing Tutorials
• Content Marketing guides
• Making money online guides etc.

As this niche is very profitable so competition is much and if you want to get success, you have to come up with unique contents and with the one which readers are looking for.

4. Business Niche

These types of blogs are very profitable for the upcoming entrepreneurs. By providing the relevant information like-

• How a newbie can start business
• How they can get success
• What are the risk and how to deal with those risks?
• How to get money to start business
• What is business plans etc.

By providing unique and real information, you can get lots of success in this niche. YourStory, StartUp Class, and onstartup etc. are blogs in the business niche.

To start a blog in this niche, you should be well prepared and should write only real methods which can help the growing youths.

The source of income in this niche is quite high and you can earn from many sources like AdSense, Direct Ads, Sponsored posts etc.


5. Insurance Niche

Insurance is one of the most profitable niches if we talk about earning from Google AdSense. Even you can get a CPC of $50-$60 from this niche. But at the same time, this is one of the highly competitive niches where you have to work really very hard to rank your blog.

So if you are ready to invest time and can work hard, this niche is for you. Again there are multiple sub-niches in Insurance niche-

• Health Insurance
• Automobile Insurance
• Property Insurance etc.

Google AdSense is the best source of income for these sub-niches even though you can earn from other different niches.

I am also working on one blog in Insurance niche and I will share my journey soon here.

6. Education Niche

Education is the basic necessity of any person. Since the evolution of technology, people tend to focus online for any education and so make this niche hot for online earning as well. You can start a blog on any sub-niche like-

• College and Universities’ information
• Courses information
• Syllabus and study materials.
• Tests and e-books etc.

This is one of the easiest niches to start. Here you can also do micro niche like a blog on the specific results. For example, Medical results, TISS results, engineering examination, etc.

7. Forex Trading

Forex trading is a trading currency from different countries against each other. For example, the currency of India is in INR and in the US it is Dollar. So the example of Forex trading would be buying dollars while selling rupee simultaneously.

Let me show you one example for better understanding. Like in 2014, one dollar was somewhere around 60 INR. If you could have bought 1000 dollars which have coasted you around 60k INR. Currently one dollar costs around 63 INR so if you have decided to sell those dollars, it's value will be 63k INR. So your profit is 3k INR. This is just an example.

The Marketer who does Forex trading keeps on finding the profitable market and currency and they easily earn $5k-$10k a month. Now let's get back to the point whether we should consider this as a blogging niche or not?

Forex trading is also good to start with but again this is a bit difficult to rank like Insurance due to huge competition. But if you are able to do so for a couple of keywords, you can easily earn a lot as the CPC for these keywords is quite high.

Also, you can get lots of advertisements and Sponsored post on such niche. So if you are all set to work hard, this is the niche for you.

8. Website Design, Domain & Hosting

To start any online business, you need primarily three things-

1. Web Design- This can be either hard coded or themes or customized themes.

2. A Domain Name- You can buy a domain name even for $0.99 or if you want to start with free, get a subdomain on BlogSpot/WordPress.

3. Hosting: To host a website/blog, you need space and hosting provide that space. You can even start with free hosting on Blogger/Wordpress.com


Now you can start a blog on this niche. But as this is a very big niche so you can take any sub-niche from it and can start. Few of those sub-niches may be

• Website Design Tutorials
• How to buy a good domain name/how to find expired domain etc.
• Best Hosting for websites/Best WordPress hosting etc.


These are some of the sub-niches in this niche and are highly profitable. But here I would like to suggest you is, if you are ranking for this niche, don't use AdSense. Because if you are getting clicks on the ad, you will earn somewhere around $0.5-$1.0, which is not much for a niche like hosting. Better use affiliate marketing here. Select any hosting company, Hostgator, BlueHost etc. and promote their offer. If you are making any sell, you will earn at least $50 per sale, which 50-100 times of an AdSense click.

9. Social Media

You will agree with me here! Social media has become the need of one's life. Right? Yes. Daily Billions of people access the different social network all across the globe. So now I am sure you can judge the potential of this super niche. This is a vast niche and you can target one or two social platforms and can start a blog. Like you can target Facebook, G+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit etc and can start a blog where you can post the details about these social platforms. The details may include (considering example of Facebook)

• How to best use Facebook
• How to promote your business through Facebook Free
• How to do paid advertisement through Facebook.
• How to earn from Facebook
• How to use Facebook API on blogs/websites
• How to make post viral on Facebook
• Tips and Tricks related to Facebook etc.

These are the kind of contents that you can post on such blogs. Again there are different ways to earn from these kinds of blogs like AdSense, Sponsored Posts, CPA Networks etc.


10. Listen to your Heart

Last but not the least. In fact the most important one! Listen to your heart. Because if anything is done from your heart, that must get success. Decide which is that area where you are good and start on that. No niche is bad. If work properly, every niche can earn good amount of money. Let me tell you how you can select a niche from your interest.
