Q: I’m a writer and struggling with finding my online niche. Do you have any suggestions on how to do this?
A: The world is wide open to you as a writer! You don’t need to find a niche – you have one already. Writing. You can sell your services at writing sites, you can freelance. You can write a set of articles in a specific niche that fascinates you (and that you want to learn more about) and sell those articles as “PLR articles.”
If you DO want to find a niche you have a couple of choices. You can choose a niche you want to learn about and write articles, ebooks, reports, etc on that topic.
OR you can choose to write for people within a specific niche. For example, if you love gardening, you can specialize in writing articles for marketers in the gardening niche. Again, you can do these on a custom basis – or write generic articles that you sell to people in that niche.
You could create a “do it yourself” ready-made newsletter. So each month you would create a set of 15 articles. Then each subscriber to your service could choose the 10 articles they want in their newsletter and you could assemble and deliver it to them, ready to distribute. It would be customized for them and their business.
As I said, with writing skills you have unlimited possibilities. Just get your mind working – and forget that you “need a niche.” You just need to figure out what you enjoy doing – and make money with that!
And if you can’t decide, then at least put up a website advertising your writing – and make money while you’re waiting for inspiration.
