7 Blog Niches With Six-Figure Income Potential

Your blog niche is crucial for your success. Blogging is lovely & lucrative; it attracts a lot of people into this business every day.

You may have noticed a lot of niche blogging sites that’ll help you start a blog. All you got to do is find good hosting, select a domain name, install WordPress and *BAM* you’re golden!

Starting a blog is REEEAAALLY easy nowadays. 

But making money from it? Well… not so much!

Introduction

Some influential business figures claim that to make money, you’ll have to target the right audience. 

50% of which is done when you choose a niche.”Blog Niches” is a thing that a lot of people are concerned about because a niche drives a specific audience group. Which converts to more income.

But conversely…. it is not the absolute necessity for you to niche down your website to selected topics. Take Chasingfoxes.com for example. What is their blog niche? I have no friggin idea. Their blog covers everything under the sun, which gets MILLIONS of page views every single month.

And yes, more pageviews = more $$$.

Sooo…Why choose blog niches?

As said above, Choosing specific blog niches increases your chances to attract the like-minded audience who are only looking for what you have to offer, Which in turn increases your blog income.

Though there are many popular opinions around the blogging world that say ” You should always choose a niche you’re really passionate about” OR “Select a niche that you truly love “, If you’ve decided to make your blog niched, then choosing one of the some selected niches might be your best bet to grow fast.

Because some specific blog niches DO perform better compared to other blog niches (Income wise).

If I had a Yoga Teaching Blog, making money from yoga will be pretty damn hard for me unless I start a yoga clothing line or a sell a meditation music series or yoga courses. Yoga is good for traffic but terrible for money, even if you’re using ads, MILLIONS of pageviews a month will be required to make a decent income.

But a Personal finance blog will thrive despite getting only a fraction of that traffic.

Yeah! Making money online is funny (and confusing) like that. But I’ll admit that Niche does play some part in money making.


So, Given below are the blog niches (in no specific order) that have the potential to make a six-figure income.


1) Food And Recipies

food and recipies blog niches

Market Value: 

From $16 billion up to $37 billion per year

Traffic Potential:

Over +100,000 unique visitors per month

Ideal For: 

Millennial moms: You love food, and you’re looking for creative inspiration for new twists on family recipes.

What Is It: 

This one is notoriously difficult to make money in because the audience isn’t really looking to buy things, they just want recipes.

The best approach is to build up a large audience and use ads to supplement the business. Probably the most well-known blog that does this is Food Blogger Pro, that teaches bloggers how to start a food blog. This goes back to niche #1 and the strategy that I talked about before of starting a blog in a different niche and then teaching people how to duplicate that success on your how to make money blog.

2) Personal Finances And Money Making

finance blog niches

Market Value: 

$17 billion per year

Traffic Potential:

+970,257 unique visitors per month (less than the niche before, but way easier to monetize)

Ideal For: 

People who have knowledge about topics like budgeting, banking, insurance, mortgages, investments, retirement planning, and tax and estate planning.

If you can imagine yourself teaching people about these topics, then this niche is for you.

What Is It: 

Personal Finance and Money blogs thrive on the internet because most of us suck at money matters. 

Frugal living, budgeting and expense management are those boring but useful things that help make our lives a little bit better. But the majority of people have no clue how to handle financial changes.  Thus, makes this niche evergreen.

Did you know that saving money, money making and other topics related to capital is one of the most significant blog niches on Pinterest? There are some massive group boards just for frugal living blogger.

Market Value: 

$66 billion per year

Traffic Potential:

+442,706 unique visitors per month

Ideal For: 

If these apply to you, this niche is for you:

  • You go to the gym sometimes
  • You follow a diet (or followed one in the past)
  • You want to live healthily
  • You like to workout
  • You could imagine yourself teaching people about health or fitness
  • You have knowledge about health or fitness

Not all of these need to apply in order to fit into this niche. Just 2 or 3 is enough.

What Is It: 

Health And Fitness is the most obvious one! I mean, who hasn’t in their life googled tips to lose weight, gain muscles or any fitness stuff in general.

We all do it.

Now, more than ever people are obsessed with fitness and getting in shape. Moreover, there is a veerryy low chance that you’ll go wrong in this niche, as because almost all the demographics in the world is into health and fitness.

Now when it comes to Monetization your blog, you can always rely on display ads, sponsored posts, fitness coaching, and online courses.

Fitness blogs can also be as popular as Food blogs, and both the niches unite when it comes to “Healthy – Cooking.”

4) Blogging And Entrepreneurship

blogging blog niches

Market Value: 

Estimated over $40 billion per year

Traffic Potential:

Estimated over 1,500,000 unique visitors per month (Highly profitable, this niche made many millionaires, but the thing is, it’s highly competitive, don’t start here if you haven’t blogged one year before in another niche!!!)

Ideal For: 

Bloggers who made a reasonable amount of money (usually if you earn more than $3,000 per month blogging you are eligible to talk and brag about your income :D).

Basically, if you feel like your achievements are well worth talking about, or you feel like I’m in a position where I can teach other people about how this game of blogging works, then go into this niche!

What Is It: 

Entrepreneurship blog niches are pretty popular. Take Forbes and Business Insider, for example; they are massive. Even Blogs based on blogging are an excellent example of an Entrepreneurial domain.

As the time is changing, new income methods are beating traditional ways of earning. Entrepreneurship blogs are just a small window to reflect those methods, and sure enough, the audience loves it.

These blogs are also a great source of motivation for a good number of people who are struggling to earn or are not happy with the way they are making their money.

5: Parenting

parenting blog niches

Market Value: 

$2.5 billion per year (Lower than the other niches)

Traffic Potential:

+79,051 unique visitors per month

Ideal For: 

People who have kids and went through all the struggle it takes to raise one. You would love to teach other people about this topic? Then this niche is for you.

What Is It:

Parenting blog niches Come to great help to those who are going to be parents, new parents as well as parents with teenage kids. And then again when the kids become parents.

The cycle goes ON and ON.

Parenting is no joke, Being a parent is a hard task to do (which lasts for many years). I know because I am a son, and I was such a brat around the house that thinking about that now makes me realize

HOW MY PARENTS EVEN TOLERATED ME? Ughhh

Besides that, Parents are always on the internet searching for the tips and guides to know what is best for their kids, which food is healthy during their growth, and educational activities for their kids. And these web searches is what makes parenting blogs win. 

And with such search terms, there are potentially thousands to millions to be made with affiliate marketing just by selling some guides, tips or games which parents think are might be useful to their kids.

6: Travel

travel blog niches

Market Value: 

Estimated +$50 billion per year

Traffic Potential:

65,070 unique visitors per month

Ideal For: 

People who love to talk about traveling or anything related to that (for ex. travel insurance, best travel places, or talking about stories you had while traveling). If these sound like you, then this niche is just waiting for you-

What Is It:

I want to travel.

My friends want to travel.

Most of my family wants to travel.

WHO DOESN’T WANT TO TRAAAAAAVEL?

And for people with a job, these travel blogs is a great escape from their nine to five lifestyle. 

According to statistia.com in 2016 the global revenue generated by the traveling industry including transportation, accommodation, entertainment, and attractions was 7.6 Trillion dollar.

A significant benefit of being a travel bloggers is that, if you have a huge blog following, then certain companies will offer you to stay in their hotels and let you travel for free (or with a significant discount) if you share positive experiences about the hotel and services to your audience.

Frequently, what happens when we plan to travel somewhere?

We Google Zillion of things. Where is the best destination to travel, how to book cheap tickets, OK hotels, food, safety, attractions in that place, etc.? Travel bloggers provide in-depth knowledge to questions like these, the do’s and won’t’s, etc.

Though unlike most of the other blog niches, you HAVE to go and travel places to fill up your blog content, you can’t use your imagination. 

Yes! You have to make a beforehand investment for your traveling plans even before you start your blog. This very reason makes a lot of newbie bloggers NOT to choose “Travel” as their primary niche.

7: Lifestyle

lifestyle blog niches

Market Value: 

Estimated +$28 billion per year

Traffic Potential:

+2,842,720 unique visitors per month

Ideal For: 

People who love to talk about topics like Self-confidence, college kids, pet lovers, style, inspiration, gardening, etc.

What Is It:

Lifestyle blog Niches are MASSIVE regarding content and area of topics it covers.  A lifestyle blog is a blog that may have many different sub-topics. These blogs generally target one type of demographic – Self-confidence, college kids, pet lovers, style, inspiration, gardening, etc.

Or one can make their blog a combination of many subtopics like the ones mentioned before. Because of this idea, some bloggers think you can’t generate an income with a multi-topic blog which is not true at all.

For example:

Ashli from The Million Dollar Mama covers about 8 Topics in her blog – from recipes to blogging to travel and more. And she makes around $5000 just from Amazon by referring people.

One of the Biggest Advantage of Choosing a lifestyle blog is that you will NEVER run out of topics to write about. This very fact is the reason why bloggers can write more consistently without repeating the same topic over and over.

Demographic (Target customer): 


Niche 8,9,10,11 can be found here:


Conclusion

I just sorted all the blog niches by traffic potential (Highest to lowest) to help you decide.

Choosing one of the above blog niches might be your best bet if you want to grow fast. But, The mentioned blog niches above and all the popular blog niches present out there have one thing in common, which is-

They all make enough money to let bloggers leave their jobs and go FULL-TIME as a Blogger. Which is pretty amazing!
