The Perfect Market
If you’re new to internet marketing, then it’s time to learn about niches. What are niches, you ask?
- They’re a way of grouping audiences or potential customers into specific and relevant categories.
- This way you can target a certain group of people with your content and offer them a special deal or discount. (Check out our blog’s topic directory to see some niches we specialize in)
- You can even create different brands or websites for each niche. That way you can target the right audience with each piece of content you post.
The perfect market for your product or service doesn’t mean it will be easy to get. And it certainly doesn’t mean you should discount the importance of hard work or good execution. But if you want to make money with Monsoon Traffic, then you need to consider the right niche, build a great product, and become an expert in that niche.
How To Make Money With Monsoon Traffic
Let’s get serious for a second. No one is an expert in every subject, and I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about. (If you don’t, then please stop reading and come back when you’re feeling a little more prepared.)
There is no such thing as a free ride in this world. We’re all slaves to some extent, since we have to work to eat. But that doesn’t mean we have to like it. (Unless you’re a drug lord or a vampire.)
You may have found your way here because you are looking for the easiest way to make money. (Or maybe you found a way here and you’re just following the money.) It’s time to decide. Are you ready to get to the good stuff or do you need more time to prepare?
1. Find Your Niche
As we’ve established, niches are the perfect way to group audiences or potential customers into specific and relevant categories. (Unless you’re targeting the drug lords or vampires, in which case you’re already probably screwed.)
Take a few minutes and think about what you currently like doing, or what you want to be doing in the next few months. (Or if you’re feeling extra adventurous, what you want to be doing in the next year.)
Then, take a look at your existing hobbies and interests. (You can find many helpful tools online to help you with this, such as Google Forms or SurveyMonkey.)
You’re bound to have a few things in common with hundreds of thousands of other people. (Unless you’re a drug lord or vampire.)
If you’re looking for quick money, then it would be best to find a niche that is currently in demand. (This is called a ‘hot’ niche.)
For example, if you’re an avid reader, then it would be smart to find an ebook niche. Or if you like to cook, then consider a food blog. (There are dozens of niches in this arena, all of which can be used to generate revenue.)
Once you find your niche, make sure you do your research. Learn as much as you can about the topic, and dive into blogging about it. (You can also use your skills to create useful YouTube videos and Instagram stories about the subject.)
2. Build A Product
To start generating revenue, you need to have a product to offer. (This is called ‘launching a product.’)
For example, if you’re blogging about food, then you might decide to create a cookbook. If you’re a travel lover, then you could create a travel guide. (There are dozens of money-making products out there, all of which have the potential to earn you income.)
Building a product doesn’t have to be difficult. (It just needs to be unique enough.)
Thankfully, the internet makes creating products easier than ever. (Although, it can also make them much more accessible to everyone.)
Since the beginning of time, entrepreneurs and startup founders have turned to the internet to find inspiration, resources, and, most importantly, customers. (Who needs customers when you’ve got AdWords?)
The internet is an amazing place, and in the same way that Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook have changed the way we communicate and interact with one another, so too has the internet changed the way we find products and create businesses.
You can use tools like Google Trends to easily find highly profitable niches, and once you’ve found one, all you need to do is setup a blog around it. (Make sure to read our blog’s tips on how to get started.)
3. Create Content That Is Useful
To continue creating revenue, you need to have high-quality content that is both free and valuable. (This is called ‘constructive content.’)
Just like a chef needs to create recipes that make people want to come back for more, or a travel guide needs to include interesting and valuable information about a destination, so too does a content creator need to provide their readers with content that is both useful and inspiring.
When someone comes across your content, whether they’re reading a blog post, watching a video, or going through a digital guide, they’ll have a desire to learn more about your topic. (No surprise there.)
Whether you’re writing on a travel blog or a food blog, make sure that your content is interesting and offers value. (Don’t just throw up some recipes or travel experiences. Put thought into your content and make it special.)
To build trust and credibility with your audience, you should include credentials or a bio detailing your expertise in your niche. (People want to learn more about a topic or industry they’re interested in, so including your credentials will make them feel more comfortable.)
4. Use SEO To Get More Views & More Clients
To get your content in front of the right audience, you need to optimize it for the search engines. (This is called ‘search engine optimization.’)
Include keywords in your content, and make sure to use the right synonyms and alternative words for the best results. (Think of a time when you searched for a product or service online and the results came up but the words you used didn’t match exactly what you were looking for?)
For example, if you’ve got a travel blog and you’re focusing on Greece, then including the word ‘gulp’ in your content might help people find your content when they’re searching for Greek travel blogs. (Did you know that some Google search results can appear randomly on the first page? It’s true.)
To get noticed, create content that is interesting and provides value, and use SEO to help your content reach the right audience. (Did you know that people who use SEO often see an increase in traffic of up to 500% within a year?)
5. Monetise Your Content
Once you’ve found your niche and started creating content, the fun really starts. Once you’ve got a decent amount of content, it’s time to start making money. (This is called ‘monetising your content.’)
You can put ads on your site, create affiliate products where you promote another company’s products, or use a third-party affiliate platform like WooCommerce to create affiliate products.
Choose one or two of the above, and start generating revenue today.
