Top Niches for Blogging & Earning Potential

I understand that there are small bloggers doing well in random niches.They would tell you to start a how to make money blog just like them.As a blogger, you have to be careful of being too realistic and racist about some topics you’ll found to be need of the world.

Niches that show people how to be better versions of themselves are the niches that you have to choose.

So, here we go. These are in no particular order except for the first one. There are tons of sub-niches within each one but they all fall under the bigger niche.


This is the obvious one. Many bloggers find themselves asking if they need to start a blog on making money.It’s a great question because all of the blogs that teach you how to make money seem to be run by people that only make money through those types of blogs.

This is not only the niche that can do well with making money but it’s one of the easiest.
Too many bloggers choose this niche and take the wrong approach. This mean that beginners can’t enter this niche. Let people follow you from day 1.

The catch is, is it better to do this with the how to make money blog?
You should do it with a secondary blog but that takes a bit more time. However, it gives you a bit more authority for when you are ready to launch your book or course.

Bloggers in this niche may include:

  • Pat Flynn
  • Melyssa Griffin
  • Amy Lynn Andrews
  • John Lee Dumas
  • Mariah Coz
  • Health and fitness

Health and fitness is one of those amazing niches because you can get ample traffic from it, but it can be difficult to make money if you don’t know what you are doing.
Starting off the best approach to go is with affiliate marketing.

  • Women’s fitness blog
  • Gym supplement blog
  • Yoga Blog
  • Healthy eating blog
  • Crossfit blog

A lot of blogs in this niche are usually run by teams of people or fitness trainers. Well, you can talk about dieting and yoga, while also talking about a fit meal to get desirable results.

  • Lifestyle

This one is the hardest to describe because it is so broad. Some bloggers take this niche to the extreme and think they can write about anything that involves their life but that isn’t the case.
For example, here are some of the sub-niches for this niche:

  • Gardening
  • Homesteading (huge)
  • Survival (huge)
  • Travel
  • Home/Outdoor Decor
  • Organization

These are not all of them but these are definitely ones that I would consider creating a blog in. Monetization methods for this niche are usually ads or printable.

  • How to succeed in life

Here’s the thing about the lifestyle niche. Most people screw up big time in it because they really believe they can just write about anything.That’s isn’t true.

To succeed in the lifestyle niche you have to either be solving a problem that a lot of people have (like, how to organize your home) or you need to write about a topic that people are irrationally passionate about.

There is no in-between if you want to see success early on.
To gain attraction you either need to solve problems or write about irrationally passionate topics.


  • Personal Development

Just like a lifestyle blog a personal development blog can be tough because many people don’t target a specific problem. They create a blog that is vague on its purpose beyond living room a better life.

With personal development, you need to be very specific about what you are helping someone with. For example, you might say:

I will help you overcome your depression.

Simply offering a better life doesn’t help out anyone unless you are specific about how you are going to help.

  • Food

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

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.

  • Personal Finance

This one can easily fall under how to make money depending on the approach a blog takes. Some personal finance sites teach you how to save money through frugal living while others show you how to make money with investing and side jobs.

The strategy here though is to cast a wide net around frugal living and then you show people that you can live frugally and make a ton of money at the same time.

Michelle Gardneris one of the larger bloggers in this space. The majority of her income comes from her affiliate link with Bluehost along with her affiliate marketing course.
There are other sites in this niche that range from frugal living to investing like, The Busy Budgeter.

  • Beauty & Fashion

So many of us (and it’s not just women) are fueling our fashion addiction online and the spending is only going to keep growing. Online shopping is easy, stress-free and definitely addictive.

When an industry has such huge potential for online sales, it only makes sense for bloggers to capitalize on that opportunity. Why not start a fashion blog as it’s definitely one of the best blog niches that make money.

Fashion can mean so many different things to different people. From clothes to accessories to makeup – there are a variety of sub-niches you could think about.

Here are some ideas:

  • Personal fashion blog
  • Makeup tutorial blog
  • Women’s shoes
  • Jewelry review blog
  • Men’s fashion blog

Fashion blogs have great affiliate marketing potential because most of the content is about products and this is really what affiliate marketing is all about, recommending products. With a fashion blog you can easily do this without being sleazy.

How to Make Money with a Fashion Blog

1. Makeup video tutorials – Do makeup video tutorials, recommend the products that you used during the tutorial and make money through affiliate links.

2. Review best accessories for summer – Write an article about the 10 best accessories for summer.
