Are you a niche marketer? Niche topics in online marketing will build your business quickly. Coming up with fresh ideas for new content in your niche topics is an ongoing task. Years ago I challenged myself to come up with a new idea every day for one hundred days, and that list of one hundred questions and thoughts kept my business going strong during the first year. I would encourage you to do the same thing to build your online business.
For example, if you niche is yoga and meditation, some ideas you might add to your list could be:
- Why is yoga so popular these days?
- The connection between the practice of yoga and daily meditation
- Can you do yoga at home, or is it better to go to a studio or class?
- Types of clothing, mats, and other accessories
- Which types of music/affirmations are best for meditation?
These are just a few ideas for niche topics. You can see that the list is endless, and that you could easily come up with ideas every single day. The idea is to make this a part of your daily schedule so that creating new, fresh content is never an issue.
People around you will make this much easier. I have found that talking to someone who is not familiar with my niche topic generates even more ideas. Ask a friend or family member to spend fifteen minutes with you for this. Keep your notebook close at hand and just start talking about your topic. Then have then ask you questions about any part of it they do not understand or want to know more about. You will love how many ideas you are able to add to your list.
Now it’s time to turn each one into a piece of content for your business. I like to begin by writing an article on each one. Then I choose the best and most interesting ideas and go on to write a blog post about those. Finally I pick an area of my niche to write a short report on, using some of my previously written articles and blog posts as part of this report.
Think about using different formats as well. You could also create short videos and audio recordings so that your target market will get to know you better. Anything you can do right now to allow people to connect with you and build a relationship will mean a lot for years to come.
Start your list of a hundred ideas and questions on your niche topic and see just how far you can take it when it comes to creating content. This will build your credibility and visibility and increase your bottom line.
Share a few of your ideas here so that we can brainstorm as a group. My most recent niche topic is about the tools we need to get started online. I am thinking of questions and ideas around hosting, domains, keywords, WordPress blogs, and autoresponders. What else should I add to my list?
