When I started internet marketing (now called “blogging”) many, MANY years ago, I started using ALL free methods.

Tools, training, even making one simple web page was much harder back then… and much more expensive.

We didn’t have cheap blog hosting like this back then.

Plus, I was B-R-O-K-E…lol!

Even though it was harder back then, I learned SO much that I still use to this very day.

Making money online using all low-cost to NO-cost methods can cause you to get creative in your marketing efforts. It also forces you to come up with a system that is not only profitable, but duplicable so you can recreate the process over and over again. I have found that niche blogging is at the heart of my system and it has not only proven to be quite profitable, but it has become super easy for me to recreate time after time.

What is a Niche Blog?

A niche blog is a simple blog (that can be a free blog) that has content and monetizing actions based on one topic, or “niche”. If the niche blog is about gardening, all the content will be geared towards the reader who is looking for gardening information – and you won’t start posting about playstation games or BMWs. A niche blog stays on topic. It is an “authority” site on a given topic.


How To Pick a Niche For YOUR Blog

Why Use a Niche Blog?

If you are making money online using all free and low-cost methods, you most likely do not have your own web site. However, internet marketing strategies require that you have a “landing page” that is NOT an affiliate site. Your niche blog is the heart of your affiliate marketing efforts. This is where your Pinterest pins will lead viewers, your guest post bio boxes will point to, your Facebook marketing will point to, and all the other great and FREE methods of advertising will direct to. This is where your visitors…your buyers LAND. Got it?

What Should be on Every Niche Blog?

Your niche blog is not only your “landing page”, it also needs to be your “squeeze page”. A squeeze page is where your build your list. There should be an opt-in box to join your free newsletter, get a free ebook or ecourse, or something of value to the reader in exchange for their name and email address. The list – you must build your list for every niche you work in. This way, when a viewer leaves your blog, you can still have contact with them – and build a relationship with them.
