2020 is almost upon us, but before you panic, there’s still time to learn the best niche blog ideas that will earn you money in 2020.
I don’t know about you, but 2019 has completely flown by me. I can’t believe I’m writing this guide with only two months left of the year.
Without a high earning potential, a blog idea will stay just that, an idea.
Don’t panic though! There is still plenty of time to learn how to create a blog and develop a market strategy.
Listen, before I start a new blog I always research what products and markets are popular and have the potential to sell like hotcakes 🔥🎂. Without a high earning potential, a blog idea isn’t going to survive.
There are various reasons why a blog will not survive without an income; the biggest being that you’re not going to write for free. Sure, some people write to relax or as a hobby. And there is always going to be a small percentage of people who do things for free. However, hosting a website costs money, let alone the time you’re putting into your writing.
You’d like to see something in return, wouldn’t you?
How I Picked Profitable Niche Blog Ideas for 2020
If you are interested in starting a blog for profit, blog topic research is one of the most (if not THE most) important steps. It can make or break your blogging career and dash any dreams you have of generating income from a blog.
Therefore, I want to kickstart your research by sharing my own personal list of profitable niche blog ideas for 2020 that are actually going to generate income for you in 2020.
However, there’s something you need to understand before I share my list…
It’s really important that I communicate my thought process behind what went into creating this list so you understand what niches I’m absolutely not interested in.
I’m talking about niche blog ideas that:
- Contain products in an already saturated market.
- Are fads that are overhyped.
- Were very popular in 2019.
- Have a high barrier to entry.
- Aren’t a high level, broad topic, e.g. Food.
I want to reiterate for clarity. The criteria you just read is my own personal guideline for niche blog ideas that will NOT be profitable or successful in 2020.
If you’re like me, you’ve likely read the countless articles published at the end of last year that outlined the top blog niches to start in 2019.
What did you notice?
What I noticed was that 99% of those lists contained exactly the same niche blog ideas.
If they really were that niche, how did every author/blogger know about them?
I should really change the title of this list to 5 Realistic But Also Profitable Blog Niches That Will Make Money in 2020. Unfortunately, people aren’t interested in realistic ideas. Lucky for you, you’ve stumbled upon the most realistic blog niche list on the internet.
Ok, enough chit-chat. Let’s begin!
1. Smart speakers for Seniors (The Elderly)
Do me a favor. Open Google and enter the term “smart speaker”. Look at the top results. They’re all general tech websites or e-commerce stores. That’s bad. It’s bad for the consumer.
However, it’s good if you want to create a profitable blog.
When it comes to family, consumers want unbiased, educated reviews for products. They won’t trust what’s written by big e-commerce companies who are clearly trying to push sales. So I ask you, where are the small, personal smart speaker blogs that people can depend on to get an educated, unbiased review? Nowhere!
I think it’s such a good idea that I was so close to starting my own smart speaker blog. I still have the domain! (smartspeakerguide.com).
The potential for this topic is huge. If you’re genuinely interested in smart speakers and technology, I strongly believe you could turn this topic into a success. You don’t need to stop at the smart speakers themselves, either. You’ve got the best smart speaker apps for the elderly.
Amazon also offers one of the highest affiliate payouts for their smart speaker products. Plus, they’re some of the best smart speakers on the market as they’ve invested heavily in them.
2. Board Games for Large Groups
X player board games. No, not literally X. Replace X with a number (the bigger the better with this one, obviously).
4 player board games, 8 player board games, 10 player board games. Whatever the number, board games are no longer solely the hobby of millions of introverted geeks.
They’re more popular than ever (Thanks to cards against humanity), and we can’t get enough of them!
Cards against humanity and the Jack Box Games franchise have opened our eyes up to the fun that can be had at playing board games in large groups. There’s always that one friend who wants to bring an adult-rated board game to a large party. However, there’s no blog out there that focuses on this niche blog topic.
3. Wallet Phone Cases
Wallet phone cases are becoming more and more popular as jeans shrink in size (I’m kidding, but there could be a correlation there).
This niche blog topic is ripe for the taking. At the time of writing this, there are zero blogs out there that focus on this topic, and therefore the money-making potential is huge.
Have you looked at how many wallet phone cases there are nowadays? Jump on Amazon and look at how many wallet phone cases they sell.
You have an endless supply of products in which to write product reviews or even create lists of the best wallet phone cases. People are wising up to the fact that these cases are convenient. That means that they’re only going to get more popular in 2020.
So there we have it. Three niche blog ideas that I’ve discovered in my extensive research into keywords and profitable blog ideas. Run with any or all of these ideas if you want to. If you do, I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
Also, If you’ve discovered a profitable blog niche and don’t mind sharing, leave a comment below! I’d love to hear what you’re all working on.
