Frequently Asked Questions
How do I find a niche for blogging?
Finding a niche for a blog, online business or store has the same process. The first area is passion. There are people that start businesses that they are not passionate about but are they actually happy building a blog or business that they are not passionate about?
When you are passionate about something you definitely enjoy it more.
The second area is skills. What are you good at? What are you knowledgeable about. This doesn’t mean you have to be a complete expert on something —it just means you have to have skills that you can help people by sharing what you know
You have to find the bottom line for what you are passionate about, skilled in and what people actually want.
Is my niche too small?
Establishing whether your market is too small is relatively easy. You don’t want your niche to be too small ie less than 800 searches per month on the main keyword. You want it to be big enough for your product or service that you can sustain a business. Anything above 30,000 searches a month is good.
A narrow niche may seem like a good idea but sometimes it cannot sustain the traffic. Also with narrow niches you run out things to say or to promote, whereas going slightly broader may be better.
Following the video training will help you establish whether your market is sustainable.

I’ve been asked a lot in the last few weeks “how can I make money online without spending money?”. Online surveys is my suggestion and to take the guess work of finding a legitimate survey site I have compiled my list of sites you can join and start today.
Firstly why do you get paid for doing surveys? Companies pay agencies to do research on their brands to find out consumer buying patterns, what the market wants and whether their brand is getting the right message to it’s consumers plus much more.
When you join a survey company you will have to enter in your details about where you live, age, occupation etc. Survey companies will choose your surveys based on your demographics.
Each survey will advise you how long it will take, how much it pays (may be dollars,points or rewards payment) and may ask a few qualifying questions. You can then decide whether you accept to do the survey or not.
Don’t just stick to one survey site. It is better to join a lot of survey sites, that way you can pick and choose this higher paying surveys and maximise your time.
