Finding the right Niche to start a new blog is tough.
Today I’m going to give you a list of Micro Niche Ideas that you can review and test to see if they work for you.
To get a basic overview of how to choose a Niche, check out the video below before you start reading my post.

Understanding a Niche
Now that you have checked out the video, I hope you understand a bit more about how to go about picking the right Niche.
The key points for you to understand are as follows:
- Think about what you love.
- Pick something you are passionate about.
- It needs to make money.
- You can generate low competition traffic.
So let’s break these points down further.
Thinking about what you love will always help. Imagine going for a Niche that you think generates a ton of money. All well and good, but what are you going to write about consistently?
Picking something you are passionate about will help. The reason for this is that if you love it, chances are you will consistently write about it. Just picking any old Niche will probably result in you losing interest over time.
As it says in the video, not all niche markets make money so make sure yours can. You might think you have found something that makes loads of money, but if there is loads of competition or you need a lot of traffic to your website you will probably struggle.
Make sure you can generate traffic with low competition keywords. For example, if you went for something like Web Hosting you might just struggle.

Finding the Right Niche
With the points outlined above, you can start thinking about your Niche.
I don’t know your passion, I don’t know what you love, so I can’t tell you what Niche you should use.
What I am going to do is outline the top Niche markets, but give you some Micro Niches ideas within that market that should be able to make money and generate decent traffic through the right keyword research by you.
For example, if you are passionate about Camping, that Niche is huge. So a Micro Niche might be something like Pop-Up Tents – I hope this makes sense.
So, lets get started with the categories. As I said, I will outline the main Niche and then drill down to the Micro Niche – maybe theres one in there for you.
The Fitness Niche
As you probably already know, the Fitness industry is huge and just keeps on growing.
But the good thing about being huge means there are opportunities. I don’t mean going out and trying to compete with the big boys with high competition keywords.
What I mean is that with it being such a big field, there are huge opportunities to find low competitive, good traffic niches within this field.
Who doesn’t want to get fit or lose weight right! And there are always new ways and ideas in doing this.
Here is a list of micro niche ideas within the Fitness market.

- Yoga Clothing – low competition, great SEO, lots of traffic
- Strength Training Equipment

Weight Loss Niche
Like the fitness niche, the weight loss market is huge and there is a lot of scope for low competitive niche ideas.
The only watch out here is to be careful what you promote – I believe there are a lot of scams out there because people are desperate to lose weight and some of them are taken for a ride.
If you are going down this route, please make sure what you do is offering value and don’t rip people off.
