Made a pact with yourself to up your game in 2020?
Start with a great niche.
Whether you’re a blogger, an affiliate marketer, an SEO, or an eCommerce guru (or all four) – you need to carve out your own little territory on the digital globe. Finding a profitable niche that you can monetize isn’t something that happens overnight. Amazon, Google Trends, social media, research white papers – there are plenty of places to look. Take advantage of the online marketplace to help guide your digital career.
A niche will make you more profitable and more successful as an online entrepreneur – here’s how you can find yours.
The simplest guide to choosing a perfect niche for blogging in 2020
1. Do Proper Research to Find the Niche
The #1 reason I put research in the first place in the list is because I know how important it is when choosing a niche for your website.

- What kind of business you want to do? What is your dream business?
Take a notepad or memo function on your smartphone and write down anything that comes to mind. So that we can narrow down the list in just a moment.

You can do competitor research or you can also read top blogs (in your industry) to find out whether there are any income reports shared by bloggers. That’s the
