The Most Profitable Niches
Lesson 11 Module 2
The most popular niches all have something in common: they focus on improving peoples’ lives. If your niche can help someone improve their life, you can make money with it.
Here are the basic needs of human beings, according to psychologist Abraham Maslow.
MASLOW'S HIERARCHY OF NEEDS
If your blog fulfills one of these needs, it will make money.
Whether it’s with their health, their relationships or with their finances, the most popular niches are all about self improvement.
Keeping these needs in mind, here are some popular niches to give you an idea of what you can blog about:
Live longer and look better doing it. Who wouldn't want that? Health is a mega-niche that includes hundreds of smaller niches - all very profitable. Main sub-niches include fitness, weight loss and diets.
Here are some examples of some health blogs so you can see how they make money.
- 2MAKING MONEY
You'll be hard-pressed finding someone who isn't interested in making more money - especially online. Helping people set up or grow an online business is a huge market. Sub-niches include blogging, social media, web design, business coaching, affiliate marketing and e-commerce.
Travel blogs help others to live their best life. The best ways of making money with travel blogs are paid sponsorships, digital products (ebooks and courses) and display ads.

Managing your money isn't taught in our schools. The result is a nation of people in debt. Personal finance bloggers have stepped in to bridge the gap, educating readers on topics such as frugal living, credit card debt and investing.
Here are some bloggers making a killing by helping people with their finances.
A food blog can generate massive traffic. But it can be difficult to sell something to users just looking for recipes. So most food bloggers rely on ads to make money.
"Mom blogs" are very popular and get tons of traffic from Pinterest. Most of these sites monetize via display ads.
Lifestyle blogs encompass lots of different topics such as: beauty & fashion, DIY, home decor, organization and homesteading.
