When you are getting started with Affiliate Marketing one of your first tasks is to decide what it is that you want to blog about. There are three typical ways to determine what it is you would like to work on.
What do you Love?
The most frequent advice that you will receive when you are talking to others about how to start is to do something you love. There are several things that make this a good choice. If you already like your topic, it will not be difficult for you to write lots of good content on it. You are interested in the topic so it won’t feel like work. Your writing will be inspired and your writing will reflect your excitement and exuberance.
What do you Know?
Your next choice would be to choose something you have experience with. If you have been working at one thing all of your life, you have built up a huge knowledge base. You can use this to make your blog authoritative and focused on your current area of experience. The drawback with this is if you have been working in this field all day, you may not want to spend additional time every night writing and thinking about it.
What do you want to Learn?
The last classic niche to choose is something that you would like to learn. You are the perfect example of the customer. As you start to blog about your topic you can include the steps that you take to become the expert in your chosen field. Eventually, you will even convince yourself that you are in fact one of the leaders in your topic. This is however after you immerse yourself in the subject and learn everything that you can possibly learn as you share your journey to becoming a complete expert on your chosen topic.
What is your Ultimate Dream?
There is one other possible avenue that you could take.
Dare to Dream!
Part of what makes good copy is the ability to expand your horizons. Think of something that you have always wanted to do. Are you a stay at home mom that has always wanted to jump out of a plane? Maybe you want to climb to the top of the world or dive the reefs off of Cabo San Lucas? Can you follow someone that is a mountain climber, learn how to do this in the virtual world? If you would like to learn all you need about the various dive adventures in the world. Do you think others might enjoy your virtual travels? Even better, once you have narrowed down the absolute best dive venues in the world, wouldn’t your readers love to join you as you make your first dive trip and document it for them. The next thing you know, dive shops and trip planners are calling you to advertise their wares on your site and then, your site is the place to go to plan their ultimate dive adventure.
