Learning how to create a blog that will make you money is not rocket science. In fact the process is straight forward and rather simple. You see any successful business blogs you find on the internet generally all have one thing in common: they're all built upon diligent market research.

If you expect to make money blogging you absolutely need to devote some time to the research you do when selecting your niche market first. As I've said this is not rocket science although it will require some patience on your part if you are up to it.

For the sake of this article we will focus on the 3 key components you'll want in any niche you select if you intend to make money.

Passion for the Topic

Firstly you'll want to have a personal interest in the topic on which you are blogging. Although having a personal interest in your topic is not necessary to make money blogging, it will definitely make thing easier for you.

Maintaining a blog requires a consistent effort on your part to supply fresh content. A personal interest or enthusiasm in the subject would make your efforts seem less like work. It would also supply the motivation you'll need to stay up to date on your subject matter giving your content the quality your readers will appreciate.


Blogging requires a dedication by the blog owner in order for the blog to achieve and maintain a level of popularity. The niche and/or topic on which you base your blog therefore should display evidence that there is a demand for the subject to begin with. If your research indicates a weak demand for the subject then don't expect to have much success.

Demand absolutely must be there or all your efforts will be futile!

Income Potential

After establishing there is a strong enough interest in your subject matter you need to determine if people are willing to pay for such information or services.

When you're doing your research to determine demand check to see if there are consistent 'offers or solicitations' along with the search results you find. If so how many do you come across and are they from different sources or just a few. The more solicitations you find from a varying sources the more likely you can monetize this niche.

It stands to reason if people aren't buying then advertisers simply won't waste their time marketing to these people.

If people are not willing to pay for whatever product(s) or service(s) the niche may offer it's unlikely you will be able to make money in that particular market. Time to walk away and find another niche!

Knowing how to create a blog that will make you money is first recognizing the importance of careful market research. It is equally important to select a niche market that can be handily monetized since the intent of all business blogs is of course to make money. By combining all 3 of the key components we discussed here today along with a consistent investment of your effort there is no reason you shouldn't be able to make money blogging.
