Blueprint To Build A Niche Store That Makes Money
Micro Niche Sites are websites that have a very specific focus on a particular topic. Hence to start a niche site, you must have a specific topic first. For Example, If you want to start a site on Health then Weight Loose, Pimple Removal are the specific topics of it. It is always advisable to start a blog or website on a specific topic rather than a general one.
Wondering? How to find this specific topic? Don’t worry we will help you.
Selecting a Niche Topic
Have you ever heard the term ‘Work Break Down Structure’? In WBS, a project is broken down into small components which can be easily managed by a team. The same concept is applicable here. To find the specific topic, You need to break down the particular subject into small components to the extent it becomes manageable for you.
Let us understand this with the help of an example.
Suppose you want to start an online store or blogging site on’Fashion‘. You can break down this industry into two-part say Male and Female. Next, further divide it into different parts say Clutch, Shoes, T-Shirts, Earrings etc.
Now, select any one of this subdivided topics and start making money from it.
Yes, if you want, then you can even further divide these topics. For example, you can further divide the Shoes into a particular type or color. You can start an online store selling Red Color Shoes only.
In our case, we divided Fashion into Male and Female and then Female Fashion into Clothing and finally Clothing into Embroidery Designs.
Remember, EmbroideryShristi is not about the Fashion or Clothing business. It is an online store selling Embroidery Designs only.
