Mike Pearson, author of Stupid Simple SEO, has created a new course called Niche Site Academy – and the doors are open for a limited time!
From now through Friday you can sign up for this course and learn how to select, structure, and create targeted content for your niche.
As a general rule in blogging – the tighter your niche, the easier it is to build a successful blog.
The number one mistake that most bloggers make (including myself) is to write about a wide range of topics.
Yesterday I was watching a blogger interview where the blogger had a site about monarch butterflies.
His site encompassed both raising these butterflies and also creating a butterfly garden.
On the surface, this seemed like a pretty tight niche, but he realized that he actually had two niches – because the people who want to create butterfly gardens are not necessarily interested in raising the butterflies.
So he split his site into two different sites.
Why Having a Tight Blogging Niche is Important
For you, as a blogger, having a tight niche makes it easier to create content, communicate with your audience and a bonus is that the search engines will learn what your site is about very quickly and send you targeted traffic.
When you know WHY people signed up for your email list – it is easier to send out content that you know they are interested in.
My own site – Almost Practical – is very broad, and I have struggled over the years with making it grow – for these very reasons.
If I had to start over, I would pick a tight niche and stick with it.
But sometimes that is easier said than done.
What You Will Learn In Niche Site Academy
In this course he teaches you
- how to find a niche,
- how to set up a niche site,
- how to create your site structure,
- how to do keyword research,
- and how to create the content.
This step by step guidance can help you get up and running quickly and stay on track.
Niche Site Academy is only open a few times per year – and right now is one of those times.
But it's only here until Friday.
So, if you are struggling with your niche then check it out while the doors are still open.
