100+ Best profitable blog niches That Make Money
Let’s dive into the list of 100+ most profitable blog niche ideas!
1. Food / recipes
Food blogs are incredibly successful, because they solve a very simple yet universal problem that we all have: what’s for dinner? Or what can I cook this week?
Most of us will go do a quick search on Google or Pinterest to find new recipe ideas.
And that’s where food blogs come in. They provide a lot of value and they keep their readers coming back for more ideas.
If you’ve been toying with the idea of sharing your recipes, but weren’t sure if it’s profitable: absolutely YES, go for it!
You can niche down even more depending on your target audience or a certain dietary style or a certain type of cooking (baking, roasting etc.)
2. Healthy eating
The healthy eating niche ties in a bit with the food blog one, but it’s more focused on what makes the recipes healthy.
You can take regular recipes we all make and put your own spin on them to make them healthier.
Share lists of easy tips that people can follow to live a healthier lifestyle through nutritious food. Share tips on how to eat less sugar. These are just a few examples of what you could post about on your healthy eating blog.
This niche is super profitable because a lot of people need help leading healthier lives. If you can help them get there faster, in digestible steps 🙂 – then you’ve got a profitable blog on your hands.
The baking niche is a more focused one related to food blogs.
