Every year, there comes a niche that takes over the market completely. A few years ago (by a few we mean a decade or so) it was all about social media and how it could boost sales and connect people.
Recently, it is all about drones, 3D printing,and survival. The reason they are called trends is that they come and go. However, some trends seem to have some staying power.
- Healthy living
- Romantic advice
- Saving money
You know, the sort of things that people need on a day to day basis. You might ask yourself, ‘why wouldn’t a blogger choose any one of these evergreen trends to focus on?’ It does make sense considering the fact that healthy living or the global wellness market is now worth $3.4 trillion!!
Yes, focusing on evergreen niches like wellness and romance is a great idea. The only problem is that a million other people have the same idea as you. This means that the competition in those niches is not only fierce, but it is also borderline insane.
You need to ‘niche down’! This means you need to find a sub-niche within the popular niches that haven’t been completely exploited and saturated. With that in mind, here are the top trending niches for 2018.
Trending Niches for 2018
The idea behind a trend is that it should be something that a substantial percentage of the masses is interested in or wants to learn. That is why some of the best trendsare mined from news articles.
For example, if you are a political writer, one of the best topics to focus on right now is the G7 and the ‘Trump-Kim Summit.’
While these make for great new cycles and might well be replaced by something else tomorrow, the truth is that a good percentage of the world will want to know more about these two things. Mostly because:
- They want to show-off and tell their friends how much they are ‘in the know’ about such things
- They actually want to learn how this will affect their day to day lives
- They want to learn the history of such things,so they have a better understanding of how the world works
Whatever the reason for someone being interested in any given topic, the more recent and relevant it is the more people will be interested in reading more about it. With that in mind, here are the most trending topics in 2018.
Yes, it’s an ‘iffy’ topic,but shying away from it does no one no good. So far, nine states have legalized Marijuana, and another 15 are set to quickly follow suit. This is a hot-button issue,and those make for the best blog posts.
Creating a blog that offers all the information about weed and its legalization will definitely be a lucrative business model right about now.
